KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Boston

  • Boston city is surrounded by amazing attractions located in its neighboring cities. These are ideal weekend getaway venues for most people looking to relax and enjoy some adventure. Consider getting a car rental in Boston, MA, to visit Mary O’Malley Waterfront Park with friends and family. It will take approximately 12 minutes to get from Boston city center to the park, which is about 4.6 miles away, using the US- 1 N route. On the other hand, a public bus will take longer as you will arrive at your destination after about an hour.
  • Boston City welcomes cyclists to cycle on roads that are traveled by vehicles. It would be in your best interest to be keen on cyclists as you drive on the streets. Cyclists sometimes run red lights and hop from cycle tracks to roads when crossing. When approaching junctions and pedestrian crossings, ensure you are clear before proceeding to avoid injuring cyclists and pedestrians. Otherwise, you could secure huge fines or jail time when you break traffic laws. It can be a little tricky if your car rental has a faulty insurance cover. Be sure to drive out of the pick0up point when your insurance is in order.
  • Boston has plenty of vibrant nightlife. You can enjoy such fun activities at Tunnel, Royale, Jillian’s at Lucky Strike, Icon, and Banshee Bar Boston, among many others. When visiting this city to enjoy such, consider getting by using a rental car. Boston car rentals make it easy and fast to get from one nightlife venue to the next. For instance, it will take about 18 minutes to get to Banshee Bar Boston from Jillian’s at Lucky Strike instead of approximately 40 minutes by a public bus.
  • Rent a car during your stay in Boston and gain ultimate flexibility to explore not only the vibrant city but also the surrounding areas while you’re there, such as Connecticut or New Hampshire. Opting for a rental car will make trips to destinations further out of the city center far easier, for instance the Foxboro Football Stadium, which is 28 miles from Boston and by car can be conveniently reached in half an hour.
  • Boston International Airport has a Car Rental Center which features a 4-level garage for the abundance of cars on offer and can be reached by the airport’s free shuttle service. The shuttle bus leaves from all terminals every 5-6 minutes. The buses can be found at the lower level of every terminal and are blue and white. In the Rental Center, there are various different rental services including Zipcar, Entertainment, Avis or E-Z Rent-A-Car, so it should be no hassle to find the perfect ride to further destinations.
  • Boston has a lot of traffic and navigating yourself through the many intersections can be confusing at times, however navigation systems can be easily added to a rental car and this will help you reach further destinations without any problems. Boston’s pedestrians are known to jaywalk and cyclists regularly don’t adhere to the traffic light regulations, so paying extra attention and double-checking for pedestrians and cyclists while driving is very important.
  • Boston is one of the cities with the worst rush hour in the US, so try to avoid it by going to your destination before or after (rush hour is most intense approximately between 5pm and 6pm on weekdays). Especially the intersections along Interstate 93 and the Route 128 are known to be clogged with traffic and should be avoided during rush hour times altogether if possible, as alternative side roads are also congested during these times. Also bear in mind that winters can bring snow and ice to Boston, and you should drive extra carefully.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Boston for $47 or less
  • Book your rental car in Boston at least 3 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Boston are around 3% cheaper than other car types, on average

I booked a rental and set the pickup time through Kayak. There was zero mention of the hours for the pickup location and when I arrived at 5 (my scheduled time) I was unable to obtain the vehicle since it was closed. This required me to argue with enterprise on the phone to get the reservation cancelled, additional charges, and then I had to pay for Uber to drive me to the next rental car location which was 24 hours- that was a 3 hour Uber ride.

Pros:

The check-out person at the garage was very nice.

Cons:

We waited in line for almost 30 minutes to get our car, and the rep, who was very nice, moved at a snails pace. By the time we got to our car, we had to wait another 10+ minutes as there was a line of cars getting checked out to leave the garage. In the end, it took 90 minutes in total from the time I got off my plane until I left the garage with my car.

KAYAK

Pros:

Was economical. Car was fine, pretty typical rental process.

Cons:

Employees are trained to try to get you to purchase all the useless extras. The counter pickup experience is very slow, with the process sometimes taking 20-30 minutes for a single customer as they try to convince them that the insurance and extras are worth it. It's not that much different than other rental places, but definitely slower and slightly more obnoxious. Still, I'll always go with the cheapest rental.

