Kennedy Boulevard and Will Clayton Parkway. Look for the Avis lot as you arrive. Our rental counter is open 24 hours. Once you’re done with your return, a shuttle will take you back to the main terminals.

How old do you have to be to rent a car in Houston, TX?

To rent a car from Avis in Houston, you must be at least 21 years of age. If you are between 21 and 24 years old, a daily surcharge of $27 will be levied. Certain vehicle restrictions apply as well. Renters 25 years of age and older have no underage surcharge or car restrictions.

What is the best type of car to rent in Houston?

The best car for you depends on your personal preferences and your purpose for visiting Houston. That’s why we offer a variety of different rental car options. We aim to meet your every need.  

Passenger Van Rental

A passenger van rental is ideal for any kind of large travel group. Our passenger vans, such as the Ford Transit, have 12 to 15 seats, which is perfect for hauling your group to Jackson Street BBQ to get some of the best Texas ribs and brisket you can find.

Minivan Rental

Rent a minivan like the Dodge Grand Caravan if you have a group of up to 7 or 8 passengers. Minivans are especially good for families with children, as you can easily access any child safety seats, and you know the kids will love Children’s Museum of Houston.

SUV Rental

Do you hear the forest roads at Sam Houston National Forest (about an hour north of Houston) calling your name? Rent one of our SUV models, like the Chevrolet Tahoe or the Ford Explorer, to get all of the utility you need.

Long-Term Car Rental

Are you staying in Houston for a month or more? A monthly car rental could be very beneficial to you. With a long-term rental, you can get a better rate for longer stays. It will help you save more money in the long term.
