KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Braintree

  • People considering car rentals in Braintree can't go wrong. Braintree is surrounded by suburbs beyond where the subway ends, such as Medford, Watertown, Newton, and Dorchester. Braintree car rentals also make it possible to explore fascinating nearby cities and towns in Massachusetts, such as Salem, Plymouth, and Cape Cod. Whether you are in Braintree for business or pleasure, car rentals in Braintree give people the freedom to get to appointments or explore the city and state according to their own schedule.
  • The Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) is located less than 15 miles north of Braintree, making it an ideal location for renting a car, whether you’ve just landed at BOS or whether you are accessing the Rental Car Center at BOS from Braintree. If you have just landed at BOS, go to the arrivals curb of your terminal where you can catch a complimentary blue and white shuttle bus to the RCC approximately every 5 to 6 minutes. If you are driving to the RCC, it is easily accessible from Braintree off the I-90. The RCC is housed in a four-story parking garage, giving you many conveniently accessible options.
  • Because Braintree is just outside Boston, drivers tend to be a bit more aggressive than elsewhere in the country. So, when you need to merge onto a road or highway or when you are trying to grab a parking spot, be confident, but not reckless. Furthermore, Braintree and the surrounding areas have many toll roads and bridges, some of which accept E-ZPass as the only means of payment. For this reason, it is worth considering adding a Toll Pay option to your car rental agreement.
  • People looking to secure car rentals in Braintree need to be aware of seasonal traffic problems virtually throughout the year. In winter, is important to beware of snowy and icy weather and to make sure that your car has working windshield wipers and a snow brush and ice scraper before you leave the lot. As the weather warms up, traffic gets particularly congested starting on Thursdays as people head out of town toward Cape Cod and New Hampshire. Throughout the year, be aware of congested event traffic caused by nearby Gillette Stadium, which hosts concerts, other events, and the New England Patriots when they play their home games.
  • Book your car hire in Braintree at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Braintree are around 115% more expensive than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Braintree?

    People considering car rentals in Braintree should usually focus on securing a smaller or even compact car. Because the suburb of Braintree is densely populated and because you might be driving into the even more densely populated city of Boston, a smaller car that can negotiate in and out of traffic and fit in tighter parking spaces is more convenient. However, if you are renting a car in the winter, you might feel safer in a larger car with more power, such as a vehicle with four-wheel drive. If you will be heading to the beach in the summer, you might want a larger sedan to fit more people or equipment for outdoor adventures in the car.

  • What's the speed limit in Braintree?

    In Braintree, the speed limit for thickly settled roads is 25 mph, which is lower than 30 mph, which is the standard speed limit for most thickly settled roads in Massachusetts. The speed limit on the nearby Interstate 93 is 70 mph. The speed limit on nearby Interstate 95 is 55 mph and is usually reduced at transition ramps to 45 mph or 50 mph. North of Boston, the I-95 has a speed limit of 65 mph.

  • Where are the best places to park in Braintree?

    In Braintree, most businesses, such as restaurants, shops, and malls, have parking lots where you can park for free, usually for 2 hours. Parking at the train station in Braintree, however, requires a small fee. There is also free parking available on the street. However, you are not allowed to park within 20 feet of an intersection. Braintree has instituted daylighting, which is the physical restriction that prohibits cars from parking at corners to increase visibility and reduce accidents, especially with pedestrians and bicyclists.

Pros:

Staff at pickup (in MA) and drop off (in NC) were outstanding. The vehicle was comfortable and easy to manage. It was also much better on gas than I anticipated.

Cons:

The vehicle was very well maintained. However, the console had not been wiped down. It was dusty and the side console was sticky. Still, this was minor and did not impact the overall excellent experience.

They charge a lot of money as a penalty for returning the vehicle to different places.

Pros:

Enterprise is consistently great on service, easy rental experience, and competitively priced.

Cons:

My compact / economy car (35K miles) had a smoker previously and although the car was cleaned, when the car was parked in the sun, the smoke odors came through. There were burn marks on the seats. I hope Enterprise will not re-rent smoking cars as this is really unpleasant but also a safety hazard.

The guy behind the desk was very good at managing the customers. Especially the difficult ones who were ahead of me in line. When I booked the car on the Kayak app it gave me an option to purchase insurance. But it did not show up on my reservation at the Hertz office when picking up the car. It would be easier if the 3rd party insurance policy would be attached to the reservation somehow so that Hertz knows about it.

The car wasn't ready for pickup on time. RX drugs from a previous rental had been left in the glove compartment. The car had a strange odor, like someone had smoked in it and they tried to cover up the smell.
