KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Ocean City

  • Booking a car at one of the Ocean City car rentals is one of the best decisions you can make if you want to tour the city extensively. This is because a rental car allows you to visit various attractions within and outside the city whenever you want without having to worry about missing the bus. Within the city, you can visit the Ocean City Boardwalk, a well-known boardwalk with shops and fair rides, or the Ocean City Life-Saving Museum, where you can learn more about sea rescuers through exhibitions. When the weather permits, you can also visit several beaches along the Mid-Atlantic coast, including Chesapeake Beach.
  • Getting a rental car at Salisbury Regional Airport, Ocean city's primary airport, is easy as this airport is served by car rental agencies like Hertz, Avis, National, and Enterprise. Although none of the mentioned car rental companies have a car rental facility within the airport, they all offer free shuttle services to their off-airport car rental locations. It's worth noting that car rental companies serving this airport provide perks like toll passes and free cancellation policies in case your plans change.
  • Driving your car rental in Ocean city is manageable, even if it is your first time visiting the city. However, you should always keep an eye out for traffic lights, as many of them are equipped with cameras to catch speeding or reckless drivers. Several roads in Maryland have tolls, and you will undoubtedly encounter a few if you plan on driving your rental car around Ocean City frequently. These tolls can be paid for in cash or electronically with a toll pass. Fortunately, most car rentals in Ocean City provide their customers with toll passes.
  • You should not worry about traffic jams when driving your rental car in Ocean City. However, roads can become extremely congested during rush hour, which occurs from 7 am to 9 am and from 5 pm to 7 pm when people are rushing home. So, during your vacation, you should plan to travel in areas and at times when roads are less congested. Congestion on the roads may also be high during summer when most people flock to the city to enjoy its sandy beaches.
  • Book your car hire in Ocean City at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate car hire in Ocean City are around -16% cheaper than other car types, on average

Friendly staff. Smooth, easy, fast paperwork process at the counter at pickup and dropoff. Only problems I had were finding the car, and knowing what to do when I returned. Very small diy airport, with minimal signage. I needed more and clearer info as a first timer there.
