This is because, with a rental car, you’ll get the opportunity to truly explore Kingsport, as you’ll be able to move from one destination to another without having any stopovers. Some of the fun destinations you’ll get the opportunity to visit include Warriors Path State Park, a waterfront recreation area with superb nature trails; Bays Mountain Park & Planetarium, a park with various wildlife and a planetarium; Hands on Discovery Center, a kids’ museum with touchable exhibits; and Appalachian Caverns, lovely caves with old gem mines.
  • Tri-Cities Regional Airport is the closest airport to Kingsport. If you’d like to rent a car once you alight from your flight at this airport, you’ll be happy to hear that it has counters for Kingsport car rentals, such as Enterprise, Avis, and Alamo. The pickup location for the cars offered by these car rentals is within walking distance of the airport’s terminal. Thus, you will simply walk to your car once you finalize your rental agreement.
  • Driving in Kingsport usually is a stress-free experience. This is because it features wide roads with proper paths for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as visible road signs. However, when driving your car rental in Kingsport, it’s advisable that you keep your speed down, remain conscious of your surroundings, cut out distractions, stay patient, and maintain a safe distance between you and the car ahead.

Other than slight traffic, Kingsport also experiences snow from December to February. Given that the snow tends to make the roads slippery, if you intend to rent a car from one of the car rentals in Kingsport during this period, you should ask for snow tires to be installed.

Pros:

Well, it was easy to use online. Too bad the rental shop the site sent me to, with a confirmation number, had no record of my reservation.

Cons:

Well I completely could not rent a vehicle from the place Kayak sent me to. I lost hours of my 3 day mini vacation trying to find a place to rent a vehicle. And i havent gotten my deposit and insurance back.

Pros:

The clerk at the counter handed me the paperwork, keys, told me where the car was parked, and sent me on my way. He never offered to go to the parking lot to check out the car or anything.

Cons:

For a short term rental, the value was not good. I needed the car to go from the airport to family's house.

KAYAK

Pros:

If I could do one thing over I would have booked 2 months in advance for better pricing. Saved money by dropping off car outside airport and they gave free shuttle ride to airport.

Cons:

They had to redo bill because they added insurance when we had said no at car pick up. Keep your documentation.

Pros:

Drop off in Kingsport was terrific. The gentleman was friendly and efficient.

Cons:

This location is not on the Hertz computer system, so he had to make copies of all the paperwork and email it to Hertz. He gave me the copy of the front page only and I didn't realize until later than I didn't have a copy of the complete paperwork.
