Pros:

Staff was great, Pickup was flawless. Vehicle was perfect

Cons:

It would have been nice if the branch we used was open later so we could physically hand the rental back in. We had to drop it off and leave keys in a drop box. Minor issue, though.

Pros:

The car was comfortable and easy to drive

Cons:

Booked the car online, but when I arrived to pick my car up, the staff said there were no cars available. Had to wait over an hour for a car. The car also reeked of cigarette smoke. Vincent was friendly, but the rest of the staff was unfriendly and clearly didn’t care about the customers. Would not book at this location again.

Smooth transaction all around I didn’t fully grasp that the add on insurance offered was third party so you still have to provide your personal insurance provider at the counter.

Pros:

On Oct. 18 the Dollar agent couldn't scan my card. Asked to type in the number, he simply said, we don't do that. We can't rent you the car you reserved. The Enterprise agent six feet away, did scan my card and gave a polite explanation of why none of them could type in my number.

Cons:

Dollar could spend the money to train their agents better with regard to common courtesy if not professional decorum.

Car rental insurance in Lexington

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

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

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Lexington car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Lexington

  • Whether you explore Lexington’s sights, discover the scenic nature of Daniel Boone National Forest to the east of the city, or visit Kentucky’s capital of Frankfort, about a 40-minute drive away, with a hire car you are flexible and free to do whatever you please during your stay in Lexington. For travelers wanting to explore Kentucky’s biggest city, Louisville can also be conveniently explored from Lexington, as it is only a bit over an hour away by car.
  • Blue Grass Airport is just 7 miles outside Lexington and has various hire car agencies onsite, including Alamo, Enterprise, and Hertz, along with some others. The easiest way to begin your time in Lexington is by picking up a hire car directly from there, allowing you to reach the city in about 15 minutes. Travelers can find the agency service desks in the baggage claim area on the first level, and pick-up and drop-off is right next to the terminal.
  • Lexington is famous for its many scenic routes and driving is generally a pleasant experience; however, heavy rain showers, sleet, and ice can be regular occurrences in Lexington and in Kentucky in general, so prepare for some challenging weather conditions. When the roads are drenched by rain showers or ice, slow down considerably and refrain from driving if you don’t feel comfortable doing so, but find a safe place to park and wait until the weather conditions improve. Also make sure to have the headlights on so other cars can see you coming.
  • As in most US cities, rush hour in Lexington is the most intense on weekdays between 8 and 10 am and 5 and 8 pm, but on the weekends there can also be increased traffic around places of interest, such as the Rupp Arena or Keeneland race track. Plan at least 45 minutes ahead if you have a game or race to get to so that traffic will not be an issue.
  • Book your car hire in Lexington at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Lexington are around 29% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Full-size car hires in Lexington are around 8% cheaper than other car types, on average
