KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Madison

  • Tennessee is known for its world’s best whiskeys, but this volunteer state offers more if you plan to adventure its suburban areas of Madison. Madison is a bustling city with activities and attractions to enjoy. It offers unique adventures centering on outdoor activities and historical attractions. You are better off exploring these attractions with Madison car rentals. You can travel back in time at Casey Railroad Museum, learn Prehistoric Artifacts at Pinson Mounds State Archaeological Park, walk down Memory Lane at Bemis Mill Village Museum, or tickle your taste buds at Century Farm Winery.
  • Nashville International Airport (BNA) is the nearest airport to Madison, about 12 miles from the city center. You will land here if you are flying into the city. Car rental companies operate their desks at the Car Rental Facility. The facility is connected to the terminal and is accessible via covered moving walkways. The popular agencies include Enterprise, Hertz, National, Avis, Budget, Alamo, Payless, Dollar, and Thrifty. You will leap into adventure immediately after you land if you get your Madison car rentals at the airport.
  • Generally, driving your car rentals in Madison is easy and enjoyable because the city boasts well-established, tarmacked, and maintained roads. Drivers are typically less impatient, and the residents strictly abide by traffic regulations. The city has many roundabouts; approach the intersections and roundabouts with caution. Also, slow down when approaching populated areas, as encountering jaywalking in these areas is unsurprising. Ensure your vehicle is equipped with safety features like effective tires for grip since road surfaces get wet and slippery. Drive carefully on wet roads.
  • Like other cities in Tennessee, Madison experiences significant traffic snarl-ups during rush hours. Usually, the city experiences bumper-to-bumper traffic during rush hours. The rush hours in the city start from 6:30 am to 10 am, while the evening rush hours begin from 3:30 pm to 7 pm. Several locals in the city access the city with private vehicles, usually occasioned by vehicles and motorbikes scrambling for position, leading to heavy traffic. We recommend not to drive your car rentals in Madison during these hours.
  • Book your rental car in Madison at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Madison are around 22% more expensive than other car types, on average

In that case, the choice of your car type depends entirely on your needs and destinations. The city has many off-road destinations you can adventure. Look for an SUV if you want to travel to Madison off-road locations, but an economy is recommended for solo travelers. Consider the vehicle’s safety and fuel efficiency.

  • What is the speed limit in Madison?

    Bear in mind that the speed limit in Madison varies, depending on the road you drive. Observing these speed limits saves you from the city’s harsh speeding punishment. Unless posted otherwise, the speed limit when driving your car rentals in Madison is 70 mph on rural and urban freeways, 30 mph on residential streets, 55 mph on two-lane and undivided roads, and 65 mph on divided highways. Pay attention to the posted speed limits to avoid speeding charges. Drive slower than the stipulated speed on the S-curve of public highways.

  • Where are the best places to park in Madison?

    Finding parking lots when driving Madison car rentals can be challenging because of limited parking options. To this end, consider booking a Madison hotel with parking lots to beat the stress of looking for one. Sheraton Madison Hotel, The Edgewater Hotel, Fluno Center, Madison Marriott West, The Livingston Inn, and Graduate Madison offer free parking service if you stay on their property. Metered parking lots are available in downtown Madison. Consider checking spots in the industrial area. Parking charges vary. But it costs around $2.00 per hour.

Pros:

Absolutely nothing

Cons:

Booked my car a week in advance with my credit card. 7 days later went to pick up my car and they told me they didn’t accept my credit card, AFTER ALREADY TAKING THE MONEY OUT. So I was left with no money and no car to get to lung transplant follow up appointment out of state the next morning. They told me to “go down the street and open up a different bank account” after filing a complaint, the manager told me they could’ve accepted it the card after all if they had just looked into the situation a little deeper instead of brushing it off. So now I’ve missed my doctors appointment and I’m still waiting on a refund.

Professional and courteous staff. Easy process. Honored and extended discount and upgrade. Most importantly during a time of vehicle shortage; they HAVE VEHICLES for rent. Helps improve the Budget Rental brand and letting people know they rent more than just moving trucks. Thankful for the cool vehicle I got to rent.

Avis called me, literally, as my Uber was pulling up to drive me to the rental location to tell me they did not have any cars available for the day. I ended up paying almost double for a last minute rental from another service, was very late getting where I needed to be AND I have a $50 charge on my credit card from Avis and the insurance yet to be refunded. Terrible, defensive agent when they called at the last minute too. Avis will never get my business again and I may need Kayak to assist with getting these charges reversed/refunded.

KAYAK

Pros:

I liked the comfort of the car and it's cornering. The staff was very nice and accommodating.

Cons:

I HATE all the assists on the car. It would constantly grab the wheel and forcibly turn it back into the lane if I got too close to the line. I also could not figure out the display panel without reading the manual. Also, the wait time at the Gallatin Pike office was exceedingly long. We had to wait for them to go pick up a car from the lot and it took a long time.

Pros:

Great staff, very friendly and personable. We did receive an upgrade since they didn’t have our size requested available and it was much appreciated! Everything was great. Our only “hiccup” if you want to call it that was that they didn’t have a chance to fill up with gas before we got there but they told us that up front and wasn’t an issue at all. They said to just bring it back with however much in it. Will definitely rent from here again. :)

Cons:

Everything was great!

KAYAK

Pros:

The agent explained the basic operations of the vehicle, which was really helpful as I always have to search to figure each new car's set-up.

Cons:

Other than a sign to state that we could not enter the office, there was no indication of where to stand outside so there was confusion on who was next in line to be served. Additionally, it was extremely sunny and hot and there were no coverings or shade to wait in. The agent did not inform me that the rental drop-off location in DC that was on my reservation is currently closed due to COVID-19, so I didn't know that I had to drop-off the vehicle at a completely different location than I had selected.
