KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Lexington

  • As home to Minuteman National Historical Park, Lexington, MA, is well worth a visit. You have a wide selection of attractions you might consider exploring. In addition to Hancock- Clarke House, other destinations worth visiting include Gallery Twist, National Heritage Museum, and Lexington Green. There is no better way to explore these destinations than with Lexington car rentals. While the city boasts some of the highly sought-after public transportation options like commuter buses and trains, car rentals in Lexington still win out when you want to adventure the city’s hidden gems and other top attractions outside.
  • Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) is the nearest airport to Lexington, MA, about 22 miles from the city center. Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT), about 43 miles away, is a great option for shorter queues and fewer crowds at rental desks. The car rental counters at MHT are on the main level across from the baggage claim. If you fly into BOS, car rental counters are at the Car Rental Center, accessible by a free shuttle bus. The free shuttle buses operate from the lower level of each terminal to the Car Rental Center. Hertz, Easirent, Avis, Budget, and National are the providers to expect.
  • Generally, driving your car rentals in Lexington is manageable due to well-established roads and less impatient drivers. Still, you need to pay attention while behind the wheel. Avoid using your phone, as it distracts you and causes you to lose focus. Featuring both vintage and contemporary buildings, people throng the city streets adventuring Lexington on foot. Drive carefully and keep pedestrians safe. You will likely encounter several cyclists since the city is a bicycle-friendly city. Sadly, they may overlook traffic regulations. Pay close attention when approaching or passing them.
  • Significant cities in Massachusetts experience considerable road congestion, and Lexington is no exception. Despite its well-developed roads, Lexington experiences heavy traffic because several residents access the city with private vehicles, leading to bumper-to-bumper traffic during peak travel times. The traffic is usually heavy on most roads and streets from 6:30 am to 10:00 am and 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Avoid driving your car rentals in Lexington on busy roads and streets, including Abbott Road, Angier Road, Augustus Road, Asbury Street, and Aon Street.
  • Book your car hire in Lexington at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Lexington are around 18% more expensive than other car types, on average

The customer service rep was precise in her information. Basically took my license, typed out info then handed me the keys. No extra communications. At this location you pick up the car yourself from a very dim lit garage. When I returned the car I told her the car was not clean. Her response was we video the car before it goes out. I said the car was sandy, including in the backseat, between the seats. Her reply was we video before it goes out. I said no, when I picked up the car it had sand all inside the vehicle. Again, her response was we video the car before it goes out and adjust amount if necessary. What? So they take videos instead of cleaning it?

Will never use Avis again. Originally booked to pick up at Logan International and was moved to Bedford over an hour away. They proceeded to tell me they had no cars but were miraculously able to find one at over $300 more than $100 more than I had originall booked. Felt like a scam.Reflects poorly

Renting a vehicle for summer trip out of Boston (or anywhere!) was much more challenging than ever due to (almost post) COVID and the shortage with high gas prices. Everyone I interacted with through National acted as if the knew me and actually cared that we got what we needed (minivan for 6 + luggage), we’re super helpful with delayed pick up due to Hurricane Elsa blowing through, and even made sure we secured a safe Uber to get everyone (+ more luggage!) back to the airport as stress free as possible. What potentially could have been the most challenging part of our trip was a delight!
