Arranging your trip to the capital city is easier when you go through ebookers for your flight. The District of Columbia is served by three airports. Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) in Arlington, Virginia, is the closest to the city centre Washington at four miles from the city centre. It serves Alaska, American, Continental, and many other carriers. Dulles International (IAD) is twenty-six miles away in Sterling, Virginia, and serves dozens of domestic and international carriers, including TACA, Lufthansa, and Virgin.

Ticket prices are often lower at BWI, although a ride into Washington with BWI Airport Taxi will cost $63.
Transportation from the Airport
All three of Washington D.C.'s airports handle heavy commercial traffic and millions of passengers every year. As a result, each of the three airports is connected to the capital by multiple bus and shuttle services, such as the Washington Flyer, which departs Dulles every thirty minutes for downtown DC and costs just $10. The service also stops at DCA and doesn't require reservations. Renting your car through ebookers is easy at these airports, as all three are served by many rental companies, including Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Thrifty, and Hertz.

Temperatures in Washington D.C. range from summer highs of 30°C to a brisk -5°C during the winter months. Rain occurs throughout the year but peaks in July and August when many residents have left the city on their own holidays. Visitors are advised to check the local forecast before arriving.
Washington D.C.'s Main Attractions
Washington D.C. is a city of monuments, museums, and marvels. The District of Columbia is where you'll find the Smithsonian Institution.
