Car hires in Dallas: practical information

Where to rent a car in Dallas

Heading to Texas? Start planning your trip with cheap flights to Dallas, and then take a look at what car hire deals are available. Every major car hire agency has an office as Dallas Fort Worth Airport (DFW), and many are also at Love Field Airport (DAL) too.

Most all major American car hire company has an office in the city centre. Car is by far the best way to get around Dallas so you won’t be short of choice when it comes to comparing rental offers.

Driving in Dallas: parking and other tips

Rush hour traffic can be particularly bad in Dallas, so be warned! Otherwise, it’s a very sensible thing to get a rental car during your holiday in Dallas if you want to get out of the city and explore a bit more of Texas.

Parking is rarely free in Dallas, at least in the city centre. Your best bet would be to book a hotel in Dallas with its own car park (most of the big ones do) and has complimentary parking for its guests. Parking in a city car park can set your back as much as $10/day.

Road trips from Dallas: what to do, what to see

Denton

Denton

This small city is just a 30 minute drive from Dallas and has a charming historic town square but it’s probably best known for its nightlife. You can find live music just about everywhere you turn here, thanks to the town’s disproportionate number of musicians.

Lake Texoma

Lake Texoma

Want to cool off while on holidays in Dallas? Take your rent car up to Lake Texoma, right on the border with Oklahoma. It’s a popular spot for camping or just enjoying water sports like sailing, water skiing and windsurfing. It’s also a great spot for fishing!

Waco

Waco

Waco isn’t typically one of those places that visitors are like, “we HAVE to go to Waco!” but it does have some pretty cool tourist attractions. Most notably is the Dr. Pepper Museum, an entire building to pay homage to America’s favourite soda, which was invented in Waco in 1885. For sports fans, the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame will likely be of interest.
