KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Towson

  • Booking Towson car rentals offer your various benefits, key among them being enhanced flexibility and convenience when traversing the city. Although MTA buses are popular among travelers because of their cost-effectiveness, their main limitation is in having fixed departure schedules and routes to follow. Car rentals in Towson come with the benefit of allowing visitors to decide on their own departure times and choose the routes that are more convenient to them. The Johnny Unitas Stadium is one of the places you can visit with your rented car and enjoy a variety of sporting activities.
  • Enjoy self-drive from Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) to Towson city center by renting a car at the airport. Major car rentals in Towson, including Hertz, Avis, Enterprise, and Budget, all have their desks in the car rental facility located at 7432 New Ridge Rd. You will connect from the airport to the car rental facility using courtesy shuttles. Each of the Towson car rentals avails shuttles to ferry its customers from the airport to its respective car rental location.
  • When driving your rented car in Towson, you should remember a few important things to ensure your safety as well as the safety of other road users. It is almost optional for drivers to change lanes or make turns without indicating. You should always be watchful of the cars ahead of you and drive at lower speeds to keep your car under control. When driving your car within the central business district, remember that pedestrians commonly jump into the roads without caring about oncoming vehicles.
  • You will experience considerable difficulties when driving a car from one of the car rentals in Towson during Towsontown Spring Festival. When the city hosts this annual event toward the end of April or early May, the number of people coming to the city increases significantly. This reflects in an increased number of vehicles on most of the city’s roads. You experience unusually heavy traffic on many roads, which causes unnecessary delays for most drivers.
  • Book your rental car in Towson at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Towson are around 157% more expensive than other car types, on average

  • Where is the best place to park in Towson?

    On-Street parking is an affordable and convenient parking option when you are with your rented car in the city. You can park your rented car for a maximum of three hours on any of the streets and pay about $2 per hour. These charges are applicable from 8 am to 6 pm, Monday to Saturday. On Sunday, a public holiday, and between 6 pm and 8 am, you can park your car free of charge. If you are looking for a suitable place for short-term overnight parking, consider the pay stations located at the Stadium Lots near Johnny Unitas Stadium and SECU Arena. You can purchase an overnight parking permit from 3 pm, which remains valid for 24 hours.

Be sure to check the exact address of location, especially is a large city. I thought I made my online vehicle rental reservation at my local airpor location. I missed the fine print. It was 26 miles miles from the airport. Luckily my friend dropping me off did not mind rerouting me to the correct location.
