Are car rental websites being upfront about costs?

We know that consumers object to hidden charges when buying from e-commerce sites, but car rental firms are still doing this. The difference here being that the hidden charges occur offline. 

Having had a nasty surprise after seeing the extra car hire charges from Avis on my credit card bill, I've been looking at several car hire sites to see how upfront they are being about extra costs. 

I found several areas where they could be more upfront, and improve their customer retention rates by ensuring that customers don't receive any nasty surprises when they see the bill.
