How long to allow; taxi from Dupont Circle to IAD

Our flight leaves for London 22 20pm on a Tuesday night

BA tells us to be at their check-in desk 2 hours before departure

My undoubtedly better half panics if we are not in good-time!

What time should we book taxi for from hotel?

Thanks good folk

You'll be leaving at the tail end of rush hour; the travel time will be heavily dependent on construction and any accidents on your particular night of departure. If it were me and the weather was good, I'd get in a cab at 19:30 or even 19:45, figuring that should get me to the airport between 20:30 and 21:00, which is adequate for that departure. If you don't want to get there less than 2 hours early, leave at 19:00, particularly if it is raining.

HI your hotel should be able to book you a taxi and they will know what time it should come. I just did this a few weeks ago and they were right on the money. It was also during rush hour. Enjoy your trip.
