Top tips for renting a car in Knoxville

  • There is much to explore in and around Knoxville, so why not make the most out of your holiday and rent a car to gain the most flexibility? It will not only be easier to whizz through the city of Knoxville and visit the zoo, the Memorial Park, or the local golf club, but travelers also get the opportunity to venture out and discover the hidden secrets of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, for instance, which is just under an hour away.
  • McGhee Tyson Airport is about 14 miles from Knoxville center, and the easiest way is to rent a car directly from their on-site agencies, including Hertz, Avis, or Alamo. This way you can start your time in Knoxville hassle-free and will be in the heart of the city in less than half an hour via the US-129 N.
  • Whoever is visiting Knoxville in the winter time should be prepared to drive on ice, as snow is a regular companion of the cold months here. Ensure the rental car has winter tires on and adjust your speed, as snow and rain can turn the streets into icy slides. Sudden braking or accelerating should also be avoided; but with the proper preparation, even the winter in Knoxville is nothing to worry about.
  • Even though the city is not as clogged up as other major US cities, rush hour can still mean congested roads, and it is advised to avoid driving through the city between 8-9am and 4-6pm. Especially the interstates 40 and 640 can be congested during peak times and should be avoided if possible.

  • Speed limits are posted on the right-hand side of the road. If no clearly posted sign is visible, the general regulations permit 30 mph in residential areas, 55 mph on two-lane roads, and up to 70 mph on interstates and freeways. Always adjust your speed to the prevailing weather and road conditions.

Gas stations like Pilot or Sam’s Club also offer rates as low as $1.90, so if you want to save money, look for the best rates available and start your hunt for the right gas stations well in advance.

  • As in most US cities, on-street parking is metered in Knoxville and is free on Sundays and holidays in most areas -- simply check the designated sign. There are also many parking lots and garages available in downtown and around, such as the Dwight Kessel Garage, which costs around $7 per day, or the Promenade Garage with its daily rate of about $5.
