Top Tips For Renting a Car in Memphis

  • Like so many cities in the U.S., Memphis requires visitors to have a vehicle at their disposal. Without a rental car at hand, you would simply struggle to get around the city as there is very little in the way of public transportation in the city. The main option is taking the public bus that, compared to a rental car, is quite slow and, especially when traveling with a group of people, would be even more expensive than renting in some cases.
  • Planning on picking up a rental car after your flight to Memphis lands? For travelers with flights to Memphis International Airport you will find the rental car counters in the Ground Transportation Center in Terminal B, one level below Baggage Claim.
  • Visitors to Memphis should note that GPS devices will often say that drivers can drive on Memphis’ famed Beale Street, but in actuality the street is blocked off for pedestrian use most hours of the day. Beale Street is one of the most popular attractions in Memphis and, while originally cars could drive on it at all hours, nowadays it is mostly reserved for pedestrian traffic except in the early hours.
  • No two words are dreaded more by drivers than rush hour. Fortunately for visiting drivers to Memphis, the city actually has fairly mild rush hour traffic. The morning rush hour normally lasts from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and in the afternoon it starts up around 4:00 p.m. and finishes shortly after 6:00 p.m.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Memphis for $36 or less
  • Book your rental car in Memphis at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Memphis are around 29% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Premium rental cars in Memphis are around 52% cheaper than other car types, on average
