Hey folks, I am flying into Boston at the end of the month and need advice for car rentals. Is there a cheaper alternative to renting at the airport? It seems there prices are sky high? Is there an off site rental agency that would have better deals? Any help would be apreciated as the cars seem as much as airline tickets!!! Thanks

The cheaper alternative involves flying into MHT or PVD instead of BOS. Rentals are half or less what they are at BOS, and flights are usually a lot cheaper as well. Worth making a 45-60 minute drive to save that type of cash in my opinion. Not to mention that BOS sucks and they other two are generally a lot more pleasant.

Generally speaking, If your rent off-airport (by several miles in most cases) your don't have to pay the airport fees, extra taxes for renting there to pay for ____ (fill in sports, convention .... whatever fee). Rental car facility fee. Check near by hotels, (again few miles away) that have car rental office, or
'local edition' of the car rental firms. Normally in strip malls,

Good Luck.
