Location information for Memphis

Introduction

Memphis is a large city but not the capital (that's Nashville) of the American state of Tennessee. Together with Nashville, it's a musical city with attractions like BB King’s Blues Club and Graceland, Elvis Presley's former estate.

Population

The city has approximately 700,000 inhabitants. Since the turn of the century the number of inhabitants has decreased, but in recent years people seem to rediscover Memphis. Many have settled in the, until recently practically depopulated, Downtown area.

Location

Memphis is located in the far southwest of the state of Tennessee in the southeast of the United States. The city center is built along the steep bank of the Mississippi River, but the city's suburbs stretch far south, until the neighboring state of Mississippi.

Economy

Memphis lies on a junction of roads and waterways and the transportation sector therefore plays a central role in local economy. The city's airport is the world's busiest cargo airport. It has everything to do with cargo transport giant FedEx being headquartered in Memphis.

Airports

Memphis International Airport is situated about 20 car kilometers southeast of the city center. Thanks to freeways crossing the city, the airport is easily reachable by rental car via the I-40 and the I-240. The road to the airport is called Airways Boulevard and the exit is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

The public city transport is exploited by the Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA). The network is extensive, but there are significantly less buses at night and during weekends. Some lines are then also combined or changed, which can be confusing for visitors. The trolley bus between Downtown and Midtown is mainly meant for tourists.

Traffic and Parking

If you want to see more than the center of Memphis a rental car is an ideal means of transportation. As in any large city, it's better to avoid rush hour, but other than that traffic isn't that bad. This is due to Memphis' excellent infrastructure, which consists of a good and efficient system of freeways. It's difficult to find a free parking place in the street, but there are several parking garages. One of the cheapest Downtown is a garage with a sign in neon letters: Parking can be Fun. This garage with the appropriate name can be found on Union Avenue.

Hotels

Memphis has a large choice of accommodations, although budget travelers will have difficulty finding a suitable room. Cheaper hotels can be found on the other side of the river, in West Memphis (which by the way lies in Arkansas).

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
