We recently needed a rental car while our car was in the shop. I checked the online deals and they were all very high, perhaps because it is summer or perhaps our locale. I remembered that U-Haul advertises $29.95/day rentals. This does not include mileage, so be sure you will not be driving many miles.
Your best choices are a large van or a large pickup truck. They are not the easiest to drive, but our total was way less than the bargain car rentals. Also you do not need a large credit card deposit, only the estimate of the actual cost.
