How to Choose The Right Rental Car For Your Needs

When you are traveling and need to rent a car in Houston or another major city, it can be overwhelming to choose the right vehicle for your stay. With all the choices out there, it may be hard to decide on a car, truck, or van that will work for you. If you are planning an upcoming trip for work or fun, here are some tips to choosing a rental car that you will be happy with!

1. Your average route

Generally speaking, if you plan to use your rental car mostly in a large city, you will want to choose something small, compact, and easy to drive as well as park. However, if you want to get out of the city a bit, look for a larger vehicle with more room, and one that can handle rougher terrain.

2. Number of passengers

If you are traveling as a family, you will want to look at minvans or SUVs that allow everyone to spread out, as well as carry more cargo. When you're doing a quick business trip by yourself or an associate, you should be just fine with a sedan or sports car.

3. Time in the car

Cars with cushy seats, in-dash navigation, and luxury amenities may be worth the splurge if you know you are going to spend a long time in the car during your trip. However, if you know you'll only be driving less than an hour a day, save a few bucks and choose a less comfortable car.
