One-way car rental

Picking up the rental car in location A and dropping it off in location B is called one-way rental. This service gives you even more freedom, flexibility and time to roam your holiday destination. One-way rental is possible in most destinations – although you must always request it in advance – and it is often free of charge for rental periods starting at 3 days in length. Some destinations use a surcharge; if this is the case at your destination, the rates will be stated in the rental conditions. The surcharge must be paid at the destination and is therefore not included in the all-in rental price.

One-way rental gives you maximum flexibility

  • Picking up the car at the airport and dropping it off in the city (or vice versa)
  • Picking up the car in one city or state and dropping it off in another city or state.
  • International one-way: picking up the car from one rental centre and dropping it off in another country. This option is usually only available on request and the car must be dropped off at the same partner as the one from which you collected it. The rental conditions contain the rates for international one-way at your chosen destination. If you want to book an international one-way rental, please contact us by telephone. We will be happy to explain the possibilities to you.

‘Short cut’ from the US to Canada!

International one-way from the US to Canada is often not permitted. As Rent a Smile specialists, we've obviously found a ‘short cut’ for that, because it is permitted via the beautiful Buffalo/Seattle route! If you want to request this one-way or another specific one, our booking team will be happy to help.
