Maryland car hire information

What are the driving conditions like in Maryland?

Maryland's highways are completely safe to drive on and in good shape. In severe winter conditions with snow and ice, the roads are definitely more dangerous. It's advised to stay off the roads, if possible, in those conditions or to clear ice and snow off your car rental before driving and to give yourself extra time to travel slowly. Recommendations for your car hire in such extreme winter conditions are the Toyota RAV4, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Escape, and the Subaru Outback. In normal weather conditions, you can take your pick of the many available options of vehicles. There are around 14 Interstate highways in Maryland connecting different towns and cities, including the I-895 Baltimore Harbor Tunnel Thruway bypassing downtown Baltimore.

What laws should I be aware of when driving in the United States?

Certain rules in America vary between states such as different speed limits. Generally, by following the main regulations that apply across the nation, you should be fine. While it may seem that the United States is a relaxed nation, traffic laws are strictly adhered to. When driving your car rental keep to the right-hand side of the road. Never cross a solid or double yellow line. Always yield to pedestrians. Stop completely when pedestrians are crossing the street. Don't pass a school bus if the red lights are flashing. Wait until the lights have stopped. Be careful regarding city bike lanes. Pull over or stop at intersections so that emergency vehicles can pass you. Before travelling to Maryland check their traffic regulations online in preparation.

What documents do I need to hire a car in the United States?

Always have your passport, your driving license from your home country, and an International Driving License with you. An International Driver’s License is an internationally recognized document that is a translation of your national driver’s license. That's why you need both documents with you. Citizens of the United States only need a valid driver's license. To hire a car in Maryland make sure that your credit card has funds to cover payments. Car rental age limits are restricted to 21 years of age.

Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in Maryland?

Although Maryland has a great public transport system, there's nothing like road tripping off the beaten track along Maryland's many scenic byways. Get a cheap car hire so that you have your own vehicle to experience drives like the Historic National Road from Baltimore to Hagerstown, one of the nation's oldest routes. Or you can explore the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal along the scenic Potomac River, connecting Cumberland to Washington, D.C. Popular places to visit are the family vacation town of Ocean City, the sailing capital, Annapolis, and the thriving city of Baltimore. You can get to these destinations by bus or by train, but it takes a lot longer, so if you have limited time, a cheap car rental makes more sense.
