Top tips for hiring a car in Newport News

  • It is highly recommended that visitors rent a car during their time in Newport News, as that really is the only way to get around the city. Public transportation is quite lacking and only offers limited service during evenings and on weekends. For instance, if you want to visit Sandy Bottom Nature Park, it is just a 10-minute drive of 4.7 miles. On the bus, however, it can take upwards of 30 minutes.
  • If you are like most arrivals landing at Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport, then you are likely planning on picking up a hire car there. For such travelers, you can find the hire car desks located in the baggage claim area.
  • Due to the suburban nature of Newport News, pedestrians are very common throughout the city. As a result, jaywalking is also a normal occurrence and drivers should keep their eyes open for any unexpected street crossers. Jaywalking occurs most often on Newport News’ smaller streets and in residential areas.
  • Newport News, while not on the same level as neighboring Norfolk, still has its fair share of rush hour traffic, particularly during the work week. On most days, the morning rush hour usually picks up at around 6:30-7:00 a.m. and cools down by around 9:00 a.m., while the afternoon rush comes at around 4:00 p.m. and lasts until 6:00 p.m. As far as roads to avoid, the US 17, I-64, and I-664 bridges are major bottlenecks during rush hour and drivers should time their crossings accordingly to avoid the traffic.
  • Book your car hire in Newport News at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
