Top tips for renting a car in Newark

  • Newark, New Jersey is a short drive to many other states including New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. If you rent a car, you’ll be able to see so much more while on vacation. Spend a day or two in New York City then make a day trip to New Canaan, Connecticut to tour the Glass House or Bethlehem, Pennsylvania for some casino fun.
  • Flying into Newark offers easy access to numerous cities including Trenton, Long Island, Hoboken, and New York City. At Newark Liberty International Airport you’ll find it easy to rent a car. Depending upon what company you use, you can get to the hire desk at Station P2 or P3.
  • During your stay, you’ll find yourself frequenting the New Jersey Turnpike to get to numerous destinations including Hackensack and Ridgefield Park. Nevertheless, the turnpike can get really busy. If traveling north on the turnpike, consider taking the I-295 instead. It will be less hectic and lets you avoid the tolls, plus you can also get back on the turnpike from here if needed.
  • Traffic in Newark can be quite heavy during the daily commute. Newark’s rush hour is most busy from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. During this time the NJ Turnpike and Garden State Parkway become especially congested. Before you leave the hotel you should listen to the traffic report to learn about accidents or construction projects. Alternative routes are also suggested.
  • Book your rental car in Newark at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
