Ewr has high airport fees multiplied by days you have the car, it's worth it to check nearby area and take the NJ Transit train for 1 or 2 stops, or Uber over to Elizabeth or one of the nearby towns

Any recommendations for a monthly car rental near Brooklyn?
What are the rates for a mid size car?
Thanks.

if you make more then one reservation and you can check if the van has 8 seats or not, then you decide if you want it...

Thanks. Autoslash ended up finding me the same exact booking (with Hertz) through Priceline for $135, so I'm good to go.

Really good experience with Autoslash, not every search is accurate and sometimes you will click on a price and it will lead to nowhere but its a good starting point since usually you wont find a better deal then autoslash.

MODS: Can autoslash be posted to the wiki?
