There are 6 terminals at JFK, four at LaGuardia, and three at Newark, and so so it is important for your driver to know exactly where to pick you up. This can be done by either entering your flight number when you book your transfer, or specifying the terminal you are arriving at when you enter your pickup address.

If you are booking a transfer to the airport, your driver will wait for you outside your chosen address or inside the lobby of your hotel, anywhere in and around New York.
