Located in the northwest of the United States is the mountainous state of Idaho. The state's scenic byways are the perfect way to explore the rural side of this beautiful location. Idaho's mountainous terrain has given Idaho the name Gem State, as almost every type of precious gem has been discovered here. With so many unique attractions to visit, planning your route is essential. Hiring a car in Idaho lets you explore the area at your own leisure and visit some of Idaho's top attractions. Located in Boise, the World Centre for Birds of Prey is well worth a visit - the sanctuary is in a beautiful setting and there are countless endangered species on display.
Idaho Falls is possibly one of the state's most popular natural attractions. This stunning town is nestled on the outskirts of the Rocky Mountains. Tautphaus Park Zoo is home to exotic animals such as tigers, bears and leopards. If you're considering hiring a car in Idaho, then take a trip to beautiful Boise. Located around a four-hour car journey from Idaho Falls, Boise is a must for tourists who want to really get back to nature. The snow-capped Rocky Mountains serve as the perfect backdrop and the Boise River winds through the city. For a snapshot of the state's culture, head to the Idaho History Museum which houses excellent displays and interesting artefacts.
Before driving around Idaho it's wise to look up the rules of the road so you have an understanding of what the enforced driving regulations are. Like anywhere, take special care when approaching junctions which accept traffic from four directions. The vehicle which arrives at the junction first has right of way; vehicles then continue to move off in the order that they have arrived. It's important to know that vehicles can't overtake a school bus if it's displaying red flashing lights. There are usually signs at intersections, but in the event that there are none you're able to turn right when the red light is showing as there won't be vehicles approaching from the right. If a red arrow is showing you're unable to turn left or right.

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.
