Car had break issues and the drivers side was scrapping really loud. Other than that the personnel were great and very nice. Experience was number 1. Car lowered my rating because the car was not in good condition.

Pros:

I was unaware that the rental car place would be closed for the return.

Cons:

I believe the cleanliness of the vehicle was not up to par and that time needs to be taken to shampoo the interior. The seats were stained and the carpet could have been vacuumed. It did not feel at all comfortable. I believe the outside only was washed and that was it.

4.4 Mediocre

Jul 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

I booked a rental car to be picked/dropped at Baltimore airport through Kayak; however, the booking was done for a different location, about 30-40 miles from the airport. I did not realize that at the time of booking, as I had entered BWI as pickup/drop off location and thought that the address shown with my rental booking was for the airport Avis location. This was my first visit to Baltimore and and I have no idea of the name of roads for airport Avis location or otherwise. KAYAK SHOULD MAKE ABSOLUTELY CLEAR AT THE TIME OF BOOKING THAT THE RESERVATION IS FOR DIFFERENT LOCATION, PARTICULARLY IN CASE OF AIRPORT, AS NO BODY KNOWS/REMEMBERS AIRPORT LOCATION ADDRESS FOR EVERY CITY. the Avis staff at BWI airport was good and helpful. Avis 800 customer care sucks, was dishonest and quoted much higher price than that quoted at the airport office.

Cons:

I booked a rental car to be picked/dropped at Baltimore airport on 07/09/2017 through Kayak; however, the booking was done for a different location, about 30-40 miles from the airport.

Convenient location for drop off.

Could not do an after-hours drop-off at Baltimore location, which meant we had to pay for a night of parking though we were done with the car.

I reserved a van over two months ahead of time. They called me at 8 PM the night before I was going to pick it up and told me there is no van. I had to go with a different company the next morning and pay twice as much. Making a reservation apperently does not reserve anything - be aware of this.

May 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Friendly staff - no line, immediate service. Everything was explained and thorough. Saved a bunch of money vs. renting at BWI as we didn't have the airport-related fees, and the rate itself was much cheaper. Even with a few Ubers back and forth to make it happened, we probably saved $300 for a 12-day rental.

Cons:

Facility isn't the nicest in the world, but it serves the purpose.

Nothing. I just meet a fraudulent agent. I reserved everything online, and I bought full coverage as well. When I arrived at NextCar agent at Liberty road, Baltimore, the person told me that we can not give you the car unless you buy our personal full coverage ( the value was twice the typical one near 25$/day). They told me that I have to cancel the ones that I bought online. Officially they had no commitment to my online reservation.

Pros:

Nothing to like in this place

Cons:

The cars are Filthy inside out. they don't take time to clean them, i had to change 3 cars to finally agree on one. the first one had a bold tires, the second one had scratches all over the car but you can't determine the damages as the body is dirty. the last one was OK with a bad tire sensor that kept displaying an error every time you start the car plus a change oil message that kept prompting. If i have time i would report them to the BBB. Not worth the money i paid. VERY disappointing that kayak list them on their website. i use to trust kayak!

May 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

The car was decent but smelled funny, change the oil light was on.

Cons:

Service was terrible, was promised unlimited miles before booking but it wasnt true, they said faster checkout with a major credit card but still had to jump through many loops to prove I had my own insurance even after acknowledging that my credit card would cover me, a way for them to try and sell me unnecessary add ons. Tried to explain it to the associate but she shrugged me off telling me it's policy, false advertising is what it is.

3.6 Poor

Apr 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

The car worked.

Cons:

They were rude when we picked up the car, they were incredibly rude when calling our insurance provider, whom we know personally. They were incredibly vague about the drop-off policy and threatened an abandonment fee when I even brought it up. I called corporate to resolve the issue and the people I spoke to, serveral people, we're even more rude, dismissive, and insulting. I was out in hold mid-sentence and transferred without any notification to the stor, which had no idea why I'd been transferred. I completely regret using them. The car had an air freshener hanging from the nirror, but still smelled.

Mar 2016

Cons:

The facility was not at the airport. The facility was closed before I was even reasonably able to travel the 30 minutes from the airport to get there. They transfer you to their "sister" company at the airport and apply "airport" fees to hike up your reservation. They steal your money with a smile on their face.

Car hire insurance in Baltimore

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Baltimore car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Baltimore.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Baltimore car hire.

Top tips for hiring a car in Baltimore

  • Because Baltimore is a short drive away from other states, you can visit several historical and cultural attractions while you are on vacation -- if you rent a car, that is. Renting a car will make it easy to drive into Washington, D.C. to visit the White House and presidential monuments. When weather permits, you can also visit several beaches on the coast of the Mid-Atlantic including Chesapeake Beach and Ocean Beach.
  • Baltimore is within close proximity of the nation’s capital. The Baltimore/Washington International Airport services all of Maryland, D.C., and Virginia. It offers an array of services to customers, including a number of options for car hires. For your convenience, all of the hire car companies are in the same place at the airport. Once you land and claim your bags, simply catch the shuttle to the hire car center.
  • When you are driving around Baltimore, be aware of traffic light cameras. Many traffic lights are equipped with cameras to catch drivers who are speeding or driving recklessly. Because you don’t want to leave Baltimore with a ticket, you’ll want to drive cautiously and carefully.
  • Baltimoreans have to deal with traffic jams which can lead to long commutes. So, during your vacation, you’ll want to choose to travel in areas and around the times that roads are less congested. Some of the heaviest traffic takes place on Interstate 695, also known as the Beltway. Morning rush hour in Baltimore is busiest from 7 a.m. – 9 a.m. In the evening, rush hour starts at 4 p.m. and continues until around 6:30 p.m.
  • Book your car hire in Baltimore at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hires in Baltimore are around 19% cheaper than other car types, on average
