KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Marlborough

  • Driving Marlborough car rentals can be the best way of exploring the city. Since you are in control, you decide when to start your journey and where to end it. In addition, you can make as many pit stops as you want and take in the adventure. Also, car rental agencies offer a wide selection of car collections so that you can choose the right car for your travel purpose. Car rentals in Marlborough allow you to explore the city's Ghiloni Park, American Heritage Museum, and Memorial Beach. Plus, you get door–to–door transportation, and you won’t have to worry about dragging luggage around.
  • You will arrive at Boston Logan International Airport when taking a flight to Marlborough. The airport has its rental car center, which can be conveniently found at the address of 15 Transportation Way. The airport offers a free shuttle bus service, and you can find blue and white buses at the curbside on the lower level of each terminal. Car rental companies at the airport include Budget, Hertz, Dollar, Alamo, and Avis. Since the airport is busy, consider making earlier arrangements to avoid waiting in line.
  • Keeping Marlborough’s driving laws in mind is important for the safe navigation of car rentals. Each driver and passenger in the car must have their seatbelt on. The law also requires children under 8 to use child restraints. It is prohibited to use any mobile electronic device when driving. However, drivers over 18 can make and receive phone calls while one hand is on the wheel. You have to stop if you approach a four-way sign with a stop sign. The first vehicle in the intersection has the right of way. Always use headlights when visibility decreases or when using wipers.
  • Driving car rentals in Marlborough has a fair share of challenges. One of the challenges is the rush hour which peaks daily from 7 am to 9 am and 5 pm to 7 pm. This means that more accidents occur during these hours. Also, driving during these hours can get delays on the road for up to two hours. Keep an eye out for traffic updates to avoid getting stuck in traffic. If you can, avoid driving during these hours. However, if you must be on the road, avoid traffic hot spots like Route 20, I-495, and I-290.
  • Book your car hire in Marlborough at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Marlborough are around 43% more expensive than other car types, on average

Pros:

Once the attendant was there it was a quick process was able to get a bigger car for the same price Paid a reduced price for dropping car off eary

Cons:

There was no attendant at the place; needed to call and wait and the place was hard to find. Only one person working so she was not able to walk over the car with you beforehand. Car was not cleaned beforehand bill was closed out before ready; was going to us a different form of payment but the attendant closed out the bill and it went on the card that the deposit was on. For over 12 hours there was over $600 dollars tied up on my card for a $200 rental.

Car check engine light came on so I returned the car to the nearest Budget Rental and was told I would have to pay them $200 for dropping off the rental at a location different than where I picked it up, a one-way fee. On top of that to get back to where I picked up the rental they tried to charge me a 2nd $200 one-way fee. Because their car broke down. Unbelievable.

I love this location. They found and held onto my office keys for me when I dropped off my rental over 10 days ago. They had them ready when I went to pick up my rental yesterday. I'm always in and out of there quick (I rent and return to this location often). Excellent customer service!!

Pros:

The man working at the Framingham location was very nice and was put in a tough spot. This review is not a reflection on him— he was great and for having to put up w a shitty company like Hertz he deserves a raise.

Cons:

We arrived on a sunday morning to pick up a car i had reserved to drive up to vermont where i had planned to propose to my girlfriend. When we got to the rental car location there were 4-5 people waiting and nobody at the counter. About 10 mins later we saw a man frantically scattering around, telling us he would be with us soon. He came back in a few mins to tell us that he was sorry but they were out of cars. Already nervous about the day, i began to get really anxious. How can you not hold a reservation or notify us beforehand if you are out of cars?!?!? I had several things aligned that day that were costly and already paid for, on a set timeline, etc... all to be ruined by Hertz. We started calling other rental car places in the area. Many of them were closed on a sunday, every one that was open didnt have any cars available. Even the airport! Suddenly, the man returned from around the corner saying that he had something for us... a Toyota Yaris. Fine- we’d take anything. The car hadnt been cleaned, was a downsize of what we reserved and paid for, and smelled the entire trip like something was burning, but that Yaris made it. No apology from the company, no discount or complimentary whatnot for our troubles... just a yaris and a minor heart attack. Some of the other people who were waiting werent even lucky enough for the Yaris—- i felt terrible for them. Needless to say, I will never use Hertz again. I want to make it clear that this is not a reflection on the man running the location— he was kind and you could tell hated the situation he was put in by the lack of cars.

Pros:

Altima was very nice, great MPG (37), adaptive cruise control, smooth. Flexibility to change drop off location while in route was nice. Price was great.

Cons:

The fella that was at pickup in Marlborough was very friendly, but way to close of a talker given all this COVID stuff. Had a mask on, but not quite covering everything. Was tough to keep any sort of distance from him. Also, car was not cleaned quite well enough. Cup holders had some scuzz and something was splashed on the inside of the windshield.
