2.0 Mediocre22 Mar. 2021
Cons: I was told and showed rep that I reserved a jeep Cherokee and was told no I would get a compass. Car was dirty from carpet to coffee drips and stains. Doors would not unlock 60% of the time . Large amounts of scratches on the bumper and sides. Keep fab was hit or miss. I was late to catch my flight due to the fact the fob would not detect. Absolutely awful service . Compass didn’t not even fit both of my medium suitcases. Completely not professional and poor business practices. Went and even spoke with manager and said that is what they had and all other vechile stuff were reserved. Hard to believe when the area was full of vechile and ready to go. I will not rent or refer any one to this hertz ever.

Pros: The staff was friendly, the car was clean and roomy. Pick up and drop off was easy.Cons: We were only able to drive the car for the airport, one day while we had it and back to the airport. The key fob wouldn’t work. And it took us a couple of days to find someone who carried the battery. So we had to pay for that also.
9.6 Excellent5 Jan. 2020
Pros: Great guy helped us out
10.0 Excellent9 Dec. 2019
Pros: The two young men at Enterprise and Manchester-Boston Regional Airport were extremely polite, knowledgeable about the type of vehicle we needed, and very helpful and solicitous re any questions or concerns we had. Especially important considering that we were going to be driving on snowy and possibly icy roads. The Kia Sorento with full time AWD and available 4WD was perfect. Overall, one of the best experiences we’ve had in renting a vehicle. Thank youCons: Nothing we could think of

9.2 Excellent10 Sep. 2019
Pros: The rental was exactly what I had reserved and was a nice vehicle with good features. Check in was relatively quick.Cons: Check in could still be quicker. I was not able to get a receipt at turn in since it was a one way rental, which is a bit arcane since it’s all the same company. Overall though good experience.

2.0 Mediocre16 Jun. 2021
Cons: The car for a flat tire while I was driving and dollar refused to reimburse me. I had to pay for a tow truck and tire replacement (and spend time) dealing with this because the car had a bad tire. Horrible customer service.
4.0 Okay29 Mar. 2021
Pros: Drop off was easy, pick up was fine but all of the chargers were unclearCons: The car smelled of smoke when we picked it up. It had sticker residue on all of the windows. It didn’t seem like it was thoroughly cleaned - lots of dust/dirt throughout the interior. Didn’t make us feel like it was properly cleaned especially during a pandemic. Very disappointing.
4.0 Okay25 Jan. 2021
Cons: Car smelled like cigarettes, called Priceline to review options of returning the vehicle as the booking was made through them. Priceline customer service is horrible as they take 10 business days to respond to any requests, by the time my rental would be due back. Never using Priceline again
10.0 Excellent2 Jan. 2021

8.8 Excellent27 Feb. 2020

Cons: The attendant was clear, quick, and gracious. Answered all my questions with the most pleasant attitude. Shame I didn't memorize her name.
5.6 Okay29 Aug. 2019
Pros: Pick up was easy and agent was friendly and helpfulCons: Drop off was awful. Very complicated just for drop-off. The car was having problems with acceleration and an alarm that kept going off randomly and there was no one to tell when I got to Boston (who closes at 3:30 pm on a weekday!!)
9.6 Excellent8 Oct. 2018
Fast and friendly servicePros: Friendly fast and courteous service, both when getting the car and dropping it off.
6.8 Good20 May 2018
No need for a $#&* transponderPros: The car was clean and drove well, had lots of bells and whistles. The drop-off was quick and easy once we found the right parking lot (not very well signed).Cons: Only one waiting at the counter for two rental agencies, long check-in wait. The kind of car I had reserved was not available. I like to drive a small economic vehicle, and all they had were SUVs. The woman at the counter tried to rent me a transponder, told me the toll booths didn't accept currency (wrong!). She also charged me 50 bucks more than I had reserved. Reason: prepay for a full tank of gas. No, no, no! Didn't prepay, of course, If you don't bring back a fuil tank, they charge over nine bucks per gallon for the refill.
7.6 Good22 Nov. 2017
Pros: Car was in good condition & roomyCons: They didn’t have the size car we’d booked and the representative seemed annoyed with us that we asked about our options and whether we’d get a discounted rate if we took a smaller vehicle. We ended up choosing a larger car than we wanted at our same rate so it was fine. Just a bit frustrating when they didn’t have what we reserved & the customer service was a bit lacking.

