You will need a rental car when visiting Virginia. The region is vast, and if you’re to do some serious exploring, a rental car will be the ideal choice. Moreover, a rental car has many benefits. First, getting a Virginia car rental allows you to explore at your own pace. There’s no need to rush as you can do what you want when you want. A rental also allows you to see more things. You can now drive further away from your hotel and visit more local sights. With a rental, you have the freedom to plan your trip. Say goodbye to the public bus and its strict schedule. Finally, a Virginia rental car gives you comfort and convenience—exactly what you need while away from home.
There are a few things you need to know before driving your car rental in Virginia. First, the maximum speed limit is 70 mph, and that’s on interstates outside city limits. On urban interstates and freeways, you can only go up to 65 mph. Stick to 35 mph on highways within city limits and unpaved highways, and 25 mph when driving in a business district or residential zone. In Virginia, going too slow is an offense too, and you’ll be fined if you impede traffic flow by moving too slowly. Stick to the right side of the road unless you’re passing the vehicle in front. Wildlife crossings are common on some rural roads, so remain vigilant to avoid any accidents. Remember to yield to pedestrians, emergency vehicles with lights flashing, school buses with an extended stop sign, drivers already inside a roundabout, and an oncoming vehicle if you’re turning left.
Being at least twenty one to rent a car in Virginia is the law. Most car rental locations in Virginia will require a valid driver’s license and a credit card in your name. Only drivers twenty five and over can pay using debit cards. Moreover, renters between twenty one and twenty four have a daily young renter’s surcharge, and they cannot access some vehicle classes, such as full-size and premium SUVs, signature or specialty vehicles, luxury and exotic rentals, and passenger and commercial van rentals.
