Top tips for renting a car in New Jersey

  • Because the state of New Jersey is a rather large state, the type of car you'll be able to rent is going to depend on where you plan on renting your car from. If you are looking for the widest selection of cars to rent, try renting in large cities. An even better option is to rent at major airports, such as Newark International Airport (EWR), where you will find all of the major rental car companies. For most times of the year, pretty much any type of car is going to work well, but it is important to remember that during the wintertime, roads here can get snowy and icy, making an SUV a good choice during these times of the year. No matter which type of car you rent, be sure to carry tire chains during winter driving.
  • Driving in New Jersey is not much different than driving in any other state in the United States but there are some unique rules you should know about when you drive here. If you plan on passing another vehicle, someone on a bike, or even a skateboarder that is on the road, you must honk before you pass. If you happen to come upon a horse-drawn carriage on the street, you cannot pass them in your car. One unique thing that occurs in very few states in the United States, but does happen in New Jersey, is that you are not permitted to pump your own gas here.
  • Because the state of New Jersey is not far from the United States-Canadian border, drivers may wonder if they can take their car into Canada. Most rental car companies will allow you to drive your car into Canada without any restrictions. It is important to let the rental car company know that you plan to drive the car to Canada so they can provide you with a non-resident insurance card for driving there.
