KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Philadelphia

  • A hire car will give you the ultimate flexibility during your stay in Philadelphia. Drive into the city from the airport in under 20 minutes and reach all sights and attractions conveniently with your car, such as the Lincoln Field Stadium to see the Eagles play, or other places of interest outside of the city, such as Princeton University, which is less than an hour by car away, or Atlantic City, which is just over an hour’s drive.
  • The easiest pick-up location for a hire car is at the Philadelphia International Airport. Various companies offer vehicles here, including Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz. Information and pick-up is located at the Ground Transportation Information desks at the baggage claim area, but the airport is signposted throughout, so finding the right desk should be no problem.
  • When driving in Philadelphia there are some things to bear in mind, such as the red light cameras, some dare-devil cyclists, and the difficulties of finding a parking spot. Make sure to drive with patience and attention, as fines can reach hundreds of dollars quickly. Watch out for side track cyclists and opt for a hotel with an included parking space so your vacation will go smoothly.
  • Especially when venturing out of the city core, road conditions in Philadelphia can be challenging, so adapting your speed is crucial. Driving through the rush hour should also be avoided if possible, which is usually between 7 and 9 AM and 4 and 6 PM. The I-76W is especially affected with commuters clogging up the street. Also bear in mind that winters in Philadelphia can include snow, sleet, and ice, so ensuring that the vehicle is properly equipped is important.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Philadelphia for €40 or less
  • Book your car hire in Philadelphia at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Philadelphia are around 30% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Intermediate car hire in Philadelphia are around 9% cheaper than other car types, on average

Use Hertz. Avis was double the price.
Verified travelerJan 2024
Make sure that the company funds you eligible to rent a car otherwise you can find yourself in a big situation like I did however, Avis did not turn me down
TomDec 2023
When returning the car be prepared to drive a big loop of the departure and arrival area before coming back around to stop the car off
Verified travelerNov 2023
Should you need to rent a car from the Philadelphia airport, your only consideration needs to be Payless Car Rental.
KiranOct 2023
Train station is good location. The man was good that assisted
AngelaNov 2023
Know whether you will be parking in a garage or on the street. If it’s an RPP enforced area, get a visitor’s pass from the Philadelphia Parking Authority to avoid getting ticketed. Never leave valuables in your rental. Double check to make sure your vehicle is locked.
AlinaSep 2023
Maybe call ahead and confirm that they have an actual car onsite for you
Verified travelerSep 2023
Ensure your rental is at the train station rather than the airport.
JimOct 2023
Be aware of exits to where you need to go
DannyJun 2023
Secure parking garages close to Independence hall made taking the hop on and off tours easy and got to see all the downtown sites as well as history of the sites and community. Did not experience any concerns because we did not stay past 6 o'clock any evening but was told by several locals and/or regular visitors to be off the streets downtown after dark.
AndrewJul 2023
Be sure to know where to pick up the rental vehicle shuttle. We were not successful in getting on a shuttle for Budget and ended up walking (only a couple blocks, but not pleasant with luggage in hot weather). On return, if flying American, be sure to know what terminal/gate you are flying out of as American uses 5 terminals at PHL. There are several gas stations near the airport, so filling a car before return is easy.
DAug 2023
Call the rental company to verify they have your car available before you go to pick up your car
Verified travelerAug 2023
Was not a rental for Philadelphia, we were driving from Philadelphia to Chicago.

Pros:

There was nothing over and above what was reasonably expected of such a transaction.

Cons:

I requested to extend the rental period, however, the customer "service" person stated the rate for the days during the extension was twice the rate I had for the initial rental. He could do absolutely zero, nothing, utterly not empowered as a frontline customer facing representative to even attempt to make it feasible for me let alone achieve "customer delight." When ending the call the representative asked if he could do anything else for me, I responded, "No, your competitor is going to." The representative had no response other than to read the script on his screen and say, "Thank you, have a nice day." A bot has more decision making power and understanding. I went to an Alamo competitor, rented for an extended period of time and started a corporate account with that competitor. And that's how easy it is to loose the lifetime value of a customer. You can do better.

5.6 Fair

Nov 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff was very good- they were well organized and working hard. There were lots of customers for limited staff. They were efficient and did their jobs well - there was no time for niceties other than polite service. They were inconsistent in enforcing the rule about "only the renter may come in the building". As a result my wife stood in the cold and watched other couples inside who elected not to comply with the stated rules. The car I got was adequate and functioned fine but was quite expensive (modest car- pretty high rate 140/2 days- tiny Hyundai) so it was adequate but not outstanding value. Return process was highly effective with good speed and no glitches. Again-staff is excellent. Overall- competent but modest value and inconsistent adherence to rules.

Cons:

Standardize adherence to rules. More staff on busy days. More product selection.

Oct 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

no, they were not helpful and they were misleading. Apparently they required an airline confirmation as we were paying with a debit card. 3 trips walking to the rental building in the rain the story changed slightly each time as far as what was need. never got the car and will certainly let all know that the Enterprise holding rental companies are incompetant.

Cons:

FIre the entire staff at the Philadelphia airport and hire a staff of concerned workers who work hard to keep their job and seek improvement, not the type that is hired and they feel entitled.

