Cons:

Renting a car always feels kind of expensive and stressful, but overall this was a very good and easy experience. I don’t feel I could have really asked for more.

Oct. 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

At pick up they were somewhat friendly but, returning the car was an ordeal, it took a long time and they were rude.

Cons:

A car that had functioning windows and keys. Giving me the right return information. Letting me know the final cost and not charge extra afterwards, $90 more than expected on a two day rental is robbery.

Pros:

There was nothing

Cons:

I reserved a vehicle online, the reservation confirmed the vehicle was at the location I needed so I thought OK everything is going work out. I called the budget location that I was going to be picking the vehicle up from that’s were things took a turn. The guy could barely speak English the vehicle that I reserved was not there. And it was not going to be there for three or four days. I could get no clear answers. The guy basically said that he cannot help me even though had a reservation. Huh... great So I called Avis, quick easy everything worked out I would recommend renting from Avis if you are ever in New Jerse.

6.4 Okay

KAYAK

Cons:

I was charge $25 in Boston for returning the car earlier ?!?!?!? I will be disputing this charge as soon as I'm back in Jersey City. I made reservation to pick up the car around 9:00 am and to return next day around 4:00 am and that exactly when I return the car. I was told that because reservation was made for a full day by the Budget office in Jersey City from 11:00 am(when I came to pick up the car) till 11:00am there is a fee for returning CAR EARLY - I have never experience to be charged because I return a car earlier. The funny thing is that I repeated 3 times in Jersey City office that I would be returning the car by 4:00 and don't need till 11:00 am and they repeated 3 times that this was just formality and I could return the car whenever I wish to.

Pros:

Nothing really.

Cons:

Pickup and drop off sucked. There was only one agent at the counter. There were like 10-12 people in the line. I had to wait for almost 2 and half hours to pickup the vehicle. The agent was a little slow. Avis could put one more person at the counter. Even the car drop off took over 30 mins. To drop off the vehicle I was in line for over 30 mins.i think Avis could afford to out one more agent to work at the counter.

Stranded by southwest, National came to our rescue and our agent did so with such grace, patience, and understanding of our situation and the many others joining us. With such dedication to help everyone of us, they did and with excellent prices. Compared to Enterprise, we saved over $450 for our 24 hour one way rental. I’m not sure how National is able to offer such great prices, but they’re real. Our minivan was out of this world! Leather seats, automated, heated seats and steering wheel, beautiful vehicle!

KAYAK

Pros:

The associates were very friendly and nice, helped me load up the rental car with all my stuff. Great value for money.

Cons:

I really hated that I got two sets of keys and they were stuck together, so I always had this bulky ring with 2 keys and 2 fobs on it. They apparently need to have it like that so the keys are together if/when the car is sold, but it's incredibly inconvenient. What if I lost them? Which I didn't, but what if? Also the fact that I couldn't just put the keys in my pocket was very frustrating. Additionally, the car wasn't clean on the inside or outside, but that didn't bother me too much since I was driving out to the country, but I just thought I would mention it.

4.0 Mediocre

Nov. 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

So the staff member upon picking it up asked if I wanted to add easy pass which I said yes to and then it never got added since it didn't work at any of the tolls. Also, he never said anything about returning the car with a full tank. When we got the car it was less than a quarter full and we dropped it off with half a tank and then found out it was supposed to be full? What? Why wasn't this in our contract or told to us? The car kept dropping the blue tooth for our phone when we were trying to play music

Cons:

The staff should have told us about how full the tank needed to be upon returning and they should have told us about the E-ZPass not being added when we thought we were using it. Not happy with the car or service

KAYAK

Pros:

Always a joy renting from this Alamo location, they are so quick to get you in/out and it's never busy. Had a few great experiences renting from Gio, it's definitely my location of choice in Jersey City.

Cons:

Only negative is that the cars are parked on the 8th floor of a parking garage and it takes foreeeever to go in/out. But not the end of the world.

Top tips for renting a car in Jersey City

  • Cheap car rentals in Jersey City are an affordable and efficient way to travel throughout town, as well as to visit other cities in the region, such as New York, which is approximately a 20min drive away. You can also use your rental car to go to Philadelphia, which can be reached by car in around 1h 45min, or Baltimore, which is approximately a 3h drive away.
  • The city has several pedestrian-only areas, which you will want to make sure you take note of when operating Jersey City car rentals. For example, there is a Pedestrian Mall on Newark Avenue between Grove Street and Erie Street. This area has also been extended between Barrow Street and Jersey Avenue.
  • There are quite a few different annual festivals that are held in Jersey City, and the city center is frequently closed off to vehicles when these events take place. The Spring Festival is quite common amongst both locals and visitors, and it typically takes place in April. There is also the All About Downtown Street Festival, which normally occurs at some point in September.
  • Located only a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of New York City, Jersey City has a well-established identity centered around arts, music, sports, and exceptional food. Renting a car during your trip to Jersey City will help you capitalize on the city’s incredible location, sitting just across the Hudson River from the array of Manhattan attractions and equally close to the Jersey Shore and the expanse of beach towns and resorts. Having a rental car will provide you the freedom to set your own schedule travel at your own pace.
  • Newark Liberty International Airport is located only 10 miles from downtown Jersey City and is host to a long list of major global rental companies including Avis, Alamo, Budget, and Hertz. The counters for all rental agencies are located at station P3 of the airport, a short Air Train ride from station P2. Also consider flying to either Teterboro Airport or John F. Kennedy International Airport, both about a one-hour drive from Jersey City.
  • Being part of the Greater New York City metropolitan area means that there are people everywhere; on the roads, on sidewalks, in parked cars, in alleyways. Be aware of the fact that conditions on Jersey City roads are constantly changing and it is important to stay concentrated and yield to pedestrians.
  • Jersey City experiences significant rush hour traffic from 6:30 am to 9:30 am in the morning, as well as between 4 pm and 7 pm in the evening. It is advisable to avoid or minimize the driving that you do during these periods and instead look towards the reliable public transport system as a viable alternative.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Jersey City for C$ 323 or less
  • Book your rental car in Jersey City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Jersey City are around -270% cheaper than other car types, on average
