KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Jamestown

  • Renting a car from the cheap car rentals in Jamestown, NY offers numerous advantages. Unlike public transport, a rental car from Jamestown car rentals provides unmatched flexibility to explore the region's hidden gems. The city's public transport options, including buses and limited taxis, might not offer the same convenience and accessibility. Having a car facilitates visits to attractions like Chautauqua Lake and its scenic routes, the Roger Tory Peterson Institute for nature enthusiasts, the Chautauqua Institution for cultural experiences, and the Panama Rocks Geological Park for outdoor adventurers.
  • Most travelers flying to Jamestown, NY use Chautauqua County-Jamestown Airport (JHW) as their destination airport. To rent a car at Chautauqua County-Jamestown Airport (JHW), please note that rental car offices are typically located within the terminal building. Since the car rental desks are located just a short walk from the baggage claim area, most of these car rentals don’t provide a dedicated shuttle. Some accessible car rental options at JHW include Hertz, Enterprise, Avis, and Budget.
  • Among the few things you need to know about driving conditions Jamestown is the jaywalking traits and bicyclists’ behaviors. Jaywalking is common, particularly in downtown along Main Street. Pedestrians might cross unexpectedly, so you should remain attentive and ready to yield. Be cautious around Chautauqua Institution during events, as pedestrians often cross Route 394. On the other hand, bicyclists could enter roads without warning, so maintain a safe following distance when driving your rented car from the cheap car rentals in Jamestown. To avoid accidents involving these two categories of road users, practice defensive driving, obey speed limits, and anticipate their actions.
  • Adverse weather conditions and rush hour traffic are some of the major driving difficulties you are likely to face when driving your rented car from your car rentals in Jamestown. Rush hour typically occurs between 7:30 am to 9:00 am and 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm on most normal weekdays. Some of the routes likely to be worst affected include; Route 60 and Route 394. Winter also poses challenges due to heavy snowfall that make roads like Route 17 and I-86 slippery.

George at the Dunkirk location was very nice. Car was good on fuel.

Cons:

Well dressed punk in Buffalo stood there watching me struggle with my bags & did not help. Over charged my dad for using the same careason. $200+ one way is ridiculous! Car was dirty when I got it.
