One of the joys of choosing hired cars in San Antonio is that parking is easily accessible in the city. Rush hour in San Antonio is mainly between early mornings and late evenings during weekdays, therefore drivers are advised to avoid these times if you’re on a schedule. Drivers are also advised to avoid US 281 North, which is usually packed during rush hour. There are also several ambient neighbourhoods located on the outskirts of the city that can be accessed via car from San Antonio car rentals, as well as famous towns, such as Bandera, which is known as the "Cowboy Capital of the World."  Rental cars in San Antonio provide you with the ease and convenience of exploring the city on your own time.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in San Antonio?

While opting to choose between hired cars in San Antonio, it is important that you know about the driving laws in the city. For one, you will find that it is illegal for drivers to call, write or read messages, take photos, browse, play games or even hold any sort of phone while driving. Drivers and passengers are also not allowed to open the doors of the car without first making sure that the opening will not endanger the lives of nearby pedestrians or vehicles moving along traffic. The law also states that all passengers must be secured by a seatbelt, including children on car seats, which can be added to your San Antonio car rental upon request.

Can I drive into Mexico with a rental car from San Antonio?

If you wish to visit Mexico from San Antonio, be aware that the Mexican border has several restrictions when it comes to crossing with a rental car. Only some branches allow San Antonio car rentals to cross the border, and you also may be limited to how far you can go in Mexico. Contact the car rental location in San Antonio to determine their availability. You’re required to present valid permits and visas at the Mexican border as well as obtaining Mexican liability insurance for the car before entering. For those who are Mexican citizens, the Mexican law does not permit driving a U.S.-owned vehicle in Mexico.

Can you hire a car in San Antonio without a credit card?

Renting a car rental in San Antonio without a credit card is possible. Most rental offices allow debit card payments although usually along with a few requirements. A common requirement is that the debit card must be bearing the VISA or MasterCard logo. Some hired cars in San Antonio also allow Discovery cards. Another one of the shared requirements is that the name on the card must be the same as the renters’ and main driver. Alamo could be a good option for getting a cheap car rental in San Antonio with a debit card since they only require presenting a passport along with proof of a return ticket. Nonetheless, we suggest you get in contact with the car rental branch to clarify any restrictions, surcharges, and requirements to pay for your vehicle with a debit card.

What documents does an international traveler need to rent a car in San Antonio?

To be able to pick up your cheap hired cars in San Antonio, be aware you may need extra documentation if you are not a U.S. or Canadian resident. If your foreign driving license is not in English, you should be in the clear presenting your license along with a passport. If your driving license is not in the Latin alphabet, you may be required to show an International Driving Permit (IDP) that you must obtain in your country of origin. It isn’t possible to get an IDP in the United States with a foreign license. You will also be required to purchase U.S. car insurance since it’s illegal to drive in the United States without it. Depending on the car rental in San Antonio, they may also require seeing a document proving you have a return trip back to your country of residence. We recommend contacting the car rental office beforehand to clarify any other necessary documents for your rental.
