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 Enterprise. Don't waste time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. Having your own vehicle enables you to go to the locations you want to see the most, when you want. Make your next vacation to South Carolina more enjoyable with an Enterprise rental car.
With over one-hundred thousand people, Charleston is a city that has lots going on. Guests come to enjoy Charleston's local attractions. But you may have your eye on exploring the captivating art scene and a diverse population. Whatever you choose to do first, you'll want to see as much of Charleston as you can during your vacation. And with your Enterprise rental car, you'll be able to see and do more of what this city offers.
We work with several of the most dependable car rental dealers in the world. Enterprise started back in 1957 with only seven vehicles. Now, they're recognized as global leader in the rental car industry, with over 7,600 locations in 85 countries. Enterprise takes pride on fantastic customer service and being available when you need them the most.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, booking ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Enterprise's minimum age to rent a car in Charleston is 21. Make sure to check Enterprise's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Charleston. Economy or compact automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's luggage and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Charleston vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Charleston. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Enterprise requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Enterprise will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
We recommend a full to full policy. You should receive your car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Enterprise. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Charleston has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else South Carolina has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Charleston.
Enterprise offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Charleston, having your own ride lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to discover more of South Carolina, you can drive when you like, without having to spend time waiting for the bus or wave down a taxi.
