KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Norwich

  • Car rentals in Norwich, CT, offer several advantages that can enhance your travel experience and provide convenience and flexibility. You can explore Norwich and its surrounding areas at your own pace. You can easily visit attractions, restaurants, and shops without being dependent on public transportation schedules. Also, Norwich is surrounded by picturesque landscapes, historic sites, and natural attractions. With a rental car, you can easily reach remote attractions that may not be easily accessible by public transportation, such as Mohegan Park and Yantic Falls.
  • While there are no airports directly located within Norwich, Bradley International Airport (BDL) is the most convenient option for travelers flying to or from the area. Many major Norwich car rentals have counters at the airport, making it convenient for travelers to rent a car upon arrival. They include Hertz, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, National, and Alamo. The Rental Car Center is in a separate building from the main terminal, and there is a dedicated shuttle to get you there.
  • Connecticut, including Norwich, tends to have a strong emphasis on pedestrian safety. Drivers are generally expected to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, and you might notice a more cautious approach to pedestrians at intersections. In addition, Norwich has historical sites and landmarks. You might encounter signage or traffic patterns related to these attractions as you drive car rentals in Norwich through the city. Moreover, Norwich is not a major urban center, so you may find that some roads are narrower compared to highways or major city streets, requiring you to drive cautiously, especially in areas you're unfamiliar with.
  • Norwich, CT, is not typically known for experiencing severe traffic congestion like larger cities or urban centers. However, roads can get congested in the morning (7:00 am to 9:00 am) as residents go to work or drop off kids at school or in the late afternoon (4:00 to 6:00 pm) as they return home. Therefore, consider using navigation apps that provide real-time traffic updates or checking local traffic reports before you set out on your journey. In winter, the area experiences snow, ice, and cold temperatures. As such, consider using winter tires, which are designed to provide better traction in cold and snowy conditions.
  • Book your car hire in Norwich at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size hire cars in Norwich are around 14% more expensive than other car types, on average

Pros:

The customer service reps at both locations, South Windham, CT and Sullivant Ave in Columbus, OH, were extremely helpful and courteous. The car was clean and got me to where I needed to go.

Cons:

I do not appreciate the fact that I was charged an additional day of rental. This is an error. I will be calling your corporate hq to have the erroneous charges removed from my account.

Do not go to this Hertz if possible. Booked on Kayak for 1 day. This hertz is closed on Sundays so I had to pay for 2 days even though I only used the car for 24 hours. Very frustrating. The car also smelled like smoke and was extremely dirty.

Made a reservation for a car to transport my 80 year old mother who, while undergoing cancer treatments, fell and broke her femur. She had recovered and we needed a large sedan so she could easily get in and out. Called day before and confirmed with agent that we were all set with a sedan. Showed up for pick up and they said the only vehicle left was a large SUV that my Mom couldn’t possibly get up into. Asked the agent what she recommended I do and she provide no assistance. No offer to call around and check inventory at other locations. Nothing. Just a poor attitude. No empathy at all for my situation. Conclusion: rent with Hertz and that’s all you’ll get…a whole lot of HURTS!!!

The staff was nice. However the vehicle was dirty and returned vehicle earl by several hours but still counted as a day by Avis. So no price adjustment. The phone line to Groton -Avis does not work but only rings. It’s never busy there so surprised no one ever answers.

Car had a hole in the tire, so I had to drive the whole way on a flat tire. Also, the rental center was closed when I got there. I returned the rental to their 24 hour center instead, and they charged me $200.

Cons:

When I went to pick up the car the guy behind the front desk was more interested in watching tv and getting off early then helping me get the paperwork and car pick up( pick up was at 1700 and they are open till 1800)When I got the keys and was doing a walk around the clerk was already out the door and zooming off in his personal vehicle. The rental wasn't cleaned that well, there was trash and receipts from the previous driver. When I dropped the car off one of their people jumped in the rental and left before I could go over the car with them.
