What should I provide at the rental counter for the best car rental at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport?

  • When you arrive at the Dallas Airport Car Rental Facility, you will need your valid driver’s license, which must match the name on the rental confirmation. If you are traveling from a country where the driver’s license is not alphabetical, you will also need to bring an International Driver’s Permit. A credit card is the best option for paying, and the name on the credit card must match the driver’s name as well. If you are planning on using a debit card, you will need to do some research to see if it will be accepted. Different rental car companies have their own sets of rules on the use of a debit card, some restrict the use to certain types of vehicles, or certain ages, and some will only allow it at the end of the rental. Make sure you are familiar with the debit card rules, which can be located in the details section of the confirmation email we sent you with your booking, or online once you select a car, you can view the details surrounding that vehicle and car company as well.
