Are either IAD or DCA nightmares in car rental returns? Trying to determine if I should rent or uber for upcoming VA suburban role. (15mins from IAD, 30mins from DCA) I don’t leave much time Thursdays

If you’re 15 min from IAD take IAD. Youre not getting to DCA in 30 min if you’re 15 from IAD.

Traffic to DCA is unpredictable. Could be anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes at 3:15 on a weekday. I do IAD because it is dependable and easy.

I should also mention flight times out from DCA Thursday are way better e.g. approx 4:30pm, 5:30pm, 6:30pm and 8:45pm IAD only has 7pm option home

In that case do the dca, aim for the 5:30, but know you will be on the 6:30 sometimes.

OP I work in Tyson’s and live next to IAD. Come and go from IAD

OP i’ll pick you up from the airport on my way to Tyson’s and then that way I can drive in the HOV lane and drop you off in Tysons

Brilliant deal.. you can get an uber account and get reimbursed too if you like ha

^ Nailed it.

I appreciate the input folks, I suppose I will figure it out once I start there but this all helps. To answer the Q about staying until a certain time on client, it wasn’t mentioned. I often work west coast and need to leave sooner than that so I figure 5:30pm is reasonable vs staying until a 7pm. It sounds like all agree I should be driving myself in a rental rather than uber though?. I asked as I know some airports have a shit show return location/system that could add an hour to Thursday commute.

10 mins walk from silver, shows as leaving at 15:30 to make terminal by 16:30 👍🏼
