KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Paramus

  • Rent a car when you are planning to visit Paramus for a stay. You will have a limited number of times to experience a near-limitless number of sights and activities. But if you get a rental car in Paramus, you will have the convenience and time to get the most out of your adventures. You will gain a great deal of proper time planning, avoid waiting in line like in public transport, and you can also make as many stops as you wish. You will have the leisure to travel and visit any places you want. For example, with a rental car in Paramus, you can conveniently go to Mountain Side to enjoy hikes. The place is 30 miles from the city center, and you can get there in 40 minutes.
  • Renting a car at the airport is recommended because they have many rental car agencies. The car agencies are reliable and offer excellent discounts around the airport locations. Some of the popular car rental agencies you are likely to get in the airports include but are not limited to Budget, Avis, Alamo, Enterprise, Hertz, and U-Save. You will get all car rentals of your choice in these rental car agencies hassle-free. Therefore, if you land at Teterboro Airport, take advantage of the many car rental agencies and book your rental car.
  • When driving your car rental in Paramus, you should expect many cyclists to use the same line as motorists. Oftentimes, they don't adhere to the traffic lights regulations. This could be dangerous if you are not careful. Be on the lookout when approaching and overtaking them. Again, the city has several intersections that can confuse you when navigating the streets. If you are unfamiliar with the city, ensure the car rental you book is well-equipped with a navigation system.
  • Paramus is known to have heavy traffic congestion on its major roads and intersections during rush hours. You should expect long delays if you use Route 4, 330 N Route 17, and NJ 0762 during rush hours. If you want to enjoy the leisure of driving a rental car, avoid traveling during rush hours. Get to your destination before or after the rush hours. Alternatively, if you are driving a smaller rental car in Paramus, you can navigate narrow streets to avoid traffic congestion, especially in the morning and evening.
  • Book your car hire in Paramus at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Paramus are around 31% more expensive than other car types, on average

    You'll need a parking place when driving your rental car in Paramus. The good news is that Paramus has many places you can park your can. However, Golden State Parkway & Ride, Express Parking, and Park Right are recommended. They are reasonable with their charges, and your rental car's safety is their top priority. You can also park your Paramus rental car in Nagle Parking and Concierge Valet.

Pros:

You couldn’t beat the price!!

Cons:

The Checy Suburban I got had close to 40,000 miles on it usually when I Rent-A-Car it will have very very very little miles but this one had a rough 40,000. I don’t know if the truck was abused or if most Chevys run that way at 40,000 miles but for the price I paid I didn’t complain !

Pros:

I got a working car to use while the weather is in the single digits and while my car is in the shop.

Cons:

The manager David at the tiny, sketchy Avis location first blamed and disrespected me for “canceling” my reservation multiple times - I booked through the Kayak app and the guy wouldn’t let it go. Then, although I had my screen pulled up but not a print out, he wouldn’t honor the daily rate of 39.99. Then he told me he didn’t have the car I reserved so he was “forced” to upgrade me thus (apparently) rendering useless the insurance I purchased via Kayak/Hotwire. David then put my NEW contract on the screen for a total reservation time of 6 days when I had only reserved three, and the total was $572.00!!! I asked him to fix it and he refused saying he had already authorized my card and “everything would work out” if I brought the car back “early,” even though “early” in this case was the initially agreed upon rental period. He told me that the only contract he’d be writing for me was the one on the screen. I had him write on the digital copy that the contract was incorrect before I signed. I got my car, and the next day he CALLED me to tell me there were more charges being put on my bill and he just “didn’t want me to be surprised”. I was FURIOUS. I would have returned the car that minute if I had been able to. In all, I had to fight with this guy over every charge and I still wound up paying nearly $300 for my 3 day rental. I wanted to have a great experience booking through Kayak, but I got the WORST rental experience of my life.

When I returned the car in Paramus, everything was also quick and easy, and the associates gave excellent customer service. The best part: filling up my tank cost $12. When I returned my car less than full to Hertz, they charged me $10/gallon for the filling -- on TOP of the charge for the actual gas. Never again Hertz. Always Enterprise from now on!!

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

I made a reservation for a car through Kayak with Hertz and when I got there , no cars were available even with my reservation. I was in another sate, with no cars, and had to call Uber going to different rental companies until I found a car. Hertz explained that Kayak does not check their inventories before allowing customers to make reservations through their sites. Both companies are incompetent. Would not recommend either. In addition, Kayak phone system is so poor that it makes it is very difficult to speak to a representative. The prompts will keep giving you the round around until you give up without. A simple and straightforward press on "0" to stalk to a rep will suffice but they do on purpose to discourage the customer. Call avoidance at its best. Will definitely not use not he future and will advise friends not to either.

When I got there to pick up my reservation, they didn't have any cars. This was a Hertz that also offered Thrifty cars (they own Thrifty). Their employees simply shrugged and said that I'd have to wait for some cars to be returned and that they had no idea when that would be. I was trying to pinch pennies with Thrifty, won't make that mistake anymore. For a few dollars more, Avis/Budget has been so much more reliable.

Went to pick up my rental car on Saturday and the office was closed. There was no one there to give me keys to the car I had reserved. I called the number on my reservation paperwork and they said there was nothing they could do for me, so I had to cancel my trip. NEVER AGAIN !
