Pickup in AUS and drop off in SAT hard to find
Pros: This was the only rental co. that still had cars available in AUS, and there was no drop off fee for returning in SAT
Cons: The signs in AUS direct you to the third deck in the parking garage( a long walk) and then a short, dour woman informed me that I had to go back to the rental counter, complete the contract, and return for my car. Every other customer (3 that I saw) did the same thing. Very annoying! Trying to find the car return in SAT was another ordeal. They are WAY off airport and the signs are hard to follow.

Pros: It was a smooth experience from pick up to drop off of my one-way rental.

Nice car poor pickup
Pros: The car was nice. Needed a car wash but I was inside it so ok.
Cons: The pick up. It took about an hour to pick up the car. Only one employee working the booth most of the time. He spent at least 10 minutes with each customer that included chatting. I didn’t have the time.

Terrible customer service
Pros: John at the Austin Oak Hill location was very friendly and helpful.
Cons: Everyone I encountered at the Austin airport Hertz rental counter were rude and unhelpful. No luck with customer service over the phone either. I flew into Austin on business and needed a car to drive 2 hours away, only to be told I wouldnt be able to rent a car by multiple people who seemingly hate their jobs. I've never been treated so badly by any service company. That all changed when I arrived at the Austin Oak Hill branch where John was extremely friendly and helpful. I was able to rent a car and finally be on my way. I will never rent with Hertz again, and neither should you.

No car!
Cons: When I arrived at Hertz, they said they did not have any record of my reservation!? However my credit card was charged the full amount ! They said to call Kayak. I did. Kayak doesn't have customer service reps that work weekends!?!? will never use Kayak again.

Misleading and hidden costs.
Cons: When I arrived at the Austin airport Hertz counter and was told I needed to take a taxi to an off lot pickup and return that cost me $35 each way, or a $34 "drop off" charge I was livid. This is as close as you can get to fraudulent marketing. Never again will I book a car through KAYAK.

Pickup Issues because I booked through Kayak
Pros: Car was nice, clean, comfortable. Drop off was easy.
Cons: At pick up, we were told (unknown to us) that our car was booked at a satellite Hertz location. When searching on Kayak, I booked “Austin airport”, but somehow ended up with a car 12 miles away from the airport. Kayak booked it at a different location to look like they had a lower price than their competition. I called Kayak and they said it wasn’t their problem, so I worked with Hertz to resolve it but it cost me $125 more for the rental. Huge hassle. Won’t use Kayak again.

Pros: I loved the price

Cons: I booked to pick up in Austin and when I arrived at he airport they said it was a reservation for the downtown location. Why would the default Austin location not be the airport? Perhaps you should put a warning so it's more clear.

Pros: Got a car I ordered, a compact.
Cons: I flew into Austin and found out car was across town. Be careful to double check location. Still had to pay for first day rental even though i could not pick up ultil the next day, as they were closed when i landed. Had to take taxis which added significantly to my total bill. Had to pay extra fee to return to airport. Car was pretty well beat up but got the job done for the rest of the trip.

Lackluster service
Pros: The friendliness and repectful demeanour of all staff I had contact with as well as the pricing for the vehicle.
Cons: They didn't have the car I reserved. Instead of upgradi MG me they sold me an upgrade that did not meet my passenger's needs. Although they did givr me another car after I complained about the size, it ended up being a huge suv. After returning the car I was called about an owed balance. The agent calling had no informatuon as to why I owed but still tried to get my permission while unforming me I could call customer service if I had any questions about their blunder. After declining her request to charge me ahe had a manager call who did resolve the issue but has yet to send me an e receipt for the numerous chargea and refunds that she had explained to me during our call. It's been over 7 business days.

Excellent Rental And Service
Pros: I liked the personable service, and the beautiful new Camry we rented
Cons: That I wasn't informed about the additional 10$ per day for upgrading - fortunately the Manger was reasonable about my not having been told and took off the charage. If I'm paying more for the higher priced car, isn't that enough of a profit? That was the only thing that gave me pause -everything else was excellent

Did not have the car reserved and pricing changed
Pros: Not much Location was in the airport terminal so no bus was needed.
Cons: Did not have the Full Size SUV reserved Did not discount the MiniVan offered as a replacement. MiniVan was not clean. Found multiple empty water bottles under the seats. Rental process long. Did not have the same pricing for insurance once we settled on a replacement car.

