New Jersey car hire information

With dramatic changes in weather each year and so many roads to maintain, you may come across plenty of potholes or simply roads in need of maintenance across New Jersey, due to the storms, freezing and thawing of the roads every season cycle. You may also come across maintenance in progress and general congestion in busier areas of the region, so be wary to allow time for potential delays when planning your travels with your car rental across New Jersey, particularly in winter, when storms and snow can slow everything down. Drivers in New Jersey tend to have a local haste, so be prepared that their speed and method of overtaking can be more aggressive than other cities.

Notable differences from the UK to the United States begin with driving on the opposite side of the road, which takes a moment to adjust to and, of course, changes the process to many types of intersections; there are also simply different types of intersections across the country to that of the UK. New Jersey in particular has a few unique navigations of intersections, including the Jughandles, where one takes a slip lane to the right to make a left turn. There are also a few laws that are worth researching and checking for any updates on through local city departments, such as required usage times for headlights, honking when passing cyclists and skateboarders and using passing lanes.

The majority of car hire providers in the United States will have a minimum age requirement of 21, and an additional young driver fee for those under the age of 25 will most likely be applied. These requirements can differ between companies and cheap car hire agencies, so check with your choice. You will need to provide a full and valid driver’s licence in your name, and you usually have to have held it for at least one full year. You will need to provide a second form of photo identification, which will usually be your passport, and be aware that if you are nominating a second driver, they will also need to provide these documents.
