One-way car rentals are now much more common than they used to be, in part because they are more affordable than ever. At RentaCarNow.com, you will find a variety of options if you are looking for a one-way rental, as in one with different pick-up and drop-off locations. To check the rates for one-way rentals, all you need to do is check the box that says “Drop off location is different” on the main rental reservation page.
Here are a couple tips to keep in mind if you are looking to save money on a one-way rental. First, be sure to check the rates for non-airport locations. The rates at these locations are often cheaper to begin with, plus you won’t have to pay the taxes and surcharges that often come along with an airport rental. Also, if you plan to drive from one location to another and stay at that destination for more than a day or two, it sometimes makes sense to have two separate rentals. For the first leg of your trip, rent the cheapest (and likely most fuel-efficient) car you can find. Then when you arrive, you can return that car and pick up a second rental car. The reason is that a one-way rental for one day is often cheaper than a one-way rental for multiple days, so you can often save money with two rentals. Also remember that sometimes there are drop-off fees at some locations for one-way rentals, so be sure that you understand the full price of the rental before you decide the most economical way to do it.
