Pick up a rental car in Toronto and drop off in Washington

Ophir asks:

Re: Pick up a rental car in Toronto and drop off in Washington --I would like to rent a car in Toronto at the airport, cross the border Canadian/US border and then drop-off the rental in the United States, probably in Washington DC. Do you know if this is possible?







My Response:

I checked 8 companies for availability to pick up a rental car in
Toronto and drop off in Washington, DC.

(Generally airport to airport is the most common for one way rentals, so I checked from YYZ (Pearson Airport) to drop off either at DCA (Reagan Airport) or IAD (Dulles Airport). Rates can depend on dates, times, vehicles sizes etc.. that's why I don't provide actual rates quotes... just availability .. which can vary by date, of course. I checked for a one day rental (Feb 15-16th) just to see what I could find (car rental company links open in new windows):

Alamo - yes -- the cheapest rental was a midsize SUV

Avis , Budget , Dollar , Enterprise , Thrifty - No availability for the one way drop off in Washington

Hertz - yes -- the cheapest was a compact car (although Alamo & National were much cheaper... by half!)

National - yes -- cheapest vehicle available was a midsize SUV (same price as Alamo)

Hope this helps!
