Going to Galveston from IAH airport. Car rental prices are very high. Are there big events going on locally making it so costly? Please share options for best car rental prices please for 2 passengers. Thanks Much. DD

Car rental prices are high in large part because of taxes imposed by local government. Best idea is to shop around using kayak.com and similar web sites.

Will you need car in Galveston? If not, consider taking Super Shuttle from IAH to Galveston at much lower cost, and then just walking while there, although this may not work for you.

Enterprise is the only car rental company on the island that I'm aware of. It this is a one way rental, rates will be higher. I called them directly and was quoted a oneway rate of $1005 including rental, drop fee, taxes, etc.

A regular rental to/from IAH was quoting at $900.

Not certain what is causing the high rates.

I saw $40/day with hotwire. It sounds like you are staying in Galveston for those days and not going a cruise. You can also try to rent "off airport" and return to airport where you will save some in airport taxes.
