KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Centereach

  • There are several advantages to renting a car in Centereach, NY. First, public transportation is limited in the area, so renting a car gives you the freedom and flexibility to explore the city and beyond at your own pace. You won't have to depend on buses or trains, which can be inconvenient and may not take you directly to your desired destination. For example, there are several beautiful beaches in the area, including Lake Ronkonkoma and Smith Point County Park. If you rent a car, you can easily visit these beaches and enjoy a day of swimming, sunbathing, and beach activities.
  • New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is the gateway to many cities, including Centereach. The car-rental offices at the airport are located at the Federal Circle Station, which is accessible from the main terminals via the AirTrain. The AirTrain is a 24-hour service that connects all the airport terminals to the rental-car station. To get to the rental-car station, follow the "AirTrain" signs and take the AirTrain to Federal Circle Station. From there, you can use the escalators or the elevator to go down to the rental-car station.
  • When you’re driving cheap car rentals in Centereach, there are a few things you should keep in mind. The good news is that locals tend to be fairly respectful of the driving laws. Speed limits are generally followed, and there’s a relatively low incidence of aggressive driving. That being said, it's important to stay vigilant for any unexpected actions by other drivers, as distracted driving can be a problem in any city. There are some bicycle lanes in Centereach, but these are not particularly extensive, so it's important to keep an eye out for cyclists on the road.
  • Centereach experiences traffic congestion during rush hour. Rush-hour times in Centereach typically occur on weekdays from 7 am to 10 am and from 4 pm to 7 pm. During these times, traffic can be heavy, and it might take you longer to get to your destination using Centereach rental cars. Some of the roads that are most affected during rush hour are Highway 25, Nicolls Road, Hawkins Road, and NY-347 (Nesconset Highway).
  • Book your car hire in Centereach at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

There was no attendant so we had to go into terminal. It's a small airport and it wasn't difficult to du that. Just would have been faster with an attendant on hand.

Pros:

The staff was very friendly, explained the conditions thoroughly and treated me well. They offered to switch me into a larger car if I were to come back the next day which was appreciated. The car was clean and it was easy to find.

Cons:

The car I got was one size smaller then what I had reserved, which is significant since I'm pretty tall. They offered to switch me into a larger car if I came back the next day, but since I was only using the car for two days it was not worth it. I gave one day's notice, which I'm sure impacted the selection, but a larger car should not have been advertised if that were the situation.

Horrible! I never ended up using them because the care I booked was never available at that site or any site on Long Island. I was left stranded hours before I had to take my son to college. Also when I called to let them know I was on my way to pick up the vehicle I was placed on hold for over 45 minutes. I am glad called and waited on the line because things would’ve been much worse had I hang up. Horrible service to put it mildly.

The experience with Hertz was great! The staff helped us get a bigger vehicle when we showed up and even arranged for us to have the vehicle for an extra day. Would recommend working with the folks at Hertz on Middle Country Rd.

Vehicle was dirty -- I had to vacuum and clean the interior before I could use it. Additionally, I had rented a Nissan Pathfinder only to be provided with a Ford Expedition. The Expedition is larger -- as big as a truck. Never again will I use Avis.

Pros:

Due to my spontaneous schedule, they were kind enough to allow me to keep the car for a short period past my return time, at no fee. I assume this was because it was not needed for another rental but non-the-less much appreciated.

Horrible and worst customer service We got snowed in (2ft) the night before the drop-off at 2pm in NY (1/28/22). Long Island declared an emergency and none of the street roads were plowed before the end of snow blizzard (7pm). I called the office 3 times in the morning/noon and no-one picked up (the office was closed). I called the budget center to let them know of the situation. First agent acknowledged the situation, and forwarded me to another agent that handles these types of situations. That agent’s phone reception was horrible, she tried to change headset? and I still could barely hear her and then she disconnected me. I called again, a different agent picked up and said that I will have to pay the fees associated with it and told me that there isn’t a department that handles this despite telling him I was with another agent few mins ago. He put me on hold and hung up. I called 3rd time and a different agent (brandon?) put me on hold and told me he cant do anything. I asked him to put me on with his supervisor and he forwarded immediately and the phone rang until it hung up automatically. All these agents don’t care about providing the service and help they are getting paid to do so. Budget wasted my time and money
