The city of Raleigh, capital of North Carolina, is the ideal base to set yourself up in the state. Car hire in Raleigh has you positioned half way between the North Carolina coast and the close-by big city of Charlotte.
Nicknamed the 'City of Oaks' after the many streets that are lined with oak trees in the centre of town, hiring a car in Raleigh will give you easy navigation around the typical grid layout of American cities. As one of the country's first planned cities, with the North Carolina State Capitol in the centre, making your way around should be stress-free whilst on your trip.
If you have chance to plan your time in the city ahead of your trip, hiring a car in Raleigh gives you chance to park up before grabbing a seat at the Walnut Creek Amphitheatre. The music venue is outdoors, perfect in good weather! It has seen some top names play there including Coldplay, Black Sabbath and Rod Stewart.
The JC Raulston Arboretum is a perfect nature spot if you need a break from the city; rent a car in Raleigh and head out there to enjoy a perfect picnic. It has no entry fee and is open daily, for an easy but beautiful activity while you're in the city.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
