We'll be able to help you a little better if you tell us what you like to do. Hike, museums, shop, music etc? The downtown area is easily accessed without a car but one would be necessary if you wish to visit the Hill Country outside Austin.

Hotels will much more expensive during the F-1 weekend, UT home football weekends.

Welcome to Austin!

Also, if you can give us your exact dates we will be able to tell you if there are any big events in Austin on your specific dates. Thanks

If you stay downtown in a hotel you will be fine without a car hire. However, if you want to go beyond downtown or to visit surrounding small unique Texas Hill Country towns then you will need a car hire.

I would say it depends on how long you are planning to stay as to whether or not to rent a car. For a few days, you can enjoy just the Austin downtown area. If you are here longer you may want to get a car to see some of the surrounding area or a trip to San Antonio.

Here is a link to some events that have been announced for November - http://events.austin360.com/austin-tx/events/austin+november

Also, November 1 - 14 is Wurstfest in New Braunfels. It is a little mini Octoberfest and you would need a car to get there - http://wurstfest.com/

City of Austin has contracted with two leasing car companies for pickup/drop off spots around town, for short term lease might be good, but too expensive for numerous days at a time

Look up car 2 go and zip car for more info
