KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in McLean

  • Travelers should consider car rentals in McLean since they save them from worries, giving them freedom and the flexibility to go wherever they want. With a rental car, you can explore the city's numerous attractions including George Washington Memorial Parkway, a riverside route featuring lush scenery and interesting monuments. It also lets you discover local sites like the stunning Great Falls Park, Lewinsville Park, and Old Town Trolley Tours which capture the area's rich history and exciting past. Capital Crescent Trail is a great way to experience the area's vibrant culture and history for those passionate about road trips. The trail is an 8-mile stretch of country road that features natural beauty, historical sites, old buildings, cultural landmarks, and lush scenery.
  • Car rentals in Mclean are accessible at the airports that serve the city. Travelers landing through Reagan Washington (DCA) Airport should check the car rental counters behind the terminal building. At Washington Dulles (IAD) Airport, car rental counters are in the Arrivals Levels 1 and 2. The other onsite rental car center airport is Baltimore (BWI) Airport. The car rental center is accessible at the Arrivals Level C, doors 5 and 6. McLean car rentals available at the airports are Hertz, Enterprise, Sixt, Turo, Dollar, Alamo, and Avis.
  • Driving in McLean is made easier by following some tips. While driving, watch out for construction sites because they may require temporary lane closures. Additionally, heed the speed limit when driving near intersections, streets, and highways. Be alert for traffic signs and keep an eye on the road ahead of you because of a tendency for pedestrians and cyclists to cross anytime. When approaching intersections, yield to oncoming traffic and stop to allow pedestrians to cross. It has the highest pedestrian fatalities due to McLean's sidewalk system which is rather large and inadequately maintained; hence if a pedestrian is strolling along the street, be ready to yield to them.
  • McLean faces heavy traffic due to the dense population, especially during peak hours. The city also grapples with traffic congestion since many residents of McLean are highly dependent on their automobiles. Traffic in the city is made worse by commuters from Fairfax and tourists visiting the area. Drivers must exercise patience when dealing with faulty stoplights and traffic jams. McLean has several roads that make driving troubling, including Winding Bridge Road, a two-way limited access road with narrow lanes, and Lucas Valley Road, which features two lanes and no shoulders along with no center divider.
  • Book your car hire in McLean at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

The car was clean. I HATE having to pay the $300 deposit. It is discrimination against people who don't have an "extra" $300 credit.

Pros:

Staff was friendly and despite my booking the wrong day, let me rent the same truck for the same price.

Cons:

This is just all Enterprise Car Rental's in general, but they don't require the person returning the car to fill the gas tank to the top and just bring it back the way it was. I always find that harder to do.

Pros:

After we saw the car that we were getting, we asked if they had any larger cars available. They found something we liked, and allowed us to upgrade. In addition, they advised us not to use our credit card insurance, but either use our own car insurance or buy theirs. Thankfully, we did not need it, but I appreciated the advice.

Jun 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff was nice enough.

Cons:

literally everything could have been better. The car we reserved wasn't there, so they told us they had to put us in a compact. We had a seven hour drive. At first, we got in the car since that was all they said they had. It was gross. The interior was grungy and the car had clearly been smoked in. Additionally, there were six or seven other vehicles sitting there that we could have chosen. We went back inside and asked why they weren't offered, and all they said was they'd give us six dollars off the rental. I told them to refund the trip and that we would go somewhere else. We ended up going to Avis a couple blocks away. Yes, it was more expensive, but I would rather pay more for what I want than less for the polar opposite of what I want or need.

Pros:

The staff called two hours before our scheduled vehicle pick up time to tell us they had no vehicle for us and no options. I’m not sure how we could have gotten a reservation confirmation, but no car. It put my wife and me in a terrible bind, and not a pleasant experience.

Cons:

If they actually had a car for us, or had declined our reservation due to no available vehicle from the start.

I really appreciate the manager at the desk ( I mean the black skin manager) he was really nice and professional. I’d recommend Budget to my friends/ family. However, It would be super helpful if you add additional sign arrow panels by the hotel or at the intersection.

Pros:

The car was comfortable, clean, and fuel efficient. They gave me a ride to the Metro, but it's not close to the Metro.

Cons:

I was charged another day for late return. I thought I had until noon, but I picked up at 10:48AM. The location was in the basement of the Marriott with only one man working and only a couple of cars. When I arrived to return, the office was closed while the one man working there was buying his lunch.

Got a brand new minivan. Service was kind and helpful.

Cons:

The ezpass box was still open from the previous user so I was charged for tolls. I kept it open after the first one when I went through the full service line and it was automatically charged. Costs really climb with taxes or any added coverage.

Pros:

I liked the ease of Kayak finding me a rental in my price range. Then, the experience with Budget was great. The day before my reservation, I had to request that my dates be change, and the very nice person at Budget (the one in the local office) was very accomodating, even though her computer showed they were low on cars. Pick up and drop off were both easy, and the rental office (While small - this was at a local Sheraton hotel), was close to my home.
