KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Cornelius

  • Car rentals in Cornelius, North Carolina, are a great way to explore everything this town just outside of Charlotte has to offer. Located on the coast of Lake Norman, Cornelius has many outdoor activities and also city escapes to offer to those driving car rentals in Cornelius. While Cornelius is served by a few routes stemming from the Charlotte public transport system, these do not run frequently and can experience frequent delays. Cornelius car rentals will allow you the freedom and flexibility to visit places like Jetton Park and Ramsey Creek Park.
  • Those traveling to Cornelius by plane will likely be landing at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT). You can pick up car rentals in Cornelius right away after you land. To get to the Rental Car Facility, exit the arrivals and baggage claim area and walk across the crosswalk into the Level 2 lobby of the Hourly Deck. Here you will find the car rental desks. If you are not flying to CLT, you may instead be arriving at Concord-Padgett Regional Airport (USA). Here, the car rentals are located directly within the terminal’s arrivals area so there is no need to exit the building to find them.
  • Driving car rentals in Cornelius is pretty straightforward. Local drivers are usually respectful and follow a relaxed driving style. Roads are typically paved and in good condition, unless you are driving on a gravel or dirt road close to the shores of Lake Norman. This area of North Carolina does not often experience extreme weather, but may be subject to flooding after heavy rains. Always check the weather and road conditions before hitting the road after a storm.
  • Driving in Cornelius car rentals may be challenging at certain times of the day when residents commute to and from nearby Charlotte for work. For example, try to avoid Interstate 77 between the hours of 7 am and 9 am and again between the hours of 4:30 pm and 6 pm. In addition, you may need to keep an eye out for wildlife suddenly crossing the road near the lake to avoid hitting them.
  • Book your car hire in Cornelius at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Luxury hire cars in Cornelius are around 88% more expensive than other car types, on average

Nothing was liked! My booking was for 4/4/24-4/6/24 and was scheduled to pick up my vehicle at noon on 4/4 but when I arrived at hertz there was no one there and sign on their door said they would be back at 3:00. There was no one at the location and therefore I was unable to get my rental. I returned at 3:30 and the sign now says back at 4:30…my entire day was off schedule and I missed an important meeting!!! I will never book thru kayak or hertz again.

Cons:

Reserved a Malibu or similar. Showed me an SUV. Told him I didn’t want an SUV, Was told it was a free upgrade and they had nothing else. Said I don’t like driving SUVs. He went inside, I followed. Finally he handed me keys, pointed and said take that silver car. Rude, never went over for damage.

Pros:

The car was clean and drove nicely

Cons:

My boyfriend booked the rental for me online for a wedding we were attending out of state. He had to leave before me and when I picked up the car they wouldn’t let me use the rsvp b/c I didn’t have his cc. They told me I had to cxl my online rsvp and rebook at a different rate. The new rate was twice as much! Plus there was a non refundable cxlation fee of $80! It was 3 times what we experienced to pay and it took forever to get the car b/c there was only one guy working at this location. Never again will I use this company.

Pros:

Nothing. The booking experience was smooth and easy, but the inventory wasn't there to back up what was booked. I Called the location to verify the address and was told they had no cars available. That left me having to scramble to figure out what to do.

Cons:

I was able to book and they didn't have any cars. We were transporting teens to help with hurricane clean up and had to inconvenience a family that had other plans to get them there since there were no cars.

Even with a reservation for pickup at a specific time (for a work trip) the wait time was over an hour with very few cars available. Seems reservations do not mean much in the larger picture which makes it difficult for me to choose enterprise again.

The only ‘con’ I have is that I am still waiting for a final receipt. I dropped it off last Wednesday and today is Monday, and I don’t have a final bill. But that’s minor. Overall, I would definitely rent from Budget again. 😊

This car needs to be pulled from rental use. It has nearly 63000 miles and has been driven hard. Many dings and scratches on exterior. Suspension is shot and I could hear and feel every bump in the road. Finally, I had to get a jump start at the hotel for my final drive which was to the airport.
