10.0 ExcellentJun 15 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly and very organized. They were ready for the Saturday morning crowd, kept the line moving very efficiently.
2.4 MediocreOct 2 2020
Pros: Staff was polite and return was quick.Cons: Very inefficient pick up that took an hour. I specifically requested a small vehicle which they didn’t have so got a regular sedan. During the hour that I waited, the car was sitting right there. Employees had not cleaned it and only right before I took possession were they in there disinfecting it. The car was dirty, smelled like weed. There were personal items belonging to someone in the trunk and a used mask under the driver’s seat. It looked like someone’s personal vehicle that had been rented out to me. All other cars in the facility looked good from afar - they were SUVs that had been washed and cleaned and had no damage. The car given to me had not been washed or cleaned, and had preexisting damage.
7.6 GoodSep 11 2020
Pros: Yes the staff was friendly and the drop off was easyCons: The quality of the vehicle
8.0 ExcellentAug 29 2020
Cons: Nothing I can think of,the whole experience was great and the staff was great
10.0 ExcellentNov 1 2019
Pros: They staff are always friendly and helpful! They make sure you always get what you want. Tino the store manager is the absolute best!Cons: This place is great!
10.0 ExcellentOct 15 2019
Cons: I love them and i love their professionalism and hospitality when you come there! Great prices too!
6.8 GoodJan 6 2019
good but problem with car computer...Cons: the car computer which should allow to have accurate information about the gasoline consumption wasn't accurate and couse me confusion about the real gasoline consumption . beacuse the car was only half loded (???? i dont know why? it should be fully loaded!) i needed to stop more time to fuel it before getting it back and finaly i returned it with more fuel than i need to....
2.0 MediocreOct 29 2017
Pros: I was not able to get the car rental because it did not mention that we to have the credit card and person driving had to match... also I tried to use my debit card and they told me I need a pay stub AND a utility bill (which I did not have on me) so not only was I angry about having to travel all the way back from where we came from but she also mentioned how there was no ez pass with the car, so we have to pay our own tolls. She was laughing the whole time (very unprofessional) I was not able to take the trip that I had planned with the rental car.Cons: Everything
6.0 GoodSep 24 2017
Reservations taken, not necessarily keptPros: The car was clean enough and comfortable. The gentleman who checked me in was very helpful.Cons: They didn't have my car ready and admitted that it was standard practice to try to upgrade people because they often don't have the right cars. The problem was that the cars they offered had terrible mileage and I was doing a LOT of driving. I ended up waiting 4 hours passed my scheduled pick up time to get my car.
4.0 OkayAug 15 2017
This location is bustedCons: I have rented from enterprise in the NYC area for 7+ years and never had an experience this bizarrely unpleasant. Pick up took over 45 min, there was also a long wait for drop off. The rules regarding deposit ($500 held on my credit card?), adding an additional driver (they insisted on every driver submitting their own credit card even though it wouldn't be charged... hmmm... what?!), the fact that they wouldn't go over any of the costs at the desk ("we can't do that until we have the vehicle" even though insurance, fuel charges, etc are ALL STANDARD), THE FACT THAT I NEEDED TO ADJUST MY PICK UP FROM AN AFTERNOON TO THE NEXT MORNING WAS IMPOSSIBLE & EVERY TIME I CALLED I GOT A DIFFERENT ANSWER AND WAS TOLD I WAS ALREADY SPEAKING TO THE MANAGER. In brief, worst experience I've had renting a car. Would love to hear a response from Enterprise Corporate.

