Car Rental, Driving and Parking in Boston
In Boston, as with the rest of the USA, vehicles always stay on the right-hand side. Most rental companies at Logan Airport only rent to drivers over 25, although Alamo, Thrifty and Enterprise often hire cars to those as young as 21 years old.
Driving around the heart of downtown Boston can be difficult and extremely chaotic, with one-way streets and roads regularly being closed due to the city's famous 'Big Dig', which is being managed by the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority. Those looking to park in the city center should consider staying at a hotel with its own parking space, underground garage or nearby parking lot. Popular garages in downtown Boston quickly fill up and can be found along Beacon Street, Tremont Street, Province Street and Devonshire Place.
