If you want to see everything Philadelphia has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Avis.

Make your upcoming getaway to Pennsylvania more enjoyable with an Avis car rental.
With over 1 million living in Philadelphia, you should find plenty to see and do in this bustling city. You are sure to have an enjoyable time here, thanks to Philadelphia's college-town amenities. Whatever you pick to do first, you'll want to check out as much of Philadelphia as you can during your trip. Once you get behind the wheel of your Avis rental car, you'll be on your way to discovering more of this exciting city.
We work with the finest car rental companies in the industry. Avis was the first rental car business to be located in an airport and they have over 70 years of providing vehicles to travelers from all over. With an assorted fleet of vehicles and over 5,000 locations worldwide, Avis is sure to offer you a great experience from pick-up to drop-off.
We try to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving your car ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
You will need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Philadelphia is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Avis's policies to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Philadelphia. For bigger cities, like Philadelphia, you may find navigating and parking easier in a smaller vehicle. Commute times in Philadelphia are close to 32 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Philadelphia trip can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Avis does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental topped off. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Avis. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Philadelphia is a large city, so there is going to be a lot to do. You may not want to concern yourself about your mileage limits if you are planning to see what else Pennsylvania has to offer.
Avis usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Philadelphia, having your own auto can come in handy. When you're ready to explore more of Pennsylvania, you can leave wherever you like, without having to coordinate a ride-share or wait for the bus.
