There are two types of one-way car rental with Auto Europe - domestic and international. The one-way fee is mandatory when dropping off the car hire in a location other than the pick-up location. The one-way fee amount will be determined by the supplier. You should also note that car rental suppliers will require one-way fees for international travel that will be displayed online when booking. Additionally, Auto Europe will inform you about the amount of these charges when we send you the confirmation voucher. Examples of one way fees display are presented below.
Thanks to the optimal cooperation with the local car rental companies, a domestic one-way fee from one city to another is usually free of charge as long as the maximum rental period is adhered to. A journey to another country and dropping off a car rental there is subject to international one-way fees unless indicated otherwise.