10.0 ExcellentApr 28 2021
Pros: I really liked their attention to me and they were very friendlyCons: Everything was fine
8.0 ExcellentMar 14 2021
Pros: Friendly and attentive staff.Cons: Waited for 20-30 minutes before I was assisted with picking up the rental vehicle. However, the car I reserved was no longer available, so they upgraded me to an SUV without an extra charge. I was grateful.
10.0 ExcellentJan 24 2021
Cons: Everything was great, just lower the rates lol. Overall great service loved the car.
4.0 OkayDec 31 2020
Cons: I asked for a car that didn’t smell of smoke and was given one with extra air freshener but a smoky odor that emerged after I had been driving for about an hour. More importantly, the driver’s side windshield wiper broke off during a heavy rainstorm, and I could have had a serious accident. Between these problems and an issue with the previous car I rented from Hertz, I have yet to be given a penny of a refund because I made the mistake of prepaying. I will certainly not ever use Hertz again!
2.0 MediocreDec 22 2020
Cons: There was no windsheild wiper fluid in the vehicle or in the vehicle. When I drove in the highway i could not see cuz of the snow and the wipers without the fluid was a danger situation. I could have gotten in accident because of this. There should be everything in the vehicle and things in the back in case of emergencies such as this one.
2.0 MediocreAug 11 2020
Pros: Nothing, No one told us that the driver and payee had to be the same name.Cons: Work with your customers, or go out of business.
2.0 MediocreJul 21 2020
Pros: No staff was not friendlyCons: communication
10.0 ExcellentJun 23 2020
Cons: The interior inside was a little broken overall everything was good . Thank you
7.2 GoodMay 21 2020
Pros: Dropoff was super easy and quick!Cons: The selection of vehicles implied that I would get a "high-top" van which would have allowed me to get more room, but when I picked up I found out it was a regular van, and no room to move my bed etc. I also found out that there was no EasyPass in the van, making it impossible to travel on normal bridges and highways without doing cumbersome mail-in tolls.
2.0 MediocreMay 17 2020
Cons: Letting me there was no cars for rent before I went to go pick up a car that wasn’t even available

Top tips for renting a car in Bronx

  • There is much in and around the Bronx to discover, and the easiest and most convenient way is by car. Visit the Yankee Stadium in the southwest of the borough or Pelham Bay Park on the other side in the northeast. A car will give you the greatest freedom to explore everything the Bronx has to offer and to venture out beyond its borders along the Hudson River, to either Lower Manhattan or the coastline towards Connecticut.
  • The closest airport to the Bronx is LaGuardia Airport, about 10 miles from the Bronx’s center. Via the I-278 E, travelers will get to the center in about 20 minutes, but bear in mind that this route has tolls, so ask at the rental agency how to cover the fee if you’re unsure. Conveniently, there are various car rental agencies on the airport grounds, and shuttles bring travelers directly from terminal A to the rental center. There are also shuttle buses to terminal A, should you land at another terminal.
  • Driving in such a big city as New York can be daunting for some drivers, but it doesn’t have to be. True, the city can be congested and traffic is a permanent issue, but when adhering to the speed limits, driving defensively, and staying relaxed, there is no need to worry. There are many participants in the traffic of the Bronx, including pedestrians, cyclists, and public transport, so driving with extra attention is important.
  • Rush hour in New York can be intense and usually hits the hardest between 7-9 in the morning and 5-8pm in the evening. Evening rush hour tends to be even more clogged up, so planning to drive outside of these hours is advisable. Especially the I-90 Cross Bronx expressway can have long traffic jams in and out of the city; one possibility to circumnavigate it is by driving on the 84 instead.

  • For cruising through the city, it is recommended to opt for a compact car, as parking can be very challenging in the Bronx and a small car can squeeze into more spots. Additionally, a smaller car can also change lanes easier, which will make maneuvering through the city much less of a challenge.

  • In the Bronx there is a limit of 25 mph unless indicated otherwise. Driving defensively is generally a good rule of thumb and, although there are posted speed limits on highways, it is required to adapt your speed to the given traffic, weather, and road conditions. Most highways permit up to 55 or 65 mph, but in fog or ice it is pivotal to reduce speed.

  • The average price in the Bronx and the city of New York is around $3, but gas stations like Petroleum or Shell offer rates from $2.60. Finding a gas station can also be a challenge in the Bronx and the whole of New York, so ensure to start looking out for one well in advance.

  • Finding a parking spot in New York can be a hassle, so opting for accommodation with a parking space included is your best bet. However, there is also metered on-street parking in various places, marked with a sign. Garages and lots are also dotted around the city, including the Concourse Plaza Garage, which is about $12 per two hours, or the 164th Street Garage with a rate of approximately $7 per two hours.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car.
