Need to pick up your rental car after landing at DFW Airport? Fortunately for travelers, the Rental Car Center is just by the south entrance to the airport and is accessible via a 24/7 shuttle bus that can be found on the lower level of the terminal. As for Dallas Love Field Airport, the rental car desks are within the terminal and there is a shuttle bus that will take you to the rental car lots.
Pros: The rental car center at DFW is a somewhat longer than expected bus ride from your terminal, but busses seem to run on a regular basis. Once at the center, preferred customers are identified on a giant board with the space number marked and you just proceed to your car. Once you check out at the exit, you are on your way. Returns are just as easy, return to the center, get your receipt, and head toward the bus to your terminal.
Cons: The rental car company's name was not on the shuttle bus at the airport. I waited about 20 minutes, tried calling several times (no answer) so I finally had to take a Lyft for $12 to get there before they closed. I asked if their shuttle had stopped running and she told me no. Well, I never saw one... "Oh they say Love Connection on them." That is not the name of the company so how on earth would I ever know to get on that shuttle? They certainly never told me that.
Your rental experience really matters to us, so we show ratings and reviews from previous customers next to each listing. We ask customers to rate the supplier in seven key areas (including the condition of the car and the efficiency of counter staff), and their feedback will help you make an informed choice when you are deciding who to rent with. If you are keen to avoid hidden fuel charges, we recommend booking a car with a full-to-full fuel policy: as long as you refill the tank before dropping the car off, you won’t be faced with any refuelling costs.
Yes, some rental companies accept debit cards for reservations, though they may ask for additional identification and proof of insurance when you book. Even if you can pay with a debit card, some car rental locations require a credit card for the deposit. Be sure to check the terms and conditions. If you don't own a credit card, you may not be permitted to rent a car. Cash, prepaid cards, and gift cards are never accepted for reservations.
