The capital of the US state of Georgia, Atlanta’s pivotal role in both the Civil War and the 1960s Civil Rights Movement has made the city a popular destination with history buffs who come to visit its myriad of heritage landmarks and institutions. Beyond its cultural attractions, Atlanta also boasts vibrant sports and music scenes, both of which contribute to attracting some 35 million visitors each year.

There are several car rental companies to be found in Atlanta, most of which are located either in the central district or near to the main airport. If you’re planning a trip to Atlanta and want the use of a high-end rental car during your time here, we’ve checked out the options and selected the best rental companies situated in various parts of the city.
If you’re flying into Atlanta and want to pick up a luxury rental car at Hartsfield–Jackson Airport, there are numerous rental desks located inside the terminal as well as close by. For the best value, we’ve picked out Sixt and Dollar, with both offering several reliable high-end cars at rates that won’t cause much financial pain. When we did an online search for dates in mid-January, we found a Sixt deal for a Toyota RAV4, which was available for $282 for a week’s rental. Thrifty, meanwhile, offered a Chevrolet Impala for $304 per week.
Atlanta’s downtown district is where most of the city’s action can be found, and if you’d like to base yourself around here, you might consider hiring your car from here too. The best agency we found in this area are Hertz, who combine good value with impressive reviews and a diverse portfolio of cars. For something a little more eye-catching, we like the GMC Terrain, which was available for $313 for a week’s rental when we searched online.
Visitors flying to Atlanta directly from other US cities may well arrive into DeKalb Peachtree Airport, which is situated just north of the city. If you’re doing so and would like to hire a luxury car from around the airport, then Avis have offices nearby. When we searched for their available cars, we found a number of excellent deals, including a Lincoln MKZ which was available for $293 for a week’s rental. Avis also have impressive customer feedback.
