Tip of the Day 6/10/10

Did you know that rental cars are nearly twice as expensive at the airport than other locations?

We are trying to plan a little vacation, and I was shocked to find this out. I knew airport rentals were more expensive, but had no idea it was that bad. Since we’re travelling with a toddler, I’m willing to pay the “convenience” fee, but I still think it’s ridiculous. I know some rental car companies, such as Enterprise, will pick you up. The catch is that they won’t pick you up from the airport, you must be within a certain radius, and you have to take the driver back to the office. Luckily, my husband can get a corporate rate through work, and I have rewards that I can redeem for rental car vouchers. So much for a “cheap” vacation!

Do you have any tips for saving money on travel?
