Important information about Trenton car rentals

Trenton is located on the banks of the Delaware River, which runs along the city’s western edge and acts as the border between New Jersey and Pennsylvania. New York City (to the north) and Philadelphia (to the south) are within 90min of Trenton, and most easily accessible by car. In town, visitors will want to check out the complex at the New Jersey State Capitol, which includes the New Jersey State Museum and the history Old Barracks Museum, dating back to 1785. The main thoroughfares are State Highway 1 and Princeton Drive, both of which run north/south. Trenton and its outskirts are encircled by Interstate 295. Renting a car is the simplest way to get around Trenton, and parking is widely available on the street and in public and private lots. With nearly ten car rental locations in Trenton offering vehicles such as electric cars, luxury cars, passenger vans, and economy cars, you have many options to choose from.

Is it worthwhile to rent a car while visiting Trenton?

Car rentals in Trenton are the best option for getting around town and the surrounding area. Some areas, such as the Capitol complex, are quite walkable so you may choose to park and walk.  Parking is generally easy to find, and traffic is typically light to moderate. Roads are a bit more congested during morning and evening rush hours, but still quite manageable. In addition to traveling within the city, a rental car allows you to easily travel throughout the surrounding area. By car, you can reach New York City in less than two hours, and Philadelphia is less than an hour away. Be sure to check traffic before traveling into or out of one of these larger cities – morning and evening rush hours can add time to the trip. For the budget-minded traveler, a cheap car rental in Trenton provides flexibility and convenience.

What laws should I keep in mind while driving in Trenton?

Driving takes place on the right side of the road in Trenton and throughout the U.S. The first rule of thumb is to be sure to observe all traffic signs. Speed limits, illegal turns, and other specific rules posted on road signs offer the best information available to drivers. In New Jersey, all drivers and passengers who are eight years old and above must wear a seat belt. This applies to passengers in the front and back seats. Drinking and driving is illegal and can lead to arrests, fines, and/or suspension of license. A quirk of New Jersey driving is the "jughandle" – a rule that requires drivers to turn right before turning left. Just watch for the road signs to instruct you on where and when turns are allowed, and you will catch on easily. Before driving your rental car in Trenton, be sure to check with the Department of Motor Vehicles for any recent changes to laws.

Will I need a special driver’s license or permit to drive a rental car in Trenton if I’m visiting from another country?

For rental cars in Trenton, U.S. residents and international visitors are required to carry a valid driver’s license issued by their local or state government agency. Drivers must have held a valid license for at least one year prior to the rental period. Rental car companies also require international drivers to provide passports at the time of rental. Car rentals in Trenton do not require an International Driving Permit for foreign drivers, and the same is true throughout New Jersey and in surrounding states.
