Watch out for those sneaky one-way drop fees
Paying a drop fee for one-way trips is pretty unavoidable -- we're talking a few hundred bucks added to your bill. But most drop fees are negotiable, and some companies, like Fox Rent A Car, are known for their low fees. A general rule of thumb from experienced agents: Call the rental car company to see if it'll waive it. Occasionally, drop fees vary depending on the type of car you get. If that's the case, book an economy car -- they're the most common vehicles on the lot and will almost always have a lesser drop fee than, say, an SUV or sports car.
