With incredible proximity to Washington, D.C., Vienna is undeniably well worth a visit. Consider getting car rentals in Vienna to move around the city and adventure hidden gems nearby seamlessly.

The nearest ones are Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), about 13 miles; Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), 19 miles; and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), 48 miles from the city center.

Several locals access the city with private vehicles, leading to bumper-to-bumper traffic on most streets. Usually, the city experiences rush hours from 6:00 am to 10:00 am and 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Do not drive your car rentals in Vienna unless necessary.

Pros:

The drop off was not easy at all. Was able to pick a time slot to drop off the car at 6pm not knowing the location actually closed at 4pm. Staff did not tell us the procedures for the after hours drop off. My husband went all the way there, then had to come back and we had to call the Enterprise help line to have them tell us how to drop off the car after hours.

Cons:

Communication with staff about drop off procedures especially after hours.

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.

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.

The rep charged my credit card with multiple wrong charges which my bank instantly alerted me too while I was at the counter. I confronted the rep who mumbled something about “oh yeah I fix I fix” but never explained why he did that. So he charged over $1,600 on my credit card for a rental that was reserved for $738. This put my card over the limit because he said the mistaken charges don’t come off right away. So we were unable at that point to complete the rental and we’re stranded at the checkout! Btw.this happened last time at the Budget counter also. What kind of scam are the running??

I arrived at 2:15PM and was told they close at 2:00pm on a Saturday. I was denied my rental until I raised a fuss. There is/was no mention on the reservation that the store closed at 2:00. Only one staff member on hand for multiple customers. Will not use them again.

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.

Pros:

The staff was friendly and helpful, made it easy to pick up and drop off. Also liked the fact that I didn't have to go to the airport to get a rental, as well as its proximity to the Metro.

Cons:

Gas tank was only 3/8 full, so had to make a stop for gas. Makes it easier starting with a full tank as well as when it is dropped off. Easier to fill it than figure out how much to add to get the 3/8.

I upgraded to a luxury SUV and Gabriel identified a car in his inventory that offered exactly the options I needed. My family was anxious to get on the road and Gabriel expertly got us on our way in a few minutes. Gabriel was wonderful
