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.

Fraz was very communicative and flexible even after I provided incorrect arrival and departure times. He maintained consistent messaging during both pickup and return which made the process very easy and minimized any stress. The car was clean and ran well. I would definitely rent from Fraz again in the future.

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!

Marcos is definitely an all star Turo renter. I can’t imagine a better renter or a cooler business traveller’s car. Honda Accord hybrid sipped fuel like a Prius with the ride and features of a luxury car. Thanks Marcos!

My second time using him ... everything was great except some minor details like the seat belt to the driver doesn’t work.. I got the car with little gas and also the car makes a funny sound when braking but other than that my trip was fine and I would still rent from him again

I have rented on Turo for years, and renting with Patrick might have been my best experience ever. Patrick offered to pick us up from the airport and even though our flight got delayed for 1.5 hours unexpectedly, he was still able to pick us up even though it created an inconvenience for him. He also dropped to the airport which was very convenient as well. And Patrick himself is a very real guy, great conversations, and amazing customer service. The car itself was in amazing shape and was a smooth drive throughout from Philly to NY and back. I would recommend Patrick to absolutely anyone.

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.

Despite the check engine light coming on traveling back from our trip, owner of car was great from the start of me picking up the car until the issue we had with the car , when i did make him aware of the problem he kept in contact with us to make sure that we was okay coming back, and made it very convenient with picking and dropping the vehicle off . Inside of car was cleaned , everything was fine inside ! If you want someone with good customer service you could definitely choose him .

Can't begin to describe Maha's flexibility upon pickup and return of the car at the Phil. Int. airport, as well as his straightforward and friendly communication. The car itself was great, unbeatable mileage thanks to the hybrid functionality and it drove well. Also very competitive price-wise. I certainly recommend Maha to anyone in the area and should I ever get the chance to fly back to Philadelphia, it's obvious who I'll rent a car from.
Simone C. - January 11, 2019

This was my first time using Turo, and everything went well. The host accepted my reservation without any message, which concerned me at first, but then sent clear instructions just before the trip began. I will rent a car here again.

Casey

I needed a rental in a pinch and came across Turo. Sarathy had a promotional code to save $25, on my first rental, which I was able to use on one of his cars. The car was available as expected and easy to access via the provided instructions. When the check engine light came on in my rental, which started at 5am, Sarathy was available to coordinate a swap for a different car in the same area and I was on the road within less than 10 minutes. He was also communicative through the trip and flexible with time when I was returning it after the recent snowstorm in the Philadelphia area. The car itself was clean and drove nicely, and seemed dependable. I would recommend Sarathy's service.

Bryan went above and beyond during our trip to Philadelphia - I'm definitely renting his Tesla again the next time I'm in town! He was extremely quick to respond to questions, he was very friendly and pleasant to my girlfriend and I, and he bent over backwards to accommodate our tight schedule. He dropped his beautiful Tesla off at our hotel in the morning, walked me through all the quirks and features, and even picked it up right at the airport terminal the same night on our way out of town. He saved us a TON of hassle and we had an absolute BLAST driving through the city in the best car on the road! I can't recommend him and his excellent Tesla enough!
