KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Mahwah

  • Driving car rentals in Mahwah is a wonderful way to get around this city in the New York metropolitan area, located west of the Hudson River at the New Jersey/New York border. In Mahwah car rentals, you can see who you want to see and go where you want to go without being restricted by public transportation schedules. You can visit local attractions such as the New Jersey Botanical Garden, Sterling Hill Mining Museum, and the Franklin Lakes Nature Preserve. In car rentals in Mahwah, you can drive beyond city limits northwest to Binghamton, southwest to Allentown, south to Wilmington, and north to Albany.
  • Located about 30 miles south of Mahwah, the LaGuardia Airport (LGA) makes renting a car both easy and convenient. By catching a free shuttle at the arrivals curb, you can go to whichever agency you need to on airport grounds. You can also easily rent a car from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), located about 40 miles south of Mahwah. You'll find car rental counters in arrivals and the vehicles at the AirTrain stop Federal Circle. If you fly into Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), about 43 miles south of Mahwah, you can find the car rental agencies by taking the AirTrain to the P3 stop.
  • Most of Mahwah has a leafy suburban feel to it with a lot of calm and quiet residential streets. There is a built-up downtown area coursing through the middle of the city along NJ-17. Mahwah is renowned for having one of the better commutes into New York City. Peak rush hour traffic will add about 15 to 30 minutes to your commute, from 6:30 am to 10 am and from 3:30 pm to 7 pm. When it rains or snows in Mahwah, drive with extra caution. According to New Jersey law, you must clean all snow and ice off your car before you drive it.
  • For those driving car rentals in Mahwah, you'll most likely encounter toll roads and bridges, especially if you are driving into or toward New York City. If you try to pay the tolls with your own E-ZPass, the toll might not register because the E-ZPass account holder does not match the name associated with the license plate of the rental car. To avoid getting fines for non-payment of tolls, consider investing in the toll pay program offered by your rental car company.
  • Book your car hire in Mahwah at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

KAYAK

Pros:

The only saving grace was the neighboring enterprise location (15 mins away in Paramus) stayed open 10 mins later (past it's 7pm close) to rent me a car. This car smelled extremely strongly of cigarette smoke.

Cons:

The Mahwah locatin closes at 6pm and they let me select that as my pickup time without altering me that the office would be closed and there would be no way to pick up the car. HORRENDOUS oversight.
