Car Rental Rip Offs!

From Kaleel ftp etc

Few things are more vexing than getting your car rental bill which is almost always more than what you thought it would be.

In fact, travel giant Travelocity calculates that the average car renter pays some 24% more than they intended when they rent at a major US airport

The biggest offender seems to be the big state of Texas with the largest gap between daily rental rates and actual costs, while California seems the least likely state to surprise renters

The costs add up quickly…there are sales and use taxes, excise taxes, value added taxes, airport fees, surcharges and convention center tabs. And of course hidden mileage charges.

It can be a nightmare

Alert travelers use web sites that provides complete transparency relative to costs

But specifically ask the rental company for all pertinent charges… and do the math before you do the driving.
