KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Lakeway

  • Using car rentals in Lakeway offers distinct advantages. It grants unparalleled convenience, enabling you to explore the city and its scenic surroundings at your own pace. Unlike relying on public transport, a rented car ensures flexibility and autonomy, allowing you to reach off-the-beaten-path destinations easily. With Lakeway's diverse attractions spread out, a car offers efficient access to attractions, dining, and outdoor activities. With Lakeway car rentals, you can visit areas like the beautiful Hamilton Pool Preserve, the charming Hill Country Vineyards, and the scenic Lake Travis, all of which are more accessible if you have a car.
  • If you fly to Lakeway, you'll probably land at Austin Bergstrom Airport (AUS), about 26 miles from Lakeway. At Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, you can conveniently locate rental cars on-site, in a Consolidated rental car facility. You'll find the pedestrian crossing adjacent to the baggage claim area. Opting for a car rental at AUS will offer you the convenience of immediate access upon arrival, streamlining your journey and saving time.
  • Driving car rentals in Lakeway is an unforgettable experience, especially if you follow the designated rules and regulations. Driving in Lakeway generally reflects a calm and relaxed style, with residents tending to adhere to traffic rules. The community places importance on road safety and respects regulations. While bicycles are present, they are less numerous than in larger cities, and trucks are commonly seen due to the suburban landscape. Jaywalking is less common, and pedestrians usually use designated crossings. Typical vehicles include sedans, SUVs, and pickups, reflecting the city's suburban character.
  • Navigating car rentals in Lakeway may pose challenges during rush hours, typically between 7 and 9 am and 4 to 7 pm. Traffic congestion can be notable along Ranch to Market Road 620 and RM 2222, significant routes connecting the city to Austin. These roads experience increased volume, potentially leading to slower travel times. It's advisable to plan your travel outside of these peak hours to avoid delays and ensure a smoother driving experience. Another challenge is winding and hilly roads, particularly in the hilly terrain surrounding the Lake Travis area. These roads might require extra caution and skill, especially for those not accustomed to driving in such conditions.

Pros:

One needs to be very careful in checking puck up and drip off locations. My pick up was NOT at the airport . The airport location told me there would be a sleight upcharge to redo the reservation and start a new one. The price was DOUBLE and there is no refund on the Priceline reservation!

Cons:

The airport should have helped there customer and traveler and explained to me where the other location was. They should have advised me to take a 30$ Cab ride and saved myself over 500$. I had to jump through hoops to get it right. In all fairness, the Representative at the OTHER location was awesome! He was helpful, honest and empathetic to my situation.

When I picked up my car o was charged an additional $80. I noticed it a few hours later when I had to take the car back cause of the maintenance light being on. Not to mention the car was dirty and had the previous customers outdo so belongings still in it. And Budget had the nerve to have a dirty car clause in the contract stating if you brought the cat back dirty, there was a $400 fee when they gave the car to me dirty. I took the car back due to the maintenance light being on but I had to take it to the Budget at the Austin Airport because the location (Barton Creek) that I picked it up from was closed. I explained the situation to the ppl at the Airport, and was told because I picked it up 40 minutes early, I was charged for another day which was BS. No one told me a thing. If I was informed, I would have waited the 50 minutes and came back, I was in the mall anyway. After Waiting in line over 30 minutes, I exchanged the first car and had the same issue with the maintenance lights being on. So I had to get back in line and wait another 40-45 minutes to exchange the second car. I get a third car and it wreaks of string cigarette smoke to the point I began to immediately start coughing and got a headache. Got back in line to inform them of this issue and the lady said she can clean it out to get rid of the smell so I was like ok. She took about another 30 minutes to get the smell out of the car with air fresheners. We left the rental car place and after about an hour into the trip, thr cigarette smell came back stronger than before. Dealing with the multiple exchanges with this car took up valuable time that I did not have. When I returned the car I was charged a total of $160 over what my reservation was for. The owner at the Barton Creek Mall location said he would refund my $160 and send confirmation to my email. I have yet to receive that email

6.0 Okay

May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

The car functioned

Cons:

I showed up late to my reservation so the rate changed, increasing my bill for a one-week rental by $150, which was my fault. But the agent at the desk didn't tell me my rate was increasing, instead obfuscating the increase with a bunch of fees, one of which was a fee for prepaid gas which I explicitly declined. I called support to inquire about the rate increase, which I only noticed later, and it took over an hour to get a straight answer. During that call the service agent said she'd remove the prepaid gas free, since I declined it, and she didn't. So... yeah, the car functioned fine but the customer service was terrible.

It turns out my car was reserved at a place 15 miles across town. They told me if I wanted a car at the airport it would be 4 times the amount. There was no shuttle to the other place. I called a Lyft and when I got there the place was closed. I bailed on the whole thing.

Pros:

Dropoff was easy and quick

Cons:

Pick up at Austin-Bergstrom Airport was awful. There was only one person at the counter and we waited more than 30 minutes for service, even though there were only two people ahead of us. The clerk at the counter was surly and did not have a pleasant demeanor. All the other rental counters at that location had a minimum of 3 people and the lines moved quickly. The car was a Toyota Corolla. It was OK, although it did smell like someone was smoking inside and was not clean outside. Windows were noticeably dirty.
