Top tips for renting a car in Providence

  • Discover the cool city of Providence with Brown University and many more places of interest. Get the most out of your visit by renting a car upon your arrival and explore every nook and cranny this city has to offer. For a pleasant day trip, try venturing down to the coast, which will take about 2 hours of driving, and then take a ferry to the popular island of Martha’s Vineyard. Boston is also only 1 hour away via the I-93 S and I-94 S, and Cape Cod can be reached in just over an hour.
  • Green Airport is about 10 miles from Providence’s center and has a car rental center right there. Simply follow signs to the rental car service desks and pick up the car of your taste. Various agencies are stationed here including Alamo, Avis, and Hertz, and the way out of the airport is sign-posted. The I-95 N will take travelers directly into the city in just over 10 minutes.
  • Rhode Island has introduced a “hands-free” driving law and speaking on the phone while driving is strictly prohibited and can be severely fined. When needing to operate a GPS, rent one along with the car and make sure it has a mount. Always plan routes in advance or let other car passengers deal with the navigation system while you are driving.
  • Driving in snowy conditions is part of the Southern New England experience during the winter months. Usually, when properly equipped and prepared, driving in winter should be no problem -- but make sure the rental car has snow tires and consider renting snow chains if you plan to venture out of the urban areas. Having an emergency kit with a blanket, flashlight, water, and snacks in the car also does not hurt.

  • Providence is mostly easy to navigate but, especially when coming in the winter time, a 4-wheel drive car is recommended.

Khout or Geko are often cheaper with rates going as low as $2.40 per gallon. Always plan ahead of your next refill so you are not stuck with opting for an expensive gas station, and get informed which kind of gas is required for the rental car in advance.

  • On-street parking in Providence is metered and varies in time restrictions. Mostly, there is a time limit of 2 hours, but check at the allocated sign to be sure. Alternatively, opt for a parking garage like Providence Place or Metropark Park Row East, where cars can be parked over a longer period of time.
