KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Boston

  • Rent a car during your stay in Boston and gain ultimate flexibility to explore not only the vibrant city but also the surrounding areas while you’re there, such as Connecticut or New Hampshire. Opting for a rental car will make trips to destinations further out of the city center far easier, for instance the Foxboro Football Stadium, which is 28 miles from Boston and by car can be conveniently reached in half an hour.
  • Boston International Airport has a Car Rental Center which features a 4-level garage for the abundance of cars on offer and can be reached by the airport’s free shuttle service. The shuttle bus leaves from all terminals every 5-6 minutes. The buses can be found at the lower level of every terminal and are blue and white. In the Rental Center, there are various different rental services including Zipcar, Entertainment, Avis or E-Z Rent-A-Car, so it should be no hassle to find the perfect ride to further destinations.
  • Boston has a lot of traffic and navigating yourself through the many intersections can be confusing at times, however navigation systems can be easily added to a rental car and this will help you reach further destinations without any problems. Boston’s pedestrians are known to jaywalk and cyclists regularly don’t adhere to the traffic light regulations, so paying extra attention and double-checking for pedestrians and cyclists while driving is very important.
  • Boston is one of the cities with the worst rush hour in the US, so try to avoid it by going to your destination before or after (rush hour is most intense approximately between 5pm and 6pm on weekdays). Especially the intersections along Interstate 93 and the Route 128 are known to be clogged with traffic and should be avoided during rush hour times altogether if possible, as alternative side roads are also congested during these times. Also bear in mind that winters can bring snow and ice to Boston, and you should drive extra carefully.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Boston for $87 or less
  • Book your car hire in Boston at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Boston are around 13% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate car hire in Boston are around 28% cheaper than other car types, on average

Boston traffic is as expected. Keep your wits about you, be patient, and all will be fine. Don't be on "vacation" behind the wheel. Stay focused

Watch for one way streets that will require you to drive around the block to get access to garage.
Verified travelerJan 2024
All enterprises close at 5pm. Be mindful when you book your rental.
Verified travelerSept 2023
Save A LOT by renting downtown, not at the airport. If you haven't been in Boston for a while, be prepared not to have any idea where you are.
Verified travelerOct 2023
We were for the most part ok using a map on Apple CarPlay. We missed a few turns but overall the traffic was pretty smooth.

Make sure you have gps and don't hesitate to use

To get to the Rental Car Center from the BOS Airport, locate rental cars, take the blue Massport shuttle bus and it will announce Rental Car Center because a lot of us on the bus were not entirely sure where to go to rent our cars. Beware when renting from Thrifty from the Boston Airport.
Verified travelerNov 2023
Check the quality of your car seat and your child’s fit in the car seat before leaving the lot to pick them up. Bring them with you to pick up the car if possible.
AbieNov 2023
Give a call to the rental center to see what is actually in their inventory before your trip.

Plan plenty of time between the airport and rental center. I would plan an hour each way

While I don't recommend driving in the city of Boston, it was nice to have a car to drive outside of Boston. We enjoyed our time in Boston walking most of the time. On our last day in Boston we used a rental car to drive through New Hampshire and Maine.
EddieJuly 2023
Amazing! Great selection of cars, easy pick up and drop off, VERY CLEAN and in great condition. Best value for a luxury SUV rental we have ever had!

Get Avis, Budget group as they have 5 or 6 people working booth, so line not long.
Verified travelerJuly 2023
Don’t rent from Avis, we would recommend Hertz.
MartinJuly 2023
If you aren’t familiar with Boston, have your GPS ready. It can be confusing. Also, there are a lot of one way streets, so watch the signs. You always have to be aware of which lane to be in. You might actually have to switch lanes frequently just to drive straight ahead, as lanes that were drive straight lanes turn into turn lanes.
Verified travelerJuly 2023
Give yourself extra time as all rental cars are off property. You have to take a blue rental car bus to the center and then make sure you get on the correct blue bus when returning (as they go to different terminals at Logan).
Verified travelerJuly 2023
The sumner tunnel is closed. So make sure you tell who ever you’re meeting that it will take a little longer.
AshishJuly 2023
To get to rental station from shuttle could take about 30 minutes- to an hour to reach so plan accordingly
Verified travelerAug 2023
If you have a preference for electric or gasoline say so upfront. Be patient and prepared for lots of traffic.
SamJune 2023
Don’t use Dollar/Thrifty unless you’re prepared to wait! It’s a good deal financially, but a bit time suck.

Show up 3 hours early to get a rental if you want to keep your schedule

MorganJune 2023
I rented a car to drive home to ME so it’s a non issue but Boston is an extremely difficult city to drive in if you’ve never been here before. There is minimal signage and people from Massachusetts drive very differently. When they want to merge they just do. You must be on the defense at all times. There is always traffic too. You do not need a car if staying in the city proper in fact I’d recommend against it. Between the T and Uber and really just walking, you can get everywhere you need to, plus there really isn’t any parking except expensive garages if you’re lucky enough to find one. And if you’re renting from the airport to go elsewhere you’re fine with GPS. But with GPS trying to find something downtown? Good luck. You’ll be stuck in traffic for days and never find what you’re looking for. If you’re renting a car to drive to the cape especially in busy season I hope your flight is very early or late because you will be stuck in traffic for hours as well
Verified travelerMay 2023
Parking was the worst. You might as well Uber or bike everywhere. Driving was interesting as I'm used to lanes and there aren't many lanes here; the roads kind of just throw you in there and see who wins lol. The drivers are pretty nice though and easy to flow with. The roads were very clean and in good condition.
Verified travelerMay 2023
Driving is very challenging in Boston. Many roads that are underground and then have to double back to get on the proper highway. Actually, my Google maps did a reasonable job considering all the underground transportation.
Verified travelerMay 2023
Be patient! And careful on the dropoff not to take the keys with you when you drop the car, there is a $250 charge for doing that.

