NOTE: This post refers to an expired relocation special to get vehicles from the State of Florida in Spring 2017. This special recurs in some form each year and we add new posts when reactivated by the rental car companies.
Alamo One-Way Florida Drive-Out

A couple of days ago we covered Enterprise's Florida one-way out of Florida special. Now Enterprise's sister company has followed suit with their own Florida One-Way Drive Out Deal.

Like the Enterprise special, it's valid between April 1 and May 31, 2017 for Boca Raton, Clearwater, Cocoa Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Key West, Miami, Naples, Punta Gorda, Sarasota, Tampa and West Palm, while in Daytona Beach, Disney Hotels, Melbourne, Orlando and Sanford, the deals start on April 16 and run through May 31, 2017. The offered rate of $9.95 per day applies to Economy, Compact, Intermediate, Standard and Fullsize vehicles, $19.95 per day applies to Intermediate and Standard SUVs, and $24.95 per day applies to Minivans. Even lower rates may be available at some locations!


Using Alamo's Promotion to Your Advantage

Want to know something special about these rentals with Alamo? While the return must be to a participating station outside of the State of Florida, the rentals are valid for any timeframe between 1 and 21 days. These rentals also come with unlimited miles! And there's no requirement that the rental car must leave the State of Florida on any specific day of the rental; the car could be used as a low-cost local rental in Florida for almost three weeks before heading to the return location … Alamo simply wants the vehicle to move away from Florida to the approved destination.

A snowbird who lives in Florida during the winter and moves back to the northeast during the summer is a prime candidate for this promotion. However, there are other intriguing use cases.

A renter from Washington, D.C. with an April conference in Florida could fly to the event, rent a car for the conference, and then fly back. Or … the work conference could transition directly to a vacation, multiple visits with friends and family, and access to a cheap car until the scheduled return date back in D.C. In fact, the multiple week one-way rental would often cost less than a car reserved just for the local conference!

While Alamo doesn't provide a list of participating return locations outside of Florida, a renter with the mindset of "airports in the Northeast United States" would stand a decent chance of finding one of these special drive-out opportunities. While there wouldn't be much potential for price cuts, these are about the lowest rates you'll ever find for a one-way rental, keeping the car for up to 21 days. Click here to request a quote now!
