  1. Default Where to rent a cheap car?

    Im driving a ONE WAY trip from oakland to Boston this summer.. im flying out.. meeting my girlfriend there, and going to rent a car to drive back. A 2 week rental costs $200 if you return to the same place, but around $1000+ if you return it elsewhere. I"ve only looked on all the major car rental sites and like orbitz, travelocity, etc.. ANyone have any advice on something that would be cheaper??

    We always start with Budget Rent a Car,, then use the advantage of online transparency to compair prices and fees.
    Watch for the insurance gouging. It's still a popular trick with the rent-a-car co's.

    If that doesnt work, then car ferring service's will sometimes have a car that needs to be drivin back east.
    Those offers we find in the local newspapers.

    Default If you have AAA

    If you are an AAA member, you may contact one of your local AAA office Travel Agents, or, they may be able to assist you getting a better rate. The other option is to go directly to the rental company's website (hertz, national, budget, enterprise, avis, etc.). Sometimes you may be able to get a good price there as well.
