One Way (Inter City) Rentals in USA

It is often possible (but not always) to rent a a car from one location and return the car to another location.  Not all locations participate in this scheme and it is not possible with all car groups. This has to be arranged at the time of reservation.

The actual cost of renting a car on a one way basis is quoted during the booking process as a 'drop off' fee, but is payable locally when you pickup the car.

Extra Cost of One Way Car Rental (Drop off charge)

There is no extra cost when cars are picked up and returned to locations within Florida or within California.   There is also no extra cost for one way rentals between participating Dollar/Thrifty Corporate locations between California, Arizona and Nevada. The one important exception is rentals from San Francisco area where one way fees are applied as shown on quotation pages.

Drop Off Fees for other locations

Distance (See below for example mileages) Alamo Rent A Car Dollar Rent A Car
0 to 200 miles $99 $75
201 to 500 miles $150 $100
501 to 1000 miles $300 $250
Over 1000 miles $750 $500

Exception:  The above drop fees do not apply to Hawaii, please ask for applicable fees.

All one way fees are payable locally when you pickup the car and are subject to change without notice, and local taxes and fees are additional.
