FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Rental Car New Castle Airport New Castle, Delaware

It is officially known as the Wilmington Airport and it is primarily used by light aircraft which is evident by the number of enplanements  (passenger boardings) that are recorded annually. On average, there are about 80,000 arrivals and departures yearly, and this is despite the airport not having a regularly scheduled passenger airline service. It sits on about 1,250 acres, plus it has 3 asphalt runways with a majority of the aircraft being single engine planes. Some of the neighboring cities include Newport, Elsmere, and Wilmington and you can book car hire at New Castle Airport to explore these cities on a day road trip.

Discover New Castle Airport Using Our Rental Car

New Castle is a small town with a modest population of about 6,000 people and it covers a total area of 3.52 square kilometers (9.12 kilometers squared). However, its major attractions are concentrated in a 5-kilometer radius. Take for instance the First State National Historical Park which is a 13-minute drive (6.3 -miles) from downtown New Castle.

From here, all you need to do is walk to the New Castle Court Museum in less than a minute since both of these attractions are situated on the same (Delaware) Street. This museum properly defines the border between Pennsylvania and Delaware because it sits in the middle of a 12-mile radius.

After a few hours at the museum, an 8-minute drive (3.9-miles) to the Delaware Memorial Bridge. You can only cross the bridge in a vehicle which is why the car rental from New Castle Airport comes in handy. It gives you a spectacular view of the Delaware River and either of New Jersey and Delaware.

Day Road Trips From New Castle Airport

The day road trip will take you until U.S. Route 40 and from here you can turn and head over to the New Castle Battery Park which is just a 5-mile (10-minute) drive from the Delaware Memorial Bridge. It is an important landmark which commemorates the political division of Pennsylvania from Delaware.  

From here you can head over to the New Castle Range Front Lighthouse which was built in 1876. It is still actively used today and it is one of the reasons why the New Castle region of Delaware is such a popular tourist destination. So visit HAPPYCAR.com and find a car that is tailored for you today!
