What City In Florida Will Your Family Explore This Spring Or Summer. Our Florida Fly Drive Is Back!
Wow. oh wow our Dinah Shore special fly drive is back! Our Florida special is back for spring and early summer travel. This is a great deal for a family of four heading to Florida when school lets out in June. How this offer works is that you pick up a car in Florida, but you must return it outside of the state of Florida.
The daily car rental rate for a full size car can be as little as $10 a day plus taxes. Keep in mind some car rental taxes and fees are highway robbery. Some of the major car rental companies will even let you drive your car all the way to the West Coast. That's why we call this our Dinah Shore special from her 1952 commercial song "See the USA in your Chevrolet!
Let me give you an idea of how frugal of a getaway this deal can be this spring or early summer for a family of four. During April and May on select dates Southwest Airlines is selling airfares with all taxes flying nonstop from Dallas to Ft. Lauderdale for only $49 one-way. Airfare for a family of four comes to a total of $196. We have several car rental companies that allow you to take advantage of this offer. We priced a full size car being picked up on April 14 in Ft. Lauderdale, and returning it one week later, on April 21 in Dallas. The total for the seven day car rental was $139. So now the total cost of four one-way airfares, and a one week car rental comes to $335.
We priced a seven day car rental both picking up and dropping off in Ft. Lauderdale the same week from the same company. Avis wants $491 with all taxes included for the exact same full size car rental. What is amazing is with our deal you get your airplane tickets and car rental for $156 less than the car rental alone.
This is one great way to see a little bit of America this year, and even better news; you're not putting all that mileage on your own car! Some of the rental car companies are allowing you to keep the car for up to 21 days for the same low daily rate.
