Think you got a good deal on Orbitz on your rental car in Chicago?
Think again. Get ready to be TAXED TO DEATH.
We rented a Ford Explorer for $298 for 1 week.
Then we saw the taxes
*11% “fee” – non specific but we guessed it may have to do with putting mileage signs every 1/10th of a mile on the roads in Indiana…
*License “recoup” – what on EARTH could that be and how long do you need to recover, truly? Poor you.
* “Tax” – because Chicago can without representation. Didn’t we throw tea in a harbour some years ago because this was UNFAIR?
*Facility charge – “We don’t like you usin’ our airport because you were really only here 2 days of 5.”
*City Surcharge – Well, you’re using 10 miles of our roads and buying stuff here but we don’t like you, you tourist scum.
Your $298.00 rental just cost you $451.22
