Tips for renting a car in North Dakota

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in North Dakota including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on junio 11, 2024.
  • Before driving a rental car in North Dakota with little ones, it is important to read up on the state’s requirements for car and booster seats. Children who are under the age of one and weighing less than 20 pounds must be restrained in a car seat that is facing the rear of the vehicle. Children ages one to seven and weighing at least 20 pounds must be restrained in a car seat or booster seat. However, children should be in a rear-facing seat until they outgrow the height and weight limit of the seat, which is usually around two years old.
  • You may want to drive your rental car from North Dakota to another state, such as Minnesota or South Dakota. Most rental companies will allow you to do this, but you should notify them ahead of time of your plans. Not all rental car companies allow their vehicles to be taken across international borders. If you plan to drive a rental car from North Dakota to Canada, you must inform the rental company about your intention to cross the border. Some companies may have restrictions or additional fees for international travel.
  • North Dakota experiences cold winters, so it is critical that you make sure that you rent a vehicle with heating, and that you check that the heating works before you leave the rental lot. During the winter months, which typically last from December to February, temperatures in North Dakota can drop significantly, often falling well below freezing. Snowfall is common, and the state can experience severe winter weather conditions, including blizzards and icy roads. If you will be driving during this period, you will also need to verify that your rental has appropriate winter tires.

    Major cities like Fargo or Bismarck have a bit of public transportation, but it still is limited and is not always reliable. The rest of the state is primarily made up of smaller cities that may not have any public transportation at all. Because of this, driving is the best way to move throughout North Dakota.
