This is honestly the easiest best rental car experience I’ve ever had. It was quick to check in/pick up and even easier to drop off. What I really liked was the fact that I got to literally just go pick a car on my own, not be told which car I’m getting. It felt cool to walk down an Isle of cars and be able to get into whichever one I like!Reviewed 8 Jul 2024

New Jeep Compass had the new car smell. Clean and easy pickup and drop off. The trunk was pretty small but we were able to work it out. I was surprised to have a$300 deposit taken on top of the $500 rental fee. I’m waiting on the deposit return now. I just turned in the car yesterday.Reviewed 27 Dec 2023

Pros:Pickup & drop off was relatively painless. Neither rep demonstrated a welcoming attitude. All business. Pickup rep was eating while helping the customer ahead of me at pickup.Cons:A quick review of operating functions would have been helpful. I am a senior citizen not used to the new electronic wizardry. My wife & I spent a few minutes doing that at pickup and later again with headlight & windshield wiper settings. Picking up a vehicle and being thrust into traffic with rainy weather is not my idea of fun.Reviewed 19 May 2021

Pros:Nothing- see belowCons:This was the worst rental car experience of my life. I got to the airport and was told that my reservation was cancelled with no warning! Apparently Alamo had sold out all their cars. This was a major inconvenience for me, as I ultimately had to spend $270 getting to and from my destination, instead of the $120 I had paid. If I had also known this before arriving I could have also tried making different arrangements, but also found out that everyone else was sold out by the time I got there too. This was a massive inconvenience and I will never use Alamo again, and it made me seriously question my use of Kayak as wellReviewed 3 May 2021

Top tips for hiring a car from Alamo in Houston

  • Houston, Texas, covers 672 square miles. To put that into perspective, that makes Houston more than twice as large as New York City, in terms of size. Because the city is so large, you should try not to put yourself in a position where you don’t have access to a vehicle when you’re in town. It’s a good idea for anyone visiting the area to book Alamo car rentals in Houston. You’ll be able to travel around within Houston and even make your way to other parts of Texas when you have the keys to a rental car from Alamo available to you.
  • The good news for those visiting Houston is that the temperature doesn’t hit the 100-degree mark very often. The bad news is that it’s at least 90 degrees in Houston, about 100 days of the year, on average. With this in mind, you might want to shy away from renting a convertible and stick to renting a car where you’ll be able to keep cool. A small compact or intermediate car could do the trick as long as you aren’t traveling with other people and need extra space. If that's the case, a small SUV or a luxury vehicle might be a better option.
  • Since Houston is so large, you may think traffic would be minimal, due to people being so spread out. But Houstonians have to endure their fair share of congestion on the local roads, and you’ll have to deal with it, too, when you’re visiting the city. One good reason to consider renting a small car when you book Alamo car rentals in Houston, is that you can more easily maneuver through heavy traffic. It’s also a good idea to consider asking Alamo if you can rent a GPS system that will keep you on the right path, and prevent you from getting stuck in traffic jams unnecessarily.
  • Alamo has one of the best customer service departments in the rental car industry, so you shouldn’t be afraid to take advantage of it. If you have any questions about a current reservation, you should reach out to a customer service representative from Alamo. They can modify a reservation or help you cancel it if you don’t need it anymore, without forcing you to pay any cancellation fees in the process.
  • Compact car hire from Alamo in Houston are around 33% cheaper than other car types, on average.
