With all the rental companies and options in New Jersey, finding a rental car to meet your needs can start to feel pretty overwhelming. Of course, it’s nice to have several high-quality options, but it’s also important to be able to narrow your search so that you can quickly find a car that best meets your needs. As a local, family-owned company, our team at Hogan’s Automotive tries to make booking a car as easy as possible, and here are a few tips to help you make your decision.

Which Rental Car Is Right for You?

Consider Your Passengers

How many people are traveling with you? Will you need ample storage for luggage or other gear? Make sure you know just how many seats and how much storage space you’ll need. For example, four people can fit comfortably in a mid-size car if you’re just going around town. However, if you’re traveling upstate for a day trip or an overnighter, then your crew might travel better and be happier with the additional room of an SUV or a minivan.

Consider Your Budget

Whether you are looking to stay within a certain price point, or you want to splurge on a luxury vehicle to impress your clients, you need to decide on your priorities so you can set a budget. Consider whether you need all the bells and whistles, or if a basic model will work just fine. At Hogan’s, we have a great selection of vehicles that will meet you needs in all budgets.

Check for Discounts

Whenever you’re traveling, it’s a good idea to check around for specials and discounts so you don’t spend more than you need to. Be sure to check out our regular rental specials because you may find we have a special deal on a specific type of vehicle, or you may be able to keep your rental for a longer period of time without it costing you more.

Consider Customer Service

Before you book your rental car, take a moment to find out about the company’s customer service. If the reviews are sub-par, you may want to move on to a local, customer-friendly rental company like Hogan’s Automotive.
