FAQ Overview
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for your rental car is mainly 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 the main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. Please note that the main driver must present a valid credit card issued in their name. Furthermore, the main and additional drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year (for further information, please refer to the rental conditions). Moreover, both, the main and additional drivers are required to present a valid identity card/passport and must be of the minimum age specified in the rental conditions.
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 delay. As a general 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 must present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driver's license and their valid credit card.

A credit card issued to the main driver of the vehicle is required to block a security deposit for your rental in Houston. We recommend that you check the rental conditions to make sure your credit card will be accepted.

Houston Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Houston

Car Rental in Houston

You might think that Texas is just Stetsons and cowboy boots – but the Lone Star State has a wealth of hidden gems, many of which you'll find in Houston. This metropolis is famous for its Space Center, but also has a number of museums, galleries, and buildings of historical interest. With Houston car rental, you can get a closer look at the largest city in Texas. Car hire from Houston is also a great idea if you're planning a Texan road trip, to truly experience the largest state in the Continental USA.

What can I see in Houston?

You'll find plenty of options for cheap car rentals at the Houston airport HOU, ready to take you downtown. No visitor should miss the Space Center Houston. With exhibitions to thrill kids and intrigue adults, this museum takes you on a journey through NASA astronaut training and the history of the Space Program. Get there easily in your Houston car hire, and make sure to arrive early – you could easily spend hours exploring.

There are 19 different museums in the Houston Museum District. The buildings here run the gauntlet from the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft to the Asia Society Texas Center, so there truly is something for everyone. You probably won't have time to see them all but make a list of the ones you'd like to visit, and head down in your cheap car hire in Houston.

***

Tip

While in Houston, don't miss the chance to indulge in some local cuisine. Driving around town in your Houston car hire, you'll find plenty of options for Texas barbecue. The local chili should also be sampled, but before you go, educate yourself! Texas chili contains no beans or tomatoes and is more like a thick beef stew. Asking for beans won't go down well here - don't mess with Texas-style chili!

***

The Houston rodeos

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo offers a true taste of Texan culture. Held annually in March, this is the largest indoor livestock exhibition and rodeo in the world. Even if you have no interest in cattle, it's worth driving your rental car from Houston to the NRG Stadium to see the rodeo riders in action or sample the delights of the barbecue contest.

Where can I find some green spots in Houston?

You're in a huge, sprawling modern city – but if you want a touch of greenery, rent a car in Houston and drive to Buffalo Bayou. This slow-moving river is the ideal place to hike, run, or just relax. You can go fishing here, too, but the Texas Department of Health does not recommend eating your catch, instead advising a catch-and-release policy.

Great Texan road trips

Texas is enormous, making it ideal for road trips. Pick up your cheap car rental in Houston and head west if you'd like to get to San Antonio. It's just under 200 miles away, so it will take about three hours if you don't stop – but you might as well take your time and explore the state.

An alternative road trip will take you to Dallas, 240 miles northwest of Houston. You can find cheap car rentals at the Dallas airport DAL. Along the way, if you're traveling with kids, be sure to stop in Dinosaur Valley State Park, where dinosaur tracks will spark youngsters' imaginations.

What's the best way to get around Houston?

Rental cars in Houston allow you to explore the city and the rest of the Lone Star State. There is a rail system downtown, but it won't help you get to interesting sites on the outskirts of the city. With the best car hire in Houston, you'll be able to get around on your own schedule.

When should I book my car?

Heading to Houston during peak season? Then hop onto HAPPYCAR right away to ensure you'll find the cheapest car hire in Houston. We can help you find low cost car rentals in the United States and other countries, so wherever you're going on your trip, use HAPPYCAR to make it easy.
