Wotif One Way Car Rental FAQ

From quick-fix travel solutions to legendary road trips, a one-way car rental points you in one direction, so you can just keep on going. Flexible and convenient, it’s great if you’re a last-minute planner, time-limited traveller or open-road adventurer. Simply pick up the keys, drive to your destination and drop off your ride at the other end.  

How is one-way car hire different from a normal car rental?

Most car hire trips start and end in the same place, so you return the car to the rental office you collected it from. With one-way car rental, you pick up the car from one office and return it somewhere else. This can save time, taxi spend and all that unnecessary travelling.

We’ve locked in awesome deals on a huge number of cars to take from A to B. You find them by sticking in your pick-up location and drop-off point. Then just add your travel dates and times and click search to instantly see the latest one-way hire car deals right where you need them.

How much does it cost to hire a car for a one-way trip?

Can I choose the type of car I want for a one-way trip?

Oh yes! This is where the fun begins! Go practical fuel-efficient in a compact or economy car. Go for family and luggage space in a mid-size, full-size or premium car. Fit your camping gear in a ute when the outdoor adventures call. Or ride that coastal road in a cool, breezy convertible. So many choices!

Which car hire companies have cars for a one-way trip?

Where should I visit on a one-way trip?

Pick up your hire car in Sydney and take the legendary Pacific Coast Drive one way to Brisbane over a couple of weeks for stunning scenery, native wildlife and thrilling surf spots. For empty stretches of white sand with crystal-clear waters, stunning forests and rare wildflowers, hire a car in Perth and drive to Esperance for an untouched, unforgettable one-way road trip.
