I think I was once told that the rental car company would then have to fill out paperwork as if they were importing the car to the US from Canada.

I've rented from budget before, no paperwork, nothing different than a regular rental.

I know the same applies to other companies
Make stuff happen.

One trick I found with this that works on the West Coast at least is to try returning the car to a station right across the border. Then immediately rent a new car from that same station for the rest of your trip. The rental car companies can't keep foreign cars in country indefinitely and have to repatriate them, so if you make that a 10 mile drive instead of a 300 mile drive they at least have the ability to pass some of those savings on, although not all do.

Way back I used to rent usa-usa one way dif drop off, and then drop off in Canada and no change to fee.

Can anyone confirm if this is still the case
