Cincinnati Guide


Cincinnati is known for the friendly, cheerful demeanour of its locals, lively nightlife, and manifold cultural and architectural attractions, which cumulatively make it a delightful destination for visitors.

Cincinnati Zoo is known worldwide for its impressive collection of endangered species, including gorillas and white tigers. Within the grounds is the Joseph Spaulding Children’s Zoo, with an animal nursery that provides youngsters with a unique interactive experience. The Botanical Garden boasts a re-created desert, bonsai and rain forest environments, and the large Bird Garden also features among the zoo’s attractions.

Centrally located in the heart of Cincinnati city is Fountain Square, one of the many public art fixtures in the area. Opposite the square is Carew Tower, with a gallery graced with superb views of the city’s parks and neighbourhoods, Mount Adams to the northeast, and the Ohio River.

The Union Terminal rail depot, once a functioning train station, is an architecturally magnificent, classical Art Deco building which today remains the largest half-dome building in the world and houses two notable museums. The Cincinnati Historical Museum documents the city’s African-American roots and the WWII era; while the Museum of Natural History and Science features an array of large displays and interactive exhibits and includes a Children’s Discovery Centre.

The Mount Adams neighbourhood, situated only five minutes away from the city centre, offers a broad range of activities for the visitor. Within the enormous green expanse of Eden Park is the Cincinnati Art Museum, with a phenomenal collection of artwork than spans the last 5,000 years of history.

Strolling on from the park will take you through winding streets and past beautiful 19th century homes to the central area of the neighbourhood, where there is a wide variety of fashionable shops and restaurants. The area is also permeated with pubs and clubs, which are the basis for a lively after-dark social scene.

The city also caters to outdoor enthusiasts, with a wide range of parks and riverside areas perfect for leisure opportunities. Walking and jogging are popular, especially on Central Parkway, the Suspension Bridge and along the river. Cyclists can head for the Little Miami Scenic River Bikeway, a pleasant 35kms pathway. Additionally, sports fans visiting Cincinnati at the right time of year can watch professional baseball and football games at the Riverfront Stadium.

To & From

Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport is one of the world’s fastest growing and most modern airports. It is situated approximately 16kms southwest of Cincinnati on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River. This sizeable airport is an important transportation hub, offering flights to 125 cities all over the US on a daily basis.

Outside of the country, London, Montreal, Nassau, Frankfurt, Paris and Toronto are also served daily. Airport shuttles, private shuttles and taxis are all available to provide transport from the airport into the city.

Cincinnati is well-connected to other towns and cities in Ohio, and to other states in the country, by the network of interstate highways that run through and around it. Interstate 74 from Indianapolis loops around Cincinnati before making its way northeast to Columbus. I-71 from Louisville joins I-75 from Lexington at Kentucky and then skirts the city; I-75 moves on northwards to Toledo.

Three trains leave Cincinnati weekly, destined for Indianapolis and Chicago. They depart from the beautiful Amtrak station at the Cincinnati Museum Centre, a worthwhile attraction in itself.

Greyhound buses, leaving from the station within two kilometres of the city centre, connect Cincinnati to all major cities in Ohio and beyond.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
