Getting around Greensboro

The local airport is Piedmont Triad International Airport (PTI), which is about a 20-minute drive to downtown. Beau says it can be cheaper to fly into Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) or Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT), but it’s not as convenient to use those airports. Use our Expedia tool below to find flight, hotel, and rental car options.

Beau says that it’s a good idea to rent a car since a lot of attractions are not within walking distance. For the best rental car offers, visit Avis, Budget, or Hertz.

Uber and Lyft are excellent ways to get around.

When you only need a car for a couple of hours, you can rent by the hour with Zipcar. Join now to get $25 loaded into your account.
