There are taxi services at all the commercial airports, however, due to the extensive distances, fares are negotiated and you should also expect to pay a round trip fare. Fares can be anywhere from $100 to $300, which is not unreasonable since the fare from Kennedy Airport to New York City is approximately $40 and that distance is only about 20 miles.
Another option is to reserve a car/limousine from a variety of car services which you can find in our Directory. These services usually have a set fee which they will provide you when you make your reservation. One service we like is LI Moon Star limousine & car service who provides a very comfortable ride.
A third option is to rent a car from the airport or from the location where you are starting your trip.
