What is the difference between a one-way car rental and a round trip? 

A round trip is when you pick up and return your rental car to the same place. A one-way car rental lets you pick up from one place, such as an airport, and drop off in another location, say downtown or near your hotel.

Can I choose the car type when I rent a car one-way?  

Yes, you can pick the car to fit your trip. For an epic camping trip in a national park, an SUV has the practical space and handling to tackle rugged roads. For a bit of wow on that special occasion, a luxury or convertible brings the style and fun. Want to save on fuel costs? An economy, mid-size, or compact car is perfect.

Where should I visit when I rent a car for a one-way trip?  

Fly into LAX and pick up a car rental in Los Angeles to drive along the Pacific Coast Highway to the Big Sur for an incredible coastal journey, taking in some of the most famous beaches in the world. Rent a car in San Francisco and begin an epic week-long road trip to Seattle to grab a fresh cup of coffee and take in the sights before flying back.

Do one-way car rentals have free cancellation?  

Yes, many of the car rental deals for one-way trips include free cancellation. You also have pay at pick-up offers, so you only pay at the collection point and won’t be charged a fee if you cancel before you arrive.
