Road Regulations of Europe and North America

European and North American Road Rules


Did you know, when driving in Sweden, you must keep your lights on all day and night? How about that you can only park on a certain side of the road in Romania, or do you know the correct side of the road to drive on in Malta?

Our point is, although the majority of Europe is connected, each country has their own set of rules and regulations regarding driving and safety, likewise with North America. To help with this, we have put together a country by country overview of the major regulations that you should know before driving your Avis rental vehicle abroad.

We have covered such regulation information as speed limits, seatbelt and child seat safety, unique country driving laws, compulsory equipment in your Avis rental car, the correct side of road to drive on and Emergency Services contact information.

Road rules and laws constantly change, our goal is to supply you with the most up to date, correct, information we can to help make you aware, confident and safe when driving your Avis rental, abroad.

Don't forget to explore our Avis location pages and take in some scenery with the Avis Great Drives. Make the most of your car rental and holiday!
