KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Bridgeport

  • A car rental in Bridgeport gives you the flexibility to explore and discover the city at your convenience. Some places you must visit in the city are the Beardsley Zoo, Downtown Cabaret Theatre, and Discovery Museum. Furthermore, you can decide to take a long drive to other towns close to Bridgeport like Westport and Stratford. There are plenty of attractions in these towns to enjoy. All the traveling and exploration is much easier with a Bridgeport car rental.
  • On the majority of Bridgeport's roadways, you shouldn't count on drivers to obey the right-of-way rule. Drivers frequently make sudden cuts in front of other vehicles. Buses and huge vehicles should be watched closely since they frequently drive where they shouldn't. Maintaining lower speeds whenever possible and keeping an eye out for the vehicles in the other lanes is important when driving on highways with many lanes because unexpected lane switching is frequent. Bridgeport has several multilane highways.
  • Several airports can get you to Bridgeport. However, New Haven Airport is the closest airport for travelers flying to Bridgeport as it is 16 miles away. Several car rental companies have offices in Bridgeport Airport, such as Enterprise and National. The car rental booth is near the airport's parking lot C, within walking distance from the terminal.
  • There is no need for People with Reduced Mobility (PRMs) to be concerned about being unable to rent the car of their choice from any of the cheap car rentals in Bridgeport. The majority of car rental companies in Bridgeport, such as Enterprise, Avis, and Budget, include PRM-friendly accessories. As a PRM, you can ask for modifications to your vehicle, such as left foot accelerators, hand control capability, adaptive electronic controls, steering wheel extenders, dropped floors, raised roofs, and reduced-effort braking systems. The majority of rental car companies also provide surrogate drivers for an additional fee.
  • In a small city like Bridgeport, most people drive to work. The traffic is a little congested in the morning and the evening as people drive to and from work. Additionally, Bridgeport is in the middle of a convergence of highways, including interstate Routes 8 and 25. The city also gets busier and more crowded during summer due to many festivals and visitors to the zoo. All these factors contribute to traffic build-up in Bridgeport. Nonetheless, the congestion clears out quickly, and you won't spend hours in traffic.
  • Observe the stringent seat regulations that are in effect throughout Connecticut when using cheap car rentals in Bridgeport with your child. According to these regulations, a kid under the age of 3 or under 20 lbs. must always ride in a rear-facing convertible seat or an infant seat. Your child must always travel in a booster seat or any other certified child restraint device if they are between the ages of 1 and 6 or weigh less than 40 lbs. Depending on your child's age, you can always request any specific child seats from Bridgeport car rentals. But, there is a daily cost for each of these services.
  • While driving your car rental in Bridgeport, be weary of children prone to jaywalks. Additionally, watch for them as they get on and off their buses on roadways and follow the flashing signal light system. If you think you might get lost in the city as a new traveler, install a navigation system in your rental car to assist you.

Pros:

i reserved a car at a location that was apparently closed and someone called to let me know to pick it up at another location. that was very helpful as to not waste time.

Cons:

the dropoff location that i had selected was closed but nobody called to let me know so i wasted time and gas going to a closed location. when i got there, i tried the number and nobody at enterprise answered to help. i headed over to the address underneath the phone number and luckily it was open and i was able to drop off car. it would've been nice to have a call just letting me know that the location wasn't open.

Pros:

The drop off in white plains was great.

Cons:

The Fairfield location is terrible. There was only one person working there and she was extremely unpleasant. The store was very dirty. The car had not been cleaned....there were coffee drippings and debris in the car. The outside of the car was also filthy. The back right tire was at 7 pounds. We will avoid this location at all costs.

Pros:

Staff was friendly and helpful

Cons:

Maintenance on the vehicles are poor. The treads on both front wheels were way below what would be considered safe. The right front wheel also had a small air leak so i had to constantly fill it with air when available. They have a no smoking policy, however the vehicle had clear signs of smoking, from the headliner on the B pillar being discolored from smoke to obvious markings on the passenger seat and drivers side A pillar, as well as a slight smoke odor coming from the vents.

Reserved large suv weeks in advance and verified day prior to pick up. Received call 1 hour prior to scheduled pick up stating "unable to locate car". On phone for 30 min speaking to people who had no concept or explanation . Was told they routinely overbook which makes selective car types frequently unavailable no matter how long you book in advance. Would NEVER use this company again.
