If you are traveling in Texas, one of the best ways to get around is with auto rentals from Ability Rent A Car. To ensure that the rental process goes smoothly, you should make reservations for your Houston auto rental in advance. Making reservations a week in advance is sufficient, but you may want to lock in your reservation earlier if you plan on visiting Houston around major holidays.

Making advanced reservations offers these benefits:

Many people choose not to purchase rental car insurance on the basis that their own personal vehicle insurance offers rental car coverage. While some insurance policies do cover rental cars, not all offer this valuable coverage. Car insurance plans with a high deductible or low payout cap may not cover all of the costs associated with a collision in a rental car.

Rental car insurance provides another exclusive benefit. If an accident does occur, it will not reflect on your own personal insurance policy, in most cases. This can prevent your premiums from increasing if you are involved in a collision.

Avoid additional or unexpected fees when returning your Houston auto rental by thoroughly reviewing the rental agreement. Items that may incur extra fees include:

  • Exceeding mileage limits.
  • Additional drivers needed.
  • Restricted drivers due to age (18-24 years).
  • Tolls.

Be sure to inspect the rental vehicle before leaving the rental parking lot. Look it over carefully for any pre-existing damage such as scratches, dents, or dings. This damage needs to be documented so you don’t end up paying for damage you did not incur. It may also be helpful to take date-marked photos with a smartphone if you do happen to notice any existing damage.
