Maryland is situated in the Mid-Atlantic area of the United States, bordered to the south by Virginia, while West Virginia and Washington D.C are to the south and west. Pennsylvania lies to the north. The biggest city in the state is Baltimore but the actual capital of Maryland is Annapolis. The state is known by its three nicknames: 'the Old Line State', 'the Free State', and 'the Chesapeake Bay State'. With a series of well-connected highways which lead from the state's largest airport, Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, travelling through the state can be done seamlessly if you rent a car in Maryland.
Hiring a car in Maryland lets you travel the state with ease. Oriole Park at Camden Yards is the home of the Baltimore Orioles; a Major League Baseball side with three World Series titles and a roster of current exciting talent. Even if you're not a baseball fan, the thrill of the crowd at the game makes it a worthwhile trip. Take the children to Maryland's largest family entertainment centre where they can try their hand at mini golf, clamber up the rock wall, or experience the twists and turns of the Wildcat rollercoaster. Both little and big kids will enjoy this fun packed attraction.
When driving in Maryland it is essential to have an International Drivers Permit which you must apply for before you travel. This should be carried along with both the card and paper part of your driving licence, it is not valid on its own. If you want to turn left at a junction you must do so ahead of a car coming from the opposite direction which is also turning left. At major junctions you may find signs with green arrow signals which indicate left hand turn lanes. If you get in the wrong lane by mistake and leave it too late to change, you must make the turn that is indicated.

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.
