Car rental alternatives in Charlotte, NC

Charmed
in Charlotte

It seems prescient that the city of Charlotte was originally established after a local gold discovery, and is now a prominent US banking city. Which is to say that Charlotte is full of treasures. The culinary scene has been making a name for itself with new takes on Southern cuisine, and the wealth of museums offer plenty to stimulate the mind.

The temperate climate also makes Charlotte an ideal place to bike, hike, raft, and race cars — and you don’t even have to leave town. For the easiest, breeziest entry into the Queen City, pick up your Charlotte airport car rental alternative and start moseying.

Charlotte favorites

Charlotte might not come off as a place for adrenaline junkies, but it’s full of opportunities for hair-raising thrills.

NASCAR Hall of Fame

You don’t have to be a diehard racing fan to enjoy hopping into the racing simulator or attempting the Pit Crew challenge. You can also see artifacts from big moments in racing history.

US National Whitewater Center

This facility on the Catawba River was created as a training facility for Olympic whitewater slalom race training, and is now also open to the public for wild rides, or just chilling on the 1,300 acres of forested land.

The Visulite Theater

Be forewarned you must become a member by paying a $1 fee, but this beautiful theater has all the intimate, coziness of a small venue with quality sound, so you can be up close to your favorite big name acts.

I had such a great time driving James’ Mustang! The car drove really well, it was clean and James was very flexible with me. I needed to rent a car because, unfortunately, my car was in the shop. I kept having to extend my trip because the work on my car was not complete. I really appreciate James for being flexible with me and for helping through this process!

Great rental. Easy process. And a very affordable option compared to the normal rental cars
Bryan - September 29, 2018
Phenomenal rental experience with Sean. In addition to being as smooth and convenient as you can hope for renting a car, Sean goes above and beyond: 1) Responsiveness: Sean responds to any question/message immediately (seemingly 24/7!). He consistently provided help to resolve any hurdle 2) Professional, seamless operation: Sean’s a pro’s pro at renting cars, and he’s thought of everything. From convenient transportation from the airport, to car wash included, to a video that explains the pickup process! 3) Network of support: Everyone you interact with along the way (shuttle drivers, hotel staff, even car wash employees) know-and very clearly like—Sean. They are eager to help all his renters! Should also mention that the car was perfectly clean and in phenomenal shape! Will rent from Sean again if I’m back in Charlotte area

Skip the rental car counter

Hit the road

While you could book a Charlotte car rental alternative on Turo to skip town to visit a delightful neighboring city, the natural beauty just outside of the city would be a shame to miss.

Crowders Mountain

Take your Charlotte car rental alternative less than an hour out of town for incredible hiking and rock climbing that will give you stunning views of nearby peaks and the Charlotte skyline in the distance.

Lake Lure

Best known as the setting of Dirty Dancing, Lake Lure in the Blue Ridge Mountains will give you the time of your life, or just a tranquil lake getaway, the choice is yours.

Boone

Head two hours north in your Charlotte car rental alternative to Boone, to make your way into the Appalachians. Work up the courage for the ziplines and Mile High Bridge, or go for the most rewarding hiking in the state.

Ahhhh where do I begin???? So listen, don’t tell Yusuf but he’s probably the best host on Turo I have personally ever dealt with!!! This is coming from someone that has been a host/renter since this site was formerly Relay Rides (I know i’m old lol). Also coming from someone who has rented heavily over the past few years in L.A., Miami, Fort Lauderdale, NYC and the beautiful Queen City of Charlotte. Listen, his communication, flexibility and pricing is bar none the best. As far as this gorgeous Audi...don’t hesitate to rent it. This car is an absolute beast in all the right ways. Cranking out 600hp, coupled with a beautiful exterior/interior and an exhaust that is YouTube worthy......for this price and coming from this host, this is a no brainer folks!!!! You’ll get plenty of looks, stares and some folks will say to you, “That can’t be stock...” lol. Rent from Yusuf and know you’ll have no worries and will be guaranteed a great experience! Yusuf thank you brother and I’ll keep in touch!!!

This was the best experience I have had with a car rental! Kunal is a great, very trustworthy person. Even though there was an issue with me getting the car back on time he made sure he could drive me to the airport so I didn’t miss my flight. If I could give him a 10 I would. Plus his cars are good for the environment! I will make sure to always use his cars when I come to the area!

