Top tips for renting a car in North Carolina

  • All vehicle occupants should be in a seatbelt when driving in North Carolina, while children under the age of eight or less than 80 pounds should be in a safety seat. Younger kids below five should be either in a forward-facing or rear-facing car seat, while those above five should transition to a booster seat before graduating to the adult seatbelt. If you don’t have your car seat with you, you can rent one from the rental counter.
  • Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the best attractions in North Carolina. If you’re driving up to the mountains, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, have enough gas. Most people don’t realize that driving up steep grades requires more fuel, and up in the mountains, gas stations and cellphone service are something of a rarity, and you don’t want to run out of gas there. Stay alert and use your headlights when required. Ensure you have your headlights on when driving at dusk or dawn, night, and when there is bad weather.
  • There are a few beaches in North Carolina, and a trip to these beaches is more than encouraged. Driving is allowed on most of the beaches in North Carolina. However, only all-terrain rentals and 4WD rentals will manage traveling on the beach with the beach’s soft sand. So, get yourself an AWD SUV or truck with enough space for your beach gear for a fun weekend on the shores of North Carolina.
