KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Somerset

  • If you are visiting Somerset, there is no better way to explore the area than with Somerset car rentals. Car rentals in Somerset allow you to customize your itinerary and schedule without the limitations of public transportation. You will also find this approach time-effective, especially when working with a tight schedule. Additionally, you can explore off-the-beaten-path locations that public transport cannot easily access. You also mitigate the need for transfers or multiple modes of transportation when you use car rentals in Somerset. Therefore, you will experience a more comfortable and private travel experience. You can use your Somerset car rental to sightsee in different locations, including Colonial Park, Jersey Cyclone Brewing, and Rudolf W. Van der Goot Rose Garden.
  • When flying into Somerset, you are likely to land at either Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) or Trenton-Mercer Airport (TTN). Both airports have car rental centers. At TTN, the rental car center is next to its terminal, with rental agency counters in the middle of the building, which you can access through Terminal B or the economy parking garage. Drivers under age 25 will incur a surcharge, if they are allowed to get a Somerset car rental at all. At EWR, rental car agencies have their counters at the rental car stations P3 and P2, which can be accessed using a complimentary AirTrain from the airport. You must be at least 21, with a photo ID, valid driver’s license, and credit or debit card to get a car rental in Somerset.
  • Using car rentals in Somerset requires you to be polite on the road, including not tailgating, using your blinkers, and letting other drivers merge. You are also encouraged to practice defensive driving to anticipate other drivers’ actions.

You must also yield to pedestrians in designated places, including crosswalks.
  • You will likely experience challenges when using car rentals in Somerset during rush hour due to heavy traffic.

Consider alternative routes, including the local roads running through residential neighborhoods, to avoid heavy traffic during rush hours in Somerset. The most challenging season to drive in Somerset is typically winter, due to snow and ice accumulation on the roads.

Everything went well. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The processing is smooth but the office space is small. We have to wait outside to give way for the other costumers.we are satisfied how the contract was explained.

I was given a Ford Edge for the week. On the first day, I had trouble putting the car into drive twice, and almost had the vehicle towed.. Luckily, the gear shift eventually moved, so I was able to cancel the tow, and I switched vehicles the next day at my original pick up location in Somerset. They made that change for me and I ended up with a Toyota 4Runner, which was a great drive. The staff was very nice, and concerned about my comfort.

Pros:

Once a vehicle was located (after nearly thirty minutes of excuses), the service person (Michael) drove us to the location where a vehicle was found. Michael was friendly, professional, and courteous.

Cons:

I reserved a vehicle, confirmed the reservation a week and again one day before arriving. When I got to the Enterprise location, I was told they had no vehicles and it took nearly a half hour and my insisting they locate one before a vehicle was found.
