Car rental Houston, TX

New frontiers
in Houston

As one of the most diverse cities in the country, Houston has a lot to offer on many fronts, including fantastic food from every corner of the world, enthralling museums, and beautiful outdoor spaces where you can do everything — enjoy a movie or settle into an al fresco reading room.

Make your way through one of the most exciting cities in Texas in your Houston airport car rental, and also bask in the scenery of the nearby Gulf of Mexico and Texas Hill Country.

Houston favorites

Houston is chock full of well designed green spaces and truly mind-blowing eats, so take your Houston car rental out to sample these gems.

Buffalo Bayou Park

This 160-acre park is an impressive respite from the bustling city, and is a beautiful place to rent boats or bikes. You can also tour and see shows in the strange, awesome underground cistern.

Chow down on crawfish

Crawfish is no joke in this Gulf-side town. You can’t go wrong with the classic table-top spread with corn cobs, but don’t miss the spicy Viet-Cajun style unique to Houston.

Space Center Houston

At the Space Center, you can not only see a large collection of moon rocks and spaceship exhibits, you can also tour NASA facilities where astronauts train.

Easiest & best Turo experience I’ve had in Houston to date. Simple pick up and drop off. Great, clean car. Will rent again.

Needed a car without getting fleeced by the big name car rental companies and Vlad came through with the Optima. Excellent ride and definitely appreciate it.

Vlad was able to make my first Turo experience a pleasant. He communicated very well from beginning to the end. The car was in great shape and cleaner compared to the regular car rental empires! Kudos Vlad!

Skip the rental car counter

Hit the road

Book your Houston car rental on Turo and get out of town to hit the hills, the beach, and other awesome Texas cities.


Only an hour out of the city in your Houston car rental, Galveston is the hot beach spot where locals revel in long seaside days with great BBQ, and even horseback riding.


Known for its rocking live music scene, it’s worth the three-hour drive in your Houston car rental to get your dose of Austin weird, and some killer swimming holes.

Brazos Bend State Park

In less than an hour in your Houston car rental, you can be hiking or biking in nature at this state park. It’s also home to an observatory where you can stargaze on clear nights.

Getting this car was a unique experience. For the first time I got a car that I truly liked, one that is going to be very successful in the car rental business. Most importantly I got this car for a fee that’s half the price for a typical car rental.

My trip was awesome! Because I’m younger it was hard to find a car rental place that would rent to me. Ziya dropped the car off and picked it back up I drove the car for 5 days and only filled the tank once! I will absolutely drive Ziya’s car again in the future.

Honestly at first I was skeptical about renting a car from any service other than the big car rental companies. Mr. Papa erased that skepticism. It is a great experience working with him, and I will continue to use his services from here on out. Highly recommend his vehicles. There are many choices. This VW golf was absolutely perfect

Tarif is polite, understanding and accommodating. His rental cars are operate smoothly and you almost don't want to give it back lol He made rental process both quick and seamless, and had no problem with the extended trip. His polite professionalism really helped me out alot. I will be renting from again when need be.

Lorenzo made me never want to rent at a Enterprise Car rental or any other rental place again. He is very pleasant and I needed to extend last minute and he accepted my extension within 2 minutes. His pickup location is in the heart of the city, which is a HUGE plus. This was my first Turo rental so he set the standards high. When I let him know I was having problems with app before check in he helped me get to the pick up location. He was great. In week I may be renting from him again, unless of course you have read this review and have booked by then😁... Thanks Lorenzo!!!!! You were great!

Amin was easy to contact, worked with me to get the vehicle. I don't think this booking could have been easier. As a Navy Vet, I've rented a lot of vehicles through the years. By far the best car rental experience.

It was a big pleasure to rent a car with Ziya. He delivered the car in advance before the trip started in order to check everything. During my long rental period he was servicing car if needed (I got a flat tire) so he replaced it at the time when i needed.

The one and only for Houston luxury rentals. I’ll be helping him in anyway I can to get the word out about his fleet. He had his E 300 ready same day and communicated the entire Time. His area is safe and clean and I can leave my company cars in his area. He’s my only rental specialist any time I’m in Houston. If you need a business class or sports car same day, clean gassed and ready, get Salman.

My name is Vancleve Bonner, I had to come to Houston Texas to pick up my son Oliver Bonner and needed a affordable car. Dioni Verango reaches out to me and said consider certified Luxury Autos. We have luxury autos for a good price. I then went to the Instagram page and seen a selection of cars. Dioni recommended the 640I BMW. I said ok and decided to try it. Bruce Bray then reaches out to me as a rep, answered every question I had and brought the car to me on time, clean with great energy, and customer service. I recommend Certified Luxury Autos as the number one rental company in Houston Texas and Houston surrounding counties.

