Throughout the pandemic, we'll keep publishing news to help you navigate the state of travel today (like whether travel insurance covers the coronavirus), as well as stories about places for you to put on your bucket list once it's safe to start going more far-flung.
Car Rentals for $10 a Day? Road Trip!
One-way car rentals from Florida to cities up the East Coast cost as little as $10 per day between April and June, thanks to several new promotions aimed at moving a surplus of vehicles. Hertz, Budget, National, and Avis are all running similar deals—and they’re skipping the extra fee for different-city drop-offs. Out West, Hertz is running a $30-per-day sale in Arizona.
Save $160 on Next Year’s Epic Pass
It’s easy, especially if you’re skiing this spring. From now until April 12, turn in your spring lift ticket to an Epic Pass office and they’ll deduct its value (up to $160) if you buy next season’s pass. And swoon—the 2015–2016 Epic Season Pass is already on sale for $769, so you could snag next winter’s lift tickets for $609.
