KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Waldorf

  • Car rental in Waldorf is the most popular way for tourists to get around the city and the surrounding regions. Public transportation is also an option, but in this area, you’re more likely to be spending more time waiting for buses than travelling between A and B. In your rental car, you can alleviate the waiting times and travel around with more freedom, especially when reaching places such as Washington D.C. which is only around 50min by car. There’s also Annapolis, MD, which is the capital of the state and takes 1 hour to drive to. Alexandria, VA is another nice day trip, and only 35 minutes away.
  • If you’re looking to organise car rental in Waldorf, arranging everything from Washington Reagan National Airport (DCA) is your best option, with an extensive range of vehicles from seven different major car rental companies. You can locate the car rental desks on first floor of Parking 1, from the terminal building you can grab a shuttle bus outside Terminals 1 & 2 (Curbside 2). If you have selected Budget or Avis as your provider, the offices are off site, and they both have dedicated shuttle buses at Curbside 3.
  • If you’re looking at Waldorf car hire, it’s worth noting that you need to have a valid Indian driving licence and an International Driving Permit (IDP) issued by the Indian authorities. The IDP is usually required for tourists from India to drive legally in the USA. In the USA, including Maryland, driving is on the right-hand side of the road. If you're travelling with kids, they need to be seated in a secure child seat, this is required by law. In Maryland, the legal blood alcohol content limit is 0.08%. It's best to avoid alcohol entirely if you plan to drive.
  • As you plan your drives in Waldorf, be mindful of the morning (7:00-9:00) and evening (16:00-19:00) rush hour traffic and try to avoid major roads during these times. Some roads you should try to avoid include Route 301, also known as Crain Highway, which can become backlogged with commuter traffic, much like Smallwood Drive and St. Patrick’s Drive, which are both important roads and experience congestion during rush hour. While on the school run, Berry Road and Acton Lane can get busy, as they both connect schools and residential areas.
  • Book your car hire in Waldorf at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Waldorf are around -65% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Staff was nice but the car smelled like a dirty toilet. The brakes on the car were very bad. It made sense when the representative asked me if I planned on doing a lot of driving.

Cons:

Tell me about the car in it’s state and not let me drive off in that condition. I had a minor with me.

Cons:

They called me the day of my rental and left me a message that they didnt have a car for me even though I had a reservation. Never made any effort to try and help me otherwise. I tried calling back numerous times and never got through. Ended up having to rent with a different rental agency who could accommodate me and at least acknowledge me.

KAYAK

Cons:

I have no complaints about the car or service, everything went fine. What I don't like is that I couldn't change my car reservation until I canceled the original. When I rebooked to shorten my rental days it actually cost a lot more than it would have if I had just kept the original reservation. All I tried to do was drop a few days off the total, pick up day was the same! I feel cheated.

Car could have been cleaner and could have been the car I reserved. I reserved a full size car and was given a compact suv. I reserved a full size for a reason...I needed the space.

Pros:

This car rental folks called me a week before my trip to confirm that I was still travelling. Then they called again two days before I travelled. And lastly the day of travelling. When I went to pick up the vehicle, the customer representative realized that the trunk was not completely clean. So she picked up the vacuum cleaner and vacuumed it herself. Personally I think that's what good customer service is all about.

Cons:

Nothing bad to talk about.
