New York International Airport LaGuardia Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

LaGuardia is the second main airport located in New York City. Though JFK International and Newark Liberty International are the city’s main international gateways, LaGuardia is a major gateway and hub for domestic passengers. 

Rental cars from all major suppliers are available at the airport. The airport is well-connected to both Long Island and I-278 heading to Upstate New York and Connecticut. This makes the LaGuardia the perfect place to pick up a rental car and explore the surroundings of the city. 

Top international routes

  • Toronto, Canada
  • Montreal, Canada
  • Aruba
  • Nassau, Bahamas

Main airlines

The main airlines that operate out of LaGuardia are Delta, American, Southwest, United, and Air Canada. Southwest, Spirit, JetBlue, WestJet, and Frontier Airlines.

Terminals

The airport has four terminals. The only carrier to operate out of Terminal A is JetBlue. Terminal B is the largest of the terminals with four different concourses and 40 gates. Air Canada, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines operate out of it. Terminals C and D are connected by a walkway and are located near each other at the eastern end of the airport. Terminal C is mostly occupied by Delta and Delta Connection. Frontier and Spirit Airlines also operate out of it. Terminal D was once exclusively used by Delta, though WestJet no operates some flight from it.

Location

LaGuardia is located along the waterfront in northern Queens. The airport is well-connected to Brooklyn and Manhattan, with Midtown taking around 45 minutes to drive to.

Most popular types of rental car

  • Large cars - from $159 per day
  • Medium cars - from $119 per day
  • Vans - from $201 per day
  • Premium cars - from $192 per day
  • Small cars - from $124 per day
  • SUVs - from $183 per day

Car rental desks

Each company that is located at the airport has its own facility and shuttle. The shuttles all depart and arrive outside of Terminal A. If landing at one of the other terminals, you must first take the blue shuttle (for Terminal B), or the red shuttle (for Terminals C and D) to Terminal A.

Services and facilities

Though a major airport serving one of the richest cities in the world, LaGuardia is often derided as extremely outdated. Luckily, renovations are currently ongoing, with an expected completion date in 2022. A new concourse in Terminal B opened in December of 2018 as part of these renovations. There are no hotels at the airport, but a cluster of them are located just outside the airport’s grounds along Ditmars Boulevard. A couple of more hotels (at a lower price point) are located closer to Astoria Boulevard. Most of these hotels offer a free shuttle service, too. Duty-free shopping is available in Terminal B and various other small shops are located in the other terminals. There are also plenty of food options in all of the terminals. Lounges are available in all terminals. Hydration stations where you can refill your water bottle are also available in all terminals. Currency Exchange is available in Terminal B and ATMs run by the same company are available in all terminals. It is, however, as usual, best to take cash out of normal ATM (one owned by a bank) and/or rely on using your credit/debit card as your home bank is extremely likely to provide a better exchange rate than the currency exchange and its ATMs.

Nearest gas station

What is the nearest gas station to the airport and most convenient for filling up before dropping off a rental car depends on which rental company the car is rented from and which direction you are coming from. Multiple stations are located on Astoria Boulevard near Advantage’s facility. If renting from one of the other suppliers, a cluster of stations can be found just off Grand Central Parkway before getting to the airport.
