Tips for renting a car in Newfoundland and Labrador

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Newfoundland and Labrador including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 22 April 2024.
  • Infants aged under one year or weighing less than 10 kg (22 lbs) must be properly restrained in a rear-facing car seat. For children who have surpassed the rear-facing seat requirements, a forward-facing car seat with a five-point harness is the next step, generally suitable for those weighing between 9 kg (20 lbs) and 18 kg (40 lbs), depending on the specific seat's guidelines. When a child has outgrown the forward-facing seat, it is time to transition to a booster seat. In Newfoundland and Labrador, this transition typically occurs when the child reaches a height of at least 145 cm (4 ft 9 in).
  • Transporting a rental car from Newfoundland and Labrador to the United States comes with added complexity, mainly due to the significant distance and logistical considerations involved. It's advisable to take a series of essential steps for a smooth cross-border journey. First and foremost, check with the rental car company you plan to rent from, as not all agencies permit their vehicles to cross international borders, and their policies may vary. Additionally, it's crucial to verify your insurance coverage for the rental car while in the United States, as standard rental car insurance may not provide adequate coverage in U.S. territories. Consider acquiring additional insurance from the rental car provider or a third-party insurer if necessary.
  • Credit cards are the most common and widely accepted form of payment for rental cars. Most rental car companies require a major credit card in the renter's name. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are commonly accepted. Some rental car companies may accept debit cards as a form of payment. However, they may place a hold on your account for a specified amount to cover the rental and potential additional charges. While less common, some rental car companies may accept cash payments. However, they may require a cash deposit and may have additional requirements and restrictions.

Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car rentals in Newfoundland and Labrador, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 22 April 2024.
  • Should I rent a car in Newfoundland and Labrador?

    If you plan to explore regions outside major cities like St. John's and Corner Brook, renting a car can provide the flexibility to access remote or less serviced areas. Newfoundland and Labrador offer stunning scenic drives, and having a car allows you to enjoy these picturesque landscapes at your own pace. Some popular routes include the Viking Trail and the Irish Loop. If you want to visit national parks, historic sites, or natural attractions, a car can make it easier to access these destinations. Having a rental car provides convenience and control over your schedule. You won't be reliant on public transportation schedules or the availability of taxis.

  • What is driving like in Newfoundland and Labrador?

    Road conditions can vary significantly, with winter bringing snow and ice, and spring and early summer posing flood and washout risks in some areas. The road network ranges from well-maintained highways to more rugged and remote routes. Be aware of wildlife, particularly moose, on the roads in rural areas. Winter driving demands special attention, requiring winter tires and emergency supplies for potential stranding. With the province's vast size, plan travel times and be aware of speed limits. Gas stations are available in most towns, but it's wise to fill up when possible and ensure your vehicle is equipped for the sometimes limited cell phone reception in remote areas.
