Top Tips For Renting a Car in Cleveland

  • Cleveland is a fantastic working class American city, steeped in history and with a gritty authentic atmosphere. What lies beyond the downtown district, however, is truly magical: Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio’s Amish countryside, and the Cedar Point Amusement Park all lie within a short drive of Cleveland, making renting a car during your stay a fantastic idea. If you’re a cheese lover, make sure you also make the drive out to Heini’s Cheese Chalet in Millersburg and Broad Run Cheese & Swiss Heritage Winery in Sugarcreek, both located a little over an hour south of the downtown district.
  • Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is located 9 miles away from the center of town, and the drive will only take about 20 minutes. Explore the best available deals using KAYAK, with major rental companies such as Alamo, Enterprise, Avis, and Budget to choose from. The car rental facility at the airport is easily accessed via a free shuttle, which leaves regularly from the door outside Baggage Claim 7.
  • Some major highways in the state of Ohio operate as tollways, so it is best to familiarize yourself with which ones you drive on and the specific conditions of your rental agreement. The I-90, I-80, and I-76 Highways come together to make the Ohio Turnpike, a major tollway that connects Cleveland with Toledo to the west and Pittsburgh to the east.
  • Northeast Ohio is renowned for its snowfall, experiencing the heaviest months of downfall between December and March. During this period, it is particularly important to tune in to local weather reports and apply extra caution while driving on icy roads. The primary rule for snow driving is to provide additional space to the car in front of you, as braking distances increase due to icy roads.
