They gave a nice car, with the apple car play, so I was able to navigate the roads without any issues. Remember to bring a cable to connect your phone to the USB drive, since the agency doesn't provide that.

Very upsetting experience. Between Kayak or the rental car place, they had the wrong information about my rental car drop-off. I ended up having to pay over $100 more on site because they didn't have the right information, and I obviously did not have any options since I was heading to the airport!Very upsetting experience.

Jay, the Enterprise agent, was terrific! He was professional, courteous, & ensured I was happy with the rental. The other agents in the office were equally pleasant.The car does not come with a full tank. This appears to be a cheap way of getting free gas as most people most likely give you more than they got.

1.9 Horrible18 Oct 2021
I rented a car thru Priceline/Kayak to be picked up at HPN on 10/10/2021. When my plane landed. I went to the Budget counter and was told that I did not have a reservation. I showed the agent my email receipt and she said that the car was rented for pickup at your downtown location. This was not so - I arranged to pick it up when my flight arrived at HPN. I traveled from FL and had no idea that Budget had a downtown location, nor would I rent from your downtown location. At that point I had no other choice but to take what was available at your airport location, since I had no way to get downtown and she said that if I did get downtown, the Budget office would probably be closed. The only car available was a Toyota Tacoma, which was OK with me, but she said that the rate would be more since I was now renting at the airport. The new rental fee was $143.96 more than my original contract. In addition, I am sure that my gas consumption in the pickup was double the amount I would have had with an economy car. I do not think I should be charged the additional amount and I am requesting a refund.

I returned the car at 7:44PM. Nobody was there to see the car dropped and to pay. Before that, Budget charged me $1082.65 whereas the fees was for $861.00.I called budget to find the overcharge, the representative told me that it was warranty and they will return it when the car is dropped. As i was saying, I dropped the car on June 26th at 7:40PM. I headed to the budget office to pay, nobody was there.I dropped the car keys and the receipt for the fuel I put in the Budget drop box. When I got at home, i realized that I forgot to pick my belongings up that were in the cooler area.On June 27th, I drove back to the pick up location where I dropped the car.I went to the representative and explained to him that I dropped the car yesterday but I forgot to pick up my items in the cooler location in the car.He called his parking car guys to find out whether they pick the key up of the car I dropped. I could hear the response from the walky-talky radio that yes they did.The representative told me to go pick up my belongings first and come pay. I went back where I dropped the car. A representative opened that car and i took my items.I then returned to budget office to pay. When I got there, budget representative called me and I handed her my invoice.She told me that I will be charged because I have dropped the car on the 27th. I explained again to her that the car was dropped on time on June 26th at 7:40PM.I am hereto pay and withdraw my items I left in their car.She was upset and insisted that I had to be charged because I supposed to drop the car at 6PM even if it was well written dropping time 8PM. She later on called her manager to find out how to proceed. The manager told her on the Walky-Talky that the car was dropped yesterday and the keys were dropped too. Proof of fuel refill as well. Therefore, the client , me should be billed from the 19th to 26th. after that, she billed my credit car that was on file even though I told her that I was paying with another card.She first hesitated and told me that the name on the card was different.I told her that was not true. After she looked at that card again, she realized she was wrong.She then processed they payment with my card. I right away checked my credit card and i realized i was billed twice $1086.81. I pulled my phone and showed her that she had billed my first card on file twice and my debit card. She acknowledged that and said that those payments will drop That was my worse experience with Budget.I hope this inter-action could be simple and easy.

There was no manual for the car. Since it had lane assist and auto bright lights I wasn’t sure how to adjust those settings. I wish rental agencies could give a “cheat sheet” of the vehicle at pick up. How to tune the radio, where gas tank door opener is located, things like that.

The rental smelled of cigarettes and I couldn’t fathom driving that car with that smoke smell. I asked for a different vehicle which was on the lot but the agent refused to give me that car because it was reserved for a chairperson or a person of importance. I felt discriminated against and discredited as a paying customer for a service just like anyone else. I canceled my reservation and went with a different company who going forward I will continue to do business with. Avis as lost my family as a client.

