Important information about Newark car hire

A visit to Newark in New Jersey would be much more enjoyable when you book the rental cars in Newark through momondo. The option of hired cars in Newark gives you the tourist advantage of being able to discover so much more as opposed to depending on public transport. One of the top sights in Newark is the Ironbound neighbourhood, which consists of a large shopping district as well as the Newark Museum, home to over 80 galleries. You cannot pass off on the opportunity to get up close and personal with the largest glass window in the world, a part of the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart. Parking lots and garages are available in Newark, but difficult to find in the central area. There are almost 100 car hire locations in Newark for you to access your car rentals from. You will find that booking through momondo will give you access to cheap Newark car rentals.

When looking for parking for your hired cars in Newark, New Jersey be aware that the tickets are bought on the website or in person at the city municipal council. The city of Newark is considered to be more bikeable than walkable and thus the option of renting a car is more ideal. However, neighbourhoods that are safe to walk through are the New Central business district, North Ironbound, and University Heights. When in possession of a rental car, such as an electric car rental, you can explore destinations that require a longer drive, such as Greater Newark Conservancy, Brookdale Park on Grove St, Bloomfield, or take the family in a people carrier rental to get to Brooklyn.

Yes, hired cars in Newark allow you to take their vehicles across the border. You can access both the Canadian and Mexican borders from Newark. To cross the Canadian border using a Newark rental car, you’ll need to inform the rental company before renting the vehicle. They will then issue you with a Canadian non-resident insurance card which allows you to drive freely through Canada. This car insurance card is free of charge, and you’ll access it at the rental counter. Crossing into Mexico is not as easy, as most rental companies don’t allow travel into Mexico. However, those that allow it usually want you to purchase additional Mexican insurance before renting their cars. Moreover, you can rent a cheap car rental for cross-border travel, but large people carrier rental and luxury car rental in Newark cannot travel across the border.

Rental cars in Newark allow different forms of payment at the end of the rental period. However, only credit cards and debit cards can be used when paying for cheap hired cars in Newark. Of the two options, credit cards are the most preferred mode of payment for Newark car rentals. All major credit cards are accepted in over 10 rental car locations in Newark. You can pay for your deposit with VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover Network cards. Debit cards can also be used to pay for the deposit. However, rental companies will run a complete check of your credit history and might even require you to present a return flight ticket while paying for the deposit. Debit cards with the VISA and MasterCard logos will be accepted at most rental car locations. It is important to note that both credit and debit cards should bear the renter’s name. Cash and other payment options are not accepted while paying for the deposit but can be used to clear up any balances at the end of the rental period.

If you’re a new driver in Newark, you might want to acquaint yourself with the driving laws before renting a car. You should always stick to the right side of the road and the slow lane if you’re driving slowly. The left lanes are meant for passing and not driving. The law requires the driver and all passengers in the car to wear a seatbelt at all times. Young children should be safely secured in a child seat or booster seat while in the car. In Newark, drivers are required to have their headlights on 30 minutes after sunset and before sunrise. You will also need to use your headlights when it’s raining heavily, and when there’s low visibility. Remember to honk before passing a cyclist or a skateboarder, and if you’re thinking about drinking and driving, think again because having a blood alcohol content higher than 0.08% will attract heavy fines. The speed limit varies in Newark depending on the locations in question. In school, business, and residential areas, the speed limit is lower than that set for all interstates. Laws and regulations are subject to change, check New Jersey’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for announcements or clarifications on these matters.

Renting a car is easy for international travelers visiting Newark. The first requirement is that they need to be at least 21 years of age with a valid driving license. For the driving license to be considered valid, it should bear the renter’s name and photograph and be unexpired. If the driving license is in another language with the Latin alphabet, an international driver’s permit is recommended but not necessary. However, if the language doesn’t use the Latin alphabet, the international driver’s permit should be submitted along with the valid driving license. Learner’s permits, temporary permits, and all sorts of photocopies can’t be submitted in place of a valid driving license. You might also need to provide proof of insurance to be able to access hired cars in Newark.
