Book Cheap Car Rentals in New York

Taking a huge bite of the Big Apple is a lot NYC-er when you book a car rental in New York, NY. You can cruise through every borough and beyond from behind the wheel of your cheaper-than-you-expected ride and soak up all the sights and sounds of the city.

But there’s a lot to NY-see around these parts, so you better come up with a plan. When you’re all gassed up with everywhere to go, there’s only one thing to decide: What’s up first in the city that never sleeps?

Not sure which Broad-way to go? Here’s a little inspiration for your big city dreamin’.

More Like “Do” York

Outside the Concrete Jungle: Sure, NYC can feel like skyscraper central, but there’s plenty of green to be seen around town. When you step out of your hotels near Times Square, you obviously have to strut over to the 863 acres of Central Park, but that’s not the only outdoorsy fun to be had. If you want to stick around Manhattan, head to the westside and get airborne on the High Line—an old freight line that stretches for about a mile and a half and features art, food vendors, and gardens. Then cruise over to Brooklyn for a little time at Coney Island Beach. Take in some fresh ‘n’ salty air, then grab a ‘dog at the world-famous Nathan’s. For more beachy scenes and maybe even some surfing, Rockaway Beach is the perfect coastal spot to hang (10 or otherwise).

Taste the Boroughs: Maybe you’re staying in one of the best luxury hotels in New York, but the biggest extravagance on your last-minute NYC getaway? Getting to sample the next-level food scene the city has to offer.  Start with a trek to the Bronx for a bite at Tony & Tina’s Pizzeria, where you’ll find not only a stellar thick-crust slice but also some drool-worthy Albanian dishes. In Queens, hit up the taco truck Birria-Landia for some meaty Mexican goodness. When in Manhattan, it’s all about Jeju Noodle Bar for Michelin-starred ramen and chicken wings. In Brooklyn, try Peaches HotHouse for some unforgettable Nashville-style hot chicken. Finally, wrap things up in Staten Island with more pizza (when in NY, after all) at Denino’s Pizzeria & Tavern.

Hot Drive in the City: The best thing about getting a car rental in New York is being able to see the best of every borough in the city. And now that you’ve tasted your way around town, it’s time to take in the touristy stuff. Check out the zoo in the Bronx and Flushing Meadows in Queens. Brooklyn’s got the iconic bridge with bonus views, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and the New York Aquarium at Coney Island. Or jump on the Staten Island Ferry for those Statue of Liberty sightings, then head to Manhattan for a tour of the museums and all the other world-famous spots from the Empire State Building to Wall Street, then finally crash for a well-deserved rest at your Manhattan hotel.

NY State of Mind: When you reserve that long-term car rental in New York, you can see way beyond the city with some quick road trips. Start with Cape May at the Jersey Shore for sweet beach vibes and fried clams. Get some countryside views a few hours away with a jaunt to the Catskills, or do some wine tasting, hiking, and lake gazing at the Finger Lakes, around five hours away.
