Thrifty Houston Airport
George Bush Intercontinental Airport is located approximately 23 miles, or 37km from downtown Houston, and is the largest airport in the state of Texas - even larger than the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Houston’s airport is also rated as the tenth busiest in North America, and the sixth busiest in the world for aircraft movements. It has been allocated the official IATA code of IAH. Although many buses, as well as taxis, provide ground transportation, passengers often prefer to rent a car, from one of the Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport car hire companies such as Thrifty. Vehicles of high quality can be hired from Thrifty, and competitive car rental rates are offered to all airport customers.
Thrifty’s car rental counters are found at the Houston Rental Car Centre, which is a few kilometres from the airport terminals. However, the Rental Car Centre is easy to reach, as shuttle buses are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. The shuttles are white and maroon in colour, and large enough to accommodate a reasonable number of passengers and their baggage items. They are also able to transport passengers with reduced mobility challenges. Arriving passengers are advised to follow the ‘Rental Car Shuttle’ signs from their terminal’s arrival area in order to find the departure area of the shuttles. In general, all of Houston Airport’s facilities and services are well indicated. The trip by shuttle to the airport Car Rental Centre will take less than five minutes.
The George Bush Continental Airport Car Rental Centre was opened in 2003, in order to level the playing fields for all car hire companies. It also provided more space within the airport terminals for other services and concessionaries, and reduced traffic on the roadways. Although passengers may find it more convenient when the car rental counters are within the terminal buildings, there are few complaints regarding the shuttle services of the airport, and the distance of the Car Rental Centre. The centre also provides adequate space for all vehicles for hire, and the parking area is undercover within walking distance of the rental counters. Thrifty George Bush Intercontinental Airport is open 24-hours a day, and from Monday to Sunday. Car rental reservations are best made online, in advance of your arrival at the airport.
Thrifty’s cars come from a variety of manufacturers and are considered to be in excellent mechanical condition. They are also available in various sizes, and are therefore suitable for all occasions and any number of travellers. Economy cars such as the Chevrolet Aveo are smaller in size, but come with the cheapest car rental rates. They are also light on fuel and easy to drive. The Ford Focus in the Compact category is another popular car to rent, and the Dodge Avenger is an example of Thrifty’s Midsize vehicles. Standard and Fullsize cars are a little larger, and similar to the Ford Fusion and Ford Taurus. An interesting option from Thrifty is their Wild Card category, which offers Compact or larger sized vehicles. The customer will not know the car he/she will be driving, as it will be chosen by the Thrifty rental car company, however, good value for money is guaranteed, as lower rates than usual will be charged, regardless if the vehicle is an SUV or even a Minivan.
Some of Thrifty’s SUVs available from George Bush Intercontinental Airport include the Ford Escape, Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban, and Minivans are similar to the Dodge Caravan. Minivans and large SUVs can seat up to seven passengers. Thrifty one way hire services are available to customers who would rather not return their vehicle to the George Bush Intercontinental Airport. One way hires are convenient when the renter will be leaving Texas from another airport, or when the customer is planning to travel more extensively. Hired cars can usually be driven to all parts of Texas, and into the neighbouring states of Texas. It is, however, best to find out from Thrifty to where the hire car may be driven if a longer journey is planned as cross-border rentals are often not permitted. One way hires could be more expensive than an ordinary rental, and may only be available for certain vehicle categories.
Along with your vehicle from Thrifty, don’t forget to include any extra items of equipment you will require. Child seats are available in various sizes (small for infants and toddlers and larger for young children) and a satellite navigation system could be of a great benefit, especially if you are not familiar with roads of Houston, and Texas in general. Navigation systems and child seats cost money to hire, but Thrifty hand controls for disabled drivers are free of charge. They can only be used by persons with a lower limb disability, and can be used on various types of automatic cars hired from George Bush Intercontinental Airport. Hand controls require an advanced reservation, as they will need to be fitted to the vehicle prior to your arrival.
Thrifty’s customers will need to be 21 years of age or older, and should be in possession of a valid drivers license and major credit card. Foreign drivers may require other documents to support their local license, such as a passport or International Driving Permit. Any customer could also belong to the Thrifty Blue Chip Program and enjoy priority service for faster rentals, reservations and returns. Blue Chip members can also earn free days of car hire with the Thrifty Blue Chip Rewards Program. Thrifty allows rentals for longer periods of time as well, with their Multi-Month Rental Program. Cars can be hired for up to eleven months, and do not need to be returned until the rental contract has expired. Thrifty at George Bush Intercontinental Airport will be able to provide further details regarding their car rental services.
