on Reno

While the city is best known for the brassy neon signs alighting a handful of downtown casinos, Reno is truly much more than a gambling grotto. Since the opening of the nearby Tesla Gigafactory, the city has drawn a crowd of younger, hipper entrepreneurial types, who are filling Midtown with well-balanced cocktails and happening live shows.

Tucked into the Sierra Nevadas, just over the hill from Lake Tahoe, Reno is blessed with magnificent alpine and desert scenery that begs to be explored, so pop into your Reno airport car rental alternative to take in the sights, sounds, and majesty.

Reno favorites

While the classic casinos are still worth a gamble and gander, there’s plenty of other charming destinations in Reno.

Riverwalk

This collection of funky boutiques, galleries, lounges, and restaurants along the Truckee River is the heart of downtown revival, and abounds with entertainment options every day.

National Automobile Museum

The Harrah Collection, as it’s also known, exhibits a number of rare and one-of-a-kind classic cars, including the 1949 Mercury Series 9CM driven by James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause.

Mount Rose

Hovering just above downtown, the local mountain is not only the quickest way to ride the slopes in the winter, it also boasts picturesque trails for hiking and mountain biking in warmer months.

Hit the road

Book your Reno car rental alternative to wild out amongst the Sierras’ thick forests, striking mountains, and alluring bodies of water.

Pickup and dropoff couldn't have gone smoother. Car was clean, everything was on time, everything in the car worked great. Kevin was incredibly easy to talk to and work with and knew the car in and out, which was helpful in learning how to get the most out of the plug in hybrid. Would rent again!

What a fantastic experience !!! Nick and Casey were top notch pleasant, punctual and available. My wife and I rented one of there Can-am Spyders and had a blast for the four days of touring around Lake Tahoe. We traveled from Denver Colorado for the long weekend. Airport pick up was a snap with pre-arrangement by Nick by Lyft. Excellent helmets were provided and instructions and safety review provided by Casey. Our journey up and around Lake Tahoe was memorable the Spyder really took it to another level. The machine worked flawlessly and is straightforward to operate. If you’re looking for s fun twist on transportation and in Reno give these guys a chance, they’ll get you all set with top notch transportation weather it’s s Can-am Spyder or one of their other top tier vehicles, I seriously doubt you’ll be disappointed. When back in Reno I’ll rent from Nick and Casey again. Extremely satisfied customer John F.

Couldn’t have been more pleased with everything. I wasn’t the easiest to accommodate because I rented for a full day 10am-10am and decided last minute to drop off the bike after dinner the first day. As long as you are communicating with them, I feel they will respect a change of drop off. Casey met me on time, and was smooth experience from start to finish. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone that enjoys riding to rent with these guys!! Would do it again in a heartbeat.
