Pros:

Like the Nissan Rouge

Cons:

The inside windshield was covered with a residue film as if cleaned seemed to have been cleaned with a lysol wipe or something resulting in dangerous visibility; which became noticeable once out into traffic and nighttime headlights. Desperately trying to clean it with my sleeve, I missed the exit resulting in an unwanted late night tour through Newark. The agent at Newark was pleasant enough, though I had no instructions concerning dropbox drop off resulting in two trips of considerable distance from the rental lot at ABE at 11 PM. I’m sure there’s small print somewhere, but the price went from $81 to ringing up to $250, which the agent explained was $100 holding fee, hopefully refundable for my two hour rentsl.

Pros:

The pick up and drop off experience was great. I also called Avis to extend my reservation and received the information I needed to make an informed decision.

Cons:

The car was not as clean as I expected - there was obvious food and debris on the seats. There was also a faint smell of smoke. Given the pandemic I would have expected cleaning procedures would have been increased.

Pros:

The drop off was great. Service in Atlanta was very fast and contactless. The rental hold money was returned quickly following drop off. The car ran fine.

Cons:

The car was not very clean either inside or outside upon pickup. The car was not available at the pick up time and I had to wait about 45 minutes to an hour for a vehicle to arrive that I could use. The person checking me in was not forthcoming about the amount Alamo was going to charge my card which caused unnecessary confusion during pickup. I have used Alamo before and did not have any problems when renting in other states so my family will likely rent from them again in the future. Maybe it was the ERW airport having an off day.

I left my purse somewhere between the rental car return and the train so dashed back to trace my steps and met the nicest enterprise employee ever who quickly took me to the car to check, called his manager and then the manager called the train folks. Happy ending in that my purse was returned and we were able to catch our scheduled flight! It started with two very conscientious Enterprise employees. I failed to get their names but am sending them a high five!

This is very disturbing especially in this time of Covid 19.

Cons:

ion. I called and was told that the max. rental that Payless can do is 30 days and that if I wanted to extend to 7/16 that I would have to return to the airport and pay whatever the rate was at that time. Disgusted, I returned the car on 6/18 and was charged a higher rate than my confirmation.

KAYAK

Pros:

Drop off was quick and painless. I think we waited about 25 minutes for the van to be ready at the Newark airport when we went to pick it up. We had a Chrysler Pacifica van and it ran well, got over 25 mpg driving fast, and the AC worked good.

Cons:

On the downside, the third seat was elecric folding and it did not work properly. We had to manually push the cushions down to get a flat floor. For a long trip, the front seats in the Pacifica van are strictly mediocre, and the 2nd row seats are awful - like a padded jump seat. Too many gadgets. I will reserve final judgement on the billing for when we get the credit card statement.

Pros:

The car was spacious, the pickup representative was very kind despite our delay, as a van (which was reserved and needed for moving space) wasn't at first available and we had to wait. The car ran nicely and was very clean.

Cons:

Transparency of cost. We just received our final charge and were surprised by a $150 cleaning fee, despite the car being perfectly clean upon returning it. This was not disclosed prior to our dropoff and really pushed the cost of this rental over the line for us financially. Had we known of so many surprise fees, we would not have booked at this cost.

I booked a vehicle rental through Kayak as I was landing at Newark airport and when I showed up at the Herz counter at the airport I was told that they had no reservation. It turned out that the app defaulted me to an off site Herz location that was miles away (which seems perfectly illogical) from the airport and there was nothing the people at Hertz could do because I booked it through Kayak. I had no means of travel to the location in question and the folks at Herz were unable to offer me any assistance. Why the app would have defaulted a passenger on foot at an airport to some far off location miles away from the airport when there is no means of getting there is beyond me. After wasting about an hour of my time figuring out what a bind Kayak put me in, I tried to cancel my reservation, but was informed by the app that I could not. What absolute garbage. I walked next door to Avis and walked out with a rental in five minutes. I am hereby contesting these charges, as I will do through my credit card company, as it was entirely Kayak’s fault for defaulting to an off site car rental without any notice whatsoever to the user. Herz did nothing wrong. This was entirely Kayak’s fault.

Pros:

Nothing. Hertz did not have an available car from me at the location my reservation time, even though I made AND PAID FOR the reservation in advance. The location not only ran out of cars hours before my reservation, but they did not think to even call me to tell me that they will not be able to honor my reservation. I had to commute almost two hours to reach the Hertz location. I only found out AFTER reaching the Hertz location that my reservation would not be honored. The location also refused to assist me with my dilemma. I am STILL actively trying to get my money back for a service they refused to provide.

Cons:

Confirm the location will have a car when a reservation is made in advance. I made the reservation over a week in advance. There is NO REASON AT ALL for Hertz to not have a car ready for me when I arrived.

