FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Austin Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Austin

Car Rental at Austin Airport

Planning a trip to Austin? Visitors to the capital of Texas often come for the thriving music scene. Live concerts are common here, with rock, blues, and country music sounding out from local bars and honky-tonks on a regular basis. Austin also has beautiful greenery. Explore the city's many parks with rental cars from Austin Airport. Go hiking or mountain biking along the trails or try freshwater swimming or kayaking in the lakes around the city. There's a lot to see and do here, and your cheap car rental from Austin Airport makes it all quick, easy, and convenient.

What can I see in Austin?

You're in the capital of Texas, so why not learn about the Lone Star State with a trip to the Bullock Texas State History Museum? Texas has a unique history that sets it apart from the other 49 states, and locals tend to be quite proud of that fact. Here, you can explore the history of the state, learning about the native civilizations that lived here before European settlers came, as well as Texan traditions like ranching, sports, music, and oil.

For more history, pick up your rental car at Austin Airport and drive to the LBJ Presidential Library at the University of Texas. This museum celebrates the life and achievements of Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th president. In the museum, you can see a replica of the interior of the Oval Office during Johnson's presidency, as well as plenty of interesting temporary and permanent exhibits.

Tip

On a budget when visiting Austin? Finding the cheapest car rental at Austin Airport isn't the only way to save cash. Take advantage of the tours of the Texas State Capitol building – they're free! Check in advance, as they may occasionally be rescheduled due to legislative activity, but these tours usually take place throughout the day. You'll learn a lot about the history of Texas, as well as seeing some gorgeous architecture on the inside of this building, which dates back to 1888.

Nature in Austin

Visitors flock to Austin for the great outdoors - and it's easy to see why. Lady Bird Lake, named for former First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson, is just one of the many bodies of water that you can explore here. There's a lengthy Hike-and-Bike Trail that will take you more than 10 miles to follow in its entirety. You can also try kayaking, canoeing, or paddleboarding. Motorboats are not allowed on this lake.

Like Lady Bird Lake, McKinney Falls State Park is easily reached with Austin Airport car rentals. When the weather is warm, locals love to take a dip in the Upper and Lower Falls. If you don't feel like getting wet, you can just admire the breathtaking views.

What can kids do in Austin?

Traveling with the family? Rent a car at Austin Airport and take your little ones to the Thinkery, the best children's museum in the city. Dedicated to science, this is a hands-on museum with interactive exhibits designed to help kids make their own discoveries.

Family fun can also be had at the massive Barton Springs Pool. This 3-acre outdoor swimming pool is found in Zilker Park, which is easily reached with car hire from Austin Airport. There are many options for open water swimming around Austin, but this municipal pool provides a safer spot for kids. 

Getting around Austin

In a state as big as Texas, you'll need a car to get around. Look for a cheap rental car at Austin Airport. Don't expect to find much public transportation. Although there are lots of walkways and paths in the city's many parks, you won't be able to get around town without a vehicle. It's a good thing it's so easy to find cheap car rentals in the United States.

Which road trips can I take from Austin?

Everything's bigger in Texas – and that includes distances! Houston is about 170 miles away, and Dallas just under 200. Beyond that, you're looking at a serious road trip: It would take you eight and a half hours of continuous driving to reach El Paso, for example. If you want to go out of state, you'll have a much easier time flying and then picking up cheap car rentals from Atlanta Airport ATL or cheap car rentals at Orlando Airport MCO.

When should I book my car?

For the best prices, use HAPPYCAR to check out your options for car rental at Austin Airport and compare deals. The best car rental at Austin Airport can be found when you book early, so don't delay.
