KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Garland

  • As you plan your trip to Garland, you should consider getting a car rental to help you move around the city easier. With car rentals in Garland, you can visit different areas in the city and check out the popular attractions here on your terms. No need to deal with annoying bus schedules or having to order an Uber any time you need to go somewhere. You can also visit neighboring cities such as Dallas and Fort Worth and check out the various attractions there.
  • President George Bush Turnpike (TX-190), a toll road that can take you to Plano, has a toll booth at Rowlett Gantry. On State Highway 75, you’ll find two toll booths near Prairie Creek Park. You need a TollTag account to pay your toll charges at the booths. If you don’t have this account, you will need to call the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) office to pay your outstanding fee with a bank card.
  • There are two airports near Garland where you can get your car rental; Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL). DFW has Rental Car Center, which hosts over five rental companies, including reputable brands such as Budget, Avis, Hertz, Enterprise, and Alamo, among others. To get to the rental center, you can board the shuttle bus from the pick-up area on the terminal's lower level. DAL, on the other hand, also has a Rental Car Center that is located between the Parking Spot 2 and Dallas Love Field Garage B. They also have a shuttle service that ferries people from the airport terminal to the rental car center.
  • If you choose to rent an electric car in Garland, Volta, SemaConnect, and ChargePoint stations are scattered across the city. Also, some of Garland's best hotels offer their visitors free electric charging. Consider staying at Holiday Inn Express & Suites Dallas Northeast/Arboretum, Jupiter Inn, Motel 6 Dallas-TX/Northeast, Quality Inn & Suites Garland /East Dallas, Tru by Hilton Garland Richardson, and Hyatt Place Dallas/Garland/Richardson.
  • Driving in Garland is quite easy as long as you obey the basic traffic rules and apply common sense. For instance, always exercise extra caution when approaching intersections. If you’re making a right turn, you don’t need to wait until the lights are green, but you should double-check your mirrors just in case there’s a cyclist approaching the turn at the same time. You should also beware of jaywalkers within the city center as it has become quite common in recent years.
  • Ensure the kids are buckled in a child safety car seat when riding in cheap car rentals in Garland. Babies from birth to two years old should ride in rear-facing car seats as long as their safety seat's manufacturer allows them. Children above three can travel in forward-facing car seats until they are five, while those who outgrow forward-facing car seats can ride in booster seats. Children taller than 4’9” are permitted to use seat belts.
  • While traffic in Garland isn’t a huge problem, rush hours from 7 am to 9 am and from 4 pm to 6 pm can be quite hectic. Some of the busiest streets are Broadway Boulevard, West Walnut Street, and Forest Lane. Avoid them during those hours if you can, and take an alternative route. To help you navigate the streets much easier and evade traffic, you can install a GPS to your car rentals in Garland so that you can have a better sense of direction when driving around these streets.
  • Book your car hire in Garland at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Aug 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff was friendly and the process was seamless. Because we arrived early, we had a nice selection of cars from which to choose for our road trip adventure. Staff wore masks, and there was limited contact necessary for the transaction.

Cons:

We had been told that the additional insurance policy we had purchased would not cover one of the vehicles available for rental, and it happened to be a vehicle we were interested in taking on our trip. The reason we were told that the policy wouldn't cover that vehicle is because it was considered a "luxury" vehicle. Upon our return to Enterprise, we were told by a different associate that this was not true and that all the vehicles would be covered under the additional insurance policy we had purchased. This of course, disheartened us, as we would have preferred this vehicle. It seems as if the staff is not fully clear on the insurance guidelines. Regardless, we still enjoyed the vehicle with which we ended up.

Cons:

Hertz did not honor my reservation. When I was on the way to the rental facility they called and said they didn’t have any cars available. When I got there they had no alternatives, offered no help, so I was stuck with no car. I will never rent from Hertz again and would discourage anyone from using them. Use Budget or Avis or Enterprise or anyone else.

Pros:

Nothing. I had a flight delay, and by the time I arrived at their office, they were closed...FOR THE WEEKEND. When I tried to call another Hertz in Dallas all I got was the same recording telling me to use the website. The Hertz helpline was also closed ALL WEEKEND. I emailed them today, but since I made the reservation through a third party, I'm sure I just donated $250.

Cons:

The ability to talk to an actual person for help.

If I was informed of business hours prior to taking the vehicle. I missed my flight and had to purchase 5 new tickets for my family. I drove 30 mins one to return the car only to find out the location was closed for the day. I drove 30 mins back to drop the car off at the airport, which was really hard to do. After that I had to take the shuttle to the airport only to find out my flight had just finished boarding. There I had to purchase new tickets for my family.
