Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in Maine?

Much like most states in the USA, Maine has a public transportation network in its larger cities and towns, which form public transport corridors between them. These are bus and train services, but are known to be a bit sporadic. So car rental in Maine is by far your best option if you want to explore the region. You can stick to the Interstate roads, or branch off onto the secondary roads where public transport won’t take you. Similarly, if you’re on a business trip, you’ll appreciate the freedom of not being tied to public transport schedules in the main cities like Portland (not to be confused with Portland in Oregon), Lewiston and Bangor. Cheap car hire in Maine will allow you to self-drive to appointments, which is so much easier than taking a bus and then walking or taking a taxi to your exact destination.


Maine car hire information

Possibly the biggest adjustment you’ll need to make if you’ve booked car rental in Maine is that you’ll be driving on the opposite side of the road to what you’re used to in the UK, and any car hire model you choose will be a left-hand drive vehicle. Also watch for seasonal changes in the road surfaces. Maine gets a lot of snow, which can make the surfaces quite treacherous, so watch out for black ice warnings. When the snow thaws, road works commence to fix and problems caused by the winter conditions, and delays as a result are simply a fact of life if you hire a car in Maine. Driving between the major cities and towns is easy enough, as Maine is part of the US Interstate National Highway System. The primary interstate highway in Maine is the I-95.

One of the big things to be aware of when it comes to car rentals in Maine is that there is zero tolerance for texting and driving, with some heavy fines accrued. The legal alcohol limit for driving is 0.08%, and you need to take this seriously as law enforcement is very vigilant when it comes to driving under the influence. It’s also advisable to check with the department of motor vehicles in Maine for recent changes to the law before you depart. It also wouldn’t be an understatement to say that local enforcement is zealous and enthusiastic, so make sure you obey all speed limit and other traffic signs. Seatbelts are mandatory for all car occupants. You’ll also encounter moose warning signs – don’t take these lightly, as the animals are involved in thousands of accidents a year and can do a lot of damage to cars and even passenger, due to their size.

When you book car rental in Maine you’ll need to be in possession of a full valid driver’s licence and present your passport or your UK ID document. You must also bring a passport-sized photo that you have signed on the back. As long as you’re over 18 you can hire a car, though drivers who are 21 and 25 or older qualify for more advanced and powerful, yet still cheap car rental in Maine.
