One Way Pickup Truck Rental: 10+ Rental Companies That Offer It

Short Answer: You can book a one-way pickup truck rental at several popular car rental companies, including Alamo, Avis, Hertz, Enterprise, and U-Haul. One-way rentals often charge additional mileage or drop fees and these fees can vary between locations. The available fleet of vehicles can also vary, so you may wish to call your rental location of choice to confirm it has pickup trucks and/or one-way rentals available. For more details on the companies with one-way pickup truck rentals, see below.

The Companies With One-Way Pickup Truck Rentals

Below, we outline the rental companies that offer pickup trucks that can be rented in one location and dropped off in another. Some rental companies charge additional fees for one-way rentals so be sure you ask about all costs involved before signing a rental agreement. Keep in mind that not every location will have one-way rentals available. It’s always a good idea to confirm you can rent a vehicle one way at the specific location you plan to rent from.

Alamo Rent A Car

  • Fees for one-way rentals: Depends on the rental location, drop-off location, and time of year. Alamo may charge a one-time drop charge or mileage charge on top of the rental rate, known as an “inter-city” fee. Alamo notes that one-way rentals dropped off in the same city may still be subject to additional charges.
  • Restrictions: Certain one-way rentals, notably rentals that cross international lines, are not allowed. Alamo also advises booking one-way rentals in advance.
