Information about your trip to Buffalo

Getting a car rental in Buffalo is a convenient way to move around when visiting the city. Buffalo is known for its lively Canalside recreation area and shopping on Elmwood Avenue. But if you’re planning on going to Buffalo, you must know its top attraction is Niagara Falls. The impressive waterfalls are only a half an hour drive away from the city center. Parking shouldn’t be an issue, though there are on-street parking meters in the downtown area. You also have to watch out for signs indicating the side of the street you’re allowed to park on for street cleaning. There are plenty of car rental locations to choose from in Buffalo making the process straightforward.

While visiting, is it worthwhile to rent a car while visiting Buffalo?

You’ll be glad you have a rental car to get to Niagara Falls to make sure your visit to Buffalo is complete. On your way there, you can stop off at the charming town of Niagara-On-the-Lake for a walk along the Niagara River or visit a winery. Driving is also an easy way to get around the city. We recommend staying clear of Transit Road (NY-78) during rush hour, Main Street and Delaware Avenue are also known to get pretty congested. Parking isn’t too difficult, just make sure you read any signs restricting the side you're able to park on depending on the day of the week. Buffalo is known for its winter snowfall. Bear this in mind when you’re driving your Buffalo car rental during those months and take the necessary precautions for a safe drive.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in Buffalo?

In Buffalo, a common way to get in trouble is parking on the wrong side of the street due to their "alternate side parking" rule. When your travel plans to Buffalo are during the winter, keep in mind that there are specific rules to follow related to snow and ice on your vehicle. Before driving, you must clear any snow for the top of your vehicle since it can cause an accident while you’re on the move. Also, make sure your windshield is clear as well as your headlights and brake lights. If you’re planning on drinking, we recommend you leave your Buffalo car rental behind. In the state of New York, it’s illegal to drive under the influence.

Will I need a special driver’s license or permit to drive a rental car in Buffalo if I’m visiting from another country?

Before arriving at your car rental in Buffalo, keep in mind that you have to be 21 years old or older to rent a car. If you wish to obtain rental cars in Buffalo with a driver’s license from another country, you aren’t required to have a special permit. Nevertheless, we recommend you have an International Driver’s Permit, especially if the license from your country of origin is not in the Latin alphabet.
