KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Middletown

  • Though Middletown offers a wide range of public transport options, they can never compare to the freedom car rentals in Middletown give you when exploring the city. These public transportation options operate on fixed schedules. In addition, they only cover some routes in the city. However, with a car rental, you have the flexibility to drive to various places and fulfill your exploration desire. For example, you can go to French Creek State Park, about 51 miles east of the city.
  • Most flights to Middletown land at Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI). Most car rental agencies, including Budget, Alamo, Orbitz, and Avis, are located at the rental car facilities at New Bridge Road and Stoney Run Road. Passengers can get to the car rental offices using free shuttle services from the airport terminal. Long queues can inconvenience your journey when booking a rental car at the last minute. That's why it is advised to book your car in advance.
  • Most streets in Middletown are connected with proposed roads or existing streets, making it easy to navigate the city. In addition, the sidewalks and crosswalks are well-marked. Thus, you can enjoy a smooth journey when driving car rentals in Middletown. If you drive on the toll road, you must pay for a ticket. Also, the legal blood alcohol concentration when driving in the city is 0.08%.
  • Traffic during rush hours, mostly between 6:30 am to 9 am and 4 pm and 7:30 pm on weekdays, can be hectic. This is mainly because these are commute times for people going to and from work or children going to and from school. One road mostly with heavy traffic is Highland Avenue. Therefore, avoid driving on this route or start your journey before traffic hours to enjoy a convenient journey.

Booked my car reservation several days ahead of my arrival.. upon my o time arrival I was told they had no cars available. The gentleman working the counter explained that after 4 hours they cancel reservations because most people reserve a car and don’t show up. Budget left me and my you son stranded in Harrisburg, PA. Worst customer service I have received from a rental company. I will never use Budget rental, and I suggest to whomever reads this, to seek alternate rental providers.

Pros:

I liked being able to pick up and return car at airport. Counter could use more staff. Car was ready when I arrived and the return went very quickly.

Cons:

I thought the option for refueling would mean you would pay for what you used. It looks like I paid for a full tank of gas which I would not have used. It is a great option but they should be fair and charge based on what you actually use.
