Hi I have been told to collect my Virgin rental from JFK instead of Manhattan, but no one knows where I get it from-I thought Alamao did all Virgins rentals, but Alamo do not have a desk at JFK. Help please!

Alamo is handled by National Rental Car at JFK.

went through the various posts and did not get any info. Want to rent a car with Easycar at JFK, coming from a Delta flight from Spain. Any idea where they are and wich terminal we should go.

Hi Guys, you are fantastic with the advise you offer.

I was wondering if you can make some suggestion on my situation. We are Australians and flying in from LAX to JFK then stay in NewYork for a couple of days to explore the city. I would like to hire a car big enuf for a family of 5..drive it around and then drive to my brother in Toronto for a few days then return back to NYC.

1. Am I allowed to travel internatate in hire cars
2. Is it gonna be hard driving around
3. Will I need a GPS to navigate NYC and drive to YYZ
3. Is it worth the hassle

Any open opinions from you is very appreciated..btw we here drive on the Left side of the road with the steering on the right!


Dollar Rent A Car (complaint) – Daylight Robbery

Just to make it clear, we made our car rental reservation through a third party company called Booking Group (known as bookinggroup.com or economybookings.com). When troubles started Dollar blamed everything on the third party company. I'm not buying it…

Dollar robbed us 3 times:
1. According to the voucher we were holding the balance was EUR 127: "€ 127.03 is payable to Dollar on your arrival".
(Approximately $190 at that time)
Dollar charged us $250. After an 11 hours flight it was not easy to argue...what could we do?

Dollar response: "Our records indicate your reservation was booked as $250 in our system for the rental charges, which is what you were charged. Since the Euro amount was quoted to you by the third party company, and they booked the reservation in our system as $250, we must ask you pursue this matter further with the third party."

2. According to the voucher the drop-off location was Manhattan (no fee mentioned):
"Drop-off location: USA New York, Manhattan, Manhattan Downtown"
Dollar charged us with an extra $50, which was a Drop-off fee for returning the car to a different location than the original.

Dollar response: "Since our records indicate this vehicle was reserved with Dollar to return to JFK, we must conclude the third party booked with us incorrectly"

3. Dollar did not explain that the prepaid fuel plan is just an option; we understood that we have to take it.

Dollar response: "It appears you accepted prepaid fuel upon pickup. This was $34.29."

My recommendation: Don't book Dollar Rent-A-Car; Don't do business with Booking Group.

I have similar situation, both Dollar and Booking Group greed to cheat the customers, somebody has to write to the authority to put an end to this drama

can anyone tell me how to go to Rockland, ME from JFK airport? I have a luggage. is there shuttle bus from the airport to boston south station? if there is, what time and price, please.

Take the NYAS bus ($15) from any terminal to Penn Station. Then take Amtrak train to Boston which terminates at South Station. Both Megabus and Boltbus also go to Boston (around $20, way cheaper than Amtrak) leaving from just outside Penn Station but not sure where they will drop you off in Boston.

It's my first time in J.F.K and I will need to pick up a car from Dollar Rentals after exiting terminal 3.
For some reason I can't find an orientation map on the website…
Will directions in the airport itself will be easy in order for me to find the rental area?

Thank you.

After you exit Terminal 3 follow the signs to the Airtrain Station. Once at the platform take ANY train on track 1 to Federal Circle station. It is 10 min free ride. Dollar Rental Car is located on the first floor at Federal Circle Station.

I rent a car with enterprise in NYC and I'm traveling put of jfk thru jet blue can I drop the car off at an enterprise in jfk?

You can drop the car at Enterprise facility and then take their courtesy bus to the terminals.
Sometimes that bus drops off people at Federal Circle station where they can take free Airtrain to the terminals. Speak to the bus driver about that.


1. I would like to rent a car for 5days to travel to West Point? Y are the rates given to me in weekly basis?

2. anyone can let me know the cost of renting GPS?

3. The price of the insurance?

4. Will the saloon car able to fit 4 luggages?


We are driving into JFK from Secaucus, NJ, for a flight out on Jet Blue. We need to return a rental car from Avis. Any help or directions we can get to return our car at Avis and get to the Jet Blue terminals. I appreciate your time.
