Boston Rental Taxes Highest Among Major Airports

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Among the nation's top-50 car rental airport markets, Boston charges the highest level of car rental taxes and surcharges. Today, taxes and surcharges typically make up about 20% of a customer's total rental charge, according to research compiled by Abrams Travel Data. In Boston, however, taxes and surcharges account for 28.7%.

Boston is followed by Dallas-Ft. Worth (27%), Phoenix (26.7%), Houston-Intercontinental (26%) and San Francisco (24.4%).

The research on airport taxes was released this month in Abrams Travel Data Services' "Car Rental Market Scan."
