I worry about details and whether my wife will be happy with the vehicle. The manager, Eva Garza was so helpful and had that great spirit that made the whole experience a joy. Eva is a great communicator and made the rental contract process quick and easy to understand. The vehicle was clean and wonderful. We prefer to rent with Avis as we have always had an excellent experiences in the past. The Avis location was excellent for us as well. I will recommend to all of my friends renting from Eva Garza at this Avis location. I took a bunch of her cards, too.Nothing. The experience could not have been better.
6.8 GoodDec 28 2017
Price was excellent considering it was a one way rental. Car was in good condition, and ran well.Representative knew we were coming and was not at the desk when we arrived. She was out smoking and we ended up waiting for more than 10 minutes. I prepaid for a tank of gas and the car was only at 7/8ths.

Rent from another locationPick up staff was very rude, wasn't wearing shoes, felt like I was ruining his day to pick up my car. The car was also in bad shape with a flat tire, garbage and a sheering chatter.

1.9 HorribleJul 30 2021
I was not aware that Hertz requires a credit card to rent anything above car. So when I showed up the day before vacation I could not rent the mini van. So it was not a great start to vacation. Even when I called to verify my rental three days before Hertz said nothing about having a credit card that a debit card would not work. I will never use Hertz again. And will tell everyone that even though debit card which is linked to a checking account it doesn’t matter. Rental was no help either. What should have been simple and easy which I have done in the past was horrible stressful and I will go back to enterprise from now on directly. I may never use a third party vendor for rental again.
5.2 OkayOct 13 2020
Drop-off was super easy. They let us use their lot to leave our car.They could have ensured the car they were giving had been properly cleaned. We received a car that had a plummet of cigarette smoke and with my wife having asthma that was hazardous.

2.0 MediocreJun 14 2018
Didnt mention the additional 200 dollar required deposit. Had to open an escalated ticket to get the refund. The guy at the desk was no help at all.
4.8 OkayNov 18 2016
The vehicle was so loud, I had to turn the radio's volume as high as it would go to hear it. I traveled for 12 hours in that state. It was an extremely unpleasant trip! I am now unsure if I should use Hertz in the future!
2.0 MediocreNov 10 2016
TerribleNOTHINGThey gave my rental away at the last minute. I have never encountered this in my entire life. I let them know I wasn't sure what time I would be in, as it was an emergency situation, and that I would put a deposit down if need be. They said it was fine, as long as I was in before 5 my reservation would be held. I get there, ready to hit the road, and they said they gave it away (and they weren't very nice about it). I said it was fine, and that I'll take another vehicle, to which they replied "we don't have anymore vehicles." A car lot full of vehicles, and they couldn't hold mine, or give me another one? First and last time I use Herts, Enterprise saved the day again!

Car rental insurance in Denton

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Denton car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Denton.


Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Denton car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Denton

  • Denton has an elaborate transport infrastructure, allowing people to get around the city. Travelers can either choose public transport or reserve car rentals in Denton. The problems with boarding a public bus or train include long waiting times, delays, and lack of flexibility. You can rent a car and enjoy enhanced comfort, convenience, and freedom of moving around the city to nearby cities such as Corinth, Southlake, Lewisville, among others. Car rentals in Denton will give you the freedom to discover more attractions, such as Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center and Old Alton Bridge.
  • The Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, which is approximately 27 miles away from the central business district, serves Denton city and its neighborhoods. It has over ten car rental companies, including Avis, Enterprise, Budget, and Hertz. There is a Rental Car Center at the DFW Airport situated at E. 38th Street, near the flight hub's south entrance. Arriving travelers can follow the car rental signs that lead to the lower level of the terminal. Here, you'll board the Rent-A-Car shuttles that carry travelers to the Rental Car Center, 10min away, where they can pick up their rental cars.
  • Denton is a big city with busy roads full of cyclists and pedestrians, so you need to drive carefully while looking out for people who might cross the road unexpectedly.

If you’re in town during winter, avoid driving through flooded roads and watch out for ice patches that may be present on the streets and roadways.

However, traffic gets congested on downtown streets during rush hour, between 7am and 9am, and in the evening between 5pm to around 7pm.

The TxDOT urges motorists to stay off roadways due to inclement weather and road pretreatments projects. The department is also experiencing power outages on traffic signs, cameras, and traffic signals. If you encounter them at intersections, treat them as four-way stops.
