KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Hershey

  • Hershey is home to numerous attractions, including Hersheypark, Hershey's Chocolate World, and the Hershey Gardens. With car rentals in Hershey, you can easily access these sites and make the most of your time. You can plan day trips to nearby cities like Harrisburg, Lancaster, and Gettysburg without being constrained by public transportation schedules. The surrounding region has wineries and breweries you can explore at your own pace with a Hershey car rental. All of this travel is made much easier by getting a car rental in Hershey instead of expensive taxis or ride-share vehicles or relying on public transportation.
  • When you want to get Hershey car rentals at an airport, one choice in this area is Harrisburg International Airport (MDT). When you rent here, you will find about seven major brands operating here, and they all have their counters in the baggage claim area and the cars right outside. Harrisburg isn't your only option though. You can also fly into is Lancaster Airport (LNS), where three large rental brands offer service. This smaller airport also provides the convenience of rental counters in the terminal building and cars just outside.
  • While driving laws in Hershey generally follow state regulations, visitors should know some unique aspects and laws before getting behind the wheel of car rentals in Hershey. In Pennsylvania, making a left turn on red from a two-way street onto another two-way street is illegal. Pennsylvania law prohibits drivers from using handheld cell phones while driving. This includes texting, emailing, and using social media. Roundabouts are becoming more common in many areas, including Hershey. When entering a roundabout, vehicles already in the roundabout have the right of way. In some cases, right turns on red are not allowed, even after coming to a complete stop. Be sure to look for signs that indicate this restriction.
  • Weekday mornings, usually from around 7:00 am to 9:00 am, might have more traffic on roads like Hersheypark Drive, Route 39, and Route 422. This same congestion can occur on weekday afternoons between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm During the peak tourist season, especially when Hersheypark and other attractions are open, you might encounter increased traffic around the entrances to these attractions. Events at the Giant Center and other entertainment venues in Hershey can lead to traffic congestion in the surrounding areas.

I arrived after a full day of flying across country and was exhausted. The woman handling my rental had already chosen a car which would not have been my preference. I arrived at the counter by wheelchair and explained that I needed a car with a more upright seat. She disregarded my comments and said to check the car and come back to the counter if I wanted to switch. At this point, handling my bags and walking with a crutch, this was an unrealistic expectation on her part. I managed to use the car, but found it painful getting in and out of it.

Pros:

Price was good and the car was nice and clean.

Cons:

When I dropped off at JFK Airport, I was in dire need of a restroom after driving across New York and getting stuck in traffic. The woman at the desk didn’t want to give the code to use the restroom. I guess that will teach me not to have White Privilege.

Cons:

The pickup location was unable to get information on other locations one way vehicle selection. I had a busy day and was trying to find a vehicle in a location closer to my work. Drop off location was under staffed and some what unprofessional looking. The vehicle had scratching, some plastic missing from the body, and dirt around the passage door on the interior (making me question the disinfectant sticker).

Booked my car reservation several days ahead of my arrival.. upon my o time arrival I was told they had no cars available. The gentleman working the counter explained that after 4 hours they cancel reservations because most people reserve a car and don’t show up. Budget left me and my you son stranded in Harrisburg, PA. Worst customer service I have received from a rental company. I will never use Budget rental, and I suggest to whomever reads this, to seek alternate rental providers.

I liked being able to pick up and return car at airport. Counter could use more staff. Car was ready when I arrived and the return went very quickly.

Cons:

I thought the option for refueling would mean you would pay for what you used. It looks like I paid for a full tank of gas which I would not have used. It is a great option but they should be fair and charge based on what you actually use.
