KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Middletown

  • With car rentals in Middletown, you have the freedom to explore Middletown and the surrounding areas at your own pace. You can easily visit attractions such as Hartshorne Woods Park, Twin Lights Historic Site, Poricy Park, and Deep Cut Gardens without relying on public transportation. If you plan to take day trips or explore beyond Middletown, having a rental car opens up opportunities for exciting road trips to places like Asbury Park, Cape May, the Grounds for Sculpture, and you could even drive into New York City quite easily in your rental in a much quicker time than taking other forms of transportation.
  • If you want an airport location to pick up Middletown car rentals, one of your best choices is Newark International Airport (EWR). Finding your rental at this airport is easy with AirTrain. No matter which terminal you arrive at, take the train to the P3 station, where you will find not only all of the 11 or so major rental car companies at this airport but also all of the cars for rent are in this area as well. The ride on the train from the terminals is less than 5 minutes.
  • Some things to know before driving in car rentals in Middletown is that In New Jersey, it is illegal for drivers to pump their own gas. Gas stations are full-service, and attendants will pump the gas for you. New Jersey is known for its jughandle intersections. These are unique traffic setups where drivers must use a curved ramp on the right side of the road to make a left turn or a U-turn. New Jersey has several traffic circles, also known as roundabouts. These circular intersections require drivers to yield to traffic already in the circle and merge when it's safe to do so. Many major highways in New Jersey have tolls, especially the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike. Be prepared to pay tolls or consider getting an E-ZPass for more convenient toll payments.
  • Generally, between 7:00 am and 9:00 am on weekdays and between 4:30 pm and 6:30 pm, you often will experience heavy traffic. This is most pronounced on main roads like Route 35, Route 36, Route 520 (Newman Springs Road), and Route 516 (Kings Highway).  Traffic can be heavy during holidays, especially around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the summer months when people are traveling or going on vacation. You may find heavier traffic during popular events here, such as Middletown Arts Center's Art Walk, the Middletown Township 4th of July Parade, Middletown Day, and the Middletown Farmers' Market.
  • Book your rental car in Middletown at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Middletown are around 37% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Staff was efficient & process was smooth

Cons:

The outside of the truck was filthy. The windshield front & back had dead bugs caked on to it. We drove this to another state & it was very difficult to see until we stopped at a gas stop to literally scrub the junk off. When I picked it up I didn’t think it was anything was wrong because it was raining on & off so I thought it was pollen & would come off. The wipers were very insufficient & shows maintenance isn’t a normal routine. When I was packing the truck there was a bottle cap & hair tie in the back areas so cleaning isn’t a priority either. They seem to just shine and go.
