KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Corpus Christi

  • From no man’s land to a beautiful bay on the Gulf Coast of Southern Texas, Corpus Christi has much to offer in terms of attractions, including Bob Hall Pier and Corpus Christi Bayfront Seawall. If you have just arrived, you can access car rentals in Corpus Christi through KAYAK and rent the ideal vehicle to visit this fascinating city conveniently.
  • Arranging for a Corpus Christi rental car pick-up and drop-off at the Corpus Christi International Airport is a convenient way to start and end your trip in Corpus Christi. For accessibility, companies such as Alamo, Avis, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, National, and Thrifty are within a short walking distance from Corpus Christi International Airport.
  • Corpus Christi has a laid-back, calm vibe, which makes driving comfortable when there is minimal traffic. The morning rush hour begins from around 7am to 8am. During weekdays, rush hour begins from around 6:30am to 8:30am, and around 5pm to 6pm. Getting through the city during other times of the day or night is easy and fast since there are three major highways. However, drivers are still urged to maintain focus on the road to avoid violation charges. Car rentals in Corpus Christi can give you a map of the different driving routes, making it easy to connect to neighborhoods, so don’t forget to request one.
  • Corpus Christi has an impressive road network. For this reason, nearly any day and time are perfect for a drive-in or out of the city, unless it’s during rush hours. If you plan to drive around Corpus Christi and its neighborhoods, we recommend checking traffic updates on different platforms to plan your expeditions and save time. It is recommended to do this, especially during winter, to avoid slippery roads and heavy traffic jams.
  • Book your rental car in Corpus Christi at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Pros:

That I booked a truck and it would be ready for pick up.

Cons:

The customer service at the rental place could of been a lot better. Having a truck available would of definitely been a plus. Not being frowned upon fir using a third party agency to book what should of been my rental. Having the truck I reserved or anything to accommodate the size of the vehicle I rented. Again the customer service sucked.

I left my truck and it was broken into on hertz property. And now 2 weeks later, I'm being charged 62$ multiple times multiple days. I bought the insurance, I filled up the tank, i dropped off on time and filled out paperwork as asked. Never got a call or email about any new charges or reason why there would be, but 2 weeks later... I'm being charged without any notice multiple times

We made a reservation months ahead because four of us were taking a trip out of town. When we arrived to pick up the car, the Nissan quest/minivan we had reserved was nowhere to be seen. We were informed that our "choice" was a Dodge journey or nothing!! It's a huge difference to go from a car that seats five people and seven bags, to one that seats four people and three bags. When asked if there would be a discount due to the fact that this car was several classes below what we had reserved and PAID FOR IN ADVANCE, we were told no. The whole interaction put a really bad taste in my mouth. I've been a hertz gold club member many times in my life, but my loyalties will go elsewhere after this situation. Such a shame.

Cons:

It was a surprise that on top of the payment I owed $80 in taxes. This negated the benefit of this transaction vs other reservations. Then, my flight arrived at 9PM. Hertz was closed. I could not get a rental car for one night as none were available so I had to Uber for $60 more. So not reserving here next time.

Cons:

There was lack of information online about there being a double your cost deposit so I went unprepared and I live 30 min from the nearest pick up. If it would have been posted online that you'll need double your total in a deposit I would have gotten things prepared with my credit card. Ended up not getting the rental and cancelling plans to see family I haven't seen in 7 years.
