So basically FL has a crapload of rental cars and they want to offer discounted rates to transport those cars North?

Am I missing something?

I don't believe you are. That sounds about right.

While on the subject of rental cars, anyone have any tips on getting a good deal while in Florida? I am taking my dad down for spring training and we are landing in Tampa on Easter Sunday and staying through Friday. I've tried all the websites...priceline, orbitz, and travelocity. Any suggestions? Any help is appreciated.

I usually use Enterprise or National/Alamo while in Tampa; be sure to use their web site directly.
