KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Oneonta

  • Using car rentals in Oneonta offers several benefits over public transportation. An Oneonta car rental will give you the flexibility to explore the region at your own pace and on your own schedule. Unlike public transportation, which operates on rigid routes and schedules, rental cars will enable you to visit remote areas that may not be accessible by buses or trains within your own time frames. Oneonta's accessible attractions include Neahwa Park, the Community Arts Network of Oneonta, and the Swart-Wilcox House Museum. Moreover, car rentals in Oneonta are particularly advantageous for families or groups, as they offer vehicles with ample space and the ability to carry luggage, groceries, or outdoor equipment comfortably.
  • There are around five airports that serve Oneonta, including Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR), Albany International Airport (ALB), Stewart International Airport (SWF), Ithaca Tompkins International Airport (ITH), and Greater Binghamton Airport (BGM). You may choose to fly to any of these airports and find an Oneonta car rental. At SYR, car rental desks are situated on the first floor, center terminal, and pre-security checkpoint. ALB features several car rentals in Oneonta with counters in the baggage claim area of the terminal. At SWF, rental counters are situated in the terminal next to the baggage claim area. ITH features car rental counters inside the baggage claim area, and the rental cars are parked adjacent to the baggage claim area. At BGM, you'll access rental counters in the baggage claim area of the terminal.
  • Driving car rentals in Oneonta is generally smooth and organized as a result of the city's well-developed traffic rules and regulations governing the roadways. As you navigate the city's streets, you'll find that drivers obey speed limits, stop at intersections, and yield appropriately, contributing to order and safety. The streets feature clearly marked signage, aiding in navigation and ensuring that drivers are well informed about lane changes, turns, and parking zones. The presence of well-functioning traffic signals, pedestrian crossings, and designated bike lanes demonstrates the local authorities' emphasis on traffic management. When navigating the city in your Oneonta car rental, be cautious and adhere to the city's traffic regulations.
  • Driving car rentals in Oneonta can be quite difficult during rush hour. The city's rush hour occurs from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm During these times, major roads, including Main Street, Chestnut Street, and Market Street, are affected by heavy traffic as commuters, students, and local residents use these roads, creating congestion and slower travel speeds. To avoid rush hour traffic congestion, you might consider taking secondary roads such as Ford Avenue, River Street, or Lewis Street. These roads offer less traffic congestion and a more peaceful drive.
  • Book your rental car in Oneonta at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Oneonta are around -43% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving a car rental in Oneonta?

This drivetrain capability helps navigate the snowy and sometimes icy roads during the winter months, providing better traction and stability. Additionally, the vehicle has a balanced mix of fuel efficiency and ample interior space to accommodate both daily commutes and occasional outdoor activities. The compact SUV's higher ground clearance is also beneficial due to the potential for uneven terrain in some zones.

  • What is the speed limit for car rentals in Oneonta?

    The speed limits in Oneonta usually adhere to the standard limits set by the state of New York. In urban and residential areas, the speed limit is usually around 30 mph, unless otherwise posted. On the city's arterial roads and highways, the speed limit ranges from around 35 to 55 mph, depending on the specific road and the corresponding signage.

  • Where are the best places to park a car rental in Oneonta?

    The best places to park your Oneonta car rental are in the downtown area. The Municipal Parking Garage on Dietz Street is one of the great options, offering multi-level covered parking spaces.

Cons:

If they have to check my credit record, they should let me know before I pay online. I couldn't rent a car because I used a debit card and failed a credit check. I almost missed my DMV appointment because that, and the rental company refused to give me a refund. Fortunately, I finally got my license plate and didn't need to rent a car again.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

The staff was not friendly. She cancelled my reservation without notice and had nothing on record when I arrived. After speaking with her for about 10 minutes she all of sudden had a car for me. Said it would be double the rate I booked it at. I had no choice so did this. On the way I call the 800 number to mention this and they tell me she put the incorrect drop off location. I spend an hour on the phone with them to get the correct drop off location confirmed. The women in the store was also not wearing a mask (despite numerous signs indicated it was needed) and she was coughing... it looked like she rolled out of bed and ended up at the counter. She was rude and didn’t seem to have a care in the world. Also when I arrive in NY I find out the location closed at 3 and there is no drop box - this was NOT mentioned to me at pickup. I then have to park the car overnight in NYC (for $38) and return the next morning to turn in the keys and get my receipts. Staff in NYC when I arrived were helpful.

Cons:

I could not rent the car due to the polices not included in the fine print as I was renting the car. The price was way over how much the original cost stated on the web page. The credit check was also unbelievable being I used 3 different credit cards and none of them were accepted. They should also mention the fact that you will need a $200 hold before renting he car. That will help with you guys not getting any service; tricking people.
