Car rental alternatives in Philadelphia, PA

Keep it brotherly
in Philly

As the city where the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, Philadelphia is perhaps best-known as the birthplace of American democracy. But a visit to the City of Brotherly Love wouldn’t be complete without a peek at the Liberty Bell, a big bite out of a Philly Cheesesteak, and a run up the steps from the Rocky movies.

There’s even more to discover in this bustling city — and when you get your Philadelphia airport car rental alternative delivered, you won’t waste any time jumping in.

Philadelphia Favorites

From the historical to the gastronomical, Philadelphia is packed with activities for the curious visitor with

Reading Terminal Market

Started in 1892, this is the country’s oldest farmer’s market. It’s a hot spot for cheese lovers to find local artisan offerings, and is known for a mind-blowing pork sandwich.

Independence National Historic Park

Free to the public, this park includes famous historic monuments, like the Liberty Bell, Congress Hall, Franklin Court, and Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was signed.

Eastern State Penitentiary

This old prison-turned-museum is a favorite to tour for a look at the cell where Al Capone was once held, and for the audio tour that Steve Buscemi narrates.

Brian is awesome. This was my first Turo. I rent lots of cars all year long from the major car rental companies, and this was by far the easiest, fastest and most convenient car rental ever. Highly recommend!
Tim - June 25, 2018
Brian was great—extremely fast response time. I’m unconvinced that Turo offers any improvements over Zipcar or a traditional car rental, however.

If all Turo hosts were as professional as Michael, Turo could grow to be as big as Airbnb and put car rental companies out of business.

Maha made my trip (and first time traveling with my infant) an absolute breeze. The car was super clean and fun to drive, he was very communicative and easy to reach with questions and both the pick up and return processes were easier than any car rental place and I used to travel regularly for work. I would absolutely recommend Maha’s services if you’re traveling to and from the greater Philadelphia region!

I absolutely loved renting this car! Catherine is so nice & I fell In love with her car! It’s so quite, runs great & probably my favorite experience of renting a car from Turo! Best part is after about 2 hours of driving total in the 24 hour period of renting it, it only took $4 to fill the tank! I’m shocked and just so happy, definitely renting this car again!!!

Great car and great host. I flew into PHI and coordinated the vehicle pick up and drop off easily with Edward, he provided a tutorial of the Model 3 since it has many unique features that are worth learning to enjoy the experience of a Tesla. Car was in perfect condition, extra clean, and well worth the cost for the vehicle. The auto-pilot made my trips to and from the meetings I had easier and less stressful. Would rent from Edward again.

Jordan
Scion FR-S 2013
I had a great experience renting Laurence's FR-S! He was flexible about pickup and delivery, and the car was a blast. Since it was very cold out (30s) the weekend of the rental, he swapped over to winter tires to keep the ride safe in potentially-freezing conditions (all discussed beforehand, and he gave me the option to cancel). Besides the tires, the vehicle was as-described and clean. I'm looking forward to renting again to try it out on the summer wheels!
Jordan S. - November 10, 2019

I have now booked one of Victor’s cars 3 times in a row for back and forth travel to Philadelphia. Victor is kind, easy to work with and is great with proactively planning for Airport Arrivals and Departures. In addition, he is personable and always helped me with loading my luggage and disassembling my child’s carseat. And worth mentioning, he cares about his cars and that they are safe and running well for Renters. I would definitely rent from Victor again; he stands out in the Turo crowd.

Michael was amazing! Not only did we receive a little care package of goodies upon delivery and return of the car. He went the extra mile to make sure we had a booster seat for my 6 year old. Great communication, very friendly! Car was in great condition, low miles. Perfect for what we needed. Would rent from Michael again next time we are in Philly! Would recommend him a hundred times over! Thank you so much Michael!

Fraz and his Accord are both great. His communication was quick and informative and I felt like I could reach out with any questions that I had. He was super detailed and helpful upon pick up (he may or may not need a ride if he's solo, so pad in a few extra minutes for that; it was totally fine for me!). My drop off was super early, but he made arrangements for me to take the car to the PHL economy parking lot. Easy peasy! The car was super clean, drove like a dream, and made me feel super badass! PLUS, it's a hybrid so it's great on gas! I would (and will) rent again if I'm in the area!
