DC to JFK

Hey! i'm flying from JFK and need to drive up there. I keep trying these codes and i get good prices but they charge .30 per mile. Is there any good codes for unlimited miles?

Welcome genocist - don't really know your answer but this might be a good time to use your free days (assuming you're Emerald Club and have some free days in your account).

You may need a car for other reasons than just transportation to JFK, but if not...it would be much less expensive (and easier) to take Amtrak to NY-Penn Station, then take the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) to Jamaica Station where you can then take the JFK AirTrain.

3-1/2 hours + 20 minutes + 10 minutes = 4 hour trip and a cost of <$85 (plus no tolls, gas fill-up, or headaches).

Then I would suggest one of the discount bus carriers such a boltbus. They generally have good prices!
