Top tips for renting a car at Raleigh-Durham Airport

  • If you get a Raleigh-Durham Airport (RDU) car rental for road trips or long-distance journeys, it would be helpful to have another driver share the driving with you. Most car rental providers at Raleigh-Durham impose an extra charge to register an additional driver. However, other on-site car rental agencies provide free additional drivers registration for renters' spouses and immediate family members. Nevertheless, additional drivers must meet similar rental requirements as the primary renter, including age and driver's license requirements.
  • Although public transit is available from the airport, consider getting a car rental at Raleigh-Durham Airport. Traveling on public transportation can be frustrating and inconvenient, considering the rigid schedule and delays. With a Raleigh-Durham car rental, you have the flexibility to explore the region at your convenience and explore hidden gems in the city. It's a great way to avoid the regular tourist traps, enabling you to feel and live like a local and discover locations that pique your interest. The airport features various rental providers offering you diverse options to choose from.
  • When dropping off your car rental at Raleigh-Durham Airport, plan your route and allow enough time for the journey. It will save you the additional charges you may incur for late returns. If your rental provider operates on a full-to-full fuel policy, fill up your gas tank at gas stations near the airport. Once you park at the drop-off area, take photos of the car, including the fuel indicator, to avoid unexpected additional charges.
  • Picking up or dropping off your car rental at Raleigh-Durham Airport is not easy during peak time. You will have to deal with heavy traffic congestion during the peak hours, especially on both ends of the I-40, the main highway connecting the airport to Raleigh and Durham city centers. The rush hour on this highway starts in the morning when people are headed to work. Also, there is heavy traffic in the evening when people are commuting home.
