    Maine car rental FAQ

    Will I need an International Driver’s Permit to rent a car in Maine?

    Most car rental companies don’t require newcomers to the United States to acquire an International Driver's Permit (IDP) to rent a car in Maine. However, some car rental suppliers may ask for this credential, so it’s best to check with the company before reserving a car in Maine. Either way, you will need a valid driver’s license from your country to place your order.

    Auto Europe customer service contactDoes Maine offer one-way car rentals?

    As far as pricing goes, it is more pricey to rent a car in the USA than the European Union due to insurance policies for taking USA car rental to other countries. It may be possible but best to contact the Auto Europe team to find out the rate beforehand. We know which USA car rental suppliers will permit one-way car rentals to Canada or Mexico.

    Is there free cancellation for Maine car rentals?

    Timing is of the essence when attempting to cancel your car rental without charge. Specifically, travelers can cancel reservations completely free of charge up to 48 hours prior to scheduled pick-up time. Anything sooner will result in some sort of fee.
