Frequently asked questions

How do I get a Charleston Budget car rental at a great rate?

CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, whether you reserve your car. However, getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.

What should I carry with me when I pick up my car rental 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. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Budget's policies to know what the total cost is before you book.

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

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Charleston. Compact or economy cars are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's belongings and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Charleston getaway can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Does the United States require car insurance?

You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, 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. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with 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 reserve your vehicle for your trip to Charleston. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.

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

We encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Budget 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 keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Budget. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Charleston?

Charleston's small-town atmosphere definitely has its charms, however you may want to take to the road again after you've had an evening out in downtown Charleston or had a night out in downtown Charleston.

Can I get a one-way rental from Budget?

Budget offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different Budget. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
