September 2, 2021

Cape May-Lewes Ferry officials announced a partnership with Avis Budget Group to operate car rental locations at both the Lewes and Cape May ferry terminals.

Avis and Budget rental locations are open for business to serve both ferry customers and 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 services 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 sliding doors from the parking lot. The rental car service counter inside the Cape May terminal is located on the left as people proceed through the main terminal entrance.

In addition to counter space inside both ferry terminals, Avis Budget has 10 parking spaces adjacent to each terminal building reserved for vehicles ready for customer rental and 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.

To make reservations, call the toll-free number 1-800-352-7900, go to and or  call the Lewes Avis number at 302-313-9464 or the Lewes Budget number at 302-313-9724.

The Lewes terminal location will be open year-round from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on weekends.
