The Payless Car Rental at Newark Liberty lies just west of the terminal, among the other options for Newark Liberty International Airport rental cars.

The outstanding deals you'll find and the extra savings you can enjoy by joining the free Perks Club will have you driving off with extra money in your pocket to enjoy in the Big Apple, just a few miles east of our EWR car rental location.

You'll be able to see the iconic Manhattan skyline from your plane's runway and feel like you can almost touch it. Newark Liberty is the closest major airport to the city you can get into town in less than 30 minutes (32 if you count the 2-minute backtrack from the EWR Payless car rental lot). You'll arrive via the Holland Tunnel that takes you to the Lower West Side, a stone's throw away from the new Freedom Tower, the famous Tribeca and the equally famous archway at New York University.

Of course, you could be landing at Newark Liberty Airport to explore New Jersey. In that case, the Payless Car Rental location is conveniently located right by the Jersey Turnpike that will take you anywhere you want to go in the state. FYI: it's less than two hours to Atlantic City and only 19 minutes to Hoboken, home of old Blue Eyes himself.
