EasyCar Car Rental at Philadelphia International Airport

Philadelphia International Airport is the busiest airport in the state of Pennsylvania, with just over thirty million passengers per annum, and has the IATA code of PHL. It is a public establishment with commercial flights to many other American cities and to international countries as well, and is owned and operated by the City of Philadelphia. An airport of this size has all the amenities required by its passengers, including car hire companies, such as Easycar Philadelphia International Airport. By rented car is often considered to be the easiest way to travel the city and surrounding areas, and affordable car rental rates can be obtained from the majority of the companies available.

Philadelphia Airport has seven terminal buildings, of which one (Terminal A-West) is the international terminal. All international flights besides those from Canada will arrive at this terminal. The others are used for domestic flights, and are served by various airline companies, however, Terminals B and C are the main areas for operations by US Airways, the airline company for which the airport is the third largest hub. All passengers will find the airport’s facilities within easy reach of the arrival areas and the terminal buildings fairly easy to navigate, as there are signposts that lead the way. Most of the terminals are connected by walkways, only Terminal F requires a shuttle service as it is further away. Easycar as well as the other Philadelphia International Airport car hire companies have shuttles to their locations as well, which may be used free of charge. The shuttles leave from Zone 2 outside of the baggage reclaim areas. Passengers may also contact their car rental company by using the information phones in the arrival areas.

Easycar is a car rental company that is well known around the world for their competitive prices and excellent customer service. Their low rates include an online booking discount, unlimited mileage, third party liability insurance, collision damage waiver, theft protection and all licensing fees and location surcharges. Customers therefore need not be concerned about extra unexpected costs at the end of the rental period. The customer may also cancel their reservation free of charge within twenty-four hours of the booking, provided that it is also before forty-eight hours of the agreed vehicle collection time.

Additional items of equipment can be requested from Easycar at the time of reservation. A child seat will be required by persons who are travelling with small children, and a satellite navigation system is recommended for all drivers, in particular those who are not familiar with the Philadelphia road networks. Always specify the age of your child when booking a seat, as they are available in various sizes. There are extra charges for these items, but they are worth the few dollars paid. The GPS units are high quality devices, enabling drivers to easily pinpoint their current or next location/destination. They may have a selection of languages and various points of interest that are pre-programmed. Child seats and navigation systems can be hired over the rental counters, but there is no guarantee that they will be available. An advanced booking is therefore recommended.

To hire a car from Easycar, a major credit card and valid driving license will be required. The primary renter and all additional drivers registered on the contract will also need to be at least 21 years of age, although 25 is actually considered to be the age of persons qualified to hire a car. Persons younger will pay higher rental rates for young driver fees, and may not be permitted to hire larger or specialty cars. The credit cards accepted by the Philadelphia International Airport car rental companies include American Express, Diner’s Club Int’l, Discover, Mastercard, Visa, GE Capital, PHH, Sears and AT&T Capital. This card is used at the start of the rental period. Persons who qualify may also supply a debit card with the Mastercard or Visa logo when collecting the vehicle. Final payments are accepted by credit or debit cards.

From Easycar, one way hires may be arranged, and hand controls for disabled drivers may be requested from the location of Philadelphia International Airport. Hand controls are free of charge, and are used by persons with a lower limb disability. They assist the driver with the operation of the brake and accelerator pedals. The device is fitted to certain types of automatic vehicles, and should be reserved in advance. One way hires from Easycar allow the driver to collect the car from Philadelphia Airport but then return it to another location. The return location could be in the same state (Pennsylvania) or even in a different state. How far the car may be driven is best confirmed by Easycar.

Passengers arriving at Philadelphia Airport have a great number of vehicles from which to choose, and will find that all cars provided are in good condition.

They also have reasonable car rental rates. Some luxury cars available include the Buick LaCrosse and Cadillac DTS, while SUVs that can be hired are the Chevy Equinox, Ford Escape and Dodge Durango. The Chevrolet Uplander is a good choice for travellers in groups of up to seven, and is a Minivan.
