I am being considered for an assignment in Kula, HI. The pay is okay, but they are saying I am to pay $300-400 a week for private housing and need to rent my own car. It is my first travel assignment and I wasn't really considering traveling except that it is Hawaii and the timing is right for personal reasons (my wedding just got cancelled and I just need to get the heck out of dodge ASAP). It is in my specialty, which I love doing and I'd love to get my feet wet. Anyone else had a similar experience or is this completely unacceptable?
