    Is there a program that will search a specific pickup location with a specific time and date AND a specific time and date for drop off with no location for the cheapest price available?

    So in other words I want to pickup at Chicago ORD at 6pm on August 30th and have the POSSIBILITY of dropping it off anywhere at 6pm on September 11th to get a good deal on the rental rate.

    Thanks

    None that I know of and I am pretty sure no such animal would ever be available in our lifetime..
    Airline booking engines are complicated enough. Can you imagine a car booking engine for every rental car agency (of which there are probably a multiple 20 times the number airports ) in North America?
    ( you could probably drive to Tierra del Fuego in Argentina in 11 days).

    Probably have to have a destination in mind.

    What about negotiating at the counter if there's an out of state plate on their lot that needs to go back to where it started out at? Ultimately the rate is pretty high for a local pickup during the time period I'll need it.

    That is a big ymmv. But if you get a nice guy the possibilities are infinite!

    It’s almost always smarter to prepay for a rental car when you book, rather than at the agency counter in Chicago. Not only are you likely to get a discount, but, assuming that your quote was in dollars, you’ll know you’re paying the exact amount you were quoted. In any case, if you don't wish to do that, just find the best car rental price here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=hotels.car.rentals.flights.ukasoft&hl=en
