Generally we do not do one-way rentals, as we are an Ames-only business. Under certain circumstances, we will allow a car to be dropped off in a different city. We will still need to retrieve our vehicle once you drop it off at your destination, so the farther you go, the more costly it can become. The following are one-way prices to various surrounding cities:
Des Moines: $50
Cedar Rapids $100
Kansas City: $250
You will more than likely be able to find better pricing for a one-way rental at a major chain, as they will have a branch where they will be able to reuse the car at that location. We offer these options if you are unable to find a better alternative.
Des Moines Airport Rides
If you need transportation to/from the Des Moines Airport, look no further! As a transportation business, we feel this service could be beneficial to travelers, even if you aren't renting a car from us. The ride includes one Ames pickup to the DSM Airport, or a DSM Airport pickup with one Ames drop off. We do these 24/7, with the exception of major holidays. Please arrange your ride at least 1 day (24 hours) prior to the day/time of your flight. Even if you plan on paying with cash, a card number is still required up front.
$50 if paying with cash (card info still required) or $60 if paying with card
$5 extra per additional stops made
$20 extra if there is so much luggage/people that we have to use a minivan
$40 extra if there is so much luggage/people that we have to use a passenger van
$10 extra if the trip is made during inclement weather (blizzard, poor traction on road surfaces)
$10 extra if any part of the trip occurs between the hours of midnight and 8am
$10 extra if 24 hours notice is not given
