Car rental Houston, TX

New frontiers
in Houston

As one of the most diverse cities in the country, Houston has a lot to offer on many fronts, including fantastic food from every corner of the world, enthralling museums, and beautiful outdoor spaces where you can do everything — enjoy a movie or settle into an al fresco reading room.

Make your way through one of the most exciting cities in Texas in your Houston airport car rental, and also bask in the scenery of the nearby Gulf of Mexico and Texas Hill Country.

Houston favorites

Houston is chock full of well designed green spaces and truly mind-blowing eats, so take your Houston car rental out to sample these gems.

Buffalo Bayou Park

This 160-acre park is an impressive respite from the bustling city, and is a beautiful place to rent boats or bikes. You can also tour and see shows in the strange, awesome underground cistern.

Chow down on crawfish

Crawfish is no joke in this Gulf-side town. You can’t go wrong with the classic table-top spread with corn cobs, but don’t miss the spicy Viet-Cajun style unique to Houston.

Space Center Houston

At the Space Center, you can not only see a large collection of moon rocks and spaceship exhibits, you can also tour NASA facilities where astronauts train.

Papa is incredible individual and a superb business owner, one that puts his customers above all even if it means to losing some dollars on the way. I’m a very frequent traveler I travel about once a month on business and have met a lot different traveling professional. By far Papa was one of my favorite, he really cares all along the trip and even when I ended it and got home he checked in :) to see I arrived home ok. I came to the airport to Rent-A-Car from Papa I ended up getting a much NICER car complements of Mr. Papa :) The pick up drop off and vehicle were immaculate nothing short than perfect are. Throughout always checking in making sure I found everything in the car fits my needs a true professional and one that has a business owner I strive to be like. I will be back without a doubt if I am ever in the Houston area there’s only one place I’m going to rent a car and I was by Mr. Papa. HE GAINED ME AS A COSTEMER / FRIEND FOR LIFE :).. Thanks for everything PAPA

Honestly at first I was skeptical about renting a car from any service other than the big car rental companies. Mr. Papa erased that skepticism. It is a great experience working with him, and I will continue to use his services from here on out. Highly recommend his vehicles. There are many choices. This VW golf was absolutely perfect

Skip the rental car counter

Hit the road

Book your Houston car rental on Turo and get out of town to hit the hills, the beach, and other awesome Texas cities.

Galveston

Only an hour out of the city in your Houston car rental, Galveston is the hot beach spot where locals revel in long seaside days with great BBQ, and even horseback riding.

Austin

Known for its rocking live music scene, it’s worth the three-hour drive in your Houston car rental to get your dose of Austin weird, and some killer swimming holes.

Brazos Bend State Park

In less than an hour in your Houston car rental, you can be hiking or biking in nature at this state park. It’s also home to an observatory where you can stargaze on clear nights.

Lorenzo made me never want to rent at a Enterprise Car rental or any other rental place again. He is very pleasant and I needed to extend last minute and he accepted my extension within 2 minutes. His pickup location is in the heart of the city, which is a HUGE plus. This was my first Turo rental so he set the standards high. When I let him know I was having problems with app before check in he helped me get to the pick up location. He was great. In week I may be renting from him again, unless of course you have read this review and have booked by then😁... Thanks Lorenzo!!!!! You were great!

The one and only for Houston luxury rentals. I’ll be helping him in anyway I can to get the word out about his fleet. He had his E 300 ready same day and communicated the entire Time. His area is safe and clean and I can leave my company cars in his area. He’s my only rental specialist any time I’m in Houston. If you need a business class or sports car same day, clean gassed and ready, get Salman.

My name is Vancleve Bonner, I had to come to Houston Texas to pick up my son Oliver Bonner and needed a affordable car. Dioni Verango reaches out to me and said consider certified Luxury Autos. We have luxury autos for a good price. I then went to the Instagram page and seen a selection of cars. Dioni recommended the 640I BMW. I said ok and decided to try it. Bruce Bray then reaches out to me as a rep, answered every question I had and brought the car to me on time, clean with great energy, and customer service. I recommend Certified Luxury Autos as the number one rental company in Houston Texas and Houston surrounding counties.

So my trip to New Orleans was great, other than the fact the tire blew out on the way back. Luckily George had the right coverage for his vehicle which made it easier to get towed free of charge. I was later than time scheduled after fixing everything at the tire shop but George was gracious enough to not worry about that and assured me things would get handled after drop off. I'd rent again but possibly another vehicle, the Smart car is a good car, just for smaller people. Only thing I'd note is to make sure to have a spare tire with ANY rental. Thanks George!

If you’re need to rent a car, but have been disappointed in the quality and cost of professional rental companies, Ziya is your man. The car was mechanically and aesthetically spotless. Ziya made it super easy to pick up, drop off, and it always felt like I was borrowing a friend’s car cause I knew I could reach Ziya for anything I needed. Checking against available rates for comparable cars provided by the rental companies, I ended up saving over 50%; paying for 21 days what I would have paid for 9. I am a happy customer.

Big thanks to Bryan. Turo allowed me to be able to afford to have a proper Texas road trip in an American muscle car. The rental companies have a poor range and inferior booking tools as well as being more expensive. It was a breeze with Bryan and Turo and I am looking forward to having the chance again. New Zealand still needs more cars to catch up with the U S.

Highly recommend checking our Daniel’s mini fleet before making your Turo reservation in Houston. Very few people do Turo full time and as a service and Daniel is one of them. Very prompt with communication and delivery as well as curb side pick up even for a last minute late night rental. Don’t think twice if you’re considering one of his cars.

My experience was amazing. Out of all my times using Turo, this was the best. The host was very nice, professional, punctual, and informative. He made it very easy for me to pick up the car. The car was extremely clean and well taken care of. I loved the car so much, I would get one for myself. He also made drop off even more convenient, going as far as meeting me curbside at my airport terminal so that I would make my flight on time. I really appreciated everything he did. If you ever come to Houston, do business with TGTM Car Rentals because you won’t be disappointed!!

Best Houston driving roads

Farm-to-Market 149

Head north to Montgomery to catch FM 149, which shoots your Houston car rental through the Sam Houston Forest for decent twisties until you’re dropped into the swooping curves of FM 3090.

Highway 59 to Victoria

For views of the truly Texan wide-open range, head west in your Houston car rental and take in the scenic rolling prairies that lead into the historic downtown Victoria.

Highway 288

Head south in your Houston car rental to take this scenic road all the way to the coast, or stop off at Brazos Bend State Park for a does of wildlife and glassy lakes.
