Hertz in Cincinnati

With many historical sites and some of America’s most picturesque 19th century architecture, there is a lot to see in one of the USA’s most historic cities. Hertz Car Rental makes discovering Ohio’s third largest city easy with branches in and around the city, as well as at the airport. Whether you’re in Cincinnati for business or pleasure, you can see as much of ‘Queen City’ as you like in your own time.

Cincinnati is a large city with several residential, commercial and historic neighbourhoods that are perfect for exploring by car. Several attractions such as Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden and Mount Airy Forest are away from the Downtown area and are most quickly and easily reached by car.

Driving and Parking in Cincinnati

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 25 to rent a car in Cincinnati, or over 20 upon payment of an age differential charge. If you are from outside the United States of America you will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Cincinnati, take a look at our page about renting a car in the USA.

As with most cities, the main roads in Cincinnati become fairly congested around rush hour. So unless you need to drive at this time, it’s advisable to head out once the busy period has passed. If you are sightseeing within the Downtown and Over-the-Rhine areas, it’s well worth parking up and heading out on foot — especially as many of the older, historic streets were built before cars were commonplace.

There are plenty of parking garages and on-street parking options around the city. When you rent a car in Cincinnati, you’ll find parking to be affordable and easy. Parking meters accept payment by card, coin and even smartphone and the rates vary by location so check the meter when you park. Charges are enforced between 9am and 9pm Monday to Friday, and 2pm and 9pm on Saturdays in the Downtown and Over-the-Rhine areas. In all other neighbourhoods, they’re enforced 8am to 9pm Monday through Saturday.

Driving in and around Cincinnati

 

Key Routes

Three key interstate highways run through Cincinnati. The I-75 runs up through the city from the Downtown area into the north of Ohio, while I-71 heads north-easterly from Downtown. I-74, on the other hand, takes you to Mount Airy Forest - perfect for outdoors enthusiasts.

These interstates — as well as US highways 27, 50, 52 and 127 - connect with I-275, which forms a ring road through the outlying neighbourhoods of Cincinnati, crossing over the Ohio River into Kentucky. The I-75 means you can access pretty much any area of Cincinnati without getting caught in city traffic.

Major Highways

When you rent a car in Cincinnati, you may well want to explore Ohio further, taking the interstate to the likes of Columbus, Cleveland or one of the smaller towns or cities. It’s worthwhile making sure you’re aware of any regional rules of the road before you travel.

• Drive on the right and overtake on the left.
• It is legal to turn right on a red light after coming to a complete stop as long as there are no signs saying otherwise.
• Speed limits are strictly enforced and can vary depending where in the city you are. For instance, when passing a school, speed limits are reduced to 20mph. Make sure you take note of local speed limit signs as speeding is punishable with enforced fines or even legal action.
• Seat belts and child safety seats are mandatory.
