Important information about Salem car rentals

Can I drive to Canada with a rental car from Salem?

There are plenty of popular car rental locations in Salem, Oregon that allow you to cross the border into Canada after deciding on the car of your choice. Whether you decide on an electric car rental or an economy car rental, you can go back and forth from the Canadian border as you please, but there are some extra requirements. Car rentals in Salem will tell you that to cross the border in your rental car, you will need to purchase additional insurance that will cover you and the car while you’re in Canada. Most of the time, you can get this non-resident Canadian insurance card at the rental agency, but you can also research insurance on your own if you’d prefer. Do note that before deciding on a luxury car rental in Salem, you should tell the rental agent ahead of time that you intend to take the car across the border so they can prepare it in your rental agreement.

Can you rent a rental car in Salem without a credit card?

Some car rentals in Salem will allow other means of payment besides credit cards, but some will not so do some research into each Salem car rental company’s policies. Some car rentals in Salem will take debit cards, as long as the card has a major credit company, like Visa or Mastercard. The companies that do take debit cards may put a hold on a certain amount for the duration of your rental for around the amount of the full rental fee. Some rentals may also take cash, but you may have to pay a deposit. Most have policies only allowing payment in the form of credit cards, pre-paid, or charge cards. These policies are for security reasons and can vary from company to company or even location to location. Also, paying with a debit card or cash when possible, keep in mind that there may be particular models of cars that you will not be allowed to rent.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Salem?

If you decide on car rentals in Salem, before getting behind the wheel, you should know about driving laws in the state. For example, it is illegal to use your phone while driving. So, before you pull out of the Salem car rental lot, make sure you enter your destination on your GPS device. Especially if this is your first time driving in Salem, this will help you map your route and stop you from getting lost, as well as abiding by the law, or course. Even cheap car rentals in Salem should give you tips on driving in different weather conditions. For example, if you decide on a passenger van rental during winter, check with the rental company to make sure there are snow tires on the vehicle. If you’re not used to driving in these conditions, you may want to do further research before getting behind the wheel.

What documents does an international traveler need to rent a car in Salem?

If you’re visiting from another country, it’s important to know what type of documentation you need to drive a rental car in Salem. The state of Oregon allows foreigners to drive with a valid foreign driver's license. It is not required but recommended that you also get an International Driver Permit. This could be helpful if you do indeed get pulled over. Local law enforcement might be more familiar with the International Driving Permit than the foreign license, especially if the license is not in English. To be on the safe side, it’s good practice to have paper copies of any documentation in case you are ever in a situation where that is needed.
