What you need to know for the road
How do I get a Charleston Advantage rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your car. But reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my car rental 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?
Advantage's minimum age to rent a car in Charleston is 21. Take time to read through Advantage's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Charleston?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Charleston. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Charleston trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, 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. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Advantage require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Advantage requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Advantage will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Advantage?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Advantage. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Charleston?
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 once you've checked off all the activities in Charleston.
Can I get a one-way rental from Advantage?
Advantage offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different Advantage. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
