KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Edison

  • Car rental in Edison is a great way to add more flexibility to your journey compared to if you travel using another mode of transport. You can drive direct to your location with a hire car, as well as depart at a time of your choosing. For example, you can drive to Plainfield in about 25 minutes. This same journey via bus or train takes approximately an hour and also requires a transfer along the way.
  • Newark Airport (EWR) is one of the nearest terminals to Edison, which makes it a great place to collect your hire car from. Once you’ve landed and passed through Immigration, it won’t take long to locate the car hire branches. For example, you can reach both Thrifty and Dollar via a short shuttle service from outside the Arrivals Hall. Your Edison car hire provider will then take you to your vehicle once you have completed the necessary paperwork and shown a valid ID.
  • Car rental in Edison is a great way to travel around this popular town. In general, drivers here are respectful and are not aggressive. However, if you drive closer to New York, you will find that the roads get far more chaotic. Keep an eye out for unknowing tourists who will cross the road in places that they’re not supposed to. Mopeds and motorcycles are popular modes of transport in this town, so remember to check your mirrors frequently to be aware of your surroundings. It can also snow a lot here, so during the winter, only drive when it is safe to do so.
  • When driving an Edison hire car, you will notice that traffic gets extremely heavy, especially from around 8:00 to 10:00 and about 16:00 to 19:00. This is rush hour, when locals are driving to nearby cities, such as New York, for work. If you don’t like driving on congested roads, it’s best to avoid rush hour. One road that is normally very busy is Highway 287, which travels right through the centre of the town. An alternative road to try is Amboy Avenue, which shouldn’t be as busy.

We did not get the 15 passenger Ford Transit and we did not get that. I called and let them know that was not gonna be able to get there until 4:30pm instead. He said it was ok. Once we arrived they told my brother they did not have a van for us. I walked in 5 minutes later and he was on the phone calling someone to get a van. I went to say something to him and he told me to wait a minute. I began to talk to my husband and rudely interrupted and said he was on the phone. When he got off the phone he told us he had a van but we had to go to another location. Our entire trip was uncomfortable and miserable. We went to be with family and had to crane everything in and no leg room. Our luggage was under our seats and done was hitting me and my sister-in-law in our head. We were sitting in the next to last row. We also called when we were coming back to see if we can drop off at the location we picked the van up from. The told us we had to drop off at there locatio or we would be charged a fee. My entire trip was ruined. I have neck and vack pain. No one enjoyed the trip. This was one of the wirst experiences I had renting a vehicle. My cousin had a similar experience this weekend as well. The vehicle she was supposed to get the didn't have theirs either. I do not recommend this location nor will I rent from them ever again. The customer service was horrible. I feel my money should be refunded for the pair service we received.

Pros:

I was charged around 100 dollars extra since I dropped off around 40 mins off the time from what I picked up the car. This is ridiculous!!! This was the first and the last time I will be renting from here. Staff does not know what they are doing. For anything the answer is the system does it, I don’t know. First of all, it took for ever to rent the car, only one choice, no options to pick from, computer system was slow, etc.

Cons:

To not get charged, basically it’s around 1 day’s rental cost.

Pros:

The one and only employee who was in there was friendly but seemed in a hurry to get out of there. She left before I did with the rental.

Cons:

Just about everything. Place sucked, girl was nice, car was wrong and so tiny and had stains all in the back. The drop off was me throwing a key on a garage floor. No one to speak to about the light that went on when I first came in. (Toyota Yaris) Won’t be back.

I rented a Nissan versa note from 15 N Wood Ave, Edison, NJ 08820. The gas tank was marked full in the contract, but in reality it wasn't. I found out that this when I drove only 71 miles during the one day rental, but ended up pumping 5.5 gallons while return. I informed this to the Agent, but he was blaming me saying that it was my fault that I didn't get check the contract properly. I agree that its my fault, but even after providing evidence that it doesn't 5.5 gallons to drive only 71 miles on a Versa note (usually 30 mpg), he wasn't listening. I feel this was a bad experience to me.

Pros:

Exactly nothing.

Cons:

It was already terrible on the first min I got there. The front desk was by himself and there were about 5 people in the line. When it was finally my turn, he asked me if I could go to ANOTHER LOCATION ON MY OWN to get a car because they DID NOT HAVE ANY MORE VEHICLES. Usually the full insurance coverage is on the 20s or 27s. The guy told me it was 43!!!!! That was outrageous. Didn't give me any other options or any discounts for the inconvivience. NEVER AGAIN!
