KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Falmouth

  • Car rentals in Falmouth offer a convenient option to explore the city and nearby destinations. In Falmouth, you can drive comfortably to Nobska and enjoy great views of the beach from the historic Lighthouse. You can also drive to Cape Cod and visit Spohr Gardens, where you will learn about several nautical artifacts. Outside Falmouth, you can drive to Rockport, 84 miles north, and visit the local art galleries or Old Sturbridge Village, 86 miles northwest, where you can learn more about New England's past.
  • If you're visiting Falmouth, MA, you will most likely fly into Hyannis Barnstable Municipal Airport (HYA), approximately 20.7 miles from the city, by car. Car rentals in Falmouth, like Budget, Avis, Hertz, and Enterprise, are in the airport's main Terminal. You can walk to the Terminal. Visitors to Falmouth can also fly into Martha's Vineyard Airport, approximately 22 miles from the city by car and ferry. Avis, Hertz, and Budget are the three car rental companies at the airport conveniently located at the main passenger terminal next to the baggage claim area. Boston Logan International Airport, 70 miles from the coastal town on Cape Cod, is another hub where you can land and find car rentals to the city.
  • Driving in Falmouth is not that complicated because the city's roads are good and motorists are well-mannered. However, you should be careful when approaching school zones, business zones, and residential areas, which are highly populated. Approach intersections with caution, look out for different road signs, and make other road users aware of your intentions. Watch out for pedestrians, cyclists, and school-going children.
  • Some roads in Falmouth experience heavy traffic during rush hours, especially during the summer months. Congestion is worse along Rt. 28 from Falmouth to Dennis, especially on weekends. Try to get to Falmouth before noon if you're visiting on a Friday. Traffic build-up starts from Friday noon to 8 pm, Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm, and Sunday from 8 am to 10 am. During the week, peak traffic hour starts from 7 am to 9 am and 4 pm to 5 pm. Cyclists and trucks that stop to drop off inventory also pose a challenge to drivers in Falmouth.

Kevin was very helpful. Experience was excellent except for moderate wait for vehicle to be prepped. Not the fault of staff, who appeared to be short handed for the volume of work. They provided Uber ride to ferry for us. I’d definitely use them again.

Pros:

The woman at the Falmouth location was helpful and friendly. The car was quite literally perfect (new).

Cons:

Personally, I think another sign or two marking the location of the office would be good. Also, I'm surprised how much pen and paper is involved. Speaking of pens, if they're going to require you to write mileage/fuel etc. on a piece of paper when you drop off, then there should be a pen in the car or next to the dropbox!

The Avis rental office was unstaffed for 3 hours despite being open according to their hours and Avis customer service. Customer service could not get in touch with anyone who was supposed to be on shift. I was stranded there for 3 hours before having to book a hotel. Their only option for me was to take a 200 dollar Uber to Boston Logan Airport that Avis would not cover

It took us nearly an hour to pick up our car. The office was severely over staffed with just one person there to handle all pickups, clean the car and deal with drop offs. She was stressed out and unfriendly. The person ahead of us took 45 minutes to resolve some issue with her car, so my family had to wait in the hot sun outside the tiny office. When we finally got inside, the person behind the desk had our reservation written down, and knew we were coming (we had reserved ahead and called the day before to confirm), yet she had to slowly re-enter all our information. Then she told us she had no clean cars available, so we had to wait while she ran out to clean out the car we had reserved, which had trash in the front seat, unvacuumed etc. While this was happening two more people came and had to wait, so I’m guessing this one poor agent had to deal with angry visitors all day waiting for her to manage. No wonder she was stressed and hostile!! Avis please support your teams with better systems and staffing. We will find another option for future transportation.

Only one problem with the car rental experience. Budget In Falmouth, Ma is scheduled to open at 8:30 AM, the staff did not show up until 9:15AM. It was pouring rain and a line of about 8 people standing in line outside office in the rain. Calling the location did not help. Mail box was full. Going online with Budget with live chat did not help. Very concerning as many people were headed to airports, a funeral, etc. Car was about 90% full of gas and the car was never gone over or checked by staff. Very poor experience at picking up car. Car itself was nice and clean. Drop off was great!

Hertz gave me a car that had a slow leak in one tire. It also lacked caps on the valves. When i returned it after two days the young man (not the boss) told me I MUST DRIVE IT ACROSS THE ISLAND, LEAVE IT WITH A REPAIR/GAS STATION --OVERNIGHT--AND PICK IT UP MYSELF NEXT DAY! Even though I had no other transportation. Unbelievable!!. I refused, eventually the boss showed up, and they gave me a much older car (30,000 miles plus), but only after the young woman--a cleaner--hearing the argument, said she knew of another car, which was ready. That second car, though a standard, not the economy size I had ordered, worked well for three weeks. The young woman should have been behind the counter, not the male youth who talked a lot but had an empty head and no perception of my problem or his real j0b. Misogyny?

Pros:

Nothing. Zero. First time user and "never again".

Cons:

Wanted (and booked) a one day rental on Martha's Vineyard, MA. Checked the pick up location; close to the ferry. Excellent. I confirmed. The confirmation now switched to Falmouth, MA, where I live. Was supposed to pick up the car on Gifford St. on the Vineyard. NOT Gifford St. in Falmouth. Can't cancel through Hertz; "gotta go through Kayak". Kayak says "no refunds or cancellations, gotta go through Hertz". Horribly run company. Never again using Kayak.
