I just dropped off a rental car, (used on a road trip), and noticed that the amount of taxes that are levied on rental cars have risen a good deal in recent years.
I am very curious what you have found on your own roadtrips and have started the poll above to share some information about this trend.
Rentals made from Las Vegas are subject to nearly 28% in taxes, surcharges and levies. Supposedly these taxes are distributed to the local airport commission, the county, the state and other taxing authorities.
It is my understanding that such levies now exceed 90% in locations like Kansas City and Detroit. What has been your experience?
In many locations, locals can request and receive a discount on the airport concession fee -- which in Las Vegas is 10% of the total rental.