Cons: We waited for 75 minutes to check the car out at the desk. Despite the fact that it was Memorial Day weekend, they only had one person staffed. It was wholly inadequate. People were literally getting out of line and just renting at other desks. I had prepaid, so I couldn’t.

21 Nov 2019
Pros: The Customer Service that accompanied my 3 complaints was fantastic. They made things right. Which I appreciate.
Cons: Checking tire pressure before renting cars. All my tires were almost double the psi level. They could have exploded. When I originally questioned the tire pressure alert light, I was told it was the cold. It wasn’t. One tire had been filled to 60. The others in the high 40’s and 50. Also, they charged me an early return fee when I didn’t return it early. I said I was going to dispute. When I disputed they credited. I wasn’t happy with the original service, but when I disputed they were excellent.

Great company for a one-way rental!
Pros: I picked up the car at 11pm from the Austin airport and had 48 hours to get it to Tampa. It was a very easy rental for pick-up and dropping it off was no more hassle (for it being one-way and a new car to their fleet location). Over-all very satisfied with the car, the customer-interfacing staff and the admin of it all.

Easy rental, great customer service
Pros: I like that Alamo does not hassle me about insurance and upgrades. I've been harassed and insulted by other car rental companies at Austin-Bergstrom about upgrades, so it's really nice that when I say "no thank you", the person at the Alamo counter says "no problem!", and that's the end of it and I'm on my way with the car. This fact alone keeps me going back to Alamo. The car itself was in great condition and I had no problems with it.

Horrible experience in picking up my car from Ente
Pros: They told me they didn't have a car for me when I showed up to pick it up at 2:15pm on Sunday. Told me they may not be able to get me a car by the time they closed (3pm on Sunday), because they ran out of cars as a result of people not returning them when they were supposed to.. They told me to call another location in the city to see if they had one. I asked them to do this for me, and they wouldn't. When I did, the other city location did not have cars to rent either. There were 10 other people experiencing the same problem. At 3pm, they told us all to get into one of their vans and that they would transport us 30 minutes away to another location that had cars. When I got there, they provided me with a Hyundai Veloster, which is a compact car even though my reservation had it confirmed with an intermediate car. Moreover, this car was very dangerous to drive as a result of its extremely limited visibility in the rear and the sides. Not only did I had to drive my car 30 minutes out of the way as a result of this inconvenience, but I also used my gas to do so. Never had an experience like this before and I have been renting cars for more than 35 years. Very unprofessional.

Closes at 2 on a Sunday!
Cons: 1) address provided does not I dictate it is a small space inside of a Walmart. We spend 10 minutes driving around the parking lot only to try to go inside Walmart on the off chance it was a kiosk. 2) I reserved my car for 12pm, but the flight was delayed by an hour and I didn’t arrive until 2:30pm...I didn’t think it would be a problem. The kiosk closes as 2:00pm, so we Ubered back to the airport for 40 minutes to rent a car from there. Travel can be unpredictable, they should warn you if your pick up time is within 3 hours of the kiosk closing! SO FRUSTRATING!!

Horrible roadside assistance! Avoid Payless
Pros: Car in good working order, comfortable and well maintained
Cons: Worst experience dealing with roadside assistance. I damaged the car hitting something in the road. 100% my fault. Called at 8pm to arrange a tow truck to swap out cars. 9:30am THE NEXT MORNING the facility finally got the car in and wanted to send me another car. Useless telephone support: Unable to get a hold of the branch. Was passed back and forth with nothing getting done. My $150 "PayLess" rental car cost me over $300 because of taxis I had to pay for because the car swap they promised me never happened. Avoid this company!!!!!

Pros: Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing
Cons: 1) The staff person at the counter repeatedly tried to bait-and-switch me from a car to an SUV at 50% greater cost. She would not give up, saying that they were short of the cars, but had plenty of the SUVs. In fact there were numerous identical cars (down to the color) in the lot. 2) The scratch and dent form was not filled out. The Payless attendant refused to fill it out, and told me to have the exit attendant fill it out. The exit attendant was bemused when I told him what the Payless attendant told me to do. He did so with some bewildered cheer. 3) Both the counter and the lot were located at the furthest and most inconvenient locations among the rental agencies. 4) I was promised a Ford Focus with the reservation, but was given a Chevy Impala. 5) The staff were generally colorless and indifferent -- except for the initial agent who was more simply antagonizing.

