Top tips for renting a car in Vermont

  • Everyone in the vehicle, adults and kids, should wear a seatbelt at all times. Whether you’re in the front or the back row, you’re required to wear a seatbelt. The exceptions to the rule are children under eight, who should be in a proper child restraint device. Those below three should be in a rear-facing car seat, those between four and five in a forward-facing car seat, and the rest in a booster seat. If you don’t have your child restraint device with you, don’t fret. You can rent one at the rental counter when you pick up your rental car.
  • Rental agencies in Vermont will allow you to cross both state and international borders with their cars. Travel into Mexico isn’t allowed, but you can travel into Canada. Inform the rental agency of your travel plans to Canada to be issued with a Canadian non-residence insurance card. This card allows you to drive your US vehicle in Canada and offers protection in case of an accident. However, note that some vehicle classes are not available for cross-border travel, such as exotic and premium SUVs.
  • When driving in Vermont, you will encounter several toll roads. Unfortunately, the handy electronic toll pass usually offered by rental agencies will not do you any good since the tolls in Vermont only accept cash. Accordingly, ensure you travel with some cash on hand in order to pay the toll. The following are toll roads in Vermont: Mt. Mansfield toll road, Equinox Skyline Drive, and The Burke Mountain toll road.

FAQs about renting a car in Vermont

  • Should I rent a car in Vermont?

    Getting a rental car in Vermont is a great idea. There are many benefits of having your own set of wheels when visiting Vermont. First, the area is large and the attractions far from each other. Only with a rental car can you hope to see most of the sights, plus, even the remotest of Vermont hidden gems are within reach. Secondly, a car rental gives you the flexibility to plan your trip as well as provides you with everyday conveniences, such as air conditioning, comfortable seating, and entertainment. Getting a Vermont rental car also saves you from the hassle of having to bring your luggage to every stop you make. Getting a Vermont rental car when visiting the region is definitely a no-brainer.

  • What is driving like in Vermont?

    Before hitting the road in a Vermont rental car, there are a few things to keep in mind. In Vermont, speed limits are strictly enforced. Don’t go over 65 mph on rural freeways and 55 mph on urban freeways. If you’re on an undivided rural road, stick to 50 mph, and 55 mph if it’s divided. If you are driving in a residential zone, keep your rental car’s speed below 25 mph. Don’t text or call when driving unless you’re using a hands-free kit. Always yield to emergency vehicles with flashing lights, and if you’re approaching one from the rear, pull over to the side or slow down and move at least one lane over. Pedestrians have the right of way on crosswalks, even if the traffic light has already changed, so be patient and let them cross.

    You need to be at least twenty one to get a rental car in Vermont.

Drivers below twenty five are considered young drivers by most rental agencies and will incur a young driver’s fee, charged daily.
