All of the staff at pick up and drop off were very friendly and attentive. They didn’t have the hybrid we requested, so they gave us a midsized suv, which they tried to upsell us on before they told us they did not actually have the car we reserved. The exterior of the car they gave us was filthy, as if it had been dropped off from a long road trip and handed straight to us. The inside seemed worn out and dirty for a car that only had >60k miles, and smelled like it was sprayed with freshener moments before it was given to us. It was out of windshield washer fluid, which we had to stop and fill up. It had 3/4 of a tank of gas when it was given to us. The steering wheel vibrated the whole trip. The car seemed like it probably hadn’t been serviced in a long time. Overall, the staff was nice and the car got us to where we needed to go. But, it was a big disappointment to do a 6 hour drive in a dirty vehicle that smelled badly and drove poorly.
6.0 Good29 Nov 2021
The car was dirty and poorly maintained. The signs “maintenance required” and “oil maintenance required soon” were on and when I asked about it since my rental was for 10 days I was told the only thing I could do is go to another Avis location and hope they would have a car in my category available.

I received the car with 1/2 tank full and returned with 3/4 full, and Avis charged me $171.58 refueling fee. Had to call them and waste my time waiting for customer service on hold.

Easy pick up, car was in good condition. Drop off was disappointing. We arrived and the agent wasn't so friendly. I asked for a receipt and they said I needed to go into the office to get it, they said this while walking away and not even turning to address me. They didn't even thank us for our business, or more importantly point out how to get back to the terminal. Its not so easy since the signage and construction is confusing. Its so easy to be polite to people and I wish that had happened. At every other rental I've been able to get a receipt or been told the total of my charges so there are no surprises. Not this time.

Organization of the pick up line was chaotic. Halloween decorations (the cobweb material specifically) were a true nuisance and got all over my clothes. The car I picked up turned out to have an invalid parking pass so I had to wait to get a replacement car. In general the whole experience left me stressed out and slightly unclear about what I had already paid for and what it would cost to change my reservation or add to it. Drop off instructions were casually mentioned and should have been made clearer: in writing.

I had to answer the same questions that I already replied to online. My Avis advantage number couldn’t be used to expédiâtes me in the line for the Payless reservation, but there wasn’t a dedicated person to help with Payless customers.

The Dollar counter would not accept the “third-party” Allianz Global rental insurance. I did not have the time to call Allianz at the counter (which took nearly 50 minutes to complete the transaction that I already had a reservation for) when I did call Allianz, the automated answering system said it would be a 4+ hour hold time. I will be requesting a refund of my $121 dollars. Dollar charged me $299.50 for the same insurance.
10.0 Excellent9 Sep 2021
The ezpass toll additional fee ($22/day, $112/week for unlimited tolling) felt like a big rip off, since I only planned to spend around $10 tops in tolls during the week. I decided to risk not getting it and just avoided tolls all week. This was very easy to do, so I saved $112! Would recommend doing your research on what tolls you will actually end up driving through (probably not many, in the end!). Also skipped out on the liability and insurance, which are all extra fees at the counter (I have insurance through my credit card. The person behind the counter was not pleased with me, but I took the risk and it all worked out in the end!) Pickup and drop off were seamless. Was able to jump right on the Henry Hudson Parkway and was home in minutes. I can imagine pickup and drop off during rush hour times is a little more backed up bc Dollar shares the lot with a parking garage. The car was in great condition and was a very smooth ride. Overall, very pleased!

Pick up and drop off was indeed super easy.I normally don't opt for prepaid fuel but when the question of prepaid fuel came up I said that would be convenient since I didn't know of a gas station nearby (I have never rented a car from JFK Airport before). It turns out there is a gas station one block away from the rental drop off. It could not have been easier to get gas. Seems like the nice guy at the desk could have pointed that out.

Ace is trying to file a claim for a scratch on the vehicle that existed at pickup, and is persisting despite the clear photo I took of it at pickup. They were doing this to everyone in the return line ahead of me, too. They nickel-and-dime at every turn - there's a $6.95 a day 'transponder fee' for taking EZ-Pass toll roads (that's plus the tolls, which are expected) and they're strict about the dropoff time in a way I haven't found with any other car rental company I've used before, ever. They're also at an inconvenient location far away from JFK or the AirTrain - it's roughly a mile-long walk from the nearest Q10 bus station through a very rough neighborhood with very few people out on the street. It's nowhere near a subway station, that's the closest public transportation to or from there. I would not recommend Ace.

ACE left us without a car. Upon arriving at JFK and calling for a shuttle as we were instructed to do, we were informed by ACE that my wife had canceled our reservation for the car. She did not cancel the reservation. ACE informed us they had no other cars and could offer no further assistance. We had to go elsewhere and rent a car, with a significant price difference.

Pick up and drop off was extremely quick and easy! We picked up our vehicle at JFK on 9/4 late in the evening and dropped off our vehicle back at JFK on 9/6 early in the morning and every single staff member was kind and helpful. I wish I would’ve asked their names to include in this review. Great customer service and extremely friendly staff members!

No gps on board, return drop off adress on bill different from drop off location at the airport. Could have been better.

I just checked my bank account and I got charged $658.56 for my car rental. It should've been $408.56. Please correct this amount ASAP otherwise I will dispute the charge with Chase.

The staff was super helpful and friendly. One of the best experiences I've had picking up a car in NYC.I wish the tank was full when I picked it up. It's a bit more complex to return a tank at 5/8 than to return one that is full.

Top tips for hiring a car in New York

  • One of the major advantages of renting a car in New York City is that it makes the outlying boroughs much more accessible. For instance, places like Rockaway Beach in Queens, Red Hook in Brooklyn, and City Island in the Bronx are all much easier to reach via car than by public transportation.
  • For travelers with flights landing at LaGuardia Airport, all rental shuttles pick up and drop off from in front of Terminal A of the airport. As for JFK International Airport, rental car desks can be found on the Arrivals level of each terminal. At Newark International Airport, the car rental desks are found in Stations P2 and P3 on the AirTrain.
  • Rush hour is an undeniable part of life in New York City. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t be mitigated. Typically morning the busy morning traffic lasts from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., while the afternoon and evening traffic is usually from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Drivers should take care, though, that those are the busiest times, but often rush hour can start even earlier in the morning and last even later at night. Some of the main areas to avoid during rush hour include the Lincoln Tunnel and the Brooklyn Bridge.
  • Biking is very popular in New York City and drivers should remain careful and aware of the bikers around them. Make sure to always check your mirrors when turning right and when opening a door, as you never know when a biker could pop up behind you.
