Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car rentals in Indiana, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on February 24, 2024.

What are the requirements to rent a car in Indiana?

For car rentals in Indiana, you have to be 21 years old. All drivers need a valid driver’s license and a valid debit or credit card. Younger drivers between 21 and 24 need to pay a Young Driver Surcharge and are restricted to certain kinds of Indiana car rentals. Drivers over the age of 25 can rent a wider variety of car rentals in Indiana. International drivers need to bring their home country’s driver’s license. An International Driver’s License will be needed if your home country's license isn't written with the Roman alphabet.

What are the rules for driving in Indiana?

Rental cars in Indiana require drivers to know and follow the state’s driving regulations. Unless you’re passing another driver, always drive on the right side of the road. Safety belts should be always worn by all passengers, and children should be securely fastened in an appropriate car seat. It’s against the law to drink and drive when your blood alcohol content (BAC ) is above 0.08%. When driving in urban areas, the speed limit is around 30 mph. When you get out to the urban interstate roads, the speed limit increases to 55 mph. Rural interstate roads have a maximum speed limit of 70 mph. It’s recommended to keep up with recent law changes by referring to the DMV before getting car rentals in Indiana.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Indiana?

The kind of rental car we recommend depends on two things. The first is the number of passengers, and the second is the purpose of the rental. If you’re traveling with a big family and need plenty of seating and storage, then an SUV or a passenger van rental might be a perfect fit. If you’re traveling alone for business and want to make a strong first impression around the urban centers, then a luxury car rental in Indiana can help do that. For those who’re more budget-conscious and just looking for something that gets them from A to B, an economy car or a compact car can provide a quality cheap car rental in Indiana. If you’d like to take in the clean air while driving through the farms and outdoor parks of Indiana, then consider a Ford Mustang or Chrysler 200 convertible.
