KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Paducah

  • A car rental in Paducah, Kentucky, can offer several advantages over other transport options. Renting a car allows you to explore Paducah and its surrounding areas at your own pace. You can easily visit attractions, restaurants, and other points of interest without relying on public transportation schedules or availability. In addition, having a rental car allows you to easily access remote areas, such as state parks or countryside locations, where public transportation might not be available or convenient. More importantly, renting a car gives you ample storage space for luggage, equipment, or any purchases you make during your trip.
  • Barkley Regional Airport (PAH) lies 14 miles west of Paducah and serves as the primary airport for the region. Consider reserving your car at this facility if you intend to leap into the adventure as soon as you land. The car rental facility at Barkley Regional Airport (PAH) is typically located near the terminal building, making it convenient for travelers to pick up and drop off rental vehicles. Only Hertz and Enterprise operate their counters at PAH, with the former offering pickup and shuttle services to its off-airport locations.
  • While the driving culture in Paducah, Kentucky, is generally courteous and respectful, there are still instances of common traffic violations that drivers and pedestrians may commit. For example, while pedestrians have the right of way at marked crosswalks, some may not always use them correctly or wait for the appropriate signal.

Furthermore, parking lots near commercial areas or shopping centers can have pedestrians walking between cars and across driving lanes. Drivers need to be vigilant in these areas to avoid potential accidents.

4.4 Mediocre

Nov 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff at pick up was okay. He refused to attempt to use some of ny credit cards causing another passanger to use theirs and then charge more for me to be a driver. Drop off was confusing. The location is unmanned and the drop box is unmarked and honestly looks like a trash can. The price was ridiculously expensive for a very basic car for a mere 5 hours.

Cons:

Better pricing and more payment options.

KAYAK

Pros:

Car clean and ready to go

Cons:

We scheduled car for 8 am pick up but the hours of operation were from 9 to 5 so we had to wait until 9 to get rental. I believe this has happened To others also. So something should be done to get the business hours correctly listed so the rentals are no scheduled for 8 am when they are not open.

Jul 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was very clean.

Cons:

I was told that the car could not be returned after hours. When I arrived the next morning as scheduled, no one was there there was a self return process in place. I could have retuned the car the night before which would have saved me time and hassle.

Pros:

It was National so until I realized the 2 were connected I didn't respond to this. Very nice upgrade, fit entire family.

Cons:

Both keys were on the same key ring which didn't allow for us to tuck one safely away. The GPS system badly needed updating, it took us in the wrong direction twice and we stopped using it.
