My husband and I are biking the GAP and the C&O Canal. We are starting in Pittsburgh and ending in DC. Does anyone have a good suggestion on who to rent a car from at the end of the C&O Canal? We are trying to avoid going into the city. Also, any recommendations of where to stay when I end the trip in DC? Thanks

Avis has an office on Wisconsin Avenue just a couple of blocks of the trail near its end. Another option is to continue to Reagan Airport. It adds a few miles but can be reached without going into the heart of town. As you might expect there are a number of rental companies that operate at the airport.

I have personally done the airport to airport rental, Pittsburgh to Reagan. Easy as a breeze. I dropped mine off at Reagan and it was super fast and I’m sure picking one up will be likewise. I stayed at a hotel in Arlington, 20th st. But that’s may be farther from the C&O than you like but getting to and from Reagan it was super close.
