Indiana is a great state to rent a car because it has more highways per square mile than any other state. There are so many rural areas to see like Indiana Dunes National Park along Lake Michigan. A rental car is the only way to get to these distant locations because public transportation doesn’t serve these areas. Indiana is the perfect state to plan a road trip in.
Because Indiana is such an expansive state, driving in it is a pleasure, especially on the scenic routes in Northern Indiana where state parks seem to appear every few miles. SR-62 is a meandering highway that crawls through Crawford and Harrison Counties, and the trees and foliage are breathtaking. The Indiana Toll Road spans 157 miles across northern Indiana, but you can pay tolls and purchase an E-ZPass to make passing through them easier.
In Indiana, it’s important to note that new drivers under twenty five are prohibited from driving with any other passengers other than their spouse or siblings unless there is an adult twenty five or older in the vehicle. There might be additional charges for insurance. Make sure you are aware of what kind of coverage you have, either through private insurance or the agency's. It’s worth checking with various car agencies to see the exact fees.
