How Do USA Car Hire One Way Rentals Work?

Hi all,

Definition: A one way rental (OWR); is any USA car hire collected at one location but dropped off at a different location.

For example; collected from Orlando International Airport in Florida but returned to Miami International Airport.

Today’s post will cover one way rentals, how they work and how they effect your car rental price. We’ll also take a look at the suppliers for popular one way rentals and see who offers any one way rental deals.

Firstly enter your details in to our booking engine, remember to place the alternative drop location in the appropriate field.

The next page returned will show you the cost of the vehicles available with each supplier; please note that the one way rental price is not included within these rate. All one way rental charges are paid for locally directly to the supplier.

Once you’ve found the vehicle you are interested in, tick the appropriate insurance box and click on the “book now” button.

The next page shown is our one way rental alert page; this page will display to you the cost of the one way rental. Remember that one way rental charges differ per supplier, so sometimes it pays to check each suppliers charge.

The alert will ask you to confirm that you agree to the charge and then the normal booking process continues.

Remember; the one way rental charge is paid locally directly to the supplier.
