Cheap New Jersey Car Rentals: What You Need to Know

From the many farms in the city of Chester to the sandy beaches and boardwalk of the Jersey Shore in Ocean City, New Jersey is home to a diverse landscape and culture all its own. Find out what keeps the Garden State fresh when you rent a car for your trip to New Jersey.

How can I get a cheap car rental in New Jersey?

The best way to find a cheap deal on a car rental is to take the following steps:

  • - Run a thorough search and compare of various deals;
  • - Pick up the vehicle from a non-airport rental location;
  • - Plan your routes so you have an idea of your fuel and mileage requirements; 
  • - Book in advance;
  • - Keep the number of drivers to one.

What New Jersey car rental companies are good?

There are lots of top suppliers in the area, such as Sixt, Avis, Hertz, and Alamo, as well as smaller ones that are local to the state. Read some reviews when doing your research.

What kind of car rental should I get in New Jersey?

The vehicle you go for is entirely up to you, but bear in mind your travel needs. SUVs and minivans are a good choice for those traveling in large parties, but if you don’t need that much space, take a look at our compact cars.

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

Drivers of car rentals must be 21; if you’re under 25, you may be asked to pay a surcharge.

Do I need insurance when renting a car in New Jersey?

Yes. Your car or credit card insurer may even cover you for renting, so check first but, if you need it, you can buy insurance through us or your rental supplier if you’re a US citizen.

Can I book with unlimited mileage when renting a car in New Jersey?

Many companies can offer unlimited mileage with their rentals. If they don’t, be sure to keep an eye on your milometer so you don’t go over your limit and face extra charges.

Can I use a debit card for a New Jersey hire car?

No, debit cards are not as widely accepted as credit cards. You are also not able to make a reservation using prepaid cards or cash.

Is it possible to hire a car one-way in New Jersey?

Yes, though this usually requires an additional fee.

Which sights and/or cities are must-sees in New Jersey?

The state of NJ has lots of natural and historic beauty to offer its visitors. The Thomas Edison National Historical Park is the former lab and home of Thomas Edison, one of the world’s greatest inventors. Here, you can get a close-up view of original objects used by Edison and preserved in this huge mansion.

Visit the world-renowned Princeton University and its impressive grounds. If you take a tour, you’ll be informed and entertained by the students of the highly regarded university.

What is a good road trip in New Jersey?

If you take a road trip along New Jersey’s Atlantic coastline, you’ll see a wide array of fishing and birdwatching spots.

Start your journey in Atlantic City and, after walking the boardwalk and trying your luck in its flashy casinos, head south to Margate, home to suburban streets and big houses. Then, continue your route down the Garden State until you reach the southern-tip beach resort of Cape May, where you can take a walking tour and eat in one of the many delicious seafood restaurants.

What activities is New Jersey especially good for?

Treat yourself to a beach day and drive out to the Jersey Shore. Take a hands-on approach to learning at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City or drive just minutes away to Liberty State Park. When you’re done seeking thrills at Six Flags Great Adventure in the city of Jackson, simply hop in your New Jersey car rental and head to the bright lights of Atlantic City.

Traffic tips to keep you safe

When driving your rental around the state of NJ, listen to the radio for traffic alerts and updates. This might help you avoid congestion and give you tips for detours or alternative routes. Leave plenty of time to get to your next destination in case you hit traffic or take a wrong turn. Finally, keep water and a few snacks in the car if you’re setting out for a long journey!

Just because you’ll be privy to the fields of the Garden State, it doesn’t mean you need to shell out all of your green. Instead, book a car for your time in New Jersey here on CarRentals.com and secure an affordable rate.
