On average, the trip price will range between $59 to $104, but how much an Uber costs from the Washington Dulles International Airport to Washington D.C. is determined by a few different factors. Here are a few tips to get the lowest price on your ride from the airport:
  • Use UberPool Sharing a ride with other travelers heading to D.C. could cut your cost in half.
  • Check other rideshare apps Uber may be the most popular, but it might not be the cheapest option. Look at apps like Lyft to compare prices before going with the quickest option.
  • Aim for non-peak hours If you’re competing with 30 other people for an Uber after your flight lands, the demand drives up the prices. Landing at less-popular hours could save you those extra costs. If that’s not possible, post up at an airport restaurant and wait for the surge to die down before booking your ride.
  • Move your pickup location Many airports add a surcharge to Ubers picking up at the airport, increasing your final price. Taking a free shuttle to a nearby hotel and being picked up from there could save you a few bucks—especially if you time it right.
  • Catch the metro instead Using the Washington D.C. Metrorail Silver Line to get to and from IAD will usually cost a maximum of $6 one way—though this option will also take more time.
