Top tips for renting a car in Houston

  • Travelers flying into Houston will want to consider renting a car while they are in town, as in Houston -- and in Texas in general -- it is much easier to get around in a car than to rely on public transportation. For instance, if you would like to catch a Texans game at NRG Stadium, it would take 50 minutes to take public transport via METRORail from downtown to the stadium, as opposed to 20 minutes by car.
  • Picking up a hire car after your flight to Houston? At George Bush Intercontinental Airport, travelers can reach the hire Car Center via shuttle bus from any of the three terminals and from the Baggage Claim Area. For travelers flying into Hobby Airport, shuttle buses to the hire Car Center depart from Curb Zone 1 with signs out to guide the way.
  • Houston’s morning rush hour lasts from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and in the evening it starts as early as 4 p.m. and runs till 7 p.m. During rush hour, many of the highways can become severely congested and are worth avoiding. In particular, US-59 and IH-10 in the Galleria area can become especially congested.
  • Travelers should be aware that many of the highway exit ramps will exit onto feeder roads that run parallel to the highway before exiting onto regular streets. The feeder roads are also a convenient place to pull a U-turn if you find that you have exited the highway too early.
  • Book your rental car in Houston at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Houston are around 63% cheaper than other car types, on average

How can I find hire car agencies near me in Houston?

Take a look at our extensive car hire location map to find the best hire cars near you.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Houston?

Large vehicles are very common in Houston, so visitors to the city may want to consider renting an SUV or another large vehicle because otherwise they may find their view of the road obscured by the other large vehicles. The roads are constructed with large cars in mind, so small parking spots and narrow lanes are not a concern.

What's the speed limit in Houston?

Drivers in Houston will see a wide range of road speeds from 20 - 30 mph in residential areas to 30 - 55 mph on larger city roads. For highways in Houston, the speed limit is almost always 70 mph, though occasionally speed limits of 75 and 80 mph will be seen on the larger highways.

How are gas prices in Houston?

Fortunately for drivers, Houston’s average petrol price of around $2 is a bit below the average price seen in other large cities in the U.S. If you are looking for the best prices, it can be worth it to purchase your petrol in the outer areas of the city, rather than downtown.

Where are the best places to park in Houston?

Parking garages are your best bet for finding affordable parking in downtown Houston, especially when an event such as a Houston Rockets game is going on. Street parking is also available, but it can be difficult to find an empty spot during peak hours. However, if you are set on streetside parking and are willing to walk a block or two, then a free spot should be easy enough to find.
