I was a bit upset that my vehicle was not ready at the pick-up time of 12pm as scheduled. I was advised I need to wait to have the vehicle cleaned and touched up before I could get the car. Manager Quinn - recognized that I was waiting for a bit and asked if there was anything going on. I'm like when I walked in there was no other customers ahead of me. 3 others walked in after me. One lady had to add or extend her coverage on her current rental. Another gentleman had a return/drop off. the third may have came in earlier and had to come back to pick-up after. All 3 departed before I did. @ 12:40pm I left w/ my rental. Quinn - advised me that I did not have to re-fuel upon my return. had it not been for the management and inquiry of my status, this would have been a 1 or 2 star rating. I initially came here for the price, despite passing another HERTZ miles closer to my home.

RESERVED CAR WASN’T AVAILABLE UPON PICKUP: I reserved the car online, when I showed up they said they didn’t have that car available. They couldn’t tell me when it would be available. I was given 3 choices: - Wait indefinitely for a potential car of my choice to be returned by another renter - Come back another day - Take whatever car they had on the lot I picked the last option because I needed the car to go to work. BEWARE OF CRAZY TOLL TAG CHARGES: My toll bill was $200 after 19 days of having the car. The car I chose had a toll tag service built in that I wasn’t aware of. Maybe I should have asked, or maybe they should have told me, but the service in the car charges $5/day just for using the tollway (not including the actual toll amounts everytime you pass a booth). I logged onto my own tollway account, in advance, to setup up for automatic deductions out of my existing account. Unbeknownst to me, the Toll service that’s built into the car would charge me money no matter if I want to use their service or not. So now I have a $200 bill that I can’t do anything about because it’s built into their hidden policy. EMPLOYEE MIGHT HAVE STOLEN MY IDENTITY: When I returned the car I accidentally left my wallet in the passenger seat. An employee from Hertz called to inform me that he had my wallet in his possession. I came to pick it up after work that day and thought that it was so nice of them to have kept my wallet safe. 2 weeks later I had fraudulent charges on my credit card, so I closed that card and got a new one. Then one week after that my ATM card magically had fraudulent charges on it as well. My ATM card never gets used. Not online, not at gas stations, and not even at ATMs. The only place it’s ever been was inside my wallet. So how did the card numbers fall into someone’s hands if I never use the card... ever?! It seemed like every card inside that wallet that was returned to me had been compromised, so I replaced all the cards with new ones out of precaution. Hertz is truly poorly managed, unreliable and untrustworthy. I would never use Hertz again.

  • Educate yourself on any cost for fuel policy, additional drivers, and mileage limits. That way you will know the true cost before you rent
  • Don't get more vehicle than you'll need. Generally, the smaller the class the lower the rate

Even a little rental car know-how can go a long way to getting you the most savings.

CarRentals.com has around 138 car rental providers that you can decide from. We have budget-friendly names like Budget and Thrifty and global ones like Enterprise and Hertz. Look through the online reviews to get an idea of which one is best for you.

What types and makes of rental cars are on offer in Houston?

That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Houston. If you're having a little trouble picking the right car, be sure to read over our table below. We've compared the most popular types of cars for you:

How old do you have to be to rent a car in Houston?

Normally, to rent a car in Houston you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to read the supplier's terms to find any additional charges will be before you book your rental.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Houston?

Almost all countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through rental car supplier for your trip, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some coverage; however, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check rental car supplier's policy before you decide.

Are there different fuel policies?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Below is a list of the most common ones.

What fuel policy should I get?

Most suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. At CarRentals.com, we encourage bringing it back with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

If you plan to check out all that Houston and maybe even the rest of Texas offers, you are going to want unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional charges. Review the fine print to make sure they are truly "unlimited."

What are some must-see sights in Houston?

There is tons to see and do in this city. Houston has around 12 attractions that it is known for. Some of the most popular are:

  • The Menil Collection
  • Children's Museum of Houston
  • Johnson Space Center and Space Center Houston
  • The Galleria

Fortunately, you can drive to the one you want or see them all.

Before you leave the lot

Be sure you check out a few things before you leave the lot on your Houston adventure. You should:

  • Inspect your vehicle and make certain there is no dents or scrapes. If you notice any, mark it down on the paperwork
  • Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Get comfortable working the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new city
