Renting a Car in Nashville: Your Questions Answered

You need a car to navigate Nashville, but renting can be a daunting process. We’ve demystified it by answering some of the most common questions.

What’s the best car for exploring Nashville?

It depends what you need. The good news is, a city as large as Nashville is full of choices. Car rental agencies such as Avis, Dollar, EZ and Thrifty offer a wide selection of cars. Use the Orbitz price comparison feature to find something that’s the right size for your group and the right price for your budget.

Where do I pick my car up?

There are rental outlets all over the city, as well as several companies operating in Nashville International Airport. Determine your pick-up point with the operator.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Tennessee?

Everyone in the US can rent a car from aged 25 and above, while most major operators will offer cars to drivers over 21 with a younger driver surcharge.

What documentation do I need to pick up my car?

Bring your driving license, an International Driving Permit (IDP) if you are from outside the US, and your credit card.

Should I book a car in advance?

In most cases, yes. Advance booking gives you a wider choice, better prices and no cancellation fee. You don’t even have to pay in advance – just bring your card on the day to cover the fees.


Explore Nashville: The Top Experiences in Music City

Although Nashville is full of sights to see, this is a city all about doing. Embrace all of your senses here – Nashville demands to be tasted, heard, felt. With that in mind, we recommend these three essential Nashville experiences, all within easy reach when you have access to a rental car.

Downtown Nashville

There couldn’t be a better nickname for Nashville than Music City. Live music is everywhere you turn in the Downtown neighborhood, where strumming and singing emanate from every bar with space for a stage. Downtown is also the home of the Country Music Hall of Fame, celebrating the artists who’ve already made it.

East Nashville

This is the place to go to experience Nashville’s exploding foodie scene. No shortcuts are taken here – eat pulled pork straight from a hog pit or brisket smoked in hickory. Wash down the delicious meat with a pint of craft-brewed beer from one of Nashville’s countless microbreweries.

12 South

12 South is an increasingly popular residential neighborhood – check out the stunning, wood-paneled homes – but it’s great for a visit, too. Art galleries, bars and a row of mouthwatering restaurants along Granny White Pike make this an engaging spot to explore on any trip to Music City.