Pros: Quick rental
Cons: The outside off the car was cleaned but I didn't notice till I drove away that the inside of the car was dirty. It seems like the previous renter spilled coffee and it wasn't cleaned up at all. In addition, I dropped off the car in the morning and there was no room to enter the Thrifty drop off rental. There were about 15 returned cars parked all the way up to the entrance. The reason why is because there was no one working there at that time (5 to 6am), this delayed a few of us who were dropping off at that time. There is a poster that asks renters to write down mileage and gas and to leave the key and jacket in the dropbox WHICH was broken. Very inefficient and insecure system.

Giant f---ing scam
Pros: The car was decent, it ran. The line at the pick-up location was not long.
Cons: The agents at drop-off were too busy chatting with each other to check my car back in, it ended up getting checked in 6 hours later when I called them to make sure they checked it in. They added the fuel service option automatically, even though I rejected it when I picked up the car, the car was driven more than 75 miles, and I filled up the tank. This company is just a total scam. Three calls later and I've managed to get the charges fixed, back to the original amount. What a giant waste of time.

Cons: We were scheduled to pick up car at 7 pm. Arrived a few minutes early and waited in line until after 8 pm to pick up car.

Did not have a car for me. Left me stranded at airport.
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: I reserved a car online to drive to Lubbock after learning my father had passed away. I live and work downtown Austin, so I do not own a vehicle. I had a friend drop me off at 11 pm; I planned to drive all night to get to my mother as soon as possible. I waited for 30 minutes for a representative to come to the desk. Then they did not have a car for me after I reserved online. The woman was rude and snippy. All the other car rentals were booked as well. I was stranded at the airport with my suitcases. Worst experience with car rental (or lack thereof) ever.

Pleasant service; not-so pleasant vehicle.
Pros: Agent was polite and didn't do the standard fear-tactic with the insurance; it was just a simple explanation about coverage prices. Drop-off experience was just as friendly. The tech made sure I received my fuel refund; otherwise I would have just walked away not realizing I had pre-paid.
Cons: The car's air-conditioner only worked in the maximum setting. If I wanted to be cool it needed to be on full-blast (first world problem) Also there was a half-eaten Mott's Applesauce cup in the cup holder with a silver dinner spoon. My only guess is that one if the techs had lunch in my car or it wasn't cleaned from the previous renter.

Pros: the people were very very nice BOTH at the AUS rental counter and when i returned the car.
Cons: WHAT I HATE: I got the car with the gas at below the F (FULL) line. I took a photo of it. I am not familiar with this car so didnt know where the line SHOULD be. Returned the car with a full tank of gas the F line was well on the right side of the FUL line. i told the guy at the return and he said that was great. WHAT WAS GREAT ABOUT IT?? I SPENT MORE ON THE CAR THAN WAS ON MY AGREEMENT BY maybe $8 USD (which I questioned this at the counter, but went along with the difference) AND THEN SPENT MORE MONEY ON GAS??? *************This is not right and i took photos of the screen because i was annoyed. ALSO THERE WAS A PIECE OF SOMEONES NAIL IN THE DASHBOARD COMPARTMENT. also took a photo of that.... i would not have bothered if the gas issue would have been treated fairly.

Scammy
Cons: Company included a daily roadside assistance charge on the bill without giving a chance to decline, and the displayed rate on Kayak did not include a *mandatory* airport fee. Wouldn't rent with them again.
5.2 Okay

Cons: We returned the call full but were charged for the filling fee. This likely arose because there was no authorized attendant in duty to give us a receipt.

