What kind of rental car should I get for Houston?

Discover more of the landmarks of this busy metropolis with an economy or a compact car. Congested traffic, narrow passages, lane changes, and parking are all the easier with little runabouts like these. Of course, if you’d rather ride in slightly more style, why not choose a convertible? Ideal for taking advantage of the beautiful weather and scenery, you can travel to the sandy shores of the region with the top pulled down and the wind blowing through your hair.
