KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Macon

  • The city of Macon, also referred to as The Heart of Georgia, is home to many historical, cultural, and other attractions. A car rental in Macon will allow you to thoroughly experience and get to know the city. We recommend starting your exploration at top destinations, such as Ocmulgee Mounds National Historic Park, where you may visit the on-site museum to view items from former inhabitants. Next, visit the Tubman Museum, the country's largest museum of African American history, which has an exhibit devoted to inventors and a sizable historical mural. If you're looking forward to seeing a live performance in Macon, stop by the magnificent Douglass Theatre to see a live show or a movie.
  • Visitors to Macon from out of state will most likely be flying into the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), less than 90 minutes northwest of Macon. This airport provides an ideal location for securing Macon car rentals. Once you get off your plane at ATL, you can take the Sky Train from the airport to the nearby RCC, or Rental Car Center. Some agencies you can find at the RCC include Avis, Enterprise, SIXT, Hertz, Budget, and others.
  • Pick up your Macon airport car rental as soon as you land to give your journey the best possible start. With a rental car, you'll be able to forego the pricey ride-shares and travel to your first location fast. In addition, a rental car provides you the freedom to explore, whether you're in town for business or to visit this ancient town. You may rent a car from various Middle Georgia Regional Airport companies, including Avis, Hertz, and Budget. Additionally, off-site vehicle rental companies, including Atco, Enterprise, and Budget, offer shuttle services at the airport.
  • Since Macon is located virtually in the center of the state of Georgia, cheap car rentals in Macon will allow you to travel all over the "Peach State." In about 2 hours and 30 minutes, you can drive to the coast and dive into the Atlantic Ocean. In about 2 hours, you could drive to Augusta to the east or to Columbus to the west. In about 3 hours and 20 minutes, you can cross the border into Florida and visit the city of Tallahassee.
  • If you go for a car rental in Macon, follow the rules of the road and signs and signals. Ensure you follow the speed limit road signs since there are highway speed traps. Common highways with speed traps in Macon include Arkwright Road, Riverside Drive, Interstate 75, and Vineville Avenue. Pio Nono Avenue, Gray Highway, and State Road 247 are a few roadways you should drive carefully on.
  • Because on most Georgia toll lanes on major roads you cannot pay cash, you will have to pay electronically. If you are interested in cheap car rentals in Macon, be aware that if you try to use your own PlatePass or Peach Pass in order to pay tolls, this will not work in Macon car rentals. As a result, you won't actually be paying the toll, and you will therefore incur penalties for the late payment of the toll.
  • Avoid driving during rush hour when traveling through Macon. In Macon, rush hour occurs between 7 am, and 8 am. In the evening, rush hour is between 5 pm and 6 pm. You might wish to avoid traveling during these times because main roads frequently become congested before and after work hours. Most busy streets are Vineville Avenue, Forsyth, Zebulon Road, Cherry Street, Arkwright Road, and Shurling Drive.
  • Book your rental car in Macon at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Macon are around 30% cheaper than other car types, on average

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

    Your budget and your travel itinerary will play a role in determining your ideal match. When getting a car rental in Macon, you should know that driving in the city frequently entails navigating narrow streets and few parking spots. However, a compact might make this less intimidating. If you wish to escape the city and enjoy the renowned sandy beaches of Macon, you might need a vehicle with more space for passengers. A full-size or mid-size SUV will be suitable for road trips.

  • Will I be charged extra if I rent a car in Macon when I'm 21?

    Probably. While it is legal to rent a car in Georgia when you are 21, most cheap car rentals in Macon charge drivers under 25 a daily fee for being a Young Renter. But, when you are looking into cheap car rentals in Macon, ask each rental agency if they would consider waiving the fee - after all, some rental car companies in Georgia have been known to not charge young renters.

  • What is the speed limit in Macon?

    Although Macon's speed limits might vary, they usually fall between 25 mph and 70 mph. Remember that the average speed limit in Macon is 75 mph if you find yourself on a highway. Unless otherwise indicated, most residential roads have a 35 mph maximum speed limit.

  • When I rent a car in Macon, will I have to add on a child seat for each one of my kids?

    It depends how old your kids are and how much they weigh. Georgia law requires that infants younger than 1 be secured in a baby seat. However, if they are 20 pounds or heavier, they can use a toddler seat. Kids 1 to 3 are required to sit in a toddler seat, but they can use a booster seat if they're 40 pounds or heavier. Kids 4 to 8 need to use a booster seat, but they can just use a seat belt if they are heavier than 80 pounds or taller than 4 feet 9 inches.

  • What is the best place to park in Macon?

    If you are looking for a place to park your car in Macon, free parking is accessible by foot from Walnut Street and Cherry Street between MLK Jr. Blvd. and Fifth Street. These parkings have two-hour parking restrictions daily. There are also several public parking garages near Poplar Street and Third Street. These public parking garages include Mulberry Street Garage, 427 Poplar Street Garage, 402 Cherry Street Garage, and 577 Mulberry Street Garage. We advise parking in one of the downtown parking garages if you need to leave your car for more than three hours because they are typically less expensive than metered parking.

Pick up /drop off, easy as pie. The car was awesome.the thing that stood out most....the two ladies that work there, they couldn't have been kinder. I was in a bad mood(nothing to do with y'all!) And they brightened my day right on up! I will ABSOLUTELY be back!. Thank you.

Cons:

Honestly, the only thing is location . The airport here is a little far out. Nothing you can do about that !! Worth it though!

Pros:

Enough space for me and my husband's luggage. The most inexpensive of all the other cars we saw online.

Cons:

There was no one at the counter when we arrived so waited for quite a bit, about to 20-30 mins, to pick up the rental. Also, the lady seemed a bit annoyed that we came to pick up the car earlier than reserved. However our plans changed last minute. Lastly, in the rental after we had already left Macon the oil change light came on and the car wasn't running the greatest. Definitely a big turn off considering we were driving to Fort Lauderdale.

They call me the day I was supposed to pick up the SUV and told me they didn't have one in and they would call me when they get one keep in mind I suppose have picked up the vehicle on Friday and it's Sunday and I still haven't heard nothing from them. That's very unprofessional. So in other words I never recieved the Vehicle.

Cons:

The best I can say about the Chevy van is AWFUL! When I made reservation for van it was a picture of a Ford Transit. Went and test drove one (used Transit) ride and space a 1000 times better. Chevy was cramped noisy in every seat. If you can't produce just Don't show picture!

Pros:

No drop box access on Saturday when we attempted to return the vehicle. After driving back from North Georgia there was no place to return the key as Macon Airport was closed.

Cons:

Needed drop box access. Location closed at Macon Airport when we returned with no place to leave key on Saturday evening. Had to return next day. Major inconvenience plus customer service upon calling to seek a solution after hours was not impressive.
