KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Georgetown

  • Renting cheap car rentals in Georgetown offers several advantages compared to alternative transportation options, making it a convenient choice for exploring the city and its surrounding areas. Georgetown is a city with a relatively spread-out layout, which can be challenging to navigate solely using public transportation. Therefore, using Georgetown car rentals can allow visitors to effortlessly reach different areas of the city, making it convenient to explore hidden gems or lesser-known attractions such as the Bourbon Trail, Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve, and Four Roses.
  • Lexington Blue Grass Airport (LEX) is the closest airport to Georgetown as it is approximately 14 miles away. The rental car offices at LEX are located in the baggage claim area. There is no shuttle service needed as it is a short walk to the rental car facility. Louisville Airport (SDF) is approximately 67 miles from Georgetown. The rental car offices at SDF are located on the lower level of the parking garage directly across from the terminal and there is a shuttle service available to the rental car pick-up area.
  • Visitors can expect driving cheap car rentals in Georgetown to be generally quite relaxed compared to larger cities. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when driving in the city. While the city is generally quiet, there are a few areas, such as downtown Georgetown, where pedestrians may be walking around. Be on the lookout for jaywalkers or pedestrians on crosswalks, as they have the right of way. In addition, Georgetown is considered a bike-friendly city, so it's not uncommon to encounter cyclists on the roads. Be sure to give bicycles ample space when passing and keep a safe distance.
  • Rush hour traffic is not usually a significant issue in Georgetown, but there may be some congestion during peak commute times around 7:00 am-9:00 am and 4:00 pm-6:00 pm, especially on the major roads leading to and from the city. Route 62 and Route 25 are two of the busiest roads in Georgetown and can be congested during peak times. During the winter, Georgetown does sometimes experience snow and ice storms, which can make driving conditions challenging. Additionally, the spring and summer months may bring heavy rain, which can create slippery roads and reduce visibility for drivers as they operate cheap car rentals in Georgetown.
  • Book your car hire in Georgetown at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Georgetown are around -19% cheaper than other car types, on average

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:

Not a single thing! Even though the guy did smile the whole time showing he was a true jerk!

Cons:

They stated it was booked thru a third party so they didn't have to honor the reservation. Then told me I could buy a plane ticket and be allowed the rental, so I buy a cheap flight, they again refuse saying I'm trying to defraud them!! I am still waiting on my refund& this has been over a week ago!!!

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.

The vehicle was well equipped. A Ford Fusion with backup camera and bluetooth sound system. The leather seats were very comfortable.

Cons:

There were a number of body scratches and I was afraid I would get blamed for them since no one came outside with me when I picked up the car and no one noted the condition of the vehicle. It also wasn't clean, particularly the interior windshield.

Cons:

This was the most infuriating experience with a car audio system ever. I don't know how anyone who uses a smartphone as an audio source could ever drive this car. When connected with a USB cable, so i could charge my phone, the system kept stopping the audio(podcasts app) and then switching to my music, randomly. I tried to just listen to music but it kept randomly stopping playback, sometimes restarting the song from the beginning, sometimes going to a completely different song, sometimes stopping entirely. I gave up trying to play from my phone and turned off audio in the car completely. while i left the phone plugged into USB to charge, but still, without me touching the phone or audio system, it would randomly open my music and start playing random songs through the audio system. I know my phone is not the problem because my personal car has a USB port integrated with the audio system and it works perfectly with my phone.
