Location information for Philadelphia

Introduction

The American city Philadelphia was once the second largest city of the British Empire (after London) and the center of the original thirteen American colonies. The city played a central role in the struggle for independence of America. The old downtown with the Independence Hall is still evidence of this. Philadelphia also houses the largest collection of works by Rodin outside of France, in the Rodin Museum.

Population

The city itself has over one and a half million inhabitants, but almost six million people live in the entire urban area of Philadelphia.

Location

Philadelphia is located in the northeast of the United States on the Delaware River and over seventy kilometers southwest of New York. The city lies on the Fall Line of the Piedmont plateau and the lower coastal area. This is illustrated by the differences in height in the city: the highest point is 145 meters high while the lowest point is at sea level.

Economy

Philadelphia has a diverse economy. Several large companies are headquartered in the city, like for example the internet company Comcast, large insurance companies, electricity companies, and chemical and pharmaceutical concerns. Tourism plays a considerable role in local economy.

Airports

The airport of Philadelphia is situated just south of the city, right on the Delaware River. Philadelphia International Airport is easily reachable by rental car. From the center of Philadelphia you follow the Delaware Expressway (I-95) which leads straight to the airport. The route to the airport is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

Philadelphia has a good public bus transportation system, although it's not the quickest way to move around in town. Apart from the 'normal' bus lines, there are eight trolley bus lines. In addition there are three metro lines (two underground and one above ground). In summer months (May-October) a trolley bus runs for tourists past most attractions, between the Museum of Art in the west of town until Penn's landing in the east.

Traffic and Parking

Philadelphia is a large and busy city and it can therefore be difficult to find your way around. Finding a parking space in the city center isn't always easy either and also quite expensive. There are two ways to pay for street parking: via parking meters (only coins) or by buying a ticket at a kiosk. In and around the city center there are several parking garages where you can park your rental car, but these are also quite expensive.

Hotels

Philadelphia has a large supply of accommodation, although the supply of budget accommodation is limited compared with other American cities. Many conferences are organized in the city and it's also a popular tourist destination. It's therefore recommended to book your hotel room in Philadelphia well in advance.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
