A LoyaltyLobby reader suggested that we should do a Fabulous Fridays about National’s one-way deals between select airports and city centers.
Car rental companies often have specials for car rentals to/from Florida and other Southern States. This is the first time that I have come across major offering rentals for ten bucks.
You can access National’s page for these specials here.
Note that many of these rentals are merely for 12 hours. Useful for getting to/from the airport and running some errands along the way.
Here are the current specials:
And details of the San Francisco offer:
- Rates starting at $9.99 base rate per day
- San Francisco International Airport to Downtown (San Francisco Moscone Convention Center, O’Farrell St. or Union Square): Pickup must occur on Thursday or Friday
- Downtown (San Francisco Moscone Convention Center, O’Farrell St. or Union Square) to San Francisco International Airport: Pickup must occur on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday.
- 12 hour maximum
- No coupon code required
These are excellent deals for those too that perhaps would like to up their status with National and take advantage of their rental promotions.
It would be cheaper to rent a car and drive between the city center and airport than using a cab or Uber/Lyft.
