KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Norwalk

  • When choosing car hire in Norwalk, you'll have several advantages, particularly if you're planning to explore not only the city, but also its surroundings. Hiring a car gives you the flexibility to tailor your itinerary and venture out at your own pace. You could drive to Sheffield Island, where you can hop on a ferry to Sheffield Island Lighthouse, where you can enjoy a guided tour of the lighthouse and the chance to picnic, while enjoying the beautiful views. While it's still accessible by public transport, having a car gives you the freedom to manage your time and avoid waiting for scheduled transport. Also, within an hour's drive, is the beautiful city of New Haven, home to Yale University. You can explore the historic Yale campus, visit the prestigious Yale Art Gallery, or enjoy a meal at one of the city's many excellent restaurants.
  • At John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York, car hire is provided off-site, rather than directly in the terminal buildings. After arriving at JFK, you should to head to the Rental Car Centre. To get there, you’ll need to go to Federal Circle Station, and take the airport's free AirTrain service, which connects all the terminals as well as the car hire centre. The AirTrain operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You’ll need to present your driving licence, passport, and credit card, so ensure you have them with you.
  • You’ll find that the roads in Norwalk, as well as throughout Connecticut, are generally well-maintained and well-signposted, especially on the major roads and motorways, making car hire in Norwalk relatively stress-free. Local drivers in Norwalk tend to be courteous and law-abiding. They are used to sharing the roads with cyclists and pedestrians, so you'll find that they typically give way to these road users where appropriate.
  • Norwalk does present some challenges for drivers. For example, morning rush hour generally takes place between 7:00 am and 9:00 am, whilst evening rush hour can be from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. If possible, you might want to plan your travel to avoid these peak times. Weather conditions can sometimes pose difficulties. New England winters can be harsh and cold, and snow and ice can make roads slippery, requiring extra caution. Likewise, in autumn, heavy rain or fog can affect visibility.

Pros:

The manager here is particularly good, always provides me with a reliable car, ready to go when I arrive for pick-up. Fast & easy. And they extended my rental period last-minute without any hassle, just a quick phone call.

Cons:

This is the first time they forgot to pick me up. The guy who arranged it was off work on the pick-up day, start of rental period, and apparently forgot to inform coworkers. They rectified it quickly, however.

Pros:

Service, including picking me up to get to Hertz office. The staff here are always very good.

Cons:

Summer rates are much more expensive. This office is not accepting Hertz rewards points I've earned for free weekend rental right now. And the rates from the Norwalk office are so much more expensive than from their Stamford office - I don't get why there's such a huge difference between 2 nearby offices, and cannot account for it by state taxes.

Pros:

The location that Kayak provided with pinpoint was inaccurate. I finally found the place after asking local police officer. The car was dirty and beat up. It was very expensive for the quality. Finally, they charged me $15 gas charge without explanation. When I asked the desk, they said they automatically do this unless I show a gas receipt. The tank showed full but didn't have a receipt. I feel Budget is deceiptful

Cons:

Stop deceitful advertising

Dont make your customer set an appointment for pick up, confirm the pick up, then when i get there tell me there is no car and that there is nothing I can do except give me a car that I have to travel two towns and a 35 dollar uber to get to.

Cons:

When we went to Norwalk to return the car, they tried to charge us for a big scratch on the car that the previous driver had made. When we picked up the car in Boston we informed the Budget representative at the exit that the car had a big scratch and then she wrote that in our papers. When we arrived to return the car in Norwalk they wanted to charge us for the scratch because we didn't have a pink slip from Budget in Boston stating that we were not responsible for the damage, even though the representative in Boston wrote it in our papers. The only reason why they didn't try to charge us in Norwalk was that we just happened to have signed up for the damage waiver insurance. This is terrible service.
