Firefly Car Rental Crosses the Atlantic with $9.99 Deals
Next time you're looking at rental car rates, add another company to the list, as it looks like Hertz is bringing its budget brand stateside. Firefly Car Rental is now available in the nifty fifty, and is already busy on an expansion plan.
The very first outpost was down in Orlando, but it looks like Firefly is already keen to take on large cities around the US. Reservations are now open to one and all in Ft. Lauderdale, as well as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, and more. Weekend rates are as low as $9.99 per day in Orlando through much of October, as we can only assume they’re eager to introduce the brand and get butts into driver's seats.
By the end of the year Firefly—and Hertz—are hopeful that they’ll operate at least 20 different locations across the country. That’s in addition to the 40 spots they already have over in Europe, as the brand has already established itself in Spain, France, Italy, Germany, the UK, Switzerland, and Portugal.
There's just one issue. Be sure that you've got the right Firefly when you book, because "Firefly" is also the name of a budget airline in Asia—think of it as a little brother of Malaysia Airlines—and that would be quite the oops if you reserved the wrong one.
