Rochester, NY Guide

Rochester, in New York State, has a wealth of historical and natural attractions to explore, and is also the perfect springboard for trips to other areas of the state’s northeastern region.

The High Falls of the Genessee River are Rochester’s most acclaimed environmental attraction. They are best viewed from Brown’s Race, an historical monument which is an attraction in itself. Often overlooked are the Middle Falls and Lower Falls of the Genessee, which are more isolated than the High Falls and certainly worth a visit.

The city centre abounds with historical wealth. On Main Street, visitors can wander past 22 historic markers, including exquisite decorative railings on Main Street Bridge, and an imposing statue of Mercury. Main Street is also filled with shops, ranging from high-end boutiques to bargain stores.

North of Rochester is one of the world’s most stupendous natural sights - Niagara Falls, the second-largest of its kind in the world. Beyond the falls, on the St Lawrence River, are the Thousand Islands. The islands are tranquil and naturally beautiful, with abundant parks and forested areas.

Albany, the New York State capital, is situated west of Rochester, on Lake Hudson, and is home to numerous popular entertainment venues. The French château style capitol building is an additional attraction.

If you are coming by car to Rochester, the most direct route to the city is along I-90, from Chicago in the west and Boston in the east. Rail connections in New York State are prolific, and most major cities in the state are connected by trains. Rochester’s regional airport offers daily flights to and from New York City, Buffalo, Albany and Boston. JFK and LaGuardia in New York City offer international services, as well as daily services to Rochester.

Frequently asked questions

Is 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?
