A rental car is the most appropriate choice of transportation in a city built on the oil business. Houston is a rather spread-out city and the opportunity to rent a car at the airport should not be passed by. And, besides, a day trip by rental car to Galveston provides welcome relief on summer days. Whether you choose to pick up your rental car at the airport or from one of the many car rental companies in town, you will find some useful information below to help you get the right rental car for the right price.

Location, location, location
If you're arriving in Houston by plane, you may wish to pick up your rental car from one of the many car rental companies at the airport. Houston Intercontinental (IAH) is serviced by Advantage, Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National, and Thrifty from a single, central location at its Consolidated Rental Car Facility. To get there, follow the Rental Car signage at your arriving terminal and look for the white and maroon buses marked "Rental Car Shuttle." All of these car rental companies also have pick-up counters at Houston's Hobby airport. Expedia can also show you a map of the nearest car rental locations to your hotel and the rental cars they carry. (And keep in mind that off-airport car rentals are often cheaper than at the airport, even from the same car rental company.)


Picking the rental car that's right for you
Expedia offers a choice of standard rental cars, luxury autos, minivans, and SUVs to meet nearly every need. If you need any special equipment, like a child seat, let us know and we will forward your request on to the rental car company. And what's more, when you choose to "hire a car" (as the British say) from one of our car rental partners* in Houston, you'll be dealing with a rental car company that has made a special commitment to provide Expedia customers with great customer service, a wide choice of top quality cars, and competitive total pricing.

Expedia's Total Pricing
Unlike some other online travel sites that show you a cheap discount rate for your car rental when you're shopping and then heap on taxes and fees when it comes time to pay, Expedia shows you the final price up front. What you see is what you pay.
