The close proximity of Baltimore’s many attractions allow visitors the option of touring the city on foot instead of renting a car. However the quaint surrounding towns and the lure of outlet shopping may leave travelers desiring to a day or two driving around the county. Also if your time is limited, you may want to have a car to enable you to make the most of your short visit.

Many Car Rental Companies have local offices in Baltimore. Of special note is the new car rental facility at BWI Airport that allows for one-stop rental or shopping. A free 10-minute shuttle ride transports travelers from the airport terminal to the car rental facility. Uncommon at many airports, the spacious design ensures easy pick-up and drop-off of vehicles.

Whether you make Car Reservations ahead of time or wait until you arrive in the city or at the airport, make sure you shop around with a few companies to compare prices and options. Tell each agency what your needs are going to be for the car to ensure you get the optimum value for your money.

Baltimore Car Rental Agencies often run specials and many of these deals can be found by looking on the agencies’ websites or calling a representative. Sometimes you can even upgrade to a nicer or bigger car for the same cost as the vehicle that will fit your basic needs. The best way to find these deals is to plan your trip ahead of time and keep checking the website or calling the agency. When they offer a deal that fits your needs, grab it by booking the rental in advance.
