KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Mount Vernon

  • Mount Vernon car rentals allow travelers to explore the beautiful city at their own pace and schedule, unlike public transportation. Mount Vernon is known for its over 400-year-old history and rich cultural heritage, which attracts many people to the city. The city boasts its historic sites, monuments, and museums for everyone to enjoy. With your rental car, you are free to travel anywhere in Mount Vernon; for instance, take a day trip to Branson Zipline & Canopy Tour about 40 miles southeast of Mount Vernon to enjoy forest views while zipping along a forest canopy on a steel cable. You can also cruise to Roaring River State Park, approximately 36 miles south of Mount Vernon for sightseeing.
  • Several airports serving Mount Vernon have onsite and offsite car rental counters accessible to travelers visiting the city. Visitors landing at New York John F Kennedy International Airport can access the counters located in the airport's international terminal Car Rental Center where you can find the best car rentals in Mount Vernon. If you arrive through New York LaGuardia Airport, head for the counters found at the airport's Terminals B and C. At White Plains Westchester County Airport, you can get onsite car rentals at the terminal's arrivals level. Newark Airport has onsite counters next to the terminal's baggage claim area.
  • Driving in Mount Vernon is a fun experience especially when you have your rental car. Follow the intersection rule which states that whoever, whether a car, pedestrian, or bicyclist reaches an intersection first with a stop sign has the right-of-way. Ensure you are alert when hitting Mount Vernon Avenue because it is heavily utilized by transit vehicles, pedestrians, and even bicyclists. When driving behind a school bus flashing red lights, you must stop at least 25 feet from it. Do not make any emergency vehicle stop with your vehicle; however, if you have an emergency and your car is parked on the shoulder or in an emergency lane on the highway, you can stop your vehicle in such cases.
  • Heavy traffic is a common challenge in Mount Vernon. The morning rush hours start from around 6 am, last to 9 am, and are more experienced from the afternoon to evening ones, which begin from around 3 pm and last until 6 pm The drivers in this city are known to be aggressive, especially those taking U-turns. This makes it more difficult for other drivers to maintain a safe distance between themselves and the vehicle in front, such as those turning right or left at intersections or entering on through roads such as Ben Lomond Parkway, State Route 2, and Roosevelt Drive. Therefore, visitors with car rentals in Mount Vernon should avoid these roads.
  • Book your car hire in Mount Vernon at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Pros:

Your ordering service is terrible. I went to pick up the car at the hertz rental and the office was closed. Your kayak service booked a vehicle at a closed location and i had to book another car with a different car rental company directly. I will never use your service again.

Cons:

Ensure your APIs check whether or not a car rental location is open before directing users to that location. Lots of locations have changed office hours due to covid19.

I didn’t even receive the automobile - how do you reserve and then not have a car. Causes me to walk home and then to cancel all charges on my credit cards - what a headache - will never rent, or try to rent, from Avis ever again.

The people working at Avis were nice and easy going. The process was easy. However, the car I received was not at all like what I expected. Also, the car was definitely not cleaned in between riders. The car had items and trash from the previous driver inside which was kind of gross and weird. I also would've appreciated if the person checking me in would've offered to bring me to the vehicle and make sure everything was in proper condition. The entire process was maybe a little too hands-off.
