    Increasing the cost of car hire, from October 1, 2008, Orlando International Airport will be implementing a Customer Facility Charge. All clients collecting cars from On Airport rental desks will incur a charge locally at the time of collection.

    The cost of the charge will be $2.50 plus tax for each day of the car rental to a maximum of $12.50 plus tax.

    The purpose of that charge is what? Seems as though everything is increasing and this isn't exactly the best economic time to do so!

    Well it's something levied by the airport not the car hire place but I know some packages say "all airport charges included" so I think you'd have to call whoever you hire it with to be sure

    As I understand it, it's the total cap for the period.

    so if hired for 5 days or more it'll be $12.50

    Well every little bit matters and even $12.50 is a fair amount just because orlando airport fancies some more money

    I agree Tink, money is getting tight for a lot of people now and I know $12.50 plus tax isn't a lot of money, but it's going to annoy a lot of people, especially when they don't know anything about it until they get to the rental desk

    It's a crazy decision to make. We already pay more for the hire car by renting it from an onsite company. I understand the reason for that is because the Airports charge the rental companies more for being onsite :rolleyes008: Now they are charging the tourist as well
