Nothing.

Cons:

They called me 30 minutes before pick up to tell me they didn't have a car for me and made no effort to fix the situation. They were very unapologetic and didn't even care to offer any useful help.

Cons:

Staff at drop-off were far more interested in continuing with what appeared to be a personal conversation with a friend/customer rather than helping those standing next in line.

Cons:

They don't pick you up even if close proximity as only one person. They probably many customers to across the street at enterprise. The insurance purchased online is dreamed upon as it's in expensive but has worked some not for others. so cancelled Alliance insurance and purchase one with budget. Would have been easiest to go with enterprise...less frustration and head. I agree with someone else I was quickly ushered out but if given more to understand the important features of the car such as headlights and gas tank would be helpful.

Manager in Bethesda assisted me. She was very helpfu6l and efficient. I needed a vehicle to drive up to new york and drop off. Although there was a surcharge for doing that it was very useful to be able to. I will definitely use Enterprise again.

Cons:

There was no Ez pass in the car.

Pros:

Nice to be able to pick up and drop off somewhere else other than the airport.

Cons:

Suggestion: for the pick up and drop off locations identify the name of the business attached to the address. For example, my pick up location was in the lobby of a hotel. Instead of just providing the street address, add that it is located in the lobby of x hotel.

Top tips for hiring a car in Bethesda

  • Car rentals in Bethesda promote convenient trips in and outside the city, allowing you to reach attractions in different areas. You can unwind through a show at Glen Echo Park, a visual and performing arts venue about 3 miles from the town's center. Using a rental vehicle from Bethesda car rentals, you can drive approximately 8.7 miles to Arlington and pay homage to fallen heroes. The U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, Pentagon Memorial, and John F. Kennedy's gravesite are all within driving distance of one another.
  • Bethesda has several airports nearby, including the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, and the Washington Dulles International Airport. The airport closest to Bethesda is the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), situated approximately 9.4 miles away. Washington Dulles International (IAD) is about 18.9 miles from central Bethesda, while the Baltimore/Washington Airport (BWI) is around 27.1 miles away. BWI offers car rentals in Bethesda via NextCar, Thrifty, Budget, Dollar, Hertz, and Alamo. You can locate the rental facility on New Ridge Road and Stoney Run Road, accessible via the airport's free shuttle service. This bus operates every 10min, and you can find it on the lower-level terminal. IAD features several companies that present car rentals provisions, including Dollar, Sixt, Thrifty, and Budget. Each company has a free shuttle that transports you from the terminal to the pick-up area. You can reach this shuttle at Curb 2D or Curb 2C from the Baggage Claim Level by exiting down the ramp to Doors 2 and 4. DCA also has a rental car center on Terminal Garage A's first floor, consisting of options from Thrifty, Budget, Dollar, and Hertz. To get here, you can take a short walk by following the signs or utilize the Rental Car Shuttle at Door 4 on the Ticketing Level.
  • Multiple streets, such as Wisconsin Avenue and busy highways like Interstate 270, ensure you can conveniently reach your preferred destinations. Additionally, you can modify your rented vehicle by including a GPS to confidently maneuver the interconnected avenues, lanes, streets, drives, and freeways. Be aware of jaywalkers because pedestrians can cross mid-block as long as one of the adjacent intersections lacks traffic signals.
  • Bethesda has morning traffic from around 7:30am while the evening jam starts at about 5pm. Interstate 270 can experience heavy congestion during rush hours as it links to Interstate 95. It is a good idea to stay indoors at these times since the jam extends to other major avenues and streets around the town center. The snowy conditions in winter require you to drive extra carefully to maintain control along the slick pathways.
  • Book your car hire in Bethesda at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate car hires in Bethesda are around 27% cheaper than other car types, on average
