KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Odessa

  • If you’re traveling to Odessa, you need a rental car to help you get to different destinations. While the city has a functional public transport system, it isn’t as flexible and convenient as having your car rentals in Odessa would be. With your rental, you can easily go anywhere at any time without needing to wait on somebody. You can check out some of the popular sites in the city, such as Stonehenge Replica and the famous Odessa Meteor Replica. Additionally, you can freely visit neighboring Midland, which is roughly 25 miles away, and check out amazing places such as The I-20 Wildlife Preserve and the Museum of the Southwest.
  • If you are traveling to Odessa, Texas, and you are looking for electric Odessa car rentals, you are in luck. There are several electric cars available at the various car rental agencies located throughout Odessa. For example, Hertz offers the Chevrolet Spark for rent.
  • When coming to Odessa via plane, you can get your cheap Odessa car rentals from Midland International Airport. There are several rental companies operating a shop at the airport, including notable companies such as Enterprise and Hertz. Here you can choose from a wide range of vehicle types, including passenger vans, SUVs, compact sedans, and even a pick-up truck. The rental shops are within walking distance from the terminal, although you can still get a shuttle depending on the arrival time at the airport.
  • If you are looking for cheap car rentals in Odessa near the city center, you will be happy to know that Budget has a branch that is less than 0.5 miles away from the city center on North Grant Avenue. This Budget branch is just a 10-minute walk or a 2-minute drive from the center of downtown Odessa.
  • Driving car rentals in Odessa is fairly easy. You just have to obey the traffic lights and look out for road signs, and you will be home safe. While the majority of the drivers in the city are disciplined, there are a few bad apples that you should be wary of. Be extra careful when turning into intersections, especially at night, and always use your indicator lights to warn other road users.
  • If you are looking for Odessa car rentals so that you can drive freely around the city and its surrounding areas, you may want to check out some of the nearby attractions. In downtown Odessa, you’ll find plenty of museums and a replica of Stonehenge. If you’d like to venture out of the city for the day, Lubbock is a 2-hour drive north, and the border of New Mexico is just an hour away. If you are looking to go on a longer trip, the Dallas/Fort Worth area is about a 5-hour drive from Odessa. Just remember you will need to specify if you are dropping off your rental car at a different branch from where you picked it up.
  • While traffic may not be a serious problem in Odessa, the rush hours can sometimes get a little intense in specific areas. Andrews Highway, in particular, is notoriously known for having heavy traffic, with the intersections at Golf Course Road in Midland and 42nd Street in Odessa being the most affected. The roads can also be very slippery when it's wet, so please exercise some caution when driving in the rain. If you’re going to Odessa over the winter, you can ask your rental agency to fit winter tires so that you are able to navigate the slippery roads easier.
  • Book your rental car in Odessa at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Odessa are around -42% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Odessa?

    Pick-up trucks and compact SUVs ate the most common types of cars used in Odessa. This is mainly due to the relatively rough road surfaces, which have been affected by changing weather conditions throughout the year. An SUV is a good car to get if you’re looking for rental cars in Odessa since they can ride on the rough terrain without any problems. You can also get a pick-up truck, especially if you plan on going off-road to experience the great outdoors in this small Texan city.

  • What are the main roads in Odessa that I should be aware of before driving?

    Interstate 20 runs east-west through Odessa, so this is likely the road you will be using if you are planning to drive to the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Highways 450 and 191 run straight through the city, so many of the attractions in the downtown area will be along these roads. If you plan to drive to New Mexico, you will likely be using Highway 450 to exit the city of Odessa, as well.

  • What's the speed limit in Odessa?

    The speed limits in Odessa are primarily dependent on the type of road you're driving on. Highways and freeways will typically have a higher speed limit, while alleyways and roads in school zones will have a lower limit. The speed limit on alleyways and school zones is 15 mph, while residential zones have a limit of 30 mph. If you’re driving on interstate highways, you should observe a limit of 70 mph. You should also know that in areas where speed limits posted are different, the speed on the sign is the one that takes priority.

  • What do I need in order to pick up my Odessa car rental?

    If you are picking up a car rental in Odessa, you will need to have a valid driver’s license and a credit card in your name with sufficient funds. You must be at least 21 years old in order to rent a car in the state of Texas. If you are not a US citizen, you may also have to show an additional form of ID, such as a valid passport or an International Driver’s Permit. If your driver’s license is not in English, you will also need an official translation of your license.

  • Where are the best places to park in Odessa?

    While Odessa doesn’t have too many street parking spaces, there are plenty of garages and parking lots where you can leave your car rentals in Odessa. Windwood Town Center has a free parking lot off 42nd Street. Other than that, you can find free parking at North Lee Avenue Parking Garage and John Ben Shepperd Parkway Parking, among many other dedicated parking lots in the city.

Cons:

The customer service at the MAF terminal is abysmal. Literally, non existant. The young lady at the desk was so preoccupied with her report that she had little interest in helping me. If I had the opportunity to recommend a friend to use Alamo, i would first recommend them to walk, or maybe even ride a donkey before I suggested or even hinted at the possibility of using Alamo for a rental car. Suffice it to say, I couldn't be more disappointed in how I was treated as a customer.

Cons:

I didn't like that I was never even offered roadside assistance and had to pay $70 after waiting two hours for a jump start. I understood the $470 initial fee for out of state rental, but not being charged that entire $470 again for returning it in 31 hours instead of 24. I'll pay a competitor twice as much before dealing with this shiesty company again.
