Yesterday night I found myself researching a little more into car rentals for the 20-24 age range, after a friend had texted me seeing if I knew of any rental promotions for pick up in NYC. Unfortunately I couldn’t find much to help my friend (since NYC area rentals seem to be exempt from these promotions), I thought I would feature some of the weekend deals that some of the car rental companies are having for those of you who might be looking for rentals or a roadtrip.
Hertz: Young Driver Promotion
For those of you who fall into my age category where you still have not hit a quarter of a century in age yet, you’ll know that renting a car for cheap is unheard of with the age surcharge that is taxed onto your rental for being under 25. The good news is that Hertz is running a young drivers promotion for U.S. and Canada locations where they waive the under 25 age surcharge fee. This is available for bookings done by September 30, 2012. The promotion code that must be applied during booking is 144314.
Enterprise: Weekend Rates Starting at $9.99/Day
Enterprise is currently running a promotion for $9.99/Day as weekend rates. That pricing grants you access to one of their economy/compact cars and includes 100 miles of travel per day. This is only valid for rentals Friday through Monday, and you must travel & return the rental by May 22, 2013. No word about when you have to book by, but I suspect this will be their fall promotion. It looks like this promotion is not available at airport locations and that “availability is limited.” For promotion details or to book, click here.
It should also be noted that Hertz has a similar weekend promotion starting at $14.99/day right now. So if you prefer Hertz, that still is a pretty good deal. (Not as good as $9.99/day though!) Note: Unfortunately you cannot stack either promotions with any other offers.
