Way over priced. SUV did not have any options to justify cost. No backup camera, no Navigation system, no Bluetooth, canvas seats. Basic model, yet charged like it was loaded. Avoid Budget/Alamo at Houston Airport location.

I liked the flexibility in changing reservation dates, easy of pick up, drop off and calls to address inquiries. The only lowlight was the difference in cost between what was shared with me during reservation and as of drop off.

Pickup & drop off was relatively painless. Neither rep demonstrated a welcoming attitude. All business. Pickup rep was eating while helping the customer ahead of me at pickup.A quick review of operating functions would have been helpful. I am a senior citizen not used to the new electronic wizardry. My wife & I spent a few minutes doing that at pickup and later again with headlight & windshield wiper settings. Picking up a vehicle and being thrust into traffic with rainy weather is not my idea of fun.

Nothing- see belowThis was the worst rental car experience of my life. I got to the airport and was told that my reservation was cancelled with no warning! Apparently Alamo had sold out all their cars. This was a major inconvenience for me, as I ultimately had to spend $270 getting to and from my destination, instead of the $120 I had paid. If I had also known this before arriving I could have also tried making different arrangements, but also found out that everyone else was sold out by the time I got there too. This was a massive inconvenience and I will never use Alamo again, and it made me seriously question my use of Kayak as well

you gave me a choice of car modelWe were deceived we arrived and the car that we ordered it was not there and they tried to give us a very dirty and scratched car when we asked to replace it with another one we were told that this is the only pickup that is where we lost half an hour of time to cancel the order and change the company that provides rental cars, fortunately, the other company was in the same airport room but our experience showed that this is very not professional and looks like a customer's deception.

The pick-up and drop-off was a smooth as I could imagine. Especially when looking around at how the other providers were operating.I got swindled by the associate checking me in. When choosing refuel options, I was shown a price per gallon that I would pay for them to fill up the tank. They "forgot" to mention that I would be charged for a full tank of gas at that price, regardless of amount of fuel used. Definitely tainted the image I previously had of Enterprise.

Easy check in serviceWaited 45 minutes to speak to an agent to pick up my rental. The agent told me they didn’t have a compact car for me and I’d have to wait an unknown amount of time or take a mini van. I was in Houston for a scheduled event I couldn’t be late for and very uncomfortable driving a mini van.

The Nissan Altima we rented from Houston Tx was disgusting and filthy. The car smelled of smoke for the whole time of the rental. We had to buy products to cover the smell but nothing helped. I’m allergic to smoke and was sick the whole time in the car. It also had garbage in the back seat and trunk. There was a nasty spill/splash of something sticky all over the inside of the front windows that I had to clean to even see out of them. I’m filing a formal complaint with Budget, hoping this doesn’t happen to someone else. Thank you

Do not buy the prepaid gas option. They tell you in Houston that the cost of gas is over $4.04, which is per gallon they charge at the Hertz ticket counter for prepaid. As soon as I left George Bush International airport, gas stations charged anywhere from $3.65 to $3.86 per gallon of gas. It is a convenience to prepay and not worry about filling up the gas tank prior to returning the car, however, the prices for gas in Texas are way lower than the Hertz charge and they come across as giving you a discount. It is not.

The car itself was a very cheap model for the money I spent.

Don't rent from them!They lied to me to get me to buy the 12.99 ezpass transponder. Then I told them THREE TIMES do not charge me for a one way drop off (which is when you drop off the car at a different pick up), and then they STILL charged me $260 for a one way drop off fee when I dropped off the car at the same location. I WANT MY MONEY BACK AND REFUND.
5.2 OkayJan 1 2019
Unreasonable feesExtremely high toll usage fees, $13 a day plus additional taxes and fees, added to an extra $17 per day! I couldn’t find any gas stations in the vicinity of the airport and could not fill up tank (brought it in around 3/4 full) and was charged $57 to refuel. I have never paid this much for a car rental before - $643 for 9 days or $70 a day!

Made a reservation. Flew to Houston. Went to counter to get said reservation. Nobody was there. No signs. No anything. Customer service just said they were closed. Was a sign that said cars were available in the garage. Thought there might be someone in the garage. Search the garage. Nobody in the garage. Finally went across the hall to Avis. Started the process of renting a car. Started telling her the story. She said, "Oh, your rental can be through us." ??? Okay. Got the car. The next day my plans changed and I had to go to New Orleans. Very long story short, had to call customer service 3 times to get zero answers to my question about returning the car to a place I didn't pick it up from. Customer service didn't know the answers so they would put me on hold and then either hang up on me or put me through the phone tree again and have to wait forever to talk to another agent. Finally gave up and just returned the car a few days later in New Orleans.

Friendly staff. Easy to find. Shuttle was great. I did not however appreciate the counter staff’s pushing a pre-paid toll route payment. I spent 9 days in the area and only on the last day did I utilize a toll route, and then it was only to spend a couple of the $120 that i paid up front and did not use. In addition, I was forced to purchase third party liability that I was not informed of prior to booking. Seems the “quoted price” and “actual price” are two different things. Will think twice about booking again.

