KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Fargo

  • Located in Cass County, North Dakota, just off Interstate 29, is Hector International Airport (FAR). Once you pick up Fargo car rentals from Enterprise, Alamo, Payless, Avis, Budget, National, or Hertz, your drive to downtown Fargo will take approximately 12 minutes, during favorable traffic conditions. It’s important to familiarize yourself with various traffic laws in North Dakota, including common traffic violations, to ensure you’re in keeping with the state driving rules while in Fargo. For example, under North Dakota law, driving without wearing a seat belt is an offense. You must also yield for all emergency service vehicles, cyclists, or pedestrians at intersections, crosswalks, four-way stops, and when traversing or entering a roadway from a driveway.
  • Fargo is largest city in North Dakota. It serves as home to Football Championship Subdivision national powerhouse North Dakota State University. Fargo is a must-add locale to your travel bucket list. If you’re up to a 5-hour scenic drive, the Native American National and State Scenic Byway that snakes along Lake Oahe from Cannon Ball into South Dakota is a good place to start. The 35-mile-long drive that includes various stops at Native American sites along the Standing Rock National Native American Byway that begins on Interstate 90 near Exit 265 is a must-try.
  • North Dakota’s scenic byways and backways provide ample opportunities to experience the state’s varied scenery, from the Pembina Gorge to the Little Missouri River and more. However, Fargo receives nearly 52 inches of snowfall annually, which extends throughout winter and sometimes into spring between April and May. While there is no mandatory chain law in North Dakota, winterizing cheap car rentals in Fargo with studded or snow tires for much-needed traction is permitted between October 15 and April 15 each year.
  • Fargo is home to the Red River Zoo and several historical landmarks such as Fargo Theatre and Bonanzaville USA. There are also a number of interesting cities and towns near Fargo that you should visit while on vacation. Spend the day at Pelican Lake in northern Minnesota or hike the Paul Bunyan Trail in in Bemidji, MN. All this is possible with a rental car.
  • Hector International Airport is located in Fargo, ND. Fargo is a fast-growing community and home to North Dakota University. Rental car agencies are conveniently located in the terminal. Passengers can rent a car from a number of companies including Enterprise, Alamo, Hertz, and Avis.
  • Fargo is a farming town. To be safe and avoid accidents, keep a clear distance from trucks that are carrying crops like beets and corn. Fargo can get really bad snowstorms in the winter months, so drivers must be prepared. If you visit the area during ice and snow season, be sure to keep a survival kit in your rental car, which should include a blanket, flashlight, food, and water.
  • Morning rush hour in Fargo begins at around 6:30 a.m. However, it gets busiest between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. In the evening traffic can get somewhat congested between the hours of 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. It can get especially busy on Main Avenue and on I-94 around Sheyenne Street.

It was the Ford Edge. Hard to lock up. Alarm went off! Alarm would not set up - spent 30 minutes trying to figure this one out. Finally after closing the rear opening on the SUV for the third time, the alarm was able to be set. So, it wasn’t Hertz, it was Ford who had a problem. I would NEVER buy a Ford Edge.

The first car they gave me look like it had been in an accident, with a huge gash in the front bumper. And, they gave me a car with no license plates. The dealer sticker on the rear window was several months old. Was worried the whole time that I might get pulled over. The per day rate was extremely expensive. Most I’ve ever paid rent a compact.

Fargo was GREAT! But, when we dropped off in Denver, the person did not seem to know anything. We wanted to extend a few hours and drop off at the airport. He had no idea how to do that. When I asked if there was an additional cost to drop off at the airport all he could tell me was "I don't think so". I really needed a definite answer and he could not give me one.
