Way better than a rental car

Rise and thrive in Cincinnati

Cincinnati exudes curiosity and continues to make a splash along the banks of the Ohio River. The Queen City of the West is known for its photo-worthy streets, famed BBQ and chili, and revitalized Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.

When you’re satisfied exploring the up-and-coming coffee bars, boho art cafes, mouth-watering restaurants, and microbreweries, take your Cincinnati rental car alternative out of town for even more fun and adventurous excursions.

Cincinnati favorites

Secretly bursting at the seams with rich local culture and a flourishing arts and brewery scene, Cincinnati’s trendy post-industrial vibe is capturing hearts everywhere.

purple lines

Carew Tower

For eye-popping panoramic views of Queen City, the iconic Carew Tower looks over downtown Cincinnati with shops, restaurants, and an observation deck on the 49th story.

Findlay Market

Head toward Over-the-Rhine in your Cincinnati car rental alternative and enjoy a casual lunch, a scoop of Dojo Gelato, or a sip of craft beer after browsing the cute shops and stalls at Findlay Market.

King's Island

A short 25-minute drive from downtown Cincinnati, thrill-seekers will love spending a day at King’s Island. Ride the world’s longest wooden roller coaster and then try the inverted roller coaster, the Banshee.

Awesome car, clean, and fun. Back seat is tight if that matters for you. Malcolm was easy to work with and very kind and accommodating for our trip. Would definitely rent again!
Timothy R.- June 27, 2022
The mini was a great little fun car. The pickup was very easy as Malcom had the vehicle ready and provided the parking location. I definitely would rent again.

Gautam proved to be very professional and responsive. This was far superior to any rental agency.
MrPhilbert ..- June 12, 2022
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! This is the 2nd trip in April where we seamlessly rented cars from Gautam with flights at super early and super late hours. My daughter lives in Ohio so we visit often, and I am happy to find someone friendly and convenient to use for our car rental needs. It is one less stress when planning our travel! If you are visiting the Cincinnati area, or looking to rent a car locally, this is your guy.

Hit the road

Thanks to Cincinnati’s central location, it’s easy to visit neighboring urban areas or to explore the surrounding countryside, small towns, and abundant forests for a day trip or weekend getaway.

Way better than a rental car

Yellow Springs

Spoil yourself with rocky river canyons, dense forests, and crystal clear creeks in John Bryan State Park or Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve, then refuel at the Clifton Mill, a classic American diner, just outside of Yellow Springs.

Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park

Pack some snacks and head to the Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park in your Cincinnati car rental alternative. Rain or shine, gain some creative inspiration or simply enjoy a relaxing day trip away from Queen City.

Big Bone Lick State Park

A quick half-hour drive from Cincinnati brings you to the historic and quiet Big Bone Lick State Park, with plenty of wildlife, flora, and history. Take your time and observe the protected bison on a day trip or turn your stay into a camping weekend.
