I can only write here I dont give away personal information on this website. Make sure you get U.S tourist visa. All you have to do once you arrive here is to go through Immigration and Customs with your luggage.

Need to rent a car in jfk & drop off in Nanuet/ Rockland Co. Does anyone know which company has a location there for drop off?

I am a party of two driving a Rental car to JFK from Ohio to take a Delta international flight. I would like a few pieces of advice about rental car return at JFK and dropping off luggage.

How easy is to find the rental car return facility?

Is it easier to drop of at Delta first with luggage and then go return car or should i do it the opposite?

Please note I have two heavy pieces of luggage and a few carry ons.

Any and all advice is appreciated.

1. Follow signs for rental car return near Federal Circle
2. Drop off luggage first, then return car and take Airtrain from Federal Circle back to terminal

I am travelling in on the 29th of April 2012. Does anyone know of any company/ies located at the JFK renting baby related equipment, excluding car rental companies, since they require renting a car as well. I do not want to travel to NY. Many thanks!

I wonder if someone can help me?

I am planning to visit America (from the UK) in the Summer with my son, to celebrate his 18th birthday in June. We are flying into JFK, visiting a relative near Liberty in The Catskills, then over to Boston, and back via Cape Cod/ New England. Long Island. At this (early) stage, we are planning to arrive on Friday 22nd June, and would return the car mid/late pm on the 2nd July.

I would prefer something a little "different" ie a convertible of some description, maybe Audi A4 size, or similar... but not a Mini.

I cant seem to get much joy on various web site so I was just wondering if a) this is possible and b) if so, some idea as to the likely cost. Clearly if it is ridiculously expensive, I will just have a "standard" car ie Focus or similar!

Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.

Hi there, I am American but some family members are from Germany. We found it cheaper to use the German Website and book through the German company I believe that is due to the insurance the way each perspective comany handles them. Therefore, due to the German ways of car insurance it comes out cheaper. Try National it is in federal circle along with many other car rentals. I hope this help and you have a pleasant trip :-)

when i arrive in terminal 1 which train do i take to the long term parking?



The one on track 1.

Are there any car rental places INSIDE the airport?

No, all rental car counters are located at the Federal Circle. Take any AirTrain on track 1 from terminals to Federal Circle station.

My wife and I returned a car to Avis Thursday afternoon before flying back to Europe. Unfortunately, we lost our GPS device and we think that it might have been left on a seat within the hall, in front of the tellers desk.If you happened to find it, would you mind contacting us at the above mentioned e-mail address? Thank you for your attention.

Could somebody reply to my preceding post? Thank you for your attention.

Hi,I will be renting a car from Hertz JFK location. As I will not be arriving the airport by air I plan to take Airtran from Jamaica Station to Federal Circle. I wonder how far is Hertz rental location from the Airtran terminal? Is it outside or inside the terminal?

Thanks and appreciate your helps!

Best regards.
