Actually, the reservation I have is an outstanding rate compared to what I had booked previously. Literally, it's over $800 cheaper because Avis matched Alamo's drive-out deal for my (potential) one-way trip out of Florida.

By the way, your German company may or may not have a better deal. But, that deal is entirely irrelevant if your pick-up and/or drop-off locations don't have Sixt offices.

Wow! It seems Sixt just started a FL driveout, including the chance to return to Battery Park in Manhattan. This seems to be available until the end of May.

I think he was trying to say that is useless if there is no office in your destination city. Then, it doesn't matter how cheap it is, since there is no place to bring the car.

What seems unusual is that Sixt in Battery Park still only shows Cadillacs to reserve online, but seems to be able to accept one-ways from the FL driveout in all the usual categories. So, where do those cars then go?

FL cars didn't arrive to BPC yet...
As to Euro-brands, I was told they're only being sold (no matter what my reservation stated). If they do rent somebody one, kindly lmk! I'm still in FL thru 4/26

not a matter of beliefs. Matter of price, which is lowest on this carrier in the current FL driveout
