Explore Houston

The sprawling metropolitan area has much to offer its visitors, including beautiful parks, museums, and a variety of excellent day trips. Most areas of interest are within a few miles of the city centre.

The Museum District is sandwiched between Hermann Park and Hwy 59 southwest of downtown. The Museum of Fine Arts (1900) is the oldest art museum in Texas, featuring a large collection of American Modernists, Texan Postmodernists and French Impressionists. The Contemporary Arts Museum presents 10 or more temporary shows a year and the Holocaust Museum is an excellent though sobering memorial.

At Hermann Park, Houston Zoological Gardens features gorillas, tropical birds, lions, bats and an adjoining aquarium. The Museum of Natural Science is great for kids. Inside, the Cockrell Butterfly Center is a large three-story dome where you can wander about among thousands of live butterflies.

Cycling is a popular activity along Houston's numerous park trails, with such flat, tarmaced areas, pedaling is easy and relaxing . The open-air Alkek Velodrome facility is in Cullen Park, 20 miles west of downtown.

Transport

By air
Bush Intercontinental Airport is Houston’s major airport and services by major domestic and international airlines, with trans-Atlantic flights, as well as routes to Caribbean and central/South American destinations. The airport is well serviced with shuttles, buses and limos to the city centre, though buses are a preferable and a more reliable option. Car rental desks at the airport include Advantage, Budget, Alamo, Hertz, National, Thrifty, Avis and Dollar. Book in advance online for cheaper prices and a better selection of cars.

George William P Hobby Airport is a secondary airport served by discount carrier Southwest Airlines. Bus service to Hobby Airport is generally more reliable.

By train
The Amtrak rail service to Houston is very limited and the ‘Sunset Limited’ arrives thrice a week from Los Angeles to New Orleans and on to Orlando (and return). It’s often late however.

By bus
Greyhound is the major bus carrier in the US. It’s the cheapest but least comfortable means of travel, especially in Texas where large distances are involved.

By car
By far the best way to get around, and in and out, Houston is with a car. As a city built around the car, Houston has good highways radiating in all directions. Car rentals are available from numerous depots in downtown Houston. Search and compare quotes online right here and plan your trip carefully.

Frequently asked questions

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.
