Additional $3.00 Fee Per Day for Rental Car Customers in Montgomery, Alabama?

Last week, the finance committee voted unanimously to propose imposing a Customer Facility Fee of $3.00 per day on rental car contracts at the airport in Montgomery, Alabama.

The governing board of Montgomery Regional Airport will consider the fee this coming Tuesday at its monthly meeting, but rental car companies are protesting it, saying that the proposed fee would put too much financial burden on their customers.

According to an article published in the Montgomery Advertiser by writer Cosby Woodruff, “rental car costs vary greatly at the airport, but fees are added to the bill for everyone who rents a car there. The airport charges a 12 percent concession fee on every rental, and city and state fees and taxes add another 8 percent. If the new fee is approved, a customer with a week’s rental on a car listed at $50.00 per day would pay $91.00 in total fees and taxes.”

  1. Wow….is there no end to this thievery? So now people have to take a taxi to and from the airport to get a fair price from a car rental agency, not at the airport? What would be the price difference after that? Nice customer service.
