With that much luggage I would not suggest public transportation.
There is a shuttle, called Dave's Best Limo that services JFK-Philadelphia. You can book it at Ground Transportation Counter(Welcome Center). It cost ~$60/passenger.

Thanks

JFK_Employee

Hertz facility is located next to the others so you can use "Federal Circle" in the address.

I've received a very good rate for a carrental from HONK carrental, but I have never heard of this company. Also when I google it you don't get a lot information.
Can somebody help me or has someone already rented with this (new-zealand)company

MikeyB (not verified)

Honk Car Rentals is a brand name used by iMall Brands Ltd who are a worldwide travel company specializing in car and RV rental, headquartered in Auckland New Zealand - but with operations all around the world. iMall Brands operates http://newyorkairportcarrental.com offering car rental from large blue chip car companies. Occasionally a major provider with too much fleet will drop their rates anonymously through a 'white label' brand, so they don't compromise their brand by pricing their rentals too low. Honk is such a 'white label' brand, so if you book with a Honk vehicle, it will end up being supplied by one of the major providers.

Hi all,
I need to know where the office of Hertz near terminal 4. And 4 hours before my trip is enough to deliver the car and return to terminal 4?
Thank you for all

Anonymous (not verified)

All rental car companies are located on the Federal Circle Terminal. Four hours is more than enough to return the car, do some shopping, eat and get early to terminal four. Enjoy your trip.

Never Again Avis (not verified)

I rented a car from AVIS at JFK on Saturday June 13, 2009. They only had 2 agents working the counter at 10am.
I was told they did not have my size car available, which I had reserved several days prior.... did I want to upgrade for $6 a day more? No, I said. They said it would be awhile for them to bring down a car.
I waited 20 min. and they said it's coming, it's coming. As it turned out, the rental car was in the space 20 feet outside the door, first one, and they made me wait for no reason.
Since you pay for those extra hours, a delay can cause you to rack up hourly rental fees. So I suspect this is a common practice at this rental site.

The reason I say this is because upon returning the car, on Saturday June 20, 2009.... they said their computers for check in were not working and I had to go inside to check the rental car back in.

Well guess what? Only 2 agents at the counter again at 4pm. ... The same 2 agents.

I waited 30 min. to check in the rental car and yes, that waiting time at the counter was counted as car rental time on the rental agreement. There was a line of 8 people behind me waiting to check in their cars as well and the agents were in no hurry to check people and rental cars back in.

AVOID THIS AVIS LOCATION at JFK. It is the worse car rental agency location I have ever rented from. I'LL NEVER AGAIN RENT FROM THIS AVIS LOCATION!!!

Hello

When I fly into JFK my car rental location is from Budget Building 6310 Federal Circle

Do you all provide a shuttle to Federal Circle so I can pick up my rental car?

gold price today (not verified)

On a lot of occassions that I've been to NY, I've had the opportunities to try the car rental services of Avis, Hertz and Dollar. So far, I would recommend Avis for their excellent customer service and well maintained line of vehicles.

I book my one week minivan via hotwire with Budget rental car. When I arrive at the counter, The female manager won't call me to the counter, she is on personal phone call,which I can hear everything she said. I wait for 10 min, the 2nd person shows behind me.We ask her, can someone help us? She was burst into attitude, and told us,"just wait,she has problems with the work schedule". Finally after 25 min, she check my reservation, and told me I have to get a free upgrade to a big SUV. I told her I just want my reserved minivan. She claim nothing available, but I saw so many in the parking lot,why? She ignore me,and walk away from 15 min. She is the only person in the counter, I was so mad. I ask for supervisor, she said she is the one.....Finally after 45 min, she gave me the car key with the real bad attitude. It ruin my vocation feeling at the begining.I strongly told evryone....Do not rent from Budget Rental car @ JFK...

Do unlimited mileage car rentals allow you to drive the vehicle to Canada ( Toronto ) and back ? Also, as a travel agent which Car rental company is likely to offer the best rates ?

Can anyone help with a suggestion on how to find a good price on a minivan from Aug 30- Sept 7? I cant seem to find anything for less than $1k & Priceline keeps rejecting my bids. My most recent bid was for $61 a day. I really cant afford a thousand dollar car rental. We are traveling with 6 adults & one toddler & were hoping to all pile into one car.
Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Is it possible that I rent a car from New Jersey and return it at the JFK airport. Basically I have no ride to the airport and have lots of luggage, so I was thinking into renting a car and driving to JFK from NJ and then returning the car there. Can someone please suggest if thats a good idea?
