Anyone familiar with fly and drive vacations?
You go out or back in a rental car, and do the other leg of the trip with a one-way flight. I looked at this for a couple of cities. The furthest city from me is either San Diego or Seattle. So I priced things for San Diego. A one-way plane ticket was $177 (plus $20 for a checked bag). That much was good news. But then I checked one-way car rental (for mid- or intermediate size car, ~ Toyota Corolla). Thrifty and Enterprise came in at about $1,650. Hertz was about $1,800. Alamo about $1,950.
Are there any tips for getting better car rates?
