Hertz in George Bush Intercontinental airport (IAH)

Houston George Bush Intercontinental airport is one of the busiest airports in Texas and the 11th busiest in the US as a whole. Sprawling over 11,000 acres, it sees more than 41million passengers travel through its facilities each year. Just 20 minutes from the city of Houston, it provides a great base from which to explore America’s ‘Deep South’ and the area surrounding the Gulf of Mexico.

The USA is a driver’s paradise, and the best way to explore the Lone Star State is by car. Hertz Car Rental has a dedicated branch located conveniently within the airport, so you can get on with your journey as soon as you land. Hertz Car Rental has over 90 years of experience in the car rental market and can help you ensure your journey goes smoothly from start to finish.

About the airport

A part of the city’s airport system since 1969, Houston George Bush Intercontinental airport offers domestic, international and intercontinental flights to more than 200 destinations around the world, with over 650 daily departures. The five terminals all have access to a Marriott Hotel within the airport itself and there are all of the usual facilities and services you’d expect from a major transport hub.

The five terminals are all linked above ground by the free Skyway train service. A free underground train service connects to each of the terminals and the hotel, making George Bush Intercontinental a simple airport to navigate despite its size.

How to rent a car at Houston George Bush Intercontinental airport

The airport has a Consolidated Rental Car Facility, first opened in 2003, where you can find the Hertz Car Rental branch (open seven days a week between 5am and 2pm). A free shuttle bus service will take passengers to the facility — simply go through the door marked ‘Rental Car Exit’ after Baggage Claim and wait at the bus stop. Look for the maroon and white buses marked ‘Rental Car Shuttle’.

You must be at least 25 years of age to rent a car in Texas, although this can be reduced to 20 with the appropriate Age Differential Charge. You must also have a full and valid driver’s licence. If this is not in English, you will also need an International Driver’s Permit (IDP) as well as your license. Please have your credit card to hand and, if you pre-booked your rental vehicle, your reservation details.

Additional information

• Follow signs for ‘Rental Car Exit’ after Baggage Claim to pick up the free shuttle bus that will take you to the Car Rental Facility.
