Very short-term car access

I need a car to drive myself a total of 25 mi/day for 8 weeks, September through early November in eastern Pennsylvania. I’m strapped for cash. Is the best option to lease a car? I have minimal experience with this. How do I go about it?

I don’t think you can lease a car for just 8 weeks.

There are long term rentals from the car rental agencies. And there are some bargain places like rent-a-wreck.

Second the motion on rent-a-wreck. In any case you’ll need a credit card. Oops!
