Why rent a car in Nashville?

The state of Tennessee in the US is famous for its country music, and Nashville is one of the main centres for it. When you rent a car in Nashville, you'll be able to get around this famous city and explore attractions like the Country Music Hall of Fame or attend a concert at the Ryman Auditorium, known as the 'mother church of country music'.

How to get to and around Nashville?

Nashville International Airport is typically less than 20 minutes from Nashville by car, so this is a great way to get into town. If you fancy a day trip, there are several places you can visit on Nashville's doorstep. Franklin, just over half an hour's drive in a Nashville rental car, was an important location in the American Civil War, and there are a number of ways to take in the history of the place, such as a guided tour of Carnton, a cotton plantation that was the site of a battle, and Carter House, which served as a command post during the civil war.

Brentwood takes around 20 minutes to reach with your Nashville hire car, and while there you can explore the range of facilities at Crockett Park, including sports fields, an event space and an amphitheatre.

    Tips and tricks for driving in the US
