Renting a car in Austin

How old do you have to be to rent a car in Austin, Texas?

You need to be at least 21 years old to rent a car in Texas. If you are between ages 21-24, there will be a “young driver” surcharge added to your bill. Some rental agencies also limit the type or size of the vehicle young drivers can rent, so check restrictions and pricing when you book.

Road trip from Austin to San Antonio

After you finish exploring Austin, hit the road to experience San Antonio, another great Texas city. The 80-mile drive takes less than two hours, but if you have time, take the scenic Hill Country route and give yourself time to stop along the way for photos!

Shoppers looking for a deal will like the outlets in San Marcos. Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels is a fun waterpark, and you can bring in your own beer—what’s not to love about that?  You could also kick up your heels at Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas, in the charming Old West town of Gruene.

Best roads for scenic drives in Austin

Austin and the surrounding countryside is beautiful, and taking a scenic drive is a great way to soak it all in. Take Highway 290-W to Fredericksburg, where you’ll pass gorgeous wildflowers and wineries. The aptly named “Scenic Drive” is a tree-lined road that runs next to the Colorado River. In the mood for a picnic? Drive to Mount Bonnell, a hilltop park with dramatic views of the city.
