I wonder why he didn't do it as a one-way. Might have cost more in normal times, but this was in the era of nationwide coronavirus $49/day one-way specials. And much faster and more relaxing coming...

What seems more odd to me is why you would credit this to Enterprise Plus instead of National's Emerald Club. The percent discount is the same, but the rewards are much better.

"Due time" is the question here. 12 noon in NY is 9 AM in CA. There are a lot of one-ways between just those 2, for example. Hertz would force you to return at the same actual time, not the local...

National by far is better. Rewards based on the number of transactions, not cost. Redeem for expensive one-ways, while choosing to take away the nicest car in the row.

It depends. SUVs and vans are usually in the $25/day and up range for this one-way special. Cars typically start out in the $15/day range early in the season, and then drop to $12, then $10, and...

Where have all the cars gone?

Sold off whenever possible. Probably warehoused or parked in shopping malls, stadiums, etc when not.

If you book with Alamo, you won't get National credits. They share the same distribution center(s) in many markets, but there are key differences in the customer experience.

No excuse for this, ever. Imagine if this was a one-way itinerary, with more than one stop, so even an "expensive Uber" would not be a practical option.

That's exactly what you're seeing. Demand suddenly dropped to near zero, so cars are being sold off prematurely whenever possible. Demand...
