KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Atlantic City

  • You’ll find that car hire in Atlantic City is one of the best ways to get around the city, as well as exploring the New Jersey coastline and neighbouring cities. In a hire car you can visit nearby places such as Philadelphia, which is roughly 60 miles away, renowned for its American history, museums, and food culture. Along the coast, you can reach Cape May in under an hour by car, and here you can admire the picturesque beaches and idyllic streets with Victorian architecture. And only 10 miles south of Atlantic City, you can drive to Ocean City where you can enjoy a family-friendly day at the beach.
  • If you arrange car hire in Atlantic City, you can find many different car hire agencies in the city; however, your best bet would be to hire your car at one of the agencies based at Atlantic City Airport (ACY). You can locate the car hire desks at the airport in the Arrivals Hall, but the main offices and car collection points are in the building directly opposite the airport terminal building, just cross the road and follow the signs towards car hire.
  • Once you’ve arranged Atlantic City car hire, be sure to get used to the specific driving regulations of the region, keeping in mind that they may differ slightly from the ones you are familiar with in your home country. In the United States, vehicles travel on the right side of the road. If you’re travelling with children, New Jersey law requires that children under the age of eight must be seated in a booster seat. Also, be aware of the strict drink-driving laws for New Jersey, with the blood-alcohol limit being only 0.08%, so it’s best to avoid drinking altogether.
  • When driving around Atlantic City, it is recommended to steer clear of certain roads that are prone to congestion, especially during the morning rush hour (between 07:00 and 09:30) and the evening rush hour (between 16:00 and 19:00). The Atlantic City Expressway, which connects the city with the rest of New Jersey, is popular with commuters, so is best avoided during rush hour. Other routes you might want to avoid include Pacific Avenue, which runs to the Boardwalk via the city centre; Brigantine Boulevard, which connects with Brigantine town; and Ventnor Avenue, which connects various neighbourhoods.
  • Book your car hire in Atlantic City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Atlantic City are around -34% cheaper than other car types, on average

Cons:

When we dropped off our rental yesterday, there was a new Hertz employee (Mateo) standing at the counter who was very polite, but he said he was new to Hertz and didn’t know how to check in vehicles for returns and all he does is clean the vehicles so we would need to wait for the other woman working to return from Wawa in order to check in our rental car to get a receipt. We sat and waited 30 minutes for the other Hertz employee to return to the Hertz desk at ACY from Wawa. When she finally returned from Wawa, she was rude and unapologetic that no one was at the Hertz desk who could check in or out cars. Mateo was at the Hertz desk but said he was a new Hertz employee and all he was allowed to do was to clean the cars once they were checked in. When the other woman finally returned from Wawa after leaving us and others standing at the Hertz counter in ACY for 30 minutes she finally checked in our vehicle and ended up charging us for an extra hour for the rental which is ridiculous, since the late check in was caused by her leaving her post to go to Wawa for 30 minutes. If she was there at the Hertz counter to check in our vehicle when we arrived then our vehicle would not have been late. When i told her it was ridiculous to leave her post for 30 minutes at Hertz with no backup to check in or out vehicles, she was rude and said it wasn’t her fault. She proceeded to charge us for an extra hour for our rental and told us to take it up with corporate if we didn’t like it. We almost missed our flight because of this woman leaving her post at Hertz in ACY and Hertz not having any other backup person on duty who could check in or out cars. Horrible customer service! This woman was rude and unhelpful! Not the level of politeness, attention to detail, appropriate staffing levels and customer service i would expect from Hertz.

Van was barely cleaned. Old food and debris from previous renter under seats and in back. Trash from previous renter in glove box. My rental was a Ford Trasit or similar. I ended up with a Chevy express. There were no Ford Transits. Not one anywhere and I don’t believe there ever was. I called for weeks before my rental pickup to have one allocated and was called the day before to tell me. I don’t believe that if your customer service associates took the time to actually look at a schedule, I could’ve been notified and I would’ve made other plans. I was transporting elderly people, the Transit’s configuration made it a lot easier for us and comfortable for them.
