KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Arlington

  • If you want to experience the beauty that the city has to offer at your own pace, having a car rental in Arlington will provide you with the ultimate freedom. Transport is at the core of your travels and renting a car means you’ll have privacy, comfort, enough room for everyone, and freedom to let loose and have more fun. Renting a car is convenient as you can seamlessly navigate throughout the city. You’ll also find it easier to access nearby locations, such as Georgetown, which is approximately 15min away, or go as far as the Prince William Forest Park, which is 35 miles away, in about 45min.
  • Once you arrive at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), you’ll find a rental car facility on the first floor of Terminal Garage A. You can opt to ride the Rental Car Shuttle that will take you directly to the rental car shop or walk there and follow the signs leading to Terminal Parking Garage A. This could take from about 10 to 15min depending on which of the three terminals you use. Here, you’ll find rental cars from various companies, including Alamo, Hertz, and Budget.
  • One crucial thing you should know about Virginia is that pedestrians have the right of way. Drivers must fully stop, and not just yield, when passengers are crossing on marked and unmarked crosswalks. Pedestrians also have the right of way at intersections, so be vigilant and aware, or risk a hefty fine. There’s also a hand-held law that prohibits any use of cell phones while driving. Additionally, Arlington is a bike-friendly community, so avoid parking in bike lanes, even partially.
  • There’s rarely traffic congestion in most areas of the county, but roads leading to the Francis Scott Key Memorial Bridge and the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge are an exception. Rush hour times are especially chaotic from 6am to 9am and 4pm to 8pm. If you visit Arlington county during the winter months, you should be wary of slick and slippery roads. The snow can get heavy during storms, and you may run into the county’s snowplow teams on the roads.
  • Book your rental car in Arlington at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Arlington are around 13% cheaper than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travellers who rented a car in Arlington 
Verified travelerApr 2024
Be aware of the hours the rental car agency is open and make sure you try to book a flight within those hours. If arriving outside those hours and you want to be comfy make sure to book a place to stay cause taxis still run at that time of night.
Verified travelerDec 2023
Metro is very accessible to the pickup spot at DCA
Verified travelerFeb 2024
The person I interfaced with in office was not very knowledgeable about the vehicles. The person who actually gave the vehicle in the garage was excellent
Verified travelerDec 2023
For people from out of town, the service roads caught me off guard.
RobertNov 2023
Just be aware you need to stop at the Enterprise counter first before going to the pickup point in the garage. They are very close to each other, so not a big deal if you forget, just a quick elevator ride up to the counter.
Verified travelerSep 2023
Know that the payment card must be in the same name as the renter, even after one returns tue car.
SSep 2023
Call ahead or arrive very early to ensure inventory is available.
BrentJun 2023
Choose Alamo as they have the shortest lines and competitive prices. DC traffic sucks but if you’re going to the surrounding areas, it’s not as bad.
JohnAug 2023
Sixt car rental is the best
Verified travelerJun 2023
Give yourself time for your car drop off, a shuttle to bag drop off, to get through security, and to get to your terminal/gate. Plus AM traffic through DC
Verified travelerAug 2023
Stick with Alamo or enterprise or Hertz

I didn't get to rent the car because after calling Alamo multiple times to confirm policies, I spent 30$ taking an Uber to the airport only to be told I had been given wrong information and they would not rent me the car. It nearly cost me a night of my vacation and I ultimately had to borrow a car at great inconvenience to a family member. Will never ever use Alamo again.

We arrived at a very busy time but every member of the staff was friendly, kind, and helpful. The vehicle reserved for us was a little too small because our sons are 6’7 and 6’5 but the attendant didn’t even blink an eye. She said give me a sec and she found us a Ford Expedition which was perfect leg room for our giants ;). We weren’t the only ones who had special requests but through it all were so impressed with how the staff remained calm and were quick to come up with solutions. We would definitely rent from this location again!

When I went to drop the car there was no clear instructions to drop the key into the drop box and park the car and go. It said go into the airport and talk to the budget counter personnel. It was 6 AM, the airport counter was closed. Luckily when I came back there was another customer dropping the car, she assured me and told me to drop the key in the drop box. I waited till she dropped her key and dropped mine and left. All these delayed my going in and missed the flight and waited for 12 hours to catch the next plane. These all could be avoided if they had clear instructions to drop the key in the drop box and park and go instead of directing to go inside to the budget counter in the airport. Very disappointed

The lady at the counter when I went to pick up the car was super nice. What I didn’t like: my flight got in after 11pm when Avis closed, but I knew that would be a problem ahead of time so I had called and spoken with someone and they assured me that they would wait for me. However I got off my plane and no shuttles were running for Avis and I wasn’t able to get my car that night. I had to wait till almost 7am before one of the shuttles would allow me to get in and for then to take me to Avis.

Pros:

Absolutely nothing - The entire experience was a nightmare.

Cons:

The car they initially rented to me was broken and required software updates. There were no tenants around to help. I received my second car over an hour later and was unhappy with it due to the car being uncomfortable and full of blind spots (it was different than what I rented as well -- and definitely not any sort of an upgrade or similar to what I rented). The second car they gave me had a bald tire and I experienced a blow out less than 300 feet from the garage door in the driveway leading to/from the rental location. And then they charged me for the blow out.

