Search Car Rental
A one way trip in Europe with a rental car can be a great thing. Start off in one city and head off to see places you have decided to visit, stopping off and experiencing different cultures and landscapes, while making your way towards your final destination.
With the convenience of a one way rental though often comes a price, and depending on where your start and finish points are, there may be fees involved.
There are various main factors that suppliers use to set the price of a one way rental including:
While in some cases a one way rental can be the most affordable way of travelling from one place to another, there are often situations where the fees are quite high, even making it cheaper to catch a flight. The downside of this though, would be missing all the great scenery and excitement that comes with touring in a rental car.
The solution is simply to plan a logical itinerary for your holiday and decide what will work best for you. For example if you are travelling in a large group, then a high one way fee may still work out better value than airfares. Not to mention the convenience of having the one car the whole time.
To avoid the fees, there are a few things to consider including:
For example: a one way between Paris and Rome. This can be divided into two rentals, Paris to Nice, and then San Remo to Rome. You could then catch a train between Nice and San Remo, saving the international one way fee. Many suppliers in Europe do not charge for domestic one way rentals providing they are longer than a minimum duration, so this is an option many people choose.
