Anyone have success renting a one-way car rental for the upcoming weeks? All major car rental companies are showing as sold out no matter which location I select- which I find strange. I tried post holiday dates just to see but no results still. I’m not trying to go cross country, just NE to SE.

Often one easy rentals are restricted to airport to airport, or at least forcing either pick up or drop off to be an airport location. Maybe that will help if you haven't tried it already

Try Sixt. Some of the locations for, let’s say Hertz, have closed with the pandemic because of a lack of demand. While they’re showing sold out they just may not be open. Definitely try the airport or just call.

Seems to me like the price of one way rentals is out of control in this pandemic. I've noticed it.

I had no issue doing this out of LGA

I just booked 2 one way rentals for mid December (Avis)

Does your firm have a personal use account? Often times those allow for cheaper one way rentals, or one way rentals when they’d otherwise be unavailable.

Try autoslash.com.

Thanks for all the tips everyone! Airport to airport didn’t work unfortunately, Sixt is available but crazy expensive so will see, Avis (the only one I didn’t try) had some availability but not for my dates so I may shift on my end. Will now try using firm code and autoslash.

I just got a hertz ad for 50% off on a 1 way rental from VA.
