BWI to D.C.: Rental Car vs Public Transportation?

Jump to last reply

Hi, we'll be flying in to BWI and sightsee Baltimore for 1 day, and then head out to D.C. the next day. Could you please let us know which of the two options below is better or if there's a third option to consider?:

1) Rent car in BWI and drop it off next day by 10:30 a.m. in D.C. central, near Foggy Bottom metro, where it's close to our hotel in D.C. Cost $75. (How bad is the traffic going to D.C. on a weekday at that time?)

1) Rent and return to BWI. $45. Take public transportation to D.C. (Foggy Bottom metro station) with 2 carry-on luggage for 2 people. Is it a big hassle? How to go about this?

Thanks!
