Top tips for renting a car in Indianapolis

  • Make the most out of your trip to Indiana’s capital and rent a car upon your arrival in Indianapolis. Explore the many attractions conveniently on your own four wheels, such as the Zoo, Lilly Recreation Park, or the Lucas Oil Stadium to enjoy a game. A hire car can give travelers the flexibility they need to explore the city and the surroundings in their own time and pace.
  • Indianapolis Airport is over 12 miles from the city center, so renting a car upon landing is the best option to start your visit quickly and free of hassle. The airports sports its own Transportation Center, in which eight hire companies offer vehicles in all shapes and sizes. Head to the first floor of the terminal garage to find your perfect car and take the I-70 W to get to the city center in less than 20 minutes.
  • Indianapolis is also known as the “Crossroads of America” since various interstates like the I-465, I-65, I-70, or I-865 run through the city and connect it with the surrounding areas. At first, the many exits can be confusing, so checking the route and traffic conditions before entering Indianapolis is advised. When entering roundabouts, remain in the outer lane, as it can be hard to reach the exit once driving in the inner lane. Also, cars inside the roundabout have the right of way, so don’t stop to let other cars in.
  • Rush hour usually hits Indianapolis between 7-9 am in the morning and 5-7 pm in the evening. As Indianapolis spans quite a big area, it can take more than half an hour to get from A to B without traffic, so planning at least one hour ahead is a good idea. Construction sites are also a common sight in Indianapolis and checking traffic obstructions beforehand helps navigate easier through the city.
  • Book your rental car in Indianapolis at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in Indianapolis?

As winter can bring lots of snow to Indianapolis, a 4-wheel-drive car is the best option for a trip to the city. An SUV or minivan will provide great traction and enough space, but is still compact enough to cruise through the city without causing too many problems when it comes to parking and navigating narrow lanes. Bear in mind that, with plowing in winter, streets can become narrower as the snow piles up on both sides.

What's the speed limit in Indianapolis?

Unless posted otherwise, general regulations permit 15 mph in alleys, 25 mph in school zones, and 30 mph in residential areas. 60 mph is permitted on interstate highways in suburban areas and up to 70 mph is allowed on rural interstate highways. Especially in the winter, it is crucial to adapt the speed to the current weather conditions.

How are gas prices in Indianapolis?

The average price for petrol per gallon is around $2.30 in Indianapolis, but petrol stations like Costco or Murphy USA offer rates as low as $2.20. When visiting Indianapolis in the cold season, make sure the tank is at least half full during the night; otherwise, the petrol line is more likely to freeze up.

Where are the best places to park in Indianapolis?

As long as there is no big event like the Indianapolis 500 on, parking in the city is not too difficult when compared to other big cities. On-street parking is metered in most places, but after 9 pm and on Sundays it is free. Alternatively, there are city garages and parking lots available, such as the City Park or Express Park Garage.
