There’s two sides to the magnificent state of Nevada - it’s where you can enjoy the fantasy entertainment world of Las Vegas or escape into some of America’s most inspiring wilderness areas.
One thing they do share, however, is that it’s easiest to get around with a hire car. You’ll find we have branches right across the state, including Las Vegas’s McCarran Airport and the famous Strip, and all the other cities like Reno, Carson City and Lake Tahoe so hiring a car is easy. Don’t forget, you can pick up a vehicle at one of our locations and drop it at another.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

Las Vegas is the major attraction in Nevada, and its quite normal to have an exciting time in this city and never see the rest of the state. But, if you have a hire car, you can easily find another side to The Silver State - the desert and mountain wildernesses and old Wild West towns.
The centre of the fun in Las Vegas is ‘The Strip’ – a four-mile road through the centre of the city lined with hotels, casinos and white-knuckle rides. You’ll find big stars performing at venues like Caesars Palace, themed casino-hotel resorts, and lively shopping malls and open-air restaurants.
Along The Strip you’ll have to suspend your sense of reality while you watch extraordinary regular displays like the Bellagio’s huge fountains and the Mirage’s volcanic eruption or take a ride with a singing gondolier along the canals in the Venetian Hotel.
It’s a non-stop assault on the senses - you can be browsing ‘the world’s largest gift shop’ one moment then peering from the 1,149-foot high Stratosphere viewing deck the next. You can walk in a glass tunnel through a shark tank at the Mandalay Bay hotel then shop in a 24-hour discount mall alongside it.
Just a few miles away from The Strip, you’ll find things turn much more tranquil. Start by relaxing in the Las Vegas Springs preserve, a garden of Nevada desert plants, or take a drive through the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. You can wander miles of hiking trails or sample the facilities for climbing, horse riding and mountain biking.
A little further away you can explore The Valley of Fire State Park, where ancient rocks have weathered into all sorts of shapes and colours. Cool off with a dip at the sandy beaches at Lake Mead nearby.
Nevada has plenty of major sights – you just have to drive a short way to find them. It’s less than an hour from The Strip to the iconic sight of the Hoover Dam on the Colorado River. You can walk across the top with dizzy views below or tour the vast underground turbines in action.
Further north, you can dispel all thoughts of Las Vegas amid more than 200 square miles of the Great Basin National Park and Highland Ridge Wilderness. You can wander the trails through this arid mountainous landscape, spotting the Bristlecone pines that are among the oldest living trees on the planet.
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.
