Important information about Columbus car rentals

Can I drive to other states, regions, or countries with a rental car from Columbus?

Once you rent a car from any of the cheap car rentals in Columbus, you can drive it to any part of the country. However, you can only drive it to Mexico or Canada if you meet certain qualifications. Foremost, you must inform your Columbus car rental that you intend to drive the car you rent from them to Mexico or Canada. Next, you must show that you are a US national or permanent country resident. Finally, you must have a non-resident insurance card. This card will show Canadian/Mexican authorities that the car you are driving has insurance coverage that works in their country. Given that most car rentals in Columbus offer non-resident insurance cards at a fee, it's safe to say you can easily find one to rent from.

Can you rent a car in Columbus without a credit card?

Most car rentals in Columbus accept debit cards. Hence, if you'd love to rent a car in Columbus without a credit card, you can do so with ease. Avis is one of the top car rentals in Columbus. At this car rental, you can easily rent a car with a debit card registered in your name, provided you're over 25 years old and you have adequate money in the account linked to your debit card when you pick up your rental. Enterprise is another highly-rated car rental in Columbus that accepts debit cards. To rent a car from this car rental location in Columbus with your debit card, you'll only need to show proof of insurance or current utility bills.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Columbus?

Before getting a car from a Columbus car rental, it's advisable that you get conversant with some traffic laws. One of the laws you should know is that driving at a speed less than the reasonable speed with respect to the surface, traffic, and width of the street or highway is prohibited in Columbus. Another law you should know is about who has the right of way at a two-way stop. When you get to or enter an intersection from different highways or streets at around the same instance with another vehicle, if you're situated on the left, you will have to yield the right-of-way to the car on your right. Additionally, in Columbus, you'll be required to move over for police cars, emergency vehicles, garbage trucks, wreckers, and sanitation trucks. If you cannot move over due to heavy traffic, you'll need to slow down to 10 mph below the speed limit and prepare to stop at the first chance.

What documents does an international traveler need to rent a car in Columbus?

If you're an international traveler, you'll need a valid driving license that's unexpired and has a photograph of you to rent a car in Columbus. The language your license is in will define whether you’ll require an International Driver’s Permit. In case your license is not in English, but its letters are, you don’t have to have an IDP, although it is recommended that you have one for translation purposes. On the contrary, if your license is not in English and its letters aren’t in English as well, you’ll require an IDP. Given that the USA doesn't issue IDPs to foreign travelers, if you’ll require one, you'll have to get it before traveling. However, if you won’t be able to obtain an IDP in your country, another professional, type-written translation can be used as a substitute.
