North Carolina car hire information

What are the driving conditions like in North Carolina?

When it comes to car rental in North Carolina, you’ll find that driving conditions are optimal, with major highways linking big cities like Greensboro, Charlotte and the state capital, Raleigh. All main routes, known as interstate highways, run through the state and connect popular areas, such as the I-74, I-77, I-85 and I-95. Due to the modern infrastructure of the state roads, you won’t have trouble with the physical condition of the roads during the summer months; however, snowy and icy conditions are typical in this region during the winter. So, make sure to check with your car hire company that your vehicle is equipped with all the necessary accessories to deal with these conditions. We recommend hiring an SUV or pick-up truck for those winter drives through the country.

What laws should I be aware of when driving in North Carolina?

It's very important to be aware of the local driving laws when it comes to car rental in North Carolina, as they will likely differ to those in the UK. Firstly, all vehicles are left-hand drive, drive on the right side of the road and adhere to national speed limits, while in the United States, speed limits depend on which state you are driving in. Seatbelts must be worn by the driver and all passengers by law; failure to abide by this law may result in a fine for the driver and for each passenger. Drivers who fail to properly secure any children under the age of eight in a child seat could be liable to a fine and two points on their licence. Be mindful that drink driving laws are very strict, and you cannot drive with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or more, with the minimum penalty being a fine, so it’s best not to take this chance when you hire a car in North Carolina.

What documents do I need to hire a car in North Carolina?

When booking a car hire in North Carolina, you’ll need to provide a valid driving licence, be at least 21 years of age and present a valid form of identification, such as a passport, while major credit cards are also normally required for payment.
