Has anyone called a rental location and asked them if they have one of their cars located at "Location X" and would they offer me a decent one-way rate to bring it back to them after you use it for the amount of days you need it? Here's my situation: I really want to do an open-jaw itinerary flying from MCO-OMA, rent a car in OMA, visit Mount Rushmore drive up to ND and then take Amtrak from the western part of North Dakota into MSP, where I'll visit relatives and won't need a car, and then I'll go MSP-MCO back home. The snag so far in my plans is that it would cost me $700 for a compact car rental for 3-4 days, simply because it's a one-way rental. My dropoff location is likely to be Williston, ND. I used to work for Avis in college (15 years ago), and I know that cars are owned by certain locations, and cars on my lot owned by others were considered "foreign cars". I don't know the likelihood that a Williston based car would be in Omaha, but I suppose it would be worth a shot. If they gave me a standard rental rate for that car class (or below if a big/luxury car they wanted back), I don't care what I drive, as long as it's running properly and clean. Anyone done this before, or have other recommendations?
