Top tips for hiring a car in Jersey City

  • Located only a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of New York City, Jersey City has a well-established identity centered around arts, music, sports, and exceptional food. Renting a car during your trip to Jersey City will help you capitalize on the city’s incredible location, sitting just across the Hudson River from the array of Manhattan attractions and equally close to the Jersey Shore and the expanse of beach towns and resorts. Having a hire car will provide you the freedom to set your own schedule travel at your own pace.
  • Newark Liberty International Airport is located only 10 miles from downtown Jersey City and is host to a long list of major global hire companies including Avis, Alamo, Budget, and Hertz.

Kennedy International Airport, both about a one-hour drive from Jersey City.

Cons:

Renting a car always feels kind of expensive and stressful, but overall this was a very good and easy experience. I don’t feel I could have really asked for more.

Pros:

At pick up they were somewhat friendly but, returning the car was an ordeal, it took a long time and they were rude.

Cons:

A car that had functioning windows and keys. Giving me the right return information. Letting me know the final cost and not charge extra afterwards, $90 more than expected on a two day rental is robbery.

Pros:

There was nothing

Cons:

I reserved a vehicle online, the reservation confirmed the vehicle was at the location I needed so I thought OK everything is going work out. I called the budget location that I was going to be picking the vehicle up from that’s were things took a turn. The guy could barely speak English the vehicle that I reserved was not there. And it was not going to be there for three or four days. I could get no clear answers. The guy basically said that he cannot help me even though had a reservation. Huh... great So I called Avis, quick easy everything worked out I would recommend renting from Avis if you are ever in New Jerse.

Cons:

I was charge $25 in Boston for returning the car earlier ?!?!?!? I will be disputing this charge as soon as I'm back in Jersey City. I made reservation to pick up the car around 9:00 am and to return next day around 4:00 am and that exactly when I return the car. I was told that because reservation was made for a full day by the Budget office in Jersey City from 11:00 am(when I came to pick up the car) till 11:00am there is a fee for returning CAR EARLY - I have never experience to be charged because I return a car earlier. The funny thing is that I repeated 3 times in Jersey City office that I would be returning the car by 4:00 and don't need till 11:00 am and they repeated 3 times that this was just formality and I could return the car whenever I wish to.

Avoid this place! Basically a criminal gang stealing money from your credit card. Bunch of bullies and liars. And it's not a one off mistake, they doing it deliberately. Just check the reviews, I wish I have done it before I went there.For a $34 car rental, they took $980 from my card. In Europe, Avis is a respected company but in the USA its nothing but organised crime.

Stranded by southwest, National came to our rescue and our agent did so with such grace, patience, and understanding of our situation and the many others joining us. With such dedication to help everyone of us, they did and with excellent prices. Compared to Enterprise, we saved over $450 for our 24 hour one way rental. I’m not sure how National is able to offer such great prices, but they’re real. Our minivan was out of this world! Leather seats, automated, heated seats and steering wheel, beautiful vehicle!

Pros:

The associates were very friendly and nice, helped me load up the rental car with all my stuff. Great value for money.

Cons:

I really hated that I got two sets of keys and they were stuck together, so I always had this bulky ring with 2 keys and 2 fobs on it. They apparently need to have it like that so the keys are together if/when the car is sold, but it's incredibly inconvenient. What if I lost them? Which I didn't, but what if? Also the fact that I couldn't just put the keys in my pocket was very frustrating. Additionally, the car wasn't clean on the inside or outside, but that didn't bother me too much since I was driving out to the country, but I just thought I would mention it.

Nov 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

So the staff member upon picking it up asked if I wanted to add easy pass which I said yes to and then it never got added since it didn't work at any of the tolls. Also, he never said anything about returning the car with a full tank. When we got the car it was less than a quarter full and we dropped it off with half a tank and then found out it was supposed to be full? What? Why wasn't this in our contract or told to us? The car kept dropping the blue tooth for our phone when we were trying to play music

Cons:

The staff should have told us about how full the tank needed to be upon returning and they should have told us about the E-ZPass not being added when we thought we were using it. Not happy with the car or service

Pros:

Always a joy renting from this Alamo location, they are so quick to get you in/out and it's never busy. Had a few great experiences renting from Gio, it's definitely my location of choice in Jersey City.

Cons:

Only negative is that the cars are parked on the 8th floor of a parking garage and it takes foreeeever to go in/out. But not the end of the world.
