KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Stamford

  • Whether you are visiting Stamford for business or leisure, renting a car is a recommended way to visit the city at your convenience. As a visitor, moving around Stamford using public transport can be costly, time-consuming, and confusing. To start with, you might miss out on appropriate bus connections and end up wasting precious time. Fortunately, car rentals in Stamford, such as Alamo, Hertz, National, Dollar, and Avis can help you cruise this beautiful coastal city comfortably and conveniently. With the help of these rides, you can also explore the fresh seafood, the nightlife, and other local attractions.
  • You can access Stamford car rentals from any airport in the city. At John F Kennedy International Airport (JFK), companies like Hertz, Alamo, National, and Enterprise, among others, offer reliable vehicles to venture into the city at convenient pickups and return locations. The companies also operate in Newark Airport (EWR), which provides shuttle and pickup services, making your movements to the pickup location convenient.
  • Stamford is a great place to drive around, provided you are aware of the basic guidelines for safe driving. Under Connecticut law, every driver should avoid any activity not involved in the vehicle operation when driving. Texting or talking to someone with a handheld device is an offense punishable by law. However, drivers over the age of 18 years can use hands-free gadgets, provided it doesn’t cause any distraction. Be cautious while driving late at night and very early in the morning, as some motorists tend to be in a rush or driving recklessly. If you’re a first-timer to Stamford, note that you risk a fine of approximately $150 if caught driving while distracted.
  • After picking up your car in one of the car rentals in Stamford, remember to plan accordingly so that you are not caught in traffic. Rush hour in the city's central district and near airports is from around 6am to 8am and from about 4pm to 7pm. If you have to drive during these busy hours, ensure you stay in your lane, follow with caution, avoid driving next to large cargo trucks and adhere to all traffic rules. Traffic in Stamford can be congested, and you don't want to be caught on the wrong side of the law.

Did not answer my questions about drop off correctly in case charges extra. Manager was super rude because my passenger had left an item in the car after we turned in the keys which he considered “lost” even though they were exactly where I said they were. He then stated I was trying to rewrite their “lost and found” policy. Would never rent again from this location or enterprise because they also were no help in any of this.

Pros:

Alamo is my go-to car rental company now. Very friendly service, and their phone agents are really helpful if there's any problems. Especially when you pick up and drop off a car in different locations, which I often do.

Cons:

The only problem was picking up and dropping off at locations that are NOT airports. Always call the locations before you go and know their hours of operation. These are not 24/7 satellites. One place closed at 6 pm; another at 2 pm!

Great rental car experience for me, from pickup to dropoff. This is a great location because it’s right off the Metro North train station in Stamford and I-95; as convenient as it gets for people heading into and out of Manhattan. And the staff was friendly. I’d rented cars since the pandemic started and none of them were as spotless and perfectly clean like the car I got ro drive from Avis! Thank you for that, Avis!

I made a reservation and got dropped off at the hertz location. The guy in the office said they didn’t have any cars. I showed him my reservation and he said it didn’t matter and they didn’t have any cars available and everyone in the office was sick. I’m not sure how that affects the number of cars but it certainly made me feel uncomfortable. I asked what Hertz policy is to help someone dropped off with a reservation and no cars available and he said “nothing, read the fine print.” I went to Avis down the road and had a wonderful experience and even for a free upgrade for less than the hertz quoted rate.

It was nice to get an upgrade without having to pay for it.

Cons:

The car smelled a little weird and I had to drive with the windows open for a couple of hours to air it out. The seats could use a deep clean. They are tan and fabric, so they showed wear. Also the car was a bit bigger than I could handle and it was a gas guzzler unfortunately.
