Car rental in Philadelphia: All you need to know

Historic must-sees like Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell reside in Philadelphia – totemic spots amid bustling neighborhoods where you can grab Philly cheesesteaks and see public art. A car rental is your ticket to all that and more, what with Pennsylvanian state parks and national battlefields all waiting nearby.

How can I bag the cheapest car rentals in Philadelphia?

CarRentals.com can oblige. Just enter your dates of travel and you’ll find listings of the most wallet-friendly auto companies in good old Philly. Of course, you can also save some dollars by:

  • - Having just one named driver;
  • - Making the time to browse and compare rates online;
  • - Looking to pick up the car at inner-city outlets, not at the airport;
  • - Completing your booking long before you come to see the Liberty Bell.

What car rental companies have places in Philadelphia?

You’ll get mainstream brands like Avis, Hertz, and Enterprise, which even have multiple locations across the metropolis. And you’ll find smaller companies and budget-conscious car rental providers, which usually have their flagship shops near the airport.

What particular types of car can I get in Philadelphia?

Scores of different vehicles are on offer in big Philadelphia. Whether you’re a fly-in business traveler or a family of sightseers, there’s sure to be something to pick. Consider:

Car Type Best for Category includes
Economy Couples keeping the travel budget for tours of Independence Hall Ford Fiesta, Toyota Yaris, or similar
Full-sized Family groups who’d like a little legroom and luggage space on their Philly vacation Ford Fusion, Toyota Camry, or similar
Premium Working travelers heading to a meeting or official event in Philadelphia Nissan Maxima, Chevrolet Impala, or similar

Do I need to be a certain age to get a Philadelphia car rental?

You sure do. Most car rental companies impose a minimum age of 21. That said, you might not be able to choose sports cars, convertibles, or luxury vehicles until you’re 25, and there could be extra fees applied to your booking.

Is insurance a must when booking Philadelphia car rentals?

Insurance is a must, yes, but whether you need to add it to your booking depends on if you’re already covered with an existing policy. Some people get peace of mind from their current car insurer or credit card provider. If that’s not you, then it’s possible to opt for cover when you come to purchase over CarRentals.com.

Are there things to know about fuel policies when bagging your Philadelphia car hire?

The most common fuel policy of all is full-to-full. It might sound like a tongue twister, but it’s actually the fairest way of dealing with gas when it comes to car rentals. All you need to do is ensure your tank is topped-up when you return the auto. The bonus is that you’ll get a full tank when you arrive.

Are there Philadelphia car rentals with unlimited mileage?

It’s now common for lots of car rentals, in Philadelphia, the rest of Pennsylvania, and the US, to come with unlimited mileage as standard. If not, you could consider adding it in if you’re looking at doing longer drives, though you’ll need to make sure there aren’t any other small-print restrictions on where you can venture to.

Can I get one-way rentals starting in Philadelphia?

With so many major companies offering car rentals in Philadelphia, organizing a one-way hire shouldn’t be an issue. The only thing you’ll need to make sure of is if the brand you’ve gone with has a drop-off point in the place you’re heading to.

The 3 top sights to see in Philadelphia

Philadelphia might have some charming small-town vibes, but it’s no pint-sized place. Having a car will mean you can really up the ante on the sightseeing front. Here are some places to tick off:

  • - Make a pilgrimage to Independence Hall – a hallowed place in American History, where the Declaration of Independence was adopted back in 1776.
  • - See masterpieces at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where paintings by Pablo Picasso, El Greco, and Manet all hide behind a stately exterior.
  • - Get spooky at the Edgar Allan Poe House, which was once the home of the revered American ghost author and creator of the weird and wonderful.

3 must-do day trips from Philadelphia

Your own set of wheels will let you whiz out of bustling Philly for somewhere totally different. Here are just some of the day trip options:

  • - Drive west to Harrisburg, the state capital of Pennsylvania, which has enthralling museums and grand architecture.
  • - Hop into New Jersey for Atlantic City to the west, where the beaches are dotted with neon-lit casinos a la Vegas.
  • - Go north to the Poconos Mountains, which have ski fields and verdant valleys for hikers.

What’s the parking scene like in Philadelphia?

For fly-in visits to see the sights of Downtown Philly, there are oodles of metered spots that offer stays of a few hours. For longer, you could look to leave the rental car in a garage. There are loads across the metropolis, with fixed rates for fixed-duration stays.

Kick start that Pennsylvania adventure with a Philadelphia car rental courtesy of CarRentals.com. Before you know it, you’ll be cruising between Independence Hall and out beyond the Delaware River.
