We are planning a holiday partly driving in Vermont and New Hampshire this October to see fall colours and then going on to other visits. We fly to Toronto but hope to fly on to Montreal, hire a car there and drop it off at Toronto after two weeks. Canadian Affair offers car hire through National, which offers no-cost one way rental. Good! However their terms state, at one point "Driving on roads that are not government maintained voids the contract..." and at another point: "Driving on unpaved roads voids Loss Damage Waiver coverage".
So, what's really the situation here? Are most dirt roads in Vermont "government maintained" (ie "public roads" I guess)? Do people think there is a problem with driving a hire car on them? What is people's experience of this?
