Dollar Car Rental at Baltimore Marshall
Dollar Baltimore Marshall Airport
The BWI Airport, or the Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport is located approximately 10 miles south of Baltimore City, and 32 miles northeast of Washington, D.C. It is an airport offering high quality services to its passengers, and is filled with a great number of useful facilities, of which some are options for ground transportation. There are several car hire companies available, such as Dollar Baltimore-Washington International Airport, as well as Hertz, Avis, Budget and National, and they are found at a new car rental facility on Stoney Run Road and New Ridge Road.
Since that the airport’s car rental companies are located at a distance from the terminal buildings, there are shuttle buses available for the transport of passengers. The shuttles are free of charge, and depart approximately every ten minutes from the lower level areas of the terminals. They will take just ten minutes to reach the offices and vehicles of Dollar. The shuttles also operate twenty-four hours a day, as Dollar is open at this location all day and every day of the week. Passengers are recommended to make an advanced reservation for car hire, as certain vehicle categories can be in high demand, however, it is also possible to hire a car directly over the counter. Most people, however, find that online reservations are convenient, as they can be completed from home or work in advance of arriving at Baltimore-Washington Airport.
Dollar has been a popular car rental company for many years, and is present at many of the major airports around the world. The company offers their customers a large selection of high quality vehicles, as well as very competitive car rental rates. Their services also include the rental of equipment items such as child seats and satellite navigation systems, which could be essential for a leisure or business traveller. Child seats come in various sizes, and are therefore can be used for children of all ages. The GPS units from Dollar have some very smart features, and will ensure that you don’t get lost in Baltimore, Washington or whichever city you decide to travel. They are also useful for longer journeys, and come pre-programmed with many points of interest, enabling the motorist to easily find places such as shopping centres, restaurants, medical facilities, tourist attractions and various places of business.
The items mentioned above will cost a few extra dollars per day of car hire, or per rental contract, but Dollar hand controls for disabled drivers are free of charge. This device is useful for persons with a lower limb disability, as it is designed to operate the main functions (brake and accelerator) of the vehicle. From Baltimore-Washington International Airport hand controls are only used on certain vehicles with an automatic transmission, and therefore an early booking is recommended. Time will also be needed to have the device fitted to the vehicle.
The Baltimore-Washington International Airport car rental companies, including Dollar, arrange their vehicles into various car categories, and bookings are therefore made accordingly. The car categories available from Dollar include Economy, Compact, Midsize, Standard, Fullsize, Premium, Minivan, SUV and Standard Convertible. Each of the categories contain vehicles of a different size and style, and one is sure to fit the needs of all Dollar’s customers. The smaller and cheaper rental cars are found in the first categories, and could be similar to the Chevrolet Aveo and Ford Focus, while larger vehicles are more expensive, and similar to the Ford Taurus, Ford Crown Victoria, Buick LaCrosse and Dodge Caravan, seating up to seven passengers. SUVs are very popular amongst many travellers, and include the Ford Escape, Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, Chevrolet Traverse and Chevrolet Suburban. The last two mentioned are more spacious, with room for seven people. Further vehicles for hire by Dollar could be similar to the Jeep Wrangler, Ford Mustang Convertible, Ford Fusion and Dodge Avenger.
One of Dollar’s unique services is vehicles from the ‘Lock Low and Go’ Specialty category. When a customer chooses this category, they will receive a Compact or larger sized vehicle, but will only pay Compact vehicle rates. The car to be driven is chosen by the rental location staff at the time of collection, therefore the customer will not know whether it will be a Compact, Fullsize, SUV or even Minivan. It will, however, be great value for money, have at least five seatbelts and room for at least two luggage items.
The Baltimore-Washington International Airport car hire companies expect their primary renters to be at least twenty-one years of age, although not all vehicle categories are always available to renters under the age of twenty-five. Higher rental rates are also charged to younger drivers. Usually, however, any vehicle category may be chosen, and the customer will qualify for car rental provided that he/she has a major credit card and a valid drivers license, issued either in the United States of America or in Canada. Persons from different countries may also hire a vehicle, but will need further documentation, which may include an International Driving Permit, a passport and a return airline ticket. Some of the major credit cards accepted are American Express, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, PHH, Sears and GE Capital.
