Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in Texas?

As Texas is such a large state with many sprawling cities, booking a car rental is one of the easiest ways to travel throughout the area. If you choose to reserve a cheap car rental, it is also a convenient way to head to different destinations on a budget. Although major cities tend to have their own public transportation systems, including Austin, Houston, and San Antonio, driving a rental car still remains one of the most convenient ways to get where you need to go. Smaller cities will often not have extensive public transportation options, so having access to your own vehicle will also make it easier for you to visit towns such as these.


Texas car rental information

Texas is known for typically having warm and sunny weather. However, the state will sometimes experience wet weather, which generally occurs between the months of April and October. If you will be visiting the state during this period and are planning on booking a car rental, make sure to drive slightly slower than you normally would. You will also want to use both your headlights and windshield wipers when you are caught in a storm. There are a few main roads in the state that you will want to be on the lookout for, as they connect several different regions. For example, there is Interstate 35, which passes through both Austin and San Antonio. There is also Interstate 37, and it goes through Corpus Christi and San Antonio.

Making sure that you're up-to-date on local traffic laws is an easy way to be as safe as possibly when operating your car rental. In Texas, all children under the age of seven must be in a proper child’s seat whenever they are in a vehicle. If a passenger is under the age of 15 or is sitting in one of the front seats of the car, they are required to wear a seatbelt at all times. When merging onto a highway or freeway, be prepared for there to potentially be a ramp-metering signal, as these are quite common in the state. Always be cautious when drinking, as Texas has a strict blood alcohol content limit of 0.08%.

To rent a car in Texas, even cheap rental cars, you will be required to be at least 21 years old and to be in possession of a valid driver’s license that has an expiration date that falls after your scheduled rental period. Even if you do not have a license that has been issued from the United States government, you will typically still be allowed to rent a car by using either an international driver’s license or a license from your home country. If you plan on using either of these, make sure to have your original passport with you when you pick up your vehicle.
