I finally got someone on the phone form National, they assure me that they have a permanent guy, till 2 h after they close in case of delayed flight ..

So i should be good. Will report back.
Sounds right, Has a friend land at midnight when the location in airport closes then. He said he got there a half hour after "closing" time and there was someone there...

Which company?
I doubt Hertz leaves someone to serve customers even 1 minute after posted closing time

at tiny airports its common practice for all companies. They treat it like an FBO

at least 24hrs advance. It's almost always available online/app. Try making a reservation without logging in and then try logging in and you'll see availability upto a fullsize.
I only had one recent reservation which still showed unavailable. I DMd and the agent made the reservation.
Another trick to get it within 24hrs is to make the reservation for alter and pickup earlier. As long as there are cars on the lot, you won't have an issue.

What is the likelihood I will find a minivan on the executive aisle at LGA?
What cars have people seen there recently?

To get a car from the aisle I need to book specifically a mid-size car, or anything bigger than a mid-size car (standard SUV is the cheapest option for my booking)?

By "booking the aisle" you mean a mid-size car?

If it says Executive Area then yes.


If it just says Midsize - then no.
