KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Bronx

  • Why wait around for the rigid public transport when you can hire a car and move around at your convenience while visiting Bronx? One of the five boroughs of the larger New York city, there is, without a doubt, so much to see and do in Bronx. Nestled across the Harlem River to the northeast of Manhattan, Bronx is home to America’s largest urban zoo, Bronx Zoo. If you are the type who loves outdoor adventures, then you can begin your tour around attractions like Pelham Bay Park before driving across town to Yankee Stadium and catch the Yankees in action.
  • Start off your stay in Bronx hassle-free by searching for the best Bronx car rental deals online on a travel app like Kayak that lists some of the world’s top car rental companies. If you will be coming to Bronx via La Guardia Airport, most of these car rentals are located off-site. To get to the rental desk, you will need to one of the shuttle buses right in front of Terminal A. However, if you will be coming through Newark Airport, then you can find the car rental desks at stations P2 and P3 on the AirTrain.
  • Bronx is known for jaywalking, especially in the residential neighborhoods. Therefore, if you are going to drive through the residential and/or commercial areas, it is absolutely important that you remain vigilant at all times. Pay attention to the posted speed limits in these areas, which is usually 25mph (40km/h). Additionally, keep in mind that the minimum speed on most New York expressways is 45mph (72km/h). While driving around Bronx in your rented car, be sure to look out for NYC’s signature yellow taxis, and avoid them as much as you can.
  • There is much in and around the Bronx to discover, and the easiest and most convenient way is by car. Visit the Yankee Stadium in the southwest of the borough or Pelham Bay Park on the other side in the northeast. A car will give you the greatest freedom to explore everything the Bronx has to offer and to venture out beyond its borders along the Hudson River, to either Lower Manhattan or the coastline towards Connecticut.
  • The closest airport to the Bronx is LaGuardia Airport, about 10 miles from the Bronx’s center. Via the I-278 E, travelers will get to the center in about 20 minutes, but bear in mind that this route has tolls, so ask at the rental agency how to cover the fee if you’re unsure. Conveniently, there are various car rental agencies on the airport grounds, and shuttles bring travelers directly from terminal A to the rental center. There are also shuttle buses to terminal A, should you land at another terminal.
  • Driving in such a big city as New York can be daunting for some drivers, but it doesn’t have to be. True, the city can be congested and traffic is a permanent issue, but when adhering to the speed limits, driving defensively, and staying relaxed, there is no need to worry. There are many participants in the traffic of the Bronx, including pedestrians, cyclists, and public transport, so driving with extra attention is important.
  • Rush hour in New York can be intense and usually hits the hardest between 7-9 in the morning and 5-8pm in the evening. Evening rush hour tends to be even more clogged up, so planning to drive outside of these hours is advisable. Especially the I-90 Cross Bronx expressway can have long traffic jams in and out of the city; one possibility to circumnavigate it is by driving on the 84 instead.
  • Book your rental car in Bronx at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Bronx are around 31% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Bronx

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Bronx?

    For cruising through the city, it is recommended to opt for a compact car, as parking can be very challenging in the Bronx and a small car can squeeze into more spots. Additionally, a smaller car can also change lanes easier, which will make maneuvering through the city much less of a challenge.

  • What’s the speed limit in Bronx?

    In the Bronx there is a limit of 25 mph unless indicated otherwise. Driving defensively is generally a good rule of thumb and, although there are posted speed limits on highways, it is required to adapt your speed to the given traffic, weather, and road conditions. Most highways permit up to 55 or 65 mph, but in fog or ice it is pivotal to reduce speed.

Cons:

I asked for a car that didn’t smell of smoke and was given one with extra air freshener but a smoky odor that emerged after I had been driving for about an hour. More importantly, the driver’s side windshield wiper broke off during a heavy rainstorm, and I could have had a serious accident. Between these problems and an issue with the previous car I rented from Hertz, I have yet to be given a penny of a refund because I made the mistake of prepaying. I will certainly not ever use Hertz again!

Oct. 2020

Pros:

Staff was polite and return was quick.

Cons:

Very inefficient pick up that took an hour. I specifically requested a small vehicle which they didn’t have so got a regular sedan. During the hour that I waited, the car was sitting right there. Employees had not cleaned it and only right before I took possession were they in there disinfecting it. The car was dirty, smelled like weed. There were personal items belonging to someone in the trunk and a used mask under the driver’s seat. It looked like someone’s personal vehicle that had been rented out to me. All other cars in the facility looked good from afar - they were SUVs that had been washed and cleaned and had no damage. The car given to me had not been washed or cleaned, and had preexisting damage.
