Could you negotiate a "driveaway car" instead of renting? There are brokers who link up folks who want a vehicle "transported" from eg Washington DC to Kansas City, with folks who want to drive that trip.

What prices have you found? The best option is usually National as they have a flat drop off rate of $250.

The prices seem to inflate the daily rate to cover drop fee like 140 up per day - seems really expensive
