Thread: cheap car rentals for 24 year old driver

    Default cheap car rentals for 24 year old driver

    Anyone know of a cheap Manhattan based rental car agency?

    I'm 24, renting an SUV for a week, and I'm desperately trying to avoid the $50 "underage surcharge" that most of the national (Thrifty, Enterprise, Dollar, etc) agencies charge drivers that are under 25.... which would end up being upwards of $300 on top of the actual weekly rental fee + gas & taxes.

    I have a pretty clean driving record (well, at least the past 36 months or so have been pretty accidents/tickets). And the reason I'm renting is because I am bring my labrador with me... no planes for her

    I know that some local Manhattan agencies might charge a slightly higher rental fee, but it would definitely be worth my while to pay a higher rental than deal with the underage fee.

    as someone who rents on a weekly basis for work,

    $300 for an SUV for a week (assuming 5 days) is a pretty good rate! I normally pay about $230 for 4 days for an intermediate car in Tampa.
