Missouri Guide


Once the haunt of the Sioux and a hub for the famous Oregon Pioneer trail, Missouri, known as the Gateway to the West, was a historic centre for the settlement of the mid-west and border states in the late 18th and 19th centuries by immigrants from Canada and Europe. Famous cities in the region include St Louis, Kansas City and Springfield, located on the spectacular Ozarks Plateau, home to the Hillbillies. Exploring the state with car hire in Missouri  is the best way to go.

Hiring a Vehicle

For the best rate on your chosen vehicle, compare car hire before you leave on your holiday. All the reliable international rental firms have facilities in St Louis and Kansa City airports as well as in the downtown districts of the cities. Trusted firms include Alamo, Payless, Thrifty, Ace, Dollar, National and Fox.

Transport Options

If you’re arriving by air, note that the two largest airports at Kansas City and St Louis don’t offer direct international  flights from Europe, but do provide connecting routes to major US air hubs such as New York, Washington, San Francisco and Los Angeles as well as Toronto. Seventeen Interstate highways cross the region, with St Louis and Kansas City both centres for touring by car.

Car Hire Driving Tips

UK drivers will need their British driver’s license to arrange car rental in Missouri. Speed limits on major roads here vary between 60 and 70mph (96-112kph) and drink-driving penalties include jail and US $500 fines for a first offence. Both driving standards and road conditions in the state are good, as is directional signposting.

Not to be Missed!

If you’re a fan of outdoor sports such as riding, hiking and trekking, birding, fishing or canoeing and kayaking, head for the Ozarks and you’ll find as many opportunities in spectacular settings as you can take in a single holiday. Missouri saw many conflicts during the American Civil War, and tourists are able to visit famous battle sites such as Lexington and Wilson’s Creek.

Weather & Tourist Seasons

Extremes of temperature, cold winters, steaming hot summers, thunderstorms and the occasional devastating tornado are all features of Missouri’s weather patterns. During the southern region’s summer months, highs of 35˚C are normal, as are freezing winters, although the central and northern areas show fewer dramatic variations. If you’re touring during the tornado season of spring and summer, local radio and online sites give tornado warnings.

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).
