There is a lot more to Dallas than gridiron Cowboys and memories of J.R. Ewing. The downtown area is peppered with impressive architecture, first-rate eateries, and shops galore. 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.


Dallas Zoo: Situated three miles south-west of Dallas’ Downtown core, the Dallas Zoo is a popular family attraction that is home to more than 2000 animals. You can see penguins, elephants, giraffes, and gorillas — and in the Lacerte Family Children’s Zoo, your kids can enjoy pony rides, farmyard animals, and more. If you want to get closer to the creatures, you can take part in the Backstage Safari.

The vast majority of our rentals include Theft Protection, Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), local taxes, airport surcharges and any road fees. You'll pay for any ‘extras' when you pick your car up, along with any young driver, additional driver or one-way fees – but we'll explain any additional costs before you book your car (and taking your own child seats or GPS can be an easy way to reduce your costs). For more details on what's included, just check the Ts&Cs of any car you're looking at.
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.
Cons: I was overcharged and didn't realize it at the time. I reserved the car through CarRentals.com at a rate of $37/day. The salesman at the counter told me I could upgrade for $12/day and I agreed. I was charged $30/day more -- $67. When I turned in the car, they said they would email a receipt to me because their computers were down. I never received the receipt by email but my credit card was charged for the higher $67/day rate. I felt like the salesman was trying to upsell me. I will probably not use Avis again.
