Important information about Grand Prairie car hire

Rental car agencies are split on whether to allow customers to travel to Mexico with a rental car. For some, the simple answer is no: if you rent your car in the U.S. it must stay in the U.S. For car hire locations that do allow you to drive to Mexico, be aware that some may mandate that you are a U.S. resident and you may be limited distance beyond the U.S. border. Note that one-way rentals are not allowed and the car must be returned to a location in the U.S. Although you may be covered by insurance in the U.S., the Mexican government requires Mexican car insurance if you will be driving in Mexico. You will need to purchase this insurance at your car rental location in Grand Prairie. This insurance cannot be purchased online. Be sure to call to confirm details for your car rental in Grand Prairie several days before your trip.

Although credit cards are still a preferred form of payment among car rental agencies, most are now also accepting debit cards. The catch is, that they will require a deposit or hold on usually several hundred dollars when you pick up your rental car. The procedure will likely be the same for your Grand Prairie car rental, whether you are choosing an electric car rental, a luxury car rental, or even a people carrier rental. The hold will be released when you return the car and settle your bill. In addition to accepting a credit card or debit card payment, some car rental agencies will allow you to pay for your rental with cash, a gift card (from Visa, Mastercard, or Amex, for example), or by check. Give your rental company a call to check the details of your car rental in Grand Prairie a few days before your trip to make sure you understand their payment policies.

You may be enjoying driving your cheap car rental in Grand Prairie across the city and surrounding areas and cities, but you’ll want to keep a few things in mind to keep that rental from becoming expensive. When you park, always engage your parking brake, because officers can ticket you if you park without using it. Do not leave your rental car unattended with the keys in the ignition or you may face a hefty fine. You’ll also want to be careful opening your car doors and make sure to park first, because even if you are stopped at an intersection and/or stoplight, the law says opening a car door while you are on a public street (in a driving lane) can earn you a ticket. Watch your speed, even just a few miles over the limit can bring you an expensive speeding ticket.

If you are arriving in the U.S. from another country, be sure to bring a few items with you for your car rental in Grand Prairie. The state of Texas does not require an international driver’s permit. However, if you plan to drive outside the state you will need to check with your rental car agency to determine whether adjacent states will require this permit. For your Grand Prairie car rental, you will need to present a valid license from your home country, that will not expire during your trip. An International Driver’s Permit will also come in handy to corroborate your identity if your license is not presented in English. You might also have your license translated to English and notarised before your trip to speed your transactions at the car rental counter. Keep your passport at the ready, too, as a third form of ID is requested at some agencies.
