KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Saratoga Springs

  • Although Saratoga Springs has an excellent public transportation system, renting a car when you arrive will provide you with the ultimate flexibility to visit fun spots in and around the city. While in town, visit the Saratoga Spa State Park, an arts and recreation historic setting, or go horseback riding at the historic Saratoga Race Course. You can also visit the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame or the Saratoga Automobile Museum, both of which house historic car racing models. Outside the city, you can drive a few miles to Lake Saratoga for boating, fishing, and a beach, or visit the New York State Military Museum to learn more about the US military.
  • Getting a rental car at Albany International Airport (ALB) is quick and easy because most car rental agencies have locations within the airport. The on-site car rental booking counters are located near the baggage claim area in the terminal. In addition, most car rental companies, including Budget, Avis, Dollar, National, Alamo, and Enterprise, offer free shuttles to their off-airport locations. You must be at least 18 years old to rent a car in Saratoga Springs. Drivers under the age of 25 may, however, be charged a surcharge depending on the car rental company. If you are a foreign national, you may use your International Driver's Permit, but you must also present a driver's license from your home country. You will also be required to show your passport or other forms of identification.
  • Driving in Saratoga Springs is relatively simple, as the city's roads are in good condition and drivers are generally friendly. However, you should drive slowly and keep an eye out for pedestrians who may cross the street unexpectedly. Because the majority of people in Saratoga Springs are friendly, be wary of drivers who slow down or even stop in some cases to wave at other cars or let people cross the street. Therefore, paying extra attention and double-check for pedestrians and other drivers while driving in this city is critical.
  • Even though driving in Saratoga Springs is relatively simple, most of the city's roads become congested during rush hour. On weekdays, rush hour occurs between 7 am and 9 am when people leave for work and 4 am to 6 pm when people are returning home from work. Most of these snarl-ups occur on roads leading to and from the city center. As a result, you should avoid the city during the times specified. Another issue that Saratoga Spring drivers face is that roads become icy and slippery during the winter, primarily between December and February. As a result, if you rent a car in any other month, you won't have to worry about this problem.
  • Book your car hire in Saratoga Springs at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Saratoga Springs are around 13% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

nothing

Cons:

I had a dispute with Thrifty about a scratch on a rental that I was not responsible for and didn't do. So now I am on their DNR list which I guess is your DNR list also. I won't rent from you in the future but you should have told me upfront when I made my online reservation instead of telling me you can't rent to me at the counter. Budget was great with no paranoia about scratches and a quick drop off.
