Iowa, or The Hawkeye State, is located in the Midwest United States. Known as one of the safest states, Iowa is unique in that it's the only state entirely bordered on both sides by rivers. The state is served by Des Moines International Airport, which is close to its capital city of the same name. Car hire in Iowa makes for an easier way to get around as the state has four primary interstate highways to allow ease of access to its many thriving cities. Drive into IA capital Des Moines, to Wells Fargo Arena where you can watch a range of sports including basketball and ice hockey - and even catch a music concert whenever a big name is in town.
Hiring a car in Iowa gives you the freedom to travel around the state at your leisure. Head to the Des Moines Art Centre to get your cultural fix. Built in 1948, the centre has an impressive collection of paintings and modern art by famous artists such as Andy Warhol, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, and Mark Rothko. Spend an evening out at the Wells Fargo Arena where as well as having the opportunity to watch sport, you can also take in a music concert; famous names to have played there include Tom Petty and the Black Crowes.
The first thing to remember when driving in the States is that cars travel on the right-hand side of the road. If you are driving in Iowa you must first apply for an International Driving Permit before you travel to the United States. When driving on roads that have four or more lanes it is important to consider that vehicles can pass you on both the left and the right hand side. This can only be done if it is safe to do so, although the general rule is that drivers should keep to the right unless they need to pass another vehicle.

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.
