Make One-Way Travel Affordable

Sometimes, you find the need to make a one-way trip somewhere. Maybe you’re going home from college, visiting a family member and road tripping back with them, or you scored on a one-way airline ticket. Another common reason for one-way travel is that your return date is open-ended. Exploring is on your radar, not scheduling, and you’re not sure when you’re going to come home, so you want to avoid locking yourself into a ticket.

Thing is, one-way travel is typically thought of as expensive or something you want to avoid because it’s too hard to set up. One-way rentals are often avoided because it’s not always understood that vehicles have to get back to the location from where they originated; it’s not like renting a moving truck, where vehicles can be returned to any location without a fee.

That’s where Fox comes in. We’re working on adding one-way rental deals on a regular basis so that you can take advantage of our cheap car rental rates and have that flexibility you need. Our first one-way deals that debuted this week are from Phoenix or Salt Lake City to Las Vegas. Depending on your time frame and the class of car you require, our rates are as low as $5 per day.

Read the specifics about our current deals here.

So what’s there to do on the way to Las Vegas from Phoenix or Salt Lake City? A lot more than you think!

Phoenix to Las Vegas is about 300 miles. You can do it all in one day, quite easily, but with rental rates so low, why not take your time and do some adventuring? You could take one main freeway and avoid any confusion, but what fun is that?

Take some side roads and see a few extra things, like the Hoover Dam. Hike in and around the red rocks and Sedona, Arizona. You won’t find a lot of places as peaceful as that part of the country. Monument Valley and Lake Powell offer outdoor activities and sites for miles. Slippery Rock Park can get crowded on hot days but it’s something you have to do to appreciate.

And while there are other national monuments along the way, don’t forget Zion National Park. If you’re really into adventuring, take a helicopter ride around the park for a view you’ll never forget.

On the approximately 420 miles from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas, you’ll also have a lot to experience, and not just a climate change and elevation differences.

Zion National Park’s Kolob Canyons is an option on this route, too. Beautiful natural scenery at its finest. The petroglyphs at Parowan Gap are worth the extra 25 miles. Want to see the Wasatch Mountains? Consider Nebo Loop, up near Payson, Utah, for views you have to see in person to believe.

Pioneer Park will give you a good reason to pull over and stretch your legs. You can tell people you went rock climbing!

There are a lot of other things to do on the road between these two cities, so pull up your web browser, book your rental car and start making your hotel arrangements. Both trips will allow you to get away from the crowds, see a part of the country you may have not paid much attention to before, and to come away with a new appreciation for this gorgeous section of the western United States.
