KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Philadelphia

  • A rental 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 rental 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 rental cars in Philadelphia for ₹ 4,759 or less
  • Book your rental car in Philadelphia at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in Philadelphia are around 89% more expensive than other car types, on average

Philadelphia car rental experiences: the best tips from KAYAK users

Insights shared by verified travellers who rented a car in Philadelphia 
BillieJun 2024
If renting an EV ask more questions if it's your first time renting/using one. EV charging stations are not compatible to every car, at least not yet( heard that will be a new required regulation?). Ask about % of charge required for return. What fee will be applied per day or if returned below a certain charge.
Verified travelerApr 2024
Rent the Full Size Pickup Truck. That is the way to go. Smooth ride, lot's of room inside, respect on the road.
Verified travelerDec 2023
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

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

Their office was closed, I couldn't pick up my rental, and they refused to issue a refund. It was borderline impossible to reach anyone on the phone, and email support wasn't helpful either, so now I have to dispute this with my bank. Never again, NEVER rent from Sixt. 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.

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.

Overall is was terrible. The line to see an agent was over an hour long wait with the air conditioning ineffective. Then once the agent was completed you had wait for another hour to get the car because all cars were being serviced and the backlog was terrible. Once you got your car it wasn’t even well cleaned and wreaked of cigarette and cigar smoke. The only bright spot was an agent who was going out of her way to help as many people as she could to expedite the line. She was incredibly helpful and polite.

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.

The employees at pick-up were polite, but the vehicle was not ready and we were forced to wait for more than 30 minutes. Unfortunately the waiting area was hot and uncomfortable, increasing the displeasure over this delay. The vehicle was good and in good, but not perfect, condition. Drop off was simple and easy. If you have the time to spend on the likely delays, Dollar may be a good choice. If you want prompt service, you should look elsewhere.

Everything was fine. There was a bit of a wait to pickup the car & mixup on car itself compared to the rental agreement. But everyone handled it fast, smooth, & positively. Drop off was smooth. No issues at all. The only inquiry or recommendation is to enhance the Dollar rental experience to be more like renting for Hertz, but there might be reasons I am not considering. Anyway, all good. Electronic car rentals themselves need some help, but that's the car & EV charging station issue not the rental company. Thanks

The car ended up being”upgraded “ because they didn’t have the car we were supposed to receive. Everything was more expensive then what we had put on reserve online The cars upholstery was filthy with stains . The agent Sharon , had me place my CC card in the machine for approximately 5 min before doing anything then stated my “ card was declined”. I knew that was impossible, but my husband used his instead. I then spent over 1 hr with CC company on the phone for them to to tell my Cc card was fine and it was machine error I told her how the agent had me place card in machine for an extended period and company agreed that that could have been the problem. Then we noticed my husbands card had been double charged $415 twice and another $200(this we understood) but not the $415 twice. Today the charges are off except the original. Please tell me why you agree to a car that is$130 for not even a full day and you are charged $215? I understand we pre payed gas and easy pass but this seems like alot when you agree to $130 /day

Reserved a car for $300 and paid $146 up front. Went to dollar and they charged my card $800 and said I would be refunded on return. They refunded $200 and only charged $600 but never compensated or refunded the $146 I initially paid. The person disregarded my previous reservation, upcharged me for a car I didnt want, lied to my face, and rushed me out of the store so I couldnt ask questions. Idk how i ended up wtih kayak because I reserved with priceline and changed at dollar so now I think they scammed me by booking through another agency to up my fees and I have never in. my life had a worse customer service experience. Horrible. Dont do business with this company that scams its customers. Incredible waste of money and staff was unwilling to help.

Great shuttle drivers. Fairly easy pick up and easy drop off Car smelled like marijuana when I picked it up, that wasn’t good Guys at counters try to upsell insurance even though I had already prepaid. Tried to upsell road side assistance. The person in front of me I think was lied to by their agent.

They had incorrect duplicate order that messed up my entire booking process. They then gave me the wrong car. Charged me for a full tank even though the car was 1/3 full. Had wrong mileage. When I dropped off, they tried to retroactively change my daily rate, increasing by 30%. Absolutely awful experience.

Customer service was not good. At pickup, customer service representative made it seem like I was required to have the insurance. I thought I had paid for everything up front then all of a sudden I have another $167 in insurance. It was very confusing. I will not be using Hertz again due to the fact it seemed like they were trying to get every cent out of you instead of working with you to give you a good car experience. If you pay ahead online they should not be trying to sell you more stuff at pickup that you don't need.

Single worst car rental experience I have had. I’ve tried to rent from this location multiple times, multiple confirmed prepaid bookings. This is the first time they have had a car. The people working here have never heard of customer service. They answer personal phone calls during helping customers, lie to customers faces, and walk away from you in the middle of trying to get your car and return your car. I have never seen anything like this Hertz location. Shocked they are allowed to operate.

HORRIBLE. . I landed in Philadelphia only to find they had closed at 11pm, and I was stranded. . My flight was set to get in at 10:30 and was a little late. I had 1) pre-paid for the car and 2) Checked in earlier that day (via an email from thrifty to speed up the time to get my car.) I had no other option other than to get a hotel room (got to bed at 1pm) and return the next morning. When I arrived at thrifty and told them what had happened there was NO apology. The response was that it is listed on their web site and I should have known, The woman then asked if I had booked through a third party and explained that they do not always post that information. Quite a lame excuse. These days, most people book through a third party and it is up to Thrifty to be sure any third party they use has all their information. I will never use them again. It was bad enough that I was stranded, but the lack of any remorse, apology and customer care was very unprofessional.