They took a reservation for 6pm, which is when the office closes. I turned up at 6:10pm and obviously couldn’t pick up my booking as they were shut. I returned at 8am the next day and they wanted to charge me double the amount because I picked up on a different day. I was told nothing could be done about the rate in the office and I would need to call customer service, which I had done the night before, who had told me only the local office could do anything. On top of all of that, I was promised a call back from a manager to resolve the issue within 24-48 hours (which is rediculous when you only have the car for a day) and no one has contacted me. Terrible customer service and extremely frustrating. I won’t be using Avis again!

InterestingWhite plains airport is an interesting one. The rental lot is quite far from the check in counter. After the first car reserved was a large SUV and I requested a small sedan, I had to walk back and forth between the lot and counter a few more times than wanted. The agent at the counter more than compensated my trouble and upgraded my car to a Mustang, and kept the same rate! Made it all worth it!

Disorganized!Got to counter at 11:15 for 12 noon rental, 45 minutes early for pickup. Yet as I was signing for car,?i realized my rate had gone up. She told me it was because she was charging me an extra hour for pickup. She didn't mention that I was early, nor ask if I wanted to drop off at same time or if I'd be returning at 11:15 on Sunday. Just tacked on extra. when I asked about it, she and the other agent at the counter both had a huge attitude attack and became incredibly snippy. They were very slow and disorganized and seemed confused about where my car was. I finally got out to parking lot and was pulling out, when the parking lot agent ran after me waving frantically. I stopped and he said "They want you to come back into counter". I told him I was late and asked what the problem was. He said "Theh gave you the wrong car and they need you to bring the keys back to them." The parking lot guy apologized...I told him they needed to get their butts up (sorry), and bring the keys out to ME quickly so that I might be on my way! 10 minutes later, the counter agent strolled out and gave my car to another customer and then made me unload and carry my own bags to another car (essentially the SAME car/diff color)! Seriously rude. Not sure I ever want to rent from you guys at HPN again!Disorganization and ATTITUDE Next to zero customer service.

After a delayed flight, Thrifty was closed (at 4pm) and a sign said to call the 800# for customer service. We had a reservation for 2 months. Didn’t seem like a big deal because they told me to check the cars outside for our name and the keys would be inside. Well, I checked every single car and they were all locked with no names on the outside. Budget ended up saving the day and gave us their LAST car because they know Thrifty closes early and they see this happen to people all the time. It was pouring rain and we had two small kids with us so this situation really made it difficult and frustrating.

At the airport, the car fleet is limited. The car didn't have an apple or android car play, and there was no way to see the map on the screen to use navigation. That is a huge problem. I had to upgrade the rental to get that, and I don't think it is fair to ay extra for the navigation feature.

Car hire excess insurance in White Plains

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 White Plains 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 White Plains.


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 White Plains car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in White Plains

  • Like many municipalities in the U.S., White Plains is best navigated by personal vehicle. This is in large part because of the lack of public transportation available in the city. For example, say you want to go to the Kykuit House. By car, it is an 8.7-mile drive that lasts 20 minutes. But by bus? It would take well over an hour.
  • For travelers who plan to pick up a hire car and are landing at Westchester County Airport, you will find the hire car companies located in the Arrivals Hall. If you are instead landing at JFK International Airport and driving to White Plains from there, the hire car desks are located in the Arrivals Area of each terminal.
  • In White Plains, and throughout the state of New York, drivers are prohibited from using their cell phones and other handheld electronic devices when driving. This includes taking photos, making phone calls, or sending text messages. The exception to this rule is if the device is hands-free or is somehow affixed to the vehicle. So, if you plan on using your phone as a GPS device, make sure you have it set to a hands-free setting.
  • Due to its proximity to New York City, White Plains can experience moderate congestion and traffic during rush hour, particularly for commuters heading into the city. The typical morning rush hour goes from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on heavy mornings and from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 on lighter days. The afternoon rush hour usually lasts from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

If you are visiting the downtown area, then parking garages are most likely your best bet for finding an available spot, as on-street parking spots fill up during daytime hours. In residential areas, though, on-street parking is much more available. As for the cost of paid parking, parking garages and private lots typically start out at around $2.00 per hour.
