Important: check availability of one-way rentals in advance

You have planned the route. You have put the top Australian highlights on the itinerary. You have chosen the location where you want to pick up the car. You probably want to drop off the car at a different location. As a rule, this means paying a one-way rental fee. Depending on the car hire company, this can cost a lot and is normally payable on the spot at the office. In some cases, one-way rentals are free.
To avoid any unpleasant surprises always check out the car hire conditions, the availability of one-way rentals and any associated costs. The latter can vary a lot, depending on region, route and season. As a rule, the one-way rental is an option you request after making a booking and is usually confirmed by email at the latest three days after the booking. You can contact the car rental company directly by email to inquire about the exact amount of any surcharge. If a one-way rental option is not available for the booked route, you will get a cancellation email at the latest three days later.
