KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Staten Island

  • While the hilly New York City borough of Staten Island does provide visitors with public transportation through a network of bus routes, the bus schedules make most trips take almost double the time that they would when compared to the same journey via rental vehicle. Securing a car rental in Staten Island is critical if you want to maximize your time in the borough. What’s more, having a rental car in Staten Island provides you with easy access to other boroughs, as well as to the northern part of New Jersey.
  • If you are flying into the area, you’ll likely land at LaGuardia Airport (LGA) or John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)—both of which are located in New York City's Queens borough. Each airport has service desks for brand-name rental car companies like Hertz, National, Enterprise, Alamo and others. From LGA, you can expect all shuttles for car rentals to pick up and drop off at Terminal A—the shuttle will take you to the car park facilities for each of the companies, which are located in disparate areas throughout the airport’s property. If you have landed at JFK, simply take the AirTrain to the rental car location and head to level three to grab your vehicle.
  • Traffic in Staten Island, as with all the boroughs in New York City, is an unending stop-and-start race through traffic lights. While you are here, you’ll want to keep an eye out for drivers taking command positions on the roadways and let eager drivers pass. In areas where there are bars, restaurants and nightclubs, keep vigilant for pedestrians crossing the road, especially in undesignated areas.
  • While the borough of Staten Island is chockful of traffic most hours of the day, you can expect heavier traffic during rush hours. These hours typically range from about 6am until roughly 9am each morning. In the later afternoon to early evening, you can expect increased traffic delays between the hours of about 5pm to almost 8pm.
  • Book your car hire in Staten Island at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Staten Island are around 19% cheaper than other car types, on average

The attendant left early so I called Avis and was told I needed to return next morning and my reservation would be adjusted with apologies. I arrived next morning and the same attendant insisted he didn’t leave early the day before and said they was no reservation and I ahead to make another reservation at a much higher rate. Total scam. Extremely rude. I tried calling Avis and of course the 1 800 number had a pre recording to call back on Monday. I had no alternative but to be robbed. If you ever call Avis don’t get off the phone until you receive your confirmation email. Absolute nonsense.

I spent over three hours going back-and-forth before I could get a car, because they did not honor the original agreement saying that it was Memorial Day weekend and they would charge me for Tuesday even though I was dropping the car off on Monday, it’s a scam. They said they had to create a new agreement and not use the old one, I now I have to call Budget customer service for a refund, the customer service office told me that I need to call after I complete my trip. This was the worst experience I’ve ever had renting a car.

Only things that would have made it better is (1) if they could have picked me up and dropped me off from rental place; and (2) if they had running water to wash the car with before they gave to me. But wasn’t bad at all.

Pros:

The mileage on the car was excellent.

Cons:

Guy at the front desk was incredibly nice when going to pick up the car. However, at drop off he was a completely different person. Picked up my rental and it had cigarette smell that increased overtime and the car said “Maintenance Required”. It drove well but he just waved his hands and said I’d be fine. Willing to give them another shot but you could tell they’re just there to collect a paycheck. Would be nice if these people cared more about the service. Especially since I brought up all those things, the response was “well what can ya do *shrug*. No compensation or anything. I guess you’re better off just going to enterprise.

Pros:

I liked that there were kiosks to get everything taken care of without having to wait in line if you have all your information.

Cons:

I didn't like that everyone that was waiting in line was long gone before I even got to finish. It was a lengthy process. I also didn't like that I had to go inside to check out for whatever reason. The lady didn't seem to know what was going on. Saying that I reserved the drop off at a different location than what I picked it up which was not true. This process took longer than any other place that I have gone to in the past.
