Awarded as the best airport in North America, William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) is a renowned international airport located approximately 7 miles from downtown Houston. It's second largest passenger airport, serving both national and international flights, and offering numerous amenities, such as free WiFi, different dining options, and even a full-service post office.

From Airport to Car: Car Hire Stations

The airport houses various reliable car rental companies, located at the Consolidated Rental Car Facility. Among them are internationally recognised brands like Hertz, Enterprise, and Avis. So, whether you're looking for a compact car, a large family car, or a sports utility vehicle, you'll find plenty of options to suit your preferences and budget.

Ready to Roll: Driving in Houston

Getting accustomed to driving rules on the other side of the road might be challenging, but don't worry, it gets easier with time and a little patience. While driving, remember to stay on the right side of the road, and when turning, take note that it is usually legal to turn right on a red light provided there is no oncoming traffic. Additionally, unlike what is customary in Britain, the highway speed limit can reach up to 70-75 mph (approximately 113-121 kph), and it's crucial to adhere strictly to these limits.

Fueling Up: Petrol Stations

When heading out for your journey, having a full tank is crucial. You'll find various petrol stations near the airport including Shell, Valero, and Chevron. Interestingly, petrol stations in the US are self-service, which can be a unique experience if you're visiting from Britain where service is often available.

Money Matter: Currency

The currency in the United States is the US Dollar ($). Most places accept credit and debit cards, but it's always good to have some cash handy, especially for tipping as it is customary and expected in most service industries.

Climate: What to Expect

Typically, Houston experiences a humid subtropical climate. It's generally warm all year round, with a hot and rain-prone summer (June - August), and mild winter (December - February). Therefore, if you're visiting from Britain, you may want to swap your umbrella for a pair of sunglasses and sunblock lotion.

Surrounding Attractions

Beyond the airport lies an exciting city filled with lively attractions. It's merely a 30-minute drive to central Houston, where you can visit the Space Centre Houston, Museum District, Houston Zoo, or dine in the buzzing restaurant scene. For outdoor explorers, Galveston, located around an hour's drive, offers beautiful beaches and splendid seaside walks.

We hope this guide ensures your journey from William P. Hobby Airport and onwards is both smooth and enjoyable. Happy travels!
