KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Richardson

  • Rent a car During Your stay in Richardson and get an opportunity to explore the City and its environs within Texas easily. Car Rentals in Richardson can equip you with a reliable car that can aid your movement throughout the City. With two-thirds of the City being in Dallas, about 18.2 square miles, and a third of its northern side being in Collin, which is approximately 9.2 square miles, you can easily access and explore these areas by car.
  • Get to one of the cheap car rentals in Richardson and enjoy exploring Richardson. Roads here often prove challenging due to the high volume of traffic. U.S. 75 at I-635 – otherwise known as the High Five interchange – near Richardson’s southern border is a particularly popular intersection and leads to considerable congestion. Furthermore, Richardson’s strategic location close to many freeways adds to the problem by bringing additional vehicles into the area. This calls for drivers to exercise patience during traffic build-up, especially during morning hours (7 am to 8 am) and evening (6 pm to 7 pm). At peak hours, people from work or students from schools are on the road, so paying close attention to pedestrian crossing sections is highly recommended.
  • The Dallas airport contains a car rental that offers a variety of cars for your preference. You can access these varieties from the airport terminals through the Dallas Area Rapid Transit that operates to and from the airport every 30min. Once at the airport, you can book car rentals in Richardson through KAYAK, which provides a wide variety of car collections. You can also get other Richardson Car Rentals around the airport, including DFW car Rental Returns, National Car Rental, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and Dollar Car Rental.
  • Richardson is strategically located near three major freeways, making it easily accessible from anywhere in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. You can use the 30-mile SH190/Bush Turnpike, a 6-lane, limited-access tollway to access Northern Richardson. The U.S. 75/North Central Expressway divides Richardson into north and south, stretching from Dallas. Then the I-635/LBJ is a partial loop that connects Richardson with Dallas at the south. The proximity to these highways also makes it a convenient location for exploring the city and far. In addition, several arterial roads nearby provide additional access to Richardson’s Core District.
  • Richardson has some narrow streets that require you to be keen while driving through the streets. With a smaller population, you may find very few occasions of crowded pedestrians on the roadsides. However, even if the number of pedestrians is low, you need to be keen, especially when driving on these streets, because, in some cases, some pedestrians attempt to cross roads without even minding the roadsides, which may lead to an accident.
  • If you choose to rent an electric vehicle from one of the cheap car rentals in Richardson, you will need to recharge it. Luckily, there are over 15 public charging stations in the city and along the major highways.  So whether you're exploring the city or you plan to travel further from the town, you're sure your rental car will get enough charge to cover the journey. It’s worth noting that you may have to pay to get your EV recharged; however, some charging stations are completely free of charge.
  • Driving through the highways of Richardson can sometimes be hectic, especially during rush hours. You may be in a hurry to get somewhere, or ideally, you want to get home after a long day at work, and you end up stuck in traffic congestion that delays you for hours. Being in the city, you need to note the roads frequently under traffic to avoid them.To achieve this possibility, you can use the Richardson travel map that guides you on the status of the highways that are ahead of you.
  • Book your rental car in Richardson at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Richardson are around 2% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Cons:

Reservation was for 12pm. Got a call at 12:02pm that the truck I had reserved had body damage and couldn't be rented. No resolution on the phone call. I arrived at the rental location around 1pm and the person at the desk explained that there were no trucks. I asked if he had tried to find one at another Hertz location and he said that last time he tried doing that for a customer he got yelled at by his manager. He eventually called his manager and got permission to call others. He tried 2 with no luck and told me that was all he could do. I will never use Hertz again.

Cons:

Reserved a small SUV and when we got there all they had left on the lot was ONE a compact car. We were driving 900 miles to rent a truck and ,over belongings across the country. They attempted to find us another car locally but contractually couldn't call the airport because they didn't have reciprocal agreements with them. I was able to find a replacement with my cell phone so we left without the rental and got another at the airport - from Enterprise.

The hertz rental car business at this location is grossly understaffed. Pickup and drop off times too way too long since there are only 1-2 people to work both. This hertz location also housed hertz Uber, which apparently is a separate business from the hertz car rental. The hertz Uber employees would not help. Hertz corporate needs to add staffing.
