Top tips for renting a car in Wilmington

  • When you visit the city of Wilmington either for business or vacation, you'll want to move around the city conveniently. From Philadelphia International airport, there are many attraction sites within 50 miles that you shouldn’t miss. There are public transportation options such as taxis and buses, yet, buses typically have designated routes, and taxis charge by mileage, so you'll probably end up paying more. This inconvenience and inflexibility signal that you might want to consider car rentals in Wilmington. With a rental car, you'll be able to visit the Philadelphia Museum of Arts or the Kimmel Center of Performing Arts, located only 9 miles (17min) away.
  • Philadelphia International Airport and Wilmington Airport are the two major airports in Wilmington, and both have several on-site car rental companies in designated places. These companies include Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, Thrifty, and National. Most of these car rentals in Wilmington provide complimentary shuttle and pick-up services. After picking your luggage at Philadelphia International Airport, head over to Zone 9 from the exit terminal and get a shuttle to the offices of your chosen Wilmington car rental company.
  • Wilmington is a city with a high population rate and an even higher influx of vehicles. When driving on Wilmington roadways, be prepared for every form of traffic, human and motor vehicle. Most people in Wilmington love to cycle, and others prefer motorcycles to cars, meaning you’ll be sharing the highways with motorcyclists and bicyclists alike. Some pedestrians tend to jaywalk or text on their phones while walking. Exercise caution while on the road to avoid a catastrophic incident. Also, watch out for other drivers who may be negligent in observing traffic rules, as well as natural weather elements such as snow, mist, or rain that can make driving dangerous.
  • When it comes to traffic gridlocks, especially around rush hour, Wilmington is one of Delaware's most affected cities. Between 7am-9am and 4pm-6pm, most roadways experience traffic congestion. If you can't afford to be stuck in traffic for more than 30min, it’s advisable to use the roads when traffic is lowest, before and after rush hour. Similarly, avoid using Interstate 95 during critical hours and use GPS tracking while driving on unfamiliar roads.
  • Book your rental car in Wilmington at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Wilmington are around 51% cheaper than other car types, on average
