KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Jefferson City

  • A car rental in Jefferson City, Missouri, allows you to reach remote destinations that may not be served by public transportation, enabling you to explore the countryside, visit attractions off the beaten path, or engage in outdoor activities easily. Some hidden gems not easily accessible by public transportation include Runge Nature Center and Katy Trail State Park. In addition, renting a car provides a comfortable and private mode of transportation. You can enjoy a peaceful and quiet ride without the potential discomfort of crowded public transport.
  • Visitors coming to Jefferson City, Missouri, via airplane will likely land at Columbia Regional Airport (COU), about 21 miles away. With numerous rental car agencies such as Alamo, Budget, Enterprise, and National available here, you won’t have challenges accessing your Jefferson City car rental as soon as you land. The car rental agencies at Columbia Regional Airport (COU) are located in the airport terminal building. After you arrive at the airport, you can follow the signs or directions within the terminal to reach the car rental counters.
  • Some streets in Jefferson City, particularly in older parts of the city, may have narrower lanes or limited space. This can make maneuvering larger car rentals in Jefferson City or passing other vehicles more challenging. It's important to be attentive and drive with caution in these areas. Besides, Missouri experiences all four seasons, including hot summers and cold winters. Weather conditions, such as snow, ice, or heavy rain, can pose challenges for drivers. It's important to adjust driving habits, drive at appropriate speeds, and maintain a safe distance from other vehicles during inclement weather.
  • Jefferson City, Missouri, is smaller than major urban areas, so road congestion is generally less severe. However, traffic congestion can occur during certain times or in specific areas. This typically occurs in the morning from around 7:00 am to 9:00 am and in the late afternoon from around 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm when people travel to and from work. As such, consider skirting around streets known for notorious congestion, like Highways 50 and 54, which pass through or near the city.
  • Book your car hire in Jefferson City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Cons:

Nothing really could have been better. This was a 2020 and it had all the bells and whistles. I had never driven anything so new. And I was in and out of the building four or five times coming back with different questions and the manager was very patient with me.

Pros:

The vehicle was nice and drove well and was comfortable.

Cons:

It wreaked of marijuana... like BAD.... We were going on a family vacation. I had to leave all the doors open, vacuum, wipe it down and put air freshners in it which didn't make the smell go away completely....it was bad. I mentioned it when I brought it back. The guy that worked there just made a face but didn't say anything. He didn't care.

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing about the rental was good. Shawn the owner of the Jefferson City shop was very disrespectful and did not provide the vehicles that were promised in the rental agreement. I will never rent from him ever again and I do not recommend anyone to use Avis or Budget. Also I hope you and your family are never in a wreck in an Avis rental car. They do not care at all. Avis customer assistance left me and my family in the middle of an Interstate with a totalled vehicle after a 4 car pile up for 6 hours. They told us basically to figure it out and they could not give us another vehicle to get home.

Cons:

Never ever use Avis or Budget rental services. Terrible customer service. From the minute I arrived at the Avis shop to pick up my vehicle until I got back from my trip, I had nothing but trouble from Avis.
