WASHINGTON CAR RENTAL AGENCIES - WASHINGTON DC

Washington DC CAr Rental AgenciesWashington Car Rental - Most visitors to Washington are surprised to learn that Washington has some of the worst traffic congestion in the United States. The most congested roads are located where the Capital Beltway (I-495) meets interstates. If at all possible, avoid these roads during the morning and afternoon rush hours. In addition, the main access arteries of Washington can also become clogged at rush hour: Massachusetts Ave, Wisconsin Ave, Connecticut Ave and Georgia Ave.

However if you need to rent a car, especially to reach the sites that are outside Washington, there are numerous car rental agencies located within the metro area. Most major Washington Car Rental Agencies and local agencies are represented in Washington. Most agencies maintain offices at the airport, downtown and at Union Station. Car rental prices fluctuate with the tourist season. The best advice to obtain the best price on your car rental is to book early and search for fares through online sites and the individual rental agency’s website. In addition, credit card companies, automobile associations and professional organizations may offer special deals for their members. Also remember to bring your driver’s license and keep in mind that most major agencies won’t rent to anyone under the age of 25.
