When driving the New York City rent a car, keep in mind that the cheap rates help offset some of the higher gasoline costs. Our cheap rent a car rates can be as much as 50% less than some of the rates offered by the national rent a car companies.
The 15 passenger van is a great way to combine several several families or groups of people so you do not need to take several cars on your trip. When taking a 15 passenger van from New York City keep in mind that you are paying tolls for one vehicle rather than several. The discounted 15 passenger van can replace up to 4 cars driving on a family vacation or business outing; whether you are in New York City, within the 5 boroughs such as Brooklyn or the Bronx or just going to an event like opening day for the New York Yankees or New York Mets. Often times at stadiums and hotels there is ample parking for the discount 15 passenger van despite its larger size.
There is no reason to keep the air conditioner closed when driving the New York rental car. The money you save with the cheap rates will offset any increased gas consumption. Furthermore, driving the New York City rental car with the windows open creates more drag which can increase the gas the rent a car burns rather than reduce the gas consumption.
Driving the rent a car at a steady pace rather than having many starts and stops is another way to keep gasoline consumption down. The best fuel economy all the rent a car average is during steady highway driving. The faster you drive the New York cheap rent a car the more gas you burn and thus offset the discount you experience from the cheap car rental rates.
