Having car-rental options is a good thing, but it also can leave you feeling a bit confused about which vehicle best fits your needs. As you assess which of our rentals here at Empire Rent A Car will work for you, ask yourself these questions. By doing so, you should be able to better refine what you’re looking for and move forward in making the reservation.

Car Rental Decision

Q: What’s your budget?

Whether you’re traveling to the NYC area on vacation or business, you likely have a maximum dollar amount in mind that you’d like to spend on your car rental. If you have to be under a certain price point, our team can help direct you to budget-friendly options as well as our current rental specials.

Q: How many passengers do you have?

As much as you might want to save a few dollars, don’t try to cram your crew into a cheap rental car when a minivan would be much more comfortable. Get enough seats so that your party can travel without feeling cramped.

Q: How will you be spending your time in NYC?

Are you here on business? Are you going on a shopping spree? Maybe you’re taking your child’s class on a field trip? How you spend your time and who you spend it with will determine the type of car you need. For example, if you plan to be chauffeuring clients around Brooklyn or Manhattan, you may want to opt for a more luxurious Mercedes-Benz Metris van or an SUV in order to travel comfortably and make a good impression. However, if you’re transporting your kid’s soccer team, then a basic 15-passenger van will do the job just fine.

Q: Do you need to account for storage?

If you’re hauling equipment or plan to pack a large amount of luggage, then you need to make sure you have space to get it from point A to point B. For easy transportation (especially if you don’t have any passengers), consider a cargo van for maximum storage space and easy hauling. If you’re doing a road trip with some friends or family, then perhaps a minivan or passenger van will allow plenty of space and storage capacity for everyone in your group.
