Tips for renting a car in Newark

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Newark including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on February 24, 2024.
  • Newark, New Jersey can best be explored in a rental car. In a Newark rental car, you can visit friends and family, keep appointments, attend social events, or take advantage of outdoor recreation opportunities without being limited by public transportation options. In a Newark rental car, you can explore the Newark Museum of Art, Thomas Edison National Historical Park, or Trailside Nature and Science Center. Beyond city limits, you can drive to New York City, Philadelphia, New Haven, and Washington DC.
  • When you are driving your Newark rental car, you will undoubtedly encounter toll roads and many of these except electronic payment only. Consider investing in the Toll Program offered by the car rental company. Often, if you try to pay tolls with your own E-ZPass or transponder, the payment will not register and you will be fined by the state and the car rental company. This expensive disconnect occurs because the name on the transponder account does not match the name of the car’s registered owner.
  • Because Newark, New Jersey is essentially a suburb of New York City, expect congested traffic at peak rush hours of about 6 am to 9:30 am and from about 3 pm to 6:30 pm. Drivers in and around the New York City metropolitan area tend to be aggressive. Exercise caution and give right away to more aggressive drivers in order to avoid road rage incidents or causing damage to your rental vehicle.

Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car rentals in Newark, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on February 24, 2024.

Can I drive my Newark rental car into Canada?

Most car rental companies will allow you to cross the northern border and drive their rental vehicle into Canada, but make sure that you secure permission when you make your reservation. For instance, agencies usually prohibit renters from driving luxury, sports, or other specialty cars across the border. Furthermore, the rental company needs time to arrange all the necessary paperwork and insurance. When you drive up to the Canadian border, you will have to show your US driver's license, your US passport, your rental car agreement, and your Canadian Non-Resident Insurance Card, which you must obtain from the car rental company.

Where are the car rental counters at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)?

As it is located about 5 miles south of downtown Newark, the Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) makes a convenient place for securing a Newark car rental. The car rental stations are located at stop P3 on the EWR AirTrain, which can be easily accessed by flowing signs in Terminals B and C. If you land at Terminal A, take a complimentary AirTrain shuttle from Door 3 Departures Level to the Air train station. Here, board the train for P3. When it is time to return your rental car, follow the Rental Car Return signs as you approach the airport and then take the AirTrain back to your EWR terminal.

What weather should I be aware of in my Newark rental car?

If it rains while you are driving a Newark rental car, keep in mind that city roads get slick fast in the rain because of all the oil and dirt built up on the blacktop. Drive with caution and make sure that you leave more room than usual between you and other cars on the road, to give everybody more space to stop. This rule of driving cautiously also applies to the winter months, when it is snowing. Before you get in your rental car to drive in the snow, make sure that you clear your windows of all ice and snow so that visibility is not impeded. Use the ice scraper and snow brush in your vehicle as well as the defrost.
