Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Houston Dollar car rental at a great price?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But getting ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I bring with me when I get my car rental in Houston?
You will need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Houston?
Most suppliers in Houston require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Make sure to check Dollar's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Houston?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Houston. For bigger cities, like Houston, you may find exploring and parking easier in a smaller automobile. Commute times in Houston are around 26 minutes, so you may find a mid-size car or SUV more comfortable. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then opt for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Houston vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Houston. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Dollar require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Dollar does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Dollar car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Dollar.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Houston is a busy city, so there is going to be a lot to do. You may not want to worry about your miles if you are planning to see what else Texas has to offer. Those looking for more entertainment to their Houston getaway can head to one of the two theme parks in the area. Embrace your thrill-seeking side, or take the clan to Fun Plex or Zuma Fun Center.
Can I get a one-way rental from Dollar?
Dollar usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different Dollar. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
