Deer Lake car rental driving tips
The island of Newfoundland is best visited with your own car hire, and they can be in high demand, so book early. It is a remote place, and you may find yourself driving on long stretches of road with no gas stations so it is advisable to fill up whenever your tank starts getting low - and ensure you are carrying food, water, warm clothes and a mobile phone in case of breakdowns.
Newfoundland’s weather is very changeable. Be prepared for sunshine, high winds, rain and fog in the summertime, and all of those plus snow when driving in winter. You may also come across wildlife on the road, which can be a major hazard - particularly if it is a big animal like a moose. Drive slowly and keep your eyes peeled.
