KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was polite.

Cons:

Staff was slow, distracted and ended up giving us the contract paperwork for a different car than the one we were given, this caused us problems we had to exchange the car on 4th of July because of a flat tire. We had to just rent another car. Spent almost an hour and 15 minutes picking up the car

Pros:

Car was excellent, clean, drove very well

Cons:

At the time of pickup the attendant took every opportunity to upcharge me on extra features as if they were standard or required. Was confusing and dishonest, had me sign off before even seeing an itemized list. Did not even realize she enrolled me for expensive add-ons until it was done

KAYAK

Pros:

It was convenient that Hertz picked us up from our home for the rental pick-up.

Cons:

The drop-off time was quite long (20+ minutes), which seemed excessive. We also didn't get dropped off the same way we were picked up before our rental.

Pros:

Car was a good option, clean and pretty new. No issues with the car.

Cons:

Pick up and drop-off were rough. Both took nearly an hour due to short staffing. The one staffer at pickup wasn't wearing a mask even as he cleaned the car, which he only did after we showed up to pick it up. At drop-off, waited 45 minutes just to hand over the agreement slip after exiting the vehicle.

Pros:

Everything was great, picking up and dropping off were very easy. The car was in excellent condition and cleanliness was great.

Cons:

Not sure why I had to pay 22 on kayak and then the whole rental amount at the rental agency. I was under the impression I was paying some “due now” and would pay the rest at pick up. Kayak, please explain?

Pros:

The New Haven staff member was not helpful. He did not explain to me additional charges that were added to my bill before he charged me and then was not helpful in helping me sort out a better course of action.

Cons:

The company could be more transparent about their fee structures online vs in the store. The company could make their workers feel more valued.

Pros:

I chose Avis after I missed getting to New Haven in time to pick up my car from Hertz. Hertz told me I would have to pay $170 more if I picked up the car the next day, plus I would have had to Uber around until then. Avis had a car for almost the same price I had originally been paying with Hertz, their office was right in the train station, and they were open 2 hours later than Hertz! Reserved and picked up the car within minutes. It was a Toyota Corolla and worked great! Everything from checkin to checkout was smooth sailing. I’m going with Avis from now on whenever possible.

Top tips for hiring a car in New Haven

  • It is highly recommended that visitors of New Haven rent a car, as the city is much more easily navigated in your vehicle than via public transportation. This is partly because public transportation is fairly limited, plus because the city was designed primarily with private vehicles in mind. For example, say you want to visit West Rock Ridge State Park. It is just a 12-minute drive of 3.4 miles from central New Haven, but with public transport it can take up to 30 minutes to get there.
  • Travelers arriving at Tweed New Haven Airport can find the hire car desks in Tweed Terminal’s Arrivals Lobby.
  • Beware using your phone while driving in New Haven, as it is illegal throughout the state of Connecticut to call, text, or use cell phones when driving unless it is hands-free. This also includes using your phone as a GPS device. It is advised that drivers make sure to have their passengers handle the phone duties when driving, otherwise you risk incurring a fine.
  • Drivers will be happy to hear that, while New Haven does experience its share of rush hour traffic, it is by no means severe. Drivers can expect the morning rush hour to start up at around 7:00 a.m. and to last until 9:00 a.m., while the afternoon rush hour starts at around 4:00 p.m. and finishes up by about 6:30 p.m. most weekdays. During the peak times, College Street and Howard Avenue are two of the main roads that drivers avoid to escape the worst traffic.
  • Book your car hire in New Haven at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in New Haven are around 4% cheaper than other car types, on average
