Great car.Pick-up location was disorganized. Drop-off closed 1hr sooner than listed online. Incorrectly charged several additional fees.

4.4 OkaySep 23 2020
Nothing really.Pickup and drop off sucked. There was only one agent at the counter. There were like 10-12 people in the line. I had to wait for almost 2 and half hours to pickup the vehicle. The agent was a little slow. Avis could put one more person at the counter. Even the car drop off took over 30 mins. To drop off the vehicle I was in line for over 30 mins.i think Avis could afford to out one more agent to work at the counter.

The staff was awful. They did not give me any instructions when I picked up the car or inform me I needed to bring the parking ticket when dropping off the car or that I needed to record the mileage. They also told me there would be an ezpass and there was no ezpass in the car. Then it took one entire hour waiting in line at the Avis desk to return the car.Everything could have been better. This is the worst rental experience I have ever had.

Kendall and the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful. I was on the road in no time and my car was clean and ran perfectly!

Staff were very friendlyIt was a busy Saturday with at least ten people in line. There was only one staff. The wait was too long - there should have been more staff.
5.6 OkaySep 23 2019
The car itself was fine, although it wasn’t super clean — it was dusty and had bird poop on it as we checked it out of the parking lot. So much so that we thought we may have someone’s personal vehicle by accident rather than a rental.The difficult part about the pickup and drop-off was that the Avis desk was inside the mall and manned by a single customer service rep, who seemed overwhelmed and slow to process everyone lining up. Checkout took 40 mins and returning took an hour. The parking area was poorly marked and confusing.

Staff unhelpful. Called the night before rental to tell me no cars were available and that I should rent elsewhere

Both pick up and drop off were easy. Had booked several months ahead of time, thank goodness as rates have skyrocketed since then. Car was new and well maintained. No issues at all.Nothing.

My reservation was for 3pm. I arrived a little after 3 and the rental location was closed. Nowhere on the app or in the reservation process was it made clear that the location closed at 3. I tried to make another reservation somewhere, but the Kayak app showed no cars available anywhere. Literally none. Very, very disappointed in the whole experience. And I’d like a refund of the $22 pre-paid in insurance for a car I never got.

Easy dropoff, good price and great carCar wasn’t fully cleaned, pickup staff wasn’t very virtuous and nobody explained the functionality of the car (or was even available to ask questions)
2.0 MediocreDec 28 2020
The staff was not wearing masks, were surly and belligerent.There was a lack of professionalism all around. The stains on the shirt and the open contempt made me uncomfortable.

NothingThe staff could have cared even a little. Took 2 hours for them to give me the car, I had to stand in the freezing cold while I waited and the people working there could not have been more rude, apathetic or lazy.

Good price unlimited miles. East pick up drop off service from Staff was awesomeWindshield whipper fluid, any would be nice. I drove through a winter storm through the Catskills for 20 miles to get to a gas station to clean my windshield and buy fluid. Scariest moment I’ve had driving, like low fluid I get. This was bone dry note to sell probably the economy wasn’t the best choice to rent for the snow

3.6 MediocreSep 10 2020
Nothing about the experience was good.Pick up of the car was a nightmare. Spent over an hour in line and took a total of two hours to complete the rental. Really messed up our day plans and even missed a reservation. They didn't honor the prices that were online and we had to pay more for the rental insurance in the office. The EZ Pass wasn't activated and they didn't bother to tell us. The whole experience was unpleasant.
2.0 MediocreSep 4 2020
They didn’t have a car for me at all nor did they help me to find another option.Not taking my reservation in the first place. Assistance finding another reservation and price matching the original booking at another local Hertz.

Easy pick up and drop offCar wasn't cleaned, tires had low pressure, car didn't come with a full tank of gas, Bluetooth wasn't working properly all the time.
2.0 MediocreApr 24 2019
I didn’t like anything because I never received any service or a vehicle. I was there on time maybe even 30 min before pick up but never got a vehicle I was told to wait atleast one hour and added to the wait list. So I went to eat by the time I got back they were closed for the day.Atleast notified the customer of anything.

They charged me $200 for unknown reason. Still in the process of getting my money back.

Couldn't give me a car at the time of my reservationI rented a car to go to my best friend's bridal fitting. When I went to pick up the car, I was told there were none available and I would have to wait at least an hour an a half. The on-site manager was completely unsympathetic. When I asked why there were a number of cars in the lot available, he said he couldn't give me any of those because they were all reserved (as my car was also supposed to be). He gave me the phone number for another manager, who was better, but the only solution was for me to drive to another Hertz location 20 minutes away to pick up a car. By the time I finally got a car, it was an hour and 20 minutes after my reservation time and I was 20 minutes further away from where I need to go, causing me to miss the appointment. I was also promised compensation for all of the issues, but have yet to receive anything and paid full price for my reservation. The car itself was also very dirty inside when I got it.

The woman who helped me both rent and return the car was incredibly nice and easy-going, and made the process painless.My only complaint is that the drop-off was a little confusing. The entrance to the garage only listed "Parking," and the sign for Enterprise wasn't visible until you'd pulled into the parking garage.

Good and BadThey had a wonderful young lady drive me to the metro after my rental. She was pleasant and professional. The car was ok.I arrived later than expected and even though I had confirmed my reservation and they had given my car to someone else. The man at the desk was very dismissive of me. I found him quite rude. They then had to drive me 20min away to another location to pick up another vehicle. The car smelled so strong of air freshener that it made me nauseous.

PerfectionThis was a great experience from top to bottom and I would undoubtedly rent from them again. They took such great care of us and were even kind enough to offer a free upgrade!!! Really made our weekend an enjoyable time!

Great serviceA small super friendly business in the middle of Jersey City. I needed to rent a car on short notice, they had what I wanted at a competitive price I dodn't have to go out to the airport to get a car - they were near by and it could not have been better
5.6 OkayNov 6 2016
Just okayThey call you the day before to collect info to speed up your check out process.The car wasn't clean when I picked it up and it seemed that it hadn't been maintained. Windshield wipers obviously needed to be replaced.
4.0 OkayOct 4 2016
The experience of selling insurance was confusing. We purchased it only to find out later that it was unnecessary. We already had the coverage through my credit card. a better explanation of the coverage would be ideal. The car itself was terrible. zero pickup and it was dirty. (Had someone else's takeout food under the seat.)the staff was nice
9.6 ExcellentOct 1 2016
Great experience with value for moneyWe were blocked from the Hoboken accident and couldn't get to the original spot to get our car but then we found another one to pick up with a upgraded model. Very nice assistance and nice driving experience with a new car at about 3000 miles ride history.

1 Employee on Holiday Travel Week?The car was great - clean, ran well, and I even had to call Support because I locked the keys inside and they were extremely helpful finding someone’s to help me.Only one employee was scheduled on the Tuesday before a busy holiday for traveling and he was expected to manage both Avis and Budget? I didn’t wait too long in the grand scheme of things but you should definitely be more prepared to handle then influx in business for next year. I don’t recall the guy’s name but he did awesome given the circumstances. All I heard then entire time I was waiting was the phone ringing in the background but he didn’t have time to answer it.

Car hire excess insurance in Hoboken

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Hoboken car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Hoboken.


Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Hoboken car rental.
