Kansas Guide

Guide

The location of Kansas in the geographical centre of the United States is just one reason why the state is known as ‘the heart of America.’ The Wizard of Oz may be the most famous reference to Kansas, but there are many other reasons why many residents believe ‘there’s no place like home’. Kansas’ most populous city, Wichita, is known as the world’s air capital for its numerous aerospace companies and impressive air museum. Much of Kansas City lies within the borders of neighbouring Missouri.

Hiring a Vehicle

Wichita Mid-Continent Airport, Manhattan Regional Airport, and all of this vast state’s major cities offer options to pick-up or drop-off a rental vehicle. Many visitors also choose to obtain vehicles at Kansas City International Airport in Missouri before driving into Kansas. Hertz, Budget, Avis, and many more suppliers are well represented in Kansas, but travellers should compare car hire before starting their trip to get the best prices.

Transport Options

Wichita Mid-Continent Airport is the biggest airport within the state’s borders, while the far busier Kansas City International Airport lies on the city’s Missouri side. The smaller Manhattan Regional Airport offers daily non-stop Chicago and Dallas flights. Kansas has few public transportation options apart from seven stops along Amtrak's Southwest Chief route, so most visitors choose car rental in Kansas.

Car Hire Driving Tips in Kansas

Driving is definitely the easiest way to travel in Kansas, whose state highway system is the United States’ largest outside of California. Many state highways provide more scenic alternatives to the frequently flat terrain along the two main interstate highways, the east to west I-70 and the north to south I-35. Calling 511 will connect visitors to Kansas 511, a travel information service updated every 15 minutes.

Not to be Missed!

Many of Kansas’ most interesting attractions are situated within the smaller communities. Hutchinson, home of the annual Kansas State Fair, contains the world’s second biggest space museum. Lawrence is a college town and its nightlife and cultural scene rival those of much larger cities both in Kansas and throughout the Midwest. Wizard of Oz fans may want to drive their car hire in Kansas to Liberal’s Seward County Museum, which contains replicas of Dorothy’s house, the yellow brick road, and Oz itself.

Weather & Tourist Seasons

Kansas ranks among the top 10 sunniest American states, but its hot summers tend to be less humid in the western third of Kansas than in the hillier eastern portion. Although warm Chinook winds sometimes warm western Kansas winters up to 27°C, average Kansas winter temperatures are far colder with frequent blizzards and ice storms in the northern parts. On average, 50 twisters strike Kansas during the spring and early summer tornado season.

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? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. 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).
