Newfoundland and Labrador car hire information

What are the driving conditions like in Newfoundland and Labrador?

Canada has extremely harsh winters, so you need to factor this in when deciding on car rental in Newfoundland and Labrador. The climate can affect the road surface quality, which is usually maintained and upgraded in the warmer months. Winter road guidelines, including road conditions, are provided by the provincial government. You might experience fog, very windy weather, rain and even heavy snow, which may require your vehicle to have snow tyres. Be aware of moose when on the road, as accidents involving them are frequent. Keep in mind that Labrador forms part of the Canadian mainland (on the North American continent), while Newfoundland is an island off the coast. If you decide to move between both sections of the province or other parts of Canada, this will entail ferry travel. The main road crossing through Labrador is the Trans-Labrador Highway, while the main road through Newfoundland is the Trans-Canada Highway. It runs all the way from St John’s (the provincial capital and largest city) to Vancouver on the Pacific coast.

What laws should I be aware of when driving in Canada?

As you finalise your car rental in Newfoundland and Labrador, be aware of the fact that Canada’s driving laws are tough. Drivers must have a licence that is valid in their country of origin. Additionally, an international driving permit or licence is required if your licence is not in English or French or isn't written in the Roman alphabet (such as Chinese, Russian, Arabic, Thai and Vietnamese). All occupants of the car are required to wear seatbelts. Drivers under the age of 22 may not drink any alcohol at all, and smoking is illegal in cars with minors. The use of mobile phones while driving is not allowed. Child seats are required for babies, so be sure to arrange these in advance when organising your cheap car rental in Newfoundland and Labrador. The car rental agency should be able to update you on any new driving laws.

What documents do I need to hire a car in Canada?

You are required to have your driving licence with you at all times. If it doesn't show a photo of you, make sure to bring an additional form of identification. Your vehicle must be insured, and you must hold the papers to prove this. In addition, you must be able to present the car's licence documentation if requested.

Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in Newfoundland and Labrador?

This is beautiful, largely unspoilt countryside, so car rentals in Newfoundland and Labrador allow visitors to take in the magnificence of the world’s second-largest country. When you opt for renting a car in Newfoundland and Labrador, you gain the freedom to hit the open road and imbibe the full beauty of this part of the world. If you decide to make the very long trip across Canada from east to west, cheap car hire will free up some funds for overnight stays, food, petrol and tolls. St John’s is a sizeable city with plenty to see and do, but having a car allows you to take in the extensive coastline of the island of Newfoundland, the most eastern part of the continent of North America (if you exclude Greenland), and then Labrador as well. A hire car can conveniently connect you to the extensive coastline, allowing you to engage in many of the outdoor activities on offer and create memorable life experiences.
