Important information about Knoxville car rentals

Knoxville, Tennessee is located on the banks of the Tennessee River and at the intersection of I-40 and I-75. It is home to the flagship campus of the University of Tennessee, the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, two art museums, and several historic sites. Situated just three miles from town, Knoxville Urban Wilderness is a recreational nature area where visitors can hike, mountain bike, canoe, kayak, and enjoy the forest playground. Whether you are traveling solo and want an electric car rental or have a big group that needs a passenger van rental, ten locations for rental cars in Knoxville ensure that you will find the right car rental solution for your trip.

Definitely. Car rentals in Knoxville are your ticket to the many natural and historical attractions in the surrounding area. The downtown area is very walkable, and with six public parking lots, there are plenty of places to park your Knoxville car rental and explore areas like Market Square and Old City on foot. Within a one-hour drive, you will find the town of Pigeon Forge, home to Dollywood. Dolly Parton’s Appalachian-themed amusement park/water park/museum is a celebration of the region and of the country music icon herself. Just a few miles south of Dollywood, you will find Gaitlinburg, the gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. From here, you can take your Knoxville car rental to the Rocky Top Trail or experience the Blue Ridge Parkway, known as "America’s Favorite Drive." The Knoxville Civil War Trail starts at Fort Dickerson on Chapman Highway and takes you to battle sites and various outposts of the American Civil War. Be sure to check local traffic before heading out for a drive as roads can become crowded during peak tourism season and you will want to be prepared. Closer to town, destinations such as the Knoxville Urban Wilderness and the Dogwood Arts Trails and Gardens offer parking and are most easily accessed with your cheap car rental.

Throughout the U.S., driving is done on the right side of the road. With your Knoxville rental car, you will find that streets and highways are well-marked with signs that indicate speed limits, driving restrictions, and directions. All passengers must wear safety belts, whether they sit in the front or rear seats. Avoid drinking and driving, as it is illegal and will result in fines, arrest, or revocation of your license. For the latest updates to traffic rules, check the Department of Motor Vehicles to safely operate your Knoxville rental car.

When you pick up your rental car in Knoxville and throughout your trip, U.S. law requires that you carry a valid driver’s license issued by the government of your home country. While Tennessee requires only your driver’s license, some U.S. states also require a valid passport for car rental so it is wise to keep this handy as well.
