I'm on my own ... (one woman's attempt at solo travel) by mp_addict19 on 6 September 2013 5:32am
 
I've been itching to get out and go to Washington DC, mostly to the Smithsonian museums and go to the National Holocaust Museum.

I did find a nice package under $1,000 (flight, hotel AND car), now, my question is, and please forgive me since this is my first time traveling alone, or try to if everything goes well: not sure how the rental car thing goes ... do I take a taxi to rental agency or is said agency in airport?

It's a rental through Alamo in Baltimore. Anyone here from there?

Anyway, I plan on going in December during the week before the holidays. I really want to get out of North Dakota for a day or two, go someplace different other than Minnesota or South Dakota.

Baltimore Maryland I am presuming? I think Pats is from there??

Usually you can collect your car at the airport, but it depends. Check your rental agreement - it will no doubt give you details of the pick up/drop off points.

Have a wonderful trip.

:)

I am not from Baltimore, but I know you should be able to pick up the car at the airport. Call them to make sure. I assume it's BWI airport. It's almost an hour's drive to DC. Baltimore does get some snow in December, but it's probably nothing to you. It wouldn't hurt to ask questions when you pick up your car.

Yes, Patty is from Baltimore, and I can introduce you to others, not on Palin's. Check with Alamo. Many car rental companies will have a shuttle that will take you from where the taxi's have a desk. http://www.bwiairport.com/en/travel/ground-transportation/trans/carrental

Was there anything in Baltimore you wanted to see, while you are in the area? I see museums are an interest, anything else?

Do you know which hotel is in your package and where it is located? If you want send me a private email @ michael.charton@gmail.com I know the area fairly well and Patty and my other friends can fill in any gaps.
