There's nothing like dropping the windows of your rental car and steering down lengthy stretches of highways. But before you embark on a new adventure in Newfoundland, how about learning a few things about this popular place? You'll need to book a flight to Canada to reach this awesome destination.
Here you'll find our top tips to bag the cheapest possible rental car:
Don't limit your adventures to the cities. Newfoundland is home to some breathtaking scenery, such as icebergs, mountains, and cliffs. A set of wheels like a convertible will help you travel around them in style. These rentals are ideal for visitors who'd like to experience the views with the top rolled down. Who doesn't adore the feeling of the wind blowing through their hair?
Sometimes it's all about the journey, which makes your car choice particularly important. If you're about to embark on an amazing road trip around Newfoundland, a roomy SUV could be the best solution. If you're looking for the cheapest possible price and plan on doing a lot of city driving, a versatile compact is a clever pick. All you need to do is choose what's going to be the best fit, throw your bags in the back seat, and rack up those miles.
There's no better way to explore the delights of Newfoundland than from the comfort of your own rental car. But before you fasten your seat belt and race off, it's worth getting up to speed with some of the road rules and regulations. Here are a few handy hints to help make sure your journey goes smoothly:
You'll be cruising along the right-hand side of the road in Newfoundland. Even though you may be comfortable with the traffic rules, it's always smart to drive more cautiously on roads you're not familiar with.
Speed limits generally range from 30 km/h to 110 km/h in Newfoundland and there are penalties for exceeding the limit. Built-up areas usually have a maximum speed of 50 km/h, unless indicated otherwise.
Generally, your rental car company will bill the amount stated on the fine to your credit card. Alternatively, the company may share your contact information with the relevant local agency so they can issue a fine straight to you.
Although there are a few exceptions, seat belts must be worn when the vehicle is in motion in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Provided you have hands-free or Bluetooth functions enabled, you are able to use your phone while cruising around Newfoundland. But ensure you keep your eyes on the road.
When driving in Newfoundland, it's an offence to have a BAC (blood alcohol content) greater than 0.05%. Thinking of having a drink or two over lunch or dinner? Consider grabbing a taxi or using a ride-sharing service.
Yes you can. However, before you turn you are required to completely stop the car and only move on if there's no traffic approaching.
