Location information for Buffalo

Introduction

Buffalo has had a hard time because of the industry moving out of town. The last few years Buffalo is brought to life again: the quays along the water have been transformed into an attractive entertainment and residential area and instead of being an industrial center, Buffalo is now a center of high-quality healthcare and higher education. Architecture is one of Buffalo's main attractions: there are buildings from various periods, for example in the historical district of Allentown. The city is also a perfect operating base to visit the famous Niagara Falls, north of town.

Population

Buffalo has over 300,000 inhabitants which makes it the largest city in the state of New York after New York City. Many more people live in the Buffalo metropolitan area: about 1.1 million.

Location

Buffalo is located in the state of New York in the United States on the east side of Lake Erie and opposite Fort Erie, situated in Canada. The Niagara River runs from Buffalo to the north, across the Niagara Falls to dispatch into Lake Ontario.

Economy

Buffalo used to be at a junction of traffic, including railroads. Shipping across the Great Lakes (and through the Erie Canal) used to be important for the city. It created a lot of heavy industry, of which most has disappeared. Buffalo's economy now depends mainly on healthcare, higher education and (financial) services.

Airports

Buffalo Niagara International Airport is situated in the city's eastern suburbs, 15 kilometers northeast of the center. From the center, the airport is easily reachable by rental car via the Kensington Expressway (NY-33). From other parts of the state of New York the airport can be reached via the New York State Thruway, which ends at the airport.

Public Transport

The city has good public bus transport. There's also a subway line from the city center to the campus of the University of Buffalo. In the center the subway runs aboveground; just after Theater Station it goes underground. In the center you don't have to pay for the subway. There's also a direct bus connection with Niagara Falls: line 40 runs from the Buffalo Transportation Center to this famous attraction.

Traffic and Parking

Like many other American cities Buffalo has a regular street pattern and many freeways cross the city, including the aforementioned Kensington Expressway to the airport. Finding a free parking place in the street isn't very difficult, but it's better to park your rental car in one of the parking garages in the center. The locations are signposted.

Hotels

Buffalo offers a good range of accommodations. Especially the budget category is well represented, but there are also sufficient midrange hotels and some luxurious accommodations. Most hotels are located in the city center, close to the city's main attractions.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
