KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Midlothian

  • Using car rentals in Midlothian offers several advantages over relying solely on city public transport. First, Midlothian car rentals offer convenience and flexibility, enabling you to discover the city and its nearby areas at your preferred speed. Unlike relying on public transportation, which often has restricted routes and fixed schedules, renting a car grants you the freedom to explore off-the-beaten-path attractions and locations. Additionally, car rentals are particularly beneficial when visiting attractions outside the city center, such as Pocahontas State Park or the Metro Richmond Zoo. However, it's important to note that Midlothian's public transport may have limitations, with less frequent service to certain areas and limited coverage during late hours.
  • Car rentals at Richmond Airport (RIC) are conveniently located in the Rental Car Center, just a short distance from the arrivals hall. To reach the car rental desks from the arrivals hall, follow the signs for ground transportation and proceed to the lower level of the terminal building. It's important to note that when renting a car from RIC airport to explore Midlothian, you will need a valid driver's license, a major credit card in your name for payment purposes, and to be at least 21 years old (age restrictions may vary by the rental company). It's recommended to make a reservation in advance to ensure availability.
  • Driving car rentals in Midlothian is generally pleasant, with a calm and friendly driving culture. The driving culture in Midlothian is generally respectful and law-abiding, with drivers following traffic rules and yielding to pedestrians. Cyclists are becoming more common, and drivers are generally cautious around them. Pedestrians are expected to use crosswalks and obey traffic signals, and while jaywalking is not uncommon, it's not prevalent. The road conditions in Midlothian are well-maintained, with smooth and paved roads throughout the city. However, it's advisable to watch out for occasional potholes or construction areas, which may temporarily affect certain routes.
  • Certain times can be challenging for driving car rentals in Midlothian, particularly during rush hour. Rush hour typically occurs on weekdays from 7 am to 9 am and 4 pm to 6 pm, primarily on major roads such as Midlothian Turnpike and Hull Street Road. Alternative routes like Courthouse Road or Robious Road are recommended to avoid congestion. Midlothian roads can be affected by weather conditions, especially during winter, when snow or ice may impact road conditions and require extra caution. In summer, heavy rainfall can lead to temporary flooding in low-lying areas.
  • Book your car hire in Midlothian at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Midlothian are around 83% more expensive than other car types, on average

The Mansfield location was terrible. Then dealing with Avis at all was hell. It took us all day to secure a vehicle that we had reserved weeks before. We had to drive all over our metroplex which is freaking HUGE! Most terrible experience ever from start to finish with this company.
