Default Galveston Rental Car

I would like to know if you can rent a car at the airport and drop it in Galveston. I plan on being in Galveston 2 days befor we leave. Just think it would be easy to get around. Thank you

I would look at the cost of the 2 day rental and drop off other than pick up point charges versus the weekly charge and the hotel-where you can park the car for free while on the cruise. Then you still need a way back to the airport.

In February we rented at Bush from Enterprise & dropped in Galveston. I think we paid a $40 drop fee.

We are renting a car from Hertz at Houston Hobby airport on Sat. and returning it on Sunday. Hertz has a shuttle that takes you to the ship. We are returning to the airport on Galvenston Limo shuttle.

We had a terrible experience with Hertz in Galveston. We had reserved a car months in advance & when our ship came in - they didn't have enough cars. Took a cab over to Enterprise & had one within minutes.
