Important information about Dayton car rentals

There are around five, plus-or-minus, rental car locations in Dayton, giving you a number of options for Dayton car rentals or passenger van rentals. Whether you grab a vehicle at the beginning of the trip, or for a short stint during it, a car will provide access to many great attractions in the city, like Sunwatch Indian Village and the National Museum of the US Air Force. If you’re planning a long-term rental, there are several public parking options, especially downtown. And with a variety of options for cheap car rentals in Dayton, a comprehensive visit to the city and surrounding areas is affordable. When you’re ready to take a trip to unwalkable sites, you can zip around the city or hop on one of the nearby major interstates, such as 70 or 75, which make traveling a breeze; however, you should avoid these roads between mid-afternoon and early evening, since they get crowded then.

Parking in Dayton is very affordable compared to other large cities, so if you’ve grabbed an economy car rental in Dayton for your trip, the two expenses combined make for a very accessible and cost-effective way to explore the city and surrounding areas with autonomy. When your car is parked, take advantage of the walkability of the city’s downtown area. When you’re ready to checkout some nearby cities—preferably outside the heavy traffic rush hours that can be found before and after work—then jump onto one of the nearby highways; major cities like Indianapolis, Indiana, as well as Cincinnati and Columbus are all within just a couple hour’s drive from Dayton.

If you’ve secured one of the many available Dayton car rentals, you’ll want to get familiar with the traffic laws before hitting the road. In Ohio, unlike some other populous states in the county, only vehicle occupants who are in the front seats, such as the driver and the passenger, are required to wear a seatbelt. That said, the drinking and driving laws are similar to ones found throughout the rest of the country. Individuals who have a BAC, or a blood alcohol content, that is 0.08% or higher are forbidden from operating a motor vehicle. Additionally, if you’ve opted for car rentals in Dayton, you’ll want to pay close attention to the posted speed limits as the speeds typically differ among rural freeways, urban freeways and other major roads. It’s always best to check with Dayton's department for motor vehicles to learn about any recent law changes.

All travelers hoping to grab a rental car in Dayton will need to hold a valid driver’s license that is government-issued and will need to present a credit card that has a large available balance. International travelers may also need to show their passport; additionally, while an International Driver’s Permit (IDP) is not necessarily a requirement, it's recommended—especially for those whose license is not in English. Regardless of country of origin, all visitors who would like to obtain a car rental in Dayton will need to be at least 21 years old.
