Indiana Guide


The US midwestern state of Indiana’s name means ‘Land of the Indians’ and, for those interested in the history and culture of Native Americans there’s plenty to see here. Located in the beautiful Great Lakes region, its excellent highway system radiates out from the state capital, Indianapolis, making the region easy to tour in comfort by car.

Hiring a Vehicle

Vehicle rental companies in Indiana include most of the trusted names in the sector such as Alamo, Dollar, Hertz, Budget, National, Thrifty, Budget and Avis. Pick-up points include Indianapolis’s airport, the three smaller airports and most of the subsidiary cities in the region. For the best deals on your selected model, compare car hire in advance of your trip.

Transport Options

Indianapolis International Airport is the major air hub, set just 11kms from the downtown district and offering flights to most US cities as well as to Toronto, Canada. Smaller airports at Fort Wayne, South Bend and Evansville serve nearby hub cities such as Chicago. Known as America’s crossroads, Indiana is well-covered by fast highways, including Interstates 80, 90, 65, 70, 74 and 69. However, the most useful route for touring with car hire in Indiana is Interstate 94, hugging the shores of Lake Michigan.

Car Hire Driving Tips in Indiana

The most important thing to remember is that America drives on the right, with the speed limit of 65 mph also worth consideration if you want to avoid a fine. Seat belts are compulsory, and drink-driving laws are harsh and stringently enforced. Your UK driving license is valid for a year, but an international driving license is the best idea, and most roads are kept in good condition.

Not to be Missed!

Once you’ve explored Indianapolis’s museums, monuments and shopportunities, car rental in Indiana comes into its own across the vast swathes of farmland with its outdoor activities and recreation centres such as Indiana Dunes State Park and National Lakeshore. The Native American Angle Mounds State Historic Site lies close to Evansville in the southern region of the state.

Weather & Tourist Seasons

Hot summers and cool winters characterise Indiana’s climate, with the far south of the region more humid than the northern areas. Spring and early autumn are the best times to visit if you’re not comfortable with summer highs of between 29 and 32˚C, and winter temperatures rarely drop below freezing. Indiana is prone to tornados, although it’s not set in America’s infamous ‘tornado alley’.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?
