Car rental alternatives in Nashville, TN

Rock out
in Music City

It’s no secret that Nashville is the country music capital of the world — if you’re looking for honky tonk, you’ve come to the right place. Take a stroll down lower Broadway to find the tunes that fuel the city, or soak up the rich history through music tours and museums in town.

But there’s more to Nashville than just the music. Don’t miss out on a remarkable dining scene, stylish shops, and the unique, impressive Parthenon. Grab the keys to your Nashville airport car rental alternative to turn up the music and start cruising.

Nashville Favorites

Everyone in Nashville is partial to their own favorites. Take your Nashville car rental alternative for a spin around town to make your own judgements, but these great options tend not to disappoint.

Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge

For those who prefer down-home to done-up, Tootsie’s is the best honky tonk in town, and even performers doing big shows at the famous Ryman are known to chill out here.

The Johnny Cash Museum

While the Museum of Country Music will give you some insights, for diehard fans of the country legend, you’ll want to browse the largest collection of artifacts and memorabilia from The Man in Black.

Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack

They’ve been making the chicken dangerously hot at this shack for over 80 years, so you know they’re not messing around. It’s worth the inevitable wait for a taste of the mythologically addictive original recipe.

Derrick was very understanding of the need that I had. The day of the rental I have two turo host cancel at the last minute. Turo customer service worked quickly to get me a vehicle so that I could get my car in the shop. I would recommend Derrick. You won’t be sorry.

Loretta Lynn’s Ranch

Because how often do you get to camp out on a country star’s ranch? To take a tour of Loretta’s museum or catch a show at the ranch, make the two-hour drive in your Nashville car rental alternative.

Robert when out of his way to make sure I had a great experience! If you want to rent a car, and not have any troubles, He’s the one to go to! The car was perfectly clean. He dropped the car at the airport for me, and made pickup super easy. The car rental was the highlight of my trip! Thank you Robert!

I was very lucky to have Kennedy for my rental in Nashville. He met me curbside at the airport, handed me the keys and said have fun. The Benz was tight! I'm not used to driving luxury but the car ran great and was fun to drive! AC worked great in the 95 degree heat. Kennedy was very laid back and friendly too and he was flexible with drop off. You should rent from him if you travel to Nashville!

This was my first time using the Turo app. It was really easy and way cheaper then standard rental car services. I scheduled when I wanted to pick up and return the vehicle, replenished the gas I used, got a minimal coverage insurance option, and bam the car was mine! Super convenient and would definitely use this service again.

Great choice for our first time in Nashville, TN. We went the extra mile and took a drive out to Metropolis, IL to see all the Superman stuff and it was a great round trip. Be aware, limited space in the trunk. Our backpacks did fit which was awesome for the day trips. Overall Great experience renting from Antonio. A++++

Awesome car from an awesome person. Zuberi was nice, helpful, professional and really cares about your experience.

Thank you again Zuberi.

Our flight was delayed and Alexander rolled with it and made it easy for us to get Raven when we landed.The car was excellent and got plenty of attention so dont rent if you dont want people staring and looking at the Tesla. Thanks to a faulty supercharger at cookesville we were late getting to the airport and again Alexander pulled through for us to allow us to jump on the flight and leave it for him in short term. Would love to rent from Alexander again if we are in Nashville. Thanks Alexander.

Ian G. - October 14, 2019
Tesla Model S 2015
I’ve rented a few cars on Turo now, not for this long term and not a Tesla. Alex was the best case scenario for renting any kind of car on Turo - he went well out of his way on multiple occasions to help me figure the best place to charge and even offered to drive us back home after we dropped the car off. He was incredibly kind and accommodating, there isn’t another car I’ll rent while in Nashville.
Andrew H. - September 18, 2019

Matthew was a great host. We couldn’t have had a better time. Every aspect of the rental was easy and I would highly recommend getting this car from him. I may have even convinced my wife that we need to get a Tesla. Thanks Matthew.

There are not enough great things to say about Tyler and his Audi!!

Afiya C. - October 20, 2019
BMW 7 Series 2014
Pick-up and drop-off were a breeze. Very convenient and easy. Communication was exceptional and prompt. Keonna was courteous and pleasant. All of these positives, in and of themselves, are enough to make me confident recommending Keonna and her vehicle to my closest friends and family... and I haven't even mentioned the BEST part. The car is AWESOME. Very clean, sophisticated, powerful, spacious, smooth, responsive; just about everything you would expect out of a high-end BMW can be found in this car. I definitely spent more than a few minutes familiarizing myself with the vehicle before hitting the road; there are a LOT of buttons in this car. Once I felt comfortable with where things were located, how they worked, and had my Bluetooth all set up.. the car drives like a dream. The moment I arrived at my first destination in this beaut, I was Googling like crazy BMW 7 Series for sale near my home. Overall, I LOVED the car. The rental process was seamless and simple. Keonna was wonderful. Could not have asked for a better experience on Turo. Book with tremendous confidence... or don't so that way it will be more likely this car will be available when I return to Nashville. Bottom line, I will absolutely look to book this vehicle again when my travels return me to the area. Guaranteed!

I had a debacle with the car rental place at the airport when I got into Nashville at midnight. I did some research and found Turo where I came across Antonio’s rental.

This is the first time I’ve used Turo and I must say this was very enjoyable. Charlie was friendly and nice. I love that I was able to have the car delivered to me and picked up at my location as well. That was such a great convenience. The car was clean with a little wear and tear because of use, but overall great. I would definitely rent from Charlie again.

Teresa communicated very clearly and in a timely manner. There were some unforeseen circumstances right before our trip, which she notified me of different options and helped us settle on something that would make both parties happy. Pick up and drop off were a breeze. Her car is exactly as advertised and made our girls weekend in Nashville go smoothly! Would definitely rent from her again.

Randal is a great host. Convenient pickup and dropoff at the airport. She was able to accommodate our schedule changes for return time and her Toyota Prius is all you can expect for a hybrid with great gas consumption. Also, the option for an optional infant car seat gives her an advantage over many other hosts.
