Car Rental Philadelphia Airport

When you fly into the Philadelphia International Airport you will find that renting a car is easy and convenient. Upon exiting your plane and heading to baggage claim you will see information phones for each of your car rental options at this airport.


Note that if you happen to need a special vehicle that has hand controls, you will easily be able to obtain one from anyone one of the companies that serve Philadelphia International Airport passengers. However, also note that if you do need one of these cars you must request one from the company of your choice a minimum of 72 hours before you will need the rental. While sometimes they can accommodate you right away, other times they can't. This is why it is best to make arrangements in advance if you need a car with hand controls. When you place your reservation be sure to let the agent know about your needs.


Zone 2, located outside the airport, is the location where you can pick up your rental car. You will find Zone 2 right outside of baggage claim. No matter when you arrive at the airport obtaining your rental car is always a quick, easy and convenient process.
