Top tips for renting a car in Lexington

  • Whether you explore Lexington’s sights, discover the scenic nature of Daniel Boone National Forest to the east of the city, or visit Kentucky’s capital of Frankfort, about a 40-minute drive away, with a rental car you are flexible and free to do whatever you please during your stay in Lexington. For travelers wanting to explore Kentucky’s biggest city, Louisville can also be conveniently explored from Lexington, as it is only a bit over an hour away by car.
  • Blue Grass Airport is just 7 miles outside Lexington and has various rental car agencies onsite, including Alamo, Enterprise, and Hertz, along with some others. The easiest way to begin your time in Lexington is by picking up a rental car directly from there, allowing you to reach the city in about 15 minutes. Travelers can find the agency service desks in the baggage claim area on the first level, and pick-up and drop-off is right next to the terminal.
  • Lexington is famous for its many scenic routes and driving is generally a pleasant experience; however, heavy rain showers, sleet, and ice can be regular occurrences in Lexington and in Kentucky in general, so prepare for some challenging weather conditions. When the roads are drenched by rain showers or ice, slow down considerably and refrain from driving if you don’t feel comfortable doing so, but find a safe place to park and wait until the weather conditions improve. Also make sure to have the headlights on so other cars can see you coming.
  • As in most US cities, rush hour in Lexington is the most intense on weekdays between 8 and 10 am and 5 and 8 pm, but on the weekends there can also be increased traffic around places of interest, such as the Rupp Arena or Keeneland race track. Plan at least 45 minutes ahead if you have a game or race to get to so that traffic will not be an issue.
  • Book your rental car in Lexington at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Supplier choice rental cars in Lexington are around 55% cheaper than other car types, on average
