KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Stratford

  • Public transportation in Stratford can be limited, especially when it comes to traveling to remote or less touristy areas. Renting Cheap car rentals in Stratford allows you to easily access these areas without the hassle of navigating public transport schedules. Renting a car provides more comfort and privacy, particularly for families traveling with children or anyone hauling lots of luggage.

  • You can pick up Stratford car rentals at various nearby airports, depending on where you arrive. At New York John F Kennedy Airport (JFK), the rental car offices are located both at the terminals and outside the airport grounds. The majority of the rental car companies are located outside the airport grounds and provide a shuttle service from the airport to their facility, which can take approximately 10-15 minutes. At Newark Airport (EWR), the rental car offices are located at the Newark Airport Railroad Station, which is easily accessible by taking the AirTrain Newark in Terminal A, B, or C.

Pros:

Staff was friendly and helpful

Cons:

Maintenance on the vehicles are poor. The treads on both front wheels were way below what would be considered safe. The right front wheel also had a small air leak so i had to constantly fill it with air when available. They have a no smoking policy, however the vehicle had clear signs of smoking, from the headliner on the B pillar being discolored from smoke to obvious markings on the passenger seat and drivers side A pillar, as well as a slight smoke odor coming from the vents.

Staff in Stratford location were helpful. Car was dirty inside and out, definitely did not have any clean or wipe down, let alone an “enhanced” clean as advertised. Car also had suspension issue (loud noise at highway speed and pulled to right when braking) and mentioned this to return agent at HPN, I don’t think she noted it at all.

The standard SUV that I reserved to rent was not available nor was any other standard SUV. We had to take a smaller SUV and was very uncomfortable for the long drive that we were taking. They were not very accommodating and only took a little money off for the difference in cars.
