KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Springfield

  • Springfield, Massachusetts is well known for its breathtaking and historic scenery. You will want a cheap car rental in Springfield to take some unforgettable scenic drives. If you take Route 102 East of Stockbridge, you can get to Western Massachusetts' Route 20, renowned for its history and natural beauty. You can see huge trees, vibrant mountain terrain, and the Jacob's Ladder Trail. You might also want to check out the Botanical Garden or the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge. With your Springfield car rental, you could also drive up Route 6A into the world-famous Cape Cod.
  • A cheap car rental in Springfield is the way to go when considering how to get around. Why? One reason is that gas prices in Springfield tend to be lower than the national average, sometimes by as much as 20 cents. While you are driving around, as well as when you have to fill the tank before you return the car, Springfield is the place to be when you are gassing up your car.
  • Like cheap car rentals in Springfield, driving in Springfield can also be cheap. While the Massachusetts Turnpike has many toll gantries, you can avoid paying a toll in Springfield. Springfield is one of the few places where there is not a toll gantry at all the exits. If you get on the Mass Pike at Exit 7 and you get off at Exit 6, 5, or 4, then you will not incur a toll. The same is true if you travel between these four exits in any order.
  • Car rentals in Springfield allow greater access to suburban areas, which are not as walkable as the downtown area. These neighborhoods are generally more car-dependent than other parts of the city, as the public transit is less extensive in the suburbs. Springfield car rentals also give more convenient access to nearby attractions, such as a visit to Boston or the shores of the Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. The journey to Boston via car takes about 1h 30min, while the same trip via public transit takes nearly 6h and requires multiple transfers. Public transit stops in the general area of the Atlantic shore but rarely travels along the coast if you are hoping to experience several miles of shoreline.
  • Springfield is primarily served by the Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, but travelers may also arrive in Boston at General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport. At Bradley International (BDL), you can access each individual rental company via their free shuttle from the airport terminal. Be sure to know which company you are renting through when you fly because you will need to find the specific company shuttle. If you fly into Logan International (BOS), take the Massport airport shuttle to the rental car center for free.
  • Travelers who are driving car rentals in Springfield should be aware of pedestrians and cyclists as the city is working to develop more bike lanes and walkable neighborhoods. Springfield is known as the Crossroads of New England due to the heavy amount of cargo that passes through on freeways, the Connecticut River, and the many train routes that cross through the city. Because of this, drivers should be aware of large trucks when driving on the freeways and carefully check for oncoming trains at railroad crossings.
  • Though Springfield does not have a notable rush hour that will dramatically impact your travel times, it still has heavier traffic in the mornings and evenings. As one of the hubs for festivals, events, and tourism in the Pioneer Valley, Springfield can have sporadic traffic backups that travelers can avoid by checking event schedules if they are passing by an attraction, such as the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. As with most northeastern cities, Springfield experiences challenging weather in the winter months, particularly when nor’easter storms dump snow on roadways. If you are unfamiliar with driving in snow, consider delaying your travel for heavy snow, and drive cautiously if you need to drive in a storm.
  • Book your rental car in Springfield at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Springfield are around 23% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Springfield

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Springfield?

    If you are renting during the winter months, the recommended vehicle is an intermediate SUV with all-wheel drive. This will give you more control during winter driving but still allow you the maneuverability to navigate busy city streets during heavy traffic. All-wheel drive is easier to use for inexperienced winter drivers than four-wheel drive, as the rotation rate of the tires adjusts to your turns and makes the drive smoother.

  • What’s the speed limit in Springfield?

    The freeways surrounding Springfield have a speed limit of 55mph due to their proximity to urban regions. Within the city, most streets in residential and business districts have a speed limit of 25mph. Major roads, such as Liberty Street, have higher limits of 35mph to 45mph.

  • Where are the best places to park in Springfield?

    The Springfield Parking Authority operates eight parking garages and lots throughout the city, with rates of about $2 per hour and slightly higher or lower rates depending on proximity to the city center and the Union Street Train Depot. If you are parking on the street, meters have similar rates, but check that you are not parking on a snowplow route in the winter if you are planning to park overnight. You do not want to be stuck shoveling your car out of the snow.

  • How much is gas price in Springfield?

    The average gas price in Springfield is C$ 5.20 per litre over the past 30 days. Filling up a gas tank costs between C$ 62 and C$ 83, depending on the car size.

  • What is the most popular rental car in Springfield?

    Compact (Kia Soul or similar) is the most frequently booked rental car type in Springfield.

  • How much does a Special car rental cost in Springfield?

    A Special car rental in Springfield costs C$ 86 per day, on average.

  • Where can I rent a car in Springfield?

    Though the Westover Airport is just to the north of Springfield, there are no car rentals in the airport itself. However, there is an Enterprise Rent A Car and an All-Star Car And Truck Rental right outside the airport. There are car rental agencies scattered throughout Springfield, but there is a cluster of them in the south of the city, just south of US Highway 20, just on either side of the Connecticut River.

  • Where can I park my cheap car rental in Springfield for free?

    There are a number of inexpensive as well as free parking lots just off I -91 in downtown Springfield where you can park your Springfield car rental. Some free lots include Town Square Parking, between Bridge Street and Boland Way, Hampden Street Parking, on Hampden between Main Street and E. Columbus Avenue, and Way Finder Springfield Lot right near the intersection of Gridiron Street and Main Street.

Pros:

Rental was canceled

Cons:

We were unable to rent the car due to the insurance requirements for a 12 passenger van. Should have been stated in the rental process that regular car insurance does not transfer to a 12 passenger van and only those with special insurance or license are allowed to rent this size car. Very disappointed to find this out 2 days before our event.

I booked a car rental through kayak and went to pick up the car and Enterprise was closed. I couldn't get a hold of anyone through customer service or anything. Apparently Kayak doesn't keep up to date with hours at Enterprise, I was very upset and was stuck with no car after driving all the way there.

I went to Congress St in Springfield, MA to pick up the car I reserved and they did not have a car for me and the guy at the desk said, "Too bad!" -After three phone calls with not much help I was told I had to travel 45 minutes to another location and they wanted to charge me $40.00 more than my initial reservation. Finally things got resolved at the Bradley Airport in Windsor Locks, CT location, but I would not ever recommend Springfield Budget. Friends don't let friends rent from Budget! Avoid at all cost!!!
