KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Stafford

  • Depending on your circumstances, car rentals in Stafford, Texas, can be more cost-effective than owning a vehicle, especially if you're visiting for a short period or don't drive frequently. You can avoid the costs of maintenance, insurance, and parking. Still, with a rental car, you can easily access attractions that might be less accessible by public transportation, such as Brazos Bend State Park and Fort Bend Museum. Most importantly, public transportation systems often involve waiting times and fixed schedules. With a rental car, you can save time by getting directly to your destination without unnecessary delays.
  • If you plan to arrive in Stafford, TX, by air, you will likely land at William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) or George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH). Both airports host major car rentals in Stafford, including Avis, Budget, and Hertz, allowing visitors to leap into the adventure as soon as they land. At both HOU and IAH, you will need to take a shuttle bus from the designated pickup area to the Rental Car Center. The shuttle buses typically run at regular intervals, making it convenient to reach the rental car facility. It's worth noting that airport layouts and services can change over time. So, consider contacting the information service desks once you land.
  • Texas is known for its friendly and hospitable culture, which can also extend to the roads. You might find that drivers in Stafford tend to be courteous and willing to give way to others, especially in situations like merging or allowing pedestrians to cross. In addition, Texas is known for its pickup trucks and larger vehicles. It's common to see trucks on the road. Therefore, as you drive Stafford car rentals, remember to respect the space needed by these larger vehicles.
  • Stafford experiences relatively lighter traffic congestion compared to major cities. However, there can still be times when traffic becomes more congested, particularly during weekday rush hours and when there are special events or roadwork. Rush hours in Stafford typically coincide with traditional commuting times, roughly from 7 am to 9 am and 4 pm to 6 pm on weekdays. During these times, you might experience more traffic on roads leading to and from major employment centers, including US Route 59, West Airport Boulevard, Murphy Road, US Route 90A, and Interstate 69/Highway 59.
  • Book your car hire in Stafford at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Stafford are around 16% more expensive than other car types, on average

Cons:

My girlfriend and I each have insurance policies that extend coverage to rentals. When my girlfriend picked up the car from the enterprise office, the employee would not let her take it without the additional coverage. She repeatedly insisted, contrary to enterprise policy, that the insurance was mandatory. Subsequently the rental rate almost tripled. When I found out I immediately contacted the enterprise office. I was told they would call me back before the close of business that day, which never happened. I will be pursuing recourse with enterprises corporate office and kayak.

Pros:

Customer service was great at this location. They were very nice, courteous and helpful. The price was exactly what was quoted which was the best deal I could find in the area and couldn't have asked for anything more.

Cons:

Nothing that I didn't like. I got everything that was expected.

Pros:

At least in Houston, renting a car at IAH was literally going to cost double which is ridiculous. So good to have options elsewhere in the city. ;)

Cons:

I learned the hard way that not all Hertz locations have off hour drop off capability (likely this is for all rental companies). It was partly my fault for forgetting to change the default noon to noon drop off times when booking online, but the end result was a big hassle given our pick up location was closed all day Sunday and didn't open Monday until 7:30 am. We had a 10:00 am international flight to catch and this wasn't an airport location. We changed the drop off to a nearby location for $30 but there it was anything but intuitive. Got it done after much hassle and since I haven't heard anything I assume all is well.
