Important information about San Juan car rentals

One of the most amazing sites to go with your car rentals in San Jua is the Castillo San Felipe del Morro. This is a preserved castle that not only is a pleasure to walk through, but the views of the sea are amazing. Just a short drive to the east of the city is the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico. This museum hosts many pieces that trace the history of this area. The main route for rental cars in San Juan that takes travelers through the city is Highway 18, which then becomes Highway 52. Highway 26 cuts through the heart of the city traveling east and west. Parking in Downtown San Juan can be difficult and, in the neighborhood of Old San Juan, it might be nearly impossible for San Juan car rentals. With around 10 care rental locations in San Juan, it is quite easy to find a great rental car or passenger van rental deal.

Because San Juan is small with lots of visitors, the roads can often get busy for car rentals in San Juan. The busiest times of day are during morning and evening rush hours. There's also quite a bit of traffic in the Old San Juan area most times of the day. A great place to visit in an economy car rental is the El Yunque National Forest, which is the only tropical rain forest in the United States National Park System. The vegetation and the waterfalls that you'll find on the hiking trails in this forest are worth the drive. While there are pockets of the city that are walkable, the sheer number of locations you will want to visit throughout Puerto Rico that are just a short drive away makes having a vehicle a must. This includes visiting all the amazing beaches, too.

For citizens of both the United States and Canada looking for a cheap car rental in San Juan, you will need a valid driver's license that includes your photograph on the license. The license needs to be issued by your state or province. You cannot use a digital driver's license nor can use a temporary driver's license. For those visitors that are not from the United States or Canada, they can also use a government-issued driver's license that includes their photograph. If the driver's license is not in the English language, rental car companies suggest that they also provide an international driver's permit to help verify their identity. Note that you cannot rent a car with an international driver's permit alone.

San Juan is the largest city in the country of Puerto Rico. When using car rentals in San Juan you are free to drive the car to any part of the country you wish. Since this is an island nation, the chances that you will try to drive your San Juan car rental to another country are remote. There is a ferry between Puerto Rico and the neighboring Dominican Republic, but most car rental locations in San Juan will not allow you to take the car on fairies or into another country. Several rental car companies in San Juan will let you make one-way rentals whereby you return the car to another location in Puerto Rico.

By far one of the most convenient ways to get car rentals in San Juan is to use a credit card, but if that is not possible, one way to rent a car is by using a debit card. When you use a debit card most rental car companies will expect you to be 25 years old at a minimum and they will want the name of the renter to be the same as the one that is on the debit card. When you rent a car using a debit card, the rental car company will put a sizable hold on your debit card during the time you have the car. It is possible that some small rental car companies may let you rent cheap car rentals in San Juan using cash only but when you use this method of rental you should expect to put down a large deposit to secure the car for the rental car company.

Since Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States, drivers will find that the laws regarding driving here are similar to those they find in the United States when driving car rentals in San Juan. One important thing to note is that the words on the street signs are most likely going to be in Spanish. In Puerto Rico, all passengers must be wearing a seatbelt in your electric car rental, and kids that are four years old or younger must be in a booster seat. Any child who is 12 years old or less must ride in the backseat of your luxury car rental in San Juan. Keep in mind when driving in your passenger van rental on a highway that many highways and roads will often have traffic lights. Another quirk of driving your car rental in Puerto Rico is that you will find speed limit signs given speeds in miles per hour, but the distances to various destinations will be in kilometers. You will also find that police cars frequently have their lights on at all times. It does not mean that they are trying to pull you over, but you should always yield to them. Watch out for speed bumps, which are common in San Juan, especially in older neighborhoods.
