There’s loads of choice when it comes to rental cars in Kingston. From SUVs with space to spare to agile compacts, you’ll find it all here. Deciding on your perfect match of course depends on your budget and what activities you plan on doing. There are some road trips that are just begging you to splurge on your dream ride, whereas other adventures don’t need much more than a bargain, no-frills type model. Which will it be this time?
From its high-speed highways to its suburban streets, discovering Kingston is a cinch with your own ride. But before you make a break for the fast lane, here’s what you need to know about hitting the road in this city:
In Kingston, you’ll have to keep on the right-hand side. When exploring someplace new, it’s wise to opt for a car with automatic transmission. That way, you can concentrate on the road ahead and save worrying about gear changes.
Finding a parking spot in Kingston is a piece of cake. You don’t need to repeatedly go around the block in dense traffic here — and that’s what the locals love about it. There’s plentiful on and off-street parking to take your pick of.
As with most places, roads get busier in the hours before and after work. However, due to its smaller population of about 114,200, traffic jams aren’t a huge issue in Kingston.
While motoring around the streets of Kingston, keep in mind that the speed limits generally range from 50km/h to 100km/h. Most residential zones are 50km/h unless otherwise signed.
Generally, your chosen rental car company will charge the amount of the fine to your credit card. Alternatively, the company may provide your contact details to local law enforcement agencies so they can send a fine directly to you.
Like many places, standard cell phone usage is not allowed while driving a car in Kingston. There is an exception for hands-free or Bluetooth functions. Just be sure to keep your eyes on the road.
In Kingston, it’s a punishable offence to operate a vehicle with a BAC (blood alcohol content) of more than 0.05%. If you’re planning to have a couple of glasses of wine with dinner, it’d be wise to leave your rental car behind.
Road rules in Kingston permit drivers at a red light to turn into the direction of traffic nearest to them without waiting for a green signal. Before making the maneuver, the vehicle must completely stop and the driver must be sure that the lane is clear before proceeding.
In short, yes. Although, there are some exceptions for certain vehicles used by public transportation networks.
