Default Arizona rent a car bend over

total bill was $290 of that $91 was taxes can you believe that
$199 for car $91 in taxes
Even worse is the fact they add local taxes then put a fed tax on top of sub total
Paying taxes on taxes nice place we live in
We could vote every incumbent out and keep doing it every election except they get life time pensions after one term
Still best place to live but man this suxs

A 45.7% tax rate? C'mon, that's not all that bad! What are you complaining about?

Maybe some of that was a utility tax for your optional XM radio.

I'm sure they are putting the money to good use, such as a air conditioned illegal immigrant day laborer pickup location.

Sometimes you can get a better rate by renting off airport and/or out of large city.

Houston really sticks it to the visitors too! Don't rent a car here, just request a 3 day test drive from the Chevy dealer

always tell the rental car company that you are going to have your car in the bodyshop for how ever many days you need the car. don't use the name of the large insurance companies as a lot of them have direct billing set up. tell the rental co. that you only get 20.00 pre day for a rental... ask whats the best rate they can give you. insurance companies don't bend over and take it, so the rental co.s have special rates for bodyshop repair customers. you can even call a shop and ask them to recomend a rental co. call and say so n so from _______ bodyshop told me to call and reserve a car for x date and that you will need it for x # of days... ratman

Someone has to pay for the new Cardinal's stadium. In case you didn't know, they only suck because they have been playing in a college stadium.
