Get prepared for an epic adventure in Minto. Which car you choose depends on the type of vacation you're planning. If you're traveling by yourself, why not go for a compact car? They're economical to run and easy to park. If you're on the road with a few friends, think about an intermediate or a standard car. They offer more legroom and space for everyone's bags.
First of all, there's an impressive variety of both economy and luxury rental vehicles in Minto. What you end up going for will depend on what you're willing to spend and what you plan to do. Specialty and prestige vehicles often spare no expense when it comes to mod cons and comfort. If you want to treat yourself, why not pick a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps a stylish medium-sized vehicle? Otherwise, if you just need something to zip around town in as economically as possible, you're better off going with a versatile compact vehicle (or something else that's unlikely to break the bank).
Before you hit the road in Minto, get your head around the local rules and regulations. From speed limits to parking restrictions, here's what you'll want to know:

As with many places, normal cell phone usage is prohibited while driving in Minto. However, there is an exception for hands-free or Bluetooth capabilities. Just be sure to keep your eyes on the road.
When operating a vehicle in Minto, it's illegal to have a BAC (blood alcohol content) of more than 0.05%. Thinking of having a few drinks while you're out? Consider grabbing a taxi or using a ride-sharing service.
Yes, drivers may turn on a red light in Minto. But before doing so, you have to bring the car to a total stop. Move on only when your way is clear.
