Tips for renting a car in Philadelphia Airport

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Philadelphia Airport including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on March 1, 2024.
  • Because it is situated on the southern edge of Philadelphia about 15 minutes from downtown, the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) makes an ideal location for securing Philadelphia car rentals. You can easily access rental cars at PHL by going to Zone 2 at the arrivals curb outside of all baggage claims where you can board a complimentary shuttle to one of seven agencies. When it's time to return your rental car, simply follow the Rental Car Return signs as you approach the airport.
  • Driving a Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) rental car through Philadelphia will allow you to keep your appointments, visit family and friends, attend social events, and see the sites all according to your own agenda without being limited by public transportation schedules. Whether you delve into American Revolution history, run up the same Philadelphia Museum of Art steps as Rocky did, drive to the Jersey shore, or take a road trip to see the Amish, a rental car in Philadelphia gives you the freedom to choose where to go and when.
  • As you are driving your Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) rental car through the city of Philadelphia, there are a number of things you want to be aware of. First and foremost, Philadelphia is a city full of tourists, especially March through October when the weather is nicer. Be on the constant lookout for pedestrians and people on bicycles, scooters, and segways. When it rains in Philadelphia, the streets can get slick quickly, so reduce your speed and leave more space between you and the car in front of you. When it snows, use the ice scraper and snow brush in your car to clear your vehicle of snow and ice before you get behind the wheel.

Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car rentals in Philadelphia Airport, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on March 1, 2024.

What documents do I need in order to rent a car from the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL)?

You will need a valid driver's license with your picture on it, and this license must prove that you are at least 21 years old. However, keep in mind that some car rental agencies will add an extra daily fee to your rental contract if you are younger than 25. You will also need a major credit card in your own name. If you’d rather pay with a debit card, ask whether your rental car agency accepts them. Some car rental agencies will require that you show proof of your own insurance if you opt not to buy theirs, so be prepared with your paperwork.

If I want add-ons, do I need to reserve them?

Yes, you should always mention any add-ons that you want at the time that you make your rental car reservation to ensure that the agency has what you need in stock at the time that you collect your vehicle. Whether you need a GPS navigation device or a child safety seat, your trip to Philadelphia could be severely impacted if they were not available for you when you arrived to collect your car. For instance, according to Pennsylvania law, any child 8 years old or younger must be secured in a child safety seat appropriate for their size. So, things would get complicated indeed if the agency didn’t have a safety seat for you.

Can I drive my Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) rental car north into Canada?

Most car rental agencies will allow you to drive some of their vehicles across the Canadian border, but they will most likely not allow you to cross in a luxury or exotic car. F you plan to drive your rental car to Canada, mention this at the time you make your reservation so that the car rental agency can have the paperwork and insurance ready for you when you arrive to collect your vehicle. For instance, you  will need to obtain from them a Canada Non-Resident Insurance Card in order to cross into Canada. At the border, you will also be asked for your valid driver’s license, valid passport, and rental car agreement.
