We got different information about leaving our car at their parking lot when my husband and I called separately. We also got conflicting information about the time to return the rental. In the end it all worked out, but it just seemed concerning that we'd get a different answer when we each called

Staff in New Windsor was extremely helpful, polite, and efficient!We had significant problems with the rental vehicle. The sliding doors on the minivan would not lock with the remote. The brakes on the Dodge Caravan were sketchy, and the ride from Eagle Lake down into Ticonderoga in upstate NY was about 7 miles down a steep highway. The rotors are extremely worn, and the minivan squealed all the way down the steep incline while the disc brakes bumped over the rotors. The minivan would not start at the end of the day while we were leaving Fort Ticonderoga. I called the 800 assistance number on the key ring, and THEY WERE NO HELP AT ALL. First they told me they would send someone out to jumpstart the vehicle, but I was worried that it would happen again. (We had a hard time starting it once before.) They suggested that after getting it started, I drive to the nearest Avis rental which was in Plattsburgh and 90 MILES AWAY!!! I told them I did not want to drive 180 miles round trip, so they suggested that I wait for road assistance to arrive and was told that roadside assistance would text me with a time. I waited 45 minutes with no text, and called them back. There was no answer. Fort Ticonderoga was closing, and I needed to leave as the gates were being locked! Roadside assistance did not pick up after that, and I was on hold for 45 minutes. I called the Burlington, VT Avis, and they told me to call Plattsburgh Avis which was extremely helpful. Plattsburgh Avis told me to call roadside assistance and request a two-way tow to exchange out the vehicle. I finally got back to the Avis roadside assistance, and the lady told me it would take 4-6 hours to do a two way tow. I told them that was unacceptable and the Fort was closing, and I needed to get the minivan out of the park. The lady said she would check with management and call me back. The park service was nice enough to stay and be prepared to reopen the gate for roadside Assistance WHICH NEVER CAME!!! The lady NEVER called me back, and I never got a text from anyone about roadside assistance. We finally got the van restarted ourselves. I called Avis roadside assistance again, and was on hold for 90 MINUTES just to tell them not to come, we got it started. That is the worst rental that I have ever had, and the Emergency Roadside Assistance number is a joke. I don’t know what I would have done if we had not gotten it started!!! I will look elsewhere for additional rentals. Tammy Curtis

Hotwire is listing Alamo at SWF for car rentals. I booked on hotwire one month in advance for a 1-way rental from NY to Fla. I get to SWF to find out they are only open when they have a reservation from an arriving flight. UGH! There is no one there and when you call Alamo 800 #, they say, oh yes, sure they are open, have airport security page them as they must be just away from the desk momentarily. Clueless. I call the number listed on the notice pasted at the desk. They tell me to get to the Enterprise location 5 miles away, they will honor the reservation. I wait 30mins and pay $12 for a cab to Enterprise at 63 Route 17K in Newburgh, only to be told they will honor the reservation, but not the price. Two very unfriendly, very unhelpful men could not have cared less about my predicament. UGH!! I call Alamo 800# again and they are sorry but since covid has effectively closed the airport, they are not offering what they call local rentals to anyone not arriving via plane. When I tell her hotwire/priceline/kayak are still offering rentals at SWF, she says she is sorry, but cannot control what they do. I learned my lesson NEVER RENT from ALAMO or ENTERPRISE.I learned my lesson NEVER RENT from ALAMO or ENTERPRISE.

Nothing .The proper information on your website would be nice. The location i was allowed to book at online did not even have anyone working the location .drove all the way to the pick up location to and empty service desk. called to find out that they do not service customers who are not fly ins , which should have been disclosed because I then had to find another service that cost me over $300 dollars more for my needs and an additional $200 charge deposit on top of it.I could have been stranded .do better.

I wa not able to pick up the car! Drove to the airport to get the car and there was so no one there! There was a small sign that redirected me to an enterprise in town. When I got there they tried adding $300 to my fee. Left without my car. Never using Alamo or enterprise again.

Top tips for hiring a car at New Windsor Stewart Airport

  • The real benefit of car rental at New Windsor Stewart Airport (SWF) is that four major rental car companies have customer service counters right in the terminal building just across from the security screening and baggage claim area. What is even better is that all the cars that are available for rent are right in the parking lot just outside of the terminal building as you exit the baggage claim area. This makes the rental car process quick and easy at this airport.
  • When you are ready to return your car rental at New Windsor Stewart Airport, you can do so by following the signage you will see on International Road as you approach the terminal building. Proceed to the parking lot where you picked up your rental car and then park your car in an appropriate space for your rental car company. Note your gas level and mileage, lock the car, and then drop your contract and your keys in the provided lock box for your rental car company.
  • Even though this is a smaller airport, there are still ample transportation choices to get you from the airport to the center of town. This includes things like buses, taxis, and rideshare cars. The problem with all of these compared to renting a car is that they can cost quite a bit, or they can be quite cumbersome, especially if you have a large group with a lot of baggage. When you take it all together, you will see that car rental at New Windsor Stewart Airport is a great combination of cost savings and convenience, especially for longer trips in this area.
  • Like any airport in the United States, this airport is going to have busier times for travelers. While the morning hours from around 6 am to 8 am can be busy, generally, the busiest times at this airport are going to be between 3 pm and 5 pm most weekdays but especially on Fridays as people travel here for weekend trips. This can make the process of New Windsor Stewart Airport car rental here take a little longer, so it is best to make sure you reserve a car before your trip, especially in a smaller airport where rental car fleets can be smaller.
