Car Rental USA One Way

Planning to visit the USA?

Getting around big cities using public transport is possible, but if you really want to see the US beyond the city limits you need a rental car.

And if you like the idea of a road trip across the USA, but don’t want the hassle or expense of driving all the way back to your original destination, a one way car rental is the way to go.

Driving clear across America from North to South or from the East Coast to the West Coast and dropping off your hire car at your end destination will save you valuable time and money.

What you need to know about one way car rentals

There is an additional cost involved for a one way hire car which is a drop-off fee (which increases proportionally according to how far you take the vehicle from the pick-up depot).

In some instances, the rental company may insist on a longer minimum-rental period to compensate for their costs in getting the car returned to their depot.

In most cases the additional cost is more than compensated for by the convenience of a one way rental and the fact that you are avoiding the even-higher costs of driving the car back to the original pickup point (the obvious costs being fuel, accommodation, food, etc)

Of course, you could see new cities and sights on the way back, but oftentimes, these sights won’t be as significant as the ones you saw on the way over, so it may not be worth incurring extra time and expense in seeing places you may not be all that interested in.

Some ideas for USA one way car hire holidays

Some of America’s best attractions are situated well off the beaten track and take time to get to and really appreciate, which is where your one way hire car really comes in handy.

Probably the most popular drive would be Route 66, which takes you across the country from Chicago to Los Angeles.

Along the way you would visit some of America’s prime attractions such as the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Yosemite National Park and the Sonoma wine region.

The coastal drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles is an epic trip on its own, and acknowledged to be one of the most scenic coastal drives in all of America.

If you want to explore the East coast, why not pick up your hire car in New York or New Jersey, visit some historic sites on your way such as Washington DC and then finish off in Miami.

Whichever route you choose, one way car rental in the USA makes it easy and convenient to discover this diverse country.
