My experience was excellent and handled with professionalism by everyone I met at the Train Station location, my pickup and travel to the location that my car was prepared, my interaction with the 2 gentlemen that took my information and cooled the car before I got in to leave. The agent transferred my luggage from one car to the other graciously. I had a very good experience and will use Hertz again in the future.

The Hertz Agent was courteous and friendly. and greeted me with a pleasant smile, both at the time of rental and at the time of return. Having a pleasant person to deal with is a big plus.

How do I get a bargain car rental in Stamford?

You're on your way to getting the best price on your car rental with CarRentals.com. But, you can try to do a few things to keep your upcoming rental affordable. Be sure to:

  • Compare weekly and daily rates from all the different suppliers
  • Book as far in advance as possible. You'll usually save more and get the car of your choice
  • Be aware of any cost for fuel policy, additional drivers, and mileage limits. That way you will know the true cost before you rent

These tips can help you save even more on your next car rental in Stamford.

What rental suppliers have outlets in Stamford?

From budget-friendly brands like Dollar and Thrifty to global names like Enterprise and Hertz, CarRentals.com has some of the best brands in the business. Read through the reviews to help you figure out which is best for your next trip.

What type of rental car should I get for my trip to Stamford?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Stamford. If you're having difficulty deciding, be sure to read over the chart below. We've compared the most popular types of vehicles for you:

How old do you have to be to rent a car in Stamford?

Usually, the age limit for renting a car in Stamford is 21—the same as it is across the rest of the USA. However, you might need to pay a surcharge if you're under 25. Be sure to read the rental agreement to determine what the total is before you rent your car.

Does Stamford require rental car insurance?

When cruising through Stamford or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you rent a car. The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to pay for interim coverage through the rental agency. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.

Many major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some insurance on your rental, however, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you get a luxury or larger vehicle. Check your rental car company's policy before you decide.

What is the fuel policy for Stamford rental cars?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.

You will need to search for an open gas station near your rental car supplier

What fuel policy do you recommend?

Most rental car suppliers give you a full to full tank policy. We encourage returning the car topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before bringing the rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

If you plan to explore all that Stamford and maybe even the rest of Connecticut offers, you are going to need unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Stamford. Go over the fine print to make sure your mileage is truly "unlimited."

Tips before you leave the lot

Be sure you go over a few things prior to leaving the car rental lot on your Stamford adventure. It's worth the time to:

  • Look over your car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. If you notice any, mark it down on your paperwork
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable working the navigation and entertainment. It's best to limit any unnecessary distractions when you are driving around a new city
