KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Union

  • If you love exploring different destinations, consider renting a car from one of the cheapest Union car rental agencies. With a rental, you can drive to any destination without limitations compared to public transportation like the metro buses, which might not work during weekends. You can drive yourself to the major historical sites within and outside the city center. For instance, you can drive to Liberty Hall Museum, which is 2.1 miles away from the city center, Caldwell Parsonage, and Boxwood Hall State Historic site, which is 4 miles away.
  • Choose Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) when traveling to Union. This is because you can conveniently rent a car as this airport has several car rental agencies such as Hertz, Avis, Budget and Payless.  These car rental agencies have counters right opposite the baggage claim area, and the ones that do not have desks here at the airport, like Enterprise, offer shuttle services to the pickup location. Some of the agencies offer these services at a fee, while others offer the same services for free. Therefore, ensure you confirm with the car rental agency you are using in advance.
  • Driving a car rental in Union is relatively easy since the roads are well maintained. Cyclists are also careful when riding on the roads. However, you should adopt the self-defense mechanism when driving on these roads. You should ensure your car is customized with a GPS system for easy navigation when driving downtown since some of their roads are one-way roads, and the turning points usually change. You should also watch out for pedestrians so that you don’t hit them. Finally, use the indicator to ensure the road users are always aware of your intentions.
  • Although driving a car rental in Union is easy, sometimes it is really hectic, especially during rush hours. Morning rush hour in Union starts at 6 am to 10 am and evening from 4:30 pm to 8:30 pm. This occurs in different roads. For instance,  roads leading to the city center are usually affected by traffic since all commuters, service buses, and other cars are all heading in the same direction. You should also avoid driving near schools or campus during the morning drop off and evening pick up since there is congestion outside the school gate and premises.
  • Book your car hire in Union at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Union are around 16% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Nothing terrible experience

Cons:

Communication would have been better. The location I was picking up the car starting closing on weekends for covid. No one notified me, so I paid for. $20 Uber to show up to a closed business. Hertz shouldn’t had the common sense to call people who booked weekend pickups and reschedule them. Ridiculous

Pros:

Nothing. They cancelled the morning of the reservation and didnt even try to help find a replacement.

More friendly customer service. I realize they are struggling financially but that's no reason to abandon courteousness and caring.

Pros:

Tamecka Dixon was the friendliest and most accommodating agent I have interacted with across ANY car rental platform. She kept her office open for 15 extra minutes as I was running late, even though it was the night before Thanksgiving. Her generosity and flexibility make her an exceptional member of Avis and I am certainly going to rent with Avis once again largely because of the stellar service, coupled with the easy check-in process and lower costs.

Cons:

A more secure drop-off process would be preferred. The office is closed on Sundays, so dropping off in they key window did not feel as secure as ideal.

Quite a few slap on fees, which I assume is the routine car rental fees that is hidden when you book a car on line.
