National Houston Airport
George Bush Intercontinental Airport, with the IATA code of IAH, is a North American airport in the state of Texas. It is Houston’s largest airport, the busiest airport in the state of Texas and the tenth busiest airport in North America in terms of passenger traffic. The airport is located approximately 23 miles, or 37km north of downtown Houston. There is a new consolidated rental car facility for the car hire companies of the airport, which include National George Bush Intercontinental Airport. National is a respected car hire firm in many countries of the world, and is well known to provide services that are ideal for airport business travellers.
The car hire company of National was founded in 1947, and is considered as a premium and internationally recognized brand that focuses on the needs of the frequent airport business traveller. National therefore has over sixty years of experience in the car hire industry, and currently have offices throughout the United States of America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Latin America, Asia and the Pacific Rim. During their years of service National has helped to pioneer the corporate-account business, and was also the first car hire company to introduce a comprehensive frequent renter program. This program was launched in 1987, and goes by the name of Emerald Club. Today, a large number of National customers belong to Emerald Club, and they enjoy a range of exclusive benefits that help to save time and money. ‘Car Choice’ is a special favourite, as it allows the customer to quickly choose their own vehicles without the need for any lengthy paperwork. National has also been the ‘official car rental company’ of the PGA TOUR and Champions Tour since 1994, and is part of a global strategic alliance with Europcar. These two companies form the largest car rental network in the world.
The George Bush Intercontinental Airport car hire companies are not found within one of the five terminals, but to the east of John F. Kennedy Boulevard. The companies are not within walking distance of the arrival areas, therefore there are shuttles available that transport passengers between the airport terminals and the consolidated car rental facility. The facility was opened in 2003, and has proven to be a successful and efficient establishment. All the car hire companies, including National, are found on the same level of the complex, and the rented cars are parked nearby in an undercover parking garage that is within walking distance of the rental counters. Arriving passengers should follow the ‘Rental Car Shuttle’ signage in order to locate the shuttles, which are white and maroon in colour. At Houston Airport, a common bus system is used, in order to reduce traffic on the airport roadways. This means that passengers hiring a car from any of the car hire companies will all travel on the same shuttle.
George Bush Intercontinental Airport and its car rental facility are accessible to passengers with reduced mobility. The shuttles for transport are equipped to facilitate a person with disabilities, and there are pavement ramps and accessible toilets in all parts of the airport and its buildings. National hand controls for disabled drivers can even be requested, which allow a person with a lower limb disability to drive a car. From George Bush Intercontinental Airport, hand controls are free of charge, but will require an advanced reservation, at least two days prior to your arrival. The device will need to be fitted to the vehicle, and not all vehicles can be used.
National and the several other George Bush Intercontinental Airport car rental companies offer their customers a wide range of vehicles for hire. National’s are all in good mechanical condition, and are only of the latest models. The cars hired are mostly divided into various car groups, for example, Economy, Compact, Midsize, Standard, Fullsize, Premium, SUV and Minivan. The SUVs are often a popular choice of vehicle in the United States of America, and from National, include the Ford Escape - Midsize SUV, the Jeep Grand Cherokee – a Standard SUV, the Chevrolet Tahoe – a Fullsize SUV, the Chevrolet Suburban – a Premium SUV and the Lincoln Navigator – a Luxury SUV. Many SUVs come with cruise control, power steering, air bags, CD players and air conditioning, and the larger vehicles can seat up to seven passengers. Seven is ideal for the Dodge Grand Caravan as well, from the Minivan category, and up to eight can be seated in the Toyota Sienna. National’s largest vehicle for hire is similar to the Chevrolet Express, with space for fifteen people.
Customers who require an ordinary vehicle of a smaller size can hire the Chevrolet Aveo from the Economy category, the Nissan Versa from the Compact category, the Toyota Corolla from the Midsize category or the Ford Fusion from the Standard Category. They all have automatic transmissions (as do most cars for hire in the United States), air conditioning and AM/FM stereo and CD. Luxury and Premium cars are also available from National, and are ideal for prestigious business events. They include the Toyota Avalon, the Lincoln MKS and the Cadillac DTS.
Most vehicles for hire can be arranged as a National one way hire, and child seats and satellite navigation systems can be requested for the vehicle. All these services will cost a few extra dollars per day of hire, or per rental contract. A satellite navigation system can be extremely useful to drivers in Texas, as the roads in the city and the surrounding areas are not always easy to navigate. From George Bush Intercontinental Airport, one way hire services are best for customers who are not returning to the rental car facility, but who would prefer to drop off their vehicle at another location. Hire cars can usually be driven to all nearby states. Contact National at George Bush Intercontinental Airport for further car rental information.
