KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Philadelphia

  • Before drivers get behind the wheel of Philadelphia car rentals, it is important to know about the seatbelt laws in Pennsylvania. For any passenger over 18 years old riding in the front of the vehicle, it is a requirement to wear a seatbelt at all times. One important thing to remember is this is not a primary law, so the police cannot pull you over solely for not wearing a seatbelt. If the police pull you over for something else and see you were not wearing a seatbelt, you can get a ticket for this. Any passenger in a vehicle under 18 years old must wear a seatbelt no matter where they ride in the vehicle. Children under the age of eight must be in an appropriate child seat or booster seat when riding in a vehicle.
  • When operating car rentals in Philadelphia, the laws in Pennsylvania state that drivers using an interactive wireless communication device while driving a car is a primary offense. That means the police can pull you over if they see you using a handheld device while driving. Specifically, police are looking for people that are texting, emailing, instant messaging, or browsing the internet. You can use a handheld device as a GPS or to make or receive phone calls so long as this is being done in a hands-free manner.
  • Philadelphia offers several great annual events that make a fantastic reason to get Philadelphia car rentals during your visit here. One of the best reasons to come to Philadelphia early in the spring is to head over to the Philadelphia Auto Show that you will find at the Philadelphia Convention Center. Another trendy event that makes a great choice to get Philadelphia rental cars is to head to Philadelphia in March for the annual St. Patrick's Day parade. Hop in your rental car and head down to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway to watch this event.
  • 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.

I loved everything

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.

2.0 Poor

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. 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.

2.0 Poor

Jul 2022

KAYAK
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.

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 car was dirty, smelled and the key fob ran out of batteries hours into the trip. They could not have cared less when I returned it. Have had terrible customer service at this particular budget before. There’s a reason it’s often the least expensive.

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.

I landed at the airport and waited for the Payless shuttle van to show up. I saw the shuttle vans for Avis, Hertz, Alamo, etc. No Payless van. After 20 minutes, I tried to call the Payless location and they were closed. I had to rent another car from a company that was actually open (Avis). Please refund me my money for this rental since they were closed and I never picked up a car from them. Thanks.

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.

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.

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.

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.
