In Europe most people know and rent from either Avis or Hertz.

They are not cheap to rent from, however they are reliable and have cars in "good shape".

I was wondering if that also apply to the US (especially Washington DC area)??? Or are there other company(s) that the experts in tripadvisor would suggest/prefer??

Hello - Alamo, Budget, or Enterprise are also good companies here in the US. My personal two that I like best are Enterprise or Alamo but any of the others are good too. I use websites www.travelocity.com or www.orbitz.com to get a good cross section of prices.

For the DC area Enterprise is my favorite. Hertz is good here as well. Avis is pretty expensive but usually has the same type of vehicles as Enterprise and they are well-maintained. Dollar and Thrifty are your cheaper ones that usually have some crappy vehicles that are not as well taken care of (cleanliness, primarily) But Thrifty over Dollar if you had to choose.
