New Jersey car rental information

What are the driving conditions like in New Jersey?

During the winter months, New Jersey often experiences rain and snow. If you will be driving a car rental in the state during this time period, make sure to be as cautious as possible. It is best to decrease your speed limit, use your headlights, and turn your windshield wipers on during wet weather. When driving car rentals in New Jersey, you will also want to keep your eyes open for some of the main roads that connect different regions and lead you to the state’s largest cities. For example, Interstate 287 runs throughout the northern part of New Jersey and goes through Middlesex and Somerset counties. There is also Interstate 295 which runs through the length of Trenton.

What laws should I be aware of when driving in New Jersey?

An easy way to be as careful as possible when driving a car rental in New Jersey is by keeping up-to-date on the state’s different traffic laws and regulations. For example, if you are on a street or highway that has multiple lanes, try to stay in the right-hand lane unless you are passing someone else. If a child is less than eight years old, they must be in a proper child’s seat whenever in a vehicle. Unless it is prohibited by a sign, you are generally allowed to make a right-hand turn at a red light. Even if they are not crossing the street in a marked area, pedestrians always have the right away.

What documents do I need to rent a car in New Jersey?

To rent a car in New Jersey, even cheap car rentals, you will need to present your chosen company with a government-issued driver’s license that will not expire until after your rental period is completed. Most companies require their customers to be a minimum of 21 years old in order to book a vehicle. If you are under the age of 25, you may still be required to pay an underage driver’s fee. Even if you are not from the United States, you will typically still be allowed to rent a car by providing either a license from your home country or an international driver’s license. If you will be using either of these, make sure to bring your passport with you, as your company may wish to keep a copy of it on file.
