Do rental car quotes include tax?

Most of the time, yes! When shopping for rental cars, it is very important to compare apples to apples. Unlike some of our competitors, we provide our customers with an estimate of the total rental price for the entire rental period, also taking into account the time of day that you will be picking up and dropping off your car.

In most cases, rates shown include state and local taxes, in addition to airport fees. We call this an “estimated” rate because those taxes and fees are always subject to change.

Note: A handful of vendors do not include tax with their rates. These are primarily car rental companies outside the U.S. In these cases, we will clearly display next to the rate the phrase “tax not included.” If you do not see that phrase, you can be confident that the rate you are looking at does include an estimate of all taxes.
