Top tips for renting a car in Hartford

  • Rent a car for your trip to Hartford and enjoy the benefits of maximum freedom. The city includes sights like the Mark Twain House & Museum and various golf courses nestled in the surroundings – both are best reached with your own four wheels. Another reason why a rental car is a good idea upon coming to Hartford is that travelers can easily explore the surrounding areas as well, such as Providence, which is one and a half hours from Hartford; New Haven at the coast (40 minutes by car); or New York, which is a 2-hour car ride away.
  • When you fly into Connecticut and land at Bradley International Airport, picking up a rental car is a convenient move, as Hartford is about 25 miles from the airport and easily reached via the I-91 S in just over twenty minutes. The airport has agencies like Avis, Alamo, or Hertz onsite and all agencies offer complimentary shuttle services from the terminal to their respective service desks.
  • Hartford is a lovely and car-friendly city with broad and well-maintained roads in most places. However, winter can bring lots of snow and ice to the area and it is imperative to be properly prepared. Make sure the rental car has winter tires and even snow chains in the trunk – especially if you want to venture out into the countryside. Adjust your speed when there is snow and refrain from sudden braking or accelerating. Also bear in mind that, due to piled up snow on the sides of the road, streets may be narrower and cars harder to see at intersections.
  • Hartford also has a rush hour during weekdays when driving, if possible, should be avoided. In the mornings, rush hour usually starts at 7:30 am and ends at 9 am. In the afternoon, it is between 4:30 and 6:30 pm, so always plan ahead of time, especially when going to the airport.
