just checked on the jfk website and they state that only 6 rental companies operate from there,
where does Alamo operate from, or is it part of the National company, does it have its own desk, does it operate from the federal circle

I understand there is an Alamo counter there.

Alamo is represented by National at JFK.

I will rent a car with SIXT, but I don´t see they office in the federal circle, where is it?

Hi Please advise the best way, besides hiring a self drive vehicle to get to Newport on 8 September 2011 from JFK. with thanks

Is your destination Newport, Rhode Island??

I will be arriving at terminal 7, I need to know how to get to car rental's offices. Do they accept walk-ins? Should I book online, if it is cheaper?
thank you

Definitely book on-line so you have at least you have a car reserved. Take any AirTrain on track 1 to Federal Circle, all rental car companies are located there.

Million thanks for your help!

I will be going to receive my family at JFK airport and want to rent a car from airport itself. Please let me know where can I find the rental car office.

Rental cars are located at the Federal Circle AirTrain station, take any AirTrain on track 1 from terminal to Federal Circle. There are no rental car counters in the terminals.


just wondering does enterprise let you rent a car from JFK and return it at their coney island branch? If not, does any other company on this site do?

Ask Enterprise.

Hi, I am travelling along and returning my rental car at Hertz, JFK. I have 2 big luggage and 1 handcarry. I will not be able to handle myself with all these luggages unless there is a luggage carts at the Hertz return.
Can you please is there any luggage carts available at Hertz Return? TQ very much~!

You should be able to rent a luggage cart at Federal Circle where the rental car return is located, and then take cart on AirTrain to your terminal.