Good first-time rental. Car was older and pretty bare bones, but I knew I did not rent a luxury car. Included a USB port. Got us to and front our destination just fine. Had some trouble with alignment on the right front tire—wiggled and shook upon acceleration plus some slipping on wet roads. Sean assured us he would tale care of it as soon as we had dropped it off. Sean was highly responsive and helpful. Overall great experience that was also as expected. I’ll be renting from Turo again.

I Traveled From New Orleans To The Queen City Of Charlotte NC On A Weekend Business Retreat. I Viewed Several Vehicles Online But The Tesla Seemed To Captivate My Attention The Most. Upon Arrival I Was Greeted By Jacob Who Welcomed Me With Open Arms And Gave Me A Complete Overview Of The Vehicle I Had Been Conversing With Him About Online. I Was So Intrigued By His Knowledge That I Automatically Knew I Would Be Driving Off The Parking Lot In A Reliable Vehicle. His Passion For Vehicles And Consumers Are Genuine. I Must Say This Was By Far The Best Car Renting Experience I Have Ever Encountered Hands Down! I Would Like To Thank Jacob For His Sense Of Urgency And Hospitality. I Will Definitely Be Returning.

The communication between the car owner and I was much appreciated. He responded expeditiously to all my concerns. There wasn’t any problems with the vehicle. Keeping contact when unexpected situations arise is definitely the key. My business trip was successful because the turo rental car was convenient. I would definitely recommend using Brian for all occasions. The roughest part of the trip was pick-up and return finding a suitable spot to park the car.

This was my first rental with Turo, and Sean was great to work with. He gives excellent instructions, has a great car ready to go, and helped me through everything. I loved that the car wash/vacuum was even available to use without an extra charge at the end of the rental. I would not hesitate to rent this car again with Sean!

Renting from Sean on Turo was a great experience from beginning to the end. Check in and check out was a breeze with clear instructions and use of the user friendly Turo App. Communication was great, any questions I had were answered immediately. I had to extend my trip and extending the rental was also so quick and easy with the App. I needed the car at the Charlotte’s airport and loved the arrangement they have where I was shuttled quickly from CLK to Hilton Hotel where the rental car was waiting for me. Avoided crazy airport lines to car rentals, airport traffic and stress of driving out from the airport where I usually get lost taking wrong lane. Returning the car was also so easy, Sean was present at the Hilton parking , took a pic of the odometer and was done. If , like me, you choose the option to clean the car yourself, all is prepared for you. Going to the appointed car wash was free, fast and fun and saved me money. Loved my little pink Chevy Spark, car was super clean and in great condition. Service provided by Sean was excellent, above the board and Im happy, satisfied customer. It was great convenience, absolutely hassle free, fast and easy. I will definitely recommend Sean’s rentals to my friends and family and will be returning client every time Im in beautiful Charlotte. Turo is the new black in car rentals! Thanks Sean!

The pickup and return was so simple and convenient. I needed to make multiple adjustments during before and during my trip and the owner was quick to respond and was very understanding. The corvette was absolutely amazing and in great shape. We probably had 20 thumbs up along the trip from different people admiring the car. I would highly recommend this host and this car, we would love to rent from them again!!!

Kevin was a great host with a great car. Very accommodating on pick up and drop off. Car could have been a bit cleaner when I picked it up but it's not a deal breaker. There's also some minor dings and scratches on the car (not noticable from afar). Car is great to drive. Just do your research before hand and you'll get a fun zippy car. Battery is good for 70miles on Eco+ Pro mode which is plenty for short daily intercity travel. I wish the cord for the charging brick was a bit longer in length. The fuel tank for back up generator is extremely small (~4 dollars to fill up on mid grade fuel at current prices) but good for ~65-70mi.

Great car. Absolute pleasure to drive and Michael and his team worked within my schedule. Perfect experience. Will be using these services and his cars again if I don’t buy my own by then. Excellent service and product. Couldn’t ask for more. I’m a little bit of a freak about glass being extra clean in cars so I can’t even complain because my standards are very high for that but that would be the only downside which doesn’t even count. Outstanding vehicle and service. Thanks Michael.

