Top tips for renting a car in Queens

  • Jaywalking, especially in residential areas, is very common throughout Queens. If you are in a residential area on a one or two-lane road, then it is even more likely to happen. Make sure you keep your eyes on road and you stay vigilant for any would-be jaywalkers that may pop out in front of you.
  • Planning on picking up a hire car before heading to Queens? If your flight is to JFK International Airport, the hire desks are located on the Arrivals level in each terminal. Flying into Newark Airport instead? In that case, you will find the hire car desks at Stations P2 and P3 on the AirTrain. As for LaGuardia Airport, the hire car center is located just off-site but there are shuttles in front of Terminal A to take passengers to passengers there.
  • Keep your eyes open for taxi drivers and stay out of their way. They are fearless drivers and will cross 3 or even 4 lanes of traffic if necessary. The easiest option is the path of least resistance, so simply let them drive around you and do their thing.
  • Queens, like much of New York City, experiences a daily rush hour. Drivers can typically expect the morning rush hour to pick up at around 7:00 a.m. and run until 9:00 a.m., while the afternoon rush hour starts at around 4:00 p.m. and goes to 7:00 p.m. In general, the Grand Central Parkway during rush hour is one of the roads hit by congestion, so drivers are advised to avoid it if possible.
  • Book your rental car in Queens at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Take a look at our extensive car hire location map to find the best hire cars near you.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Queens?

Small and medium-sized vehicles are the most suited for driving Queens and New York in general. While larger vehicles are an option, drivers will usually find that larger vehicles are a struggle to fit into the limited parking spaces in the more crowded areas of Queens. Even medium-sized cars can be difficult to park at times, but in general they will be okay.

What's the speed limit in Queens?

Visitors to New York City should know that speed limits are set at a base limit of 25 mph unless signage says otherwise. However, drivers in Queens will see a variety of speed limits above that such as 35, 45, and even sometimes 50 mph. In some of the more densely packed residential areas, there are also speed limits as low as 20 mph.

How are gas prices in Queens?

Petrol prices are on average around $2.60 per gallon in Queens. Compared to other cities in the U.S. this is slightly on the more expensive side; however, compared to Seattle’s average price of $3.00 and Salt Lake City’s average of $2.75, it definitely could be worse.

Where are the best places to park in Queens?

Going out to dinner? If readily available, streetside parking nearby will be your best bet. However, drivers are advised not to search too long for streetside parking as it fills up fast. Instead, if you are willing to pay for it, private parking garages are a great option as you can check their availability online in advance.
