Make your next trip to Texas even better with a Hertz car rental.

Once you get behind the wheel of your Hertz rental car, you'll be on your way to exploring this exciting city.

That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Houston. For bigger cities, like Houston, you may find navigating and parking easier in a smaller car. Commute times in Houston are close to 26 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then opt for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Houston vacation can choose a higher-end model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Hertz does require a deposit when you book your rental. Hertz will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Hertz. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Houston is a busy city, so there is going to be a lot to do. You may not want to be concerned about your miles if you are planning to see what else Texas has to offer. Those wanting to add even more excitement to their Houston getaway can head to one of the two theme parks in the region. Embrace your inner child, or take the fam to Fun Plex or Zuma Fun Center.
Hertz offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Houston, having access to your own set of wheels can come in handy. When you're ready to see more of Texas, you can go wherever you like, without trying to hail a taxi or sign up for a ride-share.
Before your next vacation, book your Hertz Houston rental car and zip off to take in all the must-do activities at your own pace. Reserve through CarRentals.com and cruise the open road in Houston, Texas.