Rental car company said they did not have my reservation. I gave them my confirmation number and they said they had no record of it.

Cons:

I rented a car in advance and the rental company at the airport closed earlier than their stated closing time and I missed the rental. So I had to rent another car and lost the $200 because it’s non refundable due to 3rd party rental. I will rent directly from the rental company from now on.

Pros:

Their customer service was really very good. Unfortunately they had no cars to honour the booking. They did try to help and we're very willing to do so. But there were no cars.

Cons:

Have more cars.

Pros:

Quick and pretty easy process

Cons:

Confusion when picking up car - it was origami given to another couple and then they were told to get out and give the car to me (with no explanation)

Aug. 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Pick-up counter was a nightmare-- we waitied 30 minutes. They were woefully understaffed, and all but one of the staff was ridiculously slow. The location is also very difficult to access when returning the car. It's like some kind of google map exercise to see if you can actually find the drop-off

Cons:

More staff, or at least one that felt some sense of urgency. Unfortunately, the location issue is a bigger issue with Newark Airport.

Pros:

It was a small operation. I hadn’t seen on like it in a long time. The two ladies that attended me were so sweet and funny.

Cons:

The car didn’t have Bluetooth that was the only thing.

Cons:

For starters, on the day of pick up the woman at the reservation counter called and ask me if I can pick up the car earlier than my reserved time because she wanted to go home early. When I picked up the car she wanted to charge me for miles

Pros:

Easy to get to, shuttle driver was really nice. Not many people there so easy in and out.

Cons:

They took a deposit and it was not returned within a week, which is when I am writing this review. Spoke on the phone with them yesterday, was told they would refund money that day, but not done. An unprofessional operation - there was no receipt given at return.

KAYAK

Pros:

Good on gas. Remember, Jersey has gas station attendants. You do not pump your own gas.

Cons:

2012 vehicle. Bubble on front right tire. Windshield wiper smacking right pilar. Many nicks and dings over the entire car which, as it turns out, blended in with most vehicles in Jersey... Only after you make to reservation you find out where the rental location is. Take the train to the "hotel pickup". Don't go to the "Rental Car" station. READ THE AGREEMENT CAREFULLY!

Pros:

Got in and got out. Was cheap. Drop-off was simple.

Cons:

Finding the pick-up location was a huge hassle. It's tucked under a parking garage next to a hotel. Can't see the signage from the street.

Mar. 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

the car was very old and was malfunctioning. I could barely drive up-hill as the engine was stalling. I had difficulty passing other cars as I couldn't accelerate due to engine problems, I guess? This car should have not been in service as it wasn't safe for the driver or for the passing traffic. Additionally, Ace charged me $350 on my credit card even though I prepaid for the rental. I never got a receipt for the charge and I'm disputing it with my credit card. Ace office was old and smelly, the employees were smoking cigarettes in the office. Terrible experience for a car rental. I will never use ACE again

Pros:

Nice car but not enough explanation on how to operate the features of the car.

Cons:

Getting to the rental location was difficult, no clear direction on where and how to get a pick up. Everything is on an app. and that is a pain if you phone is no working well.

5.2 Okay

Nov. 2019

KAYAK

Cons:

Please ensure that u add additional time to your booking in the beginning itself. They charged me for 2 whole additional days for returning the car about 3 hours late. Also, the Audi Q3 is not the best option for a long drive. The car hydroplaned massively on wet road conditions in upstate NY. Seat quality and ride quality left a whole lot to be desired. Overall, I’m extremely disappointed. Wouldn’t be recommending.

9.2 Excellent

Oct. 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

The great Audi A5 and the quick/convenient pickup and drop off.

Cons:

The App is essential and I was only recommended to get it ahead of time. Tell the customer that it is required, so they will have all info loaded ahead of time.

Cons:

Attendant at location was unprofessional, unhelpful, and rude enough that I opted to cancel my reservation and make other arrangements. I can't say anything about the vehicle itself since I was never in it.

Top tips for renting a car in Newark

  • Newark, New Jersey is a short drive to many other states including New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. If you rent a car, you’ll be able to see so much more while on vacation. Spend a day or two in New York City then make a day trip to New Canaan, Connecticut to tour the Glass House or Bethlehem, Pennsylvania for some casino fun.
  • Flying into Newark offers easy access to numerous cities including Trenton, Long Island, Hoboken, and New York City. At Newark Liberty International Airport you’ll find it easy to rent a car. Depending upon what company you use, you can get to the rental desk at Station P2 or P3.
  • During your stay, you’ll find yourself frequenting the New Jersey Turnpike to get to numerous destinations including Hackensack and Ridgefield Park.
