How old do you have to be to rent a car in North Carolina?

Will I be able to rent a car in North Carolina if I’m not 25 yet? I know some states make you wait until you’re 25 to rent a car but I’m hoping NC is different.

You’re in luck! In order to rent a car in North Carolina, you’ll need to be at least 21 years old, so you’ll definitely be able to get a rental before age 25.
However, you’ll need to find the right rental agency in order to actually rent the car. While state laws do allow you to rent a car at age 21, many rental companies won’t let anyone under age 25 rent or drive their vehicles. As such, it might still be difficult to find a rental car that’s available to you as someone under 25.
