Top tips for renting a car in Minneapolis

  • Rent a car at the Minneapolis airport upon your arrival to get to your destination fast. It only takes a 20-minute drive into the city center and you can explore one of the “Twin Cities” of Minnesota at your own pace. If you want to explore surrounding areas like the Fort Snelling State Park, which is about 10 miles from the city center, or St. Paul, Minnesota’s capital, a rental car will get you out and about most efficiently.
  • Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport has various car rental companies at your disposal. Travelers arriving at Terminal 1 Lindbergh should proceed to the second or third levels for car rental service desks. If landing at Terminal 2 Humphrey, go to the ground floor, where you will find the Ground Transport Center. Both terminals feature the same companies, including Hertz, National, and Avis.
  • Congestion and traffic jams are a regular issue in Minneapolis, especially during peak times (around 7-9 AM and 4-7 PM). To ease the congestion a little, traffic control agents are in place and it is pivotal to follow their orders and to only cross an intersection if you can make it all the way across without blocking the road. Also note that many streets in Minneapolis are one way, so be careful and watch out for the signs to avoid going in the wrong direction.
  • Winters in Minnesota can bring lots of snow, sleet, and ice, so be aware of that when traveling to Minneapolis during the colder months. The city is also known to be best equipped for dire weather conditions, but streets can still become narrower due to snow ploughs pushing the snow to both sides. At intersections, it may also be harder to see other vehicles around the corner when the snow is piled high, so proceed with caution at intersections.
