Important information about Louisville car hire

There is perhaps no location more synonymous with Louisville, Kentucky, than the Churchill Downs racetrack. Not only is there live racing here but there is also a walking tour and a museum that highlights the history of this magnificent location. Another great spot for hiring a car in Louisville that is synonymous with the city is the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory. A tour of this factory will give visitors a detailed look at the history of this iconic brand. Interstate 65 is the main route north to south in the area and Interstate 64 is the main road east and west for Louisville car rentals. Both Interstates 264 and 265 serve as beltways around the outskirts of the city for economy car rentals. While there is parking available for hiring a car in Louisville, there are quite a few restrictions and very few free spaces available, especially in the central area. Some of the restrictions include not being able to park in certain locations during morning or evening rush hours. With around 15 different car hire locations in Louisville to rent a car, finding a car to rent is quite easy.

Like any major city there can be difficult driving conditions that occur for hiring a car in Louisville during both morning and evening rush hours and this will especially be true around the central Louisville area. One great place that you can visit, located to the southwest of Louisville, is the Fort Knox United States Army Installation. If you have come to Kentucky because of your love of horse racing, the Kentucky Horse Park that is in the city of Lexington east of Louisville is definitely a sight that you must visit with a large group in a people carrier rental. Louisville is a city that is rather spread out and therefore it's not a very walkable city. When you add in all of the attractions that you can see not only around Louisville but in surrounding communities like Lexington and Cincinnati, Ohio, it is very advisable to have a rental car when in Louisville.

It is always a good practice to check in with your car rental company in advance if you would like to take your Louisville car rental across the border. Different agencies may have different requirements, but most allow cross-border travel. Note that to the north, you will be required to provide a non-resident insurance card along with your valid driving license and passport to cross the Canadian border. Crossing the southern border to Mexico will require Mexican Automobile Liability Insurance as well as your license and passport. You can address the specific non-resident insurance card or Mexican insurance requirements for your Louisville car rental with your rental company.

Whether you want to reserve a cheap car rental in Louisville or a luxury car rental in Louisville, the first thing your rental car company will most likely request is a credit card. Most rental companies will want to complete the reservation part of your transaction with a credit card, although some will allow the use of your debit card if you agree to let them hold a deposit from the card. When you return the car, they typically allow alternative payment methods to settle your account, which may include debit card, gift card, cash, or check. Note that the name on your license will be expected to match the name on any cards or checks. Be sure to check in with your chosen company for your car rental in Louisville a few days before you arrive to be clear on their policies regarding alternative forms of payment.

When you pick up your car rental in Louisville, you’ll want to keep in mind a few local driving laws. One interesting law that you will find in Louisville is that the maximum speed limit for cars and trucks is different as trucks must travel slower than cars. If you encounter a Work Enhancement Zone in Kentucky, fines for violations in the area can be double what they are in any other part of the state. The legal limit for drinking alcohol in Kentucky is .08% and texting while driving in the state of Kentucky is against the law. All passengers in the car in Kentucky must wear seatbelts, and children must ride in an approved child car seat. In Kentucky, drivers drive on the right side of the road. You could face a fine and points on your license if you fail to stop at a red light or a stop sign. While it is legal for you to enter an intersection after the light turns yellow, you’ll want to be sure you are in the intersection before it turns red. Right turns on red are permitted as long as you have come to a complete stop and yield to oncoming traffic and any pedestrians. You’ll also be able to turn left on red in your rental car or van rental in Louisville, in specific instances, such as from one one-way street to another one-way street, as long as you yield to pedestrians and other vehicles in the intersection.

For those travelers that are visiting Louisville, Kentucky, from the United States or Canada, you can rent a vehicle with a valid driving license issued by your state or province. The license in question must include your photograph. If the license in question is not in the English language, it is advisable that you also provide an international driver's permit to help the rental car company identify you - especially if your license is in a language other than English. Another alternative is to have your license translated into English and notarised, so you can produce this document with your license at the rental counter. Some agencies will prefer to have a third form of ID, so bringing your passport to the rental office is a good practice as well. Keep in mind that Kentucky requires that all drivers purchase car insurance.
