Top tips for renting a car in Mississippi

  • Famous for its Southern charm and country music, Mississippi should be at the top of everyone’s travel bucket list. Whether you are traveling to the Magnolia State for business or leisure, Mississippi rental cars offer you the convenience and advantage of traveling at your own pace. However, it is important to acquaint yourself with the state’s traffic laws to avoid running into unnecessary trouble. Most interstates in Mississippi have a speed limit of 70 mph, and rural highways typically allow 65 mph. Drinking while intoxicated is a serious criminal offense in the state of Mississippi, with penalties varying depending on the severity of the crime. You could face license suspension or fines, and even jail time for repeat offenders.
  • All drivers and passengers are required to wear safety belts while driving in the state of Mississippi. Children under two must travel in the back seat in rear-facing or convertible seats. Children under seven must either be placed in restraining devices or booster seats while riding in a car in Mississippi. Violation of this rule may incur a fine. As such, if you’re planning to visit Mississippi with young children, be sure to find out whether the car you’re thinking about renting is equipped with these devices. It is illegal to operate a cell phone while driving in the state of Mississippi, unless you’re using a hands-free device.

Also, watch out for signs of danger such as slippery spots if you’re driving on wet roads, or flooded areas if it’s been raining a lot. When visibility is an issue, be sure to reduce your driving speed appropriately for the conditions on the road. Always be cautious and maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead of you, especially while driving in the rain or snow.

FAQs about renting a car in Mississippi

  • Should I rent a car in Mississippi?

    There is more to the Magnolia State than the sweet aroma and striking beauty that radiates from the blooming magnolia tree. Mississippi has plenty of interesting places that you can more easily enjoy if you’re traveling in a rental car. Whether you’re heading to the Delta region on the western side of the state or heading to the centralized capital, Jackson, there are endless things to do and places to visit; your Mississippi car rental service will ensure that you have the best chance to see everything. There are places in the state that are not covered by the public transportation network. With your rental car, you are free to visit every corner of the state whenever you want. Also, public transportation is not 100 percent reliable. Finally, renting a car gives you privacy, making it the perfect option if you’re coming to Mississippi on a romantic trip or a family vacation.
