So, I'm currently in the planning stage of a trip from St. Louis to Dallas (and back) the first weekend in March. My car won't make it and it's too expensive to fly, so I'm considering renting a car. Have any of you ever experienced a driving-out-of-state fee? From what car company? How much was it? If you haven't had one (because it wasn't charged, not because you stayed in the state), which company did you use? I'm already facing an under-25 fee, and I'm worried that this is going to end up being so expensive I should have just flown in the first place, especially since it's almost 1500 miles round trip. That said, is there something else I should be considering?
