KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Westminster

  • Choosing car rentals in Westminster allows you to explore popular attractions and landmarks in the city, such as the Carroll County Farm Museum, McDaniel College, Westminster City Park, and the Carroll Arts Center. Opting for Westminster car rentals becomes especially beneficial when you want to venture slightly outside the city to discover scenic routes around Westminster. The convenience of a Westminster car rental empowers you to customize your itinerary, ensuring you make the most of your visit and have an enriching experience.
  • Car rental offices at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) and Harrisburg International Airport (MDT) can be found easily by following the displayed signs. At BWI Airport, the car rental offices are usually located off-site from the main terminal, but the airport provides a shuttle service to and from the rental car facility and the terminal. At Harrisburg International Airport, car rental offices are located at the lower level of the terminal, near the baggage claim area. There are clear signs at the airport pointing you in the right direction.
  • Driving in Westminster, Maryland, offers a pleasant experience with a generally calm atmosphere that sets the tone for a relaxed journey. When behind the wheel, it's important to note that pedestrians enjoy the right of way at crosswalks, so exercising patience and yielding is a must. Remaining vigilant is key, especially when encountering cyclists sharing the road, and being prepared for the possibility of unexpected jaywalking incidents is particularly relevant near busy areas like Carroll Hospital Center. Soak in the serene surroundings, but stay attentive for a smooth and safe drive.
  • When using Westminster car rentals, be aware of rush hours, typically from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Stay mindful that traffic congestion can peak on Route 140 (Baltimore Boulevard), Route 97 (Washington Road), and Route 27 (Manchester Road) during this time. Additionally, winter months (December–February) can pose challenges, with potential snow and ice making roads slippery and reducing traction. To navigate safely during winter in Westminster, it's crucial to adjust your driving habits by slowing down, increasing following distances, and being prepared for changing road conditions.
  • Book your car hire in Westminster at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Westminster are around 17% more expensive than other car types, on average

  • Where are the best places to park a car rental in Westminster?

    You’ll find ample parking spaces in Westminster to park your car rental. There are free parking spaces around popular attractions. However, downtown Westminster provides metered parking options on streets such as Main Street and Liberty Street that charge an hourly rate. This ensures hassle-free exploration of attractions like the Westminster Community Pond and City Park. Leveraging these parking options enhances your experience as you immerse yourself in the city's charm and attractions.

Gary, the manager handled my pickup. Great experience and easy as could possibly be. I will probably rent from them in the future. Also, return was smooth, I wish I gotten the person's name. It was easy, no surprises, no extra changes, good stuff.

Pros:

The associate was professional and courteous. He went over the van thoroughly.

Cons:

The van was clean and available upon arrival. The associate that checked car in was quick, and professional. Although there was a customer waiting to be checked in, he answered questions I had regarding future rentals and never appeared rushed.

We never got the rental. We were called 15 minutes before the original pick up time and told that the rental would be delayed an hour. When we arrived at the new pick up time, still no rental. We were told that the rental was in DC and would take another hour. We were very disappointed.
