For people wishing to hire a car during their time in Rochester, there are plenty of available options, with rental car agencies found both around the airport and in the city centre itself. If you’re thinking of coming to Rochester any time soon and would like to arrange your rental car ahead of travelling, we’ve looked at all the companies based here and picked out the best across three distinct categories: Best value at the airport, best value in the city, and best for luxury cars.
For visitors travelling into Rochester by air and keen to find a cheap car rental at the airport, we’ve selected Enterprise and National, with both offering several mid-range cars at affordable rates. Enterprise’s most enticing deal is for a Mitsubishi Mirage, which is available for $488 for a week’s rental, with free cancellation and theft protection included. Enterprise, meanwhile offer a 5-seat Nissan Versa – ideal for families and those wanting extra luggage space – for $495 per week. Both companies also have impressive customer feedback with scores of above 8.
Budget car rental in central Rochester itself is also fairly easy to find, thanks to the presence of several rental companies around the city. For this category, we’ve selected Avis as the one providing the best value. Avis offer a Ford Fiesta, which may not excite speed junkies, but is a perfectly reliable model that was available for $282 for one week during our online search.
If you’re happy to spend a bit more to get yourself something a touch swankier for your stay in Rochester, the luxury car rental options here are excellent too. Our choices for luxury cars is Avis and Budget, both of whom offer several high-end models. Among Avis’s high-end portfolio in Rochester are several upscale Fords, including an SUV, as well as a Lincoln MXK. Budget, meanwhile, have even more Fords available, plus other desirable models including a Chevrolet Tahoe.
