KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Olathe

  • If you will be visiting Olathe, you must get a rental car to help you move around the city with ease. Car rentals in Olathe offer a different level of convenience and flexibility that you don’t always get with public transport. For example, if you want to go for an adventure in Lake Olathe, you can go at any time you want, not depending on bus schedules. In addition, you can visit the neighboring cities such as Kansas City and check out the attractions such as Kansas City Zoo and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum which are about 30 miles away.
  • If you prefer booking electric cheap car rentals in Olathe, you need not worry about where to recharge them. You will find 94 public charging outlet locations in Olathe, 47 of which are free. The different kinds of charging stations include fast, accelerated, and regular ones with the accelerated ones needing you to make a payment before using the service. Some of the easily accessible charging stations in Olathe include Constance St Heritage Park Golf Course, Overland Park, and Independence near the best buy store. All these locations offer you the convenience of always having electric cheap car rentals in Olathe ready for your next adventure.
  • When coming to Olathe via Kansas City Airport, you can choose to pick up your Olathe car rental from the airport instead of coming to the rental shops found in downtown Olathe. The airport has a good number of rental agencies including top-rated rental companies such as Avis, Alamo, Enterprise, Thrifty, and Hertz. Each of these rental companies has a desk at the arrivals terminal where you can talk to their agents and inquire about your rental. From there you can take a shuttle to the car park and pick up your rental car.
  • Driving Olathe car rentals on one-way streets in Olathe can be a bit confusing for drivers who are not used to them. You should be aware of the directional arrows on the road and pay attention to signs indicating the flow of traffic because one-way streets are intended to keep traffic moving in a particular direction. Knowing which way to go on the street is essential to preventing accidents and confusion. You should also anticipate faster speeds on one-way streets.
  • Driving in Olathe is fairly easy, especially when compared to other busy cities such as New York and Chicago. However, it is important that you keep an eye out for cyclists since they share the road with other motorists. Always give them enough space on the road and be sure to double-check your mirrors whenever you’re making a right turn as it can be quite easy to miss them in your blind spot.
  • There are some roads in Olathe that have restrictions in place so it is best to do a route check if you are new to the area. Santa Fe Street is limited to a right turn only from Black Bob Road during the morning and evening rush hours on weekdays. Additionally, Lone Elm Road, which has a 20,000 lb weight restriction, is typically a speedy route to go because you won't see many trucks there. These areas also have high levels of pedestrian activity which will require you to be more careful as you drive cheap car rentals in Olathe.
  • While driving your car rental in Olathe may be fairly easy, you should be aware of traffic during rush hours. Morning rush hour runs from 7 am to 9 am while evening rush hour runs between 4 pm and 6 pm. If possible try to avoid the main highway during these hours as traffic is usually heavy and you risk losing between thirty minutes to an hour waiting on the road. You should also know that winters can get very wet in Olathe and that affects the road conditions. If possible, get winter tires from your rental agency if you will be coming to Olathe during the winter.

Pros:

Nothing. I show up and they have nothing. I reserved a car. There was no car. THEN WHY DID YOU TAKE THE RESERVATION??? The guy behind the counter couldn't care less, laughed and just said "Yeah I don't know why they let you make a reservation because I don't have any cars."

Cons:

The only way this place could improve is if they shut down and declared bankruptcy.

I was able to place an order for a rental car; however, they did not have any cars available. They did call me prior to my arrival at their location and said that the corporate office should have turned off the ability for people to rent online. I also added auto coverage and was not able to cancel the policy. So now, I am stuck paying for something that I never needed.