Top tips for hiring a car in Manchester

  • The easiest way to see everything in and around Manchester is on your own four wheels, so rent a car for your time in the city to make the most out of your trip. The city offers a wide array of great attractions which are dotted all around the city, so getting to see them all becomes considerably easier when you can create your own itinerary and are not tied to public transport. Visitors may also consider taking a day trip to coastal cities like Portsmouth, which is only 50 minutes by car away.
  • If you land at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, consider renting a car directly from the airport grounds to start your time in Manchester as quickly and smoothly as possible. Follow the signs to the car hire center, where travelers will find a wide array of car hire agencies, such as Enterprise, Hertz, or Avis, to name a few. Via the I-293 S, travelers will be in Manchester in less than a quarter of an hour.
  • Bear in mind that winter can bring lots of snow and sleet to New Hampshire and Manchester is no exception. Prepare yourself for wintery driving conditions when visiting during the cold months, and check if the car is properly equipped with winter tires when renting. Travelers may also want to get extra snow chains in case the weather conditions become severe. When there is snow in Manchester, the roads become narrower due to it being piled up on either side, so adjusting your speed and slowly entering intersections is crucial.
  • Morning rush hour in Manchester peaks between 7 and 8 am, so it is better to avoid it for a hassle-free ride. Evening rush hour usually kicks in at around 5 pm and can last until 8 pm, clogging up the streets -- especially the I-93 and I-293, which is teeming with commuters. On weekends, traffic is usually pleasantly smooth and drivers should face no problems, but still check current traffic conditions before driving just in case.
  • Book your car hire in Manchester at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about hiring a car in Manchester

  • Based on ratings and reviews from real users on KAYAK, the best car hire companies in Manchester are Alamo (8.8, 168 reviews), Enterprise (8.7, 120 reviews), and Hertz (8.3, 124 reviews).

  • The average price of fuel in Manchester is $4.75 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a tank of fuel costs between $57 and $76, depending on the car size.

  • Car hire companies onsite at Logan Intl airport include Hertz, Dollar, Thrifty, Alamo, Budget, Europcar, Advance Car And Truck Rental and National.

  • Car hire companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Logan Intl airport to off-airport locations include Hertz, Dollar, Thrifty, Alamo, Budget, Europcar and National.

  • Take a look at our extensive car hire location map to find the best car hire deals near you.

  • A Economy car hire in Manchester costs $62 per day, on average.

  • A 4-wheel drive is definitely a good choice when visiting Manchester, especially during the winter. For people who need more space, a minivan serves as a good choice and will also provide the essential traction needed for icy roads. People who plan to drive mainly inside the city limits should consider a compact car like a smaller SUV, for instance.

  • Within the city limits, there is a maximum speed limit of 20-30 mph, while 55 mph is permitted on divided highways. On freeways, the speed limit is between 65 and 70 mph, so always check the posted signs to see which limit applies.

  • Petrol in Manchester costs approximately $2.50 per gallon. Try to find petrol stations like Budget petrol or 7-Eleven for cheaper offers, often starting at $2.35. Familiarize yourself with the type of petrol your hire car requires, and, if left out overnight during winter, it is recommended to keep the petrol tank at least half full so that the tank pipe doesn’t freeze up.

  • On-street parking in Manchester is metered; simply check the time restrictions and prices on the designated sign. Usually, there is either a two-hour or ten-hour limit, enforced between 8 am and 8 pm. Alternatively, there are parking lots like the Victoria Parking Garage, which has a daily maximum of about $6, or the Canal Lot.
