Top tips for renting a car in Cincinnati

  • A city that sprawls along the Ohio River and connects to the apex of the Licking River, Cincinnati is best discovered with a rental car. Cincinnati buzzes with an eclectic rustic vibe and is home to many fantastic restaurants and art venues. Whether you plan to escape the city to the world renowned Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden or explore the diverse landscapes the Ohio River has to offer, a rental car will help you maximize your time in town.
  • Cincinnati International Airport, commonly referred to as Northern Kentucky International Airport, is located 13 miles south from the downtown district and takes approximately 20 minutes to drive. A shuttle bus takes you directly from the baggage claim area to the car rental facility, where you will find the counters of many major rental companies such as Hertz, Budget, Enterprise, and Avis.
  • The hills that bless Cincinnati with glorious views also mean that you will experience some unique driving conditions around town. When coming up to any considerable incline, remember to approach at a steady pace and with significant momentum. The mountainous terrain provides an ideal challenge for enthusiastic cyclists, so be cautious of your blind spots and always provide an adequate amount of space.
  • Cincinnati roads become congested between 7 am and 9 am as commuters make their way to work, as well as between 4:30 pm and 7:30 pm. It is advisable to avoid driving during these peak periods of the day and instead enjoy the beautiful riverfront or the long list of activities the city has to offer. Redirecting your driving route to avoid the Brent Spence Bridge, I-75, and I-71 will save you time, especially during the evening rush hour.

If you find yourself on the other side of the Ohio River, consider getting a full tank of gas, as United Dairy Farmers stations located in Fort Wright and Southgate often offer fuel as low as $2 per gallon.

  • If you are going to attend a Cincinnati Reds game at the Great American Ballpark or want to explore the downtown district during the weekend, use the Fountain Square Garage, where you can park for only $7 and are less than a 10-minute walk from the stadium. The Fountain Square Garage is also an ideal location if you are looking to leave your car there overnight, as it has 24-hour security and a maximum charge of $21.
