Hertz One is a one-way car and van hire service in the UK that lets you rent a vehicle for just one pound per day.

Sound too good to be true? Don’t worry, there’s no catch. This deal really is every bit as good as it seems. In fact, you’re doing us a favour. You see, by opting for a one-way rental with Hertz One you’re helping us move our vehicles to where they’re needed most.

All you have to do is pick up a vehicle from one of the Hertz locations listed here and drop it off in another and complete within the time allocated. It really is that simple.

One-way rentals can open up a whole host of possibilities – and for the cost of one pound per day, they offer exceptional value. Hertz One is a great option if you’re taking a road trip with friends, planning on flying somewhere or want to visit friends and family. And if you’re moving to the other end of the country or need to transport large purchases, take advantage of our one-way van hire to take you there.

With so many advantages to one-way car and van rental, you can simply get to where you want to be and we’ll take care of the rest.

So take a look now to see where Hertz One could take you – all for just one pound per day.

Why?
Is it done by address or surname?
Edited by: "KingAwKings" 18th Feb
The cars are offered at £1 rental as they need them moving to the other location. Hence why the return journey isn't available for £1 regardless of address / surname etc.
Do they charge extra for a Hertz doughnut?

Sorry im kind of new to owning a car. What kind of car is worth 1 quid?

Ive heard of a cars that cost about 100 pound but pretty beaten up but 1 quid is a steal.

Pics of the cars would be great as this would be my firat purchased car im owning thanks
I work for europcar it’s the same with ours. Your moving a sale car to a sale hub which is usually always driving a vehicle south. . So saving us time on drivers.
Then you got to pay the excess charges and all that I'll pass

This isn't about owning a car, rather what you're paying your £1 for is a one-way rental lasting for 48 hours - so the times this will be useful will be limited, but there will certainly be some. For instance, I've done it once, cost incl fuel was slightly more than flight would've been but I was able to bring some stuff I was dropping at a friend's. Similarly if I was taking a family of 4 the saving vs flight cost would've been significant.

I've looked at availability a few times and there seems to normally be plenty availability from non-London locations to London ones (primarily airports) rather than the other way around.

When I used this, I googled "car hire excess insurance" beforehand, and bought a policy to cover me for £3.58 for 48 hours - a lot cheaper than the hire company would've been!
Very handy.....take all my crud to the dump, do a bit of deliveroo.... what's not to like?
They'll cover the loss with the scuffed alloy or chip which you didn't notice when you drove off..
This a real giod idea maybe I should open a rental business and have cars moved. Is cheaper than sending employees to certain city. This is cost efficient

I rent every week and use excess insurance. I spend fifteen minutes before I drive off taking pics of the car from every angle including the alloys.
No option to pick up from Chorley and drop off in Preston, which I thought would be a popular choice...

They can't come back after you have handed car back as the contract is finished unless you cheekily walked away without fuel filled up.

It's generally full to full. You pay for whatever you use.

Exactly what Martin Lewis advices to do. Lots of info and tips on his website about savings on car hire excess
Does anyone know if having 3 points on your licence will make this more expensive?

Perfect option if you're going away for a month and paying for airport parking is too expensive.
I have done this twice with Hertz but I was booking via driiveme.co.uk, paid £1 and nothing extra, Glasgow airport to Heathrow, you get 500 allowance and 24 hours. The website works across Europe and combine multiple car rental companies. Win win situation, I have moved my stuff and move car for them.
Doesn't include Leeds as pick up point
Basically a free transport for them
Good deal though.

I prefer the Australia/NZ approach...where fuel is often also included. I even got paid to move a Landcruiser from Broome to Perth

No it does not make a difference

Welcome to America 40 years ago


You could say it the other way round almost. USA used to have hefty one way fees up until not long ago, whereas it's never been much of a thing here, or not in my experience over the last 20 years.
Hertz UK are a nightmare for minor damage. Take photos when you pick the car up - or they'll try to ding you for damage they've already charged someone for but didn't get repaired.

Massive difference to hertz in the US who don't seem to give a damn!

Funny enough (well, not really) I have just received a letter from Hertz claiming I damaged a rental car of theirs (I didn't) 4 months ago. I no longer have the poaperwork with the existing damage noted, so I'm pretty screwed - and well hacked off!

But you have excess insurance, right?

(I also had a request from Hertz Namibia to pay for underside damage to one of their cars. Their error was to email me when I was already back in the UK - and failing to charge my card. Cancelled card, and no reply from me. Sorted )
Have used the same deal lots recently with Europcar. Will have to check Hertz as well next time.
I purchased an annual excess policy for about £40 so don't have to stress too much about checking the car over before driving off (I have claimed twice on these policies in the past and got paid out in full both times).
I usually end up getting them North to South, a couple of times dropping off at Heathrow I've been given premium vehicles that are normally over £200 a day to hire. I assume one way rentals that they don't have much call for up north.
Once you've dropped at Heathrow you can get the free shuttle bus to T4 I think then tube to anywhere in London for about £5.
Seems like as long as you're dropping off at a major airport you can pick up from pretty much anywhere in the country, at least that's my experience with Europcar.
