Budget Houston Airport
The Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport is a large establishment in the United States, and in the state of Texas. It serves the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown Metropolitan area, the fifth largest of metropolitan areas in the U.S, and is named after the 41st president of the country, George H.W. Bush.. The airport can also be referred to as the Houston Airport, or by its code of IAH. For arriving passengers there are many facilities and options for ground transport, including several car hire companies, such as Budget George Bush Intercontinental Airport. Budget is loved by many for their ‘budget’ car rental rates, their vehicles of a high quality and their professional customer service.
The large airport of Houston handles around forty million passengers per year from five terminal buildings named as the Terminals A, B, C, D and E. A passenger’s terminal of arrival will depend on the origin of their flight and the airline company with which they are flying. For example, all United Airline international flights arrive at Terminal E, all other international flights arrive at Terminal D, and Terminal A is used for all non-United domestic flights. The airport is a major hub for United Airlines, therefore much of the airport buildings are taken up by their services. Arriving passengers can transfer between terminals by the inter-terminal underground train. This train also connects the terminal to the Marriott on-site airport hotel. The George Bush Intercontinental Airport car hire companies are found at a separate location to the airport, in a new consolidated rental car facility.
The Houston Airport Rental Car facility, with the offices of Budget, is found to the east of John F. Kennedy Boulevard, and is reached by shuttle buses. The journey by bus from the terminals to the car hire companies is about five minutes, and free of charge. Passengers mostly find the white and maroon airport shuttles to be comfortable and convenient, as well as easy to locate, as there are signs in all the arrival areas that indicate ‘Car Rental Shuttle’. The buses are frequently available, twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week. As an extra benefit, the common bus system used by all the car hire companies helps to reduce traffic on the airport roads. The shuttle buses for Budget are accessible to disabled passengers and have room for luggage items.
Although the city of Houston has excellent public transportation, a rented car is considered as best for exploring the area. From the airport, Houston is easily reached by travelling the I-45 or the Highway 59, and is about a 23 mile or 37km journey (to downtown Houston). The I-45 is the road that also leads north towards the large cities of Dallas and Fort Worth. South of the city, the I-45 heads towards Galveston along the shoreline, while the I-10 heads east to Port Arthur, Lake Charles and Lafayette. Within the city, a rented car can be used to visit the numerous tourist attractions available, or to travel between business activities. Several parking lots can be found in the downtown area, including those along Capitol Street, Fannin Street, Smith Street, Texas Street, Milam Street and Walker Street.
Budget’s cars are ideal for leisure or business renters, and come in a range of sizes. The smaller cars of the company are similar to the Hyundai Accent and Ford Focus, medium-sized cars include the Dodge Avenger, Ford Fusion, Chevy Impala and Ford Escape, an SUV with room for five people and large rental cars are considered as similar to the Ford Edge, Mercury Grand Marquis and Lincoln Town Car. The last two mentioned are found in the Premium and Luxury car categories. The George Bush Intercontinental Airport car rental companies also have high occupancy vehicles for hire. Ideal for seven are the Ford Expedition, Ford Explorer and Dodge Caravan, and ideal for eight is the Ford Expedition EL. Budget’s largest rental is the Ford Econoline, with room for twelve passengers.
Although most Budget vehicles are hired by category, some can be requested by their specific makes and models. These cars are Budget’s Street Fleet models, and may include the Chevy Corvette, Ford Mustang, Toyota Prius Hybrid, Mitsubishi Eclipse Coupe, Volvo C70, BMW 328, BMW X3, Jeep Wrangler, Lincoln Navigator, Fiat 500 and Ford F150 Supercab. Customers can make enquiries regarding Budget’s ‘green’ vehicles as well, which are environmentally friendly cars that are light on fuel. Budget’s Street Fleet models and ‘green’ cars can be hired online, preferably in advance. It is also recommended to hire additional items of equipment in advance, such as child seats and satellite navigation systems. Budget hand controls for disabled drivers require an early reservation as well, and are free of charge. At the George Bush Intercontinental Airport, hand control equipment is used on certain types of automatic vehicles and operates the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle.
Budget one way hires are suggested to customers who do not wish to return to Houston and/or the George Bush Intercontinental Airport. One way hires may be collected from the airport, but then returned to a rental location in another city of Texas, or even to a city in one of the neighbouring states. Rental cars are not usually permitted to travel too far, or to be driven into Canada or Mexico. Houston Airport is one of the Budget Fastbreak Choice rental locations, and therefore all members of the Fastbreak program will enjoy exclusive benefits such as priority counter service.
