KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Niagara Falls

  • You can enjoy the comfort of exploring the attractions found in Niagara Falls as well as those found beyond the city when you rent a vehicle. For example, you can explore Niagara Falls State Park, Goat Island’s Cave of Winds, and Old Fort Niagara, located within Niagara Falls. Additionally, opting for car rentals in Niagara Falls will see you extend your trip to further destinations, such as the Albright- Knox Art Gallery, which is approximately 17.7 miles from Niagara Falls, NY.
  • Many tourists from the United States cross the border into Canada using cheap car rentals in Niagara Falls. There is mutual recognition of auto insurance between the United States and Canada, but you should confirm your coverage from your provider and request documentation before you travel. Remember to carry any valid ID like a US passport, Enhanced Driver's License, visa (if necessary), or NEXUS card. When traveling with children, have their original birth certificates, supporting documents for custody, and notarized letters signed by custodial parents (for the kids that are not yours). You might be asked to show vaccination certificates if you have pets.
  • After landing at the Niagara Falls Airport, your best bet towards exploring the city or arriving at your set destinations within the city fast lies in securing a rental car. You can rent a vehicle at the airport. Some renowned car rental agencies at the airport include Hertz, Alamo, and Enterprise. These are located at 2035 Niagara Falls Blvd and feature many vehicles such as economy, compact, SUVs, and minivans, among others.
  • The region is served by toll roads such as Rainbow International Bridge and Whirlpool Rapids Bridge. At each toll gate is an electronic toll collection system known as the E-ZPass system, which helps ease traffic congestion. When collecting your car keys at Niagara Falls car rentals, you may seek assistance at the rental desk to create an E-ZPass account and install an E-ZPass to allow you to drive through the toll. Toll booths only accept US Dollars for cash payments.
  • The city is known to have cyclists who share the road with drivers. Cyclists have the right of way and should be treated like fellow drivers. For instance, always indicate before overtaking them and give way to them when they have the right of way. Finally, chances are you’ll encounter aggressive drivers in this city who do not always give way at some intersections. Therefore, you’ll have to be cautious when driving on the streets in your car rentals in Niagara Falls.
  • Before hiring cheap car rentals in Niagara Falls, NY, ensure you know the state's traffic rules. Always keep right when driving and use the left lane when overtaking. It is your responsibility to see that all passengers have seat belts. Also, keep your distance from the vehicle ahead of you and check out for pedestrians whether at the marked or unmarked crosswalks.
  • Like many cities, Niagara Falls experiences rush hour traffic, and maneuvering car rentals in Niagara Falls can be hectic. Rush hour is usually between 6.30 am, and 9 am on weekdays. Avoid Queen Street at such times as you can end up arriving late at your destination. One way to beat such traffic is by using your GPS navigation system. You’ll identify routes free of traffic and can get you to your destination faster.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Niagara Falls?

    Niagara Falls, NY, features tarmacked roads with wide lanes. There are barely narrow streets in the city. Therefore, a standard sedan is recommended for regular use within the city. These tarmacked roads can become slippery during winter. Hence, consider getting an SUV during winter to ensure easy navigation and reduce the chances of getting stuck in the snow. Additionally, these vehicles can effectively navigate all streets within the city without getting stuck or scratched.

  • What are the applicable children's safety seat rules in Niagara Falls, NY?

    If you travel with children, add baby car seats to your rental budget for the safety of your little ones. Children below the age of four need safety seats, while those weighing 40 - 100 pounds (up to 6 years) should be restrained in booster seats. Shoulder and lap seat belts are required for children over 100 pounds. You can request children's safety seats when you book your car rental.

  • What’s the speed limit in Niagara Falls?

    When driving Niagara Falls car rentals, it is essential to note that the speed limit is often 55 mph on roads, which has not been indicated. Most drivers always find themselves on the wrong side of the law on such roads when they are ticketed for driving over the speed limit. The Niagara Falls Boulevard passing through Amherst and Tonawanda Town has a speed limit of 45– 40 mph. This is effective between the Niagara County line and I-290. Therefore, watch out for the speed limit signs when driving through the roads in Niagara Falls in your rental car to avoid trouble with the law.

  • Are there restrictions for young drivers who want to rent vehicles in Niagara Falls?

    Car hire companies only give out their vehicles to licensed drivers aged 18 years and above. Young drivers between the ages of 21 and 24 should be aware of the requirements companies have set for them. They must have valid driver's licenses with at least one year of driving experience. A surcharge may apply, and the amount differs from provider to provider. Younger drivers might be denied specific cars, such as full-size SUVs, minivans, specialty cars, and premium SUVs, depending on the terms and conditions of the rental agreement.

  • Where are the best places to park in Niagara Falls?

    When you are aboard your rental car in Niagara Falls, you’ll need to park it once you get to your destination. Most lots allow parking at a fee upon entry. You can park your vehicle at the Niagara Falls Visitor Center Parking Lot 1, City Parking Lot on 28th Street, or Premium Parking- P5101. In addition, free parking can be found at the curbside on Old Main Street and Buffalo Avenue, as well as the Power Plant Ruins. Therefore, depending on your destination, you can always find an ideal parking spot to leave your rental car. However, ensure you understand the parking policies of the lot to avoid getting your vehicle towed.

We would not know how the cat was as the location did not have a car for us. We were traveling with a family with kids and seniors, who had walked a mile to pick up the car. The guy behind the counter had no interest in giving us the car and had zero empathy, when we pointed out to him that he has several cars in the lot we were told they were out for maintenance. Lucky for us enterprise was nearby and both rentals from enterprise were good experiences.

We expected to rent a Toyota RAV4 like was shown on the rental website. Instead, we were only offered a Jeep Compass which is quite inferior to the RAV4. The return was okay except we arrived just past the closing time due to road closures in Quebec City. The attendant was closing out for the day but said we would get a credit statement sent to our email address. None has been received to date.

Pros:

Cons:

When I dropped off the car I had made sure everything was nice and clean and filled up the tank more than I needed to in order to be as courteous as possible. When the staff member came back in from inspecting the car he claimed there was a stone chip in the windshield. I asked him to show me because I did not see anything. He pointed to a bug splatter. We argued but it didn't matter. I wrote a claim saying that I disagreed. I am concerned that some crazy charge is going to end up on my card that is not valid. Worst car rental experience I have ever had.

They gave me a car that wasn't cleaned or disinfected. I found a rental agreement and covid mask from last renter in center console of rental car. Took picture of contents of center console...covid mask/paperwork. And I still have the rental agreement from last renter. This is not the time to skip cleaning (COVID). Website states special cleaning??????? I had my elderly mother in car the first day. Would have never let her into rental if Id known at that time it wasnt cleaned..Brought this to their attention when dropping off car and they said call customer service like it was a non issue. I have have a open complaint with avis. Case # 46378720
