What is a One Way Fee?

Posted on January 9, 2012 by . 0 comments

A one way fee is a charge levied by car hire companies when you pick up your rental car at one location and drop off at a different depot. The fee is a fixed fee and does not vary on the distance the depots are from each other.

The fee is charged to cover to cost of the car hire company returning the car to its original location (if necessary). Usually, one way fees are charged locally and are around £25-50 depending on the rental company.
