Important information about North Charleston car rentals

Can I drive to other states, regions, or countries with a rental car from North Charleston?

Since all of the car rental locations in North Charleston sit in the state of South Carolina, you can take your car rental in North Charleston to any other state in the United States during your rental. If you want to drive your rental into Canada, you most likely can do so. It's always best to let your rental car company know that you plan on doing this so they can give you any additional documentation necessary to take the car to Canada. Remember that you probably cannot do a one-way rental to a city in Canada. Most car rental companies in North Charleston will not allow you to drive your car into Mexico.

Can you rent a rental car in North Charleston without a credit card?

It will most likely be very difficult to do a car rental in North Charleston using only cash. The reason for this is that when you use cash, there is not much in the way of security for the rental car company during your rental term. You may find some local car rental companies that will let you do cheap car rentals in North Charleston for cash, but generally, you will only be able to use these cars in the local area. You can also utilize a debit card to rent a car instead of a credit card. Some of the limits of doing this could be a limit on the type of car you can rent, and as such, you may not be able to rent a luxury car in North Charleston. Just as with utilizing cash to rent a car, when you use a debit card, there could be a large hold put on your card while you have the car.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in North Charleston?

For any travelers that are making the trip to North Charleston from another state in the United States, you will find driving laws here are pretty similar to what you're used to where you currently reside. For example, you'll drive your car rental in North Charleston on the right side of the road and find speed limits posted in miles per hour. When you drive your car rental in Charleston, you need to remember that you cannot use your phone in your hand while you're driving. That means that you cannot talk, you cannot text, and you cannot do things like browsing the internet or social media while you drive the car. You can use your phone in a hands-free manner while you drive the car. The driver and all of the passengers in the vehicle must be wearing a seatbelt while driving in the car. Keep in mind that this is a primary law in South Carolina, so you can be pulled over just for not wearing a seatbelt.

What documents does an international traveler need to rent a car in North Charleston?

If you are traveling to North Charleston from a country other than the United States, you may need to provide additional documentation to obtain a North Charleston car rental. Travelers from Canada can generally provide their rental company with a Canadian enhanced driver's license. Just keep in mind the name on the license must be the same as the person renting an economy car rental. For those traveling from another country besides Canada, you must provide a valid driver's license from your country of origin. You also need to provide a valid passport from your country of origin as well. Not all car rental companies require an international driver's permit, but it is never a bad idea to have this on hand when renting a car.
