Hi - I'm arriving in the international terminal with a medium/large dog (25 kilos/55 lbs). I have to get him and his carrier to a rental car. Does anyone know if any of the car rental companies pick me up at the terminal? Or, any recommendations on the best way to navigate with a dog and large carrier in tow? Thanks!

Can anybody tell me how much time you'd give to go from Stamford to JFK (for a Sunday 7:00pm flight) and allowing time to drop off a rental car? Also does anyone know how long it takes to get from Budget return counter to Jet Blue terminal? Thank you.

Enterprises and dollar rent a car sucks. DO NOT RENT car from them. THey are rude and gives u wrong information. Enterprise is somewhere outside the JFK and you will have to walk from there since the bus system is slow. WOrse part is people inside are very slow and rude. They talk amongs themselves while i was waiting for someone to help me. I had to rush to the airport to catch the plane.

My personal experience,
do not rent a car from Enterprise, if you are going to drop it off INSIDE JFK.
They offer you a drop-off in JFK, but the location is actually NOT inside JFK, it's somewhere on the street.
If you are not familiar with the location, you will never be able to find it while you have a plane to catch up.
And frequency of the shuttle bus is 1 HOUR.
When I called to book the car, they did tell me that I was able to drop-off the car INSIDE JFK. Such a trap!

Long story, but they ended up charged me $486 for a 12 hour rental car from Enterprise.

Hope it helps!

I will be arriving in Terminal 4 at JFK. How do I get to the National Rental Car Desk??
Thank You

all terminals have phones to the rental services - in addition all the car rental swervices have shuttle buses that go to each and every terminal to pick up and drop off patrons. Ask any airport personal to direct you to the shuttle bus stops for car rentals. The stops are in front of each terminal.
