Reasonable Car Rental from LaGuardia to Smithtown, NY

by luckymom58 Online Now Jun 20, 2009 at 8:29 AM

Does anyone know of any reasonable car rental places between LaGuardia and Smithtown, LI/Expressway exit 111 ? We are flying into LaGuardia on Friday,
July 3rd and return to LaGuardia Sunday, July 12th. Usually it's around500 for a week give or take but they want1,000 even w/ my entertainment coupon!

Trying to avoid having family drive us into the Airport. If we could get a location close to LaGuardia, we could take a taxi or car service -- but most of the car rental places aren't open on Sundays.

Does the Train go out from LaGuardia to Long Island?

    Hi. Welcome to VT! Do you intend to use this rental car every day, or are you intending to rent it just for this 1 round trip? After making a cursory check on Mapquest, LaGuardia is only about 40 miles from Smithtown. When I take a cab, from Staten Island to Kennedy Airport (on the south side of Queens; LaG is on the north side), I'm charged around75 for the 30 mile trip. Of course, we don't know how large your party is, if you are a City person, how seasoned a traveler you are (your profile is completely blank), etc.
