I know most of us are hunkered down in one place or another as we practice social distancing. However, there are many who are not “home” and many are trying to avoid airports and the confined space of airplanes. If this is you, or you just need a one-way rental car deal, here are some great deals for you.
One-Way Rental Car Deals All Over the US
We normally see such one-way rental car deals each year around this time for travel from Arizona or Florida – so rental companies can get their vehicles back from where snowbirds dropped them.
But, in light of the current events going on, rental car companies are making available one-way rental car deals with set prices. This represents hundreds of dollars in savings over what it would normally cost on one-ways. In fact, some of these prices in certain markets are even better than roundtrip rentals.
Not all companies are offering this but I will link below the ones that are. It should be noted as well that many companies are waiving the underage driver fee as well.
Great One-Way Rental Car Deals
This is how this works. The rates are set at specific amounts (the same for all the companies) based on the vehicle type. There will be facility charges, taxes, and fees on top of those as well but that is no different from normal.
