With the price of air travel soaring, many people are opting for close-to-home getaways instead. And with the great driving deals we've rounded up, you'll be able to pack up the car and go. Daily rentals start at just $26 and weekly from $210. Plus, stretch your dollar — and miles — a bit further with a fly-and-drive package to Boston, and more, for less than $200.
Whether you're driving cross-city or cross-country, you can save up to $30 off weekly car rentals with Hertz and Travelocity. This deal is valid on all vehicle types through December 15, with no blackout dates. Highlights include $210 a week in Chicago; and $297 a week in New York.
If you plan a weekend road trip before December 15, you can save up to $20 off weekend car rentals with Budget. When booked through Travelocity, two-day and longer rentals start at just $29 a day in L.A.; $26 a day in Orlando, and more, with rates available for Thursday through Monday rentals only.
Jet off to popular U.S. cities like Washington D.C. and Las Vegas, with car and flight packages from Travelocity. With car rentals typically as high as $300 a weekend alone, this air-inclusive deal leaves you plenty of cash for a tank of gas.
