KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Fairfield

  • There are a lot of places you can visit in Fairfield and renting a car from car rentals in Fairfield gives you the flexibility to go to all areas including the ones which are farther from the center. You can drive to Lake Mohegan Recreation Area which is a pet-friendly area, where you can go hiking if you prefer.  If you are looking to tan at the beach, you can drive to the Jenning, Sasco or the Penfield Beach all located in Fairfield. Climbers can drive to Rock Climb Fairfield found in the Mill Plain Building.
  • Your flexibility when traveling to various locations in the city is increased by reserving the cheap car rentals in Fairfield. To rent a car from one of the Fairfield car rentals, you must be at least 25 years old. The minimum age requirement for customers looking to rent a luxury car is higher at several city car rental firms. On the other hand, certain rental car agencies permit customers between the ages of 21 and 24 to rent a vehicle, but they must pay an underage cost. You must bring a major credit or debit card and a current driver's license when picking up your car. The license and the card must both be in your name.
  • Travelers who fly to Fairfield mostly arrive at Westchester County Airport which is 40min away from Fairfield. You can conveniently find car rentals in Fairfield at the airport on arrival with the car rental agencies located near the main terminal. Fairfield car rentals that you will find at the airport are Alamo, Budget, Avis, Hertz, National and Enterprise. Since car rentals in Fairfield are in the airport, travelers have the convenience of driving from the airport with a car thus saving time.
  • You must be aware of the roads in Fairfield where you will have to pay tolls when operating a rental car. Using these toll roads has the benefit of allowing you to avoid the high traffic that is frequent on most roads, especially in the morning and evening. Interstate 895 (I-895) and Interstate 695 (I-695) are a couple of the well-traveled toll routes in Fairfield. You will need to use electronic payment for the road, with the exception of a small number of toll booths on these routes that accept cash payments.
  • As you drive in Fairfield it is best to maintain the speed limits because of the cyclists and pedestrians crossing the street. Some roads have potholes making it difficult for new drivers who are not familiar with these routes, thus keeping distance and driving in at a slow speed is recommended.
  • You must follow Fairfield's seat regulations if your child is riding shotgun in your rental car. These regulations state that any youngster under the age of five or under 40 pounds must always travel in an authorized restraint system. You can use an infant seat, a child car seat, or a booster seat, depending on the specific age of your child. These gadgets are easily accessible from any of the cheap car rentals in Fairfield. However, keep in mind that each of these unique child facilities will cost extra.
  • The most difficult aspect of driving in the Fairfield area is the narrow roads. Because the roads are narrow, they cannot accommodate many cars at once. Consequently, traffic jams are common during the early morning hours of 7:00 am to 9:00 am, and late afternoon hours of 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm as people leave their homes to work and schools in the morning and back in the evening.
  • Book your car hire in Fairfield at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Fairfield are around -65% cheaper than other car types, on average

Business and residential areas have a speed limit of 25 mph to ensure that drivers maintain their focus on the road signs within these areas. A 5 mph speed limit is established at intersections, alleys, and rail-road crossings, because visibility is very limited.

Pros:

I have been in Napa Valley for 6 months and have rented cars from Enterprise 6 different occasions. Sami was always pleasant and professional. That is a very busy car rental office and every time I was there it was busy and Sami and her Staff where always happy and eager to accommodate. YOU can always tell when a location has a good leader by the way the Staff treats their guests and their attitude. I have told all the associates and concierge to use and refer Enterprise Rent a Car on Soscol Road in Napa Valley. Love and will miss you Sami!!! Mary Beth Gualtieri

Cons:

When offering driver protection, you think you are buying it from enterprise. But you are actually buying it on kayaks website separate from the rental car purchase. This is misleading because you think you are buying it from Enterprise when you are not. This is misleading at best and deceptive at worst. The CFPB should examine this practice. Note, this is not enterprise’s fault, this is kayaks poor customer experience.

Pros:

I loved everything about our rental except that the previous renter may have been a smoker that the interior smelled of cigarettes. When I vacuumed the car before returning, I even found a marlboro. Other than that, the car ran perfectly for our trip to Tahoe and saved so much gas that we didn't have to pump once except to refill for the return to Avis. There were absolutely no problems and would rent from here again.

Cons:

The cigarette smell of the interior.

Cons:

The agent called to tell me they wouldn't have the mini van we reserved online. She told me she hadn't seen a van in 3 weeks and there was another reservation that would trump mine. I had to make a reservation with another company that cost me $100 more. Then Avis called the next day to say that they did have a van, but it wouldn't be there in time for my reservation. I don't understand why there seems to be no communication between the website and the actual company, or why there is no communication between the employees at Avis. I'm very unhappy that I had to pay so much more money because the reservation was not honored.

This location gave a dented, dirty car. Lots of candy, half drunken tea bottle and paper bowl with food in it laying on floor in backseat. Very rude customer service telling me I was lucky they were open when I showed up at 3:05 for a 3:00 reservation. Yelled at me as I was taking pictures of vehicles condition. Do not rent from them if you can help it.
