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.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Austin for €32 or less
  • Book your car hire in Austin at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate car hires in Austin are around 39% cheaper than other car types, on average

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.

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.
