One-Way Car Rental
Is it okay to drop off a rental car to a different location?
Yes, Budget does allow you to pick up your rental in one city and drop it off in another. When you make your reservation, just enter your preferred drop-off location to see the availability and fees for a one-way rental. If you have already booked a rental but wish to change your drop-off location, call Budget at 800-527-7000. Additional fees apply if you try to drop off your rental at a new location without prior authorization from Budget.
Budget makes one-way car rentals incredibly easy and affordable. It’s best to book one-way rentals in advance, but we can usually accommodate you if your plans change in the middle of a rental.
Requesting a One-Way Rental in Advance
Any reservation form on Budget.com allows you to book a car rental that you pick up in one city and drop off in another. Our one-way rental policy includes the following perks:
Over 600 U.S. corporate-operated locations participate, including both airport and non-airport sites. This wide selection of participating rental counters gives you the freedom to return your car rental at a different drop-off location.
The unlimited mileage program allows renters to drive almost anywhere in the U.S. without incurring mileage surcharges. Check your rate summary when you book to see if your locations participate.
Our daily rates get lower the longer you book.
How to Reserve a One-Way Rental
Reserving your one-way rental can be done in a few easy steps. First, find your pickup location. Then, if you can’t see the return location box, click the pickup location box and it should appear. Type in your drop-off location—suggestions should pop up to help you. Finalize the dates and times of your reservation, and proceed to the “Select My Car” step.
Requesting a New Drop-Off Location After Car Pickup
Budget understands that your plans might change after your rental period begins. If you decide you want to pick up at one location and drop off at another, you must contact a Budget reservation agent at 800-527-7000. One of our agents will let you know if any return restrictions apply.
Please be aware you must contact us before returning your rental to a different drop-off location. You’ll be charged a minimum $45 Unauthorized Return Fee if you don’t contact us beforehand. You may be charged a higher amount based on the distance between the pickup location and drop-off location specified on your reservation.
