How old do you need to be to rent a car in Maryland?

I’m going to fly into Baltimore to see my beloved Orioles play a weekend series. However, I was thinking of traveling to D.C. or Philly for a few days just to explore. I’m only 21 years old, so I wasn’t sure if I could rent a car. What age do you need to be to rent a car in Maryland?

You have to be 21 years old to rent a car in Maryland.
However, rental car companies often restrict the type of car you can rent and charge a young driver fee if you’re under 25, so don’t be surprised to see an increase in the price and a decrease in the availability of cars.
Rental car insurance is expensive, but remember that you can decline coverage if you have your own car insurance or a credit card that covers your collision damage waiver.
