Rental Car Houston

The biggest city in Texas and fourth largest in the whole country, Houston is a sprawling metropolis that offers a wealth of museums and galleries, a haven for shopping and an emerging destination for serious foodies. HAPPYCAR is here to help you find the best car hire Houston has to offer so you can take full advantage of this bright city, and a car hire from Houston Airport is also available. We check the prices of international and local providers so that you don’t have to check each website to provide you with the best deals to make your money go further on a rental car that fits your specific car hire needs.

General Information

Houston runs on an unrelenting pace, fueled by vibrant energy and a long history of oil, and has embraced its momentum to enjoy a lower than average unemployment and an impressive clean energy drive. Despite all this, however, the city somehow maintains a laid-back pretense that manifests itself in leafy parks and languid barbecues. Houston is massive, covering a whopping 600 square miles of land, yet has a far smaller population than one would expect. Such a spread out low-density city means a car is essential for getting around the area efficiently and a Houston car hire is perfect to enjoy your trip with true peace of mind.

To Do

There are a diverse number of neighborhoods, restaurants and shops spread wide over Houston, along with the obvious hub you can find Downtown. The leafy museum district is the cultural center of the city and a significant force in the US, with 18 quality museums in this area alone. Of particular note are the Houston Museum of Natural Science and the Children’s Museum of Houston. Check out the Houston Zoo, recently named one of the ten best zoos in the nation and then the Kemah Boardwalk, just 20 minutes from downtown Houston with a car hire in Houston. Here you can find restaurants, shops and amusements for the whole family. Alternatively, head over to Hermann Park, a 445-acre green space that is a perfect day out for kids.


The city of Houston is filled with sights and sounds that transport you into the past, present and future. Buffalo Bayou, the 52-mile waterway that was once the site of Houston’s founding in 1836, is possible for you to discover with a walking tour. The historic market square was the centerpiece of downtown Houston since its founding and houses a number of beautiful 19th century architecture along with a recently renovated market square park. 45 minutes south of downtown with a Houston car rental can take you to the world-renowned Space Center Houston, the official visitor center and museum of NASA’s Johnson Space Center. This is from where man’s first foray onto the moon was directed and you can take tours to see various replicas of the shuttles and an insight into one of mankind’s greatest achievements.


Houston is crammed with some of the best eateries in the country and is largely considered to be the most restaurant-orientated city in the US. The fine dining scene has exploded in recent years, and you can find Tex-Mex, steakhouses, seafood, Mexican food and ethnic food to knock off your socks. West Houston is seen as a powerhouse for the latter, with everything from Bosnian to Middle Eastern to Ethiopian on offer. Houston also champions local, trendy food, with fresh produce and gourmet food trucks that are all the rage. All it takes is a short wander to find a mobile treasure, probably involving seafood, which you’ll never get to experience elsewhere.


It’s easy to get lost in the amount of things to do around Houston, with nature reserves, beaches, parks and wetlands to explore with a car hire in Houston. The stunning Armand Bayou Nature Center is a 2,500-acre preserve that is best discovered with a guided tour. Here you can hike, canoe, cruise or even walk a night tour to experience the old farm life in the area. Galveston is less than an hour away from Houston, and a great beach getaway from the swelling city life. For a slightly longer excursion, you can hug the Mexican border for less than a day to get to the enigmatic Phoenix, another sprawling Southern setting.
