Newark airport car hire

Airport Code: EWR

Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey is an excellent alternative to the busier JFK International Airport. Located just 8 km south of downtown New Jersey, it is a major hub for Continental Airlines as well as several international carriers. While Newark is a transportation Mecca and well serviced by public transportation, it is equally as easy to navigate with your own Newark Airport car hire.

The city of Newark is often overlooked in favor of the huge and well known Manhattan, which is only 8 km east. However, the city has its highlights well worth stopping for. Its downtown area has managed to retain much of its turn of the century architecture, and features impressive monuments such as the gothic Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart.  It features a variety of museums and art galleries to fill your time. Get around to the attractions in a car hire from Newark Airport.
