Is renting a car while visiting Tucson recommended?

Tucson is a large city, and it does have public transportation options, but it is convenient to get around by rental car. Tucson car rentals are easy to find, and so is parking. There are areas where you could walk to get a more personal experience of the city, but it is too large to explore entirely on foot.

Can I drive across the Mexican border with a rental car from Tucson?

If you’re planning on using hired cars in Tucson, Arizona, and would like to drive to Mexico, you need to make some arrangements before walking into a rental place or booking online. Most car hire locations in Tucson do not allow you to drive across the border into Mexico. Therefore, check the different locations to see which will allow it. At these locations, you’ll need to plan on paying for extra insurance so that you’re covered on your road trip across the border. It also depends on what kind of car you plan to travel in. If you’re looking at a people carrier rental or a luxury car rental in Tucson to drive to Mexico, chances are most companies will not allow these types of classes to make the journey. Economy car rental is the most likely option with short-term Mexican car insurance.

Can you hire a car in Tucson without a credit card?

Tucson car rentals, like most other city car rentals, give the highest preference to booking a vehicle with a credit card. That doesn’t mean you’re out of luck if you don’t have a credit card, it just means that you may have to take some extra steps before booking a car before getting to the rental location, even for cheap rental cars in Tucson. For example, if you want to use your debit card to rent a car, you will have to prove plenty of funds in your account to cover the cost of the rental, or you may need additional documents such as extra forms of identification, a bill with your name and address, or even a credit check. For cash, which most hired cars in Tucson do not accept, but for those that do, you may need to fill out an application online for a cash deposit identification card. You’ll need to check which companies offer this as an option before arriving at the car rental place, as this application can take some time.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Tucson?

In Arizona, if you drive distracted, you could be in trouble. Not only does Arizona have a mobile phone ban while driving, which means no handheld devices while operating a car or van, but other activities could end up with a hefty fine. For instance, you could receive a citation for eating, applying makeup, or any other distracting activity, especially if you’re speeding. You will also want to be familiar with how to drive through roundabouts, which aren’t so common in the U.S. but have grown in popularity in Arizona. Also, if you hear the sirens of an emergency vehicle, you must pull safely out of the lane enough for them to pass. Lastly, although hired cars in Tucson should know this, make sure the frame around the license plate is not covering any information on the plate itself, as that will get you a citation in Arizona.

Will I need a special driving license or permit to drive rental cars in Tucson if I’m visiting from another country?

Anyone travelling to the United States from another country may drive Tucson car rentals legally using a valid driving license from their native country for up to one year. This is because of the agreement made in Geneva called the United Nations Convention on Road Traffic. International Driving Permits are recommended, but not required. If your home country is not bound by this agreement, a U.S. driving license will need to be obtained before you will be allowed to drive hired cars in Tucson.
