Alamo one-way fee

Just made an one-way booking on Alamo.com using Costco discount codes. Per it's T&Cs:
Drop Charge - This is a fee that is assessed for renting a vehicle in one rental location and returning the vehicle to another rental location (see one-way rentals). This is also known as an 'inter-city' fee. The drop charge fee varies by rental location and time of year. The drop charge fee will be disclosed when you book via the web site and is payable at time of pick up.
Since the only fees disclosed during my booking is the taxes, does that mean that this particular location does not assess any one-way fee? Thanks.

Not location. Rate plan. Ex, Some corporate contracts have a flat rate with a one-way mileage charge, and most European tour rates have a separate taxable drop fee. If you don't have a drop fee on your confirmation, one will not sneak in at pickup.

Thank you both for the replies, the only item other than rental fee listed in the confirmation email is tax.
