Important information about McAllen car rentals

You can select your McAllen car rental at the McAllen Miller International Airport, where you’ll be just a few minutes’ drive from downtown McAllen. Or, take a taxi to your hotel and choose a vehicle from almost 10 more car rental locations in McAllen. Parking is plentiful — on-street, lot and garage — and rates are inexpensive. Once downtown, you can easily walk to attractions, such as musical performances at Yerberia Cultura, art and museum exhibits at McAllen Heritage Center, or the Night on Broadway haunted house. However, a cheap car rental in McAllen will keep your visit moving, giving you access to attractions at the city’s edge, such as the National Butterfly Center, the Museum of South Texas History and Edinburgh Scenic Wetlands.

Is it worthwhile to rent a car while visiting McAllen?

Your car rental in McAllen will help you see all that the city offers, especially locations outside of downtown, like The Bryan House historic site and the World Birding Center. A lot of areas in the city are quite walkable. While traffic in this growing city does intensify during typical a.m. and p.m. commuting hours, most congestion occurs around the I-690 and I-2 interchanges and won’t affect most tourism activities. While visiting, save time for a day trip. Load the gang into your passenger van rental and head to one of several nearby beach areas, including South Padre Island, Bocha Chica State Park, Riviera Beach Pier and Kaufer Hubert Memorial Park. Or take the scenic drive in your luxury car rental to the Falcon International Reservoir in Zapata, where you can enjoy authentic Mexican cuisine at Steak House, and some "me time" at Rejuvenate Spa. Enjoy inexpensive or free parking close to or at these McAllen or day trip venues.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in McAllen?

While driving your rental car in McAllen, and throughout Texas, note that a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% is considered legal intoxication and even a first offense may be met with a hefty fine, jail time and loss of your license. You can also expect a ticket for exiting your car rental in McAllen without engaging the parking brake or leaving your vehicle with the keys in the ignition. Seatbelts are mandatory for all passengers, and children 8 years or younger must be seated in a child safety or booster seat. As traffic regulations are subject to change, it is best to check in with McAllen’s department of motor vehicles or the Texas Department of Public Safety prior to your trip.

Will I need a special driver’s license or permit to drive a rental car in McAllen if I’m visiting from another country?

You’ll be able to drive your car rental in McAllen if you have a valid license from any U.S. state or foreign country. An international driver’s permit can be helpful if your license is in a language other than English, but it is not required. In addition to a valid driver’s license and credit card, foreign visitors will often be asked to provide a passport to rent a car. The legal age to rent in Texas is 18 and extra fees for drivers under 25 are common.
