Hertz in Utah

For quick and easy car rental in Utah, check out one of the 30-plus branches around the state, which is known for its beauty, history and outdoor activities. With much of Utah being rural, by car is far and away the easiest way to travel, enabling you to see more of and do more in the state that boasts the Great Salt Lake, expansive salt flats and some of the worlds’ most stunning desert landscapes in Canyon Country.

Utah is where you can find some of America’s most exhilarating views and it seems as if it were designed for drivers, with long interstate highways snakingthroughendless country, and cities laid out in easy-to-navigate grid patterns. It’s one of the best of the American states to drive in, whether you’re simply touring the historic cities and towns, or traveling somewhere to go rock climbing, horseback riding or camping.

Driving and Parking in Utah

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 25 to hire a car in Utah, or over 20 upon payment of an age differential charge. If you are from outside the United States of America, you will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Utah, take a look at our page about renting a car in the USA.

When you rent a car in Utah, there are two toll roads to remember. The Adams Avenue Parkway in Ogden connecting US-89 to I-84 only costs $1 to use and you can pay in cash at the toll. The I-15, on the other hand, is not a toll road as such, but it does have managed express lanes that you can only use if you have purchased an electronic pass. This is worth doing if you are staying in Utah some time and will be using I-15 regularly.

Parking in Utah will vary from place to place in terms of availability and rates. Major cities will have more choice of parking but will generally be more expensive, while you should find cheaper or free parking in smaller towns — although there will usually be fewer spaces.

Driving in and around Utah

Key Routes

The principal route through Utah is I-15, which runs through the state from north to south, taking in major urban areas such as Ogden, Salt Lake City, Provo and St. George. It also runs past and gives access to Dixie National Forest, Zion National Park and Red Cliffs National Conservation Area, making it a diverse and scenic route through the state.

Rent a car in Utah and you’ll also find yourself using I-80 to drive through the astounding salt flats and visit the Great Salt Lake. I-70, however, will give you a beautiful drive through Manti-La Sal National Forest and Fishlake National Forest. All of these roads also lead to the smaller US highways, from which you can discover some quintessentially American small towns.

Major Highways

The aforementioned interstates connect Utah its neighbouring states of Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Arizona and Nevada. When driving on the interstate, there are a few things to remember:

• Drive on the right but pass on the left. Stick to the right-hand lanes except for when passing.
• Stick to or below the speed limit but, most importantly, keep your speed consistent.
• When you merge with the interstate, get up to speed with the other vehicles as quickly and safely as you can.
• If you can, pull over to the hard shoulder should you have an accident and call the police and any other necessary emergency services.
