Now you can borrow, or share, a Zipcar from all three major New York City area airports, LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy (JFK) in NYC and Newark Liberty on the other side of the Hudson River. Zipcar was purchased recently by Avis Budget Group, which is making Zipcars available from Zipcar branded parking spaces at each Avis airport facility. The Zipcars include fuel efficient Honda Civic and Nissan Sentra models, starting from $12 per hour and $89 per day. As with all Zipcar reservations, gas, insurance and 180 miles per day are included, and you must be a Zipcar member to get the deal.
