KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Niagara Falls

  • Welcome to the thrilling American side of the natural wonder that is Niagara Falls. Home to one of the world’s most iconic tourism sites, the area of Niagara Falls is a bucket-list destination for worldly lovers of spectacular and impressive sights. Having cheap car hire in Niagara Falls will be your passport to exploration as you make your way around Niagara Falls State Park, Prospect Point’s Observation Tower, Niagara Gorge Discovery Center and so much more that puts this city on the map. If you are looking for some glamour, take a weekend trip up to Manhattan, about 7 hours away via the 1-80W motorway.
  • If you are approaching Niagara Falls from the American side, you will probably land at Buffalo Airport (BUF). Order the ideal car for your trip through KAYAK and land with the knowledge that it will be waiting for you as you start your adventures off the right way. You will find an Avis and Budget based on site at the airport waiting to assist you.
  • Booking car hire in Niagara Falls is a wise way to get around while you are planning your big trek up to the Falls. You will abide by US road rules, which means driving on the right-hand side of the road. The motorways and road networks are well maintained and should lead to smooth driving. Stay under a 0.08% blood alcohol limit and remain buckled up at all times behind the wheel. If you are taking kids on the trip, it is vital they remain buckled up in car seats until four years of age. Mobile phone use while driving is prohibited, and in the States, you will be expected to keep horn use to an absolute minimum.
  • A challenge while using car hire in Niagara Falls could be the weather conditions. Despite summer having decent weather, the mist in the area makes it quite wet as you get closer to the park. You will also find winter is a bad time to visit, as snow on the roads makes the roads pretty hair-raising in places. As this area is one of the most visited tourist spots in the world, you can expect congestion in the form of cars and tour buses to sometimes get in your way or take up all the parking. Plan your trip with advice from a GPS.
  • Book your car hire in Niagara Falls at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

While the roads are not particularly challenging in terms of infrastructure, you may want to hire a vehicle that gives you a comfortable journey for road trips. SUVs are always great for a nice powerful drive, but a compact vehicle or a sedan can handle the terrain just as easily.

  • What is the speed limit in Niagara Falls?

Always use road signs as the true indicator of speeds, as they are sometimes altered to accommodate road conditions or bad weather.

  • Where are the best places to park in Niagara Falls?

There are some areas where street parking is allowed, and they will be visible with metered systems. The city has a few parking garages which are great for hire cars, such as the City of Niagara Municipal Parking and City Parking Lot 28th Street. When you visit the Falls, you can find parking in Niagara Falls State Park Parking and Niagara Falls Visitor Center Parking Lot 1.

Customer service was good. Was told if I brought it back a couple hours past due I'd be charged 30 bucks an hour. I was charged for another whole day. Wasn't sure what the problem was.

I liked the vehicle. Did not like the employee as he was not there when he was supposed to be. When he did show up he didn't apologize just carried on with this routine. People were waiting. The location doesn't answer the phone. Not a good experience.

We would not know how the cat was as the location did not have a car for us. We were traveling with a family with kids and seniors, who had walked a mile to pick up the car. The guy behind the counter had no interest in giving us the car and had zero empathy, when we pointed out to him that he has several cars in the lot we were told they were out for maintenance. Lucky for us enterprise was nearby and both rentals from enterprise were good experiences.

We expected to rent a Toyota RAV4 like was shown on the rental website. Instead, we were only offered a Jeep Compass which is quite inferior to the RAV4. The return was okay except we arrived just past the closing time due to road closures in Quebec City. The attendant was closing out for the day but said we would get a credit statement sent to our email address. None has been received to date.

Pros:

Cons:

When I dropped off the car I had made sure everything was nice and clean and filled up the tank more than I needed to in order to be as courteous as possible. When the staff member came back in from inspecting the car he claimed there was a stone chip in the windshield. I asked him to show me because I did not see anything. He pointed to a bug splatter. We argued but it didn't matter. I wrote a claim saying that I disagreed. I am concerned that some crazy charge is going to end up on my card that is not valid. Worst car rental experience I have ever had.

They gave me a car that wasn't cleaned or disinfected. I found a rental agreement and covid mask from last renter in center console of rental car. Took picture of contents of center console...covid mask/paperwork. And I still have the rental agreement from last renter. This is not the time to skip cleaning (COVID). Website states special cleaning??????? I had my elderly mother in car the first day. Would have never let her into rental if Id known at that time it wasnt cleaned..Brought this to their attention when dropping off car and they said call customer service like it was a non issue. I have have a open complaint with avis. Case # 46378720
