Top tips for renting a car in New York

  • If you are driving in New York City, it is important to know the difference between “parking” and “standing.” “No Parking” means you can’t leave your vehicle, but you can stop temporarily to unload or load passengers or goods. “No Standing” means only a brief stop is allowed for loading or unloading passengers. Another regulation is the requirement of child safety seats for all children under the age of four, and booster seats for children up to the age of eight.
  • If you’re planning on driving primarily in New York City, it can be beneficial to rent a compact car to make parking and navigating through traffic easier to manage. Parking can be a hassle on busy city streets, so having a car with a rearview camera may be helpful. If you plan on doing most of your driving outside of the city, then it is much better to book a rental car based on the size of your party and your preferred style of car.
  • New York is known for having snowy winters. If you are traveling during the months of December to March, it may be best to ask for an all-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive vehicle. It is important to note that in certain snow conditions, snow chains may be required in New York State, but many rental car companies do not allow chains to be used on their vehicles. Make sure to check with different companies on their policies.
  • Parking on city streets in New York State, especially those in New York City, requires paying attention to many different regulations about which side of the street you can park on, on which day, and at what time. The rules are clearly posted, but always double-check before you leave your rental car. Remember, you’ll be held responsible for paying any tickets you receive on your rental car.
