Good afternoon everyone, I hope your long Labor Day Weekend is going well. Last year, my brother and I drove an RV from Los Angeles to Denver, stopping at several national and state parks along the way. We used a service called TransferCar (based in Australia / New Zealand) that coordinates 1 way car and RV rentals. It is a relocation service, whereby the car and RV rental companies would rather have individuals (like you and me), drive the cars and RVs for $1-$5 per day, instead of paying hundreds of dollars to transport the cars and RVs back to their primary location. I documented the entire trip process here, if you want to learn more:
- TransferCar Part 1: Introduction to Free One Way Car and RV Rentals
- TransferCar Part 2: Book your Free One Way Car or RV Rental Online
- TransferCar Part 3: RV Pickup, Dropoff, Exterior, and Interior Photos
- TransferCar Part 4: Epic RV Journey through California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and Colorado
Anyway, it’s been a while since I was on TransferCar’s website, but they have a ton of car and RV rentals available. Most rentals are $1-$5 per day and some even include gas credit and a travel allowance.
The searching process works best when you put your home location as either the departure or arrival city and search for rentals that way. If you are more flexible, you can look at all rentals and find a partial crosscountry trip. The one drawback of TransferCar is that most rentals are for the near future, departing in the next 30 days.
If you have any questions about TransferCar, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
