Frequently asked questions

How do I find the best deals on a Charleston Budget car rental?

CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. However, booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.

Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Charleston?

You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What's Charleston's minimum age to rent a car?

Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Charleston is 21. Make sure to review Budget's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.

Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Charleston?

That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Charleston. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Charleston trip can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 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 a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car 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 add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?

Budget requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.

Do I have to return my Budget rental with a full tank?

At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Charleston?

Charleston has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to head 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 Budget offer one-way car rentals?

Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different Budget. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
