Houston is a city of 2.3 million inhabitants in the USA, located in the state of Texas on the Gulf of Mexico. The Buffalo Bayou River flows through the metropolis and the Houston Ship Channel connects the port city with the Gulf Coast. Perfectly constructed roads invite you to explore the subtropical climate with an open rental car. The urban area covers about 1,700 km2. Destinations accessible by rental car are spread over the entire area. If you arrive in Houston by plane, you might land at the international airport George Bush (IATA CODE IAH). The airport is located 37 km north of the metropolis and is connected to the city by the Hardy Tollroad. In International Terminal E you will find your car rental company and take over the previously reserved rental car within a few minutes. Sightseeing offers in Houston are described below.
Driving a rental car is fun, especially on the wide roads with good street signs. You can find a parking sport pretty much everywhere. After extensive restoration, the downtown area is very well maintained and offers several highlights worth seeing: Alley Theatre, Wortham Center and Jones Hall invite you to visit. In the city center alone there are more than 20 museums on various themes and an interesting Market Square near Buffalo Park.
The parks and amusement parks in Houston are very diverse. The 80 hectare Kikkerillo on Chasewood Park Drive is considered particularly inviting. You will easily find a car rental parking space and walk along wide paths through a lush natural landscape to a picturesque lake. At Marshall Lake, restaurants invite you to linger or canoes can be rented for sporting activities.
As in many metropolises in the USA, Chinatown in Texas is also a highlight worth seeing. Discover exotic culture, tradition, Asian temples, markets and restaurants in an interesting district on both sides of Bellaire Boulevard.
With a roundtrip you rent particularly inexpensive with our one-way rate. Select an airport for arrival and departure, the car rental company and the vehicle for the corresponding travel date. Find out more about one-way rental on our portal.
In Houston, Texas you drive on the right as usual, but you may overtake on both sides. Speed limits vary slightly in the states. Ask the car rental company about Texas' speed limits. It is important to stop completely at stop signs. In addition, you should ignore all alcoholic offers when driving, because even carrying opened containers causes real trouble. Ultimately, you can't overtake sustained school buses.

We recommend this policy for every rental car, because it keeps the vehicle as cheap as it is rented from pick up to delivery. Small scratches or accidental damage are fully paid for by the insurance. However, if you opt for a contract with a deductible when renting, you are always involved in the costs in the event of an incident.
Please note that the car rental insurance you take out only protects you as a contractual partner. If another driver is to drive the car temporarily, he must be included in the rental contract by the car rental company at the airport. This cannot be done on our portal because the additional driver must legitimize himself with valid driving licence.
The car rental company at Houston Airport will block the amount on your credit card before you receive your rental car. Important: You need a full credit card, a prepaid card is not an acceptable alternative.
