KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Annapolis

  • If you need to make frequent trips to places outside of central Sunrise, you may want to look into car rentals in Annapolis. One kind of public transportation that is unavailable on weekends and holidays is the Annapolis bus system. If you need to take a certain bus route during off-peak hours, for example, owning a personal automobile is preferable to relying on public transportation since you will have more flexibility. In comparison to public transit options like the bus or train, hiring a transportation service offers a number of benefits.
  • Child seat regulations in Annapolis are dependent on the child's age and size. Regardless of weight, children under the age of 8 must ride in a suitable child safety seat or booster seat. For maximum safety, it is advised that kids ride in booster seats until they are 4ft 9in or taller. Before driving a cheap car rental in Annapolis, it is important to check state laws and recommendations for kid safety seats because particular regulations may change based on the weight and height of the child as well as the type of vehicle you're driving.
  • The Baltimore–Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport is where you may pick up a car rental in Annapolis. It is convenient to Annapolis, and you can choose from a wide range of rental cars from companies including Alamo, Avis, Budget, and Hertz. This airport is a great choice for vacationers since it is adjacent to many car rental facilities. All of these places ask for identification with an expiring driver's license as evidence of age.
  • Annapolis, Maryland has several important roads that are crucial for getting around the area. Visitors are advised to familiarize themselves with the road and traffic patterns in the area to ensure safe and efficient travel in Annapolis car rentals. One of the major roads is Medical Parkway, which connects the Anne Arundel Medical Center to other parts of the city. Another important road is Route 50, which is a major east-west highway that runs through the city and connects it to other towns in the state. To easily navigate these roads, it's recommended to plan your route ahead and browse these roads a short time beforehand
  • Watch out for pedestrians in Annapolis while operating car rentals in Annapolis; jaywalking is common and people may cross the street without checking for traffic. There are certain periods of the day in Annapolis when there is an increased likelihood of significant delays in the flow of traffic on a number of the city's routes. Downtown is where you will find the most severe levels of congestion. The majority of people going somewhere by car opt to start their journey either very early in the morning or very late in the afternoon, namely between the hours of seven and nine in the morning and between four and six in the evening.
  • Worry not if you choose to book electric cheap car rentals in Annapolis. You can recharge your car at one of the many electric car charging stations available. The Westfield Annapolis Mall has several charging stations for electric vehicles scattered throughout the parking lot, and the City Dock charging station is located downtown next to the Annapolis Harbormaster's office. The Annapolis Town Centre has four charging stations for electric vehicles located on the first level of the parking garage. More charging stations can be located across the city in parking garages, hotels, and retail establishments.
  • Using Annapolis car rentals is a breeze since the city's roads are in good condition, and residents are friendly. Due to the high population density, it is imperative that drivers on the city's numerous highways exercise extreme caution. Every time a person gets behind the wheel, they should be reminded of how critical it is to behave responsibly and obey the laws of the road. Never weave in and out of traffic, always use your turn and lane signals, preserve a safe space of at least three meters between you and the automobile in front of you, and always use turn and lane signals.
  • Book your car hire in Annapolis at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

I like the fact that Enterprise called me half way there and not when I was already there to cancel my reservation.

Cons:

I needed a car and the only one that showed that had one was an Enterprise 30 min away. So I got a taxi to take me to that city. Half way there I received a phone call from Enterprise telling me that they did jot have cars and were sorry. i had to ask the taxi driver to stop and change plans.

They gave me a free tank of gas, which was not a free tank of gas at all. They expected me to drive around and return on E. They didn’t explain how to use or not use the expass. The car was not clean. Food, clothes and shoes were left in the car.

The pick up and people in Annapolis were fantastic and beyond helpful. That is the only reason I would ever use hertz or suggest using hertz to anyone else.

There is nothing I can say I didn't like about Annapolis besides their heat wasn't working. Maybe look into upgrading that building for your employees.

Pros:

Driving a hybrid was fun. It had pick up which I thought that it would lack. I enjoyed driving this little Ford.

Cons:

When they first gave me a car, it had no bluetooth compatibility. Since the states that I was traveling through require hands-free, it didn't make any sense. They did switch out the car (after I complained) for an older model that had bluetooth. Though the car had 21,000 miles it was clean and drove well.
