Top tips for hiring a car in New York

  • One of the major advantages of renting a car in New York City is that it makes the outlying boroughs much more accessible. For instance, places like Rockaway Beach in Queens, Red Hook in Brooklyn, and City Island in the Bronx are all much easier to reach via car than by public transportation.
  • For travelers with flights landing at LaGuardia Airport, all hire shuttles pick up and drop off from in front of Terminal A of the airport. As for JFK International Airport, hire car desks can be found on the Arrivals level of each terminal. At Newark International Airport, the car hire desks are found in Stations P2 and P3 on the AirTrain.
  • Rush hour is an undeniable part of life in New York City. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t be mitigated. Typically morning the busy morning traffic lasts from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., while the afternoon and evening traffic is usually from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Drivers should take care, though, that those are the busiest times, but often rush hour can start even earlier in the morning and last even later at night. Some of the main areas to avoid during rush hour include the Lincoln Tunnel and the Brooklyn Bridge.
  • Biking is very popular in New York City and drivers should remain careful and aware of the bikers around them. Make sure to always check your mirrors when turning right and when opening a door, as you never know when a biker could pop up behind you.

What type of car is recommended for driving in New York?

What type of car is recommended for driving in New York City?Smaller vehicles are highly recommended for vacation-goers in New York City, especially if you plan to use a hire car as your main form of transportation. There are many one-way streets and smaller alleys that can be difficult to navigate with a larger car. It can also be difficult to find streetside parallel parking spots large enough to suit anything above a mid-sized vehicle.

What's the speed limit in New York?

A wide range of speed limits will be seen in New York City, but the most important detail to note is that the speed limit is always 25 mph unless signage says otherwise. On highways throughout New York, the maximum speed limit is 55 mph and the minimum is 45 mph, unless posted otherwise.

How are gas prices in New York?

Petrol prices on average in New York City are neither expensive nor cheap. On average, the petrol price sits around $2.60 per gallon, which is a fair bit cheaper than Seattle’s $3+ but a bit more expensive than Dallas’ $2. One thing to note though, is that there are very few petrol stations in Manhattan, so drivers should keep an eye on their fuel gauge and plan accordingly.

Where are the best places to park in New York?

Streetside parking in New York City is incredibly difficult to find, especially in areas such as Manhattan. Thus, many drivers rely heavily on parking garages for both daily and hourly parking. However, planning must be done in advance as many of the garages can fill up fast, so it pays to plan ahead of time to know which garages are most convenient for your destination.
