KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Binghamton

  • While driving in Binghamton with a car rental is fun, it's worth noting that the city has a zero-tolerance policy for drunk driving. The legal BAC limit for driving in the United States is 0.08%. If your BAC level is at or above 0.08%, you are legally impaired and cannot operate a vehicle. New York State has a Zero tolerance law for drivers under the age of 21, which means that any driver under 21 years old who has a BAC level of 0.02% or higher can be charged with a DUI in Binghamton.
  • When renting a vehicle from the cheap car rentals in Binghamton, note that debit or prepaid cards may not be accepted for the required credit hold at pick-up. Even if you can use a debit card, additional requirements may be required. For example, Hertz requires proof of a valid return airline flight in addition to other forms of valid identification when using a debit card. However, debit cards may be used to pay for your rental car at the end of the reservation, regardless of which card was used for the pick-up. Be sure to refer to renewal payments and requirements before booking your rental.
  • Binghamton car rentals may offer renters a Personal Effects Coverage (PEC) program. It is designed to provide further insurance security when driving in Binghamton, and there is an additional charge for this service. However, you are not obligated to purchase this extra insurance coverage when renting a car, although the benefits it brings can offer a priceless level of reassurance. So, if you need additional coverage for your personal belongings and travel companions against risks of loss or damage, you should consider the car rental agencies that offer this coverage.
  • Exploring Binghamton, the Carousel Capital of the World is both fun and comfortable with the flexibility and convenience that a rental car adds to your stay in the city. Spice your visit up by visiting Recreation Park Carousel located on Laurel Ave. A nearly one-century-old carousel rests in the park along with exciting attractions, such as a bathhouse, a reflective pond, and bandshell concerts. If you have young travelers accompanying you, the Discovery Center of the Southern Tier on Morgan Road will be an ideal place where children can have fun and learn at the same time. Your Binghamton car will be an exemplary transport means if you plan to visit the Statue of Liberty in New York City. The figurine is a 3h driving distance from Binghamton.
  • If you fly into Binghamton through Greater Binghamton Airport, which is about 8 miles from the city, you’ll find various car rentals in Binghamton operating there. The airport’s Rental Car Center is on-site in the main terminal building. Therefore, you don’t need a Rental Car shuttle bus to get to the cars of companies like Hertz, Budget, Avis, and Enterprise parked outside the baggage claim area. You may also make a flight to Binghamton via Wilkes Barre Scranton International Airport. It operates roughly 54 miles from Binghamton. To locate its Rental Car Center, proceed to 100 Terminal Road, where car rentals like Avis, Budget, Enterprise, and Hertz offer their services. The center is a walking distance from the main terminal building and requires no rental car shuttle bus.
  • Like most New York cities, driving through Binghamton without a navigation system may be puzzling. Thus, be sure to have one installed in your vehicle from car rentals in Binghamton. The city allows skateboarding on streets, sidewalks, and some parks, so make sure you keep an eye out for your safety.
  • Binghamton’s morning rush hour usually checks in at around 6:30am. Traffic is present on most roads, especially on the NY-201 and NY-17 intersection. You might want to start driving at around 5:30am if traveling to a time-sensitive site, since the traffic doesn’t go away until approximately 8:30am. At about 3pm, the afternoon rush hour kicks in. Expect a traffic encounter at the Southern Tier Expressway interchange and Parkway. Some residential roads such as Court Street, Front Street, and Main Street may also clog up until 7pm. Binghamton may experience heavy snowfall in winters, so try to be as cautious as can be on the road.

3.6 Poor

Oct 2020

KAYAK

Cons:

When I arrived for pickup there was a sign on the door saying the office was closed and to drive to the airport an hour away for my vehicle. The confirmation email never said anything. No call from the office to say anything had changed. After a two hour drive and then 2 hours on the phone to talk to a human being to try to get some sort of refund I was unsuccessful because I had "prepaid" the reservation. Any other company would have been able to credit my account with some sort of refund to accommodate the inconvenience. Nope, not Hertz. A gift voucher was all that they would offer. Not sure I will use Hertz again even with a $50 voucher. Very poor communication

Cons:

A cleaner car would have been appreciated , considering how Hertz is promising "Every vehicle will be sealed and certified ‘Hertz Gold Standard Clean’ after undergoing a 15-point cleaning and sanitization process that follows U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines." Interior was dirty, the back of car covered in bird droppings. Very obvious this vehicle was never touched after last rental.

Pickup was excellent, drop off not so much. I dropped off at 5am, so there was no one around of course. My proven stems from trying to get details on the drop off. Something like this would have been helpful "For the Syracuse airport, follow the signs for rental car return, being careful to not go into long term parking. You will turn into the parking garage just before passenger drop off lanes. Once inside, for Avis, drive past the first few rows that say other rental companies. Find an open space in the Avis section and park. You will bring your rental agreement and keys(and your fuel receipt if you topped off gas) inside the terminal. You are supposed to write your mileage on the rental agreement, but I had no pen and neither did the Avis counter. Also the place I got gas didn't give me a receipt at the pump, so other than a full tank I had no proof I got gas, no pen to leave a note. You will most likely come in the center entrance of the terminal and Avis is to your left(north). The drop box for the rental agreement and keys is well marked"

Vehicle was a disaster. Trash left in the back seat and trunk. Vehicle reeked of weed. Vehicle maintenance not performed properly (required maintenance indicator was on for the duration of rental).Many additional fees not discussed beforehand. Also charged me extra because I picked up 46min early rather than let me know that was a thing and that maybe I should wait. Just the absolute worst.

Pros:

The rental agency was listed as being 'in terminal'.

Cons:

When I went to the Budget counter, they were closed and sign directed me to go to Avis counter with one agent and a line of people. When I finally got my car, I went out to find it was covered with at least 6" of snow on the entire car and all around the car. I went back to the counter and complained and then they sent someone out who cleaned only the windows, but not the roof nor the hood or trunk. Once I started driving, the snow fell from the roof into the rear window, blocking my view. I had no equipment to clean snow off a car and I wasn't dressed for such. Also, because the car was covered with snow, it was impossible to assess the vehicle for existing damage prior to my acceptance of the vehicle. When I went to drop off the car, the desk was closed with sign staying to record the mileage and drop the key into a lock box. Since it was raining hard and would take at least 5-8 minutes to go back into the rain to research the milage, I didn't do it. Also, there were no available empty spaces in the section of the lot that was listed as 'Budget', so I parked it in a Hertz parking spot, since no one was there to direct me in any way.
