Top tips for renting a car in China

  • Renting a car in China, though it requires some foresight, offers the most freedom, flexibility, and comfort for getting around the country. Although there are long-distance buses available in China, they often lack comfortable conditions, while the safer and more advanced bullet trains sometimes do not have English signs, schedules, or information on routes and specific stops.
  • China is a massive country with different climates and natural conditions that you will drive through if you’re exploring a good portion of the country over land. If you’re sticking to the major cities or smaller towns like Guangzhou or Beijing, a car is all you’ll need; however, if you’re planning on going to the desert or the mountainous regions, a larger vehicle with four-wheel drive will be a necessity.
  • If you’re traveling to China with children, be advised that there are currently no laws requiring the use of child seats in vehicles or any other laws governing child restraint in vehicles. Because of this, child seats aren’t often offered as an add-on to your rental unless you rent with a large, multi-national company like Hertz or AVIS. If you prefer that your child be secured in a car seat during your time in China, you’ll have to bring your own.
  • Depending on the rental car agency you choose, it may be possible to cross borders if you have a Chinese driving license. If you’re planning to travel to the neighboring countries of Mongolia, Nepal, Russia, or Myanmar, you’ll need to ensure that you have the right entrance visa and all of the paperwork for your car (photos, correct registration, proof of insurance) to enter. Before you make your reservation, check with your rental car company to make sure they allow border crossings.
