Top tips for renting a car in North Charleston

  • Getting assistance from North Charleston car rentals facilitates navigation around the city, making business and leisure trips more comfortable. You can visit several areas close to the town, such as the Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. These lush grounds are about 12.8 miles from central North Charleston and include a zoo, making it suitable for trips with kids or friends. You can appreciate the area’s history by driving about 16 miles to the Colonial Dorchester State Historic Site in Summerville city. Conversely, you can go to the North Charleston Coliseum & Performing Arts Center on International Boulevard within the city center for a shorter ride.
  • You arrive in North Charleston via the Charleston International Airport, situated approximately 3 miles from the town’s center. This airport conveniently incorporates a Rental Car Pavilion, which you can find past the baggage claim at the end of the terminal area, opposite the bus stop. Some of the car rentals in North Charleston’s city center include Alamo, Hertz, Enterprise, National, Budget, and Avis. You can also find services from Dollar and Thrifty, which offer a direct and free airport shuttle to their pick-up location.

  • North Charleston ensures you can move through the town and nearby cities and states using the well-developed and connected roads, like Rivers Avenue and the I-526 and I-26 that link to Charleston and Mount Pleasant. To prevent getting lost along the streets, you can opt to integrate a navigation system into your vehicle. You will want to keep a lookout for pedestrians throughout your drive in North Charleston because many residents travel by foot and commonly use the sidewalks and roadways.

International Boulevard also services the airport, so you generally want to stay off the roads from around 6:30am to 9:30am and from about 5pm to 7pm.
