KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Secaucus

  • Renting a cheap car rental in Secaucus offers flexibility and convenience. Unlike public transportation such as buses and trains, a car rental in Secaucus allows you to explore your destinations at your own pace. This is particularly advantageous when visiting attractions like Liberty State Park and the Meadowlands Sports Complex, which can be accessed conveniently by car. Additionally, a Secaucus car rental makes trips to New York City and its neighboring areas easy, granting access to cultural landmarks and scenic spots that public transportation might not cover efficiently.
  • The closest international airport to Secaucus, New Jersey, is Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR). It is located approximately 10 miles southeast of Secaucus. It is therefore the most likely destination airport for most travelers flying into Secaucus. To rent a car at EWR, you will move to any of the on-site rental car offices located in the designated Rental Car Center. A free airtrain connects all terminals to the Rental Car Center. Some of the major car rental agencies available at EWR include Hertz, Avis, Budget, and Enterprise.
  • To enjoy your cheap car rentals in Secaucus, it's important to familiarize yourself with some of the common traffic challenges you are likely to face. First, jaywalking is prevalent, particularly near busy intersections and shopping areas like Plaza Center. Secondly, bicyclists often enter the road without prior warning, so staying vigilant when driving your car rental in Secaucus is crucial. To drive safely, you should always anticipate the possibility of pedestrians and cyclists crossing unexpectedly, maintain a reasonable driving speed, especially in areas with high foot traffic, stay cautious at crosswalks, and be prepared to yield when necessary.
  • Most of the major difficulties when driving your cheap car rentals in Secaucus are caused by traffic congestion and adverse weather conditions. For instance, during rush hour in Secaucus, traffic congestion commonly affects major roads like Route 3 and I-95, leading to delays. Winter can also be challenging due to potential snowfall, which impacts road conditions. Nearby cities like New York City can also affect traffic patterns. Planning ahead and avoiding peak hours can help navigate these difficulties.
  • Book your car hire in Secaucus at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Cons:

The fact is that the Secaucus branch is closed and no-one said a thing until we found out ourselves. And then they wanted us to pickup the car 20 mins away from where we reserved it which was about $30 extra taxi ride. Poor service from Kayak and everyone else involved. We took a taxi to our destination.

Pros:

Friendly staff, location reacheable by public transportation

Cons:

I rented a car for one day and unlimited mileage and I was charged for two days even after returning the vehicle within the allowed timeframe (just as instructed by the staff) I called the manager for details and I was still charged for the second day. Although friendly, the staff was not well prepared and was misleading.

Pros:

Good price unlimited miles. East pick up drop off service from Staff was awesome

Cons:

Windshield whipper fluid, any would be nice. I drove through a winter storm through the Catskills for 20 miles to get to a gas station to clean my windshield and buy fluid. Scariest moment I’ve had driving, like low fluid I get. This was bone dry note to sell probably the economy wasn’t the best choice to rent for the snow

Cons:

Atleast notified the customer of anything.

Cons:

I rented a car to go to my best friend's bridal fitting. When I went to pick up the car, I was told there were none available and I would have to wait at least an hour an a half. The on-site manager was completely unsympathetic. When I asked why there were a number of cars in the lot available, he said he couldn't give me any of those because they were all reserved (as my car was also supposed to be). He gave me the phone number for another manager, who was better, but the only solution was for me to drive to another Hertz location 20 minutes away to pick up a car. By the time I finally got a car, it was an hour and 20 minutes after my reservation time and I was 20 minutes further away from where I need to go, causing me to miss the appointment. I was also promised compensation for all of the issues, but have yet to receive anything and paid full price for my reservation. The car itself was also very dirty inside when I got it.

Pros:

The car was great - clean, ran well, and I even had to call Support because I locked the keys inside and they were extremely helpful finding someone’s to help me.

Cons:

Only one employee was scheduled on the Tuesday before a busy holiday for traveling and he was expected to manage both Avis and Budget? I didn’t wait too long in the grand scheme of things but you should definitely be more prepared to handle then influx in business for next year. I don’t recall the guy’s name but he did awesome given the circumstances. All I heard then entire time I was waiting was the phone ringing in the background but he didn’t have time to answer it.
