KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Concord

  • Public transportation is not an ideal choice when you want to explore the city or travel to locations far out of the established routes. Moreover, some routes might not operate on weekends and during holidays. Car rentals in Concord are your best choice for exploring the city conveniently. You cut the waiting times for public transportation and do not have to carry your bulky luggage around. If you are a car enthusiast, visiting The Charlotte Motor Speedway, The Mustang Owner’s Museum, and Hendricks Motorsports Museum will be the highlights of your trip to Concord.
  • Concord Car Rentals offers a great way to explore Concord on your own terms. However, it's important to abide by the local laws concerning blood alcohol content (BAC). Any BAC level of .08 or above is considered a violation and can result in an arrest for driving while impaired (DWI). Furthermore, people under the age of 21 cannot consume any amount of alcohol at all while driving in Concord. This means if you're under 21 and are found to be drunk while driving, you may face penalties regardless of your BAC level. For a worry-free vacation, we recommend adding an additional driver to your rental agreement so that you can responsibly enjoy alcoholic beverages without sacrificing road safety.
  • The main airports for travelers to Concord are the Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) and the Concord-Padgett Regional Airport (JQF). Concord-Padgett Regional Airport is approximately 10miles from the city center, while Charlotte Douglas Airport is 30 miles away. The car rental counter at the regional airport is within the terminal. The rental companies here include Budget, Enterprise, Avis and Hertz. The Rental Car Facility at Charlotte Douglas International Airport is in the Level 2 lobby. Here, you can find Alamo, Hertz, Budget, Enterprise, Dollar, National, Sixt and Avis.
  • Most Concord car rentals require renters to use a credit card as an accepted method of payment. However, some companies like Enterprise also allow debit card payments, provided that you attach additional documentation and have a certain balance on your account. The name on the credit card needs to match that of the main driver. Some cheap car rentals in Concord will accept cash for payment, such as Dollar. However, such a company may however require a security charge on a major credit card prior to getting your rental car.
  • Driving in Concord is generally easy because the roads are well-paved, and the city gives priority to maintaining safety on its roads. Be careful to stick to the rules because breaking them comes with hefty penalties. If you are driving on a two-lane road, you should stop when a school bus is picking up or dropping off kids. Moreover, give pedestrians way at marked and unmarked crosswalks and intersections.
  • Concord car rentals may allow third-party drivers under certain criteria. A domestic partner or a spouse is usually allowed to drive at no extra cost. The additional drivers must meet age and license requirements and appear in person at the rental location. If a debit card is used for payment, with some companies like Enterprise, only the renter's domestic partner or spouse may be included as an approved driver beyond the original renter. An extra charge may apply for every extra accepted driver; this amount will be added to the total rental cost.
  • Rush hour traffic is one of the biggest challenges when driving car rentals in Concord. The rush hours are typically between 7:30 am-9 am and 4:30 pm-6:30 pm. Most traffic is concentrated on major highways and the central business district. Consider traveling outside the rush hours to avoid wasting time. Floods are common in Concord. If you are caught up in one, move to higher ground and do not drive through flooded streets or moving water.
  • Book your car hire in Concord at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Concord are around -33% cheaper than other car types, on average

    Concord has only a few free parking spaces. You might get these at your hotel, a few tourist spots, and the shops you visit in the central business district. Most of these establishments offer their patrons free parking for only an hour. In most cases, you will pay for parking in the city. Instead of driving around trying to find a parking spot, you can use one of the apps available to direct you to one. Parking is enforced in Concord, so you might receive a parking ticket if you park in an unauthorized spot with your Concord car rentals.

This is a small outlet with the manager running the place. He was great to deal with.

Cons:

The car had an issue with one tire. I don't fault the location because that happens and it was a slow leak that would not have been obvious when the car was returned by the previous driver. Another Enterprise took care of the issue and had the tire replaced.

I never got the car. I was called the morning of my trip, suggesting that the car I wanted wasn't available and that I would need to get the next available size up at my expense. As if that wasn't bad enough, my travel plans had me in town around 6 PM, my reservation time. I was told that it needed to be by 4 PM. That was impossible, so I canceled the reservation. It was utterly unprofessional to blindside me like that on the day of my trip.
