If you're arriving in town by plane, you may wish to pick up your rental car from one of the many car rental companies that serve Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz, National and Thrifty are all located in DFW's Rental Car Center. We can also show you a map of the nearest car rental locations to your hotel and the rental cars they carry. (And keep in mind that off-airport car rentals are often cheaper than at the airport, even from the same car rental company.)
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.
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.
