And in neighboring Fort Worth, 30 miles away and closing, you'll find historical buildings, the infamous Stockyards, and the hundred-years-young Sundance Square. In order to take full advantage of all the area has to offer, getting a rental car is the way to go. Whether you choose to pick up your rental car at the airport or from one of the many car rental companies in Dallas, you will find some useful information below to help you get the right rental car for the right price.


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.
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.
Yes, you must be an insured driver in order to drive a rental car. If you have personal car insurance, you should check to see whether it covers rental vehicles (and be sure to ask if there are any restrictions, such as vehicle size or international pickups). If you don’t have personal insurance coverage, consider checking your credit card – it may offer a rental car policy if you use it to pay for the rental.
