Pick up your car in one place and return it to another location?
That is possible and in the car rental sector that is called One Way rental. This means, for example, that you are flying to Alicante, picking up your rental car there at the airport and returning the car at Barcelona airport. Incidentally, this option not only applies to airports but also other pick-up and drop-off locations.
such as train stations or city locations, offer the One Way option. Auto Europe offers not only One Way bookings between different destinations in one country, but in some cases also One Way bookings between different countries. For international One Ways, however, a surcharge is always charged.
One Way supplements explained:
If you are looking for a rental car through our booking machine for a One Way trip, you will always receive a notification on the screen about whether or not the One Way is possible and the costs. A supplement is customary and the amount depends on the rental company, but sometimes included in the rental price. Auto Europe will always mention the possible surcharge on your voucher, so you will not be faced with unpleasant surprises.
Depending on the landlord:
The One Way surcharge is shown below the total price on the booking screen. Once you have made your choice, you can choose to pay the total price plus the One Way surcharge to Auto Europe or only the rental price to Auto Europe and the One Way surcharge locally to the lessor when collecting the rental car. Do you think the surcharge is too high,
National One Way bookings If you book a national One Way, depending on the rental company, there is usually a surcharge attached to the rent. This surcharge is indicated directly below the total rental price during the booking. Auto Europe will also mention the possible surcharge on the voucher that is sent to you.
If you find the surcharge too high:
you can cancel your booking for free and receive the amount refunded if you do so earlier than 48 hours before the pick-up time. If you are thinking of a One Way, try picking up the car on one place in the country and return it as far as possible to another location in the country. You then make a wonderful road trip that allows you to enjoy your host country as much as possible.
International One Way bookings All rental companies charge a surcharge for an international One Way car hire, ie for a car rental that starts in one country and ends in another country.
The surcharge, the height of which depends on the specific landlord, is indicated directly below the total rent during the booking. Auto Europe will state the surcharge on the voucher that you will receive by e-mail. If you find the surcharge too high,
you can cancel your booking for free and receive the amount refunded if you do so earlier than 48 hours before the pick-up time. Although international One Way allowances seem to be high, it is wise to compare this allowance with an airline ticket, so that you can make a good judgment about the costs.
Remember that a road trip obviously has a different value,
