Hertz in Texas City

Texas is the second most populous and second largest state in the USA. Texas borders Mexico and is a vast state of desert and grassland, pine forest and coastline with major cities including Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. A Hertz car rental in Texas as an essential component of any trip to the Lone Star state.

Before the discovery of oil in Texas in the 20th century, cowboys and cattle were strongly associated with the state. Nowadays, it has a highly diversified economy and high tech industry with many Fortune 500 companies located in the cities. To give you some sense of scale and just how big the Lone Star State really is, Texas on its own is bigger than France! El Paso in the west is over 700 miles (1126km) away from Houston in the east. So because of its huge size and somewhat rough terrain, expect to travel huge distances in your Hertz car rental in Texas if you plan to visit different towns and cities.

As you might expect, many of the roads and highways in Texas are extremely straight and long. Drivers also have a tendency to over take you on either side, so driving in Texas requires you to adopt a different style of driving than you otherwise would elsewhere in the USA. Be aware of people overtaking you on your right as well as on your left.

There are around 250 Hertz locations to rent a car in Texas.

Driving and Parking in Texas

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 21 to rent a car in Texas. If you are from outside the European Union you will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Texas, take a look at our page about renting a car in the USA .

Drivers in Texas have a tendency to drive extremely fast. Initially this may be a little unnerving, but if you remain alert to being overtaken on both sides then you will quickly get used to the Texan style of driving. Driving conditions and speed limits can also change. Houston for example is subject to fog while you may find the speed limit quickly reduces as you leave the highway and enter a town. Be alert to sudden thunderstorms and changes in speed limit, and adjust your driving style accordingly.

Parking meters are to be found in most of the towns in Texas, with lots and garages also available in the cities. Like many large cities, parking spaces in Texas are at a premium and can sometimes be difficult to find. Free parking is usually available after 6pm, on Sundays and on bank holidays. Make sure you always read the parking signs and observe the parking regulations to prevent your Hertz car rental in Texas getting towed, or the driver receiving a fine.

Key Routes

The Interstate Highway system in Texas consists of 10 primary routes and 7 auxiliary routes. Coming from the north, I-35 is split into two branches at Denton with the I-35E continuing onto Dallas and I-35W onto Forth Worth. The I-35 then continues south through the state before reaching Austin, San Antonio and continuing on to Mexico. The I-20 crosses from west to east and converges at Dallas and Forth Worth

Major Highways

The I-10 and I-20 both pass through El Paso in the west before the I-10 continues onto Tucson, Arizona. The I-20 continues west onto Mississippi and Alabama. The I-35 stretches north onto Oklahoma. Toll roads are also more common in Texas than any other American state because of the relatively low revenues received from the state’s gasoline tax.
