With a one way car rental through Autoshuren.nl you can enjoy the freedom and flexibility that car rental has to offer. A one-way car rental allows you to return the rental car at a different location than where you picked it up.

With one-way car rentals, there are usually extra charges, also known as drop-off charges. The amount of these charges varies by location. If there are drop-off fees at the time of booking, you will find this information when you request the price, on the invoice and on the voucher. It is important to note that drop-off fees are payable locally and do not include local taxes. However, in certain cases, such as within Florida or California, drop-off fees may not apply. If you have questions about your desired one-way, you can request a quote on Autoshuren.nl or contact our customer service team.

One ways in Europe

In most European countries it is possible to return the rental car at another location, although the cost may vary from country to country. Drop-off fees may apply for rentals of less than a week, but one way for longer periods may be free of charge. When requesting a rate, any drop-off fees will be displayed under the car rental rate. You can even do a one-way between different countries, allowing you to combine several countries in one trip. Within the Balkan region, it is often possible to cross the border. International one-ways are popular there. One-ways between Croatia, northern Macedonia or Albania, for example, are available upon request. International one-ways between Denmark, Sweden and Norway are also possible if you apply to us. If you are vacationing from the Netherlands, you can also consider returning the rental car in another European country. Do not hesitate to contact our customer service; our staff will be happy to help you.

One ways North America

The United States and Canada are subject to some rules and exceptions regarding one-way car rentals. For example, a one-way with Economy car type is not possible in North America. Also useful to know is that within Florida and California there are often no drop-off fees. Also, between San Francisco Airport and Los Angeles or Las Vegas Airport (and vice versa), there are usually no drop-off fees.

One way between the USA and Canada 

At Autoshuren.nl it is usually possible to pick up a rental car in the United States and return it in Canada, or vice versa. However, some restrictions apply. There are a limited number of car types that allow this, and availability is limited, so these reservations are often on request. Popular one-way routes include from Seattle to Vancouver, Toronto to Buffalo, and New York to Canada. If you are unsure if drop-off fees apply, please contact our customer service team for more information.

One way car rental Australia

For most locations in Australia, one-way car rentals are allowed, with the exception of car rentals from the Northern Territory, Tasmania and Western Australia. For popular coastal routes, it is possible to pick up the car in cities such as Sydney or Melbourne and return it in Cairns or Brisbane. In most of these cities, you have a choice between airport and city rental locations.

Options in South America 

If you are traveling to Costa Rica or Nicaragua, you can take advantage of the Inter-Countries Service and combine these countries into one trip. Using this service, you can easily exchange the car at the border and continue your trip. Adding Panama to the trip is also possible, where you may have to cover a small part at the border by bus and cab.

Crossing the boarder

In most cases you can cross the border by rental car. Nevertheless, we advise you to let one of the Autoshuren.nl staff know during the reservation. There are some destinations and companies that do not allow you to cross the border with the car. If you do cross the border where this is not allowed, your insurance will expire. In case of damage this can cause problems and of course you (and we) would like to avoid this.

In Europe it is not a problem to drive across the border, and also in America and Canada you are allowed to cross the border with a rental car. But it is not allowed, for example, to travel from Europe to North Africa with a Autoshuren.nl rental car, or from the USA to Mexico. In South America, you may have to specify this when picking up the car or even when making the reservation, as there are costs involved.
