KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Needham

  • For visitors who want to take advantage of everything Needham has to offer, renting a car is a very practical transportation option. When you use car rentals in Needham, you have total control over your schedule and may choose the best routes for traversing the area. Renting a car provides unrivaled flexibility in comparison to relying on the predetermined routes and departure times of public transportation. Utilizing Needham car rentals makes it significantly easier to travel to well-known sites like Cutler Park and Echo Bridge.
  • The closest major airport to Needham that provides automobile rental services is Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), which is only 20 miles from the city center. The BOS airport has many car rental firms on-site, and they are conveniently located in the arrivals terminal. These companies include Hertz, Avis, and Budget, among others. Renters who prefer to use Needham car rentals can benefit from a number of advantages by picking up their rental vehicle at BOS Airport. The advantage of selecting BOS as the pick-up location for car rentals in Needham is that customers have access to a wider variety of rental cars.
  • There are a few essential points to keep in mind while thinking about using car rentals in Needham. Always use booster seats to safely restrain children under the age of six or those who are shorter than 4'9". Needham's car rental agencies typically charge an extra fee for the required child safety seats. In the Needham Central Business District, reckless bicycle and pedestrian crossings of the roadways are a common occurrence, so you are urged to drive carefully.
  • Needham's morning and evening peak traffic might make driving a little difficult. Between 7 am and 8:20 am, Highland Avenue and Webster Street see the worst traffic congestion in Needham. A similar pattern of congestion can be seen on these roadways from 4 pm until around 5:50 pm. It is advised that you leave around 20 minutes before the scheduled departure time if you plan to use Highland Avenue and Webster Street during these hours on a weekday.
  • Book your car hire in Needham at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Sedans are a decent option for driving around Needham, Massachusetts, because of the excellent state of the roads. It would be a good idea to think about hiring an SUV if you want a bigger car with more storage space and a higher driving position because they offer better sight and can handle challenging road conditions. SUVs may therefore be useful when you have lots of luggage or sports equipment.

Needham's schooling zones have a 30 km/h (18 mph) speed limit unless otherwise specified. In urban and non-residential zones, the suggested speed limit is between 50 and 55 km/h (31 to 34 mph) unless there are signs suggesting a different restriction. Needham's motorways and highways normally have a 110 km/h maximum speed limit (68 mph) though this might change based on the posted traffic signs.

  • Where are the best places to park in Needham?

    Finding the best places to park in Needham, MA, can depend on your specific needs and preferences. Needham has several municipal parking lots located throughout the town. Some notable ones include the municipal lot behind Town Hall on Garrity Way and the parking lot on Dedham Avenue near the Needham Heights train station, which charge about $2-3 per hour.

Be sure to check for any parking restrictions or time limits posted on the signage. Additionally, many shopping plazas and retail areas in Needham provide dedicated parking spaces for visitors. For example, Needham Center and Needham Heights have shopping centers with ample parking options for free.

It’s miserable service. They said there was no minivan which I rent and got confirmed. Even workers said no sorry and no explanation. Strongly recommend no use this service. Worst service I got. Even I wondered racism there. So disappointing.

Service was good on both ends. Mixed on the car itself. I got a great deal and a better car than expected (Rav4 when I paid for a Ford Focus or equivalent). However, it was a car someone had smoked in previously. You can't get that smell out and while it wasn't overpowering and didn't ruin my vacation, it was inescapable whenever I drove even with the windows down. You should just take cars like that out of circulation.
