Yes, that’s the best plan. Having access to a car will help you get between your destinations in Austin, visit must-see attractions, and cut down on travel time. While the city has a bus system, its routes leave much to be desired, especially if you’re trying to reach areas outside of downtown Austin.

Payless is located on-site at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport Airport, and our car rental facilities are next to the parking garage, across the street from the airport’s entrance. Check-ins and drop-offs are handled on the second floor at the Payless rental counter. When approaching the airport, follow the rental car signs.

Is there a shuttle for rental cars at Austin airport?

No, there is not a shuttle for rental cars at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. However, Payless is conveniently located in the airport’s on-site rental car facility. After you land at AUS, Payless Car Rental is just a short walk away. Once you arrive, our friendly staff will help you get checked out quickly.

What are the best months to visit Austin, TX?

The best times to visit Austin are between September and October and March and May. Visiting Austin during these times offers more pleasant weather, less humidity, and access to some of the city’s best annual festivals. Alternatively, you can visit Austin between November and February, when it’s a little chillier, but prices are generally lower.
