  • If you visit New York, you can do very little without Bay Shore car rentals since the city boasts several iconic landmarks.

Besides, commuter trains and buses operate on fixed schedules. With car rentals in Bay Shore, you can visit several places, including Gardiner County Park, Sagtikos Manor, Bay Shore Historical Society, Great South Bay Brewery, and Islip Arts Council Gallery.
  • Islip Long Island Airport (ISP) is the nearest airport to Bay Shore, about 12 miles from the city center. However, John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), about 34 miles away, also offers convenience. Car rental desks in JFK are at the arrivals level of all terminals.

Got into rental car and a terrible smell of cigarett, opened windows and drove away only to return it and asked for another vehicle. Was given another and used it for the whole time with no problems and will continue to book with them. The agent was very apoligetic and called them for a copy of changed vehicle, which they sent to my email. I had previously booked with this agent and had no problems with the Kia Forte, which eventually purchased when returned from my trip. Your pricing for the rental was so much lower than through other websites that I have booked on and also plan to continue through Kayak.

Car was very clean!! However, Front desk gentleman was not cordial, did not introduce himself nor welcomed me He went straight to asking me "license and credit card" The rear tire was low on air. I did receive a 10% off. I waited for him, and he didn't even apologize for the delay.

Pros:

Staff was friendly & helpful. Agent didn't have the exact car I reserved but gave a modest upgrade for same price. His manager tried to step in & upgrade me on some "don't you want to be a baller in that Infiniti" nonsense, but the agent more or less ignored him and did not pressure me at all.

Cons:

Get the manager to not be so obvious about trying to persuade people to upgrade, especially when you haven't interacted with a customer to read his energy. Otherwise, excellent experience.

The car was not ready at the time I requested it. I needed to wait for the interior to be cleaned then was asked to go to the car wash myself and get the car washed. Setting my family and I back behind schedule, once we were able to get on the road the check engine light came on and remained on the entirety of our trip. This experience was less than acceptable.

I liked the price.

Cons:

Did not like that I was told location was the Islip airport, to later find the location was 10 minutes from the airport and there was NO shuttle from the airport. Had to cancel the reservation and get a more "pricey" one from Budget location at the airport.

The price of renting the car from the hotel instead of the airport was much cheaper. Only thing was I had to call a number when I got to the hotel bc no agent was waiting for me. Was very accommodating when she arrived first car did not have power seats and I couldn’t see over steering wheel so she switched cars to a Camry which did and was a great car. Also said I could bring back to airport and extended the return time.
