LaGuardia Airport is one of the large airports found in New York, a city famous for its attraction of the Statue of Liberty. There are also another two airports serving New York, referred to as the JFK International airport and the Newark Liberty International Airport. LaGuardia is the smaller of the three, however, still handles almost 25 million passengers every year. It’s official IATA code is LGA. Arriving passengers often need some form of transport, and a rented car is often considered as most convenient. Budget LaGuardia Airport is one of the car hire companies present, and they are very popular for low car rental rates and excellent customer service.
LGA is served by almost twenty airline companies, which fly in from various local and international destinations. The majority of the airport’s flights are, however, domestic. The airport is a hub for Delta Air Lines, and a focus city for American Airlines. There are four terminal buildings at LaGuardia Airport, all of which are equipped with a variety of shops and restaurants, as well as other facilities that include banking and currency exchange services, Wi-Fi connections and information centres. Information counters for ground transportation are found in every terminal in the arrival areas.

Drivers between the ages of 21 and 24 will pay an additional charge of $35.00 per day. Young driver fees is applicable to each ‘young’ driver registered on the rental contract.

Examples of credit cards accepted are Mastercard, Visa, Diner’s Club Int’l, American Express, AT&T Capital, GE Capital, Discover, PHH and Sears.
