Auto Europa New York La Guardia Airport

LaGuardia Airport is located approximately eight miles from Midtown Manhattan, which is a borough of New York City. The airport is found in the borough of Queens, and alongside Flushing Bay and Bowery Bay. It is also nearby to the neighbourhoods of Astoria and Jackson Heights. Is has had a few names in the past, for example, the North Beach Airport, but it is now simply the LaGuardia Airport, and has the official code of LGA. The airport offers various forms of ground transportation, but perhaps the best is a rented car from Auto Europa. The LaGuardia Airport car hire companies all offer very competitive rental rates and vehicles that are ideal for leisure or business travellers.

The airport of LaGuardia is served by many airline companies, and is a hub for Delta Air Lines. It is also a focus city for American Airlines. Passengers could arrive at any one of four terminal buildings, depending on the airline company with which they are flying, and will find many useful amenities in each. Although there may be some car rental counters in the arrival areas of the terminals, the majority of the car hire companies present have shuttle buses that collect their customers and take them to their car hire offices. The shuttle services are available from the lower levels of each terminal, and are free of charge. There are also buses operated by the airport that run between the four terminals should a transfer be required. Auto Europa can be contacted for further information regarding their shuttle services and the location of their rental offices.

Auto Europa has over fifty years of experience in the car hire industry, and has always strived to provide the lowest rental rates possible, without compromising the quality of their services. Their customers receive a guarantee of the best prices and twenty-four hour service. They also have the advantage of paying no credit card fees and no cancellation fees provided that the reservation is cancelled before forty-eight hours of the agreed collection time. Online reservations are the simplest to complete, with a quick three-step booking process. All car categories and example cars in each can be viewed, and customers can hire additional items of equipment for their vehicles, such as child seats and satellite navigation systems. Online rates are often the most cost efficient as well.

Auto Europa LaGuardia Airport offers cars in Economy, Compact, Midsize, Standard, Fullsize, Premium, Luxury and SUV categories, and also has vehicles similar to the Dodge Grand Caravan in the Mini class. This car is ideal for groups of travellers, as it can seat up to seven people and has room for several luggage items. It is also equipped with an automatic transmission, as most cars are in the United States, and air conditioning for comfortable travel in warm weather. The Luxury and Premium cars available are similar to the Buick Lucerne and the Mercury Grand Marquis, while SUVs available include the Ford Escape and Jeep Grand Cherokee. If a more affordable vehicle is required, select the Economy or Compact categories, with vehicles such as the Chevy Aveo and Chevy Cobalt. These smaller cars will give great mileage, and are considered as eco-friendly. Their rental rates are also friendly on your pocket! They don’t, however, offer as much room for luggage, therefore be careful not to hire a car that is too small. Midsize cars such as the Chevrolet Cruze are also popular.

Most of the vehicles mentioned above may be arranged as an Auto Europa one way hire, allowing them to be returned to a rental location other than LaGuardia Airport. One way hires should be considered by all who are only going ‘one-way’, and who are perhaps on a departure flight from one of the other two New York City airports. The LaGuardia Airport car rental companies have rental offices at all major airports in the United States, and at many downtown locations as well. Confirm with Europcar to where your hire car may be driven, as sometimes there are restrictions. For example, cars may often not be driven into a different country, and sometimes may only be taken to nearby American states.

LaGuardia Airport has been designed with the needs of disabled passengers in mind, with suitable restroom facilities, pavement ramps, elevators and reserved parking spaces that are convenient for terminal access. The airport’s car rental companies also have services to assist physically challenged individuals, such as the rental of hand controls. Auto Europa’s hand control equipment may be requested by persons with a lower limb disability, and are used on certain cars with an automatic transmission. From LaGuardia Airport, hand controls are free of charge. A person unable to drive due to a disability may also still be the primary renter of a vehicle, even though he/she will not have a drivers license. In this case, the primary renter should be accompanied by an able driver who meets the minimum rental requirements. This second-driver is free of charge.

Under usual circumstances, the primary renter of a hired car should be 25 years of age or older, however, most car rental companies allow persons 21 years of age to hire a vehicle, and in New York City, persons just 18 years of age or older. Keep in mind however, that younger renters are subject to pay higher rental fees for young drivers insurance. Besides the minimum age requirements that should be met, all drivers on the contract should be present to collect the vehicle, and should have a valid driving license on hand. The primary renter will also require a major credit card to validate the rental, but a debit card can usually be used for the final payment of the rental.

Auto Europa at LaGuardia Airport will be happy to assist with all further enquiries.
