Avis Rental Car Comes to the Cape May-Lewes Ferry!
Rental Cars Now Available!
Taking the Ferry as a foot passenger provides a great experience, and now we're excited to bring you another answer to the question, "what happens when I get to the other side?" From shuttles to bus service to electric bike rentals, there have always been a few options to choose from. Now, we're happy to announce that Avis and Budget rental locations are open in both the Cape May and Lewes terminals, and will serve both ferry customers and the neighboring communities.
“We’re excited to be able to offer more Avis and Budget cars for rent at Ferry Terminals in New Jersey and Delaware. Expansion at these key locations allows Avis Budget Group to help travelers explore new destinations and their own communities,” said Regina K. Zappone, Local Market District Manager of Philadelphia and the Tri-State Area at Avis Budget Group, Inc.
“With the presence of Avis Budget, our foot passengers now have another transportation option to use to explore the resort communities on both sides of the Delaware Bay,” said Jen Shivers, Assistant Director of Ferry Operations, noting that shuttle bus service on both sides have fixed destinations. “We also believe it’s a positive for locals who are looking to rent a vehicle.”
Inside the Lewes terminal, the car rental service counter is located adjacent to the terminal sliding doors from the parking lot.
The rental car service counter inside the Cape May terminal is located on the left as you proceed through the main terminal entrance.
In addition to the counter space inside both Ferry terminals, Avis Budget has ten (10) parking spaces adjacent to each Terminal Building reserved for vehicles ready for customer rental and twenty-five (25) parking spaces in the general parking area for additional inventory. Signs will be placed at these spots indicating they are for Avis Vehicles only.