Aly was such a amazing person to rent from. The car was in a easy accessible area and key was in a lock box on car for very easy pick up and return. She got back to me with my questions as soon as they were asked and I couldn’t have asked for a better car. Kia has definitely stepped their game up with this vehicle and to top it off this one is one of a kinda all thanks to Bosworth. Car has a aftermarket intake to let those twin turbos give you the giggles as they spool up. Now power with the car is completely insane for yet again a KIA! Car pulls hard and never lets you lift out of the seat, pulls just like a twin turbo V8 M5. And no matter where you go people are breaking necks at it and asking a crap ton of questions about it. But I would recommend Aly to anyone and everyone.

It was awesome. My first time using Turo. They had a shuttle that picked me up from the airport and brought me straight to the car. Questions were always answered with a couple mins if not immediately of asking them. Car was clean and exactly as described. Messaged me on the last day of my trip and made me feel comfortable that I was pressed for time and if I needed more it was very easy to do through the app. They recommend using wiki car was which I was going to use but they were closed. Maybe because it was Sunday or maybe it was because I was in North Carolina during hurricane Florence lol. Either way there was a hand car wash down the street that I used. Maybe some people don’t like washing there cars but I do so it wasn’t a big deal. And only cost me $3.00. As I said this was my first time using Turo and it was a pleasure! And it was also less then half the cost then I could have got a car for using my Costco car rental for. Thanks again!!

James is a class act. He appears to run a small fleet of very nice Turo cars, any one of which would be very nice to be seen in the next time you plan to fly to Charlotte-Douglas International Airport for a weekend of cruising Sonics, and tending to the wide variety of scholarly pursuits that will benefit your stature when you are pursued while driving one of James’ fine vehicles. If you want to discover why Downtown Charlotte is not called Downtown, it is called Uptown; Uptown Charlotte is called Uptown, but Downtown Charlotte doesn’t exist you need a James rentals. Because there are essentially no sidewalks in Mecklenburg County, if you want to explore you will need a car, and if you need a car, you need to rent one of James’ vehicles. Safe and well-maintained, every one of James’ fleet vehicles is nicer and cleaner than the rusting Chevy Chevette, still sitting in your driveway at home, straddling the razor thin line between qualifying as an antique classic that needs some work, while the Kidney Car folks are appraising it for organ donation in case the C’vette doesn’t start again the next time you attempt to restart it by rolling downhill and popping the clutch. James rents nice cars to nice people, and he is a great person to rent from. Checkout his 5-star reviews! Safe travels!

I tried TURO for he 1st time in March 2019. James is the "5 STAR" host you want to rent from whether you're a Charlotte native or in town & need to get around! He provides great customer service, communication and flexibility along with the cool factor! James is definitely the host you want to contact when in Charlotte! Proof - I've rented from James "9 Times" since my 1st rental in March. Go Figure!!

Best rental experience ever. Tip for future renters: dont press the button on shifter to put car in drive. The button puts it in park, just tap down for drive with foot on the brake. I had to call Parker and he quickly told me just that and away we went.

This was my first time driving a Prius and I’m in love. We drove from Charlotte to Greenville and back with lots of short trips here and there between, and we didn’t have to fill up until we returned the car. And then it only cost $23 to fill the tank. Also, John was wonderful to work with. He was very communicative, helpful, flexible, and friendly.

Jonathan was on point from start to finish! Communicated clearly and easily with me and approved my extension with no problem! The Civic is a great little sporty ride I'm sure I'll be renting again!

Best Charlotte driving roads

Bairds Creek Road

Shoot down NC-105 from Boone to Valle Crucis in your Charlotte car rental alternative for challengingly tight hairpin turns paired with instantaneous elevation shifts that will keep you guessing.

Great Smoky Mountain Expressway

For a mix of unforgettable views with exciting driving, ascend into the Smokys near Cherokee to pick up US-74 and wiggle your way through the peaceful streams and dramatic topography to Balsam.

Mountain Waters Scenic Byway

Because mountain driving is the ultimate, take this journey in your Charlotte car rental alternative to the Nahantala Forest, where US-64 ribbons for over 60 miles through two river gorges and many waterfalls.
