Top tips for renting a car in Chattanooga

  • There are many attractions to explore in and around Chattanooga, including Ruby Falls, the aquarium, and the various parks dotting the area. In order to make the most of your trip to Chattanooga and also get the opportunity to explore the surroundings, rent a car for your time there. It is only a one-hour drive to the edge of the Chattahoochee National Forest, and those who want to pay a visit to Tennessee’s capital can be there by car in two hours.
  • Chattanooga Airport is only 13 miles from the heart of the city, and the fastest way to reach your next destination is by picking up a hire car from one of the onsite agencies, such as Avis, Hertz, and Enterprise. Head to the baggage claim area, where the agency desks are located, and choose from a wide variety of cars for your time in Chattanooga.
  • Nestled at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, traveling in and around Chattanooga can require mountain driving, so it is advisable to familiarize yourself with driving on steep routes. It is essential to reduce your speed and shift into a lower gear when driving down a mountain so the brakes don’t overheat. Within the city limits, there are no unique requirements regarding driving and drivers should face no problems.
  • Rush hour hits Chattanooga between 7 and 9 am and 5 and 8 pm, and especially the I-24 can be clogged up during this time, with commuters going to Nashville or Birmingham. Also be careful when driving in Chattanooga during winter, as snow is a regular companion of the cold months -- and slow down considerably when the roads are icy.
  • Book your rental car in Chattanooga at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
