KAYAK’s 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. The counters for all hire agencies are located at station P3 of the airport, a short Air Train ride from station P2. Also consider flying to either Teterboro Airport or John F. Kennedy International Airport, both about a one-hour drive from Jersey City.
  • Being part of the Greater New York City metropolitan area means that there are people everywhere; on the roads, on sidewalks, in parked cars, in alleyways. Be aware of the fact that conditions on Jersey City roads are constantly changing and it is important to stay concentrated and yield to pedestrians.
  • Jersey City experiences significant rush hour traffic from 6:30 am to 9:30 am in the morning, as well as between 4 pm and 7 pm in the evening. It is advisable to avoid or minimize the driving that you do during these periods and instead look towards the reliable public transport system as a viable alternative.
  • Book your car hire in Jersey City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Jersey City are around 16% more expensive than other car types, on average

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!

The Hertz location had overbooked and was ~40 vehicles short of what they actually needed. This resulted in a wait of over 2 hours for a car. Once finally in a car, the car was only charged ~50%, which was not enough to complete my trip for that day without recharging. Overall, very poor customer service.

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.

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.
