    It look like I will have to drive into HOU from Corpus Christy early morning to make an 1150am American Airlines flight.... so, assuming I have a Hertz rental but have no status, anybody have an idea how long the car return and transfer to the Terminal will take me.... Im trying to plan this so that I dont have to wake up at 4am to leave from Corpus....

    Thanks,
    Alex / Gaucho

    Hi Alex. Are you flying out of HOU (Hobby?)...or did you use HOU as a short-form of Houston?

    Then I don't have the answer! I've only been in and out of IAH.

    Normally status with Hertz seems to help only when picking up the car, not when returning it as most Hertz airport locations IME have employees roaming through the return lanes with little printers so that they come up to your car as you're parking, give you the receipt, and then you're off to the bus to the terminal. I can only remember once going to a return counter in the USA and maybe once dropping the keys in a box at a very strange hour. However, I don't remember going through Hobby, so someone who uses this airport can probably be much more helpful.
