Although I made a reservation, when I got to the desk they had no record of it and were actually out of cars.Reviewed 20 May 2024

Pricing was alright. Extremely pushy to upsell their insurance and almost made it seem as though if you didnt purchase their insurance that it wouldnt be good enough to rent a vehicle from them. When finally just agreeing to their basic coverage just to get out of there, I asked a lot attendant which vehicle I could take, and they pointed out a specific vehicle (a black hatchback). When i tried to leave with the vehicle, person working at the exit booth acted like I was stealing the vehicle and kept repeating that I can't take this vehicle. After telling them multiple times thats what the lot attendant told me I can take, i reversed the vehicle, put it where they told me. They then said that I could take one of the sedans, then they changed their mind halfway as I was about to start putting stuff in the sedan and told me to take a crappy hyundai sedan.Reviewed 3 May 2024

The lack of available chargers and the threat of charging more if it is not returned fully charged gave me anxiety all weekend. I spent more time occupied with charging than enjoying family time. Never againReviewed 25 Sept 2023

Cons:Don’t prepay with Kayak; our car reeked of cigarette smoke and usb didn’t work but because we prepaid with Kayak Hertz would not refund any of our $. Beware!Reviewed 11 May 2021

Pros:Ease of check outCons:The car class I booked was not available. I could have saved money by booking another class getting the same carReviewed 27 Apr 2021
review fromkayak
Pros:The car (Pacifica minivan) really worked well for our needs as far as size and comfort and got decent mileage. Dropoff was very easy.Cons:The pick up was awful. After a very tiring flight, a packed airport, waiting in line, and trying to breathe in an N95 mask, the agent (who was not wearing her mask properly), kept trying to "upsell" us on a different vehicle. I appreciate the offer to get something larger, and we did. But partly I just agreed to get it so we could all just get out of there. Unrelated, some features to the Pacific like the auto stop/start are just plain dumb and make it hard to use.Reviewed 27 Apr 2021

Pros:Nothing. This was the worst car rental experience I have ever had. I booked the car 6 weeks in advance. When we arrived in Charlotte, we found relatively a long line and no cars awaiting anyone. First, booking through Priceline was deceptive because it dod not include any of the additional taxes, which ended up adding almost $100 to the fee. Then the woman at the counter was deceptive in how she asked about insurance, which added another $100. The additional cost were not explained at all. I only noticed them just before signing the rental agreement, so then entire process had to be redone to eliminate the insurance, but the taxes obviously remained. I had ordered a full size SUV, but after watching one car show up every 10-15 minutes, everyone was just taking whatever showed up, so we ended up with a smaller class car. At that point it was well past midnight and had been there two hours. Our hosts were home waiting for our arrival, so we left and called Dollar the next morning to see if we could get the class of car we ordered. The representative sent me to a Hertz location 30 minutes from where we were staying and assured me there would be an SUV waiting for me. When I arrived, no car was waiting and they weren't sure they had one. They finally "found" a smaller SUV and we took it. We had an appointment in the area which was our reason for traveling to Charlotte and were running short on time, so we didn't have them "freshen it up". The car seemed fine when we got it, but a few minutes after driving a way, we discovered the vehicle smelled like urine. We did not have time to turn around and by the time we arrived back in Charlotte that evening, it was too late and we were too tired to deal with trying to return yet another car, so we drove around the rest of the weekend with the windows open and our face masks on. We will NEVER rent from Dollar or Hertz or through an online service like this again.Cons:We could have been made aware of all additional costs. We should have gotten the car in far less time. We could have gotten the car class we ordered. And when we exchanged the car, availability should have been confirmed with the location, we should have gotten the car class we ordered and we should have received one that did not smell like urine.Reviewed 19 Apr 2021

Top tips for hiring a car from Dollar at Charlotte Douglas Airport

  • Dollar car rentals at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) is open from 6 am until 12 am daily, which is ideal for travelers arriving in the morning or late at night. However, you cannot pick up your vehicle between 12 am and 6 am. Also, make sure to plan enough buffer time between when your flight lands and when the rental center closes in case you are delayed.
  • Those who book a car at Dollar car rentals at Charlotte Douglas Airport (CLT) can browse a wide selection of affordable vehicles offered through KAYAK. Some options include compact SUVs, intermediate SUVs, economy cars, sedans, standard SUVs, pick-up trucks, and minivans. If you’re traveling with up to five people, consider booking a luxury or premium SUV. These vehicles have more comfortable seats than other SUVs and offer premium amenities, including Bluetooth connectivity and USB ports throughout the car. Some of the larger vehicles also include a rearview camera to help the driver back up and park.
  • If saving money is your priority, consider booking the Supplier Choice. This option allows the Dollar location staff to pick your car from what’s available when you arrive. This is a good choice for drivers who don’t have specific car needs or don’t care what kind of vehicle they drive. However, we don’t recommend this option for drivers traveling in a group who need extra space for bags or for customers who only want a fuel-efficient car.

All these cars have four doors and can fit seven people and three medium-sized suitcases. While an all-wheel drive (AWD) car isn’t necessary if you plan to only drive in the city, it’s a smart choice for people who plan to drive in the countryside or on rough roads.
