KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Katy

  • Picking up a cheap car rental in Katy will enable you to explore the area at your own pace, whether traveling there for business or pleasure. Instead of spending money on rideshares or planning which bus or rail connections you'll need to make, enjoy the flexibility and independence of having a car and go sightseeing whenever you like. Even better, take a road trip to explore what Katy's surroundings have to offer.
  • In and around Katy, you will most likely find yourself driving on toll roads such as the Sam Houston Tollway, the Chisolm Trail Parkway and the HOT (High Occupancy Toll) lanes on US 290 and US 59. When you are considering Katy car rentals, give thought to buying the company’s toll program. Because the car you will be driving is registered to the car rental company, using your own methods to pay an electronic toll often do not work, causing you to have to eventually pay the toll as well as a late fee and a penalty from the rental car company.
  • If you opt for a car rental in Katy, on arrival at Houston International Airport, the car rental facility is a short five-minute drive from the airport's terminals. Passengers can take shuttles from the airport to the car rental center. These shuttles leave Terminals A, B, C, and E's baggage claim area every 5min. In addition, you can find blue and white buses with the "Rental Car Shuttle" signage at exits designated with "Rental Car" signage.
  • The William P. Hobby Airport (HOU), located 40 minutes southeast of Katy, provides a convenient place for reserving and collecting cheap car rentals in Katy. Rental car companies are located in the immediate vicinity of the airport and have service counters in the baggage claim area. Because HOU is a smaller airport, these agencies are relatively easy to access and tend to be open for much longer hours than agencies located in the city. Some Katy car rentals at HOU include Hertz, Enterprise, Budget, Avis, and more.
  • The feeder roads, which replace the standard access roads present nationwide, are a characteristic specific to Katy. Those looking forward for a car rental in Katy should be keen before entering or leaving a highway to be sure you're in the correct lane since the feeder roads cross numerous lanes of traffic. In addition, you'll need a keen eye and a reliable navigation system to ensure you're traveling in the direction of your destination due to regular road maintenance and construction. Driving there can be difficult if you're not used to Katy’s complex layout.
  • In cheap car rentals in Katy, you can not only explore the parks, museums, and rich railroad history of the city, but you can venture out to other renowned cities. Houston is only a 30-minute drive to the east, Austin is about a 2-hour drive to the northwest, and Galveston and Galveston Bay are just about 1 h 15 min to the southeast. Katy car rentals make it possible for you to explore some of the most famous cities in one of America's most famous states.
  • Make sure to avoid peak or rush hours when you may choose the time of day to drive. The busiest times in Houston are between 8 and 9 a.m. and between 5 pm and 6 pm. Some of the roadways in Katy that are always busy and congested during rush hours include North Eldridge Parkways to the Sam Houston Tollway, Highway 6 from 1-10 to the Westpark Tollway and North Fry Road. If you must drive in inclement weather, leave plenty of room between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. Before going for a Katy car rental, ensure the wiper blades and tire treads are in good condition.
  • Book your rental car in Katy at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in Katy are around -79% cheaper than other car types, on average

The maximum allowed speed on the highway is 70 mph. Always pay attention to the posted speed limits and obey them, especially at crossroads where traffic speed cameras can be present.

    Yes. Many cheap car rentals in Katy will allow you to drop your rental vehicle off at different locations throughout Texas and the country, including Dallas, Houston, New York, and Seattle. Cheap car rentals in Katy that offer this option include Avis, Hertz, and Budget. However, different companies have different rules and restrictions and allow you to drop off in different places. So, make sure you confirm all the particulars of your car rental pick-up and drop-off needs when you make your reservation.

    It's not hard to locate a parking lot in Katy. Parking, however, is typically permitted for up to two hours. At Katy Mills, parking is provided for free.

Another standard parking is Katy Station Parking Garage which offers park and rides services. It has two elevators and parking spaces for METRO park and rides. You can leave your car at one of these parks & rides and travel into the city using public transportation.

Cons:

I made the reservation for a car , I was assured it was there , and if I had'nt called to make a time change for pickup I would not have known there was no vehicle available . I passed on two sure oppurtunitys and that's what I got ! I was also told that someone would call me back and that never happened ! I drove to Enterprise location the next morning and got zero results . I then called Enterprise Corporate office and they wanted to make me a reservation for the following Monday ! The lady there assured me a district manager would contact me and that never happened ! Todaybis 3/10/21 and I still have not heard a word from Enterprise !!!To Enterprise : I will walk before I rent from you again !

Cons:

Perhaps informing car rental policy Prior to making reservation. A major credit card is needed. Without one, a debit card will not suffice. I was told when picking the car up, credit card with debit symbol is not accepted. No help either as you're spoken to as if you are a thief. No kindness given looking at you as well tone of voice so direct you’re spoken to with disrespect. The worst experience ever renting a car!

KAYAK

Pros:

No mechanical trouble

Cons:

The car, a Chevy Malibu, was dirty when it was brought to us; smears on the front and sides glass, dirty outside and I found a used fork in the back seat. It smelled strongly of cigarette smoke and everyone that got in it over our weekend commented. We had to stop early on and buy a gas-station freshener and it still didn't cover it. It had 35K miles and showed it. But it got us there and back, and I guess that's what counts.

6.0 Okay

Mar. 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

I spent 1.5 hours cleaning the vehicle before our trip, it was filthy inside and out. Brake rotors were warped which caused heavy vibrations when braking, particularly in mountainous regions. This was unsafe. Wiper fluid was empty. USB ports did not work, BluTooth did not work: for a 2,000 mile journey my phone would not connect so only sketchy radio through west TX and NM. 1st world problems I get it but I paid for a premium rental. Upon drop off the Branch was understaffed. Mgt had 1 Rep working the counter during Spring Break.

Cons:

Counter service was great upon pickup. Vehicle was nice after I cleaned it.

Cons:

I made an online reservation and when I arrived to pick up the vehicle I was told I needed to wait 40 minutes because it was in route to the location. After about an hour of waiting, I called and was told the vehicle was not available. I lost that time and it delayed my trip. I asked to cancel the reservation and after a few minutes I received a call back saying they had found a vehicle but I needed to wait another 40 minutes. I declined, overall very poor customer service and it ruined my trip with the family.

I was never told this. It was just written in light grey font in the confirmation email I got from kayak. The car ended up costing double.

Mar. 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

The car drove great and was good on gas.

Cons:

First, we had to wait 30 minutes after pickup time for our rental, and it wasn't washed or ready on time. second, It was a nice car, but the price for the size was a lot. Lastly, we turned the car in on time, but they charged us $25 ×2/ days. When we called the first 2 times they said they'd call back by certain times and never did. The 3rd time the lady told me we had a balance owed of $15 which was not told at time of purchase online or when we picked up car. Then proceeded to tell me she didn't have that they took the $25/2 in the system so I needed to call my bank. She was rude and talked to me like I was stupid. I hung up, and my husband called. It turned out that the lady that took the keys when we returned the car ON TIME never put in the system that we returned the car. So, that's why there was a "balance owed" and they were charging the $25 a day. Very bad service, and won't use that location again.
