What kind of rental car should I get for New York?
Visiting New York to cross off Times Square and Broadway? That’s what we call a road trip of a lifetime! But you’ll need to give a bit of thought to just how you’ll get around. Driving in this heaving metropolis can be a nerve-wracking experience, so it makes sense to pick something small, like a mini or a compact car. You’ll be squeezing past traffic and snapping up car spaces like a true local. If you’d rather leave the driving for outside the city, that’s OK too. Secure something more comfortable and a little bigger, like an SUV, and discover the rocky coastlines of United States of America.
Should I get a luxury rental car in New York?
There’s plenty of choice when it comes to rental cars in New York. From SUVs with trunk space galore to zippy compacts that make parking a cinch, you’ll find it all here. Deciding on your perfect match depends on your budget and what you intend to do. There are some road trips that are just begging you to splurge on your dream ride, whereas others don’t need much more than enough space for your luggage and buddies. The choice is yours.

Does New York have peak-hour traffic?
Before and after work is when New York roads slow to a crawl, so avoid these times for a smoother ride. Cruising around a city of 8,175,100 people is exciting, but not when you’re caught in a sea of cars.

It’s illegal to use your cell phone while cruising in your car around New York, and you may even be charged a fine for simply holding your phone when you’re in control of a vehicle.
