Top tips for renting a car in Rochester

  • With a rental car you can drive from Rochester, NY to numerous attractions such as the Strong Museum and Seabreeze Amusement Park. Nearby cities including Buffalo, Geneva, and even Toronto, Canada can be easily reached by car. In less than two hours you can also drive to Niagara Falls, a hot tourist spot in both the United States and Canada.
  • Renting a car at Rochester International Airport is a necessity because the bus routes are limited in and around the city. Extremely convenient, its rental car station is right by the baggage claim, making it fast and easy for you to pick up both your luggage and car within minutes. Several rental car agencies are stationed here including Enterprise, Hertz, and Budget.
  • There is an inner loop that goes around the downtown area and connects to popular local sights like the sports arenas or museums. There is also an outer-loop that connects to state routes I-390 and I-590. Overall, driving around Rochester is pretty smooth and there is not a lot of traffic. However, in the winter months traffic can slow down because of snow and ice.
  • There is a rush hour in Rochester but it is minimal. The inner-loop, although it makes getting around town easier, can get a little congested during peak hours. This includes weekday mornings from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and in the evenings from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. So just plan to add 10 to 20 minutes to your drive if traveling during these hours.
