Car rental at Philadelphia Airport (PHL): What you need to know

Your journey to the City of Brotherly Love won’t be complete without a stop at the Philadelphia Zoo or a day trip beyond city limits. Instead of tailoring your itinerary to public transportation schedules, or trying to flag down taxis, pick up a cheap Philadelphia airport car rental immediately after your arrival and cruise through Pennsylvania in style.

How do I find the cheapest car rental company for Philadelphia Airport?

Make your Philadelphia trip to-do list shorter by arranging car rental ahead of time. You can do it easily on CarRentals.com, which will let you browse cheap deals and potential vehicles from rental companies. If you don’t fancy paying over the odds, try to:

  • - Compare and contrast deals before making your decision;
  • - Book well in advance
  • - Have only 1 designated driver for the car.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Philadelphia?

You’ll likely have to be at least 21 years of age to book and drive a rental car in Philadelphia. It’s also worth checking if there’s an extra fee if you’re under 25.

What car rental companies are in Philadelphia?

You certainly won’t have any issues finding the right vehicle for you when you arrive at the terminal in Philadelphia. Major rental companies such as Alamo, Budget, Avis, and Hertz are all in attendance. Check user reviews online before deciding on the company for you.

Where are the car rental companies situated at the airport?

Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) is largely set within the city itself, which makes it a super-convenient gateway for visitors. As each car rental company has its own lot, it’s best to contact them ahead of time to check how to get there from the terminal, and whether shuttle buses are available.

Do I need an insurance for a rental car in Philadelphia?

You’ll need to secure suitable car insurance for driving your rental car. Before jetting off to Philadelphia, check if pre-existing car insurance, or credit card insurance, happens to encompass rental cars. If not, US citizens can purchase policies on CarRentals.com itself, or you can just buy from your chosen rental company.

What do I need to bring when picking up a rental at PHL?

Your driver’s license will be necessary when picking up and driving your Philadelphia rental car. If any extra drivers have been added for the vehicle, they’ll need to bring their licenses too. On top of that, remember to bring along the credit card used to make the reservation.

What fuel policy is available at the airport and which one should I get?

Most car rental companies will offer up a full-to-full fuel policy. It may sound like a mouthful, but it’s a simple arrangement: you pick up the car with a fully-loaded tank, and drop it back off with a fully-loaded tank. Just don’t forget to refuel, or you’ll have to pay a penalty fee.

Is it advisable to get a car with unlimited miles at Philadelphia Airport?

Whether you’re staying within the Philadelphia city limits or heading out to see neighboring towns and areas of rustic beauty, it’s always a good idea to check the mileage policy and see if it’s unlimited for your chosen vehicle.

Is it possible to hire one-way at PHL?

It may suit some visitors to return the rental car to a different branch from where it was picked up. Ask the rental company about this, and check what any potential extra charges may be.

What kind of car should I rent at Philadelphia Airport?

Philadelphia is a history lover’s haven, allowing you to delve into the earliest days of the nation at Independence National Historic Park. If you’re staying within the city during your visit, an economy car will tick the right boxes. If you’re here with a larger group, or want to drive out to surrounding places like Atlantic City in comfort, then a minivan or SUV rental may be just the thing.

Ready to start arranging your trip to the City of Brotherly Love? Browse and book the right deal on CarRentals.com and you’ll have your car ready to pick up at the airport, and you’ll soon be exploring one of the cradles of the United States.
