Getting around in your Dallas Airport rental car
Dallas is a large city, with a mix of freeways and small one-way streets. Take note of these tips before picking up your Dallas Airport car rental.
- Dallas is among the most congested cities in the USA. A GPS unit or a properly mounted cellphone with updated navigational apps is a necessity for finding your way around while driving your DFW airport car rental.
- One-way streets are common in Dallas, so map out your route in advance and pay close attention to directional street signs.
- There are plenty of pedestrians and bikers in the city, and they are known for ignoring traffic and give-way rules, so be extra careful around them and don’t assume they will yield to you.
- Some highways around the city are tollways. You can get a TollTag with your DFW rental car, or pay cash or credit at toll plazas. Please check the rental locations policies and/or offerings for toll products.
- Avoid rush hour traffic if you can, and give yourself plenty of time to get from Point A to B.
- When it comes to yellow lights, most locals will blaze straight through them, so be wary of hitting the brakes if there’s a car behind you.
