For example, you can rent a car from Hertz for four days from Phoenix to San Francisco for only $78.11 total  — including all taxes and fees; and the car class can be economy, compact, midsize, standard or full size.

Other car rental companies — such as Budget, Alamo and Enterprise — are also offering similar rates; and they may have similar terms and conditions as Hertz. Dollar and Thrifty are offering rental rates as low as $4.98 per day — or as low as $4.73 per day if you pay in advance. Avis offers a rate of $11.99, as described later in this article.

Summary

I have had bad customer service experiences with Dollar and Thrifty in the past and have not patronized either of them in years; so I personally would not rent from them despite rates as low as $4.73 per day.

I wanted to get the word out as soon as possible if you are able to take advantage of this offer — but although the rates are quite good, they are not as low as the rates if you rent a vehicle one way out of Florida, where rental car rates are as low as $4.95 per day.
