I was scheduled to have a regular size sedan. However, received a mini van upon arrival. Was suggested that I could wait for a sedan if / when one was going to be returned that same day.

Pros:

Agent was professional and thorough. Good mileage.

Cons:

The car was not clean. There were bits of food in the console and the inside of the windshield was smeared. There was cleaning spray residue everywhere. I had alcohol wipes and cleaned for 1000 mile trip. Pick up time was long because of 1 agent and line. I reserved a Mazda "or similar". Learned belatedly Mazdas are never available. Manual was missing so never figured out how to set cruise control.

They left me high and dry, didn’t have a car for me even though I booked over a week beforehand and wouldn’t even help me get my money back! Just gave me a number to call the corporate billing office to get my money back for THEIR MISTAKE AND LACK OF PROPER PLANNING.

Car had a heavy dose of Febreeze, but tobacco smoke was still noticeable. I had reserved a Kia Soul and was given a Toyota Tacoma. So much for good gas economy on a long trip. There was trash in the bed of the pickup when I took it. No assistance, just, here's the keys, the parking lot is two blocks away. Good luck. Probably never using them again, TBH.

They should ban the practice of requiring a zero balanced electric bill and not accepting chime credit cards, keeps a lot of minorities from renting vehicles any longer, I was unable to rent a vehicle.

Car hire insurance in Wilmington

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Wilmington car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Wilmington.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Wilmington car hire.

Top tips for hiring a car in Wilmington

  • When you visit the city of Wilmington either for business or vacation, you'll want to move around the city conveniently. From Philadelphia International airport, there are many attraction sites within 50 miles that you shouldn’t miss. There are public transportation options such as taxis and buses, yet, buses typically have designated routes, and taxis charge by mileage, so you'll probably end up paying more. This inconvenience and inflexibility signal that you might want to consider car rentals in Wilmington. With a rental car, you'll be able to visit the Philadelphia Museum of Arts or the Kimmel Center of Performing Arts, located only 9 miles (17min) away.
  • Philadelphia International Airport and Wilmington Airport are the two major airports in Wilmington, and both have several on-site car rental companies in designated places. These companies include Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, Thrifty, and National. Most of these car rentals in Wilmington provide complimentary shuttle and pick-up services. After picking your luggage at Philadelphia International Airport, head over to Zone 9 from the exit terminal and get a shuttle to the offices of your chosen Wilmington car rental company.
  • Wilmington is a city with a high population rate and an even higher influx of vehicles. When driving on Wilmington roadways, be prepared for every form of traffic, human and motor vehicle. Most people in Wilmington love to cycle, and others prefer motorcycles to cars, meaning you’ll be sharing the highways with motorcyclists and bicyclists alike. Some pedestrians tend to jaywalk or text on their phones while walking. Exercise caution while on the road to avoid a catastrophic incident. Also, watch out for other drivers who may be negligent in observing traffic rules, as well as natural weather elements such as snow, mist, or rain that can make driving dangerous.
  • When it comes to traffic gridlocks, especially around rush hour, Wilmington is one of Delaware's most affected cities. Between 7am-9am and 4pm-6pm, most roadways experience traffic congestion. If you can't afford to be stuck in traffic for more than 30min, it’s advisable to use the roads when traffic is lowest, before and after rush hour. Similarly, avoid using Interstate 95 during critical hours and use GPS tracking while driving on unfamiliar roads.
  • Book your car hire in Wilmington at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