Sixt's Houston office gave me a BMW (which I was driving to New Orleans) that needed immediate oil maintenance according to the warning lights on the dashboard. And I had to take 4+ hours out of my vacation time to get it serviced. Their roadside assistance agent said since they don't have a New Orleans office, I should take the vehicle into one of those quickie oil change shops. On Sunday, after a 1-hour wait at the first one, they said they didn't have the proper filter for it. On Monday, I tried another one and got the same response after waiting 45 minutes. On Tuesday, I begged the local BMW office to fit me in without an appointment before driving back to Houston. It took them 2 1/2 hours to get it done and I was nearly late for my flight.

The pickup was unbearably slow. There were only 8 groups in front of me. There were two agents. So each only had to process 4 each before they got to me. But they were unbearably slow. It took probably 40 minutes to get through the line. When my turn came up I stepped up to the counter, the agent confirmed all the details, I acknowledged all the tricky bits and right before she clicked print, she mumbled under her breath, “This isn’t scanning. I’ll have to do this all over by hand”. Unbelievable. But so what, it took me 3 minutes to create the reservation in the first place. But it took her another 15-20 minutes! Why all the pointing and clicking?! She had my address and credit card info and k ew all my answers. But she kept typing and typing. Total disaster.

Never againI was UNABLE to rent my previously reserved mini van for details I will not disclose on this review (please contact me if you would like further details). However, I will say it was due to the employee working that night. If it had not been for my cousin being with me, I would have been stranded without a rental and out the rental fee. All because of the cold hearted (I won’t say how I really feel about him) associate working that evening. I will never again rent from this company and I will never recommend them to anyone.

When I got there the lady (which was clearly on a bad mood) told me I had to pay an extra fee ($57 per day) because I was a foreign driver... I have rented many times from the big companies and never heard of such thing... also they said I had to pay an extra $25 because I was returning the car after hours (8pm) And over all I got a very damaged Van with over 90k miles.... I would never recommend this company unless they clear out their “policies and fees” upfront

The van I expected was not available the day of pick up. I did receive an email saying my rental is ready for pick-up at 11 a.m. the day before. I was dropped off and never received a call or email saying my van is no longer available. I had to rent a vehicle from a different vendor for triple the price of the van I requested.Communication to your customers. You sent the initial email saying that the my van was available for pick up yet NO ONE bother to notify me when it is no longer available.

While I was on my way to pickup the vehicle I called the facility to let them know instead of 5 I am expecting to arrive there at 530pm. I was told by the staff member on phone that they close at 4pm and she was told by her boss not to wait and asked me to come next morning at 8 am if still of interest.I will let other traveller's to note even when the booking is accepted for 5pm doesn't necessarily means the facility will be open

Getting ahold of someone is nearly impossible. I was given no instructions for after hours drop-off. I shouldn't have assumed. I had to listen to an automated phone message 4 times to get the address to the hotel correct. This hotel happens to loan out their shuttle bus for pick ups and drop offs, DURING BUSINESS HOURS ONLY! Dropping off the vehicle at any other time, with the hotel they tell you to use, will cost you an extra $20 for them to retrieve it. They are like 3 miles away from this hotel. They are inexpensive so I guess I can't complain too much but almost every other rental agency has provisions for getting you to and from the airport regardless of the time as a part doing business with them. Apart from this, I guess they're okay.

NOTHING. I called 3 times to have the shuttle pick me up. Then someone see the airport told her they were closed. I had to scramble to find another rental.They should be open during reservation pickup and drop off times.

The guy working the desk in Houston very friendly!The guy grabbing cars was in a rush! I was suppose to have an intermediate SUV, but got a mid-size car. He pulled up and got out, moved on to next costumer. He did not even look over the car

Top tips for hiring a car at Houston George Bush Intcntl Airport

  • A car rental at Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) is ideal for moving about Houston compared to other transportation means. First, you can travel per your schedule without having to wait for buses or taxis. You’ll also have the freedom to move about the city, especially if you’re going to explore multiple areas. Another reason to rent a car at the airport is the possibility of quick travel, whereby a car ride to downtown Houston can take about 25-27min while the bus time can clock close to an hour. You’ll also avert inconveniences stemming from hidden taxi or shuttle fees.
  • Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport has a car rental center onsite that operates daily 24/7, making the process of renting a vehicle simple. The rental car center lies a short 5min shuttle ride from the IAH terminals A, B, C, and E. Note that shuttles leave the terminals every 5min between 7 am and 11 pm and every 10min between 11 pm and 7 am, so don’t worry if you don’t get a ride immediately you exit Arrivals.
  • Houston highways are notorious traffic hotspots that can make it difficult to leave or access Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport, especially when traffic comes to a halt. The I-69 and the I-45 are common routes to take to and from the airport, and they usually experience morning and evening rush hours at around 7-9 am and 4-7 pm. You might want to avoid heading into the airport during morning peak times (to drop off your rental car) or leaving the airport during evening rush hour (after picking your vehicle). It’ll be beneficial to schedule your plane arrival or departures outside the peak-hour times.
  • Like the pick-up process, returning your Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport car rental is a seamless procedure. It generally comprises taking the vehicle back to the pick-up point. From the I-45 or I-69, merge onto John F. Kennedy Boulevard and drive along Will Clayton Parkway. Look out for signs to the Rental Car Center and head to the specific agency parking lot. Head towards the company rental counter, where a staff attendant will take the keys and contract. You can board a shuttle to the airport Arrivals Terminal after completing the return.
  • Book your car hire at Houston George Bush Intcntl Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
