Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Manchester car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Manchester.

Top tips for renting a car in Manchester

  • The easiest way to see everything in and around Manchester is on your own four wheels, so rent a car for your time in the city to make the most out of your trip. The city offers a wide array of great attractions which are dotted all around the city, so getting to see them all becomes considerably easier when you can create your own itinerary and are not tied to public transport. Visitors may also consider taking a day trip to coastal cities like Portsmouth, which is only 50 minutes by car away.
  • If you land at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, consider renting a car directly from the airport grounds to start your time in Manchester as quickly and smoothly as possible. Follow the signs to the car rental center, where travelers will find a wide array of car rental agencies, such as Enterprise, Hertz, or Avis, to name a few. Via the I-293 S, travelers will be in Manchester in less than a quarter of an hour.
  • Bear in mind that winter can bring lots of snow and sleet to New Hampshire and Manchester is no exception. Prepare yourself for wintery driving conditions when visiting during the cold months, and check if the car is properly equipped with winter tires when renting. Travelers may also want to get extra snow chains in case the weather conditions become severe. When there is snow in Manchester, the roads become narrower due to it being piled up on either side, so adjusting your speed and slowly entering intersections is crucial.
  • Morning rush hour in Manchester peaks between 7 and 8 am, so it is better to avoid it for a hassle-free ride. Evening rush hour usually kicks in at around 5 pm and can last until 8 pm, clogging up the streets -- especially the I-93 and I-293, which is teeming with commuters. On weekends, traffic is usually pleasantly smooth and drivers should face no problems, but still check current traffic conditions before driving just in case.

Usually, there is either a two-hour or ten-hour limit, enforced between 8 am and 8 pm. Alternatively, there are parking lots like the Victoria Parking Garage, which has a daily maximum of about $6, or the Canal Lot.
