Top tips for renting a car in Newfoundland and Labrador

  • The weather in Newfoundland and Labrador can change in an instant; drivers may experience sunshine, rain, fog, and strong winds on a single car ride. If you are driving and experience this extreme weather, slow down and keep the headlights on, especially if it rains. In certain winter months, snowfall can be heavy. Avoid driving during blizzards, and watch out for drifting snow.
  • If you plan on visiting Newfoundland and Labrador, you’ll likely drive on the Trans-Canada Highway, as it connects major parts of the region. The roads are excellent and have plenty of clear signage. Regional highways are narrower than the TransCanada Highway. Drivers can also use provincial highways with two-way traffic; if you drive on these roads, keep an eye out for potholes. If you are visiting the coastal towns in the region, you might encounter steep hills, sharp curves, twists, and turns, so be extra careful driving on these roads.
  • If you’ll be driving in Newfoundland and Labrador with children, make sure that all infants and children are secured in booster seats or car seats appropriate for their age. All children must ride in the car's rear seat, and infants weighing less than 20 pounds should ride in rear-facing car seats. When driving, if you see a yellow school bus flashing lights while stopping to pick up kids, you must stop until the flashing lights are turned off. If you are on a multi-lane road, all vehicles must stop for a school bus.
  • When driving in Newfoundland and Labrador, make sure to keep the region’s driving laws in mind. Distracted driving is highly prohibited in this area. If you must use a mobile phone while driving, consider using a hands-free device. All passengers, including the driver, must always wear their seat belts. Drunk driving is prohibited, and Newfoundland and Labrador's impaired driving laws are serious. Drivers age twenty two and younger must maintain zero blood-alcohol levels.

FAQs about renting a car in Newfoundland and Labrador

  • Should I rent a car in Newfoundland and Labrador?

    A car rental in Newfoundland and Labrador gives you the freedom to explore Gros Morne National Park, The Rooms, and Signal Hill, among other fantastic attractions in the area. Traversing most areas of Newfoundland and Labrador without a car can be pretty tough because you have to rely on public transportation, which can be unreliable and puts you at the mercy of their schedules. Plus, travelers are likely to be limited outside of the region's major city centers, like St. John's. Consider getting a car rental if you want to avoid the hassle of keeping to schedules, dealing with congested spaces, and paying peak-fare charges. A car rental in Newfoundland and Labrador is convenient, flexible, and reliable.

Highways will have signage indicating the given speed limit. Failure to obey the speed limit can cost you a steep fine. Radar detectors are prohibited. If you pass a car stopped at the roadside or a pulled-over emergency vehicle, slow down and move to the lane on your left, and always yield to emergency vehicles. Construction zones along roads are marked with orange signs, and if you pass though these zones, always slow down. When approaching an intersection, the traffic on your right-hand side has the right of way.
