KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Lubbock

  • Rent a car during your stay in Lubbock to explore the sights of the city at your own convenience, rather than having to deal with exorbitant taxi prices or the hassle of using the fixed routes of the public transportation system. Car rentals in Lubbock will give you the feel of a local as you move around the city, while also giving you the freedom to tour the outskirts. For example, Buffalo Springs Lake, south of Lubbock, is approximately 11.9 miles away.
  • Lubbock Preston Smith Int’l Airport (LBB), which is the major airport in the area, conveniently has a number of onsite car rentals in Lubbock, as well as off-site agencies, which are accessible via the airport shuttle services. Some of the car rental agencies onsite include Avis, National Car Rental, Alamo, Hertz and Thrifty. The offices and counters for these companies are located at the baggage claim area. Rental cars are parked outside the baggage claim area.
  • Lubbock is a largely populated city and, therefore, it is important to be on the lookout for jaywalkers as you drive. There are also a number of people that walk around the city center while texting and talking on the phone, which can make the road dangerous. One should also be cautious of weather conditions, such as hail, that can cause chaos on roads but are luckily not common.
  • Just like most crowded cities, Lubbock is usually affected by rush hour, especially in the morning hours between 7am and 9am, and in the evening between 4pm and 7pm, due to crowded roadways and fatigued drivers and pedestrians. Drivers are advised to stay patient and remain in their lanes. New drivers are recommended to book vehicles from Lubbock car rentals with GPS monitors so as to be able to navigate through unfamiliar roads.
  • Book your car hire in Lubbock at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate car hire in Lubbock are around 53% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Lubbock

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Lubbock?

    Due to the large number of vehicles that operate between the city centers, it would be advisable to rent a small compact vehicle, which is ideal for touring the local sights.

Got to the airport in Lubbock Tx and Hertz did not have a car for my Reservation, so luckily Enterprise at the airport had a rental and I rented one from them at the cost was about $20.00 more at Enterprise. I was just I was able to get a car at a very short notice from Enterprise. Will I every rent a car from Hertz again? At this time and in my mind NO. Hertz really put me in a bind not only that but late for a meeting 16 miles from the airport.

There is NO HERTZ RENTAL AT THE LUBBOCK AIRPORT! Please do not list Hertz as an option. I had to cancel my Hertz reservation and rent from National. There are several other car rentals at the Lubbock Airport, but NOT HERTZ.

When I came to dropoff the car, the lights were on, the door said "OPEN, PLEASE COME IN". Yet the door was locked. I waited for 30 minutes for someone to come by, and nothing. I tried calling a phone number, but just got the robot voice menu. I eventually gave up and used the dropbox, but I had no idea if that was allowed (because I was after hours). Very unprofessional.

Pros:

The easy drop off if I had to pick some thing but I barely cared for that.

Cons:

I was told that I was going to get a certain type of car. When I showed up they offered me a smaller car. I needed a car with a trunk that’s why I picked the size car than I needed. She said that there was nothing that she could do but if I want to pay $20 extra a day I could upgrade to a Tahoe. I had something for a free upgrade and she refused to do it because she said that there was no stock but yet she was offering me an upgrade. I had to upgrade because the car they gave me could not fit anything since it was not the correct size and turns out the moment I got it, there was a death bottle under the seat and all kinds of other trash in the car. Even though the car was dirty which should be clean especially with Covid they couldn’t give me a different car so I had to deal with a nasty car that smelled like smoke. Overall I don’t think I would ever want to use Avis again. The lady was so rude from the moment I walked in. It definitely made you feel like they did not care for you as a consumer. This is the worst rental place ever, don’t waste your time in try another company that actually cares about your business.

Cons:

There were no clear instructions as to where or how to drop off the vehicle. There was signage directing all car rentals to a lot with spaces numbered and organized by company. No other instructions or personnel were available to indicate where to go or what to do next. A simple sign saying to walk back up the hill to the airport terminal would have sufficed. There were five other people wandering around asking each other if anyone knew where to go. I had to call the Alamo phone line three times before someone could help me with instructions. Overall, the Lubbock location needs vast improvements to customer care.

Pros:

The return location is a little confusing - you have to drop the car at the rental return lot then go up to the airport to turn in the keys - but I figured it out easily. A man met me in the lot to drive me up to the airport, which was very nice. & When I got inside I just dropped the keys to the employee at the counter & went on my way. Super easy, & they were very friendly! Would definitely recommend & use again!!!

Pros:

I placed my reservation online to pick it up at a specific location in Lubbock. I called ahead to verify that my reservation was made and was told that the facility closed at 2pm. I made sure to be on site by 12:30pm only to find out that this address was closed down. I saw a note to visit another facility within the same city. I drove to that site and was there just after 1pm. They didn't have any trucks on hand like I had reserved. They did find one at a 3rd location. They did offer to get the vehicle for me but the 3rd address was only 2 miles from my home. By the time I got to the 3rd site, they already rented 1 of the 3 trucks remaining. I was able to obtain a truck and drive to my destination but I feel there was much confusion and all of the employees were aware of the incorrect address.

Cons:

The site needs to be updated so that your potential renters won't waste their time going to wrong address. And if I place a reservation for a specific type of vehicle, then there should be one available when I get there and not just by chance.
