Few United States cities can rival Boston in terms of history and culture, but New England's biggest city contains just as much history on its streets as inside its numerous museums. Although Boston boasts one of the best public transportation systems of any American city, many of its 16 million annual visitors use car hire in Boston to explore this fascinating city.
Boston Logan International Airport, the biggest in New England, lies just six kilometres outside of downtown Boston and is among the easiest places to compare car hire options in the city. However, Boston is also home to the oldest and one of the most reliable subway systems in the United States, the T'. Boston also has a reliable network of buses, trolleys and commuter rail routes. Visitors can even depart Boston Logan International Airport aboard a leisurely shuttle boat to Rowe's Wharf.
There may seem to be downsides to driving in Boston, including confusing streets, scarce parking spaces and notoriously rude local motorists. However, car rental in Boston becomes a greater necessity once visitors wish to venture outside the city limits to New England's beautiful beaches and countryside. Although 25 is the standard minimum age to rent vehicles in this city, Boston Logan International Airport's Enterprise, Alamo and Thrifty branches will rent to customers as young as 21.
Boston's layout shares much in common with many European cities, with a city centre built two centuries before the invention of the automobile. The difficult task of parking in Boston can be simplified by using downtown Boston parking garages or private parking facilities in hotels. Driving becomes far more pleasant once motorists head for Boston's outskirts along Interstate 90, otherwise known as the Mass Pike, or Interstate 93.
Boston visitors may be surprised at how many day trips they can take in such a relatively small geographic area. In addition to the popular beach getaways of Cape Cod and Nantucket, history buffs can also enjoy the Adams National Historic Site's 11 well-preserved buildings, travel the same path Paul Revere rode to Lexington, visit Ralph Waldo Emerson's Concord home or relive the Salem witch trials.
Boston's annual daytime temperature of 15°C belies the city's coldest winter months from November to February. Summers can be surprisingly hot and humid, but autumn is Boston's most colourful season thanks to the changing leaves on New England's trees. However, Boston visitors should prepare for all sorts of weather no matter when they arrive as winter warm spells and early autumn snowstorms aren't uncommon.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
