Touching down on US soil - collecting your America rental car

If you've opted to pick up your rental car from one of America's airports, then your confirmation will advise where the relevant car hire desk is located in the Arrivals hall. Should have decided on another pick up location, then head to the address of the office detailed on your booking confirmation. On arrival, a member of the car hire provider's team will take a few minutes to check through the paperwork for the car rental agreement with you. There will be some paperwork for you to complete/sign before the keys are handed over.

You will also be reminded of the fuel policy for the hire car and and also whether there is any mileage limit in the agreement. This is especially important in a country like America, where you could easily cover a lot of miles in your USA hire car.

To make the handover process run smoothly, please ensure you have all the following with you when you pick up your hire car:

  • Printed email confirmation for each of your journeys
  • A full driving licence
  • Credit card in the lead driver's name, with the full deposit amount available
  • A valid DVLA code
  • A valid passport

When it's time to go home

When your trip of a lifetime comes to an end, check your booking confirmation for details of where to return your hire car. Before you hand the vehicle back, it will be inspected by one of the rental car provider's team.

Driving on America's roads**

Driving in the USA, in a car that is not your own, may be a daunting experience. The cars are bigger, the roads are wider and they drive on the other side of the road. While you'll be familiar with the local language, you may want to brush up on some of the driving laws. Take a look at our top tips on how to tackle America's roads once you land in the USA.

  • Left hand drive - Drive on the right-hand side of the road, overtake on the left.
  • Automatic gearbox - The majority of car hire vehicles in the USA will have an automatic gearbox. If you are not confident or cannot drive an automatic be sure to call the car hire company before you book to organise a manual car.
  • Minimum car hire age - 18 years old. Under 25's may have to pay a young driver surcharge.
  • Seatbelt/safety belts - The law in America requires all drivers and passengers to wear a seatbelt/safety belt.
  • Child restraints - Every driver must ensure that all children under 5 to be properly secured with a US government approved child restraint or car seat.
  • Fuel types - Gasoline and Diesel
  • Petrol/gas stations - Many gas stations in the USA will require you to pay before you fill up, either at the pump or inside the station. Most major credit cards are accepted but it's always worth carrying enough cash, just in case.
  • Mobile phones - While it is not illegal to make calls using a mobile phone, you can receive a ticket if you become distracted while doing so. Texting while driving is illegal.

Road safety laws

Speed limits*

  • Limited Highways - 70mph
  • Highways - 55mph
  • Business and residential areas - 30mph
  • School zones - 20mph

Driving too slowly is also against the law. You can be issued a ticket for driving too slowly. Drive with the flow of the traffic and within the speed limit.

*Although these are the standardised speed limits, there may be local variations so please be careful to check the road signs.

Drinking and driving

It is a crime in all American states to drive with more than 0.08milligrams of alcohol in your blood. In Nevada you can have your licence taken from you and the vehicle you are driving may be impounded. It is also is also illegal to have any containers of alcohol open in the car.

It is important to note that drinking alcohol and then driving may invalidate your car rental insurance, irrespective of local drink driving laws. Check your policy for full details.

Driving licence

Important Information - Changes to the UK Driving Licence

Although an International Driving Permit (IDP) is not legally required to drive in the USA, in the event of an accident, authorities will often ask for this in addition to your driving licence. As such, we recommend obtaining one before you travel.

Mobile Phones

It is not illegal in America to make calls using a mobile phone however, you can receive a ticket if you become distracted while doing so. Texting while driving is illegal

**This information should be considered as a broad overview of things to remember when hiring a car. It is therefore very important that you read the rental terms and conditions and associated policies for your own specific policy as well as doing your own research into the motoring laws of the country in which you will be driving.
