Maine car rental information

Driving in Maine can be interesting considering that the roads are not generally in good condition. This is weather-dependent since heavy rain or snow can force the closure of small highways and backroads. The state has begun to repave some of its roads with a process called chip seal, which provides a smooth surface at an affordable price. The best cars for your car rental in Maine are 4x4 vehicles. Be aware that a rental car can only be rented in major cities, and not every area has a car rental agency that offers them. Even in the summer, it's recommended to rent a four-wheel-drive vehicle since many backcountry roads are unpaved (gravel). During the winter, an all-wheel or a snow-tire-equipped vehicle is highly recommended. The major highway connecting northern Maine to southern New England is Interstate 95.

The city of Portland prohibits vehicles over 6,000 pounds on most of the roads in town. Driving a rental car in Maine is much the same as driving your own vehicle. However, getting caught drunk driving in Maine can lead to steep penalties, such as a license suspension. The state also has mandatory seat belt laws and zero tolerance for driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, among other rules. Those with an out-of-state license should bring any required paperwork like an IDP (international driving permit) in order to drive legally in Maine. It is critical that you read the insurance information in your rental car agreement because there may be limitations to the coverage provided by the company. The last thing you want is to find out that an accident means a large fine for you when all along you thought it was covered.

Before going for a cheap car rental in Maine, you need to present your driver's license. This needs to be either an official state or federal-issued one. The minimum age to rent a car in Maine is 21, and some rental agencies may require you to be at least 25 years old in order to obtain the lowest rate. Many individuals may not realize this, but having major credit cards like American Express or Diners Club can qualify you for better rates on your car rental in Maine.