Papa is incredible individual and a superb business owner, one that puts his customers above all even if it means to losing some dollars on the way. I’m a very frequent traveler I travel about once a month on business and have met a lot different traveling professional. By far Papa was one of my favorite, he really cares all along the trip and even when I ended it and got home he checked in :) to see I arrived home ok. I came to the airport to Rent-A-Car from Papa I ended up getting a much NICER car complements of Mr. Papa :) The pick up drop off and vehicle were immaculate nothing short than perfect are. Throughout always checking in making sure I found everything in the car fits my needs a true professional and one that has a business owner I strive to be like. I will be back without a doubt if I am ever in the Houston area there’s only one place I’m going to rent a car and I was by Mr. Papa. HE GAINED ME AS A COSTEMER / FRIEND FOR LIFE :).. Thanks for everything PAPA

This car is stunningly beautiful and a head turner. I rented this AMG C63S (brand new) from Giuseppe for a business meeting and to visit family in the Houston area. Giuseppe had great communication and was very helpful with anything I needed. The car was a blast to rent and if I am in Houston again, I know what car I'm renting. I rent cars for work often (5-6 cars a month) and this was by far the best experience I have had with a rental. Thanks Giuseppe!

Autohaus was an excellent host- he made pick-up and drop-off a breeze, adapted well to our schedule change, and was very responsive to messages. Even when our initial car was taken out of commission before the trip, he helped coordinate a replacement. I highly recommend Autohaus for car rentals.

Kristian was nothing short of amazing. I even called him at 3:30am to pick up the vehicle earlier . The return was suppose to be for 4:45am and he went out of his way to come earlier for my convenience because I was leaving Houston to go back home to Canada. I would recommend you do business with Kristian %100. I had no regrets in renting his car for the weekend. The Mercedes fulfilled my dream car. Thank you again for such an amazing weekend. I truly appreciate doing business with Kristian.

Big thanks to Bryan. Turo allowed me to be able to afford to have a proper Texas road trip in an American muscle car. The rental companies have a poor range and inferior booking tools as well as being more expensive. It was a breeze with Bryan and Turo and I am looking forward to having the chance again. New Zealand still needs more cars to catch up with the U S.

Rates are better than dealing with rentals at the airport. It is very convenient dealing because all I had to do was walk out to pickup and there was my rental.

Patricia A. - January 3, 2020
I have rented through Turo many times and this was the best experience I have had. The car is parked at the airport and is unlocked remotely. This means I didn’t have to text back and forth with someone to find them. I also didn’t have to rush because someone was waiting on me. I was able to take my time loading the car, not just toss my gear in and take off because someone was yelling at me to move it. So easy. The car was nice and in great shape. Reasonably priced. I highly recommend renting from this company!
Scott S. - December 29, 2019
Mercedes-benz C-Class 2019
First off, WOW. This AMG C63S is a remarkable example of German engineering. Drop it into Sport+ or Race settings and you'll see why many people believe that AMG makes one of, if not THE best sounding V8 on the market. It also has a great amount of power and torque, making it an incredibly fun driving experience. This thing would murder its BMW and Audi peers. Now for the host, Giuseppe; Every message I sent was promptly and courteously answered, and every aspect of the rental went as smoothly as you would hope. Pick up and drop off was a breeze, and the host was always available to help. I will definitely enjoy renting from Giuseppe again.....and again. A true 5 star experience from beginning to end.

Hands down best car rental experience I've ever had and it had nothing to do with the vehicle that I rented but it had all to do with the person renting out the vehicle. Very down to earth, extremely knowledgable when it comes to cars and always tried to make the experience convenient for me. TRUE CUSTOMER SERVICE. Which seems to be a lost art nowadays. Will DEFINITELY be doing business with them again.

First time and I loved it! Never using airport car rental when traveling again! I felt like I borrowed a family member’s car! Zohrin was such a pleasure and helped explain the process. I felt bad because I had an early 5am flight but he was right there!

Everything went smoothly. Ziya was responsive and helpful. The Hyundai Accent is by no means a luxury car, the suspension was a little rough on Houston's pot-holedroads, but it was in good shape, and clean. I would work with Ziya again.

We will definitely be renting again from Carlos, 5 STARS!!

Best Houston driving roads

Farm-to-Market 149

Head north to Montgomery to catch FM 149, which shoots your Houston car rental through the Sam Houston Forest for decent twisties until you’re dropped into the swooping curves of FM 3090.

Highway 59 to Victoria

For views of the truly Texan wide-open range, head west in your Houston car rental and take in the scenic rolling prairies that lead into the historic downtown Victoria.

Highway 288

Head south in your Houston car rental to take this scenic road all the way to the coast, or stop off at Brazos Bend State Park for a does of wildlife and glassy lakes.
