Car Rental FAQs

What are the requirements to rent a car in Texas?

Texas car rentals will require you to be at least 18 years old to rent a car. It is worth noting, however, that drivers under the age of 25 years old will most likely need to pay a young driver’s fee. You will also need a valid driver’s license. Your license must not be expired and must not have any restrictions. Some companies will require you to submit proof of residency for car rental in Texas, such as pay stubs or utility bills. You are also required to have current car insurance. If you are not a United States citizen and you are looking for rental cars in Texas, you will also need to show an International Driver’s Permit.

What are the rules for driving in Texas?

Car rental in Texas will require you to know the rules for driving in the state. The seat belt laws in Texas are a little more lenient than they are elsewhere in the United States. Children under the age of eight must be in a safety seat. Children between the ages of eight and 15 years old must wear a seatbelt at all times. Adults must wear a seatbelt when in the front seat. The maximum speed limit in Texas is 85mph and that is on freeways outside of city limits. The speed limit will change based on the type of road and where you are, so it is always a good idea to keep an eye out for signs indicating any speed limit changes. Otherwise, the rules of the road are pretty standard.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Texas?

The best type of vehicle for your car rental in Texas will depend on what part of the state you are visiting and what the purpose of your trip is. For example, if you are visiting a bigger city, you may want to rent a compact car to make it easier to park and to navigate tight and crowded spaces. You may even want an electric car rental as there will be charging stations located throughout the major cities. If you are not visiting a city, you may want an SUV or a pickup truck so it can handle dirt or gravel roads. If you are visiting with a large group, you may even want a passenger van rental so you can fit your entire party into one simple vehicle.
