Pennsylvania is a rich state with a long list of attractions, and you will need a car rental if you want to fully explore its picturesque countryside, bustling urban centers, and the beautiful beaches of Lake Erie. A car rental gives you a comfortable and convenient means of getting through the region and at your own pace. Unlike the public transportation in place, you can stop whenever and wherever you please with a car rental. Moreover, if the family will be tagging along, a passenger van rental or minivan should be a great way of keeping everyone together, happy, and comfortable.
You must not exceed the following speed limits when driving in the region: 25 mph for residential districts, 35 mph for urban districts, 65 mph on freeways, and 55 mph on rural highways. Pennsylvania also has a Steer Clear law that stipulates: if you encounter an emergency vehicle with flashing lights, you need to move to a different lane not adjacent to the one where the emergency personal are operating. On some rural roads, you might encounter horses and buggies on the road. Be patient and only pass the wagon when the road is clear. Avoid honking as that may spook the animal and cause an accident.
In most rental locations, you need to be at least twenty one years old to rent a car. Additionally, you need to present a valid driver’s license and credit or debit card in your name at the time of renting. Similarly, many locations have a young driver’s surcharge, usually charged for drivers between twenty one and twenty four. Moreover, these drivers will not have access to some vehicle classes, such as exotic and luxury cars, minivans and large passenger vans, full-size and premium SUVs, and any signature or specialty vehicles.
