KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Newark

  • Car rentals in Newark provide flexibility and freedom to explore the city and its surrounding areas at your own time and pace. Unlike alternative transport options, renting a car allows you to customize your itinerary and visit hidden gems. With Newark car rentals, you can easily travel hassle-free with many people, like family members and their luggage. Having a car is more convenient for visiting attractions like the Newark Earthworks or Dawes Arboretum, which may not be easily accessible by public transportation. Exploring nearby places like Buckeye Lake or Blackhand Gorge State Nature Preserve becomes more accessible with a rental car, allowing you to enjoy the region's natural beauty fully.
  • If you fly to Newark, you’ll likely land at Columbus Airport (CMH). The airport has several car rentals in Newark for travelers' convenience, especially those visiting the city for the first time. The car rental counter at Columbus Airport (CMH) can be found in the central median area at arrivals, situated between the purple columns. Upon reaching the rental car facility, head to the first floor, where the rental counter is. You may be required to provide your flight itinerary as a verification form before you're allowed to get your Newark car rental.
  • Driving car rentals in Newark is quite easy. The city generally has well-maintained roads and a moderate traffic flow, making navigation relatively smooth. However, it's crucial to remain attentive to pedestrians when in your Newark car rental, especially in downtown areas and near educational institutions. Be mindful of the speed limits, which can vary depending on the road type. Familiarize yourself with parking regulations to avoid any potential violations. Overall, exercising caution, following traffic rules, and being considerate of pedestrians will contribute to a safe and enjoyable driving experience in Newark.
  • Although it’s an unforgettable experience, driving car rentals in Newark generally presents few difficulties, but there are some factors to consider. During rush hour, particularly in the mornings (7 am to 9 am) and evenings (4 pm to 7 pm), traffic congestion can occur on major roads like State Route 16 and State Route 79. Planning accordingly and allowing extra travel time during these peak hours is advisable. Road work and detours can temporarily disrupt traffic flow and require extra attention while driving your Newark car rental during special events or festivals when increased pedestrian and vehicle traffic may cause congestion in specific areas.
  • Book your car hire in Newark at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size hire cars in Newark are around 8% cheaper than other car types, on average

Cons:

They didn't have a car for me on the time or day that I need it. I prepaid for my rental 2 months in advance, when I arrived I had to wait 25 minutes before they told me they didn't have a car for me. My ride had already left and had to find another to get back. That night I had to pay for a taxi

Pros:

The car was roomy, ready to go, and easy to drive. Drop-off outside of regular office hours was easy.

Cons:

They don't accept debit cards for payment, without putting a pretty big deposit on hold. I didn't know that, or would have brought a different card or cash.

I rented a van a couple weeks ago, but when we went to pick it up, it wasn’t available because the only other van they had was already picked up by someone else. I reserved a van and never received it.

I had no idea this type of vehicle even existed. The ford eco sport. It runs. And that’s all that really matters. It doesn’t seem super safe out in the country where I live but — like I said, it runs. Unfortunately I got hit by a massive hail storm in my 21 ford bronco - and I realize there is a shortage of loaner vehicles right now- I just didn’t imagine this tiny little car being the $2000 option. I’m grateful to have found a loaner, it is clean etc. the check oil light is on, so I emailed to say it’s on and they said it’s been changed it just needs reset and now the car smells like oil.
