KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Fairfield

  • Renting a car in Fairfield, CT has numerous benefits over public transport. First, you can get to your destination quickly because city buses make various stops along the journey. Again, you have the freedom to visit numerous places in and around the city. If you're driving, you can go to Nassau County Museum of Art, 30 miles southwest of Fairfield, to see stunning art displays. You can also visit Paugnut State Forest to hike 50 miles north of Fairfield via car.
  • You can find several car rentals near New York John F Kennedy International Airport. Fairfield car rentals at this airport are located near the baggage claim area at the terminal building. However, you must be 21 years or older and have a valid driving license to rent a car in Fairfield, CT. However, there aren't shuttle services at the airport's terminal buildings. It's available at the Federal Circle, and you can get there via Airtrain.
  • When driving rental cars in Fairfield, you need to know about the complete street policy in the city. This policy allows bicyclists, public transit riders, and pedestrians to use this street. Thus, drive carefully because these shared streets can be tricky, especially if you aren't used to them. Some streets, such as Post Road near Grasmere Ave., have pedestrian lights to alert them when it's safe to cross the road. Despite this, you should be careful when driving near pedestrian crossing zones.
  • Some roads can be challenging to drive on in Fairfield if you're in a hurry. For example, I-95, I-91, and I-84 are congested during rush hours between 4 pm and 7 pm Driving during winter in Fairfield can be difficult. Some roads, such as Alec Templeton Lane, may be inaccessible because of much snow. Again, light snow showers may affect the streets, making them slippery for cars to pass through. That's why you should ensure your rental vehicle has well-inflated tires, ensure your windshield is clear, and carry a first aid kit, especially when traveling with family.
  • Book your rental car in Fairfield at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff was rude and I had to wait outside because the place was small. They didn’t open the doors till 9:05 with a few people in front of me already waiting. When I got there the sales associate asked my name and drivers license and then immediately tells me he doesn’t have a car to rent me. So I told him I didn’t want to rent a car I reserved a SUV online. So then he looks up my reservation and tells me that he still doesn’t have an SUV to rent to me (the person before me has just dropped off an SUV) so I asked well what about that one he just returned. He said no because I have 13 other customers to rent to who already prepaid online. He didn’t offer me any other option but to walk out. Ruined my entire day

Cons:

Everything. For starters don’t allow customers to rent vehicles that aren’t available. Open the store at the right time. Don’t be rude to the customer and maybe look up the reservation before you assume what they are going to be renting. I could go on but that’s a good start.

KAYAK

Pros:

Drop off was very easy howerver, the rental agent was not friendly, most likely due to COVID-19.

Cons:

The car may have been sanitized but was not cleaned. I had to wash the front window due bugs covering the whole windshield left from the prior renter and it appeared someone spilled something (it actually looked like someone vomited in the vent) in the rear console vents which I cleaned with disinfecting wipes. Finally, I was suppose to get a Ford Edge and ended up with a GMC Terrain. Definitely not the same class vehicle.

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

i reserved a car at a location that was apparently closed and someone called to let me know to pick it up at another location. that was very helpful as to not waste time.

the dropoff location that i had selected was closed but nobody called to let me know so i wasted time and gas going to a closed location. when i got there, i tried the number and nobody at enterprise answered to help. i headed over to the address underneath the phone number and luckily it was open and i was able to drop off car. it would've been nice to have a call just letting me know that the location wasn't open.

Reserved large suv weeks in advance and verified day prior to pick up. Received call 1 hour prior to scheduled pick up stating "unable to locate car". On phone for 30 min speaking to people who had no concept or explanation . Was told they routinely overbook which makes selective car types frequently unavailable no matter how long you book in advance. Would NEVER use this company again.
