Given its southern location in the United States and the borders with Florida and the Gulf of Mexico, Alabama is the perfect base for a great climate and to take advantage of a beautiful range of beaches. Car hire in Alabama allows you to cross the border into Mississippi, or Florida if you base yourself in the south of the state. Mobile is a great location to spend your time in AL as not only can you take advantage of the coastline, but it's also where the USS Alabama is based, in the Battleship Memorial Park - a great day of activities for anybody with an interest in American history.
The state capital, Montgomery, is home to several of Alabama's highlights. If you're hiring a car in Alabama then head for the Alabama State Capitol building. Completed in 1851, there is plenty of history to keep you entertained inside, with beautifully maintained grounds outside. If you rent a car in Alabama, don't neglect the north of the state. Birmingham is the state's largest city and has the beautiful Botanical Gardens, which include original sculptures as well as easy entertainment for younger family members with the Children's Plant Adventure Zone. If you have opportunity through the evening, head to The Alabama Theatre, the only district theatre still in operation today.
Alabama has major interstates running through the state, so getting around by car is convenient whether you're staying within Alabama or heading into other areas of the US. With several airports serving the state, planning your trip really couldn't be easier no matter what the time of year or where you're heading in from. Be aware of the handful of toll roads in operation in the state and check your route ahead of your trip. If you're planning to head into other states on your journey, it's best to double-check road laws as they can differ significantly between states.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
