Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in Ohio?

The state of Ohio is entirely accessible by car if you decide to book a car rental during your visit. The largest and most popular cities of Ohio are the three C’s: Columbus, Cincinnati and Cleveland. These three cities are connected by a single interstate (I71) making the transit quite straightforward. There are buses and public transportation that make these same routes, however the trip is over twice as long than with car rentals in Ohio and depending on the destination, it requires making multiple transfers. Having cheap rental cars in Ohio will allow you to get to all the top attractions in the state and travel on your own itinerary, from activities on Lake Erie in the north to hiking in the Wayne National Forest in the Appalachian Mountains in the south.


Ohio car rental information

When picking up your car rental in Ohio you should familiarize yourself with the road conditions beforehand. The weather in the region will affect the road conditions. Ohio is known to get plenty of snow during the winter months from December to March. For those visiting during this period, we suggest looking for a cheap car rental with all-wheel drive to ensure your safety on the roads. Throughout the state of Ohio you’ll find multiple large interstates going north and south like the I75 and I77, as well as east to west and vice-versa, like the I70 and I90. Interstate 71 connects the largest cities of Ohio: Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus.

Here are a few laws and tips you should know about before you rent a car in Ohio. First of all, in the United States they drive on the righthand side of the road. In Ohio, pedestrians always have the right of way and you must yield to them. It’s illegal to drive distracted, so keep your phone out of reach, do not text and drive and avoid any other possible distractions. Within school zones, the speed will be limited at certain hours of the day. Wearing seatbelts is mandatory in Ohio for front seat passengers. As for the drinking and driving restrictions, we recommend leaving your Ohio car rental behind if you’re planning on having a drink since a blood alcohol content of 0.08% and over is illegal. Nonetheless, please check with the department of motor vehicles beforehand for more information.

When picking up your rental car in Ohio, you will have to present a valid permanent driver’s license. If your document is not from the United States or Canada, you may have to show your passport along with your driver’s license and an International Driver’s Permit if your country’s document is not in the roman alphabet. You’ll need a credit card to rent a vehicle. Depending on the rental car agency, you may be able to pay with a debit card under certain circumstances and with specific requirements. You may rent a car if you are over 21 years old but be charged a fee for those under 25.
