Memphis car rental information

There are more than ten car rental locations in Memphis and the surrounding area, so you’ll have a variety of options from which to choose upon arriving to the region. Your car rental in Memphis will grant you easy access to some of the city’s top attractions, like the Memphis Zoo Aquarium, the Museum of Science & History – Pink Palace, and Mud Island Park. If you’d like to explore the areas in the city by foot, you can take advantage of the 24/7 parking options that are available. When you’re ready to take a day trip or explore areas outside the city limits, you can simply hop on one of the nearby major roadways like Interstates 69 and 40.

There are a broad number of parking garages and parking lots that are available throughout the city of Memphis. Additionally, many hotels will have parking options for guests. With a plethora of parking choices, securing a cheap car rental in Memphis becomes an effective way to explore the city with autonomy. If you’re traveling with a group, you can take advantage of the walkability of the downtown neighborhood. You can also pile into your passenger van rental and head out for a day of hiking at Hatchie National Wildlife Refuge or Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park, both of which are within an hour’s drive of the city center. A Memphis car rental also makes city attractions accessible, such as the popular Graceland, the former home of Elvis Presley.

When you opt for a Memphis car rental, you’ll want to be sure you’re acting responsibly during your rental term and following the city’s traffic laws. For instance, as with other regions throughout the United States, Memphis law dictates that individuals with a BAC, or blood alcohol content, of .08% or higher are prohibited from operating a motor vehicle. Those who opt for car rentals in Memphis should also note that all individuals riding in a car, including the driver, must use a properly fastened seatbelt. Additionally, drivers must stay alert to speed limit changes on roadways; where no limit is posted, drivers are instructed to drive at speeds typically posted for school zones. That said, prior to leaving for your trip, it’s smart to check with Memphis’s Department of Motor Vehicles for recent law changes.

All travelers will need to be at least 21 years old, regardless of whether you’re hoping to secure an economy car rental or a luxury car rental in Memphis. Some rental car companies may require that renters are at least 25 years old or may charge an additional young drivers fee for renters who are aged 21 through 24. Drivers must also hold a valid government-issued driver’s license. If you are visiting from another country, a driver’s license issued by your home country and your passport should be sufficient to obtain a car rental in Memphis. However, if your license is in a language other than English, you’re encouraged to get an International Drivers Permit.
