HOUSTON ATTRACTIONS - HOUSTON TOURISM

Houston AttractionsHouston Car Rental - From 9am- 5pm on weekdays, Houston almost doubles in population from the people that commute from the outlying suburbs to go to work. The interstates, freeways and tollways that surround the city resemble a spaghetti bowl of congestion and road construction projects. Public transportation consists of buses, taxis and the Metro Rail downtown, but the best way to economically get from one Houston tourist Attractions to another is to rent a vehicle. Houston is spread out in many directions and unless you are staying very near to where you plan to recreate, a car is a must.

There are many Houston Car Rental Companies all over town, with many stationing themselves in or near the major airports and some even have rental desks in hotels. From economy cars, luxury sedans, vans, and even exotic cars, you will be able to find the perfect set of wheels to fit your exciting weekend of Houston attractions in the Bayou City. A suggestion is to stay away from the larger SUVs if you can. The traffic on the Inner Loop boulevards and rush hour on I-10 West (Katy Freeway) is stop and go and you will burn alot of gas that way. But, if you must have a large vehicle, you will be happy to know that Houston has some of the lowest gas prices in the country. If you are looking for a bargain, try to find filling stations that are near each other. There are always price wars going on and you could find some great deals on gas! There is little need to worry about parking when you go out to shop or for entertainment. Many Houston businesses offer valet parking, or if you choose to park yourself, you will be well at ease in the ample, well lit, free parking lots.

All of the Houston Car Rental companies offer packages and competitive rates. Some even will pick you up at the airport for free. You must have at least liability insurance, a valid driver's license and a credit or debit card to get a vehicle. Here is a list of some fantastic companies that will give you the best vehicles at the best rates.
