Top tips for renting a car in Richmond

  • Get the most out of your time in Richmond by renting a car and exploring the city and surroundings in your own time. If you want to visit the Richmond Raceway for a car race, having a hire car means you are just 13 minutes away. Nature lovers may also want to visit the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, about 8 miles north of Richmond and only a 12-minute drive away.
  • Start your time in Richmond stress-free and pick up a hire car upon landing at Richmond International Airport. This airport features its own car hire center with nine agencies providing vehicles of all shapes and sizes. Located on the lower level at the entrance of the terminal building, finding a car and being on your way to the city will only take a matter of minutes.
  • Especially during the Christmas season and the cold months, Richmond has an enchanting vibe because of its snowy winters. For driving, this means to prepare properly and making sure the hire car is equipped accordingly with winter tires and even snow chains. It is also very important to slow down when the streets are covered in snow, and bear in mind that lanes may be narrower due to plows piling up snow on either side.
  • Speeding in the state of Virginia is really not a good idea – it should be refrained from in general, but in Richmond you may even be charged with reckless driving. Familiarize yourself with speed regulations beforehand and never go faster than 70 mph, as speeders are fined severely in and around Richmond. Always pace your speed and adhere to the posted speed limit signs.
  • Book your rental car in Richmond at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

What type of car is recommended for driving in Richmond?

Especially when visiting during winter months, opting for a 4-wheel drive car can be a wise decision as it provides the necessary traction and can handle the harsh conditions better. An SUV or minivan guarantee enough space but are not too bulky when cruising through the city, making a good alternate option.

What's the speed limit in Richmond?

Reckless driving is taken very seriously in Virginia and categorized as a criminal offense, so adhering to speed limits is crucial. If there is no sign posted, 25 mph is permitted in residential areas, 55 mph is allowed on secondary roads (which are marked with a sign beginning with #600 or above). The highest speed limit on freeways is 70 mph, but it should also be adjusted to weather and road conditions.

How are gas prices in Richmond?

The average petrol price in Richmond is around $2.30 per gallon, which also makes it an average-priced state in the US. Stations like Costco or Sam’s Club tend to be on cheaper side and petrol can be as low as $2.12 per gallon.

Where are the best places to park in Richmond?

There are various parking opportunities in Richmond, including metered on-street parking, garages, and parking lots. Usually time restrictions are enforced on weekdays between 8 am and 6 pm and can be from 15 minutes up to three hours. Garages include the Public Parking, James Center Parking Garage, or the SP + Parking.
