Top tips for renting a car in Outer Banks

  • When visiting a popular vacation destination like the Outer Banks in North Carolina, the car you choose to rent depends mostly on what you plan on doing while you are there. Because there are plenty of outdoor activities and water sports in this part of the world, having a truck, an SUV, or a van may be a good choice to get all of your passengers and their stuff to some of these outdoor adventures. If instead you just need to cruise around some of the amazing places you will find here, a nice sedan would be a perfect choice, but make sure that it has air conditioning for the sometimes hot and humid months of summer.
  • There are some unique laws to consider when driving with children in your rental car in North Carolina. At a minimum, children under five years old or weighing less than 40 pounds must ride in the backseat of a vehicle. The state also recommends that children ride in the backseat until they are age twelve or thirteen but this is not an absolute requirement. You cannot install a rear-facing car seat in front of an active airbag. Even if a child is riding in the front seat, you should use a booster seat when it is appropriate to make sure that the seatbelt shoulder harness is sitting properly over the child.
  • One thing to remember about renting a car on the Outer Banks is that because of a lack of large cities, your choice for car rentals may be somewhat limited. A better option may be to rent a car in a larger city, such as Virginia Beach, and then make the drive to the Outer Banks so that you can have a wider selection of cars to choose from that may suit your needs better.
  • Book your rental car in Outer Banks at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate rental cars in Outer Banks are around 36% cheaper than other car types, on average
