Top tips for renting a car in Wichita

  • A rental car is the most comfortable and cost-effective way of exploring not only the city of Wichita, but also the surrounding state of Kansas. With a car, you can explore at your own pace Wichita’s main points of interest, such as the Old Town area or the Tanganyika Wildlife Park, which is just 15 miles from the center. Hop into the car for a road trip to Oklahoma City, which is about 160 miles south of Wichita.
  • All the major car rental companies, including Alamo, Avis, and Budget, can be found at Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport (ICT), which is only about 7 miles west of the city center. The rental car desks are situated near the Baggage Claim area of the main terminal, and the rental cars are parked on the first floor of the parking garage.
  • Driving in Wichita is pretty straightforward and, while downtown can get a bit crowded, there are many places where you can drive and park your car. Drivers are allowed to take a right turn on a red light, but always give pedestrians and bicyclists the right of way. Summer gets very hot, so make sure you get a car with good A/C. Tornadoes are common in Kansas, so if you encounter one either steer away from its path or seek shelter immediately.
  • Traffic in Wichita is very mild, especially compared to other big U.S. cities. The roads are more crowded during rush hour (between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.), but as long as you avoid driving during those time frames you can easily drive even the longer commutes done in under 30 minutes. You may find there’s more congestion in the winter since the weather can get a bit rough, causing more accidents than normal.
  • Book your rental car in Wichita at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Wichita are around 31% cheaper than other car types, on average
