- One-way car rental services have all travel charges like toll, taxes, etc. applicable when the vehicle returns back to its original location (garage) after dropping the customer to his destination. For example, if a customer avails one-way car rental service from Pune to Mumbai, he will have to pay all charges applicable while the vehicle returns back from Mumbai to Pune.
