Top tips for hiring a car in New Hampshire

  • While there are some relatively large cities in the state of New Hampshire, such as Manchester and Concord, trying to find rental cars throughout the state can be a bit of a challenge. If you want to have a large selection of rental cars, it is better to rent in some of the larger cities. Another good option to make sure you have a good selection of cars is to rent at the airport, including Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT). Another important thing to remember when renting a car in New Hampshire is that if you are renting during the winter, you want to make sure you carry appropriate tire chains for your vehicle to handle potentially snowy and icy roads.
  • The state of New Hampshire has specific laws relating to children traveling in rental cars. Any child that is less than two years old must travel in a rear-facing car seat. When children are between the ages of two and six, they can ride in the front-facing child seat. Once children reach the age of seven, they can ride in a booster seat up until they are 4 foot 9 inches tall. Once children are over seven years old or taller than 4 foot 9 inches, they can ride anywhere in the vehicle, although the state recommends that children ride in the rear of the vehicle until they are at least twelve years old.
  • Because New Hampshire is located so close to the Canadian border, many renters wonder if they can take their vehicles into Canada. Most rental car companies will allow you to take your vehicle into Canada but it is important to advise them ahead of time so that they can provide you with a non-resident insurance card for driving in Canada. Some rental car companies will even let you book one-week rentals to cities in Canada.
  • Book your car hire in New Hampshire at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in New Hampshire are around 28% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in New Hampshire

  • Should I hire a car in New Hampshire?

    The state of New Hampshire offers a fairly robust transportation system that can get you around some of the major cities in the state and can also transport you between these cities. If your trip to New Hampshire is going to involve staying in one of the larger cities, you could probably be all right not renting a car and instead rely on public transportation or taxis and rideshare vehicles to get around. Since most people who visit New Hampshire want to explore all of the amazing outdoor destinations and historic sites in the state, having a rental vehicle is a great choice when you visit here. Before you rent, think about the type of trips you'll be making as well as the number of people and things you will take along on your journey.

  • What is driving like in New Hampshire?

    Driving in New Hampshire is not much different than any other state in the United States in so much as people travel on roads on the right side, all distances are in miles and all speeds are in miles per hour. Even with that, there are some unique things to know about driving in New Hampshire. New Hampshire is the only state where seatbelts are not required by law, but of course, it is still recommended that all passengers in the vehicle wear one. You can use your cell phone while you drive a car in New Hampshire but you must do so in a hands-free manner.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in New Hampshire?

    When you rent a car in New Hampshire, most rental car companies will expect you to be at least twenty one years old. Some exceptions to this rule include if you want to rent a luxury vehicle or a premium SUV or if you want to rent using a debit card. In these specific cases, rental car companies will probably expect you to be at least twenty five years old to rent a car.
