Top tips for renting a car in Charlotte

  • Driving in Charlotte is the most convenient and effective way of getting to know the city, as all the major interest points are pretty scattered across a 15-mile range. Downtown Charlotte, which is known as Uptown, gets quite busy, but just a short ride away you'll find the cool North Davidson St. and Plaza Midwood neighborhoods. A car is the perfect option for those looking to explore other destinations outside the city — including the US National Whitewater Center, an outdoor recreation facility that sits 15 miles west of Uptown and offers several outdoor activities. Another popular destination is Lake Norman, which is only 30 minutes outside of Charlotte.
  • All the big car rental agencies, including Alamo, Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT)'s Consolidated Rental Car Facility, which is in the Level 2 lobby next to the Hourly Parking Deck, right in front of the Arrivals terminal.
  • Uptown is one of the most crowded areas in the city, particularly when there are big events going on, such as a Carolina Panthers game, so beware of pedestrians if you're driving there. The whole of Charlotte gets pretty packed during NASCAR season, so you may want to avoid going to shopping malls in the city center. The Interstate 485 (I-485) is a highway loop that encircles the city, and, while it may be a little difficult to navigate, it is usually less congested than the Interstate 77, which flows north-south on the western side of Charlotte.
  • Although traffic is manageable, roads are usually fairly busy throughout Charlotte during peak hours, so avoid rush hour traffic both in the morning (between 7:30 and 10 a.m.) and afternoon (between 4 and 7 p.m.) if you don't want to be stuck driving for longer than needed. The I-77 in particular tends to get packed during rush hour, in which case it's best to take the 385 loop around the city. When there's a major sporting event taking place, it is recommended that you refrain from driving in the Uptown area.
