Delaware car rental information

Driving conditions in Delaware are some of the best in the United States, making it ideal to consider a car rental here. Some major highways include US 40, I-95 and US 13. Driving is pretty easy as you rarely encounter traffic jams and there are no special regulations enforced throughout much of the state. For the most part, road conditions change very little throughout the year. In colder months, some roads are snow-covered for longer periods of time but driving is still easy and almost all of the major highways remain open during this period.

In Delaware, you need to be at least 16 years of age to get your license, and those between the ages of 18-21 must pay an additional fee for their first year on the road. If you're from out of state, then you can use your home country's driving license as long as the issuing state is a member of the Interstate Driver License Compact. Otherwise, you'll need to obtain a Delaware driver's license if you plan on staying in this area for more than 90 days. You must have a blood alcohol level at or below 0.08% and if caught driving while intoxicated with a level that exceeds it, you will face stiff penalties. You must also have your headlights on at all times when driving in Delaware and use your seatbelt at all times while operating the vehicle. It is also illegal to place anything that obstructs your view or to use handheld devices while driving. Since some traffic laws may change from city to city, it's best to consult the local user's manual or the city's department of motor vehicles for any updates.

You must have a valid driver's license and be at least 25 years of age for car rentals in Delaware. During the process of acquiring your vehicle, you'll need to provide proof of insurance; if it is not provided, then you will be tagged with a hefty penalty for violating state law. For foreigners, it is recommended that you obtain an International Driving Permit. Ensure that the name on the permit matches your driver's license. You must also have your credit or debit card handy for the sake of paying the car rental agency. You may also be required to purchase an additional insurance policy in case of any damage or loss while you have possession of the vehicle.
