What documentation do I need to rent a car in Newport Beach, California?

In order to rent a car in Newport Beach, California, you must have attained the legal age of 25 years. If you are between the ages of 21 and 24, car rental companies can still allow you to rent a car, provided you pay a young driver surcharge in addition to meeting the standard rental requirements. You must have a valid driving license from your home state or country. Some companies may require an International Driving Permit (IDP) and a driving license if you are not from the States. In most cases, drivers whose licenses are not written in English must produce their IDPs. You will also be required to produce this if you are a foreign national, and you’ll need a valid credit card as a mode of payment for the car rental. You may use your own car insurance, but you are welcome to add coverage through the rental car company if you so wish.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Newport Beach, California?

When driving a rental car in Newport Beach, you will be required to observe the city’s road and traffic laws. The pedestrians in the city have the right of way when on the marked and unmarked crosswalks and the sidewalk. You should also make sure to yield to vehicles and pedestrians who are already passing through the intersections. California is a hands-free state, which means that you are prohibited from using your mobile or electronic device by hand while driving. If you are renting a pickup truck, you are not supposed to carry any passengers in the back of truck bed unless it has seats and seat belts. Driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or other substances that may pose a danger to yourself and other road users is prohibited. You should also be aware that the city offers special lanes for High Occupancy Vehicles (HOVs), to encourage carpooling.

Can I drive to other states, regions, or countries with a rental car from Newport Beach, California?

Yes, you can. Most rental car companies in the city allow for interstate and cross-region travel within the U.S. However, the driver intending to rent the car must duly inform the rental company before driving it. If you intend to travel to Canada, most rental companies, such as Budget, allow you to cross the border. If you already possess a Canadian driving license, the company can issue you a rental car with Canadian license plates. You can enter Canada with a car with U.S. license plates valid for 30 days if this is unavailable. Taking the rental car to Canada will also require that you possess a Canadian non-resident insurance card as proof that you have auto insurance that works in Canada.
