Important information about Hartford car rentals

A tour of Hartford would be considered incomplete if you didn’t stop by some of the most popular attractions in the area, such as the Connecticut State Capitol and the Legendary Mark Twain House & Museum. All these areas and many more would be easy to reach if you had car rentals in Hartford. This is because it would be easier to navigate the I-91 and I-84, which are the major interstate highways connecting different parts of Hartford to the rest of Connecticut. Also, with traffic not being as common as it is in other parts of Connecticut, you don’t have to worry about spending hours on the road. Finding a cheap car rental in Hartford is quite easy because there are over 10 car rental locations around town, each one availing a variety of cars ranging from electric to luxury cars and even passenger van rentals.

Is it worthwhile renting a car while visiting Hartford?

With pedestrian crossings and walkways on virtually every street, Hartford is a very walkable town. However, the trouble comes in when you want to get out of the city center and into the suburbs where most of the tourist attractions are. The distances are quite long, and it wouldn’t be a very good experience if you had to walk from one place to another. That is why you are much better off getting car rentals in Hartford. You will be able to move with ease and comfort. A rental car also makes it easier for you to visit other attractions outside of Hartford, such as Cove Island Park and Mianus River Park, which are just over an hour’s drive out in Stamford. Street parking isn’t hard to come by as there are spots everywhere, although most of them are metered. However, on weekdays late in the evening and throughout the weekend, you can find free parking.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind when driving in Hartford?

To avoid bringing home a ticket as a souvenir from your trip to Hartford, you should familiarize yourself with some of the unique driving laws that apply to Hartford. For example, drivers aren’t allowed to use hand-held phones or any other electronic mobile devices while driving or even when stopped as a result of traffic or difficult road conditions. The only time you can use them in your car rentals in Hartford is when safely parked on the side of the road. Also, U-turns are illegal in some places, so drivers are urged to look out for signs that may prohibit that action. In case of any doubt, you can always go through the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles traffic laws to confirm.

What kind of driver’s license do you need to rent a car in Hartford?

For you to be able to get a rental car in Hartford, you should display a valid driver’s license with a photo ID. The license shouldn’t be expiring before the duration of the rental agreement is over. The license could be from any state in the US or Canada. For foreign drivers, your license must be written in the Roman alphabet, and if not, you should have an international driver’s permit with you for any Hartford car rentals. You will also need to show a valid passport.
