Austin Guide

Austin has been called the “Live Music Capital of the World.” Its music, natural beauty, and museums make it the cultural center of Texas.

Situated in the center of the city is the ornate Texas State Capital building. A tour can be taken of the impressive building, or one can wander down Congress Avenue and take in the rest of the capital of Texas.

Austin boasts historic buildings, museums, and galleries. By Congress Avenue and the Texas State Capital building are the LBJ Library, the art deco Texas Memorial Museum of Natural and Social History, the Greek Revival style Governor’s Mansion, and the Archer M Huntington Gallery which features modern art.

Many people are drawn to Austin’s lively nightlife and music on East 6th Street. Located here are the numerous bars with live bands that make Austin such a “hip town.” However, if you prefer something calmer, go to Zilker Park. The park is home to a botanical garden, hiking and biking trails, and a sculpture garden. It also contains the entrance to the Barton Springs natural swimming pool and the Zilker Nature Preserve.

Near Austin and easily reachable by car is the National Wildflower Research Center, containing every type of wildflower in Texas. West of Austin is the stunning Texas hill country with its imposing rock formations and rugged natural beauty. The hill country also contains an authentic cowboy town, Fredericksburg, complete with a dude ranch and the Cowboy Artists of America Museum.

Numerous daily flights are available between the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and the airports in Houston and Dallas, from which there are direct flights to almost all major American cities and many cities around the world. Austin is also served by Amtrak rail, through which you can link to most of the nation.

The major suburbs in Austin are: Abercrombie, Montopolis, Pershing, Pleasant Hill, Smoot, Sunset Valley, Rollingwood and Vinson.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