I paid the DAILY rate, picked up the car at noon, and indicated initially I would return at 9PM. When I inquired about returning the car the next morning instead (4th of July in DC, all the access points to highways were closed to it was extremely difficult to get to the airport), they told me I had to pay a $65 extension fee even though I had paid the equivalent of 24 hours.

I ended up getting a small SUV. Very disappointing!

Everything is an up charge. The person at the counter tried to sell us an $89/day insurance policy. I eventually bought a $30/day insurance policy out of fear. Then he wanted to sell us $22/day toll package. We never paid any tolls. Then he wanted to sell us on a $120 gas fee so we wouldn’t have to fill up our tank. They do a hard sell on the extras. It really felt that they make a commission on the extras they can sell.

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was pretty clean and drove decently. There were no major dents or scratches.

Cons:

Pick up was done with an agent that was a bit less than friendly. The car was in desperate need of an oil change and tune-up. Drop off was even worse! The man that did The Returned was abrupt and barely willing to help me in any way with my luggage or anything else. The woman who was driving the shuttle for me back to the airport insisted that I get out in spite of the cold weather and walk so that she didn't have to be inconvenienced by dropping me off at the normal stop. It was cold, I was hauling three pieces of luggage and it only made my experience that much worse! One of the three gentlemen who were on the shuttle who have been picked up at the stop (and had waited far longer than they had expected) called this service "not so ez" car rental. I now understand why he called it that. I won't rent with this service again.

Cons:

Our airplane was slightly delayed but still arrived before midnight which is when E-Z rent-A-car closes. But for whatever reason they decided to close at 11PM, before we even landed, which left us stranded and looking for an available car rental at the airport when all other agencies were closing soon. Fortunately we did find one but ended up spending nearly 7 times as much for the car. I have half a mind to file a complaint with the BBB and get EZ to pay for this since it's their fault we were left in that situation. I will NEVER rent a car with them again.

Pros:

Nothing, EZ rental seems like a scam did not pick up rental

Cons:

They do not properly inform customers and try to add hidden charges.

Pros:

Got a luxury coupe so that was a very pleasant surprise. Fast ride and felt just right for our vacation.

Cons:

When I was first choosing a ride, I was told the car had apple CarPlay, but it in fact did not have that so putting on my navigation was a bit difficult at first but we made it work. I got the 2018 q60 3.0t awd.

We picked up at Airport but we didn't fly in and it was a little tricky getting to the office when we were driving in. Once inside we went to the National Desk but there was no one there, the issue was that there was a window open and it had a coat on the chair so it looked like someone had just stepped away. We waited, knocked and called out but no one came. Finally a worker passing by said we needed to go to the Alamo window and that did work fine But there should have been some sign at the National desk telling us to do that. The rest of our experiences were very good.

5.6 Fair

Nov 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

The car itself was nice.

Cons:

6 hours before the pick up time, I received a call telling me that the car likely would not be available. We had reserved a mini van so we could drive our son from D.C. to college in Chicago. I expressed extreme concern because it was now too late to change our plans and rent from another company. The agent indicated that he would call back shortly with an update, while he tried to locate a minivan. He did not call back. We contacted him 6 hours later and he had not even tried to locate a minivan. He then agreed (again) to look for a minivan. He called back 2 hours later and indicated that he thought it was likely he could secure a large SUV, but that instead of it being available that evening as we had reserved and requested, it would be available in the morning. Then, when we showed up at the pick up spot the next morning (Key Bridge Marriott), the agent was not there. We called his number, only to find out that the agent and the SUV were at the Crystal City Marriott. We were already delayed overnight in leaving on our trip, but we then had to drive to Crystal City to pick up the SUV. While the SUV was excellent, the experience was horrible. I have rented from Hertz for 30 years, and this was the absolute worst experience I have ever had.

Aug 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

I'm still fuming. At 5 pm the night before my early morning departure on a one way 600-mile road trip, Hertz in Arlington called me to say that they did not have an SUV for me to rent. No car at all, no help finding a replacement and barely an apology. Terrible, terrible service. I am still shocked.

Cons:

Hertz could have made it right. The last-minute rental I was lucky to find from Budget cost almost triple the price, but I had no options. Hertz customer service offered a weak apology and a $50 voucher for my next rental. Very, very poor effort. I expected better from Hertz. Never again!

Pros:

Absolutely nothing. Had a booking reserved and had to call and talk for 15 minutes on the phone with the employee who told me there was nothing he could do.

Cons:

The employee at the pickup location literally told me on the phone that I should have called ahead to make sure he had a car. He said he didnt have any cars and couldnt do anything. I told him this was unacceptable and was pointed to a helpline, who just left me stranded in DC waiting on a call.

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing, everything was terrible, they did not have my mini van. It was the worst experience I've ever had renting a vehicle as I was depending on the minivan to move, I had the loading dock at my apt. scheduled and no vehicle. Hertz never notified me that my vehicle was not there.

Cons:

Everything, could have called me, could have told me a different location to get the minivan. I probably will never rent with Hertz again.

Cons:

No one was at the counter when I arrived and I had to wait for 45 minutes. I was in such a rush at that point that I only checked the outside of the car, but when I got home realized that the interior looked as though it hadn’t been cleaned for months.
