The car was fine one we got it, but the pick up process was terrible. No differentiating between customers with a reservation and those without one. A few customers were with an agent for 20-30 minutes. Even when they helped me who had a reservation, it took much longer than it needed as they tried to upsell me on a bunch of options. Won't be choosing budget again.

In line for over three hours. Made it up to sixth in line just to be told you were out of cars. You know the inventory and how many people are in line. You stranded me and at least twelve more people at 2:30 in the morning with few or no options

The woman at the front desk in the BWI location was super nice and helpful. I liked the car a lot. When I turned the car in at the Albany airport, I was told where to leave the car: twice by one person (at the desk in the parking lot) and once by another person (driving the cars that were dropped off). That was yesterday morning, and it’s been over half a day since then, and I still have not received an email notifying me that the car was checked in. I have a photo of the car in the space they told me. I’d like to know that it’s turned in and that there are no additional charges because of it being incorrectly shown as not turned in.

Top tips for renting a car at Baltimore/Washington Airport

  • Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) is one of three international airports serving the region. It’s 30 miles from Washington DC and 9 miles from Baltimore. Car hire at Baltimore/Washington Airport is very popular. It’s a very easy airport to connect with by car and very close to major highways taking you to various nearby cities and onward to other US destinations.
  • There are a number of petrol stations near the rental facility but not immediately on its campus. If you are approaching from the Paul T Pitcher Memorial Highway via New Ridge Road you will pass two stations just after you exit the highway. If you are coming off Metropolitan Boulevard you’ll find a petrol station east of the main entrance to the airport on Aviation Blvd. Refuel in one of these before you return your car.
  • Returning your car is very straightforward. On approach to the airport you will see signs for the car rental facility. Follow these and park in the car park there. Remove all your belongings and return to the car hire desks in the main building. Here you can exchange your keys and documents and, once the car is checked, you’ll be free to go. If you arrive out of normal hours there will be a drop-box for you to leave your keys.
  • Baltimore/Washington Airport car hire operates 24h a day, seven days a week. A small number have reduced hours and when staff aren’t available a drop-box or self-service facility is in operation. Staff are available to answer queries and help with any onward travel enquiries.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars at Baltimore/Washington Airport for ₪144 or less
  • Book your rental car at Baltimore/Washington Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
