KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Lancaster

  • Be sure to check out a car rental in Lancaster to check out the many significant historical landmarks in Pennsylvania Dutch Country and the surrounding area. From Central Market, one of the nation’s oldest running farmers’ markets, the Fulton Opera House one of the oldest running theaters in the country, the Rock Ford Plantation site of the American Revolutionary War, and Wheatland, the historic estate of American president James Buchanan. If you’ve come to check out the authentic Pennsylvanian Amish communities and see areas that haven’t changed in centuries, like the Amish Farm and House or the Amish Experience at Plain & Fancy, you’ll also definitely need a car. Visits to these communities will take you on several fantastic scenic back-country roads throughout the county.
  • There are a few options for flying into Lancaster and renting a car. The rental companies serving the Lancaster Airport, which is a mere 6 miles away from the city center typically offer a pick-up or drop-off service as there is no car rental office on-site. The Harrisburg International Airport, roughly 26 miles away, has a greater number of flight options. Here the car rental counters can be found in the baggage claim area on the ground floor of the transportation center. The Reading Regional Airport is another option located approximately 30 miles away. To pick up your Lancaster car rental from the Reading Regional Airport the rental car agency will arrange an airport pickup.
  • Lancaster is a hub for Pennsylvania road traffic. Many popular state freeways go in and around the city, including the US 30, the US 222, the PA 283, the PA 72, and the PA 272. There is a big pedestrian culture in Lancaster, so be on the lookout as they may step out into the road without warning. Cycling is also common on the scenic back-country roads of the county, as are horse-driven carriages, so be sure to be on the watch when driving through the scenic roadways as well.
  • Some congested roads in Lancaster include the Harrisburg Pike with Dillervile Road and multiple sections along with the PA 23, including the Marietta Pike, the Good Drive, Fruitville Pike, and the Centerville Road, as well as US-222. Traffic is worse heading into Lancaster in the morning from 7am to 9am and out during the evening from 4pm to 6pm, and typically when approaching the city from the northern end, so plan your journey accordingly. Snow is also frequent in the winter months in Pennsylvania so be sure to practice safe driving in snowy conditions by not slamming your brakes and driving below the speed limit.
  • Book your rental car in Lancaster at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Lancaster are around 21% more expensive than other car types, on average

Pros:

Staff was very friendly and helpful

Cons:

Reserved a luxury crossover. When I arrived they didn't have any and was "upgraded" to a giant Nissan SUV. Got killed on gas mileage and not luxurious at all. Complete waste of money.

Airport pick-up/return pricing via my Hertz Gold membership was exorbitant. Going through Kayak/Priceline saved $$, (had the luxury of local family member to get me to/from this remote Hertz location)
