KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Gloucester

  • Renting a car from one of the top car rentals in Gloucester is smart if you want to do an extensive tour of the city. With a rental car, you can travel directly and comfortably from one location to another whenever you like. With a car rental, you'll also be able to easily check out the fun attractions in nearby towns like Ipswich, Seabrook, Saugus, Lynnfield, and Beverly, since they're all short drives away.
  • The nearest major airport serving Gloucester is Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), 25 miles from the Gloucester town center. At this airport, you can easily rent a car from any of the numerous companies dealing Gloucester car rentals, including Enterprise, Hertz, Avis, Dollar, Alamo, Payless, National, and Budget. The counters for these agencies are in the Rental Car Center, which is connected to the terminals via blue and white shuttle buses. You’ll board the buses on the lower levels of the terminals. It’s recommended to reserve a car in advance to ensure availability and enjoy good rates.
  • Driving in Gloucester is a smooth experience, as roads are in good condition and most drivers adhere to traffic laws. Despite these hopeful facts, it’s important to observe basic safety measures on the road, like maintaining a safe distance from other vehicles. There are always one or two drivers who resort to aggressive behavior. You should also be extra careful on narrow roads with sharp bends. Look out for passengers and cyclists, and make way for them when necessary, as some may cross the road absent-mindedly.
  • Generally, Gloucester doesn’t experience extreme traffic congestion because it isn’t highly populated. However, the city usually experiences slow-moving traffic from time to time. In the morning, traffic picks up from 7 am to 9 am, while in the afternoon, traffic is heavier from 5 pm to 7 pm. Even though Gloucester's traffic is manageable, it’s wise to plan your trip ahead and allow extra road time during peak hours.
  • Book your car hire in Gloucester at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Gloucester are around 61% more expensive than other car types, on average

Pros:

The car was clean, new, and the reps at the location were friendly and helpful. Answered all my questions.

Cons:

At my initial pick-up the branch was empty, doors unlocked, no one inside, no cars in the lot. Another customer was there for a similar pick-up time. When I went inside the branch the alarm went off and the police showed up. Phone Customer Service was eventually able to schedule me for a pick-up the next day, and thankfully I didn't need the car until then, but it did waste a few hours of my day and cause a lot of frustration. The pick-up on the following day was much smoother, the reps were quick and friendly. Probably just a freak occurrence, but still annoying. Still have no idea why no one was at the first branch at the original pick-up time.

Pros:

The staff was very organized, helpful, and efficient. Daniel Joyner (Danvers, MA) was a pleasure to work with. He had the van ready to go when I arrived. We did a quick review of the vehicle and he showed me how all controls worked. I really liked the electronic pad used to initial and sign the agreement - very easy & efficient.

Cons:

I would have liked the gas tank to be full when I picked up the van. I do not like picking up a vehicle with the tank half empty.... When I am racing to my destination on a long drive, having to stop to get gas is a dissatisfier.

Pros:

The car was very good. Powerful and new.

Cons:

It didn't feel squeaky clean, like alot of other rental cars have. It didn't smell, but had a warm dankness, as though it had been sitting in a hot location not totally clean inside.
