Hi there,

Does anyone have any recommendations for car leasing whilst we await delivery of our new car please? we need a car from when we land till this arrives which I guess will be around a month.
Is it cheaper to rent a car for one day from the airport, then source a car locally? (this will be Morristown and that area.)

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Just rent one from a car rental place, it doesn't matter which one in terms of location. If you need one from the airport, then rent it there. Just reserve it and tell them how long you need it for.

If you can avoid renting from the airport do it. While the rates will not vary greatly, you will be hit with an almost 14% airport tax that you can avoid if you rent from a local shop.

As far as I know, there is no short term leasing option. Long term rental is probably the best way to go. Also, keep in mind, a rental car in NJ come with built in Liability Insurance. Something you would have to purchase on your own for a "leased" vehicle.

Yes, a lot of rental places have Monthly rates. I would advise looking on Travelocity or Orbitz for the best rates.

Rent a daily car to get you from airport to hotel, then look at LOCAL rental places.
