Car hire excess insurance in New York

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some New York car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in New York.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your New York car rental.

Pros: The lady at pickup was very friendlyCons: I am a gold member and for the first time of my life I was charged for dog hair $140! I had put a bed sheet on the back seat and we only spent about 4 hours in the car. The guy said because people have allergies. Don’t rent to people who have dogs then or be honest about the pet fee ahead of time.

Pros: Pickup and drop off easy. JFK is JFK so getting in and out of airport less than ideal.
10.0 Excellent28 Apr 2021
Pros: i came here after my reservation with ACE fell through - these guys brought me an upgrade in about 5 minutes despite not even having a registration for more than half an hour. was really impressed, & that's not something i'm used to saying about car rental places.Cons: one "invisible bill", possibly linked to a toll bridge...or is that troll bridge? hmm

8.0 Excellent22 Feb 2021
Pros: Pick-up and drop-off was a fairly simple process.Cons: When we received our car, the tire pressure light was on. We connected with an employee who filled the tires with air. When finished, the light was still on, but the employee said that "it's because the tires need some time to warm up" (it had snowed two days in a row previously). We had a car for a total of three days and two nights. The tire pressure light never turned off. I wish the employee had taken more care to look into the issue and/or escalate the matter so that we could receive a new car.
6.0 Good27 Dec 2020
Cons: The rental cost me $1000 for three days in a standard car. That is baldfaced price gouging. I shouldn’t have paid over $500 for that rental. Payless my ass.
2.0 Mediocre21 Dec 2020
Pros: They ran out of cars, I waited 3 hours after my booking time to get a car
2.0 Mediocre6 Nov 2020
Cons: I reserved a compact car but when I arrived, only trucks were available. I didn't want to drive such a large vehicle so canceled my reservation and paid for a new one from the rental company at the next counter.
6.8 Good26 Oct 2020
Pros: The car worked perfectly.Cons: Pick up took a very long time and delayed me about 40 minutes.

4.0 Okay25 May 2020
Pros: Pick staff were friendly but at drop off the manager was disrespectful and rude. We need to use a restroom and the manager refused, saying that since we dropped off the car we were no longer customers and could care less if we needed to use the restroom. I was shocked at that response.Cons: The vehicle was dirty and had a sticky film in the inside of the driver side window. They didn’t have our reserved car class and we were given a minivan. Plus the utter disrespect and rudeness at drop off was unacceptable.

Pros: Staff was very helpful.Cons: Car had some wear & tear.. the price could have been lower to reflect the condition of the car.
2.0 Mediocre25 Apr 2020
Cons: Car was damaged in all 4 quarters at pickup. Also had a nail in one tire. They wouldn't answer the phone when I called to report it 5 min after pickup.
2.0 Mediocre24 Apr 2020
Cons: I was charged for a car I didn’t use. And now I cannot get a refund now matter how hard I try.
2.0 Mediocre22 Mar 2020
Pros: Location did not have car when I arrived, had to wait for about four hours at rental car location for a car. Once I picked up the car is smelled heavily of marijuana smoke, no discount was offered. Rental car location did not clean car, I had to disinfect the car myself. When I tried to return the car I called the location multiple times and they did not pick up, instead they sent me an email address to contact to contact the agency, I emails and have not heard anything back yet (it’s been two days). Horrible experience, I will not be using advantage again.
8.4 Excellent21 Jan 2020
Pros: Pick up and drop off was indeed super easy.Cons: 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.
2.0 Mediocre9 Dec 2019
Cons: They had no cars. We had to call another company while we were waiting there for over 40 minutes with no cars in sight and others in line to get cars ahead of us.
5.2 Okay25 Nov 2019
Pros: Staff very friendly and helpful on both pickup and drop offCons: Car was in very poor condition (breaks very worn, windows did not function properly, poor wipers, car smelled like smoke)
2.0 Mediocre29 Oct 2019
Cons: Google Translation: When I arrived at the rental, I was told that because I was driving less than 25, it cost me $ 560 instead of the 130 I ordered and paid - even though I specifically wrote in the reservation that I was 23 !!!

Pros: NothingCons: SUV reserved and guaranteed was not available. Staff lied about availability when I called from airport.
2.0 Mediocre16 Jun 2021
Cons: Terrible experience! I've rented cars for many years and have never been questioned when I declined insurance. They made me contact my insurance company to verify that I had coverage on a rental car (which added almost 20 minutes to the car pick-up time). I had reserved a mid-size (Hyundai Elantra or similar). They gave me a Ford Focus and insisted it was mid-size and could sit 5. No way! I was told nothing else was available. Insisted on a reduced rate and they "miraculously" found a Toyota Corolla. Suspension on the car was terrible. Their website said I would be required to provide my PASSPORT so I traveled with it and was never asked for it. The car rental site was far from the airport. The only good thing was that their rate was about 1/2 of what the national companies charge. I guess you get what you pay for. STAY AWAY FROM THESE FOLKS!
4.0 Okay10 Jun 2021
Cons: Counter person not trying to overcharge you for everything possible
2.0 Mediocre2 Jun 2021
Cons: 1st of all the place is really really bad, with only 1 person serving it took hours to get the car. But the most pathetic thing was the attitude of the staff, when my turn came I wa stold that I have to buy all insurances. By law no one can force me to get all the insurances. The person there said if you won't take the insurances then you won't be given the car, take it or leave it. Which meant, instead of around $900, I was being forced to pay $2450. It's a rip off, already it was 8 pm so I stead of full 18-19 days I took the car for 11 days & was forced to all the insurances. It's really shameful that these people are doing these things openly and no one is تھر to stop them. They are actually taking advantage when they see the customer has no other choice. I returned the car on 22nd May & booked from hertz got a bigger car for half the price & no one there forced me to buy all the insurances. Pls make sure you black list such facilities. I had to pay around $1000 extra because I had no other option, I was there with my family with 5 suitcases. I do hope you will do something about it.

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.

  • Smaller vehicles are highly recommended for vacation-goers in New York City, especially if you plan to use a rental car as your main form of transportation. There are many one-way streets and smaller alleys that can be difficult to navigate with a larger car. It can also be difficult to find streetside parallel parking spots large enough to suit anything above a mid-sized vehicle.

  • A wide range of speed limits will be seen in New York City, but the most important detail to note is that the speed limit is always 25 mph unless signage says otherwise. On highways throughout New York, the maximum speed limit is 55 mph and the minimum is 45 mph, unless posted otherwise.

  • Gas prices on average in New York City are neither expensive nor cheap. On average, the gas price sits around $2.60 per gallon, which is a fair bit cheaper than Seattle’s $3+ but a bit more expensive than Dallas’ $2. One thing to note though, is that there are very few gas stations in Manhattan, so drivers should keep an eye on their fuel gauge and plan accordingly.

  • Streetside parking in New York City is incredibly difficult to find, especially in areas such as Manhattan. Thus, many drivers rely heavily on parking garages for both daily and hourly parking. However, planning must be done in advance as many of the garages can fill up fast, so it pays to plan ahead of time to know which garages are most convenient for your destination.
