Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in New York?

Yes, booking a car rental in New York is worth it because you’ll need one to access certain areas, like the neighboring cities of Albany, Buffalo, Yonkers, Syracuse, and Rochester. Inside the heart of New York you can easily move on foot or with a cab to get to some of the famous destinations in New York, including Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, and the Empire State Building. If you’re planning a trip to Jersey City, Newark, or Niagara Falls, making the trip in cheap rental cars would be better than the public transit system. The public transit system runs on a fixed schedule, denying you the flexibility you need when exploring. With car rentals in New York, you enjoy benefits like comfort, freedom, and saving time.


New York car rental information

The road conditions in New York are usually easy to get around in, and a cheap car rental will facilitate your trips around the city. However, New York’s snow, sleet, and rain affect road conditions in the winter. The roads get a little slick because of black ice, usually found on bridges, shady road parts, and underneath overpasses. Consider sport utility vehicles or crossover car rentals during the winter to get through the tricky road conditions, as they have four-wheel drive, traction control, and bigger tires. However, book car rentals that best meet your needs if you’re visiting on any other season. With over 60 car rental locations in New York, you can get anything from a convenient passenger van rental to a stylish luxury car rental.  The major highways passing through in New York City are I-87, I-95, I-278, I-295, and I-678.

There are a few driving laws that you should know before driving a New York car rental. First, you must use your turn signal at least 100 feet before making your turn. Every passenger needs to wear a seatbelt, and kids under four should be in a safety seat while kids up to six must be in a booster seat. The speed limit in the city is 25mph unless stated otherwise. On main roads and urban freeways, stick to 55mph and 65mph on the interstates. It is always recommended to avoid drinking and driving, and having a BAC higher than 0.08 will lead to an arrest and a drunk driving charge. Nonetheless, it is best to check with New York’s DMV for any traffic law changes that might affect your trip in New York.

You need to be 18 or older and hold a valid driver’s license to get a New York car rental. Foreign drivers will be required to present their home country’s driver’s license, and if it’s in a language other than English, an International Driver’s Permit (IDP) is recommended but not required. It’s only needed if the driver’s license doesn’t use the Roman alphabet, then it must be presented alongside the driver’s license. Photocopies of driver’s licenses and learner’s permits won’t be accepted, and temporary driver’s licenses will only be accepted if the rental location can verify the driver’s identity and the authenticity of the temporary license. Most rental locations accept credit and debit cards, with other forms of payment such as cash, money orders, and prepaid cards only accepted when clearing any balances at the end of your rental period.
