Traveling around Boston with a rental car

Boston is a cosmopolitan city with character, and offers direct access to the breathtaking natural beauty of New England. The capital of the state of Massachusetts has about 620.000 inhabitants, is located on the east coast of the US and is one of the most culturally interesting cities in the country. Boston is not only home to world renowned universities such as MIT and Harvard, but is also one of the wealthiest and most traditional cities in the United States. Hiring a rental car opens up limitless possibilities for discovering the city and the whole state!

What should I know before renting a car in Boston?

Boston is a busy and large metropolis with a wide range of car rental companies. It is best to search in advance for suitable providers and models at Driveboo, compare the offers and book your dream car - this will save you lots of time and stress upon your arrival. Driveboo will help you determine the best deal for you.

When reserving a rental car, you need to know the acceptable age and number of drivers, what insurance conditions apply and what happens in the event of damage. For example, some car rental companies do not rent - or do so only for an extra charge - to drivers under the age of 25. In addition, the insurance cost may vary. A direct comparison with Driveboo can therefore make your life easier and save you time.

What traffic rules apply in Boston?

Overall, driving a car in the US is pretty relaxed and the driving style of Americans is not significantly different from that of Europeans. However, you should keep an eye out for speed limits and familiarise yourself with local signage so that you're always safe.

The traffic rules are slightly different in all US states. You should, however, always be aware that:

  • In the US, the use of seat belts is mandatory
  • For children up to 5 years or 40 lbs. (18 kg), a car seat is required
  • The alcohol limit in Massachusetts is 0.8 and should be strictly adhered to
  • Speed limit is 65 mph (105 km/h) on interstates and interstate freeways and 55 mph (88.5 km/h) on all other roads
  • Using your phone at the wheel is a punishable offence!
Driveboo tip:

Fun fact: It's forbidden by the law of the state of Massachusetts to carry a gorilla in the back of your car.
