Location information for New York

The city of New York in the eastern US is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world. It is home to instantly recognisable attractions such as the Statue of Liberty, Times Square and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Touring the city and the surrounding areas of New York State are best in self drive rentals. The best rates for vehicles are often located when you compare car hire online.

Transport

[transport]

JF Kennedy Airport is one of three airports serving the city. New York has great public transportation with its famed subway, buses and suburban trains linking most locations. The only trouble with these modes of transport is that they are invariably crowded. Car hire in New York is far more comfortable for seeing the sights, especially outside the central areas.

Car Hire New York

Driving your own vehicle provides the opportunity of going farther than Fifth Avenue and Central Manhattan. The Bronx Zoo, Coney Island Amusement Park, Long Island and Harriman State Park are among myriad draws within short drives of the city. Petrol is far cheaper here than in the UK and this allows for economical excursions. Avis, Hertz and Enterprise are among the well-known suppliers with offices in town.

Driving

For short trips the city's public transport suffices, but to get the best from the surrounding locality car rental in New York is definitely the best option. The city's grid-like road system is easy to navigate and ample signposts indicate routes to more distant destinations.

Things To See and Do

With so many sights in New York it would be hard to see them all. Two popular excursions are Long Island and taking the I-95 up the north shore of Long Island Sound. The 10 miles of fabulous sands at Jones Beach State Park and the American Airpower Museum are on Long Island. The I-95 gives access to Bridgeport and beaches such as Calf Pasture.

Best Time To Visit

New York endures hot summers and cold winters. The temperature is usually below 0°c from December to February and averages 30°C in July and August. Sporadic rain is liable at any time of year, and snow in winter. April and May or September to mid-October are the periods when New York is at its finest.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is 121CarHire.com the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
