If you want to see everything Charleston has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Avis. Don't spend time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. Having your own ride enables you to go to the attractions you want to see the most, whenever you want. Make your upcoming getaway to South Carolina even better with an Avis rental car.
With over one-hundred thousand people, Charleston is a city that has plenty going on. Visitors come to take advantage of Charleston's local attractions. However, you may have your eye on exploring the charming art community and a diverse population. No matter what you decide on first, you'll want to check out as much of Charleston as possible while on your trip. And with your Avis rental car, you'll be able to see and do more of what this city offers.
CarRentals.com works with the most dependable dealers in the industry. The first car rental company to be located in an airport, Avis has over 70 years of providing rentals to travelers from all over. With over five-thousand locations internationally and a diverse fleet of vehicles, Avis is sure to give you a great experience from when you pick up your car to when you drop it off.
We try to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. However, reserving your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Charleston is 21. Take time to read through Avis's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Charleston. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Charleston trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Avis requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You should get into your automobile with full tank, and you should return it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Avis. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Charleston has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else South Carolina has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Charleston.
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at another Avis. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Charleston, having access to a vehicle lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to explore more of South Carolina, you can leave when you like, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or having to be committed to a bus schedule.
