KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Sioux Falls

  • Sioux Falls is conveniently at the intersection of Interstate 90 and Interstate 29. Driving in and around the city is easy thanks to the availability of a well-maintained transport network. The I-90 links Sioux Falls to Chicago on the east. I-90 interchanges to the I-35 leading to Minneapolis. On the other hand, the I-29 interchanges with the I-80, leading to Omaha and Nebraska. It also connects Sioux Falls to Kansas City on the north. 41st Street and 12th Street are the major east-west roads. Major shopping areas, attractions, restaurants, and businesses are along these roads. Interstate 229 runs from the southwest to the northeast. 12th Street also provides a route to downtown. Exits 83 and 399 can help you reach the airport.
  • Drive conservatively on some of the roads in Sioux Falls known to be dangerous. 41st Street and I-90 are the most dangerous roads due to reckless driving. The intersection of Louise Avenue and 41st Street is also prone to heavy traffic congestion. Drivers often run red lights at the intersection of Sycamore Avenue and 26th Street. While driving around the state, be careful when in Pennington and Custer Counties, which are known to have the most dangerous roads in the state. They include Needles Highway and the scenic Iron Mountain Road. The latter has winds and curves that require cautious driving.
  • Avoid operating cheap car rentals in Sioux Falls if you plan on drinking, as this can land you a DUI charge. The BAC limit in Sioux Falls is 0.08%. Having an open alcohol bottle in your vehicle is also illegal. Sioux Falls also has its share of aggressive drivers who run red lights and speed on highways, so stay alert while on the road. Teen drivers can drive in Sioux Falls between 6 am to 10 pm without the accompaniment of guardians. However, a legal guard should be present for you to drive between 10 pm and 6 am.
  • Nature lovers will enjoy a visit to Falls Park, the Butterfly House ,and the Great Plains Zoo in the city of Sioux Falls. There are also numerous scenic drives that you can take in and around the Great Plains. This includes a short drive to Omaha, Nebraska along Lewis & Clark Scenic Byway with its views of lakes, rivers, hills, and farmland.
  • Sioux Falls Regional Airport is located in eastern South Dakota. Many large airlines operate out of this facility which offers connections to and from most major airports. For added convenience, there are restaurants, shops and car rental agencies at the airport. With offices really close to baggage claim, you’ll find it easy to pick up and return your rental.
  • There are several roundabouts in the city that are supposed to help with traffic backup and improve safety. Sioux Falls is also a pedestrian-friendly town with narrow lanes throughout the downtown and shopping areas. In the winter months this city can get hit with lots of ice and snow, which require safer and more cautious driving practices.
  • Peak travel times in Sioux Falls are similar to those in other cities. In the morning commuters typically travel from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. However, the roads have the most congestion from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. In the evenings you’ll want to limit your travel between the hours of 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. because of rush hour traffic.
  • Book your rental car in Sioux Falls at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Sioux Falls are around 22% cheaper than other car types, on average

4.4 Mediocre

Jan. 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

This should have been very easy. It is a small town and usually courteous and friendly.

Cons:

Due to bad weather I had to re-route my trip from Minneapolis to Omaha. I was travelling to SD for a funeral. Sadly when I tried to get online at the airport for a car at the airport it only showed availability for the city. Computers rule! counter at airport was not helpful. I had to call to get help. Then when I got to Sioux Falls because I had to rent a one way drop off they made me drive back to Sioux Falls one day later to switch cars. It seemed like they could have given my car for Monday to the one-way and just let me keep the car that I came from Omaha in. It was all a big mess!!

Pros:

Upgraded to a nicer vehicle for just a few dollars more. Car was excellent, had many features and was fun to drive. I hated to turn the car back in. It was a great experience.

Cons:

Drop off was confusing. The time for my drop off was before the counter opened - I was dropping off around 5:00 a.m. Other rental car agencies had signs about where to park the car for drop off. Avis had no signs. Eventually after circling the lot three times, I parked the car in a Avis spot. I figured they would figure out that it was a drop off.
