Top tips for renting a car in Yosemite National Park

  • Yosemite National Park is a great place for family trips, and if your kids are tagging along, be aware of the car seat rules in place. When driving in Yosemite National Park in California, kids should be secured in a rear-facing car seat if under two years of age and in a booster seat if younger than eight but older than two. If, for any reason, a child eight or younger doesn’t fit in a car seat, they should at least wear a seatbelt.
  • All kinds of vehicles can manage the drive into Yosemite National Park. The type of rental car to choose from largely depends on the number of passengers and the amount of luggage you’re carrying. A large passenger van or a minivan should do the trick if you’re in Yosemite National Park for camping. If you’re planning to go beyond the Half Dome, you might need an SUV or even a 4WD.
  • Most car rental agencies in Yosemite National Park will allow you to register an additional driver. If the additional driver is your spouse or domestic partner, most rental locations won’t charge the additional driver fee if they meet the driver’s license and age requirements. You will also need a debit card when securing the rental car. If there will be any other additional drivers, they must be present at the time of renting and meet the same age and driver’s license requirements.
  • You can travel across state and national borders in a Yosemite National Park car rental. Currently, travel into Mexico is restricted by most rental companies. However, you are free to travel into Canada with your rental car. All you need to do is inform the car rental location of your travel plans to Canada, and you will be issued a Canadian non-residence insurance card for your protection. Nonetheless, you cannot access certain vehicles classes for cross-border travel, such as exotics, large passenger and cargo vans, and other specialty vehicles.

FAQs about renting a car in Yosemite National Park

  • Should I rent a car in Yosemite National Park?

    It is practical to get a Yosemite National Park car rental to facilitate your trip. The Yosemite National Park region is massive and traversing the area using the available public transport can be quite the hassle. Moreover, the strict schedule and rigidity of the public transport system take the fun out of the trip. But with a car rental, you can quickly get to various cities, save time, and enjoy dictating the path of your journey. If you are visiting the iconic national park for a camping, hiking, or kayaking trip, a rental car will allow you to easily access remote locations and bring as much gear as you prefer.
