Important information about St. Louis car rentals

When visiting St. Louis, one of the best ways of getting around to all your favorite spots is by car. With a rental car in St. Louis, you’ll be able to drive around to visit the iconic Gateway Arch National Park and see Forest Park and the various museums nearby. Car rental locations in St. Louis are spread all over the city and at the airport, making the process of renting a car smooth and straightforward. Over 20 rental offices are offering both standard economy car rentals as well as luxury car rentals in St. Louis. With a rental car from the main international airport, you can be downtown in less than half an hour. There are on-street parking meters downtown but it’s free to park on Sundays and at non-operational hours. There are also lots and parking garages which vary in rates.

The downtown area is walkable but the city is pretty large, so using public transportation or deciding on getting a cheap car rental in St. Louis is your best bet. Getting around is easy and there are various day trips you can take near St. Louis if you have a car. Follow the Mississippi River up north to the town of Hannibal, less than a two-hour drive away. The town is known for being the home of Mark Twain and an inspiration for classic characters like Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. As the iconic image of St. Louis, you’ll want to visit the Gateway Arch, but we recommend not going during rush hours. The I-44 passes right by it and is known to get congested.

When you book car rentals in St. Louis, you can drive across the border into Canada. Do note that if you want to drive a particular class, like a passenger van rental or luxury car rental in St. Louis, you need to check with the rental company to make sure they allow cross-border travel. Traveling to Canada from the U.S. with St. Louis car rentals may require a Canadian non-resident insurance card so that you are covered during the Canadian portion of your road trip. Many locations of the rental company you choose will not allow you to drive to Mexico. The companies that do will require you to purchase Mexican Automobile Liability Insurance. This additional coverage will make sure you are insured during your time in Mexico.

Most car rentals in St. Louis do require you to rent a car with a credit card, rather than with cash or debit card. If you don’t have a credit card, most car rentals in St. Louis will allow you to rent a car with a debit card, but there are some additional requirements. You must have the amount available in the account as well as an additional security deposit. If you want to book an electric car rental or economy car rental without a credit card or debit card, there are additional steps you must take. For cash payment, some rental car companies will require you to apply for a cash deposit identification card online. Other companies do not offer this so inquire before booking. Additionally, you may have to pay an up-front cash deposit and there could be a processing fee for the identification card, so make sure you are aware of the additional costs before reserving a St. Louis car rental.

No matter whether you rent a luxury car or an economy car in St. Louis, the driving laws are the same. For example, in Missouri, it is not legal to text or use hand-held devices while you’re driving. Further legal action can be taken if there is an accident due to a driver using one of these devices. Also in Missouri, you are allowed to turn right at a stoplight, unless the intersection has prohibited signs. Missouri takes a different approach to the speed of car travel. There are two categories, basic speeding law and absolute speed limits. Basic speeding law means that you’re driving at a safe speed for yourself and other drivers around you. Importantly, this speed can vary depending on what type of road you’re driving on and the conditions. Absolute speed limits are the maximum you’re allowed to travel on different types of roads, for instance, on Interstate Highways. Also, in Missouri, it generally snows in the winter. Therefore, if you’re going to book car rentals in St. Louis you should remember to clear the vehicle of any snow from the hood of the car, the windshield as well as the headlights and brake lights.

If you’re from another country, you can still drive St. Louis car rentals. In Missouri, to drive legally as a foreigner, you must have a valid driver’s license from your home country. In addition, you must also have a valid international driver’s permit. With both licenses valid, you may drive up to one year in Missouri and both must be valid for the duration of your car rental. An international driver’s permit is normally obtained through your home country, so check on requirements before leaving for the U.S. It is also wise to have a copy of your passport available in case the car rental company wants to keep it on file.
