KAYAK’s 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.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in New York for $85 or less
  • Book your car hire in New York at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in New York are around 31% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Standard hire cars in New York are around 2% cheaper than other car types, on average

A little far from airport but enterprise customer service beats other services I’ve used so far. Could have been a one off with the guy at the desk but typically don’t have great encounters.

call and get Fastrack membership or book early in morning or book the rental 2 hours after your flight bc you will have to wait 90 mins at least i mean they have the best prices compared to enterprise or national all rental cars is worth renting from them.
JackFeb 2024
Even though dropping off the rental took less than 5 mins, ensure you budget no less than 30 mins from returning the car to take the airtrain back to your terminal for check-in
Verified travelerDec 2023
During rush hour the traffic is terrible. It eases a bit around 10 am.

Verified travelerDec 2023
Rent from the car agency directly. Don't use 3rd party "discount" sites. They'll end up costing you more.
BillOct 2023
If you rent a car at JFK or La Guardia from Avis make sure to check that they're is a FULL TANK of GAS in the car & make sure to check that there is no damage to the car you're renting. I've rented a few cars from Avis in Poughkeepsie, NY and the service there is friendly & good. Never a problem. Only in the large cities of NY you'll usually have some type of problem.
Verified travelerSept 2023
If you're driving in New York make sure you check "Allow Tolls" on your GPS navigation app otherwise you may see a lot more of Manhattan than you may have intended.
Verified travelerSept 2023
Used the shuttle from the airport was good driving back to the offsite location was fine also-just know it’s city driving and narrow streets.

Let the staff know that you travel by air the same day that you pick-up the car & show your boarding pass.
AlexJuly 2023
Just stay alert and aware. You can't really drive that fast in NYC anyways. Keep your eyes out for pedestrians and bikes.
VanessaJune 2023
If late night arrival make reservations with multiple agencies (free cancellation) and find which one actually has cars when you get there.
RenieJuly 2023
Don’t rent a car in the city! We only rented to get away to Long Island and Upstate.
HarshaJune 2023
Remember you have to take the air train to the car rental station to reach the hub.

It was a fantastic experience - they first gave me a free upgrade, but wasn't the car I wanted, so they went to another shop to get what I needed. Later, I needed to extend my booking and they responded at 7am! No hassle, and everything was taken care of.

After arriving at the facility with a Lyft for our pre booked rental we then had the hassle that due to fact they have now only have chip pin payment and my chip was not working on my credit card and company policy is they won’t accept debit card, nor would they let anyone in the party pay the “refundable deposit” they just say there with blank looks on their faces saying there was nothing they could do, we were about to drive from NY to Florida, so luckily for us Budget was only a few blocks away and they as always went out of their way to help us get on our 10 day road trip ! Nice to see good old American Customer Service is still alive at Budget as Alamo sucks with theirs!!

I was not told ahead of time they would be running a credit check and I was not allowed to rent a car because I do not have the best credit. This has never happened to me with the many other rental companies I’ve used. I will never use Avis again. I was embarrassed in front of a room full of people, and my trips plans weee ruined. Never ever again.

Avis did not honour the prepayment voucher. I had to pay their rate, which was double what I had prepaid, and the value that I paid was applied against the full walk up cost of the rental. I am spending a long time trying to get this rectified. And there was a 30min wait in line before I was served. The car was good, comfortable and clean, and had a full tank. However, the car is factory fitted with SatNav when I tried to use it, it said that this was a subscription service. It was disabled as I did not add it as an extra.

Great location, quick service at pickup and drop off. BEWARE when picking up your car @ Avis - my car, though new, had a lot of scratches- upon dropping off the Stuart tried to charge me for one which was not ticked off (and was disappointed when he learned I had the full insurance and videotaped the car when picked up)

Long wait time of over 30 minutes at the JFK Federal circle for car to get ready n handed over to me. Secondly there was no windshield washer in the vehicle. Not a pleasant experience.

I received a damage report for damage that I was not responsible for. The customer service rep rushed off the phone and transferred me after I asked her not to. Horrendous experience and I won't be using Avis again.

Staff was efficient and helpful, pickup and drop-off was very easy. I had a much better experience here than I had with a previous rental with Dollar nearby.

Pickup and drop off easy. JFK is JFK so getting in and out of airport less than ideal.

Pros:

i came here after my reservation with ACE fell through - these guys brought me an upgrade in about 5 minutes despite not even having a registration for more than half an hour. was really impressed, & that's not something i'm used to saying about car rental places.

Cons:

one "invisible bill", possibly linked to a toll bridge...or is that troll bridge? hmm
