With some work I have to take, and having gotten to see DC not too long ago in terms of tourist stuff, I was thinking of not getting a rental car to save some money. I'd be getting in the evening of a weekday, staying 3 nights, and leaving that last afternoon. So, basically, shuttle from the airport to my hotel and back at the end, along with 3 round-trip cab fairs from my hotel to the interview spots. It just seems like it should be a ton cheaper to do that than pay a rental fee for ~3-4 days. Thoughts?
I am a simple man from a small Midwestern town, so I figured asking big city people for an opinion was a good idea in case I am missing something obvious. Thanks!
Edit: totally misread your post. Yeah, if you're only going to be around the Dulles/Chantilly area, a cab should be fine. You'll just have to call one every morning, I'm sure. Not as readily available out there (unless your at the airport). Cost should not be prohibitive.
