Top tips for renting a car in The Hamptons

  • Driving in The Hamptons is fun but adhere to the posted speed limits. Like in most cities in the U.S., the speed limits in The Hamptons are in mph. Maintain a speed limit of 65 mph when driving in urban areas and 20-25 mph in community neighborhoods. In addition, the speed limit on single-carriageways is 60 mph, while on dual carriage roads and motorways, you can cruise as fast as 70 mph.
  • When driving in rural areas in The Hamptons, remember that some roads can be narrow and winding. It is thus not surprising to encounter bridges or single-track roads only wide enough to allow passage for one car. Therefore, drive carefully on narrow streets, and keep an eye on unique square signs or passing places marked by black and white poles before overtaking. Remember to give way to vehicles going uphill, and the car nearest to the bridge has the right of way on a narrow bridge.
  • The traffic regulations require every car occupant to wear their seat belts, regardless of where they are sitting, front or back. Children aged eight or below must use a proper child restraint system like a booster seat, which rental companies provide at a small fee. The child restraint device must also be proportional to their weight and height. Kids over four feet nine inches are allowed to use a shoulder harness and seat belt.
  • You won’t have challenges securing parking in The Hamptons, as there are numerous spaces where you can quickly and conveniently drop off your car. Most street parking downtown is metered. Use the parking app on your phone or tablet to locate the free spaces within the town center and the neighboring streets. If you are residing at a hotel, you can also take advantage of their free and safe parking, usually available on the weekends.
  • Book your rental car in The Hamptons at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in The Hamptons are around 2% more expensive than other car types, on average

    With many benefits available, you won’t regret renting a car while touring The Hamptons. The flexibility and convenience of exploring the hidden gems with a rental car are unbeatable. Although The Hamptons boasts great public transportation, including trains and buses, their fixed routes and travel schedules limit your freedom to experience this beautiful community. Furthermore, you are likely to get a car that caters to your needs from the many car rental providers in the area. Finally, rental cars guarantee comfort and privacy, which public transportation cannot offer.

  • What is driving like in The Hamptons?

    Like the rest of the United States of America, you must stick to the right as you drive in The Hamptons. Keep an eye on the road signs, as making a left turn during certain hours on some major avenues is prohibited. Do not drive with a BAC of more than .08 percent, as the fine is punitive for violators. Give way to pedestrians, emergency vehicles with flashing lights, and school buses. Also, be extra careful when driving in undesignated areas, especially on rural roads where animals such as deer cross unexpectedly.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in The Hamptons?

    Car rental agencies in The Hamptons will only allow you to rent their car if you are 21 or older, and a surcharge policy is applied to all renters under 25.  Renters below 25 may not be able to access some vehicle classes, including convertibles, luxury vehicles, and full-size SUVs. Moreover, you must have a valid driver's license, which you must have had for at least a year before renting a car. You will need a credit card to make your payment when planning to rent a car in The Hamptons. Note that the name on your credit card must correspond to your ID.
