Hi Rory,
Only 700 miles? A young shaver like you should be able to drive that in a day!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, price out a round trip ticket (normally one ways are more expensive) and just don't use the return portion if you buy the car. If the cars are garbage you can always use the return portion! The cheap fares are available early Sat morning through Tuesday so you could fly out on Sat, view the cars then drive back on the Sat evening/Sunday or take a day off on the Monday and have a relaxed drive....

BTW - If you are buying from a dealer they should be able to arrange transportation. Just make sure it is on a transporter and not some knucklehead driving it back for you!!!
