I was listening to a radio programme yesterday as I drove home from doing some chores.
They were chatting about the cost of car hire at an airport vs. at a city depot. The programme had compared the same car, for the same dates and from the same hire company. They did this for, if I remember correctly, 4 different car hire companies and at a couple of different airports.
The price difference was staggering. On average it costs at least double to rent the car at the airport. In the most extreme case the fee from the city depot was £300 for a 1 week hire but the same car, from the same company if hired at the airport was a mind-blowing £1,600.
During the programme a listener got in touch from Spain saying she had discovered that she could save €400 by going to the Malaga airport, using their free Wi-Fi and booking a car as opposed to walking a few steps the desk and booking it in person.
Hire companies tried to justify the difference by talking about higher overheads etc
