KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Mankato

  • Using car rentals in Mankato presents numerous benefits compared to relying on public transport. A Mankato car rental offers a time-effective approach since you no longer have to wait for public transportation. You can conveniently reach the remote areas of Mankato's beautiful natural sites that are not well served by public transportation. It is also cost-saving, especially when traveling in a group, since you do not have to purchase multiple bus or train tickets. Additionally, you can plan your schedule according to your preferences without being tied to the schedule of public transportation. You can explore several tourist attractions with Mankato car rentals, including Minneopa State Park, the Red Jacket Trail, and Sibley Park Zoo.
  • If you visit Mankato, you will likely fly into Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport (MSP). MSP has several on-site car rental agencies, with counters on the ground level of the Silver Parking Ramp of Terminal 1 and the ground level of the Purple Ramp of Terminal 2. Upon landing, you can get to these locations using an underground tram. To avoid some rental car agencies' daily surcharge fees on young drivers, consider renting a car when you are at least 25. You must present a government-issued driver's license valid through the period and a proper credit or debit card.
  • Driving in Mankato is relaxed, like in many suburban and small cities. Therefore, you must practice polite driving when using car rentals in Mankato. However, you must also practice defensive driving since you occasionally encounter drivers who disregard traffic laws. Mankato is generally a car-dependent city, as its layout is designed to accommodate cars. However, you must always practice caution when driving to enhance the safety of pedestrians crossing roads and cyclists biking.
  • Using car rentals in Mankato can be challenging due to the heavy traffic experienced during rush hours, typically during morning hours from around 7 am to 9 am and evening hours from 4 pm to 6:30 pm The roads in Mankato commonly affected by heavy traffic during these rush hours include U.S. Route 14, Madison Avenue, Route 169, and Victory Drive. However, you can opt for alternate ways to avoid this heavy traffic, including East Main Street, Stadium Road, Stoltzman Road, and Riverfront Drive. Mankato experiences harsh winters, which make it incredibly challenging for drivers due to the snowy and icy roads, which result in slippery roads and reduced visibility.
