For two more days (or until sold out) you can purchase a discounted airport car service voucher via Groupon. This service is provided by Eastern Car Service, which I must disclose I’ve never used before, but typically (for me) when it comes to getting to/from the airport I take the cheapest one I can find.
With this Groupon deal, you can purchase one of three options:
- $25 for a one-way transportation to or from LaGuardia Airport (a $43 value) –> This could be more or less expensive than taking a cab depending on where you are going (if you are going to downtown Manhattan this will absolutely provide you with some savings).
- Typical car service: $33 (Dial 7 Car)
- Typical cab: ~$25 (meter rate)
- $29 for a one-way transportation to or from JFK or Newark Liberty International airport (up to a $55 value) –> This is super cheap! A taxi or other cab service will be much more expensive.
- Newark car service: $48 (Dial 7 Car)
- Newark cab: ~$85 (meter rate)
- JFK car service: $48 (Dial 7 car)
- JFK cab: $45 (flat rate)
- $35 for $70 worth of airport-transfer services for new customers (*Customers can apply $70 worth of airport transfer services to airports throughout New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, DC, and more. See the full list of airport rates here.)
The following rules apply to all of the options:
- Expires Aug 31, 2012
- Limit 1 per person
- Valid only for option purchased
- Reservation by phone required
- 24hr cancellation notice or fee up to Groupon price may apply
- Subject to availability
- Must be 18 or older
- New clients only
- Valid within all boroughs except Staten Island
- Extra fee for tolls, parking, and wait time may apply
- Services must be used by the same person
For those knowing they will need a car to/from NYC, this is a great value! Keep in mind the various shopping portals as well where you can get bonus points/miles or cash back when making a Groupon purchase. You can view and purchase this Groupon here.
