Vermont Guide


Regarded as the Green Mountain state, Vermont is one of the United States’ most beautiful areas and is a joy to explore with car rental in Vermont. Situated in the northeastern pocket of New England, the state doesn’t contain a coastline. Nevertheless, the highland backbone of Vermont certainly adds that much needed spectacle. The enchanting but small capital, Montpelier, is an important historical town, but Burlington is the largest city and main gateway.

Hiring a Vehicle

Major cities like Burlington, Montpelier and St Albans offer cars for rent. Some of the world’s most well-known suppliers operate within Vermont, including the reliable companies of Avis, Enterprise, and Thrifty. Tourists should compare car hire prior to arrival in the state.

Transport Options

Burlington International Airport, less than two miles from Burlington, is the main airport serving Vermont. Flights to cities like New York, Chicago, Washington, and Orlando occur daily. Greyhound bus lines stop at numerous Vermont cities, including Montpelier, Burlington and Brattleboro. Amtrak railways, Vermont Railway and the Green Mountain Railroad provide transport for visitors. Nearly 3,000 miles of highways span the state, include the I-89 and I-91.

Car Hire Driving Tips in Vermont

Many of the main highways transform into main streets throughout Vermont, so motorists need to drive carefully through towns and observe speed limit changes. Mountain ranges require special care from drivers, and winter roads can be hazardous at times. Nevertheless, roads are in great condition throughout the state, making car hire in Vermont a popular means of travel.

Not to be Missed!

During autumn, visitors can take a drive almost anywhere in Vermont to see the stunning foliage on display. There are dozens of wonderful ski resorts and winter-sport locations in Vermont, including Suicide Six, Jay Peak and Blueberry Hill. Visitors can enjoy the warmer months too, exploring plenty of locations for outdoor summer activities like hiking, biking, and mountain climbing. Bromley Mountain near the town of Bromley and Stratton Mountain, near Manchester, should be visited.

Weather & Tourist Seasons

Visiting between late September and October is absolutely recommended. With temperatures dropping to a cool 12°C on average, these autumn months turn Vermont into a fiery blanket of red and orange foliage. Scenic driving opportunities span the state. Winter sports lovers should also visit Vermont between December and February, as temperatures drop to an average of -5°C.

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).

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.