Pros:

Good price, nice car

Cons:

Our flight was changed due to a storm and when I called Advantage, the phone agent said as long as we picked it up within 24 hours of our original reservation, the car would be held for us and no changes needed to be made for the reservation. However, when we arrived, with our young children who had just traveled by plane, the car had NOT been held for us and we'd been marked down as a "no show." When we told the agent at the desk (Alexandra Garcia in Boston) that we'd called ahead, she said we could pay extra for a more expensive car, but she took no responsibility for the problem and was incredibly rude. What a horribly disappointing experience.

The booking you gave me was not in the airport and the pickup time approved and suggested by your booking service was when the Hertz location was closed so I was unable to pick up the reserved vehicle.

Everything about the pick up was a hot mess. It was a small side business of a car repair shop on the south side of Boston. There seemed to be one woman who was in charge taking calls and handling customers who were there to pick up cars. We had to wait for well over 1/2 hour to be helped. At one point there were 6 of us in a chaotic “office” about the size of a large closet. When we finally got our car it seemed to have been pretty much just sprayed with air freshener and that’s it. They were careful about taking pics of all damage/marks on the car. The young guy was polite—no issues. But after we drove away we noticed how filthy the windshield was including many circles from people mounting phone holders. Also the back right tire was low—we had to add air. And there was an alert on the dashboard screen that read “maintenance—oil and filter”. ??? The car ran fine and was comfortable but for almost $1000 it was an unacceptable experience.

Was quoted a much cheaper price online and when I arrived it went from 143 to 600 including the hold on card then the car was a base model Chevy spark I asked for a refund and then they tried with other cars but they weren’t charged, so I went over to hertz and got a Tesla model x for 280 and a 200 dollar hold… would not recommend budget

Our pickup experience was horrible!! At first, the man I spoke with was very nice and picking up the car was easy. I installed the car seat (ridiculous they charge for these, they are legally required for safety) and went to pick up my husband and son at our hotel. When we tried to get my son in the seat, we realized the straps would not tighten properly on the seat. The drivers seat was also too high to the ceiling for my torso height causing my view of the road to be blocked by the rear view mirror. We returned to the rental counter to get a new car seat and swap vehicles. It was 10:05 am or so at this point. We did not get on the road until 11:30AM due to so much back and forth trying to do a simple car seat and vehicle swap. We were repeatedly told to go to the wrong area for assistance, and had to drive through the Boston airport property each time to get there only to be told nobody could help us. It was extremely frustrating and delayed our trip by hours. Our poor toddler was stuck in his car seat for way more time than necessary as a result. Horrible experience.

We rented a compact SUV to be picked up on Friday at 7PM. We arrived to the rental car center to find no lines at all other vendors and a line of what had to be 100 people waiting for cars at Thrifty. There was one poor employee that looked like he was going to cry. The line was long because they had no cars. We received no notification that there were no cars. We were driving at least two hours north to New Hampshire so we made a whole new reservation with Avis. I have been told I can submit that reservation to make up for the difference in price for the purchase at Thrifty. How is this ok when they were significantly overbooked and had no product?! Will never book this way again.

First off I ordered an intermediate suv from you purposely not picking an electric one for which you had options. However you switched me to price line and price line downgraded my car to impact electric suv. I spent 2 hours on the phone. With them no resolve. After waiting 1 hour I. The rental line The rental company convinced me to pay them to “upgrade” back to the intermediate suv. The upgrade was more than the original rental but I had no choice since an electric wasn’t going to work and price line was solving nothing despite the fact I have the original order screen shot showing I purchased an intermediate suv. So we get ti the pickup area they only have electric sitting there and are pushing people to take them. They have gas cars but are keeping them offsite. Waiting their anouthet hour before we were given a vehicle in the end after paying for an intermediate suv 2 times over we were given a Chevy Malibu. A car not even an suv. I Will never do business with Dollar, price line or kayak again. The only real lose is Kayak I have been a customer for 15 years but after this I now longer can trust I’ll be getting what I paid for. My suggestion to you is don’t do business with others you can’t trust because it makes all the search variables you have useless and loses your customers trust.
