Nevada Guide


Many visitors spend their entire Nevada stay inside the casinos of Reno, Lake Tahoe, and Las Vegas. However, Nevada has far more to offer than legalised gambling. Visitors who prefer outdoor activities will undoubtedly enjoy Great Basin National Park’s centuries old pine trees and ancient Lehman Caves. Car rental in Nevada is the only way to reach Great Basin National Park and most of the state’s other hidden attractions.

Hiring a Vehicle

McCarran International Airport has a separate building where car rental companies such as Advantage, Avis, Budget, Hertz, Payless and several others have their offices, though visitors would be advised to compare car hire in advance in order to secure the vehicle of their choice and the best price. Several suppliers operate among the mega casinos at the Las Vegas Strip and Nevada’s smaller gambling centres. Four-wheel drive vehicles are the safest way to travel on Nevada’s isolated desert and mountain roads, especially in winter.

Transport Options

Las Vegas is home to Nevada’s biggest airport, McCarran International Airport, while Reno-Tahoe International Airport serves Nevada’s two other major gambling centres. Public transportation options in Nevada are few and far between apart from a Las Vegas monorail and bus services in Las Vegas, Reno, and Carson City. Sparks and Reno are also stops on Amtrak's California Zephyr rail line.

Car Hire Driving Tips in Nevada

Most motorists entering Nevada from California use I-15 to arrive in Las Vegas or I-80 to enter Reno, but there is no major road linking Reno and Las Vegas. U.S. Route 50, known as America’s loneliest highway, contains only three tiny towns along its 409-mile stretch between the Utah community of Delta and Fallon, Nevada. Drivers should take extra precautions when driving on isolated Nevada roads, such as watching out for livestock, who have the right of way, and carrying extra fuel and water.

Not to be Missed!

Despite its desolate nickname, U.S. Route 50 actually takes drivers using car hire in Nevada past many of the state’s finest tourist attractions. The route’s Nevada portion begins in Lake Tahoe and ends at beautiful Great Basin National Park. In between Fort Churchill State Historic Park, where a Pony Express way station stands next to some army fort remains, and Carson City, Nevada’s state capital, which contains many of Nevada’s legalised brothels.

Weather & Tourist Seasons

Weather is rarely an issue for Nevada visitors who never leave the indoor casinos, but those who plan on spending substantial time outdoors should avoid the extreme desert temperatures, which can soar as high as 52°C on summer days and plummet as low as -46°C. Autumn and spring temperatures are far less extreme. Winters are much colder and longer in northern Nevada than in Las Vegas. The Sierra Nevada mountain range receives most of Nevada’s scarce showers.

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).
