KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Newport News

  • It is highly recommended that visitors rent a car during their time in Newport News, as that really is the only way to get around the city. Public transportation is quite lacking and only offers limited service during evenings and on weekends. For instance, if you want to visit Sandy Bottom Nature Park, it is just a 10-minute drive of 4.7 miles. On the bus, however, it can take upwards of 30 minutes.
  • If you are like most arrivals landing at Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport, then you are likely planning on picking up a hire car there. For such travelers, you can find the hire car desks located in the baggage claim area.
  • Due to the suburban nature of Newport News, pedestrians are very common throughout the city. As a result, jaywalking is also a normal occurrence and drivers should keep their eyes open for any unexpected street crossers. Jaywalking occurs most often on Newport News’ smaller streets and in residential areas.
  • Newport News, while not on the same level as neighboring Norfolk, still has its fair share of rush hour traffic, particularly during the work week. On most days, the morning rush hour usually picks up at around 6:30-7:00 a.m. and cools down by around 9:00 a.m., while the afternoon rush comes at around 4:00 p.m. and lasts until 6:00 p.m. As far as roads to avoid, the US 17, I-64, and I-664 bridges are major bottlenecks during rush hour and drivers should time their crossings accordingly to avoid the traffic.
  • Book your car hire in Newport News at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Supplier choice car hire in Newport News are around 41% cheaper than other car types, on average

Hertz could not process the credit card hold on a separate card, the staff at the pickup location had an attitude from the start because I was right at the door as soon as they opened. Staff refused to assist me with finding a solution to our problem and strong armed me into cancelling my reservation made through kayak and made me rent a completely different car at a different rate because the one I had originally scheduled was now "unavailable" despite the fact that it was sitting outside. I will NEVER do business with hertz again.

I reserved a car for Saturday July 18, 2021 for 12 noon. I was told to pick-up at Newport News airport. When I arrived at 11:30am, the Hertz was no longer there. I was directed to another, but by the time I got there at 12:07pm, it had closed at 12 noon. I was never alerted that they closed at 12 noon. And furthermore, why would you book someone a car at closing. I booked a room at the Hilton in D.C. for $169 which I could not get a refund for, never got a rental car cause hertz is closed on Sunday. Which my room was for Saturday anyway. Hertz did refund my $359, but I never received the $55 for the insurance on the rental. Thanks Hertz... I flew my wife from Louisiana to Virginia to have a romantic Father's Day in D.C., only to lose money and be stuck in Virginia. Terrible Service. Never Again. About $230 waisted due to poor communication and service. My wife could've stayed home for that, not to mention the flight amongst other things. 😤😡🤬

I had reserved a small or compact car (I hate driving large vehicles on unfamiliar roads). They offered me an F150 (large pickup) or a van! They were good enough to at least get me a large SUV, which was less of a pain but far from what I had reserved.

Pros:

The car we received was a perfect size. I love the gas mileage it got. We didn't have to spend a great deal of money on gas and time stopping to get gas. Helpful people at the airport and at the place we actually got the car from.

Cons:

We did not know that the car rental place was not at the airport and there was not a shuttle to the place we had to pick up our car. That was a big shocker. The young lady at the airport called the place that we rented the car from and we were well taken care of. The car windows were so dirty that we couldn't see out of them at night. We had asked the guy who cleans the car to clean them again but even his second round of cleaning was terrible. He acted as if we were putting him out.

They didn't tell me I was on their "Unable to Rent" list until I was at the airport counter with my family waiting for a car to take us on vacation. I guess there is something on my credit report I was unaware of that caused my name to be in their database. This is not proper or good communication during the rental process done weeks in advance. I promptly walked over to the Avis counter and had no trouble renting a car.
