Oct 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Pickup and drop off were easy, the car was new (2020 model, 14k miles on it).

Cons:

The car *reeked* of cigarette smoke and getting a tire replaced was a hassle despite insurance. We did not notice the smoke immediately on pickup because we were wearing masks and they had sprayed some cleaning product which covered it up for a bit. We left the windows open for hundreds of miles of driving over three days and the smell never quite went away. Considering that they charge around $200 from renters who smoke in the car, one should think that they do more about it afterwards. Or at least compensate renters who get the car afterwards. We also had a lot of trouble resolving an issue with a flat tire. Roadside assistance was fast, but the donut spare tire they put on only works for 50 miles. It took us over half a dozen phone calls to different Alamo/Enterprise hotlines and branches, trying to get a replacement car or a new tire. No replacements cars were available in the entire Albany, NY region due to the holiday weekend. We finally learned from a more competent employee that Alamo and Enterprise have a partnership with Firestone, so you can get a tire replaced there free of charge. It would have saved us about an hour to learn that from the first hotline which you call for roadside assistance. Also, when you book full insurance you expect that these kinds of things are covered more flexibly. It appears that totaling the car in an accident would have been covered but getting a replacement tire anywhere but Firestone would have not? How does that make sense?

Pros:

Clerk was helpful until I noticed a mistake in the booking and then she said she had no way to correct it.

Cons:

I had booked a one way car rental for La Guardia with a Drop off at Logan airport. When I called to ask if I could pick up the car a day earlier the customer service rep, said "yes" and also that I would save $25 . When I got there the clerk told me that the reservation said I was returning it to LaGuardia. I said that wasn't what I had told the clerk and she refused to honor the lower rate and if that wasn't enough she would't even give me the original price but said now I'd have to pay $80 more than my original reservation. I walked out and got another car from Thrifty. They made the mistake and they should have honored the price quoted. At least the original price, so I. don't think I will book with Enterprise again.

Cons:

When I arrived to pick up the car I reserved a week in advance at 9:45 AM, it was unavailable because I was "late" for my 9 AM pick up time. Economy did not contact me and was unable to offer me any assistance. They also stated they do not take walk-ins only reservations, so it was easy to determine that a car had never been available that day. Two other customers present at the time with reservations also arrived to find that there were no cars available. An abysmal experience. I can not believe Economy can run a business this way.

Pros:

I had to call both Lynchburg and Queens National locations prior to pickup, and though my issue was not able to be resolved ahead of time, Cody in Lynchburg and Elena in Queens were extremely courteous and helpful. At the time of pickup, the counter staff was helpful and my pickup was smooth. The gate associate was personable and helpful as well.

Sep 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff at the National pickup in Queens gave us the wrong information about adding another person. They insisted that my travel partner was not covered on the insurance and were very dismissive and unhelpful about how we could resolve the issue. Upon going to another National car service location at Newark airport (far out of our way to our travel destination) we finally received some helpful advice from the clerk there. I was very upset that the National Car service location in queens was not more informed on the issue and helpful. It seemed like they just wanted to clock out and didn't care about nay type of customer service. I WILL NOT be renting from National again

Cons:

The customer service and transparency on terms.

Cons:

The fine print says you are required to pay for liability insurance if you don't already have your own, an extra $16 per day. My car smaller, it was due for an oil change when it was rented to me, and there was an alarming noise in the wheel well when traveling on the highway. Not only do they sneak in extra charges, but the cars and service are not worth the price or hassle. I will not rent from Fox again in the future.

6.0 Good

Apr 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff helpful and profesional.-

Cons:

Fox Company is located outside JFK, small inconvenience is that their shuttle is not parked by the Federal Circle where all rental cars are located and customers as myself needed to contact them by phone so I can be picked up and taken to their location. Perhaps, a better orgnization in time/schedule should be considered. Perhaps, Fox creating their own App for customers can create a more accessable and better experience. Now, the overwhelming ashtray odor in the car seats were unprecedented. Perhaps, changing/upgrading/removing the seat covers can override the odor and provide a better air/odor quality inside the car. Overall, yes, they are new kids on the block, they have potential and can grow to be one of the best car rental companies.

Cons:

Got into a small accident and was left stranded by Hertz. It took 2.5 hours to confirm a tow truck was even on the way. Then Hertz's solution was having me drive on a donut for 45 miles in the wrong direction to pick up a replacement car. This added 6 hours to my drive. Also, it was a 50/50 shot as to whether employees would be helpful. Was hung up on 2x by Emergency Roadside Assistance and had to keep calling back and getting put back in the queue. It was MADDENING and made a stressful situation way worse than it needed to be.

Car rental insurance in Queens

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Queens car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Queens.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental 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 Queens car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Queens

  • Jaywalking, especially in residential areas, is very common throughout Queens. If you are in a residential area on a one or two-lane road, then it is even more likely to happen. Make sure you keep your eyes on road and you stay vigilant for any would-be jaywalkers that may pop out in front of you.
  • Planning on picking up a hire car before heading to Queens? If your flight is to JFK International Airport, the hire desks are located on the Arrivals level in each terminal. Flying into Newark Airport instead? In that case, you will find the hire car desks at Stations P2 and P3 on the AirTrain. As for LaGuardia Airport, the hire car center is located just off-site but there are shuttles in front of Terminal A to take passengers to passengers there.
  • Keep your eyes open for taxi drivers and stay out of their way. They are fearless drivers and will cross 3 or even 4 lanes of traffic if necessary. The easiest option is the path of least resistance, so simply let them drive around you and do their thing.
  • Queens, like much of New York City, experiences a daily rush hour. Drivers can typically expect the morning rush hour to pick up at around 7:00 a.m. and run until 9:00 a.m., while the afternoon rush hour starts at around 4:00 p.m. and goes to 7:00 p.m. In general, the Grand Central Parkway during rush hour is one of the roads hit by congestion, so drivers are advised to avoid it if possible.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Queens for £40 or less
  • Book your car hire in Queens at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Queens are around 87% cheaper than other car types, on average
