That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Louisville. If you're having trouble choosing, be sure to look over our chart below. We have compared the most popular vehicle categories for you:

What age do you have to be to rent a car in Louisville?

Usually, to rent a car in Louisville you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to read over the terms to figure out what the total is before you book your vehicle.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Louisville?

When driving around Louisville or the rest of the U.S.A., you will need insurance. Almost every supplier requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through the rental car dealer, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through the U.S.A.. Moreover, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com during checkout.

The major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover) will usually offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, like not covering larger vehicles like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Louisville.

What are the different fuel policies?

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.

You will need to find an open gas station near your rental car supplier

What fuel policy do you recommend?

At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you should return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

If you plan to see all that Louisville and maybe even the rest of Mississippi offers, you're going to need unlimited miles. You can drive as far as you'd like without worrying about additional fees. Read the fine print to make sure they are actually "unlimited."

Know before you go

Before you get going on your Louisville vacation, go over a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. You should:

  • Inspect your car and determine if there is any dents or scratches. If so, mark it down on your paperwork
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Figure out how to work the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
