KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Laurel

  • Getting a car from one of the car rentals in Laurel is one of the best decisions you can make when visiting the city, whether for pleasure or business. There is so much to see and do in and around Laurel, and having a car allows you to visit whatever attractions you want at your own pace. You can drive a short distance within the city to the famed Laurel Historical Society, a museum with regional exhibits and programs. The vehicle will make it simple to travel 20 miles to Washington, D.C., to see the White House and presidential monuments.
  • Fortunately for would-be rental car drivers, the main airport serving Laurel, Baltimore/Washington International Airport, is served by several major car rental agencies. The car rental facility, however, is located offsite, a few miles from the airport. Once at the airport, proceed to the baggage claim area on the lower level of the main terminal building. Once you exit through the baggage claim area B doors, complimentary shuttle buses run every 10 minutes to the offsite car rental facility. The facility offers a diverse range of car rental options, ranging from economy to luxury vehicles.
  • It is important to note that when driving around Laurel, you will undoubtedly encounter several toll roads. These tolls can be paid either in cash or electronically. Most Laurel car rentals have toll passes available upon request; therefore, request one if you do not wish to stop at each toll to make a cash payment. When driving around the city, be aware of traffic lights as they are equipped with cameras to catch reckless or overspeeding drivers.
  • Although driving your rental car in Laurel is not difficult, major roads leading into and out of the city can become extremely congested during rush hour. The city's proximity to Washington, DC, is a major contributor to these massive traffic jams. As a result, during your visit, you should choose to travel in areas and at times when roads are less congested. Laurel's rush hour is from 7 am to 9 am when people leave for work and from 5 pm to 7 pm when people return home. You should particularly avoid Interstate 695, also known as the Beltway.
  • Book your car hire in Laurel at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate car hire in Laurel are around 27% cheaper than other car types, on average

However, if you are visiting for business and will be spending most of your time downtown, parallel street parking will be easier to find if you drive a small, compact car. If you're going on a family vacation, consider renting a minivan or a station wagon, which has more space to accommodate more people and luggage. When visiting during the winter, a heavier vehicle, such as a powerful SUV, may be preferred because the snow makes the roads icy and slippery.

    The speed limits on different roads in Laurel vary. You are not permitted to exceed a speed limit of 25 mph when driving in a school zone or a residential area. Interstate highways, such as the Beltway, have a speed limit of 65 mph. Keep an eye out for posted speed limits on the road and slow down when necessary to avoid getting in trouble with the strict traffic cops. If you come during the winter, be prepared to slow down to adjust to snowy or icy roads.

  • Where are the best places to park in Laurel?

    If you want to park your rental car in Laurel, your two main options are street parking and garage parking. Street parking is available for a fee of up to four hours.

KAYAK

Pros:

The pick-up and drop-off were easy. The pick-up took a little time because they washed the car and then took a video of the car in order to document any existing damage. I dropped it off on a Saturday morning and it didn't take long.

Cons:

They did try to sell me extra insurance for the car. I told them that I had purchased insurance with Kayak. The guy at the counter told me that they didn't accept the insurance that I purchased with Kayak. However, after he realized that I had put the Kayak insurance on a credit card, he accepted the Kayak insurance.

Aug 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing. My reservation never showed up in their system and I had to do it all over again. The insurance which I purchased when I booked the car was not accepted and I had to provide a new insurance policy to cover for the rental. I spent more than an hour to pick up the car. I also had to wait for the car to be cleaned before I could leave.

Cons:

Paperwork was printed at 12:37pm but the associate attending to me left the counter to go wash and clean the car. I did not leave their premises till 1pm. When I returned the car at 12:55pm,the same associate saw me drive into the parking spot and left what he was doing outside to go lock up the main door since they closed at 1pm. I knocked on the door for about 5 minutes and no one came to the door. I dropped the key in the drop box and as I waited for my ride to leave, he came out of the building and did not even acknowledge my presence. Just this evening I see that my credit card was charged for reasons unknown to me. Poor customer service and lack of professionalism. I will never rent from them again!

Pros:

The customer service at next car laurel was fabulous. The staff was friendly and helpful, helping me to carry my car seat to the rental. They took time and vacuumed and throughly clean the inside and outside of the van before they handed it over to me. The car was a 2015 Toyota Sienna and it drove really well. Can't beat the $60 per day for a van.

Pick up and drop off was easy. Great customer service and very helpful staff. Only issue was my “upgrade” was dirty inside and car smelled heavily of cigarettes. But aside from that I’d say price was definitely worth it. Would rent again.

Pros:

Pickup and dropoff was pretty easy. The staff person that was there for both instances was very friendly and helpful.

Cons:

It would have been helpful to be have an opportunity to choose our vehicle. The minivan we were given had pet hair in the back. We have small children, so this was not ideal. We made due by putting down plastic in the back, but this was an avoidable modification if (a) the vehicles were cleaned/inspected better, (b) there was a backup vehicle available, or (c) we could have chosen our vehicle beforehand - to which we would have asked questions about the cleanliness of the vehicle.

Pros:

NOTHING

Cons:

- system was down when I picked up the car in and I was asked to write in my information on a piece of paper. It was like going back to 1975! - rude staff kept insisting for me to write down my info on a piece of paper when I already made the reservation on line. - I was given a car with noisy tires. - I was charged a large fee for returning the car to another city even though I returned it to the same place I picked it up from - charged a full day rental for bringing the car 5 hours late - how does one end up paying $219 for renting an economy car 29hrs, with the same drop off and pick up? Ask AVIS, they will be more than happy to rip you off I expected more from AVIS. Instead I got the same shady service or rather lack of service one gets from FOX or EZ. I called repeatedly AVIS customer service to try and adjust the charge for the fact that I returned the car to the same location. Once they got your $ they will hold on to it for dear life. They won't let go no matter what you say or do. Shame on AVIS!

Pickup was quick and easy. But the cleanliness of vehicles needs to improve. The outside of the vehicle was dirty. The inside of the vehicle was not that clean. I asked the Hertz representative if the inside of the vehicle had been cleaned and she said all of the vehicles are cleaned before they are given to customers. I found crusted particles on the interior door panels, and some decorations that someone else left behind.

Cons:

They could check the condition of the vehicle before they rent it. My vehicle had 2 bald tires on the front and I was driving to Florida had to delay my trip until the next day because had to wait for 2 new tires to be installed. Started my trip driving in a snow storm tried to get out the day before. Windshield washer fluid was empty doesn't work so well driving in a snow storm.

Car was good value for price. Booked a Ford fiesta which was perfect size for me.

Cons:

However, the whole agency is a bit slow and there are a lot of mechanics sitting around. The office where customers are served is very inconvenient as we need to wait outside and get called inside one by one. Pretty inefficient
