Every autumn, the major car rental companies hold what is known as the “Arizona drive-in.” At this time, they move thousands of cars from western states to meet demand for the peak winter rental season in the Grand Canyon State. All in all, this is a great time to score a cheap one-way car rental to Arizona.
