You’ll not only avoid the hassle of public transportation, but be able to get from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean to the Appalachian Mountains in no time.

How can I get a cheap car rental in Rhode Island?

There are lots of ways to ensure you get the best rate on a rental, including:

  • - Comparing the rates of different vehicles;
  • - Selecting a non-airport pick-up and drop-off location;
  • - Knowing your fuel and mileage needs in advance; 
  • - Booking early;
  • - Keeping your number of drivers to a minimum.

What Rhode Island car rental companies are good?

Of course, you’ll find the big rental companies like Sixt, Avis, Hertz, and Alamo in Rhode Island, but don’t forget that there are also a number of small companies with good deals, too. Check the reviews and pick your supplier.

What kind of car rental should I get in Rhode Island?

There are a bunch of vehicles available, and the one best suited to your vacation needs depends on your plans and your travel style. SUVs and minivans are great for big families with lots of luggage or camping equipment, for example. If you’re on a stricter budget, we have lots of economy vehicles available, too.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Rhode Island?

The legal age requirement is 21 and, if you’re under 25, a young-driver surcharge may also be applied to your final reservation.

Do I need insurance when renting a car in Rhode Island?

Yes, you must be insured for renting a vehicle. Your car or credit card insurer may cover you already. If not, US citizens can get their insurance at the CarRentals.com checkout or from the supplier directly.

Can I book with unlimited mileage when renting a car in Rhode Island?

A lot of rental companies offer unlimited mileage on all their vehicles, so check with them directly when you make your reservation. If you don’t have unlimited miles, be sure to keep a check of your milometer to avoid facing additional fees for miles clocked up.

Can I use a debit card for a Rhode Island hire car?

No, not usually. Credit cards are the preferred payment method of most rental companies. They also don’t accept prepaid cards or cash.

Is it possible to hire a car one-way in Rhode Island?

Yes, usually for an additional fee. Ask your supplier for more details.

As the capital city, Providence is full of attractions such as the dancing flames of the WaterFire sculpture, the historic Rhode Island State House, and the prestigious Brown University.

What is a good road trip in Rhode Island?

It might be small, but the state of Rhode Island offers beautiful scenery, including a series of amazing waterfalls that you can hop between in just a few hours.

  • - From Ponaganset Falls in Scituate,
  • - head north to see the man-made Harrisville Falls in Burrillville,
  • - before heading south to Cumberland to admire the beauty of Robin Hollow Pond Falls.

What activities is Rhode Island especially good for?

There’s no limit to how much fun you can have during your Rhode Island sojourn. Drive along the coastline and marvel at some of Newport’s oldest mansions while walking along the city’s scenic Cliff Walk. Make your way to Bristol to stroll through the Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum and round out your journey with a stop in Providence.

Traffic tips to keep you safe

If you’re visiting Southern New England during the winter, be prepared for winter driving conditions and navigating your vehicle in snow. Keep warm clothes in the car as well as a flashlight and snacks and water. Reduce your speed when driving in icy conditions as your traction will be reduced.

With rental cars in RI, the state is yours from touring college campuses to lounging in Fort Adams State Park. Let your East Coast journey begin today by taking advantage of our deals on cheap car rentals in Rhode Island.
