Car rentals at Washington Airport (DCA): All you need to know

Washington, D.C. is home to culture, cuisine, and of course the nation’s capital. There’s no better place to get an up-close look at the legislature’s inner workings than in D.C., but don’t sacrifice points on your itinerary by traveling via public transportation. Instead, see the sights on your own time with a cheap Washington Airport car rental.

How can I book with the cheapest rental car company at Washington Airport?

If you want to be absolutely sure of the best car rental deal in D.C., do a bit of research on CarRentals.com. You’ll be able to decide on the right vehicle to fit your budget in moments. And, if it’s a cheap price you’re after, try to:

  • - Browse and weigh up offers from different companies;
  • - Be aware of the fuel and mileage requirements;
  • - Book in advance of your trip.

What’s the lowest possible age for renting a car in Washington D.C.?

You’ll probably have to be at least 21 to book and drive one of the rental cars in the capital. If you happen to be under 25, there could also be an extra fee on top.

What car rental companies have desks at Washington Airport?

The primary airport of the nation’s capital has no shortage of car rental companies to choose from, from Alamo to Avis to Enterprise. It can be wise to have a read of online user reviews to make an informed choice.

Where are the car rental companies located at Washington Airport?

After making your way through arrivals at Washington Airport – properly known as Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) – you’ll need to get to the car rental company desks in Terminal Garage A. It takes around 10 minutes on foot, or you can just hop on the dedicated shuttle service.

Do I need car insurance for D.C. car rentals?

You do, but it could well be that your current car or credit card insurance does the job. Otherwise, you can buy the right kind of cover through CarRentals.com, or with the rental company itself.

Do I need anything when collecting my Washington D.C. rental car?

Just a couple of things – your driver’s license and whichever credit card used for the booking. If other drivers have been added for the same vehicle, they should also bring their licenses.

What fuel policy is recommended in Washington D.C.?

Different policies may be available, but full-to-full ticks all the right boxes. It’s cost-effective and convenient, with no hidden charges as long as you remember to refuel the tank before returning the rental car.

Will my D.C. car rental come with unlimited mileage?

The capital is studded with must-see attractions, from monuments to great presidents to the eye-opining institutions of the Smithsonian. You may also want to go further and see nearby areas like Arlington. This is why it’s good to be sure you have unlimited mileage, or make a point of opting for a vehicle with no caps on how far you travel.

Can I book a one-way car rental from Washington Airport?

Not intending to make a circular journey back to the airport? Ask your rental company about the logistics of dropping your rental car off at a different branch, and be aware of any extra fees attached to this.

What type of rental car should I book at Washington Airport?

This depends completely on your budget, the size of your group, and general circumstances. There’s certainly plenty of options to choose from in the capital, so here are a few ideas to think about:

Car Type Best for Category includes
Economy car A cost-effective trip to D.C. for solo visitors and couples Vauxhall Corsa, Toyota Yaris, or similar
Luxury An indulgent city break with all the comfort and perks you could want Chrysler 300, Buick Lacrosse, or similar
Minivan A group vacation to the capital, with plenty of space for everyone Toyota Sienna, Dodge Grand Caravan, or similar

Ready for the rich history and heritage of Washington D.C.? Bag a great deal on your own set of wheels through CarRentals.com, and you can get on with the fun task of mapping out all the attractions you want to take in at your leisure.
