KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Wallingford

  • Renting a car from one of the top car rentals in Wallingford is prudent, particularly if you want to extensively explore this city and attractions in neighboring cities and maintain a budget. A rental car will help you extensively explore Wallingford, given that it will afford you the freedom to move from one attraction to another at whatever time you like and check out the attractions in North Haven, East Haven, Portland, Woodbridge, Cromwell, Wolcott, Hamden, and Naugatuck, as they're short drives away. It will help you stay within your budget because the costs of renting and fueling a rental are incredibly lower than those brought about by moving around in a taxi.
  • The closest airport to Wallingford is New Haven Regional Airport (HVN). Two car rentals in Wallington, notably Avis and Budget, feature offices at this air transit hub. Their offices are around the terminal's baggage claim area, while their designated rental car spaces are just outside the building. Since the demand for rentals at this airport is ever high, if you'd like to rent a car here, it's in your best interest to reserve it in advance.
  • To achieve a smooth driving experience in Wallington, always watch out for other motorists. Over the last couple of years, plenty of speeding, distracted driving, and aggressive driving instances have been witnessed. Although local authorities have been making concerted efforts to minimize such cases, it doesn't hurt to look out for yourself. In populated parts of the city, some pedestrians cross the road without considering incoming traffic. This being the case, when in such parts, watch out for pedestrians.
  • Like other significant towns in Connecticut, Wallington experiences heavy traffic in two waves. The first wave usually lasts from about 7:00 am to 9:00 am, whereas the second wave normally runs from about 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The roads you should try and avoid during these periods include U.S. Highway Route 5, Interstate 91, State Highways Route 150, Route 15, Route 68, and Route 71.
  • Book your car hire in Wallingford at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Wallingford are around 157% more expensive than other car types, on average

    Car rentals in Wallingford offer a wide range of vehicles, including Economy, Standard Sedan, Luxury, Pickup truck, and SUV rentals. There are several factors you ought to consider before settling on a given rental. First, consider the number of individuals you'll share the car with. It would be wise to hire an Economy rental if you intend to use your rental alone or with just one other individual. However, a Standard or Premium Sedan rental would be wiser if you plan on traveling with three or four other persons. Second, consider the roads that serve the destinations you intend to drive to. If you plan on visiting attractions served by dirt or gravel roads, an SUV rental would be the perfect hire, given that SUVs are built for these roads. Lastly, consider the purpose you intend to serve. In case you need to deliver cargo or move some items, check out the Pickup truck options available.

  • What's the speed limit when driving a car rental in Wallingford?

When driving on roads near schools, hospitals, heavily populated residential and commercial areas, or active construction sites like Albert Street, Apple Street, Circle Drive, and Colonial Lane, you must not exceed between 20 and 30 mph.

    If you're hesitant about hiring a vehicle from one of the leading Wallingford car rentals because you're worried you'll struggle to find parking spaces to leave it at, you'll be glad to hear that Wallingford boasts several free on-street and off-street parking spaces. The free off-street parking lots are near Quinnipiac Street, Meadow Street, Williams Street, N. Orchard Street, N. Whittlesey Avenue, Simpson Court, Wallace Avenue, and S. Main Street.

Pros:

The Staff was extremely, professional, helpful, friendly, flexible, available and went out of their way to help me with my trip. My primary contact was Alison who was SO INVESTED & is that rare employee who goes above & beyond as if it was her own business. I also spoke with Ronnie & was driven back by Aaron. The whole Team was a Wondeful Trifecta of Customer Service. I got an incredible deal on Kayak, but I actually chose to spend a bit more & upgraded to a premium vehicle.

Cons:

I wish this Branch was in LA so I could use rhem more...OR at least have them come to LA to train the LA reps OF HOW IT SHOULD BE DONE!!!

Cons:

I was 9 minutes late to pick up the car after the closing time for that location. There were still 2 people inside who would not help me, even though I had a reservation. I have yet to receive my refund, even though I have called and emailed multiple times. Funny part is, I went to Enterprise right down the road and they also close at 1pm. The woman inside was very nice and had no issue helping me rent a car, even though I was a late walk in. Hertz is absolutely terrible.
