2.0 Mediocre9 Nov 2020
Pros: NothingCons: When i booked the reservation i typed in AUS for Austin airport the first item that popped up was offsite. did not realize it was off site until the day off and on site was out of cars. ended up paying a lot more. Kayak automatically booked my reservation when i was just trying to see the total cost
10.0 Excellent29 Oct 2020
Pros: Staff was amazing during pick up and drop off. The car we rented was perfect no issues -excellent service provided.Cons: Great job especially during this time.
5.6 Okay8 Sep 2020
Pros: Drop off in vegas was easy and staff was kind helpful.Cons: Pick up process in Austin was poor. Agent just said follow me. He walked around vehicle and then said i could go. He did not do a vehicle check with me meaning confirming there are no damages. Didnt tell me where keys were and did not ask if i had questions regarding vehicle functions. I had to go get him and ask where keys were. At that point the agent made me feel rushed and as if i was an inconvienence not a customer. I had to fingure out how to use lights, cruise control ect. I had never driven that car before so perhaps the agents should be mindful of that.
5.2 Okay3 Sep 2020
Pros: N/ACons: If I reserve a sub-compact or economy car, then that is what I want and expect --- and not to to be 'up-sized' to a bigger car - regardless of rate. Valuable vacation time was wasted on this issue. Honor the reservation !
10.0 Excellent3 Jul 2020
Pros: Yes
10.0 Excellent21 Jun 2020
Pros: Easy peasy, grateful for the extra care to be safe with covid risk and staff was awesome!Cons: Nothing- perfect!!
7.2 Good15 May 2020
Pros: Stuff was friendly, processing was quickCons: I made a reservation for Mitsubishi Mirage, but they made me take Chevy Spark. The Mirage has standard seating for 5 passengers; the Spark can only carry 4. The Mirage Hatchback has 3.2 cubic feet more passenger volume than the Spark. I am not going to use Enterprise car rental next time.
5.6 Okay15 May 2020
Pros: YesCons: The AC stopped working less than halfway to my destination. I had to change the vehicle.
10.0 Excellent3 May 2020
Pros: Pleasant staff. Quick check out and check in process.Cons: Nothing to add.
8.4 Excellent19 Feb 2020
Pros: Easy pick up and drop off!Cons: Car offered was not as fun so asked for a different one that was not a price difference and got a fun sporty one!

2.0 Mediocre19 Oct 2020
Cons: Prepared to be nickeled and dimed. Gas tank showing well above full, but they can squeeze a little more in? Charge. Return a few minutes late? Charge. All of course within the Terms and Conditions that you sign when you rent the car, but up to you if you want to do business with someone who is going to take every possible opportunity to squeeze every cent out of you as you can.
10.0 Excellent13 Aug 2020
Pros: Pick-up and drop off was a breeze. I loved the car.Cons: Nothing that I can think of at the moment.
7.2 Good6 Jul 2020
Pros: The lady who helped us rent our vehicle was very helpful.Cons: The wait for a car at the beginning was very long, over 45 minutes.
3.2 Mediocre26 May 2020
Pros: Nothing. The whole experience was horrible.Cons: Havv VG e employees there to help customers. There was nobody!
6.0 Good17 Mar 2020
Pros: The car was clean and drop off was easyCons: I am active duty military on orders, I have rented cars thru numerous car rental agencies. When I arrived at budget they would not accept my military extension drivers license they said I could not drive the car!!! If I didn’t have my fiancé with me I would have been screwed. It was rude and they lack the ability to understand uniformed personnel extensions and the importance of accepting such extensions. I personally will never book with them again
10.0 Excellent12 Mar 2020

7.2 Good18 Feb 2020
Cons: My car type wasn’t available (again) and we were given a pickup truck. It operated well but turning radius was terrible and ride was rough.
9.2 Excellent13 Feb 2020
Pros: Check-in agent was friendly and helpful—-it was actually the Avis agent that took care of me because the Budget line was held up a bitCons: Drop off of car took too long because too few agents were available to check people back in.
8.8 Excellent10 Feb 2020
Cons: Well, I like a clean vacuumed vehicle especially in the inside. My trunk was dirty, the back seats needed wiping down and someone should check that. Other than that, everything else was excellent. Thank you Shelly for your help with my needs.

