Drop off a rental car in a different country

I'm looking to drive from Oslo, Norway to London, England in a rental car but I cannot find a company that will allow one way international trips. I am willing to pay a drop off fee. Does anyone know car rental companies that would accommodate this?

Thanks!

Hi there:

This is the Support forum which is for answering general questions about the TripAdvisor website.

Or post in Oslo Forum as that is where you want to rent the car from.

It will be extremely expensive since the rental company has to get the car back to Norway - there is very little demand for left hand drive rental cars in the UK

If flying is out of the question, I suggest train travel and a rental car at destination.

Cross border rental to the UK from Norway I suspect would be impossible. In addition many rental car companies have restrictions regarding ferries.
