Top tips for hiring a car in San Antonio

  • Travelers with flights to San Antonio will be happy to hear that San Antonio Airport’s hire car center is a quick and easy reach from the Arrivals Terminal. The hire car center is found across from Terminal B through the Sky Bridge.
  • San Antonio is undoubtedly a car city so, if you want to make the most out of your time there, it is best to have a car at your disposal. For example, if you plan on catching a Spurs game live at the AT&T Center, you could spend 30 minutes on public transport getting there from downtown or you could drive there in 15 minutes. Chances are your hotel will not be directly downtown, so if you plan on visiting the River Walk or the Alamo, you will probably need a car to get to them.
  • Visitors to San Antonio will be happy to hear that rush hour is not nearly as severe as it is in Dallas or Houston. In general, the morning rush hour is from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., while the afternoon/evening rush hour goes from around 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The main areas to avoid during rush hour are the central parts of the old downtown and I-37 on the way into town in the morning.
  • One of the main struggles new drivers have in San Antonio is navigating the city’s wheel-and-spoke highway system, in which the city’s major roads and highways merge. What drivers will find is that, as the various highways come in closer to the city, they will merge onto the same highway. This can be quite confusing to drivers, but it is easy enough to navigate if you pay close attention and keep your eyes open.
  • Book your car hire in San Antonio at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