You Should Consider Something Other Than DOLLAR Re
Pros: The auto was a 2015 Toyota Corolla. Nice car, comfortable interior, fair mileage.
Cons: Dollar service representative totally misrepresented the tollway charges to us by telling us there was a $45 tollway charge if we didn't purchase the Dollar rental tollway service (~$32) from Dollar rental because you couldn't pay cash on tollways. Found out after we got on the tollways that we could pay by mail. Was shocked that a quoted $76 rental turned into a $175 rental when we received our invoice! More than double the quoted price with taxes, fees, unwarranted tollway charges, and additional driver costs! Will be going back to Hertz since they are at least up-front with charges...
4.8 Okay

Not As Advertised
Pros: Car was clean
Cons: Dollar tacked on a ton of fees. Your site said "includes fees and taxes". My $190 reservation turned into a $303 rental. I will not use Dollar again and quite possibly never use Kayak again

Pros: Service was pleasant. Liked the car.
Cons: I didn't like that I was charged over 70 dollars in hidden charges. I bought the 42 dollar toll pass but was charged for other fees. So my 174.00 rental turned into 307 dollars

Last Minute Deal with Great Satisfaction
Pros: I had a last minute transportation emergency and needed a rental. I scoured online and found a great deal on Kayak.com. I placed my reservation 10 hours before the reservation time. Their free cancellation and inexpensive cost bought me in. I received a Black Corolla, the latest model and was surprised to find a full tank of gas awaiting me. The ride was smooth and insured (Allianz). Dollar Rental Car took care of all my transportation needs and saved me a huge bill if I had taken a rideshare service.

Nice car but it left the lot low on washer fluid.
Pros: It was a nice car. Staff was friendly
Cons: The Washer fluid was low and so every 10 minutes a bell would chime signaling the fluid was low. Fluid levels should have been checked before the car was put out available to drive. It was extremely annoying to have that chime every 10 minutes. Had to walk a mile to get to the rental building and I am disabled. There should have been a golf cart or some way for people to get to the rental building besides walking. The signs where to return rental cars at the airport were horrible with the construction.

Top tips for renting a car in Austin

  • Whether travelers seek to explore the city of Austin or attractions like the Austin Zoo or the Colorado River, a hire car will get you to all destinations in no time. You don’t have to worry about timetables and public transport delays when you can enjoy your time in Austin with a car. Houston and San Antonio are about 165 and 80 miles away respectively, and for travelers staying longer in Austin, they are definitely worth a day trip.
  • Get your hire car conveniently at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and be in the city center within 15 minutes. The hire car center is located in Level 1 at the customer counters, but signs will guide you there from the terminal. There are also shuttles operating between the terminal and the car hire center.
  • Austin is a bike-friendly city, so make sure you do not cross bike lanes and risk injuring a cyclist. Also be aware that the speed in Austin is rather high compared to many other cities. As Austin has interstates crossing in lower and upper decks, it can be a challenge to navigate the system at first, so drive extra carefully and attentively to take the right exit.
  • Try to avoid rush hours in Austin to save time and energy. Especially the Interstate 35 is clogged up 6-9 AM and 4-7 PM, and waiting times can be up to an hour. Also note that, even though Austin is known for being rather warm, there can be ice in winter that will make the streets more dangerous and slippery.
  • Book your rental car in Austin at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

How can I find car rentals near me in Austin?

Take a look at our extensive car rental location map to find the best rental cars near you.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Austin?

Travelers who seek to get the ultimate Texas experience should opt for a pickup truck, as they are still the most beloved vehicle in Texas. However, they do require a lot of space, and if you only cruise through the city and have a hotel without a parking lot, a more compact car or smaller SUV is a more sensible choice.

What's the speed limit in Austin?

Unless posted otherwise, general speed limits for Austin are 15 mph in alleys and around schools and 30 mph in residential areas. 55 mph is allowed on unnumbered highways during nighttime and, during the day, drivers can speed up to 60 mph. On numbered highways, the maximum speed limit is 65 mph at night and 70 during the day.

How are gas prices in Austin?

The average petrol price is around $2.60 per gallon in Austin, depending on where travelers refill their tank. Petrolstations like Costco or Sam’s Club are known to be cheaper in comparison to many other petrol stations; try to avoid refilling your tank close to the airport, as petrol prices usually are higher there.

Where are the best places to park in Austin?

Parking is available on the streets of Austin or in garages, public parking lots or, of course, your hotel (if available). When parking on the street, note that it could be metered and be sure to check how long parking is permitted. Alternatively, choose a parking garage such as the ABM Parking, LAZ Parking, or 924 E Dean Keeton Street Parking, where your car can be parked for longer stretches of time -- but always read the signs to be sure.
