Car Rental TipsRenting a car shouldn’t be rocket science, but with all the companies and options out there, your decision isn’t always an easy one. At Empire Rent A Car of NYC, we try to make booking a car as easy as possible, and here are a few tips to help you make your decision.

1. Know your needs.

When it comes to renting a car, what needs are a priority? For example, if you’re just traveling from Brooklyn to Queens, do you need your van to have full onboard entertainment with all the bells and whistles, or will a basic model do fine? Or maybe you’re here on business and need a luxury car to impress potential clients. You know your needs, so make sure to keep them in mind when renting a car.

2. Count your passengers.

How many people are traveling with you? Will you need ample storage for luggage or other gear? Make sure you know just how many seats and how much storage space you’ll need. For example, four people can fit comfortably in a mid-size car if you’re just going around town. However, if you’re traveling up state for a day trip or an overnighter, then you may want to opt for a minivan that has more space and storage.

3. Check out the discounts.

Don’t pay more than you need to for a car rental. Be sure to check out our regular rental specials because you may find we have a special deal on a specific type of vehicle, or you may be able to upgrade without it costing you more.

4. Consider customer service.

Before you book your rental car, take a moment to find out about the company’s customer service. If the reviews are sub-par, you may want to move on to a local, customer-friendly rental company like Empire Rent A Car.