Pros: long line at booth with one attendant trying to cover avis budget and payless checkins. had to cancel because the wait would have made me late for my appointment.
8.0 Excellent20 Oct 2020
Pros: The staff was very helpful and friendly.Cons: Cars could have been available.
4.8 Okay23 Nov 2019
Pros: The Avis and Budget people were fine When I had an issue and had to speak to a Payless person It may be the worst customer service experience I ever had I’m assuming they are going out of business and everyone there is just angry I would avoid using this company till they figure this out Whatever money you may save using them isn’t worth it
9.6 Excellent3 Sep 2019
Pros: Very uncomplicated pick up and drop off! Friendly staff working efficient. We got an upgrade and were totally satisfied with our car! Excellent value for money!Cons: Counter was closed and we were sent to budget counter which was also closed. So all people were directed to Avis, which meant quite a bit of a queuing.
2.0 Mediocre23 Aug 2019
Pros: There was no staff available at the Payless at the Austin airport. Staff at the Austin airport was rude and clueless. It took 1.5 hrs for the Budget rental agency to find a car for me. Instead of promised Chrysler 200 or similar car, they offered a 10 seater van or a pickup truck. inappropriate optiCons: Never take any deal from Payless
6.8 Good20 Aug 2019
Cons: I did not go on one toll road but was lead to believe I probably would be on one. Paid $11 a day for that :( Also, young man when I returned my car was not helpful.
6.4 Good17 Aug 2019
Pros: Drop off was easy.Cons: Pick up! We had to walk all way down to end of counter just to see a very small sign that said to go to get in line at Hertz.
4.0 Okay27 Jul 2019
Cons: Austin has a system of toll highways and the rental person assured me I needed a toll pass for my travels to Kerrville and back when I showed them my route on the map. This added over $50 to the rental. The road to Kerrville is NOT tolled and toll roads are easily avoided in Austin. I felt swindled.
7.6 Good23 Jul 2019
Cons: I had to bounce between 2 counters bc the computer wasn't hooked up to the printer They sent me to a car space that was empty so I had to return to the counter(s)
4.4 Okay18 Jul 2019
Pros: easy pick-up.Cons: Charged me extra day, without letting me know.

Pros: I did not interact with the team at the drop-off location, but the express return was great.Cons: The pick-up of the vehicle was a mess. Not because the staff was bad, but there wasn't any enforcement of mask wearing and social distancing in the line. As a high-risk individual, I would have appreciated greater enforcement.
8.0 Excellent27 Oct 2020
Pros: The staff was extremely helpful and kind. They were not a problem in any way, and in fact should be commended for trying to help.Cons: The fact that I searched a pickup at the Austin Airport, and then I rented a car under the assumption that I was to pick it up at the airport only to find out that the address for pickup was not at the Austin airport was really inconvenient. The clerk was not able to change my dropoff once I arrived at the pickup location, which wasn't his fault, it was the silly policy that Hertz has with their policies, and prepaid amounts offered on their website.
2.0 Mediocre19 Oct 2020
Pros: After walking 20 min to pick up the rental car on Saturday, the Staff said too bad about your confirmation, we have a waiting list and we have no cars until Monday. They said they tried to reach me, liars. Such a disappointment and no offer to make it better. Welcome to Austin.Cons: I would have loved to have ha a rental car for Saturday so we could have done what we had planned to do.

2.0 Mediocre14 Oct 2020
Pros: NothingCons: This was supposed to be booked at the airport and it was booked at an offsite location. My flight arrived at 12:40p which is 40 minutes after the location closed. $75 Uber ride and a rental vehicle from a different company that cost me an airport drop fee. Will never book through Kayak again.

Pros: Very nice drop off staff. Check-in guy wanted me take economy car since it was intermediate sold out; he did not offer me a discount for smaller car. I asked for intermediate or larger; he gave me a larger car. He was very polite though.Cons: See above.
2.0 Mediocre3 Oct 2019
Pros: They tricked at the counter, the attendant never told me I was going to be charged for an upgrade. When I received my final bill by email, I realized they charged me $30 for an "upgrade" that was never delivered or discussed at the counter.Cons: AS BAD AS IT COULD BE! The car was in terrible condition, ketchup on the door panel, plus had a disgusting juice spill all around the cupholders. Employees maybe we're waiting for a customer to clean up the car. The car had mirror lever is broken, head console buttons (SOS) where jammed/broken.
5.2 Okay12 Aug 2019
Pros: I didn’t get the car or help from the staff. Still charged full amount.Cons: I scheduled a same day pick up via my phone And the city auto populated to the neighboring city. I didn’t realize this until I went to pick the car up - kiosk guy directed me to customer service line but no one answered x 5. Called again the next day and was told it was too late.

