One way car hire?

Hi

We are looking at travelling one way from Windsor to Niagara Falls using a hire car as this sounds a more attractive option than Via Rail via Toronto.

The only thing is that all the car hire places we could find on the internet have outrageous one way fees.

Does anybody know of a car rental company in Windsor or Detroit that has reasonable fees to get to Niagara?

Cheers Dean

I can check locally for you, but doubt I will find anything other than what you have already found. One way car rentals in Ontario are ridiculous in price, unless you happen across one that needs a car returned to its starting point.

Can I get a bit more information about your plans?

How long will you have the car? Where are you going after NF?

It's unfortunate that it is so punitive to do a one way rental in Canada...

looks like about $400 for a 3 day rental if you pick up in Detroit and drop off in Buffalo.............that is probably a lot cheaper than doing it in Canada.
