KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Louisville

  • Are you ready to find cheap car rentals in Louisville for some adventure? There are a few unique driving rules to keep in mind. One of them is that the maximum speed limit for cars is different from that of trucks. Trucks must move slower than cars. Texting while driving is also illegal. You risk paying a fine if you fail to stop at a red light or a stop sign. The limit for drinking alcohol and driving in Kentucky is .08%. Therefore, you might consider leaving your rental car behind if you plan on drinking. Besides, there are restrictions on where you can park your rental car in Louisville during morning or evening rush hours.
  • If you’d like to explore other areas with cheap car rentals in Louisville, you might need to check with your rental company. Different rental companies have varying cross-border travel policies. However, most companies allow cross-border travel. However, you must show a non-resident insurance card, a passport, and a valid driver’s license if you want to travel to the north across the Canadian border. If you're going to cross the southern border to Mexico, you will need your license, passport, and Mexican Automobile Liability Insurance.
  • Louisville has so much to offer when it comes to adventure, especially when you have the correct type of car. Most people renting cars in Louisville go for full-size vehicles. These cars have impressive features such as leather seats, powerful engines, and sunroofs. There are also spacious, so you have enough space for suitcases and kids. Most people in Louisville tend to go for the Chevrolet Malibu and Hyundai Accent. Lucky for you, there are around 15 car rental locations in Louisville, making it easy to find a car.
  • Ready to rent a car on your road trip to Louisville? Instead of using public transport, rent a car for an ultimate sense of freedom while exploring this city. There is no better way to see all that Louisville has to offer than by roaming around its charming streets. From the Highlands to the Ohio River to Cherokee Park, the city has plenty of sights to discover by car.
  • If you are flying into Louisville, it’s good to know that there are two airports: Louisville International and Bowman Fields. When you land at Louisville International Airport you will find the car rental counters on-site at the airport’s main Terminal. Once you get into arrivals, the car rental counters are located on the lower level near baggage claim.
  • Drivers new to the state of Kentucky will have to navigate various interstates, county roads, and city streets, along with rural and secondary roads. Louisville has many bicycle lanes to cater for its large bicycling community, so look out for cyclists in the city. During winter, be prepared for heavy snowfall and decrease your speed when driving in tough conditions.
  • Driving on Louisville’s crowded interstates during rush hour, particularly around Spaghetti Junction where three major interstates meet and merge, means you will encounter heavy traffic at some point. You should avoid driving in the morning, from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and during the afternoon between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm. On Thursdays you can expect delays during the evening commute on Thursdays, while on Friday mornings the rush hour is much lighter.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Louisville for $55 or less
  • Book your rental car in Louisville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Louisville are around 9% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Compact rental cars in Louisville are around 62% cheaper than other car types, on average

I was offered a really nice van as the "Manager's Special". It was very clean and drove well. I liked picking the van up at an easy to find location, rather than getting lost at the airport. And the price was excellent! Thank you Hertz! I'll be back when I need another rental.

This was the SDF airport Budget rental counter. They told me I was unable to rent without a credit card on hand. Fair, I didn't know that was necessary. They then directed me 10 miles away to a Budget location they said could take my debit card. When I arrived, the second location was filthy, stinky and creepy. The clerk there told me they couldn't take debit card either, and the airport clerk probably told me that just to get rid of me. Because there were no accommodations or ways for someone without a credit card on hand to even consider renting a car, we had to call me elderly mother to drive 5 hours to pick us up so we could drive another five hours back to Pittsburgh. Miserable experience, I will never even try to rent from Budget again, and I will likely never rent a car again at all.

Pickup time was Sunday at 12 noon. Arrived 12:02. Guy said we closed at 12 and wouldn’t give me rental. Customer service sent me to another location guaranteeing vehicle. Drove to this location to find no rental to meet 7 passengers. Drive to inconvenient third Budget location and had to pay more. Needless to say, extremely late to destination because lazy worker at first location would not give me the keys. He was very rude as well. Pathetic customer service. I will never rent from Budget/Avis again.

Picking up at the airport was really difficult of you are not familiar with the process. I called for instructions on where to go and got nowhere with the call center. The call was then dropped. The local folks on the other hand were great - friendly, professional and helpful.

Nov 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Agent at desk was friendly

Cons:

I was assigned a car but it was not in it's location. I had to find an employee to find another car for me, which took about 15 minutes. The car I received was dirty and definitely wasn't cleaned beyond pre-covid standards. I'm not a germ freak, but greasy fingerprints on the screen and doors and a greasy feeling steering wheel are just nasty.

KAYAK

Pros:

The price and the vehicle was great.

Cons:

At pickup, the vehicle was not ready, and had to wait. The help desk seemed to not want to be working. There was no information given about the return of the vehicle. I had to ask about return from the man working the gate, but even that was not enough. At return, there was no one to close the transaction, Just a sign saying to leave the keys in the car. I had to work with customer service for the next two days to get the extra daily charges removed from my credit card account because no one at the drop off location closed the account. I'll not rent from Thrifty and associated companies again.

Waited 90 min in line to pick up a car, even though I prepaid. Oil maintenance light came on 400 miles into my trip. I called Payless and I was told to get car serviced and save my receipts. Not and ideal situation during a vacation. We will see if I actually get reimbursed….

Cons:

Use a different company. My flight from Afghanistan had engine problems and we did emergency landing and forced. To spend night in Bulgaria. I called in as soon as plane landed to cancel or pushback one day but agent said no help. When I finally got to Car Rental in SDF they double charged me and the rates went up to a premium of 85 dollars a day. But thank God we didn’t crash and all of us military got home to the USA safe and next time I just will not book their Kayak

Pros:

I loved driving the Ford Taurus! It was very nice and reminded me of a luxury car with the cream leather interior. The checkout process was very easy and quick! The checkin was even faster! Plus the value was amazing through Kayak.

Cons:

They don't do a walkthrough with the car. My rental had a damaged console in the middle, stains on the carpet, and a burn mark. I didn't want to be held responsible so I took pictures.

Went to rental office and no SUVs were available. We had already waited an hour in line and had to leave the office. Went to the airport and had to pay full price for an suv rental. The car had not been cleaned. It drove well. Staff was nice at the airport Avis facility.

Car had a screw in the tire and could not call directly to any Avis stores to find a replacement. Came in to the Franklin Tn location ant Embassey Suites and was told there was a car coming in and after two days finally left with no car replacement! Customer service was terrible. The maintenance light came on had to find a Avis rental to bring it in. All the cars were filthy dirty. Many smelled like cigarettes. Will not use Avis again.

Terrible vehicle. The exact opposite of the 'economy' class that we reserved. Got 26mpg. We are used to 54mpg. Rolling catastrophe. Dirty inside and out. Smelled bad. Worse design. Should be junked.
