Top tips for renting a car at Chattanooga Lovell Field airport

  • There’s always an added benefit of renting a vehicle online before you reach the rental branch. That is why KAYAK offers you an opportunity to book a car rental at Chattanooga Lovell Field Airport ahead of time to improve your travel plans. Online reservation is a step towards obtaining a vehicle at a competitive rate. So, book as early as you can, preferably one or two weeks before heading to Chattanooga Lovell Field Airport (CHA). The overall rental cost might also include extras like baby seats and a GPS. See the breakdown of the rental price in the payment section of the rental agreement.
  • As you walk into the rental counters at Chattanooga Airport, ensure that your e-voucher is intact and your driver’s license is valid. The minimum age for driving in Chattanooga is 16, but car rental companies at CHA Airport require drivers to be at least 21 years. Each rental agency has different requirements how long renters should have had their driver’s license. If your license is issued outside of the US, you will be asked to show an international driving permit at the counter. Also, carry a valid photo ID—a passport or an identification card that is internationally recognized.
  • The kind of activities you want to enjoy should determine the choice of car rental at Chattanooga Lovell Field Airport. The SUV is a favorite among car renters heading to the countryside or mountainous trails. Your family and friends could use a van for added room when traveling to forested parks. Or cruise around the city in a sedan to save money on fuel. Remember to choose a vehicle category based on your pocket. When on a tight budget, opt for compact or economy class as they are the most affordable. Another tip that can save you money is choosing full-to-full fuel usage.
  • Returning your vehicle should be an easy and convenient process as the car rental traffic is very minimal. Plus, there is no disruption by public buses because they use a separate parking lot. The parking garage for a rental car at Chattanooga Airport is on the ground level of the Airport Road. The only thing perhaps you should avoid is the rush hour traffic, so plan your pick-up and drop-off wisely. On a typical day, traffic jams around CHA Airport start from 6 am, and ease up around 10 am. This is mostly the same from 4.30 pm – 6 pm.
  • Book your rental car at Chattanooga Lovell Field airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Chattanooga Lovell Field airport

  • How fast can I locate a car rental at Chattanooga Lovell Field Airport?

    We have partnered with reputable car rental companies with branches on-site at CHA Airport. On arrival, navigating the rental counters should be super-easy since there’s only one terminal. The car rental center is inside the arrivals hall. Make your way towards the counter of your choice to receive your rental agreement and car keys. The branch staff will then lead you to the pick-up location a few meters outside the terminal.

  • Do car rental packages at Chattanooga Lovell Field Airport include insurance coverage?

    Carefully look into the rental voucher to see if the insurance provided meets your requirements. If you feel it’s not enough, there’s an option to buy an additional policy at the Chattanooga Lovell Field Airport car rental center. The provider’s T&C should give you more insights into your insurance needs while driving in Tennessee.

  • Does the pricing change if I return the car early or late at the rental branch in Chattanooga Airport?

    If you have a single-day rental, but circumstances force you to return the vehicle the next day, you must pay for that extra 24h and probably a late-return fee on top. Besides, your schedule can have an impact on the total cost of renting a car. Suppose you have a business deal extending through the weekend. Find out how the weekday rental rate differs from a weekend rental to avoid surprises. Lastly, if you have been offered a discount for booking four days, returning the vehicle on the third day could make you lose the deal.

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at Chattanooga Lovell Field airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Chattanooga Lovell Field airport to off-airport locations include Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hertz, National, and Thrifty.

The car could have been in better shape. The backup camera was held in by tape and the windows hadn't been cleaned well (they were very hard to see out of). Otherwise, the car performed well and the experience was good.

Cons:

We were never able to get our vehicle. The rental counter closed at 8pm and our flight got in at 8:42pm. There was no night pick up, no notification that there would not be anyone at the counter. They didn’t leave the information with any of the other agencies who were all open. We ended up having to get a rental car from another agency. We were fortunate that someone from Dollar was able to help us but we had to pay for 2 cars and then I had to spend the next morning of my vacation contacting Hertz to try to get a refund. Absolute nightmare! If you have a rental coming in that day, you should probably have your rental counter staffed! So disappointed!

Was told they didnt have a full size car and was upgrading to a SUV. Then they tried to convince me me to buy their gas package because it would save me money. The whole the sales rep was on the phone talking to a friend. I wnet to the numbered spot and couldnt find a SUV, wqalked around fr a few minutes then used the car alarm to find the car - a toyota camry-CLEARLY NOT AN SUV!

I booked a compact car and given a Nissan Sentra - did not know this was a mid-size and was then charged for a mid-size. Front license plate falling off and smelled like there were smokers in the car previously and covered up with a fragrance spray.
