A similar offer is currently in effect for renting vehicles one way from Florida to locations in much of the eastern United States — although the rates are not as inexpensive as last year

I wrote in this article that one of the 8 tips in which you can save money on renting cars is to rent one from Florida for $9.95 — the same is true for Arizona — so anything less expensive is still a superior deal.

This sale with Avis starts on Sunday, April 1, 2018 and ends on Thursday, May 31, 2018. Last year, the offer extended into June; but the rate increased another five dollars per day. That does not seem to be available for this year.
