    Dollar has an excellent offer going if you are in Florida (or Mobile, AL) and want to drive north -- especially to NY.

    The price is $1 per day. The kicker is that you have to pick it up at one of the following airports:

    • Orlando (MCO)
    • Tampa (TPA)
    • Jacksonville (JAX)
    • Tallahassee (TLH)
    • Miami (MIA)
    • Fort Lauderdale (FLL)
    • Fort Myers (RSW)
    • Sarasota (SRQ)
    • West Palm Beach (PBI)
    • Pensacola (PNS)
    • Mobile, AL (MOB)

    You then have to return it at one of these locations:

    • Cleveland (CLE)
    • Philadelphia (PHL)
    • Pittsburg (PIT)
    • Newark (EWR)
    • John F Kennedy (JFK)
    • LaGuardia (LGA)
    • Manhattan E 22nd (NYA)
    • Manhattan W 52nd (NYC)
    • Manhattan 99 Charles St (NYCC04)
    • Manhattan E 87th (NYE)
    The offer is good from April 19 to May 31.

    Good deal if you were planning on a road trip.

    My guess is they have a ton of cars down there they wanna relocate and this is easier than shipping them.

    Is the rate negotiable? :D

    Yep, this is the repositioning of vehicles from the winter season to the summer season.

    This would be a great cheap way to combine a road trip with open-jaw (or 2 one-way) award travel for the east coast. Fly in to Florida and out of NYC. Sounds like a fun vacation!
