KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Bedford

  • Located approximately 15 miles northwest of Boston, Bedford has a rich history dating back to the American Revolution. You won't be hard-pressed to see elegant colonial houses, local libraries that preserve Revolutionary history, and beautiful natural scenery. While you can get around the town using commuter buses and trains, public transportation can be noisy, uncomfortable, and time-consuming. You can avoid all the stress by picking up car rentals in Bedford, and you’ll have the flexibility and convenience of accessing various attractions at your own pace. You can visit Minuteman Commuter Bikeway and Bedford Public Library or shop at the town's famous Chip-In Farm via car.
  • If you’re flying to Bedford, you'll likely land at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), the nearest airport to Bedford at about 23 miles away. The upside to renting a car at the airport is you can conveniently continue your onward journey as soon as you land, while you’ll avoid the costly taxi fees and public-transportation prices. All rental-car companies at the airport have desks in the consolidated Rental Car Center (RCC), which you can access by boarding the blue-and-white shuttle buses at the curb side on the lower level of the airport terminal. Some rental-car providers at the airport are Avis, Hertz, National, Budget, Enterprise, and Easirent.
  • Driving car rentals in Bedford is relatively safe and manageable. Nevertheless, driving around the town has its fair share of challenges, so drivers must exercise caution and be attentive. Like any other town, pedestrians might jaywalk instead of crossing the street at crosswalks. Distracted driving—particularly text messaging—is a huge problem that might cause drivers to veer from their lane. It's critical to be alert when you see pedestrians and other motorists around you.
  • All major cities and towns in Massachusetts have traffic congestion during the peak travel times. Bedford is no exception. The town's roads become heavily congested with traffic during rush hour. In the morning, you can expect bumper-to-bumper traffic from 6 am to 10 am, while the evening rush hour lasts from about 3 pm to 7 pm. We recommend you drive during off-peak hours (11 am to 2:30 pm) and steer clear of major local highways and commuter zones that tend to be heavily traveled.
  • Book your car hire in Bedford at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard car hire in Bedford are around -6% cheaper than other car types, on average

Will never use Avis again. Originally booked to pick up at Logan International and was moved to Bedford over an hour away. They proceeded to tell me they had no cars but were miraculously able to find one at over $300 more than $100 more than I had originall booked. Felt like a scam.Reflects poorly

Renting a vehicle for summer trip out of Boston (or anywhere!) was much more challenging than ever due to (almost post) COVID and the shortage with high gas prices. Everyone I interacted with through National acted as if the knew me and actually cared that we got what we needed (minivan for 6 + luggage), we’re super helpful with delayed pick up due to Hurricane Elsa blowing through, and even made sure we secured a safe Uber to get everyone (+ more luggage!) back to the airport as stress free as possible. What potentially could have been the most challenging part of our trip was a delight!
