Important information about Fairfax car rentals

How to get from Dulles International Airport (IAD) to the rental car center?

If you are flying into Fairfax, the most likely destination is Dulles International Airport (IAD). If you opt for a car rental from one of the numerous car rentals at IAD, you will visit the centralized car rental center along Autopilot Drive. To easily get from the terminal to the consolidated car rental center, you will board a rental car shuttle bus in Baggage Claim Level's Curb 2C and 2D pick-up stations. Because a few car rental companies, such as Thrifty, Alamo, and Dollar, transport their customers via shared buses, you should locate your rental car’s brand poster before boarding the shuttle bus to the car rental center. Every 15 minutes, the rental shuttle bus departs from the IAD terminal to the car rental center in a journey that takes about 7 minutes.

What documentation do I need to rent a car in Fairfax, VA?

To rent a car from any of the many Fairfax car rentals, you first have a valid driver's license. Your license should not have acquired any substantial endorsements in the previous year. If your license is not in the Latin Alphabet, you may require an international driver's permit as an alternative to your native country's driving license. Besides your license, you will also need a credit card. A valid credit card should carry your name. Please validate that your debit card is linked to your Mastercard or Visa if you plan to use it as an alternative form of payment for your Fairfax car rental services. You also note that most of the car rentals in Fairfax, including Alamo, Dollar, Enterprise, and Budget, decline cash payments to settle your rental charges. Other than these documents, you also need to understand that most car rentals in Fairfax have adopted 25 as their minimum for renting a car. However, young divers aged between 21 to 24 may be allowed to rent certain classes of cars, including compact, standard, and economy cars, if they prepay the daily cumulated young drivers’ surcharge.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Fairfax?

Before hitting the road with your rented car from Fairfax, it is important that you familiarize yourself with the current key traffic rules and regulations that will govern your driving experience in Fairfax. For example, if you're driving with children under eight, you must ensure their safety by renting them an appropriate child safety seat for the entire trip. Your children aged between 8 to 12 must be buckled up in the back seats, while all travelers using the front seats should wear seat belts for the duration of the trip. If you are caught in the rain and must use your windshield wipers, ensure your lights are also on. Also, keep in mind that drinking and driving is a crime. To avoid being charged with reckless driving, avoid driving with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) above 0.08%.

Can I drive to other states, regions, or countries with a rental car from Fairfax?

Due to Fairfax’s proximity to Canada, most car renters may contemplate driving across the border to their nearest dream destinations in Canada. With most Fairfax car rentals allowing cross-border driving, you can easily visit your destinations in Canada with limited possible restrictions. You should, however, note that not all types of cars can be allowed to cross the border. Among the restricted cars are large trucks and passenger vehicles. Similarly, you should remember to notify your rental car service provider before embarking on your cross-border driving. This would allow the agency to issue the necessary documents and update its GPS navigation systems to cover your desired destinations across the border.
