If you are visiting New York City for a longer time, check out our recommendations for your rental car needs. When making your booking look for offers on flexible terms, including no credit card fees, free cancellations, and 24/7 hotline support. Rent a car with Holiday Autos.

New York City has hot summers and cold winters, so the most pleasant periods to be there are spring and fall. The biggest crowds are during the summer, and the least expensive time to visit is in January and February. The average daily cost in the city is $500, which includes about $280 for a mid-range hotel room and $45 for dinner. You might consider a rental, especially when staying for a longer period of time. Better than a hotel! Book a vacation rental and expect more when you travel. Search for vacation rentals in New York City.

One more valuable suggestion for NYC visitors. Quite often you arrive with some luggage and have nowhere to store it. This is especially relevant for day trippers, but also for travelers who have checked out of their hotel and don´t want to return to collect their luggage. Deposit your luggage safely and enjoy your day!
