Houston airport drives away with car rental fees

Houston airport drives away with car rental fees

Quote:
A new study shows that travelers at Houston Bush Intercontinental Airport experience more add-on car rental fees than any other airport in the country.
Quote:
The study, conducted by Travelocity, shows that Houston Bush Intercontinental adds on a 71.7 percent mark-up on a rate quoted by the rental car company.
71.7!

I'm a little confused. Are these fees added on by the state, or the rental car companies themselves?

In that case, I never knew that the government was a partner in the rental car business.
