KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Jackson

  • Jackson is not only the capital of Mississippi but also one of the state’s most populated cities. Many travelers come to Jackson, Mississippi for either leisure or business, and a Jackson car rental will give you the luxury of attending your business meetings and sightseeing at your own pace rather than figuring out which of the city’s limited bus routes will get you where you want to go or spending extra money and time on rideshares. Be sure to check out historic sites that were at the epicenter of the nation’s human rights movement, like the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, the Medgar Evers House, Freedom Corner, and the Greyhound Bus Station Freedom Trail Marker. With a car, you can take a road trip outside of the city limits to the Bienville National Forest 50 miles away, the Delta National Forest 75 miles away, or nearby to the Ross R Barnett Reservoir 22 miles away.
  • Pick up your Jackson rental car directly from Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport (JAN) to save time and money. Most car rental companies are located on-site at the Car Rental Center in Terminal Level 1 across from the baggage claim. Some additional companies offer complimentary shuttle services, which you can catch directly outside the main terminal doors. Look for a brown sign indicating the Rental Car Shuttles. Then you can drive your car rental in Jackson 6 miles into Downtown Jackson.
  • Because Jackson is a large city, particularly when it comes to manufacturing, the highways around Jackson can get busy. The major highways in Jackson, Mississippi include Interstate 55, Interstate 20, Interstate 220, US 51, US 49, and US 80. Although the winter season is quite temperate, the city roads are frequented by several potholes, so please drive your car rental in Jackson with caution and a close eye to the road.
  • Snow is rare in Jackson, nonetheless, be sure that you practice safe driving in snowy or icy conditions by not slamming your brakes and driving below the speed limit. The morning rush hour is between 7am and 8am. During rush hour, the Interstate 55 South towards Byram tends to get the most backed up. Keep these rush hour times in mind when returning your car to catch a flight, and allow for more time to arrive in case of traffic.
  • Book your car hire in Jackson at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size hire cars in Jackson are around 18% more expensive than other car types, on average

FAQs about car hire in Jackson

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Jackson?

    We recommend a compact car for traveling around Jackson, Mississippi as it will give you better gas mileage, make it easier to park, and still give you all the comfort you need for your travels. If you are traveling on business or want to drive in style, a luxury car might be a preferred option.

  • What’s the speed limit in Jackson?

    In Mississippi, a maximum speed limit of 70mph is allowed on its main highways. Within the city limits, the speed limit is generally 45mph.

However, Jackson police officers or Mississippi highway patrol officers can often be found around the Pearl River Bridge monitoring for speeding drivers.

    Downtown Jackson, Mississippi has paid parking meters. Rates are $1 per hour, costing $3 after 2h and then $4 for the third hour.

I had limited time because of flight delays and an event I was trying to make. The one aspect I was hoping was not going to be an issue was picking up a car. I get to the booth and they inform me that even tho I had a reservation, there were no cars and I had to come back the next day. By that time all the other car rental companies had closed and I had to take a $50 taxi ride to make my event in time and then another $50 taxi ride the next day to pick up my reservation.

First and foremost when I arrived there, they did not have the car that I reserved and instead of try to accommodate me, they tried to give me a minivan. It was for my son’s eighth grade ball. I reserved a Tesla or something similar but a minivan to accommodate me. No no apology was given or anything I never reserve or rent from them again.

This was the worst experience I’ve experienced with Avis/Budget. I normally book through the app but decided to use a 3rd party app. The truck was dirty and when asked for it to be cleaned, it was agin returned dirty after waiting 30 minutes. That’s an additional 30 minutes to the wait to get the truck. The truck had a broken taillight, dents & scratches all over it and broken light on the side mirror. When I cleaned the steering wheel with my wipes, they were literally brown with dirt.

Car hire insurance in Jackson

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Jackson car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Jackson.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Jackson car hire.
