KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Union City

  • Union City car rentals provide flexibility and convenience, allowing visitors to explore the city and its surrounding areas at their own pace. Unlike alternative transport options like public transportation, renting a car ensures privacy and comfort during travel. It eliminates the need to rely on public transportation schedules or booking tours, giving you more control over your travel experience.

Pros:

We really appreciated the pick-up and drop off at different locations. Car was clean, comfortable, zippy and fuel-efficient. Staff inHoboken was friendly and efficient. It was nice to have the EZ pass for tolls.

Cons:

I was expecting a 4-door which would have been easier for us with 3 passengers. We were not sure how the charges would come to us using the EZ pass or whether there will be any extra fees for using it.

Pros:

Reserved a full-size car, and was given a very nice small SUV. Great car. Good customer service.

Cons:

Reserved the car for a 10 am pick up on memorial day weekend, and was told when we called to see if we could pick it up early that the car would be gone by 10 AM, so yes we needed to pick it up early. We would have been very upset to not have had a car available at our appointed pick up time. Drop off location in Hoboken did not open on time the morning we were dropping it off. A minor inconvenience.

Pros:

Good price unlimited miles. East pick up drop off service from Staff was awesome

Cons:

Windshield whipper fluid, any would be nice. I drove through a winter storm through the Catskills for 20 miles to get to a gas station to clean my windshield and buy fluid. Scariest moment I’ve had driving, like low fluid I get. This was bone dry note to sell probably the economy wasn’t the best choice to rent for the snow

I didn’t like anything because I never received any service or a vehicle. I was there on time maybe even 30 min before pick up but never got a vehicle I was told to wait atleast one hour and added to the wait list. So I went to eat by the time I got back they were closed for the day.

Cons:

Atleast notified the customer of anything.

Dec 2017

KAYAK

Cons:

I rented a car to go to my best friend's bridal fitting. When I went to pick up the car, I was told there were none available and I would have to wait at least an hour an a half. The on-site manager was completely unsympathetic. When I asked why there were a number of cars in the lot available, he said he couldn't give me any of those because they were all reserved (as my car was also supposed to be). He gave me the phone number for another manager, who was better, but the only solution was for me to drive to another Hertz location 20 minutes away to pick up a car. By the time I finally got a car, it was an hour and 20 minutes after my reservation time and I was 20 minutes further away from where I need to go, causing me to miss the appointment. I was also promised compensation for all of the issues, but have yet to receive anything and paid full price for my reservation. The car itself was also very dirty inside when I got it.
