Top tips for renting a car in Buffalo

  • There is a lot to love about Buffalo in upstate New York and renting a car will give you the ability to see and do the most during your trip. If you are planning on making the short 25-mile drive north to Niagara Falls, a car will not only help you arrive quicker than public transport, but will also give you the opportunity to arrive early in the morning to avoid crowds of tourists. If you plan on watching a Buffalo Bills game, having access to a car will make the event far more enjoyable, as New Era Field is located on the outskirts of town and most easily accessed by the NY-5 Highway.
  • Buffalo Niagara International Airport is host to a number of major car rental companies with plenty of options to help make your decision easy. Browse the thorough list to find the company that best suits your needs using KAYAK, then simply proceed from the baggage claim across the road to the car rental counters to pick up the keys. If you are planning on heading straight to Niagara Falls, consider stopping by the wineries to enjoy the small village charm that Niagara-on-the-Lake has to offer.
  • The fresh climate and dense parklands around Buffalo make it a popular city for cycling and other leisure activities. Be mindful of bike lanes and cyclists you share the road with; it is always best to provide more room than you think is necessary to create a safer environment.
  • If you are not used to driving in the snow and are planning a trip to Buffalo, it is smart to familiarize yourself with some winter driving tips sooner rather than later. Heavy snowfall is common in Buffalo during the winter months and it is important that you regularly check the latest weather forecast using radio or online resources. Snow on the roads will mean that your tires have less traction, making it more important than ever to brake early and reduce speed. It is also not advisable to use cruise control in any vehicle while there is snow on the roads.
