Top tips for renting a car in Salt Lake City

  • Planning on picking up a hire car after landing at Salt Lake City International Airport? Getting to the hire car center is simple; just exit the main terminal and head to the parking garage across from it -- you will find the hire car counters on the ground floor.
  • Visitors to Salt Lake City will rejoice to hear that Salt Lake City does not suffer from severe rush hour as is so typical in other cities. However, while congestion may not be on the same level as the likes of New York City or Dallas, traffic does still slow from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. In particular, I-15 can get backed up during the peak of rush hour.
  • One of the major advantages of renting a car in Salt Lake City is that the whole city becomes readily accessible. For example, perhaps you would like to catch a Utah Jazz game at Vivint Smart Home Arena. You could take public transportation to the arena, but you will find that a car is a much more convenient way of getting there, especially when you take getting back home after the game into consideration.
  • Utah is an absolute utopia for winter sports, thanks to its world-class snow. However, its snow is both a blessing and a curse for visitors to Utah, as many of them may not be used to driving on snowy or icy roads. Some tips for driving in the snow include: don’t power up hills, avoid stopping on hills, drive slowly, and keep a safe distance from the cars in front of you.
  • Book your rental car in Salt Lake City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Salt Lake City are around 48% cheaper than other car types, on average
