Top tips for renting a car in Utah

  • Utah is a state with widely contrasting topography and very different driving conditions, depending on where your destination is. It’s therefore important to carefully consider which type of vehicle is best for your needs. If you’ll be driving in a major city, such as Salt Lake, then perhaps a comfortable sedan would be best. Then again, if you’re planning on crossing the high desert on one of Utah’s interstate highways, maybe a sleek convertible would be more enjoyable. Lastly, remember that some parts of the state can be rather rugged. If you’re planning any off-road adventures, you might want to consider a sturdy 4-wheel drive.
  • The maximum speed limit in Utah is 80 mph, but it’s still important to watch for posted speed limits as this can change depending on road type or during certain road conditions (like work zones). As in most other states, texting is forbidden while driving. You can talk on your cell phone, so long as it’s in hands-free mode. Children must be secured in rear-facing car seats until the age of about three. After that, they may ride in forward-facing car seats. Children may use standard seat belts without a car seat only once they reach 4 foot 9 inches in height.
  • While the roads and highway systems in Utah are very well-planned and equally well-maintained, there may be times when you find yourself driving on rural or even quite desolate stretches of highway. These areas are beautiful year-round but may not have many opportunities to stop for gas. For this reason, it is highly recommended to keep an eye on your gas tank and to make the most of every opportunity to fill the tank. It certainly wouldn’t add much to your Utah adventure to run out of gas out among the painted desert monuments.

FAQs about renting a car in Utah

  • Should I rent a car in Utah?

    Renting a car in Utah is always a great idea. Whether you plan on cruising downtown Salt Lake City in your sharp sedan or maybe planning a road trip out to the national parks around Moab in your sturdy 4-wheel drive, there’s nothing like the comfort and convenience of renting your own vehicle. Utah offers major metropolitan areas best navigated by car in addition to some of the most beautiful natural wonders in the world. Unfortunately, airports and other public transportation are not always available in many of these attractions. That’s why having the freedom of your own rental car is ideal when visiting.

  • What is driving like in Utah?

    Driving in Utah is as enjoyable and convenient as in any other state. From major interstate highways to residential streets and even back-country gravel roads, Utah has it all. The well-planned and well-maintained roads of Utah are easily navigated year-round. While winter can bring large snowfall to places like Park City or around the Cottonwood Canyons, Utah does a good job of keeping the roads clear. Adams Avenue Parkway is the only toll road in the state, connecting I-84 with US-89 near Washington Terrace. Residential speed limits are a little high at 35 mph.

Please note that drivers, regardless of age, may be required to provide certain documents at the time of their rental, such as valid ID.
