KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Matthews

  • Specific routes in the city have reliable public transport, but driving car rentals in Matthews gives you the flexibility to access many scenic places. You can go to Boone's Cave Park, about 49 miles north of the city, Sugarloaf Mountain, approximately 50 miles southeast of the city, Sliding Rock, around 50 miles northwest, and High Lock Lake, about 60 miles northeast of Matthews.
  • Most flights to Matthews land at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT). Several car rental agencies are at the airport, including Dollar, Turo, Easirent, Ace, and Alamo. These rental agencies are located near the baggage claim terminal across the street. Shuttle buses offer convenient services to connect passengers to the rental car facility. Most car rental agencies recommend passengers book a vehicle in advance for easier pick-up.
  • When driving car rentals in Matthews, expect streets with lots of sidewalks, crosswalks, greenways, and walking trails. Avoid blocking the crosswalk with your car and drive slowly to ensure the safety of pedestrians. To drive a rental car, you must have a minimum age of 25 and have a valid driver's license. Though drunk driving is prohibited, city laws allow a blood alcohol concentration below 0.08.
  • Some Matthews streets are affected by traffic, mainly between 6 am and 8 am and 5 pm. and 7 pm on weekdays. The most congested streets are the intersection of W. Matthews Street and N. Trade Street. You can also experience heavy traffic at Matthews Township Parkway. Driving Matthews car rentals on these roads during rush hours can cause delays and inconveniences. Consider using alternative routes. Driving in the city can also be challenging during winter. On snowy days, the roads can be covered in snow and slippery, affecting your vehicle's stability. So, driving rental cars in snowy weather requires skills, slow driving, and keeping a distance between vehicles.

Horrible, Will never rent again. Made a mistake when setting up location at airport. When I went to pick up I was told it was the wrong location and they charged me double for an honest mistake. Never again.

Apr 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was great - efficient and helpful. Everything was on time and easy!! Thank you!! 😊

Cons:

Car was not what we ordered - the minivan we paid for was damaged so you exchanged it w a Nissan Pathfinder. This car was clean and perfect in every way - except it did not have quite enough room - which is why the minivan was ordered. I understand things happen -and I really appreciated you having a substitute car ready for us when we arrived! Unfortunately my boss who booked the rental said he paid extra for a minivan, and total invoice seemed even higher than he expected. He was not happy we paid too much for a substitute, especially as we later had to finagle people and luggage around.

Cons:

I ordered a Tahoe or similar and they didn’t have anything but a van. Had to come back to get the van and then waited 30 minutes the second time I came back for it. When I drove off the tank wasn’t even full. It was only at 1/4 tank. When I went to drop off the vehicle a few hours early at 7:50 am the manager told me they don’t open for 10 minutes. From beginning to end was a terrible experience. Left the keys in a drop box and left.

6.0 Okay

Feb 2021

KAYAK

Cons:

Cigarette smoke. The car including the trunk smelled like smoked cigarettes. At first when we put the luggage in the car, it seemed like the smell was only coming from the trunk, driving the car further I realized that my hands smelled heavily like cigarettes (which I’ve never smoked in my life) and I realized it was coming from the steering wheel. Not pleased with that at all.

Pros:

The gentleman at the counter was nice.

Cons:

I had to take my car back to the rental car place and get a replacement. The car's seat were filthy with burns in them. The car also had a sputter that made it seem as if it was going to cut off. It was replaced with a better care, but still there were scratches and dings on it as well. I would not recommend or use Ace rental car again.
