KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Manchester

  • The easiest way to see everything in and around Manchester is on your own four wheels, so rent a car for your time in the city to make the most out of your trip. The city offers a wide array of great attractions which are dotted all around the city, so getting to see them all becomes considerably easier when you can create your own itinerary and are not tied to public transport. Visitors may also consider taking a day trip to coastal cities like Portsmouth, which is only 50 minutes by car away.
  • If you land at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, consider renting a car directly from the airport grounds to start your time in Manchester as quickly and smoothly as possible. Follow the signs to the car hire center, where travelers will find a wide array of car hire agencies, such as Enterprise, Hertz, or Avis, to name a few. Via the I-293 S, travelers will be in Manchester in less than a quarter of an hour.
  • Bear in mind that winter can bring lots of snow and sleet to New Hampshire and Manchester is no exception. Prepare yourself for wintery driving conditions when visiting during the cold months, and check if the car is properly equipped with winter tires when renting. Travelers may also want to get extra snow chains in case the weather conditions become severe. When there is snow in Manchester, the roads become narrower due to it being piled up on either side, so adjusting your speed and slowly entering intersections is crucial.
  • Morning rush hour in Manchester peaks between 7 and 8 am, so it is better to avoid it for a hassle-free ride. Evening rush hour usually kicks in at around 5 pm and can last until 8 pm, clogging up the streets -- especially the I-93 and I-293, which is teeming with commuters. On weekends, traffic is usually pleasantly smooth and drivers should face no problems, but still check current traffic conditions before driving just in case.
  • Book your rental car in Manchester at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Manchester are around 65% cheaper than other car types, on average

    On-street parking in Manchester is metered; simply check the time restrictions and prices on the designated sign.

Nothing about my experience was enjoyable. I reserved a pick up truck to rent and was called 30 min before my pick up time, and was told they had no more trucks. They gave away my reserved truck. Terrible business practice and model.

Arrived at airport in Manchester, NH and was told the car was at an off site location. Took an Uber to the location and it was closed. Took Uber back to airport and finally was able to get a car. Was told to return the car to the airport and an up charge would not be made. Did return the car to the airport, but the upcharge was on the bill when I had an opportunity to view it. Was able to get the upcharge revised via phone, but the whole experience was just a hassle.

Cons:

We were only able to drive the car for the airport, one day while we had it and back to the airport. The key fob wouldn’t work. And it took us a couple of days to find someone who carried the battery. So we had to pay for that also.

Car was wonderful. When we picked it up it looked new in a poorly lit garage. When in bright daylight we noticed that the car had been side swiped. We returned to the rental agency and was told that an insurance claim had already been filed. That should have been brought to our attention at pick up time. On returning the auto we had been told where to go and that the kiosk had a place to leave the keys. There was no secure place to leave the keys so we left them under the seat. Other than those two issues we were very pleased with the car as it had many safety features
