Top tips for renting a car in Tennessee

  • If you’re driving in Tennessee, the driver and front passenger must wear a seatbelt at all times. Passengers in the back row must also wear seatbelts at all times if they’re seventeen and below. Kids less than a year old should be restrained in a rear-facing car seat, while those between one and three need to be secured in a forward-facing car seat. If your child is below eight and shorter than 4 feet 9 inches, they should be in a booster seat. You can rent each of these child-restraint devices at any Tennessee car rental.
  • Traffic can be frustrating, especially during rush hour. The rush hour in Tennessee is usually between 7:00 and 9:00 am for the morning rush and 4:00 to 6:00 pm for the evening rush. Plan your trip around these hours to avoid being caught up in the Tennessee traffic. If caught up in it, many cities in Tennessee have high-occupancy-vehicle (HOV) lanes on major highways and interstates, which are open to vehicles with at least two passengers and allow you to get through the traffic much faster. They are also available to motorcycles and electric or hybrid cars, making it a good idea to rent an electric vehicle in Tennessee.
  • You can book your Tennessee car rental using debit or credit cards. American Express, Discover Network, VISA, and MasterCard cards will be readily accepted, as long as the credit card is in your name and presented alongside your valid driver’s license. For debit card users, you need to be at least twenty five and ready to be taken through a creditworthiness check. Also, only debit cards bearing MasterCard and VISA logos are readily accepted. Cash is not accepted when booking rentals in Tennessee but will be taken when clearing any balances at the end of your rental period.
