Advantage Rent a Car? Good?

Im thinking of renting a car from DCA for a few days to visit Williamsburg. Then returning it to DCA and taking the metro to the Westin City Center

1) Is Advantage Rent a Car like other major brands? PU at the airport & nothing tricky like discounters out west?

2) Should we consider the train to Williamsburg? even if we want to see Yorktown and other spots?

Thank you for your replies, and bit of information will be most helpful

You will need a car in Williamsburg if you want to go to Yorktown or Jamestown. Also there is only one train a day from DC to Williamsburg which might not fit your schedule.

Thank you lam91897,

Is the best way from DCA to Oxon Hill by taxi after I drop off the car?

Then after 2 days in Oxon Hill a Taxi or Metro from Oxon Hill to Dupont Circle area?

Taxi, bus or bus to Metro are probably your best bets. Try www.wmata.com and use their trip planner to see what are your bus and metro options.
