Top tips for renting a car in Albany

  • Like many cities in the U.S., Albany is best explored with a car. There simply is no better way to get around town, especially if you plan on going out and taking in the sights. For instance, if you are staying outside of downtown Albany and you want to get downtown, it is a simple 10 to 15-minute drive, but via public transportation it can easily take 30 or 40 minutes. This is especially the case at night when bus service slows down.
  • Planning on beginning your trip in Albany with a stop at the rental car counter? For travelers with flights landing at Albany International Airport, you will find the rental car offices located next to Baggage Claim and the cars themselves in the airport parking garage.
  • Albany’s downtown area is chock full of pedestrians and bikers. This is particularly the case during evenings in the summer when the weather is especially pleasant. During such times, jaywalking can become very common and traffic has to slow down as a result. This is also because Albany has a high density of attractions in the downtown area, so people often walk between them.
  • Rush hour in Albany, while not as severe as it is in New York City, can still pack a punch. The morning rush hour usually starts up at 6:00 a.m. and lasts until 9:00 a.m. The afternoon rush hour is when the real traffic builds up, though, and drivers are advised to avoid many of the major avenues and highways from 4:00 p.m. until 6:30 p.m., when traffic begins to die back down.
