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.

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.

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!

The car was perfect. The pickup location was away from busy traffic and in a nice area of philly. The car was clean and smelled nice. The VW golf is nice and tiny, perfect for parallel parking in the city and picks up well on the high way. Gas mileage is good. I ended up paying about $120 for the car. Michael responded immediately to my request for an extension of the rental and was flexible as well. Thank you Michael!

What an amazing experience! The car was clean, drove beautifully and Matthew made our experience easy and enjoyable. Due to unforeseen circumstances it would have been difficult to meet Matthew at the appointed time and location so Matthew made it easy by dropping the car off to us and then when I left a bag in the car, Matthew was kind enough to drop it off with the doorman at our building. I would definitely rent with Turo and Matthew again.
