KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Danbury

  • Car hire in Danbury gives you the convenience and flexibility to explore the city’s stunning natural features and hidden gems in nearby destinations. Unlike public transportation, which often gets crowdy, noisy and uncomfortable, a hire car guarantees comfort and reaching your destinations on time and without hassle. It allows you to drive to various places of your interest. Furthermore, car hire in Danbury is a cheap way to move around the city, especially if you plan an extended stay. You can drive to Tarrywile Park, Danbury Museum and Historical Society, Danbury Railway Museum or Bear Mountain Reservation.
  • The benefit of booking car hire in Danbury from the airport is that you leap into adventure as soon as you land. If you are flying into Danbury, you will likely land at Westchester County Airport (HPN), roughly 35 miles from the city centre. With many car hire agencies operating on-site desks at the airport, getting your vehicle should be a fun experience. The concierge desks are at the main arrivals hall of the main terminal. Some agencies to expect include Thrifty, Alamo, National, Hertz, Budget, Nationa, and Avis.
  • Travelling via car hire in Danbury is generally safe and manageable, thanks to well-established roads and patient drivers. However, driving in Danbury is not devoid of challenges, as other road users require your attention. For instance, jaywalking is still common in the city, as pedestrians overlooking crossings is typical. As a bicycle-friendly city, encountering many cyclists on the city streets is unsurprising. However, they may lose track of their lane. Drive carefully when you sight them to avoid hitting them.
  • Significant cities in Connecticut experience considerable traffic congestion during peak travel times, and Danbury is no exception. Despite boasting well-established roads, Danbury experiences typical road congestion during rush hours. Usually, rush hours run from 07:00 to 09:00 and from 16:00 to 18:00. Endeavour to stay off busy city roads and major highways during rush hours to escape traffic snarl-ups. Also, avoid commuter zones, as they are brimming with vehicles and foot traffic.
  • Book your car hire in Danbury at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Danbury are around 34% cheaper than other car types, on average

When I called--morning of the booking--to confirm their opening time (it was the day after Christmas), I was told that because I had made the booking with "a third-party entity" and "while [they] were closed," the car I had confirmed online was not available at the location I had booked. So, I had to wait for them to find the vehicle I needed and then had to be driven from one of their locations to another to pick up that vehicle. Truth be told, this was not a crisis, and while it did make my family late for the event we were attending, everything was okay. It was just frustrated to be told, essentially, that the delays were my fault because of when and how I had booked the rental. If there was potential for delays because of the when and how, it would have been good to get--at least--a notice of potential issues.

Pros:

Originally I book an SUV because I needed the space but found out that type of vehicle doesn’t come with unlimited miles so I had to change it to a compact. But when I got there the lady found us a sedan that had just been turned in. Fortunately for us the sedan worked better. Great experience

Cons:

Put unlimited miles on suvs.

Pros:

Staff was friendly. No line. I appreciate that the staff didn't try to upsell me when I arrived. Return was easy too.

Cons:

Got in to Danbury a bit late on the bus. Rental closed at 4, which is a bit early. Would have liked if staff could have waited 15-20 minutes for me to show up after I let them know. Also, when calling, if they were busy on the phone, I would automatically get redirected to the national service.

Pros:

The cars are relatively new, staff is usually nice and friendly, the prices are competative.

Cons:

There is no parking on site so if you don't have anybody to drop you off and pick you up after rental it may turn out to a very challenging situation. The closest publick parking is about 5 min away and normally they offer you a lift but when I dropped the car after my last rental they just opened and it was no driver available. So walking for 30 min carrying the bags wasn't the most pleasant experience.

I had reserved a small car and all that was available was a pickup truck! Also, the remote key fob battery was nearly dead making unlocking the doors and even starting the vehicle a challenge - it took several tries before it was registered. I was too nervous on my trip to stop at a rest stop for fear I wouldn’t be able to continue!

Pros:

Drop off easy. It was not open. Pick up the staff were poor. I rented a SUV, they tried to give me a minivan. When I told the clerk this he ask me in a rude manner why I needed an suv. He then switched my to an suv gave me the keys and told me the car was outside to the right. 5 mins later I came back in and informed him that there were no vehicles fitting his description to the right. I informed him that there was a vehicle fitting that description at the left of the building.. at which he said then that's the one. This is the first time that I have rented a car (with the exception of at an airport) where a staff member did not walk me to the car did a basic inspection.

Cons:

Greet the customer like you would like to be greeted, show the client the to the vehicle and give a brief tutorial of some basic functions - like starting the car, adjusting the seat, the mirrors, - just some basic safety functions. It shows you care and perhaps the next time the client rents a car she/he may remember the professionalism at this dealer and price point would not be the only consideration in renting a car.
