FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Charlotte Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Charlotte

Car Rental at Charlotte Airport

Famous for nature and NASCAR, Charlotte is a destination that showcases the best of the South. This North Carolina city has an exciting blend of historical buildings and modern attractions, with enough to keep the whole family entertained. Find rental cars at Charlotte Airport (Charlotte Douglas International Airport) and make your way around town in style.

What can I see in Charlotte?

Although NASCAR racing was born in Daytona Beach, Florida, it soon spread to Charlotte. In fact, some of the first races were held here – and today the sport is commemorated in the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Videos, cars, and race simulators make this a great experience for any NASCAR fan. Just remember to slow down when you get back into your rental car from Charlotte Airport!

Another kind of history can be found at the Levine Museum of the New South. This center is dedicated to the South after the Civil War, showcasing the ways in which the region has flourished since then. The history of the Civil Rights Movement is explained here while the permanent exhibit, "Cottonfields to Skyscrapers", explores how life in the South has changed. Get there with your car hire from Charlotte Airport to learn more.

Tip

While you're in NC, don't miss the chance to try some Carolina-style barbecue. This is said to be the oldest form of barbecue in the country. The meat is almost always pork, usually chopped, pulled or shredded, and prepared with a spice rub before being smoked. Connoisseurs will tell you that, for the best barbecue, you'll need to take your cheap car rental from Charlotte Airport to the nearby city of Lexington, just 60 miles away.

Charlotte for Kids

The local theme park of Carowinds boasts no fewer than thirteen world-class rollercoasters. These rides will seriously get your adrenaline pumping, with some coasters seeing you cross the border between North and South Carolina at breakneck speeds. If you'd prefer something more sedate, gentle rides are available. Admission will also get you into the Carolina Harbor waterpark. Get there easily when you rent a car at Charlotte Airport.

Youngsters are sure to be inspired by the Carolinas Aviation Museum. You'll find this right inside the airport, so depending on the time of your flight, you could head straight there. Several restored heritage aircraft are on display here. You can also see the airplane used on US Airways Flight 1549, known as the "Miracle on the Hudson" after its emergency water landing. Visit the museum to begin your vacation, then pick up your cheap rental car at Charlotte Airport.

What historical buildings can I see?

The Historic Rosedale Plantation, a little over 200 years old, is open to the public. This offers you a chance to see the old way of life in the South. Guided tours are available, often focusing on specific aspects of the plantation's history, such as its alleged collection of ghosts.

The Billy Graham Library celebrates the internationally renowned pastor, perhaps the most famous Charlotte native. Even if you're not religious, this museum is a fascinating journey through Pastor Graham's life, including his heyday leading revivals across the nation and beyond. His childhood home has been painstakingly restored for a touch of period interest.

Getting around Charlotte

Wherever you travel around the nation, cheap car rentals in the United States are usually the best way to get around. You'll find them particularly convenient if you can hop straight into your vehicle as you get off your flight. For example, if you want cheap car rentals in San Jose, you'll find things are a lot easier when you get cheap car rentals in San Jose Airport. The same is true here. Charlotte Airport car rentals will allow you to begin your vacation comfortably.

Which road trips can I take from Charlotte?

Lexington, NC, home of great barbecue, is one hour's drive away. A little further afield, you can visit Chapel Hill, the area's most famous student city. It's about 140 miles from Charlotte or a little over two hours' drive.
