The Best Ranking Car Rental Companies In The U.S. Are…

There’s a lot of stress that comes with traveling. You have to get through the security checkpoint and then hang out in an airport or airport lounge that’s way too crowded and may be going through a huge renovation. Unless you have first class or business class, you’re jammed into a plane. Hotels have also made for less happy experiences, especially if you’re into the points & miles thing, by changing the rules about stays, or, well, I can just say #Bonvoyed and most people reading this will understand what I mean.

Avis Is Having A Promotion That Sounds Very Familiar

I tagged an email from Avis that I received in September but somehow forgot about it until I went to clean out my mailbox. The basic premise of the promotion is that for every two rentals of an intermediate car or larger lasting two nights or more, you’ll receive a free rental day certificate.

‘Tis The Season For Cheap One-Way Car Rentals – Prices Start As Low As $9.99/Day!

Just like clockwork, every autumn, migrations to Florida and Arizona happen. Except it’s not snowbirds, or even real birds, that are migrating.

It’s rental cars.

While it’s cold in much of the rest of the country, it stays toasty warm in Florida and Arizona, so, of course, a lot of people flock to those states during the winter months. Lots of those tourists will want to rent cars, so instead of bringing them here by the truckload, the car rental companies make it financially lucrative for customers to drive their cars from up north to select cities in the Sunshine State and the Grand Canyon State.

And the time of the year that they do this is now.
