Important information about Riverside car rentals

A trip to this beautiful Southern California city would not be complete without a stop at one of its most iconic attractions, like the Riverside Metropolitan Museum, Fox Performing Arts Center, and Mount Rubidoux, all of which are easily reached by car. Keep an eye out for Interstate 5 as it connects to major destinations like Burna Park and the Santa Ana Freeway. Remember that some of the interstate highways may have tolls, such as the Imperial Highway at the Yorba Linda Boulevard/Weir Canyon Road exits. It’s challenging finding free parking for car rentals in Riverside as most lots are metered at an hourly rate. Renting a car is smooth and straightforward, and there are upwards of 12 car rental locations in Riverside.

Parking in downtown Riverside has time limits, whether you park at garages, city-managed slots, or at curbside meters. Therefore, check the posted signs for time limit information before leaving your car. Interstate 215 is one of the most congested routes during the peak hours in the early morning and late afternoon, and you might consider avoiding it altogether. For your romantic escape to Riverside, consider booking Riverside car rentals. It’s much easier to visit must-see attractions in the surrounding area behind the wheels, including Balboa Park, Coronado Island, and Pacific Beach, all of which can be reached in under a two-hour drive. The city is largely unwalkable; hence economy car rentals come in handy for transportation. With most of the attractions spread out, such as the Citrus State Historic Park and the Riverside Art Museum, a cheap car rental in Riverside is a convenient means for saving time and money, besides the flexibility to plan your own schedule.

As you book car rentals in Riverside, strive to understand some of the city’s unique traffic laws to navigate throughout this destination safely. For instance, you must give way to pedestrians at intersections as they have the right of way. Drive within the stipulated speed limit and on the right-hand side of the road, unless overtaking. A blood alcohol content level higher than 0.08% will attract a hefty fine, and you may deem it safe to enjoy your excursion while sober. Don't forget to check with Riverside's department of motor vehicles for the most up-to-date traffic information.

For car rentals in Riverside, such as a passenger van rental, you must have an official driver’s license provided that it's devoid of any restrictions, and is valid for the duration of your rental agreement. If you’re coming from outside the jurisdiction of the US or Canada, you do not need an international driving license. Instead, you require a valid permanent license from your country of origin, in addition to an official passport that is valid for the period you’ll be using an electronic rental car. Regardless of your home country, you must be 21 years old to rent a vehicle.
