KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Brownsville

  • Car rentals in Brownsville are a convenient way to explore the interesting attractions both in the city and the surrounding region, including the Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park. Having access to your own vehicle also makes it easy to travel to popular nearby cities, like Harlingen and Rio Bravo. Head to sights that are removed from the city center, such as the Boca Chica State Park, which is known for having great swimming opportunities and is around a 20min drive from the city’s downtown.
  • Those that are interested in Brownsville car rentals can pick them up directly from Brownsville South Padre Island International Airport. The airport’s car rental center can be conveniently found just near the Arrivals Terminal, after the baggage claim. It is within walking distance, so you don’t need to take a taxi or shuttle to arrive here. There are a few different on-site companies to choose between, and some options include Avis, Budget, and Enterprise.
  • Brownsville is known for having many small streets that are winding, particularly along the waterfront, which can be confusing to navigate if you’re not familiar with the region. To help prevent yourself from getting lost, you can add a GPS to car rentals in Brownsville. The city also has many cyclists, so keep your eyes open for them when driving to prevent getting in a collision.
  • Highways 4, 48, and 83 generally have a high amount of traffic during rush hour, as these are the main roads in and out of the city. If you want to avoid getting stuck in a traffic jam, it’s recommended to not drive on these highways between the hours of 8-9:30am and 5-6:30pm. Although the city’s climate is normally warm and temperature, it rains quite often, which generally makes the roads particularly slippery. If you find yourself driving in a storm, decrease your speed limit and drive with extra caution.
  • Book your rental car in Brownsville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Brownsville are around 61% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Brownsville

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Brownsville?

    An SUV is a convenient model to choose for a rental car in the region, as it will provide you with stability when driving in the rain. Since this type of vehicle is spacious, it’ll also provide you with extra comfort when embarking on longer road trips to some of the many state parks in the surrounding region.

Pros:

The person working the counter on the morning of 04/24/2021, was dishonest and cagey. The entire process was a waste of time he stated that the car would was being washed and would be ready in 30 minutes, after more than hour he was stating the same lies and would just walk away and go outside.

Cons:

If the vehicle is not available just tell me it is not even though I had a reservation. Just wasting time waiting for a car that is not going to be available. Do not lie and expect that a customer would be satisfied. I had to use a different company that had a car available at a lower price and was able to rent without any problems

Pros:

Nothing because they canceled my rental the day before I was supposed to get my rental

Cons:

It would have been better if they didn’t gave me false hope by letting me book the rental. If they don’t have the car to be rented, they shouldn’t let me book or reserve the car. In allowing me to reserve, they have stopped me from looking for a better alternative

Picking up the car went very smoothly.

Cons:

The car very was dusty inside and did not have windshield wiper fluid. When returning the car to the airport, there were no signs for Dollar Car rental. It was very confusing and stressful trying to return the car. I was never told that I was supposed to leave it in the Hertz rental car spot. It was also annoying providing a receipt showing that I refilled the car within 10 miles of the airport. The company should be able to turn on the car and see that the tank is full.
