KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Plano

  • Plano has driving restrictions for drivers who are below the age of 18. If you are driving cheap car rentals in Plano and are below the age of 18, you have to have a provisional license. With this license, you are not allowed to drive between midnight and 5 AM. The only exception is if you are driving for employment, medical emergencies, or participating in school-related activities. Only these are allowed to drive during those hours.
  • It is against the traffic laws to use any mobile device that is not hands-free when driving Plano car rentals. This means you cannot answer a call, read a text, check email, or even make a video while driving in Plano. Moreover, you cannot use a mobile device that is not hands-free while sitting at a red light. You must safely drive to the side and park your car to use your phone. Violating this law attracts a fine of about 200 Dollars that can be paid directly by you or charged to your credit card through the car rental company.
  • Plano follows only one law regarding making turns on roads, especially U-turns. Always make sure you are visible within 500 feet of oncoming traffic. Other than this, you are generally allowed to make a U-turn. Regarding the freeways in Plano, you need to know that entry is regulated through the use of ramp-metering signals. Look for the “Ramp Metered when Flashing” sign when driving Plano car rentals. If you cannot spot it on the freeway, look for a sign that flashes a yellow warning light. One vehicle is permitted to join the freeway when this sign flashes a green light. You are always supposed to yield to drivers getting on or off a freeway ramp.
  • A rental car is the most comfortable, cost-effective way of exploring not only the city of Plano, but also other areas of Dallas, as well as other major attractions in Texas. With a car, you can explore freely Plano’s main points of interest, such as the Heritage Farmstead Museum, as well as embark on longer road trips outside the city. The second biggest canyon in the U.S., the Palo Duro Canyon, is about 270 miles south of Dallas and is the perfect place to visit with a car.
  • The two airports near Plano are Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Dallas Love Field (DAL). At DFW, rental car agencies are situated in the Rental Car Center, which is near the airport’s south entrance and is open 24 hours, with free transfers running every 10-15 minutes from the terminal’s lower level. At DAL, the car rental desks can be found inside the terminal’s lower level, just after the Baggage Claim area, with companies providing a shuttle to the parking lot.
  • The main thing you have to know about driving in Plano is that drivers are slightly reckless. Always drive with caution and within the speed limits, even if that means being honked at. Drivers typically yield to larger vehicles, especially trucks. The summer weather is quite harsh as temperatures rise exponentially, so always book a car with air conditioning if you’re heading there during that season.
  • Although traffic is manageable on some side streets in Plano, even during rush hour, the freeways surrounding Dallas tend to get pretty packed during peak hour. Avoid driving between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., and then again in the evening between 3:30 pm and 7:30 p.m. if you don’t want to add extra time to your travels. Lots of people commute from Plano to Dallas and vice-versa through the George Bush Turnpike, so expect some traffic jams there.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Plano for C$ 43 or less
  • Book your rental car in Plano at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Plano are around 23% cheaper than other car types, on average

Could have had a later closing time on a Sunday. Closed at noon and it was a little crowded at closing. Only one person could rent out vehicles. The other two had yet to be allowed to do so. But overall very pleased with the experience.

When I pick up the car they told me that I could request a drop off service to take me back to my work, they even told me about the 5 miles radio policy , then the day I drop off the car I asked for it and they didn't want to take me back to my work place even after I reminded them about our previous conversation, I had to call an uber. My work it's a 4.5 miles, what I didn't like is that they just said they were busy a d dismiss me with out even try to help me.

Pros:

Got what we asked for - a van, preferably the Chrysler Town and Country or Dodge Caravan (it was the Dodge). Vehicle was in okay shape and service was acceptable.

Cons:

The rate changed from what was quoted ($444 for 6 days) to what we were charged ($648), both before tax. I have taken up this issue with Avis customer service. VERY disappointed in that.

Cons:

We reserved a 7 passenger mini van as we had 7 passengers plus luggage for a family trip. When we arrived we were told no minivans were available (ummm isn’t that the point of a reservation???). We were given an arcadia with a “third row” we had to find out when we went to load up it had 6 seat belts. Called 8 different times and finally was told they would trade us out for a 7 passenger Ford Flex. When we came back to exchange, we were told the flex was gone, but we could have a 7 passenger Chevy, which had enough seat belts and room for luggage... That would have been fine, but he went to ring it up and it had a recall, so wouldn’t let us have it. They also had 3 minivans on site they “couldn’t rent”. We ended up having to squish a 3rd person illegally in the backseat without a seatbelt and terrible ride experience. If you can not honor your rental, don’t take reservations. Completely unacceptable.

I had to pickup a rental on short notice. I found a vehicle using Kayak and I was referred to Hertz car rental. I found a $70 car rental for 2 days and with tax and fees + insurance it ended up being around $160. Once I returned the vehicle at the airport (Dallas Love field), the Hertz staff was quick and very adamant about charging me for damage to the vehicle that was already documented prior to renting the vehicle… I had to repeatedly show him that the damage was documented by Hertz through the pre-vehicle check by another Hertz employee. After a few minutes he finally gave up. But he did make sure to charge me the fuel fee because the tank wasn’t exactly at the same fuel level when rented. I understand to be charged if I were to leave the fuel tank on empty, but after fueling the vehicle and still having to drive to the airport from the gas station I was bound to use the 7 miles, forcing it to be under what I originally picked it up with. I hope Hertz or Kayak can help this frustrating situation. A 2 day $160 rental turned into $211 rather quickly. Very upsetting experience.

EVEN THOUGH I HAD A CONFIRMATION OF MY CAR RENTAL WHICH WAS LOWER THRU KAYAK THAN HERTZ, I ARRIVED TO PICK UP MY CAR AND THEY STATED THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE ANY AT THAT LOCATION. THE PERSON AT THE COUNTER CALLED (NOT SURE WHO) AND STATED THAT HERTZ AT ANOTHER LOCATION WOULD RENT THE CAR TO ME ONLY IF I AGREED TO PAY $300 MORE THAN THE ECONOMIC CAR CONFIRMATION.

Mar. 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Customer service was helpful. However it took asking for a supervisor to assist me. They did compete me for their mistake.

Cons:

We reserved and prepaid for our car a month in advance. Got a call the day before we were supposed to go pickup the car (5 min before they closed for the day) to tell us that they didn’t have a car for us, but to call back tomorrow morning at 8 am. Long story short, after 3 hours of calling and begging we were able to get a car at a different location. I was told to just cancel the reservation and try again. Called the hertz corporate office and spoke to their customer service and a supervisor and they finally found us a car. In the end it worked out but it was a very stressful day We picked up the car at 5pm ( we were supposed to pick it up at 12) and left for our trip.
