Top Tips For Renting a Car in Alexandria

  • With the Potomac River to the east, many regional parks and golf courses scattered around the city, and the George Washington Memorial, Alexandria has plenty to discover – and there is no easier way to do it than by car. Don’t depend on public transport and seize the opportunity to explore Alexandria in your own time and pace by renting a car for your stay in the city. Washington, DC is also only a 20-minute ride away and is always worth a visit.
  • Reagan National Airport is the closest airport to Alexandria and is only 10 minutes from the city center. The airport sports rental car agencies right on its grounds, which makes continuing your journey invariably easier. Pick up a car directly from there and start your time in Alexandria without any hassle.
  • Although Virginia has a subtropical climate, there can be sleet and ice in the northern parts of Virginia, like Alexandria, in the winter. The city has a higher-than-usual rate of rainfall per year and, during the winter months, roads can become treacherous due to the mix of rain and snow. If there is ice or snow, ground markings can be covered and snow piles up on either sides, making the roads narrower. Drive accordingly and adjust your speed to enjoy a safe ride.
  • Rush hour usually hits Alexandria between 7 and 9 am and 5 and 8 pm. Especially roads to and from Washington can face increased traffic, like the I-295 or the George Washington Memorial Parkway. Try to avoid starting your trips during these times for a smoother driving experience and acquaint yourself with alternative routes beforehand, or rent a GPS system with your car.
