There are ten car rental companies at LaGuardia Airport (LGA), New York. TravelMag.com evaluated them all and chose those that are tops in three different categories.
To get to LGA’s rental car center upon arrival, simply follow the Ground Transportation signs and then the Rental Shuttle Pickup signs on the outside of the terminal, where you can catch the free shuttle from the appropriate agency. Shuttles operate 24 hours a day and most take 5-15 minutes to reach the rental center, depending on traffic and your specific agency’s location.

The results of our review
To determine which rental car companies offer you the best options across our three categories, TravelMag.com carefully evaluated the services, fleet availability, reviews and policies of the agencies at LaGuardia Airport. Our findings are as follows.
Most affordable: Thrifty
Best for business travelers: Hertz
If you’re traveling to NYC for work, consider renting from Hertz. Hertz offers their Gold customers the “Carfirmation” service, which confirms reservations through text and emails and alerts travelers to the locations of their cars so that they can skip the check-in counter. It also shows other cars available and lets customers choose the one they want right from their mobile device. Additionally, the company provides “Zap Technology” which is a quick check-in process when the cars are returned. They also offer a service called “Acceler-Rental,” which allows drivers to rent a car from an automated kiosk even if they don’t have a reservation, which again, eliminates the need to stand in a lengthy line at the check-in counter. These perks helped Hertz top Zagat’s list as the best agency for business travelers.
