KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Lynchburg

  • Lynchburg car rentals are your best bet for exploring neighboring cities’ vast attractions. If you are in Lynchburg, there are plenty of places to visit with the convenience of a vehicle. Consider exploring the Frontier Culture Museum and the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum in Staunton. It will take about 1h 18min to get to Frontier Culture Museum and approximately 1h 23min to the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum, which are about 72 and 74 miles away from the city center, respectively. You may also consider exploring the Salem Witch Village, located approximately 638 miles away in Salem.
  • Those arriving in Lynchburg through the Amtrak train station who need to explore the city and its neighboring regions can consider renting a vehicle. Cheap car rentals in Lynchburg can be accessed at the city’s Amtrak train station. The station has some renowned car rental agencies close to it, such as Hertz, Avis, and Enterprise, among others. You’ll not need to board taxis deeper into town to find a suitable rental vehicle for your needs. Therefore, if you need to access destinations fast from the train stations, consider getting a cheap car rental from the car rental agencies near the train station.
  • When driving cheap car rentals in Lynchburg, consider being keen on cyclists since you’ll be sharing the road. You’ll need to change lanes when overtaking a cyclist unless the road is exceptionally wide. You should also expect to find two cyclists riding side by side as it is acceptable in the bicycle law. Additionally, cyclists have the same rights as drivers; therefore, they give way to them if they have the right of way. Following these bicycle rules will keep you safe on the roads in Lynchburg as you enjoy touring the city with your rental vehicle.
  • Lynchburg sits at the heart of Virginia, making it the ideal launching point if you’re hoping to explore the state. Just a couple of hours east of the city is Richmond, the state’s capital, and in just over an hour, you can get to Roanoke. Having a car rental in Lynchburg ensures that these cities are within reach. Better yet, a vehicle gives you both the means and the necessary cargo space to make a day trip of some of the great hikes offered in the state’s Appalachian Mountains. You can pack your gear and head off in the early hours of the morning to tackle great trails in the Shenandoah National Park, about an hour north of Lynchburg.
  • After you’ve secured a Lynchburg car rental through KAYAK, the next step is picking it up upon arrival. There are a few rental car locations that have stand-alone pick-up locations in the city, including a Hertz on Old Forest Rd. and a handful of Enterprise locations on Old Forest Rd., Forest Rd. and Ward Rd. If you fly into Lynchburg Regional Airport/Preston Glenn Field (LYH), you can collect your vehicle there. Avis, Budget, and National all have service desks within the airport’s passenger terminal next to the baggage claim—after you’ve checked in, you can simply head to the adjacent parking lot where your car will be waiting for you.
  • Lynchburg, Virginia has a quaint downtown area and a number of attractions that are ideal for children. Because of this, you’ll find young families in the city hoping to explore some of the museums and other sites of interest. Be sure to keep an eye on the road while navigating some of these more visited spaces and be sure you check all your mirrors as you’re backing out of parking spaces.
  • Rush hour peaks between about 7:30am and 8am during the week and commuters will encounter congested roadways around the city. In the evenings, you can expect post-work rush hours between about 4pm and 6pm.

Cons:

We got a car that did not have a manual with information on how to access the controls. The car honked every time we tried to use the cruise control. And it took forever to get the ad by Serius XM to go off the screen. We finally went online to find the car manual and were then able to locate and use the controls. The car worked well after that. More importantly, the people at Enterprise couldn’t have been nicer to deal with.

The sales rep Chuck was exceptional in making sure we had a vehicle with enough space to safely and comfortably move our son into college at Yale. We drove from VA to CT without any issues! While the van I reserved wasn’t available Chuck made sure this mom had no additional worries, I am so glad he suggested this vehicle, and was so professional and kind the entire time. Great Customer Service is alive and well!

The Avis staff wasn't expecting my arrival at the reservation time. I had to wait for the agent to come back from the lot and then he had to call around to find my reservation. Similarly, the drop off felt chaotic...I didn't know who to return the car to...and I still haven't received a final invoice to confirm there were no charges.

We were pulling into the lot to pick up our rental and someone called saying there was no car available for us. However, there were tons of care in the lot. When asked about the cars, the person at the desk stated they were reserved for other customers, yet, we also had a reservation and no car was given to us. Disappointed is an understatement.

Pros:

Car was nice, clean, and comfortable.

Cons:

Rate at pickup was about $70 more than rate quoted. (This was quickly fixed.) Drop-off point was a Mazda Dealership - there wasn't any signage at all. I had to ask the sales guys if I was in the right place and, even after they pointed me to the right place, the only "signage" was a COVID notice on the door and a rug on the floor INSIDE the facility. When a customer is trying to return property you by a specific deadline, this additional stress is not a good thing.

I originally had a reservation for a Saturday, but I arrived and there was no car available for me to rent. I had to scramble to borrow a car for a few day. They did work to provide a car the following Monday so that helped a bit, but they set it up as a brand new reservation and the price per day was $60 more per day then my original reservation. I didn't realize the price had changed until I dropped it off at the end of my trip. They said they couldn't fix anything after the rental contract had ended. The whole process seemed very hap hazard and would have left me in a huge lurch if I didn't have a friend I could borrow a car from for a few days.
