    One-Way Rentals (One-way Fees) – Domestic and International

There are currently two-types of one-way car hire via Auto Europe – domestic and international. When you return your car to a rental counter different to that used during pick-up, the supplier will normally charge a small one-way fee for the privilege, as predetermined in the rental terms. This can also apply even if the location is different within the actual city itself, or a different city but within the same country. Or even, a between cities in different countries (international). The one-way fee is displayed during the booking process before you make a payment. The following information will guide you through how to find this one-way charge amount.
