KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Lynchburg

  • Lynchburg sits at the heart of Virginia, making it the ideal launching point if you’re hoping to explore the state. Just a couple of hours east of the city is Richmond, the state’s capital, and in just over an hour, you can get to Roanoke. Having a car rental in Lynchburg ensures that these cities are within reach. Better yet, a vehicle gives you both the means and the necessary cargo space to make a day trip of some of the great hikes offered in the state’s Appalachian Mountains. You can pack your gear and head off in the early hours of the morning to tackle great trails in the Shenandoah National Park, about an hour north of Lynchburg.
  • After you’ve secured a Lynchburg car rental through KAYAK, the next step is picking it up upon arrival. There are a few rental car locations that have stand-alone pick-up locations in the city, including a Hertz on Old Forest Rd. and a handful of Enterprise locations on Old Forest Rd., Forest Rd. and Ward Rd. If you fly into Lynchburg Regional Airport/Preston Glenn Field (LYH), you can collect your vehicle there. Avis, Budget, and National all have service desks within the airport’s passenger terminal next to the baggage claim—after you’ve checked in, you can simply head to the adjacent parking lot where your car will be waiting for you.
  • Lynchburg, Virginia has a quaint downtown area and a number of attractions that are ideal for children. Because of this, you’ll find young families in the city hoping to explore some of the museums and other sites of interest. Be sure to keep an eye on the road while navigating some of these more visited spaces and be sure you check all your mirrors as you’re backing out of parking spaces.
  • Rush hour peaks between about 7:30am and 8am during the week and commuters will encounter congested roadways around the city. In the evenings, you can expect post-work rush hours between about 4pm and 6pm.
  • Book your rental car in Lynchburg at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Lynchburg are around 44% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Lynchburg

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Lynchburg?

    Overall, Virginia has a temperate climate, and the city of Lynchburg has roadways that are easy to navigate. For your car rental in Lynchburg, you may want to secure a full-sized sedan. The vehicle’s cabin and trunk will provide you with ample space for any gear, should you decide to make use of the outdoor recreation opportunities. What’s more, the enclosed cabin offers a good reprieve from the sweltering summer sun in the event that you’re traveling during the peak vacation months of June through August.

    Lynchburg presents a range of opportunities for tourism, including parks, museums, restaurants, theaters, and more.

A good parking garage close to activities is the Midtown Parking Deck, which is located in the Central Business District on Commercial St., between 9th St. and 10th St. You can expect the average hourly rate to be about $0.25 for the first hour, then $1 for each subsequent hour during the week.

Pros:

The staff helped me t sync my phone since I had never done it before and all was easy after that.

Cons:

I had not requested this kind of car, yet I found that I was more than pleased with every aspect of it. And since I sat in that car for three days straight, driving from east coast to west coast, that is saying quite a lot.

6.0 Okay

Jun 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Car was nice, clean, and comfortable.

Cons:

Rate at pickup was about $70 more than rate quoted. (This was quickly fixed.) Drop-off point was a Mazda Dealership - there wasn't any signage at all. I had to ask the sales guys if I was in the right place and, even after they pointed me to the right place, the only "signage" was a COVID notice on the door and a rug on the floor INSIDE the facility. When a customer is trying to return property you by a specific deadline, this additional stress is not a good thing.

Cons:

bad customer service. car was paid for with third party priceline. insurance purchased as well. come to find when we got to the airport to get the car we were denied because we were using a debit card. clearly using the debit card to pay should have been a prompt to tell us we could not use this card for the car since it was not a major credit card. I dont even understand the difference anyway. pay is pay. this caused us to be late to an event where my sister was lecturing and a dinner in her honor was delayed. this could have all been avoided if the person booking would have explained this rule

We were pulling into the lot to pick up our rental and someone called saying there was no car available for us. However, there were tons of care in the lot. When asked about the cars, the person at the desk stated they were reserved for other customers, yet, we also had a reservation and no car was given to us. Disappointed is an understatement.

Cons:

We got a car that did not have a manual with information on how to access the controls. The car honked every time we tried to use the cruise control. And it took forever to get the ad by Serius XM to go off the screen. We finally went online to find the car manual and were then able to locate and use the controls. The car worked well after that. More importantly, the people at Enterprise couldn’t have been nicer to deal with.

The lady behind the counter at the Lynchburg Airport was less than helpful. She seemed bothered by my questions. She was due any day to have a baby, and it really showed in her attitude. She should not have been at work, she should have been home resting getting ready to have a child.

Lynchburg rental was just as bad. Horrible customer service. Was told I could go to the employee's job for her with checking the car in or I could leave my number and e-mail address and she could get to it later but there might be a late fee. Will not rent from either location again!

Pros:

Recommended a upgrade which I took advantage of. The Maxima was a incredible and comfortable experience for the 6 1/2 hour drive. The car exterior was washed.

Cons:

The interior of the car was not cleaned. Fingerprints were all over the back seat windows. Food wrappers were present in the car. The car seems to have needed maintenance as well. I was picking up some road noise from the rear axle and I also heard a bang sound when I took left turns coming from the rear as well. I did not feel the car was safe as it needed to be.
