KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Salisbury

  • Using car rentals is one of the most efficient and effective methods of connecting travelers to different points in Salisbury. Travelers who rely on car rentals in Salisbury enjoy the advantage of not getting worried about the costs of maintenance. Apart from low cost and affordability, relying on Salisbury car rentals during your visit to Salisbury gives you freedom of deciding where to visit and when. Compared to using public transportation, like buses and trains, where you are forced to follow certain routes and adhere to the established transport schedules, using rental cars will give you the much-needed freedom to transverse as many parts of the city as you may wish.
  • Consider renting a car from any of the cheap car rentals in Salisbury for a chance to enjoy self-driving to various destinations in the city. The minimum age for renting a car from all the major Salisbury car rentals is 21 years. However, you have to be 25 years or more for you to be able to rent any car of your choice. Drivers aged between 21 and 24 years, considered young drivers, can only rent a car whose seat capacity does not exceed 5 passengers. If you are in this bracket of young drivers, you won't be allowed to rent a luxury car in Salisbury.
  • Salisbury (SBY) Airport is the nearest airport to Salisbury, located around 4.7 miles away. Several car rentals in Salisbury provide high-quality and affordable rental cars to travelers from Salisbury (SBY) Airport. Some of the Salisbury car rentals you should consider visiting from Salisbury (SBY) Airport include Waters Car Service, LLC, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, or Enterprise Rent-A-Car agencies. All these agencies are located outside SBY airport and provide affordable car rental services.
  • Consider using electric cars in Salisbury if you want to have a trip that is economic, calm, and comfortable. These vehicles can be rented at affordable charges through Enterprise, Avis, Budget, and Hertz car rental agencies. Salisbury has 20 public charging outlets with Level 2 and Level 3 features, so you won't have any trouble finding a place to charge your electric rental car while moving around the city. Most of these Level 2 connectors provide electric car chargers without charge. Tesla Supercharger, ChargePoint, Greenlots charging station, and SemaConnect charging station are some of the popular electric car charging stations in Salisbury.
  • When using car rentals in Salisbury, you are advised to adhere to all road policies to avoid hitting other vehicles or passing pedestrians and cyclists. The law prohibits drivers from using their mobile phones when driving in Salisbury.

Additionally, Salisbury has many pedestrians moving from one region to another. Unfortunately, not all the pedestrians are strictly adherers to the road guidelines. Therefore, you are advised to minimize tailgating as much as you can when driving in the city to avoid running into cyclists or pedestrians.
  • While renting cheap car rentals in Salisbury, you should always be cautious of things like child safety seats and acceptable mobile usage. Maryland legislation mandates that children between 4 and 12 years and those under  4'9" tall should always ride in designated child safety seats.

Make sure your mobile phone has a loudspeaker if you must use it while driving on any major road in the city.

Friendly staff. Smooth, easy, fast paperwork process at the counter at pickup and dropoff. Only problems I had were finding the car, and knowing what to do when I returned. Very small diy airport, with minimal signage. I needed more and clearer info as a first timer there.
