Top tips for renting a car in Columbia

  • Columbia is halfway between Kansas City and St. Louis, which makes it a great gateway for exploring Missouri if you have a Columbia car rental. A set of wheels will allow you to head out to the Devil’s Icebox Trail for some hiking or check out the multiple recreation areas, like the Stephens Lake Park, the Columbia Cosmopolitan, the Eagle Bluffs, or the Shelter Gardens. You can also use your set of wheels to check out the campus of the University of Missouri and other colleges in the region. Take a drive out onto the scenic roads near the Missouri River Valley where the Ozark Mountains change into rolling plains and savannas.
  • If you are flying into Columbia, the closest airport is the Columbia Regional Airport. The car rental office is conveniently located within the main terminal. Simply proceed to the counters located just outside the baggage claim to retrieve your car rental in Columbia.
  • The two main freeways serving Columbia are the I-70 and the US 63. Within the city, there are two main highways, Route 763 and 740. Columbia is well known for the MKT Trail, which allows both pedestrian and cycling traffic across the city. If you’re driving around this trail, be sure to keep your eye out for pedestrians or cyclists with whom you might be sharing the road. Route B and the I-70 experience a great number of car crashes during the year, a reminder to drivers to be vigilant while driving these roadways. The Stadium Blvd is another tricky intersection where drivers should beware.
  • A large congregation of traffic occurs along the Stadium Blvd, particularly during the morning rush hour from 7am to 10am, and then again from 5pm to 7pm. Keep in mind that the city does get snow from December to March. If you’re here during the winter months, practice safe snow driving techniques by driving slowly, alertly and defensively. Allow for extra time on your trips and with your low-beam headlights turned on.
