KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Salisbury

  • Car rentals in Salisbury offer the most convenient ways of exploring attractions in and around the city. You can easily travel to the Salisbury Historic National Cemetery and Confederate Prison Site. The cemetery holds the remains of over 11,000 unknown Union soldiers. Rental cars also offer more privacy than public transit systems. As such, you can let loose, unwind, and make memories as you get the best of your trip. Lastly, rental vehicles offer more flexibility, unlike public options that operate on fixed schedules and routes.
  • Most flights to Salisbury usually land at Douglas Charles Airport (CLT). Car rentals in Salisbury provide cars right at the airport. Some rental agencies offering onsite services at CLT are Ace, Avis, Airport Van, Alamo, Enterprise, Easirent, Hertz, Dollar, Budget, and MEGA MC. They have rental desks within the terminal, on the Second Floor (Street Level), and the car lot is just a short walk from the terminal. They also provide complimentary shuttle services to their off-airport locations in the city. CLT is a very popular car rental location, therefore; ensure you book your preferred car in advance to secure it upon arrival.
  • There are a few tips you should note before taking a vehicle from Salisbury car rentals to the streets. First, driving is always on the right as the left lane is for passing. The city sees a good number of cyclists, therefore; ensure you stay alert when driving to avoid hitting them. Additionally, all traffic on any two-lane road in Salisbury must stop when a school bus stops to pick up or drop off children.
  • While driving in Salisbury is mostly easy, it can get complicated during rush hour. Salisbury experiences two rush hour periods, just like most cities. The morning rush hour is typically from 7 am to 9 am, while the evening one is usually from around 5 pm to 7 pm. The good news is that all roads do not experience extreme traffic congestion during rush hour. Avoid driving in streets in Downtown Salisbury, like 217 South Main Street, as they particularly get heavy traffic during rush hour.
  • Book your car hire in Salisbury at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Luxury hire cars in Salisbury are around 27% more expensive than other car types, on average

They are ideal for solo travelers and offer easy maneuverability on busy streets.

  • What is the speed limit in Salisbury?

    The speed limits for driving in Salisbury depend on the type of road and its location. Most roads usually have the maximum speeds posted by the roadside's right-hand side.

Unless posted otherwise, the statutory speed limit when driving on roads outside municipalities is about 55 mph.

Council Street and N. Main. Expect to pay around $2 per hour for this paid parking lot. It is illegal to park in a handicapped space with no proper signage as it attracts a fine of about $100.

Pros:

Its literally just a corner desk in the Sears Auto Center so there's not much to review. The employee was nice and efficient.

Cons:

Located in a mall but I wasn't aware of that. I had to call the Avis location when the GPS took me to the mall parking lot. I thought maybe the GPS was wrong. When I called, she informed me that they were located in Sears in the mall. It would be helpful to have that information on the paperwork, but thanks to smartphones, it was just a slight inconvenience.

This Concord NC location was ready right out of the gate. My wife and I were dropped off about 10 minutes early before they opened. It was raining and we were welcome to to sit until they opened at eight. Our agent ,Peter was very polite explained options and got us ready to go expeditiously. Return took a little longer, but still quite efficient

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

Cons:

This was the worst rental car experience that I have EVER had. I a retired military and due to moving around so much I have rented a lot of cars. If you rent a car from this place you will be very disappointed in the service that you receive, that is if you even get service. I was doing a one way rental and booked the car days in advance. When I arrived at the rental car company I was told ... "we don't have a car for you". I informed the person behind the desk I have a conformation from your company that I have a car reserved. I was told I understand but I don't have a car. I ask the person behind the counter what is my next step, he told me to call the Budget company. I called and explained my situation, I was then sent to another budget rental location at the airport which was about 20 miles away. I got to the new place to discover that the reservation was changed to a round trip rental and not the one way I had set up and had conformation for. After a good 30-40 minutes expelling to the person behind the counter, them explaining to her manger 2 times and showing proof that I had conformation from Budget that I had received a car for a authorized one way rental from Budget I was finally given a car. I can never see myself renting from Budget ever again. From the rude person working the desk at the Kannapolis North Carolina store to the agent on the phone that messed up the new reservation I was very disappointed in the service I received and warn anyone looking to rent from Budget in Kannapolis North Carolina PLEASE DO NOT DO IT!!

Nothing

Cons:

I reserved a small suv for pickup at Budget (in a Sears auto place) for pickup at 2 pm on Sat 17 Feb. I arrived at 215 only to find a sign at the desk that they are out but will be back (open ended I later learned). I called the number and found out they closed at 2 but didn't have an suv evendors if they were open. I contacted the closest enterprise and rented with them.
