What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get the best prices on a Charleston Dollar car rental?
We try to get you the best rates, whether you book. But getting your car ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Charleston?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Charleston?
Most suppliers in Charleston set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Dollar'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 your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Charleston. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal 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 and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Charleston getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle 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 from Dollar. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Charleston. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Dollar require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Dollar does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental 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 Dollar?
We encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Dollar rental with full tank, and you should return it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Dollar.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
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.
Can I get a one-way rental from Dollar?
Dollar typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