Pros: helpful staff, easy drop off & pickupCons: Car had almost no engine power, it was dangerously slow-speedup while merging onto freeway ramps, changing lanes the car was diesel volkswagon Jetta - i felt horrible for causing much more pollution compared to gas/hybrid

6.4 Good20 May 2019
Pros: We ended up with a truck, albeit an impractical one, with decent features at a great price. Drop off experience was pleasant.Cons: Beware of their dealer’s / manager’s special. They’ll try and give you a diesel vehicle and lie at pickup to convince you to upgrade and/or tack on extras. Worst rental pickup experience I’ve ever had! Go with Fox if you need a low-budget rental.

Pros: Drop off was very easy, car itself performed well.Cons: LIne to get car was extremely long. it was moved to hertz counter that had only 2 people working and at least 30 people in line. When we picked up the car it had a certified clean label on the door which was a joke. Dog hair everywhere in the car - stuck to steering wheel, etc. A bottle of CBD oil in the cupholder with dog hair stuck to it. Passenger side dashboard was filthy like someone put their dirty feet/shoes up on it. Clearly no one cleaned or wiped it down at all. if we weren't in a hurry and hadn't already stayed in line for an hour we would have rejected the car.
3.6 Mediocre8 Sep 2020
Pros: It was utterly disappointing to see that the reservation counter was closed at 11:00pm when I had the reservation to pick up at 11:00pm. on 9/4/20. I left multiple voice messages to the manager on duty but no one had a courtesy to call back ever! The reservation should NOT have been allowed to start with if the counter is closed at the time of pick up. Also, the local Thrifty airport contact phone number informs that the. counter is opened at the Austin Airport till Midnight!!. I had to spend another hundred dollars, come back again the next morning to pick up my rental vehicleCons: Provide compensation for the inconvenience and better communication on the reservation and the counter hours of operation and the availability of the cars
2.0 Mediocre21 Mar 2020
Cons: a refund or credit for Coronavirus cancellation.
8.4 Excellent19 Feb 2020
Cons: I was surprised by all the charges at the airport. It ended up so much more expensive than I thought. Staff were excellent but it just cost too much
7.6 Good6 Jan 2020
Pros: Everyone was nice and the process was easyCons: I made the reservation on line (the mother) using my credit card. The confirmation said the driver would have to present license and credit card at pick up (which was going to be my adult son). When we picked the car up we were not allowed to do this without paying extra to have him be the driver. We were told because the reservation was in my name I had to be the first driver. If the on-line reservation would have stated this we would have had him make the reservation. Seems like you could have been more accommodating at the pick up time. Not sure why it makes a difference whose name is on the reservation.
6.8 Good28 Nov 2019
Pros: Very friendly people especially at the pickup and dropoffCons: First I wanted a car with a navigation system, after 45 minutes at pickup we figured out that the car did not have navigation, then too late an behind schedule had to leave. This created a lot of issues on my trip having to navigate by cell phone.....major problem. Second spent 3 hours on the phone with multiple calls trying to determine if I could drop the car at Hobby Houston at 4am....called and called and called again. Will not rent from Thrifty in the future.
5.2 Okay26 Nov 2019
Pros: The car was clean but also Gas tank was not full at pick upCons: Be prepared to wait in line at the counter for at least an hour before getting your rental. Counter guy says we have a choice & we go out to get our car and we don’t have any selection. The staff outside did not provide us undivided attention & lacked customer service. The exit gate guy took our key fob and did not return it upon us leaving the gate. Luckily we figured out the fob was missing before leaving the premises & turned around. At return it seemed to be such a hassle to close out my rental due to agent nowhere to be found. I wanted to confirm my charges due to the horrible service at pick up and I had to take a picture on my phone from the guy’s tablet as a form of receipt. This location lacked customer service and coming from a formal rental car employee, I know what is expected from these people and traveling all day the last thing you want is a bad rental car experience.
10.0 Excellent18 Nov 2019
Pros: Staff did NOT try to oversell!
2.8 Mediocre1 Nov 2019
Cons: The car smelled like vomit then broke down halfway through the rental period. To remediate this, Thrifty asked me accompany a tow truck driver to a location 40 minutes away. Instead, I chose to end my rental. Since then I haven’t been able to get any information from Thrifty regarding a refund. Very frustrating to deal with their roadside assistance, customer service, and the local franchise.
2.0 Mediocre16 Oct 2019
Cons: Clerk was at restroom. I had to rent from Budget at a higher price.

