KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Florence

  • Florence does not have an extensive public transport system, so you will want to rent a car in order to get around easily. The attractions in and around the city are fairly spread out, so look for car rentals in Florence and explore at your own pace. Many of the attractions within the city are parks and other outdoor activities, which you’ll need a car to get to. While in Florence, you will also probably spend a good amount of time around the Ohio River in or near downtown Cincinnati. Once in Cincinnati, there are a few shuttles available as well as a streetcar, but you’ll need a rental car to reach the downtown area.
  • The airport serving this area is the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. There is only one car rental company onsite at the airport: Hertz. It is located on level two of the terminal building near the baggage claim. You can catch a shuttle from door 10 at the baggage claim to the rental lots. Shuttles to the rental lots leave every 5 to 10min. However, there are many more companies that offer a pick-up service from the airport to off-site Florence car rentals, including Enterprise, Budget, and Avis.
  • Driving in Florence is pretty easy. As long as you pay attention to your fellow drivers and pedestrians, you will be fine. People in Florence generally obey the rules of the road but watch out for those pesky turn signals both in residential areas and on the highway. Pro tip: drivers in this area tend to struggle driving in the rain, so stay alert during bad weather.
  • Florence is largely a commuter city, with many people driving to and from places like Covington, Kentucky, and Cincinnati, Ohio, every day. This means that the morning and evening rush hour can cause massive pileups. The main highways (I-71, I-75, and US-275) get pretty clogged between 7am and 8am and 5:30pm and 6:30pm. If you’re in a rush, try not to drive on the highways during these hours. Winters in Florence are pretty mild, but in the case of snow, you’ll want to avoid the highways as there are lots of twists and turns.
  • Book your car hire in Florence at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Florence are around 143% more expensive than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Florence

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

    Car rentals in Florence offer a plethora of options, so it can be hard to choose what you want. However, if you plan on exploring the surrounding areas of Covington and Cincinnati, we’d recommend going for a fuel-efficient compact car. There are dozens of designated public parking spots only for compact cars and you may end up needing to parallel park when in the city. This will also make everything easier when navigating narrow city roads and parking garages.

  • What’s the speed limit in Florence?

    You’ll probably be using I-75 quite a bit during your time in Florence, so it’s important to know that the speed limit here is 65mph. It’s recommended to stay between 60 and 65mph as this highway is notorious for accidents and police officers are often out on patrol. Otherwise, speed limits can range from 25mph to 55mph depending on the area you’re driving through. As a general rule, always keep an eye out for signage indicating the speed limit.

  • Where are the best places to park in Florence?

    Parking in Florence rarely causes much hassle. Hotels and other places of lodging typically have their own free parking, and many of the attractions in the city, such as parks and other outdoor locations, also tend to include free parking lots. If you’re looking to park and walk around a particular area, find public lots like that of the Florence Mall. This lot is free for up to 2h. The Turfway Commons lot is also free for up to 2h.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

I was supposed to pick up the car by 6pm due to the location closing at 6pm. I called Budget customer service around 4pm to confirm reservation however when I went to pick up the car around 5 pm they told they wouldn t have any cars available until 9 am the next day! I asked them to check with another Budget location nearby but they said they was nothing they could do and that I could address a complaint by calling customer service! I was unable to get another car rental at the last minute and missed an important meeting. This is simply unacceptable.

Upon getting vehicle. Upon starting vehicle, it flashed a message that back tire treading low, needs Maintenace or checked. I asked the gentleman working about it at the exit. He said don't worry about it. 'You should be OK' didn't sound promising. So, I asked the supervisor on duty, he said let's switch your vehicle out. Then, upon turning in the vehicle, the scan person was out to lunch, although 3 able bodies sitting and or standing there said just leave the key in the car and when she gets back from lunch, we will make sure to let her know to scan your vehicle back and email you a receipt. Been over 14 hours since that occurred still no receipt. Concerning that 3 employees can sit and aren't crossed train to scan a vehicle in. Doesn't make sense to me. This is a very sad situation at CVG airport.

Cons:

Cruise control on the 2019 Versa that I rented did not work. The cruise on/off button on the steering wheel was faulty. I rely on cruise control to keep me from speeding when I drive on the interstate freeway. Not having cruise control was a major inconvenience. Agent at counter was not clear as to what I was paying for, vis-a-vis how much gas I needed to put in the tank, before returning the car. If is unlikely I will rent from HERTZ in the future.
