Staff was friendly and very organized. They were ready for the Saturday morning crowd, kept the line moving very efficiently.

Staff was polite and return was quick.Very inefficient pick up that took an hour. I specifically requested a small vehicle which they didn’t have so got a regular sedan. During the hour that I waited, the car was sitting right there. Employees had not cleaned it and only right before I took possession were they in there disinfecting it. The car was dirty, smelled like weed. There were personal items belonging to someone in the trunk and a used mask under the driver’s seat. It looked like someone’s personal vehicle that had been rented out to me. All other cars in the facility looked good from afar - they were SUVs that had been washed and cleaned and had no damage. The car given to me had not been washed or cleaned, and had preexisting damage.

I was not able to get the car rental because it did not mention that we to have the credit card and person driving had to match... also I tried to use my debit card and they told me I need a pay stub AND a utility bill (which I did not have on me) so not only was I angry about having to travel all the way back from where we came from but she also mentioned how there was no ez pass with the car, so we have to pay our own tolls. She was laughing the whole time (very unprofessional) I was not able to take the trip that I had planned with the rental car.Everything

Reservations taken, not necessarily keptThe car was clean enough and comfortable. The gentleman who checked me in was very helpful.They didn't have my car ready and admitted that it was standard practice to try to upgrade people because they often don't have the right cars. The problem was that the cars they offered had terrible mileage and I was doing a LOT of driving. I ended up waiting 4 hours passed my scheduled pick up time to get my car.

This location is bustedI have rented from enterprise in the NYC area for 7+ years and never had an experience this bizarrely unpleasant. Pick up took over 45 min, there was also a long wait for drop off. The rules regarding deposit ($500 held on my credit card?), adding an additional driver (they insisted on every driver submitting their own credit card even though it wouldn't be charged... hmmm... what?!), the fact that they wouldn't go over any of the costs at the desk ("we can't do that until we have the vehicle" even though insurance, fuel charges, etc are ALL STANDARD), THE FACT THAT I NEEDED TO ADJUST MY PICK UP FROM AN AFTERNOON TO THE NEXT MORNING WAS IMPOSSIBLE & EVERY TIME I CALLED I GOT A DIFFERENT ANSWER AND WAS TOLD I WAS ALREADY SPEAKING TO THE MANAGER. In brief, worst experience I've had renting a car. Would love to hear a response from Enterprise Corporate.

Friendly and attentive staff.Waited for 20-30 minutes before I was assisted with picking up the rental vehicle. However, the car I reserved was no longer available, so they upgraded me to an SUV without an extra charge. I was grateful.

Everything was great, just lower the rates lol. Overall great service loved the car.

I asked for a car that didn’t smell of smoke and was given one with extra air freshener but a smoky odor that emerged after I had been driving for about an hour. More importantly, the driver’s side windshield wiper broke off during a heavy rainstorm, and I could have had a serious accident. Between these problems and an issue with the previous car I rented from Hertz, I have yet to be given a penny of a refund because I made the mistake of prepaying. I will certainly not ever use Hertz again!

There was no windsheild wiper fluid in the vehicle or in the vehicle. When I drove in the highway i could not see cuz of the snow and the wipers without the fluid was a danger situation. I could have gotten in accident because of this. There should be everything in the vehicle and things in the back in case of emergencies such as this one.

Car hire excess insurance in Bronx

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Bronx car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Bronx.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Bronx car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Bronx

  • There is much in and around the Bronx to discover, and the easiest and most convenient way is by car. Visit the Yankee Stadium in the southwest of the borough or Pelham Bay Park on the other side in the northeast. A car will give you the greatest freedom to explore everything the Bronx has to offer and to venture out beyond its borders along the Hudson River, to either Lower Manhattan or the coastline towards Connecticut.
  • The closest airport to the Bronx is LaGuardia Airport, about 10 miles from the Bronx’s center. Via the I-278 E, travelers will get to the center in about 20 minutes, but bear in mind that this route has tolls, so ask at the hire agency how to cover the fee if you’re unsure. Conveniently, there are various car hire agencies on the airport grounds, and shuttles bring travelers directly from terminal A to the hire center. There are also shuttle buses to terminal A, should you land at another terminal.
  • Driving in such a big city as New York can be daunting for some drivers, but it doesn’t have to be. True, the city can be congested and traffic is a permanent issue, but when adhering to the speed limits, driving defensively, and staying relaxed, there is no need to worry. There are many participants in the traffic of the Bronx, including pedestrians, cyclists, and public transport, so driving with extra attention is important.
  • Rush hour in New York can be intense and usually hits the hardest between 7-9 in the morning and 5-8pm in the evening. Evening rush hour tends to be even more clogged up, so planning to drive outside of these hours is advisable. Especially the I-90 Cross Bronx expressway can have long traffic jams in and out of the city; one possibility to circumnavigate it is by driving on the 84 instead.
  • Book your car hire in Bronx at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate car hires in Bronx are around 18% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in the Bronx?For cruising through the city, it is recommended to opt for a compact car, as parking can be very challenging in the Bronx and a small car can squeeze into more spots. Additionally, a smaller car can also change lanes easier, which will make maneuvering through the city much less of a challenge.

  • In the Bronx there is a limit of 25 mph unless indicated otherwise. Driving defensively is generally a good rule of thumb and, although there are posted speed limits on highways, it is required to adapt your speed to the given traffic, weather, and road conditions. Most highways permit up to 55 or 65 mph, but in fog or ice it is pivotal to reduce speed.

  • The average price in the Bronx and the city of New York is around $3, but petrol stations like Petroleum or Shell offer rates from $2.60. Finding a petrol station can also be a challenge in the Bronx and the whole of New York, so ensure to start looking out for one well in advance.

  • Finding a parking spot in New York can be a hassle, so opting for accommodation with a parking space included is your best bet. However, there is also metered on-street parking in various places, marked with a sign. Garages and lots are also dotted around the city, including the Concourse Plaza Garage, which is about $12 per two hours, or the 164th Street Garage with a rate of approximately $7 per two hours.
