Starting in January, the Metropolitan Airports Commission will increase Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport’s rental auto facility charge from $3.25 to $5.90, according to a report by KSTP 5 News.
The rate increase will be for at least the next four years to help pay for new rental car facilities, according to the report. To compare, the rental auto facility charge is $5 in Atlanta, $6 in Boston and $8 in Chicago.
