Top tips for renting a car in Reno

  • Surrounded by lush parks and forests, Reno is a unique oasis that provides plenty of opportunity for outdoor exploration. Deciding to rent a car during your time in Reno will be a worthwhile decision, opening up the ability to discover the beauty of Lake Tahoe, the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Truckee River, and the valleys and desert of Nevada. By hiring a car and maximizing your time in town you will be able to explore the amazing natural landscapes and still check out the funky and eclectic nightlife of downtown Reno.
  • Reno-Tahoe International Airport is located only 3 miles from the downtown district, meaning you can pick up your hire car and be in the city in no time at all. Survey the best list of hire options available at Reno-Tahoe International Airport using KAYAK and organize your hire before you arrive. Major global hire companies such as Alamo, Avis, Hertz, Thrifty, and Budget have counters located within the baggage claim area of the airport terminal.
  • If you plan on traveling to the many mountainous areas surrounding the valley that Reno sits in, keep in mind that the weather at high elevations is unpredictable and thus the road conditions can change quickly. Ensure that you regularly check local weather reports and take extra precautions when driving on snow or ice.
  • Rush hour is a relative piece of cake in Reno compared to other major cities across the United States. While there is increased congestion on the roads between 7 am and 9 am and between 5 pm and 6:30 pm, most of the city is reachable within 45 minutes -- even if you are coming from the opposite side of town!
  • Book your rental car in Reno at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Urban freeways have a maximum speed of 65 mph, while primary undivided roads can have a speed limit of between 55-70 mph.

How are gas prices in Reno?

You can expect to pay approximately $3.09 per gallon of petrol in Reno, which is slightly above the American average. If you are required to return your car with a full tank of gas, consider stopping at the Silver State Food Mart on E Plumb Lane, which is only a mile from Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

Where are the best places to park in Reno?

On-street parking is relatively easy to find, even in the city center; however, there is normally a 2-hour limit unless you park after 6pm. Make the most of free on-street parking available throughout the city on Sundays -- this is the perfect day to plan an adventure through the downtown area.
