Top Tips For Renting a Car in Queens

  • Jaywalking, especially in residential areas, is very common throughout Queens. If you are in a residential area on a one or two-lane road, then it is even more likely to happen. Make sure you keep your eyes on road and you stay vigilant for any would-be jaywalkers that may pop out in front of you.
  • Planning on picking up a rental car before heading to Queens? If your flight is to JFK International Airport, the rental desks are located on the Arrivals level in each terminal. Flying into Newark Airport instead? In that case, you will find the rental car desks at Stations P2 and P3 on the AirTrain. As for LaGuardia Airport, the rental car center is located just off-site but there are shuttles in front of Terminal A to take passengers to passengers there.
  • Keep your eyes open for taxi drivers and stay out of their way. They are fearless drivers and will cross 3 or even 4 lanes of traffic if necessary. The easiest option is the path of least resistance, so simply let them drive around you and do their thing.
  • Queens, like much of New York City, experiences a daily rush hour. Drivers can typically expect the morning rush hour to pick up at around 7:00 a.m. and run until 9:00 a.m., while the afternoon rush hour starts at around 4:00 p.m. and goes to 7:00 p.m. In general, the Grand Central Parkway during rush hour is one of the roads hit by congestion, so drivers are advised to avoid it if possible.
