Connecticut is a state in the region of New England, in the northeast United States; its capital is Hartford. Located east of CN you will find the state of Rhode Island, while New York is to the east, and Massachusetts is to the north. The area is served by Bradley International Airport which is situated in Windsor Locks, a short drive about 15 miles north of Hartford. Car hire in Connecticut allows you to drive to some of the most famous attractions in CN, which include Connecticut State Capitol and the Connecticut Science Centre.
Rent a car in Connecticut and drive into Hartford to The Mark Twain House and Museum. This popular attraction is an inspiration for anyone with a love of literature. Here you can discover more about Twain's life and take a guided tour of the house which has been called “one of the ten best historic homes in the world” by National Geographic. Art fans should head to Wadsworth Atheneum which is one of the oldest art museums in the United States; it was founded in 1842, and houses European and American paintings and sculptures.
The driving rules in Connecticut can be different to those in other states. If you need to perform a U-turn you must check for signs to see if the area you are in allows this. U-turns are not legal everywhere. It is also a legal requirement that you must carry out signals given to you by a law enforcement officer even if they contradict traffic signs. If you come across a school bus which has stopped and has a red light flashing to indicate children crossing, whether it is on your side of the road or not, you must stop.

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.
