The rental car rates in Florida are generally pretty cheap, as the intense competition for the tourist dollar tends to keep prices low. Tampa Airport rental cars are usually among the lowest in the state, in part because there is no extra airport fee on rental cars at TPA airport. Tampa has always been one of the few major airports without an added airport fee, but that could change in the near future, according to a story in the St. Petersburg Times.
Airport officials are considering adding a $2.50 fee to help pay for an expansion to the rental car facilities at the airport, which have become necessary since it has pretty much reached capacity. The expansion would be part of a $20 million project to upgrade the entire airport, which officials hope to have completed by the time that the Republican National Convention rolls into town next summer.
