Important information about Durham car rentals

Car rentals in Durham provide a great way to move around the city and explore some of its most iconic sites and attractions. You will be able to visit exciting places such as the Durham Bulls Athletic Park and the Cameron Indoor Stadium for sports lovers, as well as the Durham Performing Arts Center and Eno River State Park. With your rental car, you can easily navigate I-40 and I-85, which are the major highways connecting the various parts of Durham. Finding a cheap rental car in Durham shouldn’t be a complicated task as there are about a dozen rental car locations around town, and you are almost guaranteed to find any type of rental car you want, from luxury car rentals in Durham to electric rental cars and even passenger van rentals. There's also plenty of parking available in the city.

Durham is not particularly walkable as there are very limited sidewalks and it can be quite difficult to move around Durham as you explore the best that this city has to offer if you don’t have a car. Car rentals in Durham provide an element of flexibility and convenience whereby you can go anywhere you want at any time. You can even visit neighboring cities, such as Rocky Mount, where there is a plethora of things to do. Traffic isn’t a big issue as it only affects the morning and early evening hours, so you should get around just fine. If you’re concerned about parking spaces, there’s nothing to worry about as there are plenty of street parking slots around town, although most of them are usually metered. If you’d rather leave your rental cars in Durham in a guarded parking lot for extra security, don’t worry, there are plenty of those too.

Before getting a Durham car rental and hitting the road, it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with some of the unique laws of the land to avoid getting into any trouble with the local authorities. One significant law is the move-over law, which requires motorists to shift to another lane when they come across stopped emergency vehicles that have flashing lights. This applies for fire trucks, ambulances, tow trucks, and any other type of emergency vehicle. If it is not possible for the driver to move over one lane, then they are supposed to reduce their speed significantly in order to protect those working on the side of the road. In case you’re not sure about a particular law, you can always confirm with the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles.

For you to get car rentals in Durham, you have to provide a valid driver’s license accompanied by a photo ID. The license shouldn’t expire any time before you go back to your resident country; otherwise, you won’t be able to get the rental car. For international drivers (those from outside the US and Canada), a license from your home country should be enough alongside a valid passport. The license should be written in the Latin alphabet or have an English translation. If not, then you will need to show an international driver’s permit.
