Tips for Finding a Vehicle Bookmark

Early estimates show thousands of Houston-area car owners and dealerships lost vehicles during Hurricane Harvey. With scarce resources, many residents are turning to car rental companies to find transportation. If your car was flooded, finding reliable transportation, even temporary transportation, can be a lifeline in a commuter city such as Houston. To avoid long waits for rental vehicles, residents are encouraged to request a vehicle as soon as possible. Some rent-a-car companies such as Enterprise Holdings, which owns the Alamo, Enterprise, and National rent-a-car agencies, even have emergency response plans in place for dispatching vehicles to affected areas faster. In addition to shipping vehicles to affected areas, Enterprise also waives one-way trip fees for renters who drop off their vehicles in Houston. Residents are encouraged to be patient as vehicles are shipped to Houston from other areas.