I booked a rental and set the pickup time through Kayak. There was zero mention of the hours for the pickup location and when I arrived at 5 (my scheduled time) I was unable to obtain the vehicle since it was closed. This required me to argue with enterprise on the phone to get the reservation cancelled, additional charges, and then I had to pay for Uber to drive me to the next rental car location which was 24 hours- that was a 3 hour Uber ride.

Pros:

The check-out person at the garage was very nice.

Cons:

We waited in line for almost 30 minutes to get our car, and the rep, who was very nice, moved at a snails pace. By the time we got to our car, we had to wait another 10+ minutes as there was a line of cars getting checked out to leave the garage. In the end, it took 90 minutes in total from the time I got off my plane until I left the garage with my car.

KAYAK

Pros:

Was economical. Car was fine, pretty typical rental process.

Cons:

Employees are trained to try to get you to purchase all the useless extras. The counter pickup experience is very slow, with the process sometimes taking 20-30 minutes for a single customer as they try to convince them that the insurance and extras are worth it. It's not that much different than other rental places, but definitely slower and slightly more obnoxious. Still, I'll always go with the cheapest rental.

Pros:

Good price, nice car

Cons:

Our flight was changed due to a storm and when I called Advantage, the phone agent said as long as we picked it up within 24 hours of our original reservation, the car would be held for us and no changes needed to be made for the reservation. However, when we arrived, with our young children who had just traveled by plane, the car had NOT been held for us and we'd been marked down as a "no show." When we told the agent at the desk (Alexandra Garcia in Boston) that we'd called ahead, she said we could pay extra for a more expensive car, but she took no responsibility for the problem and was incredibly rude. What a horribly disappointing experience.

I booked my car for 48 hours, but when I tried to drop it off after 47 hours, I learned the drop off location had closed 30 minutes earlier. Because the location was closed at the expiration time of my reservation, they charged me an extra day It would have been nice, when I picked up the car, if they had pointed out that the return location was going to be closed at 5pm on Saturday, as I could have easily been there by the 4pm closing time.

The booking you gave me was not in the airport and the pickup time approved and suggested by your booking service was when the Hertz location was closed so I was unable to pick up the reserved vehicle. The entire reason for booking in advance is to ensure I can trust I have a vehicle when I arrive. All of that was lost completely. I lack words to express my disappointment

Hertz charged me an additional $9.87 on top of what Kayak said would be my "Rental car total" for both reservations (conf # K6630810193 and K6571318780). What is this?? Robert

Our pickup experience was horrible!! At first, the man I spoke with was very nice and picking up the car was easy. I installed the car seat (ridiculous they charge for these, they are legally required for safety) and went to pick up my husband and son at our hotel. When we tried to get my son in the seat, we realized the straps would not tighten properly on the seat. The drivers seat was also too high to the ceiling for my torso height causing my view of the road to be blocked by the rear view mirror. We returned to the rental counter to get a new car seat and swap vehicles. It was 10:05 am or so at this point. We did not get on the road until 11:30AM due to so much back and forth trying to do a simple car seat and vehicle swap. We were repeatedly told to go to the wrong area for assistance, and had to drive through the Boston airport property each time to get there only to be told nobody could help us. It was extremely frustrating and delayed our trip by hours. Our poor toddler was stuck in his car seat for way more time than necessary as a result. Horrible experience.

We rented a compact SUV to be picked up on Friday at 7PM. We arrived to the rental car center to find no lines at all other vendors and a line of what had to be 100 people waiting for cars at Thrifty. There was one poor employee that looked like he was going to cry. The line was long because they had no cars. We received no notification that there were no cars. We were driving at least two hours north to New Hampshire so we made a whole new reservation with Avis. I have been told I can submit that reservation to make up for the difference in price for the purchase at Thrifty. How is this ok when they were significantly overbooked and had no product?! Will never book this way again.

I don't enjoy booking a car by entering my information and credit card online, then getting a text message to filll out more info, take photos of my license, sign, so I can expedite pickup. Then I still have to go to a counter and do all that again. 3 times. Book online, walk to a car and get in. So easy. But no. And I was a given a much smaller car then I anticipated. You have too many classifications of cars that are not clearly delineated when booking. I'll be going with Hertz next time even if they cost more.

Cons:

Left iPad in glove compartment. When I returned to the car rental area the iPad hadn't been handed in to the manager or lost property after the car was cleaned which was disappointing. I couldn't check car myself as it had been rented out even though I had returned within 3 hours of having left the car back
