Car rentals not from Airport - possible hotel drop-off

We will be driving from SA to Austin and do not want to pay for a car for the whole trip. Are there companies that would rent to us near the Contessa or drop off at the hotel so we can drive up to Austin and then leave there?

Thanks!

There are but you'll have to shop around. The one way or drop off fees can be very steep depending on the company. So a quick look at enterprise for pickup next Friday and drop off at Austin on Sunday was right at $560.

Wow - really!? Good to know. I wonder what others have done since I am sure combining SA and Austin is a popular itinerary....

There are rental places in the downtown area with reasonable rate but the drop off for another city is usually higher but you could check around to see if there is a better deal with the car rental place.

Check with Avis. We are doing a one way rental with them and they are not charging a drop fee. I don't think they will bring the car to the hotel, but it's within walking distance of the Riverwalk hotels.

Just did a check and pick up at Avis on Bonham St, drop at Austin airport was $49.99 a day for a full-size, no drop fee. Less for smaller cars.
