Looking for a Rental Car?

With the rising cost of airfare and all the added fees and regulations associated with flying, I'm wondering if more people will think about taking a road trip for vacation instead of flying somewhere. Of course, driving any distance from home means you have to be sure your car is in good condition. Or, you could look into car rental and rent a nice car or mini van that will hold all your luggage. That way you won't have to put extra wear and tear on your own car. We've done that at least a couple of times, especially before we had our own mini van. It made it so much nicer to have that extra room.

Advantage Rent a Car has summer specials starting at just $20.99/day. Select a pick-up location, time and date, select your desired vehicle, and select a drop-off location, date and time, and get a quote. I guess I should plan ahead a little more, because I wanted to see what it would cost to rent a convertible over the July 4th weekend, but there aren't any available. Still, it was easy to find that out. They have a whole page listing all the different cars in the fleet with information about each one, like how many people they can carry and how many bags. I couldn't have packed much if I rented a convertible anyway.

Here's a deal: Too bad I'm not in Florida wanting to get to Chicago. They're offering a one way rental from any location in Florida to Chicago for $1 per day. Anyone in Florida looking to visit Chicago?
