I'm not sure I know of one unless you get a limo or a cab to take you. Asheville has an airport and you can fly there also.

I would suggest changing your flight to land at AVL (I know Delta lands there). Or, as mentioned, ride a Greyhound bus. A cab, if you got one to agree to drive you there, will be in the hundreds of dollars...whereas you could get a cab or ride the city bus to the greyhound station downtown Charlotte and get a ticket there for maybe $40 or so. Not sure of their routes or schedules though.

I have searched that the price of a flight to Asheville is $378...that's tooo much for us....

We actually prefer a cab or a car, but don't know if is there any driver could take us.....plus I am afraid one car can't put 2 people+6 luggages

We have though about the Gray hound, but it would take 6+hours to Asheville......really long enough!

but thanks sooooo much for your advice~~and above all buddy too.....

Default Check Out Renting....

Have you looked into renting a car and driving. Its an easy drive and not that long. I just did something similar and it was about 70/80 dollars.
Good Luck

Don't bother flying to Asheville the ticket prices there are outrageous. You can try flying into Greenville SC. It is actually closer than Charlotte.

I don't think he can rent a car if he's a student. They usually don't let you under age 25.

Some places will let you rent under 25, but over 21...for an additional fee. Sometimes, your school even gets a discount too. the only problem is that it sounds like the poster is driving there for a few months, not returning to CLT for a while. They do one-way rentals, but you'll pay more for it.

Wish I was headed over there when they were heading in. I'd give 'em a ride for the cost of gas!
