Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in Kentucky?

Yes, a car rental is most definitely necessary here. You'll be driving on winding country roads that are quieter than busy city streets. This is the state of Kentucky's biggest selling point, and a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of cities like Louisville without sacrificing all of your creature comforts. Kentucky is fairly small, so it's pretty much a case of moving from place to place. There aren't really any places that are more accessible by car than others. Kentucky’s major draw is its mountainous beauty, particularly around the southeast of the state. If you have a few days to spare, there are plenty of places to visit. Get a cheap car rental and enjoy all this region has to offer. If you want to go hiking, check out Natural Bridge State Resort Park or Red River Gorge Geological Area. More scenic destinations include Daniel Boone National Forest, Green River Lakes State Resort Park and Big South Fork National Recreation Area.


Kentucky car rental information

Kentucky is a US state of great natural beauty, with rolling hills, lush forests and winding country roads. Roads are generally fairly well maintained but can be narrow at times, so those driving large vehicles or motorhomes should be aware. There are few urban areas to speak of, the largest being Louisville in the southeast of the state. Roads are generally kept in good condition, but drivers need to beware of mud and ice during winter months – especially along mountain roads. It's important to be aware of weather conditions before you start driving and ensure that your car rental has sufficient traction in these conditions.

Even as you seek cheap rental cars, remember Kentucky has a number of driving laws that are different from most other states, so make sure you're aware. For anyone under the age of 18, special restrictions apply. Those under the age of 16 are not allowed to drive between 11pm and 5 am unless there is an adult in the car who’s at least 21 years old. It’s also illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to drive with any alcohol in their system, while drivers under 21 who are caught driving with a BAC level of 0.02 or higher will have their license suspended. Seatbelts must be worn by all passengers in a car. Children under 4 years old are not required to wear seatbelts if they are properly secured in an approved child safety seat or booster seat that meets national standards. In addition to these, you may need to visit your target city's department of motor vehicles for information on updated local driving laws.

For car rentals in Kentucky, you'll need a valid US or foreign passport. A driver's license from your country of residence if you have one is also required. Otherwise, you may be able to present an international driving permit, which will allow you to go ahead with your car rental in Kentucky. If you hold a valid driver's license from your country of residence but don't have an International Driving Permit, it will be necessary for you to apply for a Kentucky driver’s license.
