Wichita Guide

Located in the south of Kansas, the historic Wild West town of Wichita lies on the entrance to the Great Plains and abounds in historical sites, well-preserved buildings and enthralling museums.

Considered by Frank Lloyd Wright himself to be one of his greatest works, the superb Allen-Lambe House is magnificently landscaped to appear as one with the surrounding backdrop. The historic house features sublimely beautiful architecture and is considered representative of the renowned architect’s creations.

Wichita is best explored by foot, with the old town centre remaining as it was centuries ago. Stroll past the quaint old historic structures that still stand proudly along the main streets and avenues. Highlights include the sublime 19th century Caprice Ballroom and streets wonderfully lit by gas lamps as they were in historic times.

The old town centre is an especially good area for crafts shopping and fine dining. A variety of cuisine is on hand, and the tasteful night scene is represented by charming cafés and bars.

Not far from Wichita is Kansas City, shared by both Kansas and Missouri, and famous for its great jazz clubs and jazz and blues festivals. The city also has a symphony orchestra, several theatres and a couple of first-rate art museums, including the Atkins and Kemper. Outdoor enthusiasts can head for the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, home to the last remaining remnants of the US’s once extensive tall-grass ecosystem.

Though at first it seems rather isolated, Wichita is actually not too difficult to reach. Connecting Wichita with Kansas City is I-35. From Kansas City, I-70 runs to the capital of Kansas, Topeka; to the east, I-70 goes through St Louis, Missouri and Indianapolis, all the way to Baltimore, Maryland. I-35 goes north from Wichita though Iowa and all the way to Minneapolis and beyond.

Wichita is on Amtrak’s Chicago-Los Angeles line, while Greyhound coaches run to main cities and towns. Wichita Airport has regional flights and daily direct flights to Topeka in Kansas, Omaha in Nebraska and St Louis in Missouri. The largest nearby airport is actually in the Missouri section of Kansas City, and it services flights from most major American cities and some overseas destinations.

The major suburbs in Wichita are: Bel Aire, Connell, Cow Town, Eastborough, Meadowview, Midland, Minneha, Oatville, Park City and Riverside.

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).
