Pros:Nothing about the experience was good.Cons:Pick up of the car was a nightmare. Spent over an hour in line and took a total of two hours to complete the rental. Really messed up our day plans and even missed a reservation. They didn't honor the prices that were online and we had to pay more for the rental insurance in the office. The EZ Pass wasn't activated and they didn't bother to tell us. The whole experience was unpleasant.Reviewed 10 Sep 2020

Top tips for hiring a car from Hertz in Jersey City

  • Visitors looking to book Hertz car rentals in Jersey City, New Jersey, will want to note the area’s traffic conditions. Routes such as the New Jersey Turnpike, Interstate 78, and Routes 1 and 9 experience heavy traffic flows at times, particularly during weekday mornings between 6 am and 9 am and weekday evenings between 7 pm and 9 pm. The same goes for the downtown area, as well as near popular destinations like the waterfront and Exchange Place. Streets around these areas also tend to experience greater congestion during the weekend.
  • Visitors to Jersey City will find that the area is well-connected to New York City via the Liberty Landing Ferry. This ferry runs several times a day and is a budget-friendly and efficient way to cross the Hudson and explore all that the Big Apple has to offer. Note that while Enterprise does allow their rental vehicles to be taken on ferries, they ask that you give advance notice that you intend to do so, and you may need to purchase additional insurance coverage.
  • Municipal parking garages are scattered throughout Jersey City, providing secure and convenient options for visitors who plan to rent a vehicle during their stay. Many PATH stations, like Grove Street Station and Newport Station, have nearby parking facilities. This is particularly advantageous for visitors who wish to park and then commute to New York City. NJ Transit, offering train and bus services, has stations in Jersey City with adjacent parking lots or garages, such as Hoboken Terminal and Exchange Place Station. Street parking is also widely available, but visitors should be aware of local regulations, including metered parking and time limits. Private parking facilities, operated by independent businesses, provide additional options.
  • Those looking to rent a vehicle through Hertz for their visit to Jersey City will be pleased to know that the agency generally permits its rental cars to be taken on ferries that lead to and from New York, but there are specific guidelines and restrictions that renters must adhere to. These policies can vary depending on the location and the specific Hertz branch. Renters will want to inform a Hertz agent of their intention to take the car on a ferry at the time of pickup. Note that renters should also be aware that some ferry routes may have restrictions on the type or size of vehicles allowed on board.
