Jeep or convertible rental for drive, Miami to Key West

We usually fly right in to Key West. Thought this October when we go we'd change it up, fly to Miami and then drive down. The image we have in mind...a fun ride in a jeep or convertible. Anyone know of car rental places in Miami with jeeps that will give us a one-way rental? We are going to fly home from Key West. We're not making a long drive to catch a flight home after Fantasy Fest!!!

We booked 2 one way trips from FLL to KW and back arriving 3/1 and leaving 3/6, we just turn the car in at the end of the day when we arrive in KW and pick it up the day we leave. Seemed to be a little more expensive this year, we used priceline and got a mustang thru Alamo for the way down for 94.00 and a mustang thru Budget (using Hotwire) for 108.00 on the way back up. Tried the name your own price on priceline with no real luck. Alamo and Budget both offer the electronic tolls for a minimal price I think it is a charge of $2.50 per day and the tolls incurred.

I would do the convertible. Keep in mind that there is only one road to the Keys and depending on the day, it can take hours. It's good you aren't planning on driving back to Miami after Fantasyfest as traffic back into Miami after big events like that can be horrendous. Give yourself a full day to make the drive. YOu will want to take the time to stop along the way. I recommend stopping in Islamorada at Bass Pro Shops. The have a great restaurant on the water.

Keep in mind that the rentals from sites at the airports were almost 3 times going off site. Most places are within 5 miles of the airport. So, a cab shouldn't be too expensive to get to the rental place? Has anyone else found this to be true?

We did that in May. Flew into Miami and rented a convertible. Beautiful drive. Was a nice Chrysler 200 from Alamo. Alamo was definitely the least expensive. We had also considered all the options: flying straight into KW (skipping the drive altogether), flying into Miami, renting the car and then flying back from KW etc.. You might actually find it cost effective to do the return drive back to Miami. Car rentals and flights to/from various destinations are VERY expensive. Round trips (to/from same place) are cheapest.

Just booked a convertible through Priceline for a 10 day trip in October. It was to and from Fll for $446. There was only a difference of about $120 between this and an economy car. It was also available at Hotwire for the same price.
