Is it worth renting a car in New York State?

Renowned for its varied and picturesque landscape, New York State is a major tourist draw. Outside of New York City, public transport is much less convenient. To visit the more remote parts of the state, especially the mountainous northern corner where public transport is limited, car rental is essential. hire a car in New York State and you’ll have the freedom to explore the natural wonders to be found in every corner of this large state. Niagara Falls on the west of the state needs no introduction and can be easily reached by a major highway. In the southeast you’ll find the Hudson Valley and the Catskills. Both areas are famous for their vineyards and wineries, lush green forests, mountains, and wildlife. Or grab yourself a cheap car rental and discover the northern Adirondack Mountains at your own pace.

New York car hire information

New York State’s weather swings from hot and humid in summer to freezing cold in winter. So, depending on the time of year you visit, road conditions will vary greatly, but car rental is always a great option. Heavy snowfall should be expected in winter making car hire necessary as public transport often comes to a halt, especially in more remote areas and around ski resorts. Major highways are in good condition, however, smaller roads in remote areas are less well-kept and pothole prone. The largest cities in southern and central New York State, including Albany, Syracuse, Buffalo, and NYC, are connected by multi - lane highways. The northern interior is less well linked although major highways traverse the north’s eastern and western borders.

Driving laws are straightforward so there is nothing that makes car rentals in New York State complicated. As with all US states, cars drive on the left and must give way to pedestrians and other drivers. Within New York City, you must never drive above the legal speed limit (speeds may be lower in certain areas), and during business hours, you cannot make a left turn on any of the city’s major roads. At traffic lights, it is illegal to block the pedestrian walkway. Honking your car horn “unnecessarily” is also illegal. And when parking, you must be away from fire hydrants and from pedestrian crossings. All car passengers must wear seat belts. Children under four must sit in a safety seat and children up to six must sit in a booster seat. Outside of the city, the speed limit on highways is rising. It’s advisable to check with the New York State driving department for recent changes in laws before completing your car rental.

Car hire in New York State is simple. Visitors from abroad will need a valid driving licence and a passport or national identity card.  An International Driving Permit is not necessary but could be useful if you’re not from an English-speaking country. US citizens only need a driving licence that has been valid for at least 12 months.
