The District of Columbia, otherwise known as Washington D.C. or simply D.C. is the capital of the United States of America. D.C. is served by three major airports, while several major highways pass through the region including Interstate 395 and I-66. Car hire in the District of Columbia allows for a no-fuss way to get around this busy city, and allows you a sight of the country's most famous residence in the United States, The White House. Other popular attractions include the Smithsonian Institution and the Lincoln Memorial, where visitors can learn more about the great man and his role in US history.

Ever fancied yourself as a bit of an astronaut? Drive over to the National Air and Space Museum, which houses the biggest collection of notable aircrafts and spacecrafts in the world. Watch one of the many programmed science demonstrations and learn about how things fly; you can also visit the planetarium where you can feel like you are shooting through space.
When visiting the District of Columbia it is important to note that driving laws may vary from other states. It is useful to know that when driving you cannot enter an intersection unless you can drive straight through it without having to stop. It is necessary that you wait for the traffic ahead of you to clear as you will block the intersection. At crossings and intersections, pedestrians and cyclists always have the right of way in any situation; even if the crossing is not marked.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
