Nevada is a beautiful and wondrous place. From The Strip in Las Vegas to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, there are many places to visit and much ground to cover. The only way you can manage to see the colored rocks of Valley of Fire State Park and still be back on The Strip for an elegant dinner and some entertainment is if you have your own set of wheels. Having a rental car allows you to save a lot of time and gives you the freedom to explore even the remotest of locations. And whether you’re on vacation or business, a rental car will provide you with everyday pleasures, such as air conditioning, entertainment, and comfortable seating, which is typically unavailable in public transport.
Here are some things you should know before getting behind the wheel of a Nevada rental car. Within city limits, stick to 20 to 30 mph and 15 to 25 mph if you’re driving in a school zone or residential area. You can go as fast as 55 to 75 mph on undivided rural roads and 65 to 75 mph on divided rural roads. The freeways within city limits have a speed limit of 55 to 65 mph, while on those outside city limits, you can drive up to 80 mph. When you encounter an emergency vehicle in Nevada, proceed with caution or come to a stop. If possible, drive in the lane not adjacent to the one where the emergency team is working on. U-turns are generally accepted if they can be made safely unless prohibited by a traffic sign or if there’s less than 500 feet visibility in either direction.
You need to be at least twenty one to get a rental car in Nevada. Even so, there is a young driver’s surcharge applied daily to drivers below twenty five. Moreover, as a young driver, you cannot access certain rental car models, including full-size and premium SUVs, exotic and luxury vehicles, passenger vans and minivans, and signature or specialty vehicles.
