Top tips for renting a car in Kansas City

  • Kansas City, like most cities in the U.S., depends highly on car transportation. There simply is no more efficient or better way to get around town, whether you plan on catching a Kansas City Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium or you are just going out to eat.
  • Looking to pick up a hire car for your time in Kansas City? Travelers with flights landing at Kansas City International Airport can take the hire car shuttle from the airport terminals to the hire car center, where they will find numerous hire car companies.
  • Though Kansas City is not that far north, it still experiences some pretty harsh winters. Snow and ice can quickly blanket roads, and drivers should be prepared for wintery weather if they visit in the colder months of the year. Drivers not confident in their ability to handle the snow should make sure to drive extra carefully and to check the weather regularly so they aren’t caught out in a storm.
  • Nobody likes to be stuck in rush hour and, with a bit of preparation, nobody has to be. In Kansas City the morning rush hour goes from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and then picks back up again in the afternoon at around 3:30 p.m. and goes until 7:00 p.m. throughout much of the metropolitan area. Some of the streets to avoid during rush hour include I-35, the southern portion of I-435 and I-70. The worst streets are all highways primarily because of the high volume of commuters going into and out of the city for work.
  • Book your rental car in Kansas City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
