The state of Kentucky is situated in the eastern United States, and has a distinct Southern identity. KY is also known as the 'Bluegrass State' because of the bluegrass that can be found growing around the area within its potent soil. Hiring a car in Kentucky means that you can head to the attractions the state is known for. These include automobile manufacturing so check out the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY, and horseracing - take a trip to Chuchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby, if you enjoy the competitive spirit of a good race.
Rent a car in Kentucky and visit the longest cave system in the world. Drive to south central Kentucky and visit Mammoth Cave National Park, which is home to more than 400 miles of explored caves. Kentucky is well known for the Kentucky Derby so why not explore the Kentucky Derby Museum in the state's largest city, Louisville. Here you can find out all about the history and traditions of thoroughbred horse racing, before making your way into the famous stadium for a race meeting.
Driving rules vary from state to state so it is wise to familiarise yourself before you set off. Make sure you remember that at a red light you are allowed to turn right as long as there is not a sign telling you otherwise. You should still come to a complete stop first, just to make sure that the road is completely clear. When arriving at a crossroad, the vehicle that arrives first moves off first. If more than one vehicle arrives at the same time you must give way to the driver on the right.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
