Our office at JFK airport is handily located in the heart of the airport complex. When you get off your plane, all you have to do is collect your bags and follow signs to the free Airtrain. From here, you can head into the heart of the city (a 30-minute drive) or explore neighbouring areas such as Newark and up into New Jersey.

Our office is open all day so we’ll soon have you in your hire car, whatever time you arrive. Plus with frequent flyer points and no hidden charges, we're your perfect choice for hiring a car from New JFK Airport.

Driving in and around New York

If you hire a car at New York’s JFK Airport, you’ll have a chance to drive right into this amazing world-class metropolis. It’s only a 12 miles drive to the centre of NYC from our office.

When you arrive at New York JFK Airport, you’ll quickly be able to join the city's road network. The four-lane JFK Expressway, also known as the I-678, loops right through the airport complex and past the Station Federal Circle where we are based.

Take this road north into the heart of the city or join the Belt Parkway, which curves around the southern side of Queens and Brooklyn. The Belt Parkway allows you to drive west to Staten Island and on towards Philadelphia and Baltimore. Take this road east for anywhere on Long Island. The I-495 acts as the perfect route to find your bearings, running across the breadth of NYC and offers a convenient way into Newark and Jersey City.

The city has a comprehensive grid pattern of streets with simple numbered blocks, making NYC easy to navigate around. You should be aware that the main routes through the city centre maybe become congested during peak times of the day.

You should read up on the rules and regulations of NYC's roads before you head out in your hire car – find out all the laws you'll need to know here. It's worth noting that some of New York City's, and New York State's, bridges and tunnels have toll charges to use. So you're fully aware of when and where you may have to pay a charge, you can read all the details online.

A quick guide to New York and beyond

From the glamour and excitement of Broadway to the inner-city green space at Central Park, New York City lives up to its billing as one of the world’s greatest cities to visit. Whether you’re here for business or pleasure, with a hire car from New York JFK Airport you’re guaranteed to experience something memorable during your stay.

The magic of Manhattan

You’ll find that this famous city of skyscrapers is actually built upon the islands of a large natural harbour at the mouth of the Hudson River, with Manhattan standing at its centre. Head into this busy grid of towering buildings if you want to find iconic sights like the bustle and glamour of Times Square or the relaxing greenery of Central Park and you’ll also be able to see the view from the top of perhaps the most famous landmark of all, the 102-storey Empire State Building.

The best boat trip is out to the Statue of Liberty on Ellis Island in the harbour – you can hop aboard a vessel at Battery Park or Liberty State Park. Beyond that you can experience the traditional fun of Coney Island and the beaches of the islands facing the Atlantic.

A hub of architecture

New York is like a living collection of architectural styles. Wander the streets craning your head upwards, admire the skyline from the water or take trips up to observation decks at many of the most popular towers. From the art deco magnificence of the Chrysler Building to the modernist blocks of the UN Headquarters, you’ll be able to see some of the world’s most famous and most photographed buildings.

Before you enjoy the collections inside, you can enjoy the architecture of some of the most impressive galleries and museums in the USA, like the Metropolitan Museum of Art on 5th Avenue and the Guggenheim Museum, designed by the famed American architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

Grand Central Station is another iconic piece of NYC architecture, both inside and out. Nearby you can explore the High Line. This is modern urban architecture at its best: what used to be an elevated section of railroad is now a linear park for walkers and joggers.

Head further afield

When you’ve got one of the world’s most amazing cities on your doorstep it’s hard to think about other destinations – but JFK Airport serves a much wider area than just NYC. Drive out to Long Island and wander the parks of Connetquot River State Park, or if you're looking for a coastal retreat, head for the Hamptons.

You'll find a host of upstate cities on the outskirts of NYC too, all offering a different atmosphere for you to take in. Try the sophisticated city of Buffalo, famed for its neoclassical architecture and cultural scene, and visit Albany, the state capital on the banks of the River Hudson. You could even head right up to the Canadian border to find the spectacular Niagara Falls waterfalls - one of the natural wonders of North America.
