The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Pick up and drop off went smoothly. The car was in good shape inside and out.

My experience was great with Hertz in terms of customer service and the car itself. The main challenge was that I was scheduled to return my rental to the a downtown Boston location (30 Park Plaza) at 11pm (as stated in my rental agreement and on receipt) and when I arrived at 10pm to return the vehicle, the garage was locked and I was unable to return the car. When I called Hertz, there was no direct option for this type of situation and I was passed along to several people, none of whom had straightforward answers. I ended up returning the vehicle to the airport and they assured me that I wouldn't get charged for returning it to a different location, but then an extra charge came through on my credit card. I had to call customer service to get a refund, which hopefully will come through. The woman with customer service that assisted me was very kind and helpful! Overall, just wished that they had told me when I picked up the car that I wouldn't be able to return it at the scheduled time to that location, which would had prevented a lot of stress and saved me a lot of time.

We waited about 45 minutes for the car we had rented but finally they upgraded us to a small SUV which was better so it was worth the little wait.

Car rentals in Cambridge, Boston: What you need to know

Whether you are in Cambridge on business or to check out the sights, having the option to go where you want to go, when you need to is key to a fantastic trip. Using Cambridge buses may be an inexpensive method to see the neighborhood, but if you are trying to get to another part of Boston, you could be left waiting for a while. Taxis and ridesharing, like Uber or Lyft, can be faster, but if you are going to see as much as you can in Cambridge, the cost can start to add up. Moreover, they may not be immediately available.

If you want to get the most from your trip to Cambridge, then having your own set of wheels is the best way to make sure you have the time to do all that you want to do during your stay. We can help you book an affordable price and the car of your choosing. Check out our tips to discover all that you need to know about renting a car in Cambridge.

Frequently asked questions

What's the best way to get an inexpensive rental car in Cambridge?

If you are looking for some of the best rates on a car rental, then you are in the right place. To get the most savings when you travel to Cambridge you can do a few things:

  • Compare and contrast the rates for a few suppliers on the type of car you want
  • Book as far in advance as possible. You will usually get the car of your choice and save more
  • Check the fuel and mileage policies. You don't want to be surprised with added costs
  • Decide what car you'll need for your vacation. Don't get more car then you need

Be sure to go through the rental policy before you reserve your vehicle.

What car do you suggest for Cambridge?

With a number of vehicles to select from, it may be tough to decide which vehicle is the best for your holiday. Nevertheless, keep in mind the amount of driving and how many people you're riding with. Our table below can help you reserve which vehicle is the best one for your trip.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Cambridge?

The youngest age to rent a car in most cities, like Cambridge, Boston, is 21. However, there is commonly an added charge for anyone under 25. Make sure you check the rental car company's policy before you book. Additionally, the age restriction may be different for premium, large capacity, SUVs, or other higher category vehicles.

Does the United States require car insurance?

Many countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to purchase interim insurance with the rental car company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check the supplier's policy before you decide.

Do I need to return my car rental with a full tank?

We recommend a "full-to-full" policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. If you return the rental with less fuel than you began with, the company may charge you up to 3X the current prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to the supplier. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Do any Cambridge suppliers offer one-way rentals?

A lot of rental car companies offer one-way rentals. Depending on your travel plans, you may find it simpler to drop off your car at a different location. Be aware that there is generally an extra fee for one-way drop offs.

Why should I get unlimited miles in Cambridge?

Most suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you want to make sure it is part of the bundle that you are purchasing. It's helpful to know how much you want to drive and plan your trips in advance. Although most car rental providers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your package those miles can pile up and so can the extra cost. You may need to have unlimited miles if you are imagining some road trips to discover what else is in Boston.
