Lake Tahoe Rental Cars

Most of the car rental agencies in Lake Tahoe are out of the Reno International Airport. You can book Avis & Budget Car Rentals on Sale up to 15% Off or More! online. You will be able to pick up your car right at the airport when you fly in. The drive to the Lake area is about 45 minutes from North Lake Tahoe / Truckee area, or about 35 minutes to Incline Village, Nevada via highway 267. You can find driving directions, in our "How To Get Here" section filled with Lake Tahoe maps of the area.
We strongly suggest that if you're doing your trip planning, you reserve your Tahoe rental cars in advance. It's cheaper than waiting to the last minute! During the warmer months, rent a convertible so you can see all the sites as you tour around the lake. During winter months, you must have a 4 wheel drive with mud /snow tires, or a 2-wheel drive with tire chains. Make it easy, just request the rental car companies at Reno International airport to have a car or suv with snow tires when you make your online reservation. It's the simplest way to go.

Rent a Convertible so you can see the sights!
All the locals use 4WD to get around. Yes it snows a lot, the roads get wet and icy. When you fill out the online form, be sure to indicate that you want 4WD. Don't take it for granted, that it is what you will get. If you bring your own car, be sure you carry chains, or have 4 wheel drive with mud and snow tires. If you're planning on driving a two wheel drive vehicle please be smart, carry tire chains. You may get fined for not carrying your chains in severe weather.

Lake Tahoe is a very "Green" environmentally conscious community. Whenever possible, we suggest taking public transportation as the beauty of the lake could be soiled from auto pollutants. Please respect the nature and drive sensibly, check weather before departing, and keep whatever car you bring into the area tuned up and smog checked.

Like many other resort areas, there are other modes of transportation services available from the airport or resort areas. Often times the bus transport is less expensive and just as convenient. Once you get to the resort, they will have their own transportation system to cater to you while you're on your vacation.
