Top tips for renting a car in Louisville

  • Ready to rent a car on your road trip to Louisville? Instead of using public transport, rent a car for an ultimate sense of freedom while exploring this city. There is no better way to see all that Louisville has to offer than by roaming around its charming streets. From the Highlands to the Ohio River to Cherokee Park, the city has plenty of sights to discover by car.
  • If you are flying into Louisville, it’s good to know that there are two airports: Louisville International and Bowman Fields. When you land at Louisville International Airport you will find the car hire counters on-site at the airport’s main Terminal. Once you get into arrivals, the car hire counters are located on the lower level near baggage claim.
  • Drivers new to the state of Kentucky will have to navigate various interstates, county roads, and city streets, along with rural and secondary roads. Louisville has many bicycle lanes to cater for its large bicycling community, so look out for cyclists in the city. During winter, be prepared for heavy snowfall and decrease your speed when driving in tough conditions.
  • Driving on Louisville’s crowded interstates during rush hour, particularly around Spaghetti Junction where three major interstates meet and merge, means you will encounter heavy traffic at some point. You should avoid driving in the morning, from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and during the afternoon between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm. On Thursdays you can expect delays during the evening commute on Thursdays, while on Friday mornings the rush hour is much lighter.
  • Book your rental car in Louisville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
