How One-Way Rentals Work
A select number of GoCamp van owners offer one-way rentals. When searching for a GoCamp van for your one-way trip, you can toggle the “One-Way Rentals” drop down menu to “Yes” and you’ll be shown a selection of vans whose owners are open to considering one-way requests.
Please note that all one-ways require van owner approval, so even if it looks like you’ve booked a one-way, your trip is not confirmed until we have reached out to the van owner and confirmed their ability to accommodate the request. Requests must be made at least 30 days in advance and the reservation needs to be a minimum of five nights.
In addition to the cost of the rental itself, you will pay a recovery fee to cover expenses associated with retrieving the van and getting it back to its home base. Costs incurred by the van owner when recovering the van include things like airfare, fuel, Lyfts or Ubers, and lodging. Recovery costs start at $500 and vary depending on where you start and end your trip.
Current fee estimates for popular pick up and drop off locations:
Portland / San Francisco: $1,075
Portland / Los Angeles: $1,325
Portland / San Diego: $1,450
San Francisco / Los Angeles: $750
San Francisco / San Diego: $900
Seattle / Portland: $500
Seattle / San Francisco: $1,120
Seattle / Salt Lake City: $1,190
Seattle / Los Angeles: $1,475
Seattle / San Diego: $1,610
Denver / Salt Lake City: $910
We cannot accommodate cross-country one-way requests. It is also very difficult to accommodate requests for one-way trips that end where there is no major airport.
