KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Groton

  • Using public transportation is less reliable than using car hire in Groton. A hire car guarantees convenience, meaning you can travel to any place whenever you want and make any number of stops. You will also find a Groton hire car cost-effective if you travel with a group of people. You can enjoy the rich history of Groton or travel to neighbouring cities within 200 miles, such as Boston, New York, Newark, Jersey City, and Philadelphia.
  • If you land at Tweed-New Haven Airport (HVN), roughly 43 miles away from Groton, you will need transportation means. Walking and public transportation are not exactly convenient ways to move between attractions in the city, so using a hire car provides a quick way for you to get to Groton and any other location. You can find Groton car hire agencies on Burr Street, located inside the airport. Each car hire company has its fleet nearby for easy access. Available companies include National, Budget, Avis, Priceless, Enterprise, and Sunnycars.
  • It is important to follow all traffic rules when using car hire in Groton, such as speed limits, stop signs, and give-way signs. If it is your first time in Groton, we advise you to learn the standard traffic rules. Remember that in the USA, you drive on the right-hand side of the road, unlike in the UK. This may take some getting used to, and a high level of awareness is necessary.
  • The roads in Groton are generally in good condition and are designed to handle traffic flow. However, the roads can get congested, especially during weekdays when people are going to and leaving work or school. The rush hour usually is from 07:00 to 09:00 and 16:00 to 18:00. If you plan to use car hire in Groton within or outside the city, consider driving during the day after and before the morning and evening rush hour. Avoid Boston Post Road (Route 1) and Interstate 95, as they experience high congestion.
  • Book your rental car in Groton at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Supplier choice rental cars in Groton are around 51% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Groton?

    Consider the vehicle you choose depending on the time you travel to Groton. Typically, it gets snowy between December and February, so if you travel during that time, you should go for a larger car because of its traction and higher ground clearance. However, small cars are great for manoeuvring and parking in small spaces. They are also cheaper and great if you are travelling on a budget.

  • What’s the speed limit in Groton?

    Groton has set different speed limits for different roads, so keep an eye out for them. On major roads and highways, the speed limit is 65 mph, while in built-up zones like the urban areas of Groton, the speed limit goes down to 25 mph because of increased pedestrian activities. In residential areas, near playgrounds, and in school zones, the limit further decreases to 20 mph for children’s safety.

  • Where are the best places to park in Groton?

    Finding a parking space in Groton is not hard. However, it is regulated by local laws and regulations that you must adhere to. There are on-street car parks, off-street car parks, and disabled parking to ensure a great travel experience for all visitors. Consider parking in on-street car parks if you need to stop quickly in the city. However, suppose you are looking to save money on parking or to avoid congestion, park in off-street car parks and explore the city centre on foot. In that case, you can park for free at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force and Country Inn and Suites by Radisson if you are a customer.

The staff was nice. However the vehicle was dirty and returned vehicle earl by several hours but still counted as a day by Avis. So no price adjustment. The phone line to Groton -Avis does not work but only rings. It’s never busy there so surprised no one ever answers.

Car had a hole in the tire, so I had to drive the whole way on a flat tire. Also, the rental center was closed when I got there. I returned the rental to their 24 hour center instead, and they charged me $200.

Cons:

When I went to pick up the car the guy behind the front desk was more interested in watching tv and getting off early then helping me get the paperwork and car pick up( pick up was at 1700 and they are open till 1800)When I got the keys and was doing a walk around the clerk was already out the door and zooming off in his personal vehicle. The rental wasn't cleaned that well, there was trash and receipts from the previous driver. When I dropped the car off one of their people jumped in the rental and left before I could go over the car with them.

Everything was fine but the car smelled of cigarettes. And I had no option to select a preferred car that was available like most car rental agencies do.

Only one person on staff - she was on the phone when I came in but she helped me as soon as she got off.

One other staff person would have made the pick-up faster.

Do not go to this Hertz if possible. Booked on Kayak for 1 day. This hertz is closed on Sundays so I had to pay for 2 days even though I only used the car for 24 hours. Very frustrating. The car also smelled like smoke and was extremely dirty.

Made a reservation for a car to transport my 80 year old mother who, while undergoing cancer treatments, fell and broke her femur. She had recovered and we needed a large sedan so she could easily get in and out. Called day before and confirmed with agent that we were all set with a sedan. Showed up for pick up and they said the only vehicle left was a large SUV that my Mom couldn’t possibly get up into. Asked the agent what she recommended I do and she provide no assistance. No offer to call around and check inventory at other locations. Nothing. Just a poor attitude. No empathy at all for my situation. Conclusion: rent with Hertz and that’s all you’ll get…a whole lot of HURTS!!!

The car was too small for what we needed it for. It was dangerous on the highway because of its size the large trucks couldn’t see us and we were afraid for our safety. We tried to upgrade the car to get something bigger at a different location and were told they couldn’t help us and that it wasn’t their problem. There were no other cars available to rent In our area so we couldn’t cancel our rental and get something to else. When we called for help we were told to us the app which didn’t work and the app told us to call a rental location for help. Absolutely awful experience and we will never rent from Hertz again. If Hertz continues to treat their customers like this they will go out of business. Very disappointed.
