last chance reminder: if you seek to capitalize on drive-in daily rate of approx. $9, your rental must start before midnite TODAY. You then have 2 weeks, before checking-in anywhere in FL! (I find that the lowest daily rate is on rental of exactly 13 days). Good luck!

if anyone sees occasional "unannounced" lo one-way to FL rate (yet this winter), kindly lmk. For my pre-Xmas trip from NYC, I managed to grab $37 Spirit fare southbound, and $39 Jetblue fare Northbound - so NOT driving. But I might need Xmas drive-in, and pre-PresidentDay drive-in in Feb. I've never personally seen such late winter opportunities; but Auto Enthusiast has; let's hear - should it show this winter. I'm dumbfounded how everyone but the Hertz-group would end up with no drive-in program this whole winter...Hoping to catch Enterprise-group rates, so that to rack up a few 1-2-F points

The Enterprise group rates had come much earlier and on shorter notice this year. It was also more expensive, at $18/day plus tax.

Where I live, I noticed a sudden increase in a large number of cars parked helter skelter all over the nearest Enterprise locations, around Sept/Oct. Many seemed older and worn, with out of state plates. This was soon followed by the drivein to FL and the Piedmont South (ex Charlotte). Approximately 2 weeks later, the excess cars were gone, and the drivein rates disappeared.

If this area receives an unexpected increase in the number of inbound one-ways, such as after a snowstorm, or during a holiday season, it could happen again. Watch it closely with AutoSlash.

Dollar/Thrifty still has availability. Pick up from any NYC airport, return to any FL airport. Fullsize is $15/day plus tax. Max 2 weeks. Latest pickup seems to be Sat Dec 21, which means latest return is currently Sat Jan 4.

interesting; whoever tries Thrifty (as opposed to Dollar, Thrifty is running a hell of a promo thru 12/31 to reward any rental with 1 future free day) - see if 10% or 15% code works. I'd love to ascertain which. It seemed I got 15% off my first rental

could the lack of drive-ins this year (aside from Hertz group) be that others took delivery of new fleet IN FL?
