Just wondering if someone could comment on our transport plans...
We are arriving at JFK at around 9:30pm, so I suspect won't be out until 10:30pm (is that correct?)
We are then thinking of hiring a car service to our hotel in Newark (Holiday Inn). Probably either Dial 7 or Allstate (any opinions/experiences with either of these companies?)
We're flying out the next morning to Chicago (from Newark), hence the hotel in Newark overnight. Were going to stay in Manhattan, but thought it would be better to do a big late night transfer to Newark (given we will probably be jetlagged anyway...that way we can have a little bit of a sleep in before our midday flight).
We did consider a taxi but it seemed to be more expensive than the car service. Shuttles don't seem to run past 10pm and the multiple train transfers with luggage and a 5 year old, probably aren't a great idea!
What do you think?
The cost seems to be around $85 (+ tolls and gratuities). Tipping is around 15-30%, right?
