Book in advance: As per records, Charlotte airport receives millions of travelers annually and since it is also a major car hire pickup location, it is advised that you book the rental car as much in advance as possible. This is because this makes it really difficult for the companies to maintain variety for on-the-spot renters & you also pay way more for last minute rentals. So pre-book!
Minimum rental age: To rent a car at Charlotte airport, you need to be 21 and above, however, it is not that you won’t be able to hire a car if you are under 21 it is just that suppliers charge a young driver’s surcharge from such drivers. Read the deal specific T&Cs as age requirements can vary from supplier to supplier.
Bring along the important documents: Along with the rental voucher, bring your driver’s license (DL), your credit card and the international driving permit (IDP) for your car pickup at the airport. Note that you need your IDP only if your DL is in some non-roman language. This also applies to the additional drivers, if any, that you have added to the rental.
