Vehicle and service provided by staff.

Oct 2020

Cons:

I searched for a car rental pickup in Hyannis, MA. The search setting apparently also included rentals in Nantucket. So when I arrived to pick up the car, the car was not available in Hyannis. When I inquired, I learned my car rental pickup had been booked for Nantucket, a location I could not even get to without taking a ferry. Furthermore, my drop-off location was in NJ. So the notion that I was allowed to pickup a car on an island to be dropped off in NJ is absurd. This type of booking should not be allowed to even take place. Who would ever rent a car in Nantucket, pay to put a rental car on a ferry, then drop it off on the mainland. You need to put in booking restrictions against this type of reservation, so this does not occur in the future.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

The staff at the pickup were extremely unprofessional, the main Hertz customer service was the worst I have ever experienced, and the dropoff location had been closed several months ago.

Pros:

New, very comfortable car. Pleasant staff; easy pickup and drop-off.

Cons:

I expected it to be expensive, and it was ($112/day for a midsize), but probably less than other rentals on the island.

KAYAK

Pros:

Hertz was great, very friendly and helpful.

Cons:

carrentals.com who co-booked the rental with Kayak, did not provide Hertz with my contact information. This caused confusion when they tried to call me to tell me the location I had booked the car was closed and to head to a different location. I could not be reached so I showed up at the closed location and had to then catch a cab across town to the open location.

Top tips for renting a car in Nantucket

  • Car rentals in Nantucket allow you to explore the region at your comfort without having to wait for public transport, which can be time-consuming. Renting a car is also beneficial since you can travel anywhere with ease, at your own pace, and enjoy the change of scenery. This gives you comfort and peace of mind, especially if you’re in Nantucket for a vacation. With a nice vehicle from rental cars in Nantucket, you can conveniently visit places such as the Whaling Museum, the Great Point Lighthouse, among other attractions.
  • There are car rentals in Nantucket that operate within Nantucket Memorial Airport premises. One example is Hertz, with an office situated at the rental car counter, which can easily be seen from the Crosswinds Restaurants, as it is located at the south end of the main terminal. Other Nantucket car rentals, such as Avis, Budget, and another Hertz branch are located along the airport route, which is served by ACK Airport Shuttle Service buses that leave the airport every 20min from 10am to 6pm.
  • Nantucket is a small town with about 400 miles of well-maintained public roads. However, 313 miles of roads are privately owned, which are usually less maintained. To avoid accidents on such roads, follow traffic rules and drive at a reasonable speed. Also, during cold seasons, the roads are icy, making them slippery, and the weather foggy, which reduces visibility. When driving under such conditions, turn on the fog lights and maintain a safe distance between cars.
  • In Nantucket, rush hour is early in the morning from 5am to 8am and in the evening from 5pm to 6pm, on weekdays. To avoid the frustrations of getting stuck in traffic, we advise you to travel either before 5pm or after 6pm. In case you have to travel during peak hours, you can use Polposis Road, West Creek Road, or Williams Lane, which are usually less congested. Try to avoid intersections such as Surfside Road, at Vesper Lane, and Orange Street at Union Street.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Nantucket for $95 or less
  • Book your rental car in Nantucket at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in Nantucket are around -61% cheaper than other car types, on average
