Baltimore Driving Information


 
Driving is on the right side of the road.


 
All Baltimore Washington Airport rental cars are automatic transmission.


 
Your local drivers' licence is required.


An International Drivers' Permit (or IDP) may be required, especially if your local drivers' licence is in a language other than the local language (you may inquire when you pick up your car).


 
Baltimore Driving Stress Level: 7/10

If heading to Washington D.C., be aware that the signage from the car rental facility is rather poor and quite confusing, especially to Route 495. All roads, however, ultimately lead to highway access, in both directions (North or South).

If you are comfortable with multi-lane highways and have a GPS with your car, then driving will be stressful, but not too difficult. Be aware of other drivers at all times; as with driving in any city, most people are in a hurry to get where they are going.


 


Baltimore Washington Airport Car Rental Recommendations


 
IHateTaxis.com has a mixed recommendation on a Baltimore Washington Airport car rental

A BWI car rental is a good way to explore Baltimore and the surrounding area, but is unnecessary if you are headed to Washington D.C.



 BWI Baltimore Washington Airport Car Rental Shuttle


A free shuttle service carries customers to and from the Baltimore Washington Airport approximately every 10 minutes. Passengers arriving on flights should take the free shuttle from the lower level terminal for a ten-minute ride to the new facility. When returning a vehicle, look for highway directional signs to the facility.



 
Car Rental Shuttle Tipping Recommendation: Tipping optional, USD 1-2
