What kind of rental car should I get for Boston?
Nothing screams good times like a road trip, particularly when you’re headed someplace as wonderful as Boston. With big-name sights like Fenway Park and TD Garden, there’s so much to see in so little time. That’s where a rental car can be a blessing. You’ll be able to check out loads more places — but choose something small for easy city driving, like a compact car. If you don’t want to cruise around those daunting streets, Massachusetts abounds with natural wonders. Ditch the zippy car for something larger, like a standard vehicle, and explore the most popular bays.
Should I get a luxury rental car in Boston?
You’ll be pleased to hear that there’s a broad range of luxurious rental vehicles available in Boston. What you end up going with depends on what you’re willing to spend and what you plan to do. Specialty vehicles often spare no expense when it comes to comfort and class. If you’re splurging, why not go for a high-end SUV, or perhaps an upmarket medium-sized sedan? Otherwise, if you’re just after something to whiz around town in as efficiently as possible, stick with an economy compact vehicle (or something else that’s unlikely to break the bank).
Is it difficult to park in Boston?
Getting a place to park in Boston isn’t always simple. That’s why many visitors book a hotel that has its own parking. When leaving the car around town, pay attention to the signage. Overstaying the maximum time limit could earn you a nasty fine.
Does Boston have peak-hour traffic?
