Maryland car rental information

The state of Maryland has a temperate climate, but can still experience winter snowstorms and, being a coastal state, can have some severe rainstorms. In the seasons where this type of weather is likely, an SUV of any size makes a safe car rental option. If you’re planning to rent a car in Maryland to enjoy the stunning waterfront in the summer months, a convertible can be a good way to enjoy the salty air. Likewise, a compact vehicle can work well for those looking to take a road trip in the state, since car rentals in Maryland of this vehicle class can make journeys economical and afford travelers autonomy. Because the state connects the northeast with Washington, D.C., and is also home to many government institutions, its thruways, such as Interstates 70, 95, 695 and 895, offer great accessibility and ease of travel.

Like the rest of the country, traffic in Maryland operates on the right-hand side of the road and speed limits are clearly posted. Typically, speeds on urban freeways and interstates will be marked at about 65 mph, with semi-trucks directed to not exceed roughly 55 mph. Additionally, these commercial vehicles are restricted from operating in the left-hand lane. In business areas, the speed limits for divided and undivided roads—typically local routes—are around 55 mph. What’s more, all vehicle occupants are required to wear a properly fastened seatbelt. Individuals who are of legal drinking age should be advised that it is illegal to operate a vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or above. When considering a car rental, it’s critical to consult with Maryland’s department of motor vehicles ahead of the trip to understand new guidelines or laws that may have recently changed.

If you’re hoping to grab a car rental in Maryland, you’ll need to be at least 18 years old. If you’re between the ages of 18 and 25, you should expect to incur a young drivers fee; however, with a rental car comparison, you could secure a cheap car rental to offset this cost. Regardless of age, all renters must have a government-issued, valid driver’s license and a major credit card with a significant available balance. International travelers may need a passport or at least a photocopy of the information page. While an IDP—International Driver’s Permit—is recommended, it’s not required. A translation of the driver’s license into English, if the original is in another language, is essential.

Is it worthwhile to book a rental car in Maryland?

The state of Maryland is situated on the Atlantic coast and boasts large water features, such as the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River, which create a rage of inlets, water-side towns and islands that are best accessed with independent vehicles like a rental car. While cities of interested like the state’s capital of Baltimore do have public transportation, journeying between cities, like Baltimore and Annapolis, may be tedious on local trains, since these journeys often require transfers and travel times are almost double compared to driving. What’s more, securing cheap rental cars can ultimately be more economical if your travel itinerary includes multiple stops and some off-the-beaten path sites, like the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge or Kent Island.