Didn't explain what to do if the car had any scratches or damage before leaving the facility.

Pros: NothingCons: We waited in line to get the car for almost an hour. They then told us they had none of the midsize SUV’s, which is what we rented. We were charged $200 to get a bigger SUV because we couldn’t fit our passengers and luggage in a car, which is the whole reason we reserved a midsize SUV. After an hour of all the waiting we go out to the spot out car was supposed to be and there was no car. We had to back inside and wait until the clerk could help us. They gave us a different car that was filthy and sounded like it was going to die the entire time. When we returned it we were charged 15% tac and that on top of the $200 extra for the upgrade we didn’t want but weee forced to take were more than the original advertised rental fee. I will NEVER use dolllar rental again.

Nice car but it left the lot low on washer fluid.Pros: It was a nice car. Staff was friendlyCons: The Washer fluid was low and so every 10 minutes a bell would chime signaling the fluid was low. Fluid levels should have been checked before the car was put out available to drive. It was extremely annoying to have that chime every 10 minutes. Had to walk a mile to get to the rental building and I am disabled. There should have been a golf cart or some way for people to get to the rental building besides walking. The signs where to return rental cars at the airport were horrible with the construction.

5.2 Okay22 Feb 2017
Pros: National in Austin went fairly well getting the vehicle. The representative went overboard in trying to get me to upgrade however and when I got to the garage, it didn't appear there were any slightly larger cars available. This left the impression I would have been in the exact same car.

Make sure it’s not a sub-contractorPros: Clean, new car in great condition. Drop-off was quick and easy.Cons: The rental was not with Europcar as advertised. It was in fact with Advantage rent a car who, I guess, sub-let cars. Pick up was slow (why do I have to provide all my personal details when booking if none of these are forwarded to the rental company??). Also, when I called to try to extend the hire by a few hours, I was quoted a price equivalent of more than a day’s rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Austin

  • Whether travelers seek to explore the city of Austin or attractions like the Austin Zoo or the Colorado River, a hire car will get you to all destinations in no time. You don’t have to worry about timetables and public transport delays when you can enjoy your time in Austin with a car. Houston and San Antonio are about 165 and 80 miles away respectively, and for travelers staying longer in Austin, they are definitely worth a day trip.
  • Get your hire car conveniently at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and be in the city center within 15 minutes. The hire car center is located in Level 1 at the customer counters, but signs will guide you there from the terminal. There are also shuttles operating between the terminal and the car hire center.
  • Austin is a bike-friendly city, so make sure you do not cross bike lanes and risk injuring a cyclist. Also be aware that the speed in Austin is rather high compared to many other cities. As Austin has interstates crossing in lower and upper decks, it can be a challenge to navigate the system at first, so drive extra carefully and attentively to take the right exit.
  • Try to avoid rush hours in Austin to save time and energy. Especially the Interstate 35 is clogged up 6-9 AM and 4-7 PM, and waiting times can be up to an hour. Also note that, even though Austin is known for being rather warm, there can be ice in winter that will make the streets more dangerous and slippery.

  • Unless posted otherwise, general speed limits for Austin are 15 mph in alleys and around schools and 30 mph in residential areas. 55 mph is allowed on unnumbered highways during nighttime and, during the day, drivers can speed up to 60 mph. On numbered highways, the maximum speed limit is 65 mph at night and 70 during the day.

  • The average petrol price is around $2.60 per gallon in Austin, depending on where travelers refill their tank. Petrolstations like Costco or Sam’s Club are known to be cheaper in comparison to many other petrol stations; try to avoid refilling your tank close to the airport, as petrol prices usually are higher there.

  • Parking is available on the streets of Austin or in garages, public parking lots or, of course, your hotel (if available). When parking on the street, note that it could be metered and be sure to check how long parking is permitted. Alternatively, choose a parking garage such as the ABM Parking, LAZ Parking, or 924 E Dean Keeton Street Parking, where your car can be parked for longer stretches of time -- but always read the signs to be sure.
