What you need to know before you go
How do I get a Charleston Ace car rental at a great price?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Charleston?
Make sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Charleston?
Ace's minimum age to rent a car in Charleston is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Ace's policy to know what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Ace rental car should I get for my trip to Charleston?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Charleston. Compact or economy cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Charleston vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Ace in the United States. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Charleston. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Ace car rental?
Ace requires a deposit when you book your rental. Ace will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Charleston. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Ace?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Ace rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Ace. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Charleston has plenty 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 after you've checked off all the activities in Charleston.
Does Charleston Ace offer one-way car rentals?
Ace usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
