It is often cheaper to rent a car in the city or area you are visiting, rather than at the airport. You also save money on the car rental by not having to pay the extra airport tax, which can mean a substantial discount. Consider using other transportation (taxi, public transportation, etc.) to get into the city or ask an in-town agency directly how to get there from the airport.
Some car companies may be willing to pick you up, saving you both extra rental charges and gas for the trip out. Your hotel may offer local shuttle service that can get you from the airport and then out to the rental car agency.
Discounts are often richest in neighborhood (non-airport) locations on weekends since the main rentals usually come from in-week business travelers. You’ll multiply your savings in these cases!
