Newark International Airport in the United States

Newark International Airport is located 75 miles northeast of Philadelphia, 12 miles southwest of New York City, and 3 miles south of Downtown Newark. It is one of the three major airports serving the New York Metropolitan Area. This airport has had 2 name changes; Newark Liberty International Airport and Newark Metropolitan Airport and is the primary airport serving the American state of New Jersey.
The Newark Airport opened October 1, 1928. When it didn’t have its own terminal, the Art Deco Newark Metropolitan Airport Administration Building served as one. This building was built in 1934. In 1953 the North Terminal finally opened. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979 and is now a museum and Port Authority Police headquarters.
Through the early 1970s, there was a single terminal building located on the north side of the field; by what is now Interstate 78. Present Terminals A and B were opened in 1973. In June 1988 terminal C was finally completed and opened. In late 1996 other facilities as the overflow parking lots, garages and car rentals were added.

Rental car companies are all accessed via sky train from the main terminals, so choosing a company based on price or past history will not mean you must travel off site. I suggest you have a general idea of the main highways you need to access from the airport ahead of time, as the signage comes quickly, and it is not always easy to pick out the highway you want if you have no idea. GPS or your smart phone is a good idea. Newark airport is convenient for spots in New Jersey, as well as New York City, so don't be scared off that you might be in NJ versus NY. You may actually be closer to your destination than JFK or LaGuardia. When you get back to the airport for your return flight, I suggest you allow a few extra minutes, as my experience with the security lines has been that they are no very fast. 20 to 30 minutes to get through security did not seem uncommon. And remember that there are a million things to do in New Jersey and the surrounding area. Have fun.

If you're coming from New Jersey Transit/Amtrak, plan a half an hour of extra time. I thought picking up a car at Newark versus in the city would be no big deal because it's easily accessible via NJ Transit from Penn Station. What I didn't realize is that the rental cars are on the exact opposite end of the airport and Airtrain takes a solid 30+ minutes to get there, doubling the commute time. Further, the Airtrain broke down on my way back and I was stuck for hours, unable to get to the train station because there is no other transportation available between the terminals and the train station, not even cabs. That said, the attendants at the Airtrain were incredibly patient and helpful - more so than I generally expect in a situation like that. When the Airtrain is functioning, despite taking a fairly long time, it is a door-to-door solution that makes Newark car rentals more accessible than almost any other airport in New York (for Manhattan residents) when the price is right.

Many airport employees available for assistance and information. Airtran makes getting around Newark airport easy. Terminal C has the best food options. Love the tablets they provide for entertainment. Newark airport should add water filling stations for water bottles. Having to fill a water bottle with a standard fountain is messy and takes too long.

Travel light. Try to do the check in before hand or before getting to the airport. When renting a car get ez pass and full insurance. Do research of the most interesting places to go in the state you are going. Important: use gps. Wether is from your phone or a gps device. Trust me it will make your trip very easygoing.

Travel light! It streamlines your travel experience. The less you have with you, the less you have to worry about. The signs at Newark are easy to understand and they're renovating the airport to look more sleek and modern. Restrooms were sparkling clean!

Have a physical copy of your reservation available Talk to locals (can be car rental personnell) to understand road requirements (tolls,etc). In major areas it's well worth having EZ pass toll Ask rental personnel where the nearest gas stations to the airport are if you want to fill up instead of prepaying

Arrive at the airport early. Gates may change, this will reduce stressful last minute runs to the gate. Bring a refillable water bottle. Most airports have refill stations. This will allow more money for purchasing food at the airport. Pack your bags in anticipation of what will need to be unpacked at the security screening. This will make everyone's experience a more enjoyable one since the line will move quicker.

1. Always reserve the smallest size car, assuming it's enough for the amount of people and luggage requirements. 2. Don't wait for the last minute, reserve at least a week ahead. 3. Try off airport locations to save on fees, and airport charges. 4. Take a week rental if renting for 4 or more days, as it will usually be cheaper. 5. Check travel or coupon websites for discount codes / coupons. 6. Join the company's frequent travelers club, as it will usually get u discounts and/or upgrades.
