My experience with Airport Van Rentals was great. I'd happily rent (directly) from them again. We flew across the country and the employee was helpful, knowledgable and awesome to work with. There were some travel complications and she did her best to help us work out the details.

The only problem was it want very clear in the email I got how to pick up the van. We had to call a phone number but the email didn't say to do that. Other than that, it was smooth sailing. Everything went very well!

Although I made the reservation nearly 3 weeks in advance the car was not ready when I arrived. I arrived 30 minutes late and it still took 45 minutes to have the car ready. Once the car was ready...they sent me on my way with 1/4th tank of gas. When in Charlotte...avoid this Hertz location.

Generally, to rent a car in Charlotte you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. Additionally, many suppliers charge an added fee if you are under 25. Be sure to read through the supplier's terms to discover any additional charges is before you book your rental.

Does Charlotte require rental car insurance?

When cruising through Charlotte or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Many suppliers need proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy interim insurance through the rental supplier. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com during checkout.

Although many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check the rental car company's policy before you decide.

What is the difference between all the fuel policies?

Most suppliers allow you to choose which policy you want. Below is a list of the most common ones.

What fuel policy should I get?

We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your rental topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, find a filling station before you return the car. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited mileage is a good choice for those who don't want to worry about how many miles they are driving. You will just need to make sure there's nothing else in the small print that could add in extra costs.

Before you drive off

Make sure you check out a few things before you leave the rental lot. It's important to:

  • Inspect your car and determine if there is any dents or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Check the trunk to see if the spare is properly inflated and the necessary tools to change it are there
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
