Tennessee car rental information

The road conditions in Tennessee are pretty good. There aren't really any major highways or thruways but there's enough of a network to get to most places without having to take the interstate (which is free). During summer, it can get hot and humid, and in winter, it gets cold, so chains are necessary if you want to drive in the mountains. The places that do get snow have the appropriate roads for it and are plowed if necessary. If you're visiting during winter, then we would recommend renting a 4x4 car or one with all wheel drive. Other than that, any car will do because there aren't many major highways.

While driving in Tennessee, there are some basic laws that you should follow. Some important ones include keeping your lights on at night (which is pretty standard), and also honking if a car pulls out in front of you. This is the safest thing to do because there aren't really any shoulder lanes here so most people end up slamming on their breaks. However, by honking, you can prevent them from doing that and keep them from running into your car. This state also has a fairly low drunk driving limit, which is 0.08% so it's better to not drink at all while behind the wheel. If you're found with a BAC above this limit, you’ll get fined and/or have your license suspended.

While in Tennessee, you need to have a driver's license and a credit card for your car rental. If you don't, then there are other methods of payment like cash or paying online with the company's website. If your driver's license was issued by a state that is part of the United States, then it will be accepted as a form of ID. If it was issued by another country, then you'll either need your passport or an International Driver's Permit, which can be obtained from AAA offices in Tennessee. There are also countries that have an agreement with the United States so they can exchange driver licenses. If you're from one of those countries like Canada, Japan, or Great Britain, then you might not even need a full International Driver's Permit for your car rental.

Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in Tennessee?

While in Tennessee, it's worth considering a car rental, and fortunately, you can easily get cheap rental cars. Since most interesting places to visit are out of Knoxville, it's a good option if you have a car rental for easy access. You'll end up paying a lot more on the bus in order to get around as well as needing to wait or walk large distances due to a lack of reliable public transportation services. Going for a cheap car rental is convenient because if you're visiting Wears Valley, for instance, which is quite far from Knoxville, you can just get in your car and drive, whereas if you had to take public transport or the bus, it would end up being a lot more expensive and hectic.
