Default Going to Florida this summer.. but there's a problem

How to get there! My car has way too many problems to be able to go 1000 miles there and back..

I only want to spend about $500 to get there.. I've looked into renting a car but Avis will not accept anyone under 25 without a major credit card. I'm going to enterprise today to see how bad they can rip me..

Ideas anyone?

There is no cost too great for love? If it costs you more, pool money. Or get married locally.

That's another option. A lot of us here are also pretty good with motor vehicles.

Visa Giftcard from TD Bank?

You can use that as a credit card and rent a car... or airplane tickets

Agree with the thinking of lhuser here - would it not make more sense to either try and fix your car or look to investing in a new one? Long term it seems like it'd make more sense to me.
