KAYAK

Pros:

Being this was my very first experience using Alamo, I was impressed with the ease of reserving, picking up, and returning a rental. Every staff member I encountered was professional, helpful, and courteous. The initial price of the rental was better than I had expected. I look forward to using Alamo again!

Cons:

The initial payent of the rental was low, but he final payment upon return was $20 more because we forgot to fill the tank! Overall our rental experience was excellent! My advice: be sure to gas up before returning the vehicle!

9.2 Excellent

Jan 2020

KAYAK

Cons:

Only suggestion / request would be to have the windows cleaned before rental. They were covered with the road salt solution which created a lot of glare from headlights at night. Not being used to the vehicle or the location, it was bit of a driving hazard.

Actually having the drop off location open and not charging me a fee to change locations because the original was closed

6.0 Good

Dec 2021

The pickup process was simple, but the drop off location had been temporarily closed without any notification. Because of this, I had to return my car to a different location and call for about an hour to be retroactively reimbursed, a really annoying process.

Office was closed when I got there. Plane was 1 hr late and office was already closed by that time (noon on Sat). Should not have been an option for me to rent at this facility given early closure on a Saturday.

The staff at Buffalo changed my rate on an upgrade instead of just an additional $10. I was very pleased with the drop off for the manager was able to correct the mistake that was done.

Cons:

The whole process of dropping off at a different location was good but please pay attention to the pickup location. Make sure you are getting what was quoted to you and save the email with your confirmation information. I questioned it before I left, but it wasn’t corrected but thankfully it was on the other end.

Dec 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

The car itself was a hybrid, so very economical. It was a nice drive also and had Apple CarPlay.

Cons:

The car I was given was switched at the last minute between the desk and the pick-up kiosk. This particular car looked like a family of 4 had a food fight in it, and it reaked of deodorizer and cigarette smoke. The stains were kind of embarrassing, but I didn’t have time to deal with the hassle of calling and swapping it out.

The whole experience was unhappy. The least they could have done, was call me to let me know that the car I rented, was not available. I had to find a ride all the way to the car rental agency, only to find that they did not have the car that I booked.

Top tips for renting a car in Buffalo

  • There is a lot to love about Buffalo in upstate New York and renting a car will give you the ability to see and do the most during your trip. If you are planning on making the short 25-mile drive north to Niagara Falls, a car will not only help you arrive quicker than public transport, but will also give you the opportunity to arrive early in the morning to avoid crowds of tourists. If you plan on watching a Buffalo Bills game, having access to a car will make the event far more enjoyable, as New Era Field is located on the outskirts of town and most easily accessed by the NY-5 Highway.
  • Buffalo Niagara International Airport is host to a number of major car rental companies with plenty of options to help make your decision easy. Browse the thorough list to find the company that best suits your needs using KAYAK, then simply proceed from the baggage claim across the road to the car rental counters to pick up the keys. If you are planning on heading straight to Niagara Falls, consider stopping by the wineries to enjoy the small village charm that Niagara-on-the-Lake has to offer.
  • The fresh climate and dense parklands around Buffalo make it a popular city for cycling and other leisure activities. Be mindful of bike lanes and cyclists you share the road with; it is always best to provide more room than you think is necessary to create a safer environment.
  • If you are not used to driving in the snow and are planning a trip to Buffalo, it is smart to familiarize yourself with some winter driving tips sooner rather than later. Heavy snowfall is common in Buffalo during the winter months and it is important that you regularly check the latest weather forecast using radio or online resources. Snow on the roads will mean that your tires have less traction, making it more important than ever to brake early and reduce speed. It is also not advisable to use cruise control in any vehicle while there is snow on the roads.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Buffalo for $64 or less
  • Book your rental car in Buffalo at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Buffalo are around 9% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Luxury rental cars in Buffalo are around 53% cheaper than other car types, on average
