What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get the best prices on a Raleigh Dollar rental car?
We try to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. However, reserving your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Raleigh?
Make sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Raleigh?
Most suppliers in Raleigh set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check 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 Raleigh?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Raleigh. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Raleigh getaway can choose a higher-end car model 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 in the United States. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Raleigh. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Dollar require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Dollar does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Dollar 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 model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Dollar?
We recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with the needle at "F". But, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Dollar. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Raleigh has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else North 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 Raleigh. If you need to add a dash fun to your Raleigh trip, you can also drive to Adventure Landing and enjoy an afternoon riding the park's attractions.
Does Dollar offer one-way rentals in Raleigh?
Dollar usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different Dollar. However, there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
