KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Franklin

  • Getting car rentals in Franklin is the most convenient way to get around the city.While there are many options for transportation, renting a car can be the most convenient option. For one thing, it gives you more freedom and flexibility than public transportation. With Franklin rental cars, you can go where you want and when you want, without having to worry about waiting for buses or trains that may not arrive on time or at all.
  • While Franklin car rentals are so convenient for driving in Franklin, you need to be aware of the laws of driving here. Most importantly, note that the Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) limit is 0.08% for everyone 21 and older and 0.02% for drivers under 21 years old. It's illegal to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs in Tennessee, so make sure you make prior arrangements, like adding a driver to your rental agreement. The addition of a separate driver listed on your rental car agreement is key regarding the local BAC laws in Franklin. Most cheap car rentals in Franklin will allow a secondary driver who can drive your rental car when you have taken alcoholic drinks to avoid legal charges related to DUI.
  • You can get car rentals in Franklin at Terminal Garage 1 at Nashville International Airport. It is located at Huntsville Airport at 1000 Glenn Hearn Blvd SW. If you're looking for a car rental at the Florence Muscle Shoals Airport, look no further than at 2100 Terminal Drive, a location that is a 2min walk from the airport. All airport car rental locations host a variety of companies you can choose from including; Hertz, Enterprise, Budget and Stokes.
  • You can easily find rental cars at various locations in downtown Franklin, most located in popular areas like the Embassy Suites and hotels. Others are located near learning institutions, making it convenient for those visiting the institutions to grab a rental. These locations offer a variety of rental car companies to choose from, so you can easily find a rental car that suits your needs. This is extremely convenient for travelers coming to Franklin City for meetings or conferences, eliminating the need to search for a rental car outside the city. Be sure to book your rental car in advance to ensure that you get the car you want.
  • Franklin is a beautiful city. It's also a very busy one, and it can be easy to get caught up in traffic. Congestion during rush hour especially from 7 am and 6 pm in the evening can lead to slow driving and accidents so it's important that you be careful out there. You should also drive slow in school drop off areas since kids are unpredictable and tend to run across streets without looking.
  • Franklin car rentals offer one-way rentals, allowing customers to pick up a vehicle at one of their locations and drop it off at another. This option can benefit those traveling across the country or looking to move items between cities without making multiple trips. Thus, this arrangement can be convenient and cost-effective if traveling far outside the city. Note that one-way rentals from Franklin may come with additional charges. Be sure to read the rental agreement carefully before signing. Just ensure that you return your rental in the right condition and as stipulated in the agreement to avoid unnecessary charges.
  • Winter months are the most difficult to drive in Franklin, because of the snow and water that pools along roadsides. The snow can make it difficult to see, and the water will splash up onto your windshield, making it even harder to see. This is especially dangerous if you're driving on a road with steep drop-offs or sharp curves. Slushy conditions can cause your tires to slide out from under you when you're trying to turn. Drive slowly and cautiously as it's easy to lose control of your vehicle if you're going too fast for conditions.
  • Book your rental car in Franklin at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in Franklin are around 64% cheaper than other car types, on average

Cons:

I was from out of town. If my friend didn’t let me borrow her credit card, I would not have been able to rent a car. I have a debit/credit card but it was not acceptable and they would not accept my husband’s credit card over the phone. Extremely inconvenient.

I did not receive the vehicle that I reserved. They told me that had to give me an upgraded vehicle and that I had to pay extra $175 for the vehicle because they gave my smaller car to someone else.

Pros:

This center is now inside Embassy Suites. From the front entrance, go left through the lobby and take a left at the first hallway and it's there on the left. I was helped immediately and the employee was kind and quick. He gave me two options based on my reservation and let me choose what I wanted. The car was clean, full tank of gas, and drove well. Return was smooth and simple. I added an extra day and it was no problem at all. Definitely will rent from here again.
