Explore Kansas City

The city is famous for its jazz music, and listening to the great sounds of live jazz emanating from the myriad of clubs is a relaxing and fulfilling experience. Additionally, enjoy strolling down charming downtown boulevards lined with fountains and buildings resembling those of the Mediterranean, and not forgetting the art deco which can be seen throughout the city.

The jazz scene permeated by Tom Pendergast during Prohibition spawned the careers of such well-known artists as Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Charlie Parker. The excellent Jazz Museum is a great place to become acquainted with the history of the music and its interaction with African American culture; housed in the same building is the interesting Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, which retells the history of segregated baseball in America.

The outdoor City Market, open daily, is a wonderful place to hunt for great bargains on crafts and antiques, in addition to clothing, flowers and vegetables; while the more upscale Country Club Plaza has plenty to offer those wishing to splurge.

The city also boasts fine restaurants, professional football and baseball teams, and theme parks, making it a complete tourist destination in its own right.

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).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
