$1 Rentals to Florida

Thrifty Car Rental needs some of its inventory moved to Florida for the peak winter season. Rather than hiring drivers or putting cars on trucks, Thrifty is offering $1-per-day mid-size rentals to travelers who are willing to take off soon and drive one way to the Sunshine State, reports Budget Travel.

Pick-up areas are limited to three Texas airports (Corpus Christi, Houston Hobby, and Houston Intercontinental) and three New England airports (Boston, Burlington, and Providence). Drop-off locations are limited to nine major airports in Florida, including Key West, Orlando, Tampa, Miami, or Jacksonville. This last-minute offer is available through Nov. 15, and there is a seven-day maximum rental period

In the past, car rental agencies have offered similar seasonal one-way car rental deals, but more often than not, the daily rates have been $10. National Car Rental has a one-way to Florida promotion, but its cheapest cars are going for $30 a day, according to Budget Travel.