4.8 Mediocre

Oct 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff were decent. they were friendly and somewhat understanding. The car I received was not the car reserved. and the car received had a horrible odor that the staff tried to convince me of cleaning products. IT WAS NOT!!!! and it smelled so bad the whole trip i had to personally buy air fresheners. Literally!!!! and i know some of my stuff smelled like the car after a few hours. NO GOOD!!!!!!!!!

Cons:

I asked for a better smelling car before i took it off the lot and they convinced me that the smell would go away. No the smell didnt. Car ran smooth.... also it woulda been nice to have some gas in the car before leaving the lot too.

Their office was closed, I couldn't pick up my rental, and they refused to issue a refund.

What kind of name is that anyway? Trying to make a number into a verb? WTF. F these guys, bunch of clowns.

Drop off was fast and fine, but pickup was slow. There were many employees just standing around while only two (eventually three) were helping customers. Though the person helping us was pleasant and professional, she couldn’t type which added to our pick up time. All in all, this wasn’t a show stopper for us; we’ll use them again if their price is right.

They refused to give us a car we had pre-paid for because the computer told the counter we were "blocked," but they couldn't tell us why we were blocked or help us resolve it. We had to find another car on a Friday evening. Several days later, someone called and told us the accounting department had blocked us. Customer service repeatedly refused to transfer us to accounting to resolve the block and repeatedly refused to let us talk to a supervisor because they "were all in a meeting." Customer service hung up on us twice. It took over a week to get our pre-paid money back and in the meantime, we still had to pay for the car we ended up renting for a much higher price. Now they want a "cancellation" fee from us. They are, without a doubt, the worst.

Sixt Philadelphia told me that since I was picking the car up late that I would need to re-rent the car at walk-in prices (which makes no sense and about $200 more for the week) and that I would get a refund for the on-line booking. I paid $200 extra and am disputing the original $763 charge with Chase Bank as it was not refunded. Terrible experience.

They gave me a pickkup time that was the closing time of that location, so when I arrived to pick up a 7:00pm car at 7:20, they were closed. The individual there yelled at me for being late, and told me to call customer service, which I did. Customer service assured me that I could return and pick up the car at 7 the next morning instead. I asked if there would still be a car, because I know there is a window period for most car companies. He assured me there would be. The next morning, I was informed that I had lost my reservation because it was cancelled by the company when I failed to show up in the 2-hour "window period" from 7-9pm (when they were closed). Because I had lost my reservation, they tried to charge me $500 for a 4-day rental that previously had been $192. They yelled at me again for having shown up "late" the night before because they work 12-hour days and can't sit around waiting for people to come get their cars. It was only after I refused to pay it (because I had not been authorized to spend that amount) that they adjusted it down to $250. It was an awful and stressful experience.

Pros:

The car was like new, no issues.

Cons:

Why was I allowed to book a drop-off location that was closed on Memorial Day? The person at the Avis counter made ME call Avis to find a solution. The car also didn't have a full tank of gas.

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

The van never came to the airport and we had to walk to Avis,. Thent there were only two agents and we we #9 in line and that took an hour. The the car smelled terrible of smoke and there was bird mess all over the pasenger windshield. Upon the return thery were usin only one small bus to transport back to airport, a long line and again we had to walk back to the airport rather than wait the long time it wold have taken.

The vehicle could have been better (car was hit, inside was stained). The customer service could have been better (I wasn't given neither paperwork emailed receipts or agreement). Icing on the cake was the next door Avis employee blocking the airport shuttle bus to pick us up. When told to move her car, she was beyond rude as if the rental was free. She indicated she's aware of blocking the way and continued the casual conversation with the Budget employee until finished.

Pick up was over 30 mins after I called from airport to get to car rental. 1 girl behind counter ( Brianna )was nice / the other was rude

Pros:

Staff was incredibly friendly and easy to get the car at drop off and pick up.

Cons:

Pick Up at airport was much less than the other rental car companies. This company was MUCH farther than many of the other rental car companies and should be advertised as on site of the airport. Many of the other companies you can walk from the terminal to the rental company (and they had vans picking up 3-4x as much as this company) but this was at least a 5-10 minute drive.

Too much nonsense. They accept an online booking for "supplier choice" which was only $4 cheaper than me knowing which vehicle..then I get there and they tell me supplier choice is an EV. So they let me book a one way booking for less than 24 hours to drive hundreds of miles in an EV...wouldn't even be possible..its that kind of scam garbage I can't stand with these companies. So they charge me $36 more for a gas vehicle even though I can show them it was $4 more. Then the arm wrestling and lies about what insurance is required. I am just trying to get home, its exhausting to play the games.

I was told the fuel prepaid was required at the time of purchase. I returned the car with a half tank and was charged for a full tank. This is ridiculous and horrible business ethics. Dollar rental said this was required when it’s not so they ultimately stole from me.

I waited in line to get a car for 1.5 hours. I finally made it to the representative and was told I could not pick up the car because my multiple forms of identification and driver's license did not follow their rules. The manager then told me he could not offer a refund for the car. I have had a terrible time getting in contact with the company to get a refund for a vehicle I never drove off the lot.

Took two and a half hours to get the car. Only one agent checking people in and when I finally got through the line they were out of cars so had to wait for another car to be returned, cleaned and refueled. The staff was friendly especially given the circumstances.
