Car Rental Midland Odessa Airport 

Midland-Odessa International Airport Car Rental Guide

Serving as the primary airport for West Texas's Permian Basin, Midland-Odessa International Airport (MAF) is a pivotal hub for travelers aiming to explore the twin cities and the broader West Texas region. Renting a car here offers both convenience and the freedom to traverse this vast and scenic landscape at your leisure.

Car Rental Agencies:
At MAF, you'll find a selection of reputable car rental agencies all of whom we represent, such as:

  • Avis
  • Budget
  • Enterprise
  • Hertz
  • National
  • Alamo

Booking Tips:

  • Advance Reservations: Due to the bustling oil industry and associated business travel, demand can be high. Always consider booking in advance.
  • Vehicle Selection: Given the expansive Texas terrains, many opt for larger vehicles like SUVs or pickups, especially if group or gear transport is needed. But for city cruising, compact cars or sedans will suffice.
  • Insurance: Before purchasing additional insurance from the rental counter, verify your existing auto insurance and credit card coverage for rental vehicles.

Exiting the Airport & Road Conditions:

  • The airport is situated between Midland and Odessa, with direct routes to both cities. I-20 is the main interstate connecting the two.
  • The roads in West Texas are typically well-maintained, but always be vigilant for large trucks, especially with the active oil industry.


  • West Texas, including the Midland-Odessa area, is primarily free from toll roads.

Local Driving Customs:

  • Texas state law requires seat belts for all passengers in a vehicle.
  • Texting while driving is prohibited. Stay hands-free.
  • Yield to school buses when they have stop signs extended. It's illegal to pass them in either direction unless there's a divided highway.

Weather Considerations:

  • Summer: Hot and dry conditions prevail. Ensure your rental has functioning A/C.
  • Winter: West Texas can occasionally see chilly temperatures but rarely heavy snowfall. Still, if renting in winter, opt for vehicles with good heating and perhaps an all-weather tire if planning to travel to colder regions.

Gas stations are abundant in both Midland and Odessa, and along major highways. Always check your rental agreement for fuel return policies.

Local Attractions:

  • Permian Basin Petroleum Museum: Delve into the region's rich oil history.
  • Odessa Meteor Crater: A fascinating natural wonder showcasing a meteor impact site.
  • Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center: A premier venue for shows and concerts.

Both Midland and Odessa offer ample street parking, public lots, and parking garages. As always, adhere to posted parking regulations.

In Summary:
Renting a car from Midland-Odessa International Airport is a wise choice for anyone keen to explore the breadth of West Texas. With the right vehicle and an awareness of local driving customs, you're set for an exciting journey.
