KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Worcester

  • A Worcester car rental will give you the freedom to explore all that there is to see and do in the region. It will permit you to see and do more off the beaten track without being dependent on local transport. Car rentals in Worcester will give you the convenience to step beyond the city center and take a number of easy drives to explore the area, such as Newport in Rhode Island, or hug the coast and stop in at coastal towns like Cape Cod, Gloucester, or Rockport. The nearby Berkshires are another fabulous visit a close drive away. You can also take a spin down to the Boston harbor to eat seafood, sightsee, and enjoy the history of the city for the day. You can even drive further north and check out historic Salem.
  • If you plan to fly into Worcester, you’ll arrive at the Worcester Regional Airport (ORH). Regardless, the Worcester Regional Airport is a great place to pick up your car rentals in Worcester, as it is roughly a 10min drive to the city center. Simply proceed to the car rental counters, which are located in the main terminal on the lower level of the airport. The international Boston Logan Airport (BOS) is another great alternative as there are sometimes more flight options and the airport is under an hour away. The Boston Logan Airport car rental center is located on Tomahawk Drive.
  • While driving in the city of Worcester, take note of and approach carefully busy intersections and stop signs, as some have potentially hindered views. Also, drive carefully around pedestrians around the Southwest cutoff and cyclists around the Seven Hills cycling routes.
  • Rush hour in Worcester starts at 6:30am and is usually cleared up by 9:30am. Later in the day, roads start getting congested around 2:30pm until about 6pm. Interstate 290 experiences the worst congestion, so avoid driving on this major highway if possible during these peak times. If you’re on a schedule or catching a flight, keep these times in mind when planning your route. Worcester gets considerable snow in the winter, so be sure to practice safe winter driving practices, such as trying not to drive during a blizzard, making sure to clear snow and ice from your windows and lights, leaving a good amount of space between you and other drivers, and braking early.
  • Book your car hire in Worcester at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing - I was unable to make the rental because the hours of the rental car location were a lie.

Cons:

The online hours listed for Budget Car Rental say it is open until 7 pm. However, when I arrived at 4 pm, there were no employees there. I waited for an hour, but no one showed up. I called the location, & it said "all of our employees are busy" - the store hours are a lie.

Pros:

Easy pick up, nice car.

Cons:

There was no one at the counter mid-afternoon to receive my car. I waited for 20 minutes and then left my Budget key in the dropbox even though the box was only marked for Avis, not Budget.

Pros:

Ease of dropping off the car. Simply pulled into the lot adjacent to the terminal, parked, and dropped keys at counter.

Cons:

The agent’s attitude when I mentioned that I was expecting a discount for returning the vehicle with more gasoline then when I picked it up. He immediately said that was not possible; even though, I was told differently by a Budget representative when I called the company’s customer service line earlier in the day. He also did not seem interested in my concerns regarding the cleanliness of the vehicle I noticed shortly after picking up the vehicle.

Cons:

The car given to me had very bad brakes and I was unable to drive the car. I took it back the next morning and they refused to give me a full refund for the car. It wasn't even the car I had intended to rent! The service was horrible at the counter and they didn't even have the car I wanted to rent. The customer sevice with Budget has been awful. I am still fighting to get my refund for the one day I did not even drive the car!!!

Definitely get what you pay for with this place. Took an hour to pick up my rental even though there were only a few other customers. Some people’s cars were not there so they were turned away, and the customer bathroom was out of service. The man who works there is just a bit odd and I would call the customer service sub-par. That being said, the car was in great shape and it was a really good price.

Staff was great. Location and ease of pickup & drop off couldn't have been easier or more convenient. Only one complaint is the price was obnoxious!!! I searched everywhere Kayak had "best " price...however I paid more for 2 days than I would for an entire month of a car payment.
