    You NEED a Car in Naples, Florida!

    When we made our plans to spend a month in Naples, Florida, we knew that we needed to rent a car for the month. We had stayed in Bonita Beach and in Bonita Springs [very near to Naples] in other winters; thus, we knew a car was a MUST.

    We checked prices for a month by going to several different rental companies. Because we received a 10% discount via RCI, we decided to use Avis Car Rental.

    We picked up the car[ a gray four-door Hyundai Sonata] at Ft. Myers, Florida Airport. We ended up paying $33.30 per day or $233.10 per week or $702.00 per Month. We had unlimited mileage and had to bring the car back with a full tank of gas.

    Although it is annoying for all rentals, we had to pay $0.47/day energy recovery fee; a 11.11% concession recovery fee; tax was 6.000%. Even more disturbing is the fee of $2.00 a day for Florida Sur Charge; $1.00 CFC; .03/a day for wast Battery fee; .60/a day Vehicle license fee recovery.

    Oh, my, that all adds up to $961.10 for 31 days. Do you realize that of that amount, $259.10 were for all those extra charges.

    Car is the only way to get to Naples. Naples has a small airport, but most travelers arrive via the much larger Southwest Florida International in Fort Myers. From here, take the I-75 south to Naples.

    In most parts of Naples, car is the only option to get around. Old Naples (downtown) is more intimate and walking is more facilitated. The Naples Trolley, a tourist bus in truth, could be classified as mass transit but its purpose is really only to shuttle tourists.
