Alamo Philadelphia International Airport
Philadelphia International Airport, with the IATA code of PHL, is found nearby to the city centre of Philadelphia, in the state of Pennsylvania. It is one of the busiest airports in the United States of America, and the largest airport in its state. It serves all areas of the Delaware Valley, and is a hub for US Airways, a local airline company with flights to many other cities in the country. Arriving passengers often prefer a rented car to travel the city and the surrounding areas, as a private vehicle is more convenient. Alamo is one of the Philadelphia International Airport car hire companies available, and they are popular amongst persons travelling for leisure purposes.
In order to rent a car from Philadelphia Airport the primary renter will need to meet the minimum age requirements as set by Alamo, and should be in possession of a major credit card and valid driving license. At most of Alamo’s rental locations, the primary renter (and all additional drivers registered on the rental contract) should be at least 21 years of age. However, persons 25 years or older will be able to hire from any vehicle category, and will not be subject to the higher rental rates charged to younger drivers. A person of this age will also be able to use a debit card at the start of the rental period. Although payment for car hire is not made when the vehicle is collected, a hold will be placed on the renter’s account for the estimated rental charges. Younger drivers will use a credit card for this purpose. By all renters, however, at this rental location, a debit card (with the Mastercard or Visa logo) or a credit card can be used for the final payment.
A driver of a rented car should have a clean driving record, and a drivers license that has been issued in the United States of America. Canadian-endorsed driving licenses are also accepted by the Philadelphia International Airport car rental companies. A passport should be provided by a person from a foreign country, along with a return airline ticket. Sometimes an International Driving Permit is required.
Alamo car rental reservations are often cheaper when they are completed online. Nowadays, most people also consider online reservations to be more convenient, as a car can be arranged from the comfort of their home or office. It brings peace of mind as well when you know that the car you need will be ready for your arrival at Philadelphia Airport. One way hire services can also be arranged online. This is when the rented car is returned to a different location. Online, the customer will tick the box where it asks if the vehicle will be delivered elsewhere, and specify the desired return location. Alamo one way hires can usually be returned to any location in Pennsylvania and to locations in neighbouring states such as New Jersey. A cross-border rental will need to be arranged if the car will be taken as far as Canada. This is not always permitted. Keep in mind as well that one ways are not always available for every car category.
Alamo customers arriving at Philadelphia Airport will need to proceed to Zone 2 outside of their terminal building (arrivals level) and then take a shuttle to the location of the car rental companies. Alamo operates free shuttle services which are convenient for all passengers. They are frequently available, however, information telephones are also available in the baggage claim areas. Alamo is not very far from the terminal buildings, at 1 Arrivals Road.
Your reserved vehicle will come with equipment such as child seats and satellite navigation systems only if these items are requested along with your reservation. In the United States, all passengers in a vehicle are required by law to wear seatbelts, therefore a child seat is important for your little ones. The GPS units available for hire are state-of-the-art pieces of technology, ideal for all travellers who are unfamiliar with the Philly area. They offer precise directions to any location, in voice or visual mode, and have a selection of languages. Various points of interests that are pre-programmed are useful as well. A disabled driver could also request the use of Alamo’s hand control equipment from the car hire location of Philadelphia Airport. Hand controls are ideally used by persons with a lower limb disability, as they are connected to the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle. The device will require an advanced reservation, as it is only available on certain types of vehicles with an automatic transmission. However, most vehicles hired in the US are automatics.
Alamo Philadelphia International Airport provides a large selection of vehicles for hire in various car categories. The smaller cars are often much cheaper to hire, however, are not always large enough for the comfort of several passengers and a few luggage items. Economy cars are similar to the Chevrolet Aveo, Compact cars are similar to the Nissan Versa and Midsize cars are similar to the Toyota Corolla. Any of these cars are ideal for city driving, or for longer distance travelling provided they offer enough interior space for passengers and luggage. Popular vehicles a little larger include the Ford Fusion and the Chevrolet Impala.
A wide selection of SUVs are available from Alamo as well, for example, the Ford Escape, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Suburban, Lincoln Navigator and Hummer H3, and some even seat up to seven passengers. A Minivan, the Dodge Grand Caravan, seats seven as well, and the Chevrolet Express is a Passenger Van able to accommodate up to fifteen people. Further information is available from Alamo, at Philadelphia International Airport.
