Click on the second tab of our branch menu to see where it would be best for you to rent a car in Dallas. If you are flying into the city, quickly continue your journey from our Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport branch. Our airport location is open every day and provides the option of 24-hour vehicle returns. We also other two other pick up spots, one at the Dallas/Addison Marriot Quorum hotel and one at the Sheraton in downtown Dallas. All of branches offer a large selection of premium, up-to-date vehicles from leading brand manufacturers.
Driving in Dallas can be a challenge so we recommend to make use of a GPS and traffic apps on your smart phone to stay up to date about congestion. The Mixmaster is particularly tricky as you need to be aware of which lane will allow you to exit towards your desired destination. In general, traffic tends to be worse mornings heading into the city and away from the city centers in the evening. Plan your route ahead of time to make sure you know how to or can pay for any electronic toll roads you may encounter along your route.
Dallas has created a business-friendly environment and is home around 18 Fortune 500 companies plus to a vibrant entrepreneurial community. With a rental vehicle you can easily move about and make it to client meetings and events. The startup scene is also growing in the Big D and there are regular meetups like Dallas New Tech and Startup Grind Dallas, where technology professionals can network. It is also worth checking out what is happening at the Dallas Regional Chamber which offers programs and events exploring the future of business and innovation in the area.
