New York City Tops Rental Rates During Christmas

This Christmas holiday weekend, car rental rates will increase in certain U.S. cities. New York City topped the list with a $102 per day rental rate, according to a new survey by CheapCarRental.

The biggest rate hike occurs in Miami. Generally, renters can find a car for less than $15 per day, but rates will increase to $59 per day over the Christmas holiday season. That is an increase of more than 300%, according to the survey.

The survey looked at the car rental rates of 30 popular U.S. destinations over the Christmas holiday (Dec. 23 to Dec. 27). The list reflects each city’s rate for the cheapest available rental car at the respective airport.

CheapCarRental created a list of the top 10 U.S. destinations with the highest car rental rates during the Christmas weekend, along with a percentage-wise comparison to regular prices. Regular prices reflect the average rental car rates for the month of January.
