A Guide to IAD Car Rental Companies

If you are flying into Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) then you may be on the hunt for reliable information related to IAD car rentals. With all of the choices available to travelers, you are likely to find the information somewhat overwhelming. This guide will help to point you in the right direction to finding the car company that will work for your rental needs.

Getting Recommendations

If you have friends or family members who have rented a car from Dulles Airport then they may be able to provide you with a bit of useful information that can help you to locate a great IAD car rental company. Not only will your friends and family members be able to provide you with useful pointers but they may be able to also share information that can help you to avoid problems that they’ve run into in the past.

An added bonus to getting recommendations from those you know is that they may have extra coupons or coupon savings codes that can help you to save a fair portion of your rental fees.

Your AAA Membership

While we are on the topic of saving money off of your IAD car rental, consider finding out what savings your AAA membership entitles you to. AAA membership can help travelers save as much as 60% off of their entire trip so it could be worth it for you to look into a membership if you don’t already have one. Frequent travelers, whether for business or pleasure, can benefit from an incredible number of savings offered by AAA – take the time to find out if AAA can help you.

Travel Websites

There are many travel websites that can certainly provide you with a range of car company details and pricing options; however, it can prove to a bit overwhelming for a traveler looking for basic information!

Tailoring your search to provide results for IAD car rentals can help to keep your search results on track, otherwise you do run the risk of pulling results for hotels and flights too. One good feature about travel websites, like Travelocity and Expedia, is that you can search by your preferred price range.

Available Car Rental Companies

There are several IAD car rental companies available for you to choose from, including Avis, Alamo, Hertz, Budget, and National. Determine the size vehicle that will best suit your needs and verify that they have one available for you to rent. Keep in mind that all car rental companies have rates that will vary based upon location, season, and even the days of the week.

A good rule of thumb is to give the car rental company a call prior to leaving for your trip in order to ensure that they have the car you have reserved waiting for you. All too many travellers have arrived hoping for a minivan to accommodate their family of six only to find a two-seater hatchback waiting for them. Save yourself a bit of a headache and confirm your reservation!
