Travelers can save money on car rentals with this advice

If you don't want to pay top dollar for car rentals while traveling, KDFW consumer reporter Steve Noviello -- an ally of Consumer Ally -- has some sound advice that could help you cut the price in half or more.

He surveyed car rental prices at several airports around the country and found an enormous price differential between renting cars there and at city locations. He even included the cab fare to getting from the airport to the off-site locations.

Steve notes some of the wide array of fees car renters pay at airports (we've noted those, too; see the most recent item). By the way, you might want to think twice -- maybe even three times -- before you sign up for the add-on insurance every car rental place is intent on selling you.

See if you can save a buck the next time you fly out of town. Check out Steve's story:
