KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Elko

  • Driving car rentals in Elko is the best way to see this city in the northwest corner of Nevada. Public transportation is largely unavailable, and Elko car rentals can easily get you around the city, from the Northeastern Nevada Museum to the “Elko E” historical landmark to the Elko Sports Complex on the shores of the Humboldt River. Car rentals in Elko give you access to communities, deserts, and mountains beyond the city limits, including Spring Creek, the South Fork State Recreation Area, and Ruby Dome.
  • Located in the heart of Elko, sandwiched between Route 535 and I-80, the Elko Regional Airport (EKO) makes a convenient location for securing car rentals in Elko. The car rental agencies are easily located near the baggage claim carousels in this small but well-appointed airport. Avis is open Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 6 pm, closed Saturday, and open Sunday from 10:30 am to 6 pm. Enterprise is open Monday through Friday 8 am to 5 pm and closed on Saturday and Sunday. The Elko rental cars for both agencies are parked just outside the terminal, to the right once you exit.
  • Elko streets are wide, paved, and well-maintained. Many of the major roads are two lanes in both directions, with businesses on either side. Those in car rentals in Elko should be on the lookout for cars pulling into traffic from business parking lots.

When you are driving past bars, especially after 11:00 pm, drive defensively. Elko has a high crime rate, so, for those with car rentals in Elko, don’t leave valuables or luggage in your car.
