KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Norwalk

  • The viability of a Norwalk car rental is inevitable. Your car rental is a good option to avoid pricey rideshares, shuttles, and inconvenient public transit. Since there are just a few bus routes in Norwalk, public transit is not the most effective way to move around the town. Car rentals also come in handy when you have luggage. Major attractions to visit in your Norwalk car rental include Maritime Aquarium, Lockwood-Matthews Mansion Museum, Sheffield Island Lighthouse, Calf Pasture Beach, and Stepping Stones Museum for Children.
  • If you wish to get behind the wheel of your Norwalk car rental once you alight at Igor I. Sikorsky Memorial Airport (BDR), you are in luck because the airline hub has an off-site rental center served by shuttles. Major rental agencies like Hertz are nestled at the Atlantic Aviation Center, 900 Great Meadow Rd. Once your documents have been cleared and completed the booking process, you will be directed to your Norwalk car rental.
  • If you are concerned about safety while driving your car rental in Norwalk, then there are a few tips you should remember. The region has a winter season, so book a Norcross car rental with all-season tires if you are visiting during this season. Also, stick to the major roads. Additionally, be observant while driving your car rental in Norwalk, as distracted drivers and unexpected pedestrians are common.
  • Norwalk’s high population and relatively high accident rate contribute to the city’s traffic congestion. Furthermore, the largest naval base in the world is housed in Norcross, which attracts many tourists, so the city and its highways stay busy. Steer clear of the roads during the rush hours (6:00 am to 8:00 am and 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm), or check traffic websites showing traffic conditions in significant thoroughfares before driving your car rental in Norwalk. Alternatively, you may avoid driving your Norwalk car rental on major thoroughfares like I-95 during these hours.

Pros:

The manager here is particularly good, always provides me with a reliable car, ready to go when I arrive for pick-up. Fast & easy. And they extended my rental period last-minute without any hassle, just a quick phone call.

Cons:

This is the first time they forgot to pick me up. The guy who arranged it was off work on the pick-up day, start of rental period, and apparently forgot to inform coworkers. They rectified it quickly, however.

Pros:

Service, including picking me up to get to Hertz office. The staff here are always very good.

Cons:

Summer rates are much more expensive. This office is not accepting Hertz rewards points I've earned for free weekend rental right now. And the rates from the Norwalk office are so much more expensive than from their Stamford office - I don't get why there's such a huge difference between 2 nearby offices, and cannot account for it by state taxes.

Dec 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

The location that Kayak provided with pinpoint was inaccurate. I finally found the place after asking local police officer. The car was dirty and beat up. It was very expensive for the quality. Finally, they charged me $15 gas charge without explanation. When I asked the desk, they said they automatically do this unless I show a gas receipt. The tank showed full but didn't have a receipt. I feel Budget is deceiptful

Cons:

Stop deceitful advertising

5.2 Fair

Pros:

Cons:

Dont make your customer set an appointment for pick up, confirm the pick up, then when i get there tell me there is no car and that there is nothing I can do except give me a car that I have to travel two towns and a 35 dollar uber to get to.

4.0 Mediocre

Jul 2018

KAYAK

Cons:

When we went to Norwalk to return the car, they tried to charge us for a big scratch on the car that the previous driver had made. When we picked up the car in Boston we informed the Budget representative at the exit that the car had a big scratch and then she wrote that in our papers. When we arrived to return the car in Norwalk they wanted to charge us for the scratch because we didn't have a pink slip from Budget in Boston stating that we were not responsible for the damage, even though the representative in Boston wrote it in our papers. The only reason why they didn't try to charge us in Norwalk was that we just happened to have signed up for the damage waiver insurance. This is terrible service.
