Key Routes

The principle routes through Virginia are the interstate highways, which can get you to most parts of the state through connection with secondary roads.

There are three main interstates in Virginia. The I-81 connects the most northerly towns such as Roanoke, Harrisonburg and Winchester. The I-64, on the other hand, takes you through Charlottesville, Richmond, Newport News and Hampton, taking in The Historical Triangle along the way. Lastly, the I-95 cuts through Petersburg, Richmond and Fredericksburg. From the connections these three routes create, you can journey to pretty much anywhere in the state in your car rental in Virginia.

Major Highways

When you rent a car in Virginia, you may well want to drive out into the neighboring states. The interstate highways can take you to Washington (District of Columbia), Maryland, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and North Carolina, enabling you to see all these states have to offer.

If you are going to drive on the interstate, there are some rules and points of road etiquette you should remember:

• When merging, get up to speed with traffic already on the interstate as quickly and safely as possible.
• Keep in the right lane unless you are overtaking. Generally speaking, the left lanes should only be used for passing.
• Don’t break the speed limit but also do not go too slowly — keep your speed consistent so as not to cause problems for other drivers.
• If driving into more mountainous states, remember to keep momentum on uphill climbs so that you do not slow to a crawl.
• If you break down or have an accident, pull over to the hard shoulder and call Hertz or the emergency services respectively.
