Top tips for renting a car in Idaho

  • The demand for rental cars in Idaho is growing rapidly. Most travel enthusiasts want to rent a car and tour some of this northwestern state’s popular destinations, including the Sun Valley and Yellowstone National Park. Anyone considering a car rental in Idaho should research and make a comparison of various car rental firms operating in Idaho. To be sure of the type of car you want to rent, make the point of comparing different car rental deals from different car rental companies. Furthermore, pay attention to their policy to detect whether it is flexible or strict. The best rental companies in Idaho have flexible car rental plans.
  • Most people renting cars in Idaho tend to focus more on getting comfortable vehicles for their Idaho trips than on their travel needs. It helps to get your priorities straight when renting a car in Idaho. Your safety, for instance, should come first no matter the brand or model of vehicle you plan to rent to explore Idaho. Therefore, travelers should concentrate on getting a car that is equipped with several safety features. Some vital safety features to check for in a rental vehicle include airbags, security systems, and antilock brakes.
  • The majority of car rental dealers in Idaho are pretty strict with how drivers handle their rental vehicles. Hence, drivers need to understand the existing car penalties before renting vehicles. Every car dealer has different car rental penalties. For example, some Idaho car rental dealers impose fines on drivers who smoke inside their rental cars. Others penalize drivers who return their vehicles late. Furthermore, some dealers will penalize you if you return the vehicle without refilling the gas tank, mainly if you picked up the car from the dealer when the gas tank was full. Thus, understand the existing car rental penalties before selecting a rental car from the dealer. Most importantly, avoid such penalties while operating the rental vehicle.
  • If you’re driving in Idaho with your kids, you should be aware of the state car seat laws. A child aged fourteen can enjoy a ride with you while sitting in the front seat. However, the lap belts must lie across the kid’s upper thighs while the shoulder belts should run across the chest. The knees should bend right at the seat’s edge. Children younger than eight years must be secured in a proper and federally approved forward-facing seat, rear-facing seat, or booster seat depending on their individual ages. Observe these rules and make your drive in Idaho a fulfilling one.
