KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Parkersburg

  • Renting a car from one of the top car rentals in Parkersburg would be wise if you intend to check out as many local attractions as you can. This is because, with a rental car, you’ll have the opportunity to travel directly, comfortably, and swiftly from one fun attraction to another. You’ll also easily reach attractions in neighboring towns like Vienna, Lubeck, Reno, Harrisville, Sissonville, Saint Albans, and Coal Fork.
  • The nearest airport to Parkersburg is Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Airport (PKB), 13 miles away. Among the notable car rentals in Parkersburg, only Hertz has a counter at this airport. The counter for this agency is located within walking distance of the baggage. Hence you won’t need transportation to get to it. Alternatively, you can rent a vehicle from Enterprise. Although it has no counter at the airport, it offers a free shuttle service from the airport to its offsite location.
  • In Parkersburg, you will enjoy a smooth driving experience, given that most road users in this city adhere to road regulations. However, you should keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you, given that not all motorists follow road rules. You should also look out for pedestrians. Although jaywalking is not common, some individuals cross the road unexpectedly, even at points with no crosswalks, expecting not to be hit.
  • Like other towns with relatively significant populations, Parkersburg experiences rush hour traffic. In the morning, from 7:00 am to 9:00 am, the roads heading into the city face slight traffic, while in the evening, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, the roads heading into the neighborhoods face minor snarl-ups. If you must drive during these hours, check the traffic conditions of the roads you intend to use.
