Aqaba Arava Border Surcharge By Monte Carlo car rental

I received a quote for a one way rental from Amman to Aqaba. There is a 70 JOD charge for Aqaba Arava Border Surcharge. Is that standard? What is it for?

Thanks,

Jane

Its normal since they need to send somebody to pick up the car and return it to Amman.

Almost all rent a car companies are having such a Surcharge when you leave the car in other city.

If you are talking about one way, or one day, its might be better for you to look for a driver with his car.

If you are renting the car for few days, then it might be justified.

Enjoy your trip.

This "one way" fee is a normal thing, not just in Jordan. And it's indeed the cost to have the car returned back to the original location.

Thanks for the reply. I did not realize that is the one-way fee. I thought it was something related to the border.
