The car rentals from Empire Rent a Car prove that bigger isn’t always better. In fact, sometimes smaller is superior. We offer economy and midsize cars at multiple locations throughout the New York area to suit your needs, whether you seek fuel efficiency or a little extra room to stretch out. As gas prices rise, more and more people are choosing to drive cars instead of bulky Hummers and other gas-guzzling, boxy vehicles. Whether you prefer modern or traditional, spacious or compact, we’ll help you find the perfect car rental for your upcoming trip. With locations throughout New York City, Empire Rent a Car proudly serves Flushing, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, College Point, Long Island City, Floral Park, and the surrounding areas. Contact us today at (800) 750-8782 to reserve one of our affordable, quality vehicles.

You shouldn’t have to sacrifice comfort for better gas mileage. Our slim and trim economy cars still get great gas mileage while providing ample cabin space. Now you can be comfortable during your trip and relaxed while looking at your gas receipt, too. Also, you'll love getting around the city in a compact car that can easily maneuver through the busy traffic. No worries here when you need to fit into one of the small parking spots!

At Empire Rent a Car, we make it easy to get a great deal on a quality car rental. Since these vehicles are more compact and have lower overhead costs, we can price our economy models lower. In fact, you can save even more with our online specials.

A little bigger and roomier than our economy fleet, our midsize rental cars give you the best of both worlds. They have spacious interiors, but are still able to fit into those tiny parallel parking spaces. More room for your passengers; more room for your luggage. Better yet, a midsize car gets good gas mileage and is an inexpensive car rental. Whether you’re traveling for business or for pleasure, you can’t go wrong with a midsize vehicle.

Since 1970, we’ve found new ways to live up to our motto. As the years pass, we’re constantly developing updated policies to simplify and upgrade your rental experience. You can always count on stellar service from our helpful employees and clean, new rentals from our lots. Additionally, we’ve added several car rental services that set Empire Rent a Car above competitors:

Free, unlimited local miles available for most passenger vehicles.

Pickup and delivery services (restrictions apply).

Unrestricted travel—even cross-country.

Several payment methods accepted, including cash.

Airport car rental delivery to JFK and LaGuardia airports.

Featuring everything from compact cars to spacious passenger vans, Empire Rent a Car offers a plethora of options in Flushing, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, College Point, Long Island City, Floral Park, and the surrounding New York areas. While our diverse selection ensures that you can find the perfect fit for your upcoming trip, sometimes it’s hard to determine which rental is right. If you’re having a hard time choosing, the following tips may help. You can also contact us at one of our locations, and we will be happy to guide you through the selection process.

How to Choose the Right Car Rental

When you’re choosing which vehicle to rent, a variety of factors should weigh into your decision. Before you click “reserve,” take the following considerations into account:

  • Cost: If you’re on a budget, you’ll love our cheap car rentals. Cheap only in price and not in quality, they make traveling for vacations, holidays, or just day-to-day activities affordable again. Also, check out our specials and save even more money on your favorite brands, makes, and models.
  • Function: What’s the primary reason that you’re renting? If you need to move, our trucks, trailers, and cargo vans give you a large amount of protected space. On the other hand, if you’re traveling for business, then you may want a nice car or a classy SUV.
  • Group Size: If you’re traveling solo, you can save money (and fuel) by getting one of our vehicles. However, if you’re touring Brooklyn with your choir group, a passenger van rental or one of our other large vans will be much more appropriate.
  • Airport car rental services at the JKF and LaGuardia airports
  • Driving Conditions: Think about your driving destination and the conditions you may run into along the way. If you’ll be in a busy place, like the Bronx or anywhere else in NYC, it will be much easier to get around in a smaller vehicle. However, if you’re going through mountains or traveling through inclement weather, an SUV with four-wheel drive may be the best choice.
  • Trip Duration: The longer the trip, the more important plush seats and other comfort-enhancing luxuries become. A full-size SUV will provide you with the space to get comfortable, as well as the advanced technology and handling unique to its class.

Obviously some of these factors will be more important to you than others. We suggest finding the ones that resonate with you the most and making your decision based off those. The best news is that, since all of the vehicles at Empire Rent a Car are in incredible condition and are well maintained, you really can’t choose wrong.

At Empire Rent a Car, we have a vehicle for every occasion. Read about our high standards of quality in our customer reviews, and then contact us today at (800) 750-8782 to make a reservation. We look forward to serving you.
