What you need to know about rental cars in New York

New York City is filled with wondrous sights and engaging activities, making it one of the most visited cities in the United States. From the green spaces of Central Park to the glittering lights of Times Square, there’s something for everyone in this exciting metropolis. On your next trip to New York, save some money—and give yourself new wings—by reserving a cheap New York car rental.

How can I get a cheap car rental in New York?

With cheap car rentals in the Big Apple from CarRentals.com, you won’t miss a thing. But to get the best rate on your vehicle, we advise you to:

  • - Compare rates and deals;
  • - Avoid airport pick-ups and drop-offs;
  • - Know in advance how much fuel and mileage you think you might need;
  • - Search and reserve in advance, or as early as you can.

Which car rental companies are situated in New York?

You’ll see the big names like Sixt, Hertz, and Avis, but there are also some smaller regional companies in NY. Have a look at reviews when booking.

What kind of car should I get in New York?

This depends on a few factors: what your plans are, the size of your party, and the amount of luggage you’re bringing with you. An SUV, minivan, or 4x4 would be perfect for larger groups with lots of kit, but a small economy car could be enough if you’re in a couple.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in New York?

You must be 21 years or older to rent a car. A surcharge may be added to the rental cost for drivers under the age of 25, however.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in New York?

Yes. Your own car or credit card insurance might cover you for car rentals. If it doesn’t, as a US citizen, you can just purchase insurance at the CarRentals.com checkout or from therentalcompany.

What fuel policy is available in New York?

Our rentals often come with a full-to-full fuel policy as standard. If that’s the case, remember to fill up the tank before you return the vehicle!

Can I book with unlimited mileage when renting a car in New York?

Many suppliers offer unlimited mileage, which is the perfect choice if you have planned your trip in advance and know that you’ll be covering a lot of ground in your rental.

Is it possible to hire a car one-way in New York?

Yes. Additional fees may apply, so check in advance.

3sights that you cannot miss in New York

The possibilities are endless in New York when you’ve got a rental car to get around in. A few of our favorite things to do include:

  • seeing a top performance at the Landmark Theatre in Syracuse, a beautifully ornate and historic theater;
  • going wild at the Bronx zoo;
  • taking a road trip through Queens in search of the best New York pizza!

3 great day trips from New York

There are many reasons to choose a car rental in New York rather than relying on public transportation. Besides enjoying the ability to travel at leisure as opposed to depending on public transit, you also open yourself up to a multitude of day trips.

After all, a visit to New York, NY does not bind you to Manhattan. You may want to head 90 miles east for some genuine rest and relaxation in the Hamptons. If you live for football, the New York Giants and the New York Jets share MetLife Stadium® about 13 miles north in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Or perhaps you’d like to cruise to Buffalo to lounge in the scenic Lafayette Square.

What is parking like in New York?

Roads can be busy in New York, and your parking options are commercial lots or street parking. If you come across the latter, be sure to read the signs, to avoid being towed or issued a parking ticket.

However you choose to arrive in the city, you will need the best car rental you can find. You can find exactly what you need right here at CarRentals.com, whether you want an economy car to zip through the streets, or a SUV to take you to the Hamptons.

Browse our rental cars and save money and time on your next New York vacation.
