Nova Scotia car rental information

Nova Scotia is one of the most popular places to visit while touring the east coast of Canada. You can be even more adventurous when you travel around Nova Scotia in a rental car. Usually, roads in this Canadian province are in good condition and you can enjoy driving without major hurdles. Along with ice, snow, and colder temperatures, the winter season comes with potentially risky driving conditions. Decreased visibility and slippery roads can also be a challenge when driving in Nova Scotia. To stay safe in your car rental, make sure it is in good working order. The car should be equipped with the recommended winter tires to handle slippery roads and snowy conditions. When driving in Nova Scotia, you’ll want to rent an all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicle, such as an SUV or truck, designed specifically to handle winter conditions.

We recommend studying and understanding the laws of Nova Scotia even before you sit behind the wheel of your car rental. Driving in any Canadian city or province is similar to driving in the United States. Only a few differences exist in terms of the driving rules and provincial traffic laws. The speed measurements are usually in kilometers per hour (km/h) instead of miles per hour. Wearing seatbelts is mandatory for passengers of all ages. Cellular phones are only allowed if they are used “hands-free" while you are driving. It’s best to check with Nova Scotia’s department of motor vehicles for recent changes in traffic laws.

Whether you’re going for cheap car rentals or luxury cars, you must have the right documents at the time of your car rental pickup. A valid driver’s license is mandatory for all drivers. You will also need to present proof of your auto insurance to be allowed to drive in Nova Scotia. Travelers from countries other than the US are required to submit an International Driving Permit (IDP) if they are staying in Canada for more than six months. You’ll need to pay for your car rental with a valid credit card.
