Default Boston pier car rentals

I have elderly friends sailing the Maasdam from Montreal to Boston, spending 3 days post cruise in Sandwich. Which rental car company is the closest to the Port? They want to pick it up there and drop it off at the airport 3 days later. Any recommendations or experience in doing this.

I don't know if there are any car rentals at the port itself but the Seaport Hotel is near by and they may be able to rent a car there.

We have sailed from Black Falcon terminal at least 10 times an i've never seen any rental agencies near the port but I wasn't looking for one. There isn't much retail near the port. The hotel would be a very short cab ride.

It's also a very short ride to the Airport via cab ..the could save a large drop off fee by cabning to the airport ....renting and returning to the same place

Thanks everyone! They just didn't want to pay the airport tax and thought they could save $. They finally gave in and booked a car at the airport and actually are quite happy now because they got a Lincoln Town Car for only $200/5 days on an internet special and Entertainment coupon. Thanks again!
