There were no cars when I went to go pick up my reservation. They had 12 parties waiting for up to an hour and a half to get a car that they had reserved. They didn’t offer me a toll pass for my reservation. Also, they never emailed me a confirmation after drop off and when I called customer service, they had charged a $30 late fee, which wasn’t right.

Extremely hard and almost impossible to get a rental without a reservation. Outrageous prices! If I wasn’t desperate to get home I would never have used there service. I can say the women who helped me did was she could and went above and beyond, or at least made me feel that way. It’s hertz corporate that’s the problem. Criminal how they operate.

If your late for pickup, they rent your care to someone else. Do not get stuck in the subway! Other customers were waiting around, hoping cars would be returning. This is not an honest business. I will never try to rent from the Inwood Hertz.

The car kept stalling putting my life at risk. I called hertz. They would do nothing unless I drove the car to the airport putting myself into further danger. And they didn’t give me a refund for the dangerous car

First, Kayak should not allow bookings if the rental car company cannot give a car for bookings made the day of. I had to travel 2 hours total to pickup the car only for people at the Dollar Rental to not give me a car bc I had booked 4 hours earlier. They said the wait would be 7 hours to get a rental car. So I had to come back the next day where the ladies at the counter were so rude and unhelpful. Had to wait for my car to be ready for an hour!! And then the cad wasn’t even that clean. Horrible.

I called Priceline to change the date of the rental and was told that it would be fine, but when I got there to pick up the car the rental had not been changed and the dollar employee would not let me rent a car because she said she didn’t have enough to go one way to my destination.
2.0 Mediocre9 Apr 2022
I made the reservation on Kayak and received an email confirming my booking. I then called Dollar customer service to confirm that they had my reservation and a car for me to which they said yes. I explained that I did not want to go to their counter if they had no cars. She said not yo worry. They had a car waiting for me. When I arrived at the Dollar counter, the worker rudely told me they had no cars available. How?!! I just called less than 5 minutes ago and they confirmed my reservation. Her response - that’s what they say but I don’t have any car for you. All the other car rental companies where sold out. Literally left us stranded! What a rubbish company with rubbish service. If I could give them zero stars, I would. Do business with them at your own risk!

They didn’t have the car ready for the time reserved. They told me they had a bigger car but I would have to pay an extra $75 per day. I asked if I could have that car for no extra cost since they didn’t have mine and was told no, if I didn’t want to pay for it I would just have to wait.

I like all Alamo scope, the car, the service, the price, etc everything was super. What I did not like and rated overall experience low: our pickup was ordeed to downtown New York. The confirmed date was 1st Jan. I luckily called Alamo the day before just double check car availability. And they just told me that they are CLOSED the next day (although they see the valid confirmation in the system-but definately I can not pick it up). So asked them to hand over the day before and they were flexible to do it. If I would not call them, then we should seek for a car rental 1st Jan after realizing that the handover pick up point is closed. And Alamo also mentioned that this is a usual desconnect between their and other’s systems, so I suggest to make a better connection between systems.

1/ The parking was packed with cars and as a result it was impossible to reach the counter without going under a fence or going on top of a car. 2/ I was told that I couldn’t get the suv I booked as “it was buried” by cars. Budget shared their location with a regular parking garage and they had to deal with this situation meaning they could do nothing to get the car I booked. This situation was really frustrating as I booked this specific suv to take a PBS journalist upstate for work and wanted a confortable car to travel our 3-hour journey. The Budget agent did not seem to care.

HYA Airport needs to make it clearer to customers that the building CLOSES as of 8PM, making it impossible to return a car after that timeframe.

I booked my Thrifty rental car two months ahead of time. I woke up at 4 AM to commute via public transportation to JFK in order to make my scheduled 6 AM pickup time. The staff were incredibly rude to all customers and stated that they were not going to be renting out any cars until at least 7 AM. By the time 7 AM rolled around, they had allowed many customers ahead of the individuals that arrived at 6 AM. There is no seating outside of the lobby or in the lobby so customers waiting for the staff to be ready were forced to sit on the concrete outside in December. My car reeked of cigarette smoke and had not been vacuumed prior to me being "handed" the keys. In fact, I was told to go wait at the end of the sidewalk for someone to hand me the keys but no one arrived so I went searching myself in the parking lot to find the car. I cross-referenced my receipt and the license plate then waited in the car just in case someone was coming to get me. No one did so I left. My only complaint after driving my dirty and smelly car off the lot was that the passenger's side air controls had gotten so hot at some point prior to me renting it. I could not figure out how to manipulate the air for my husband as the knob had melted off and fallen behind the vent. I extended my rental by a week so I have yet to do the dropoff portion but I am crossing my fingers that it is not as difficult as the pickup.

The pick up and drop off experience were great. The shuttles from the airport were nice and the drivers friendly. The only issue is that after we dropped off the car, and an employee looked at everything with us standing there, the next day they claimed there were scratches. It was impossible for us to have made them. We picked up the car, stopped at a convenience store (only one person went in) stopped to fill up before dropping it off (again, only 1 person left the car) and we dropped it off. We told them this, and they didn't contact us again, so it ended up ok. But, would've been even better without that potential incident.

Pick up and drop off was indeed super easy.I normally don't opt for prepaid fuel but when the question of prepaid fuel came up I said that would be convenient since I didn't know of a gas station nearby (I have never rented a car from JFK Airport before). It turns out there is a gas station one block away from the rental drop off. It could not have been easier to get gas. Seems like the nice guy at the desk could have pointed that out.

Pickup was a nightmare. The shuttle is almost impossible to find from the B15 bus stop. I had to cross several 55mph roads and calling the 800 number was not helpful; it was someone from a call center who had no familiarity with JFK or how to actually get to the off-airport location. The person who helped me at pickup was terrible to deal with, arguing me about my credit card's damage waiver policy, and trying like a snake oil salesman to get me to pay for their insurance when my credit card's was a) free and b) offering better coverage. There was a cigarette smell when I got in the car and I could see where someone had burned the interior passenger seat. The car was not in great condition, with a failed defroster which was difficult for where we were traveling, and at some points outright dangerous. We had to travel on the highway with windows open to avoid the windshield fogging. The car hadn't been serviced recently and it pulled a bit to the right, and the suspension was not great. Didn't actually rent from ACE in the end; some company named Drivo was who we had to rent from using the reservation from Kayak. Two stars are for the ease of drop-off, and the very good price. Not sure now if it was worth it.

I just checked my bank account and I got charged $658.56 for my car rental. It should've been $408.56. Please correct this amount ASAP otherwise I will dispute the charge with Chase.

The staff was super helpful and friendly. One of the best experiences I've had picking up a car in NYC.I wish the tank was full when I picked it up. It's a bit more complex to return a tank at 5/8 than to return one that is full.

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.
