KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in College Station

  • As a college town, College Station has a good amount of entertainment, and to get the most out of your visit, you’ll want to secure a rental vehicle. With a car rental in College Station, you’re putting the greater surrounding area within reach. Hop in your vehicle and take a day trip to Houston, which sits southeast of College Station. Alternatively, a vehicle grants you access to the beaches in Galveston and parks like the Sam Houston National Forest. When you visit these locations—city, beach, or forest—you’ll likely want to bring along gear, and having a rental car means you’ve got ample space and won’t have to lug it around with you while you’re exploring.
  • There are a number of places from which you can grab your College Station car rental. For example, along S. Texas Av. you’ll find a Hertz, and on State Highway 6 S you’ll find an Enterprise. You can also grab your vehicle from College Station Easterwood Field Airport (CLL) where there are several brand-name rental options, including Budget, Alamo, Avis, and National, to name a few. To get to the help desks, head to the lower level of the terminal toward the baggage claim—you’ll find desks directly in front of you as you walk toward the building’s exit.
  • College Station is a college town, so while driving here you’ll want to keep an eye out for students crossing the streets in areas where there are a number of bars, restaurants, and cafés. You may discover that some students choose to commute via bicycle so, when you pick up your vehicle, take a moment to identify any blind spots, then ensure you’re aware of them as you’re navigating the city.
  • A large majority of the working population travels to work via car. To avoid increased commute times, you’ll want to avoid the hours directly before and after the traditional workday. Typically, College Station rush hour traffic lasts from about 7am to about 8:30am, then again from 4:30pm until about 6:30pm.
  • Book your car hire in College Station at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate car hire in College Station are around 9% cheaper than other car types, on average

The car was very new and freshly cleaned. The agent was very helpful and efficient. We were considering changing our rental times (we reserved the car for only hours and I wanted to extend them to eight hours) but there was not an easy way to do it online without doing a new rental, which likely would have changed the rate, so we didn't bother.

Pros:

The staff was friendly when I arrived. However, I could not reached to them via phone when I needed to ask a question. They just do not respond to the phone.

Cons:

I was supposed to pay 32.59 as a total charge at the dropp off. However, the dropoff clerk charged me $42.60 despite the fact that the tank was full. When I talked to her, she said she has done it by mistake and the money will be returned back to me. I still could not get my money back.

Cons:

I have now been in this Hertz office three times. This is the slowest most unhelpful rental car office I've ever been in. It is busy, but mostly because it backs up with only two very slow people working there. Very frustrating dealing with the people in this office. Don't even try to call, you'll get put on indefinite hold or they won't answer at all.

Pros:

Good daily rate, clean cars, easy drop off.

Cons:

This place is very busy. Expect a few people in front of you, don't expect the phones to be answered, and don't expect to get the car you reserved. Specifically asked when I picked the car up if I could extend my rental if my car wasn't ready at the shop. They said yes, as long as it was within 12 hours. I called 24 hours beforehand and they wanted to charge me a fee for changing my reservation! I was very put off that this fee wasn't mentioned when I asked about this specific situation. Also, felt very pressured to buy their insurance, which I didn't appreciate. Said multiple times I was covered both by my regular insurance as well as my credit card, but they kept asking about it.

I had to stop and ask an employee where to park because there were not any Alamo signs in the parking lot. I was informed that Alamo was part of the Enterprise/National family of companies. My recommendation is to have signs of all three companies over the parking spots in the return lot at the College Station airport.
