KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Wheaton

  • For the new travelers arriving in Wheaton who don't know much about the area, you should consider renting a car to help you navigate around the city and the neighboring areas. Car rentals in Wheaton will help you move conveniently around the city. Although the city has efficient public transport, hiring a car will allow you to choose your own route and departure time other than those set for the city’s public transport.
  • When you are arriving in Wheaton City through the Washington, D.C. Dulles International Airport (IAD), you should consider renting a car among the various companies located a short drive from the airport. The company rentals include Alamo, Hertz, Budget, Dollar, Thrifty Enterprise, and Avis. Each of these companies provides a free shuttle to ferry customers from the terminal to its car rental counter. Renting a car at IAD will allow you to travel around the city more conveniently and smoothly from the airport to your preferred destination in the city.
  • When driving Wheaton car rentals, you should put in mind the road signs so as to avoid causing accidents. This is to avoid running into those pedestrians who jump on the roads without observing the approaching vehicles. The city is also bike-friendly, having many cyclists on city roads. Car Rentals in Wheaton will offer you 24-hour breakdown assistance in case your car breaks down during your driving in the city.
  • If you want to travel in Wheaton City during morning and evening rush hours time which are from 6 and 8 am and 4 and 6 pm, respectively, Car Rentals in Wheaton will be of great benefit to you. At these times of the week, Wheaton experiences congestion and traffic jams on most of its roads. For you to get rid of this challenge, you will have to reschedule your adventure to the off-peak times.

Jun 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff wasn't outright rude at least.

Cons:

I rented the car for two days. Once I showed up, the staffer said that the rental would have to be for three days, since the car rental place was closed on Monday. He also mentioned it when going over all the other terms of the rental; if I wasn't paying attention I wouldn't have noticed it. When I protested and said that we had agreed for two days, the staffer shrugged and said it wasn't their problem. The staffer wasn't rude or unprofessional, he just didn't care.

Pros:

Manager and her crew did their best to help multiple people not having a car waiting for them despite having a reservation ...

Cons:

No car waiting us and, when it finally showed up, it reeked of pot. Since there was no other car, we had to take it. We ended up calling them and replacing the car with no problem, but still a total hassle ...

Pros:

The car was in good condition and operated well throughout the rental period.

Pros:

I did not like anything at all

Cons:

They did not have any cars on the day of our reservation even though we booked our car in advance. The whole point of reservations is to book a car and time slot. They should not do over bookings and inform us in the case of car unavailability so that we can arrange our plans accordingly.

5.6 Fair

Aug 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff were friendly.

Cons:

Pick-up took an hour. Company is definitely a pandemic profiteer in several respects, one example being their toll policy. Many toll booths only accept E-Z Pass and not cash so the license plate is charged, Enterprise will charge the customer additional fees in addition to the customer paying the toll. I explained were I was going to staff (inter-state) and received no mention of this. I also informed them that I did not own a car and have not driven since the pandemic started. I should have been updated on current procedures concerning tolls. Enterprise is definitely not be my first choice in the future.

Aug 2020

KAYAK

Pros:

The staff was friendly and pickup/drop off was convenient and quick.

Cons:

The rental car I was given was an absolute disgrace. It was not cleaned, much less sanitized. It was a cheap tin can Kia that shook on the highway if you drove over 60mph. I did not feel safe at all. When I booked on Kayak, I saw I could get an SUV for just $1 more, but when I asked at the Avis counter they told me it would be an additional $20. I will not rent from Avis again with the condition of the unsanitary and unsafe car I was given. Very disappointed.

5.6 Fair

Dec 2016

KAYAK

Cons:

Somehow the Avis system couldn't process the rental for more than 30 days even though I was able to book the car online for more than 30 days. This caused a problem and delayed me when I dropped off the car.
