KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Beaufort

  • When in Beaufort, one of the best decisions you can make is to rent a car because, with one, you’ll get the opportunity to move from one attraction to another without having to experience stopovers or transfers. Beaufort records thousands of tourists each year primarily because it has something for everyone. Suppose you’re an art and culture enthusiast. With a rental car, you’ll be able to visit attractions such as Parris Island Museum-a 10000-square-foot facility with exhibits of the history of the Port Royal region as well as the history of the United States Marine Corps, Charlesfort – Santa Elena historic site- an archaeological excavation point, Beaufort History Museum-a local history museum situated in an old arsenal, and the Robert Smalls House- the home of a celebrated civil war hero. On the contrary, if you’re an outdoor enthusiast, you’ll be able to visit attractions such as Hunting Island Lighthouse, Spanish Moss Trail, Cypress Wetlands, and Pigeon Point Park.
  • Beaufort is served by Savannah/Hilton Head Airport. If you’d like to rent a car upon arriving at this airport, you’ll be happy to hear that it has on-site locations for Beaufort car rentals such as Alamo, Avis, Hertz, Budget, Enterprise, National, and Thrifty. The counters for these agencies are situated in the airport’s baggage claim area.
  • When driving your car rental in Beaufort, you should adopt defensive driving techniques. These techniques include maintaining a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front, cutting distractions, constantly checking your surroundings, avoiding another vehicle’s blind spot, avoiding unnecessarily changing lanes, and keeping your speed down. Adopting these techniques is essential, given that not all Beaufort motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians adhere to traffic regulations.
  • Most Beaufort residents rely on their cars to move around. This being the case, this city experiences enormous traffic from time to time. Traffic congestion usually occurs from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. When renting your car rental in Beaufort, you should have it installed with a GPS navigation system.  This is because using this system, you’ll be able to know the traffic conditions of the roads in Beaufort.
  • Book your car hire in Beaufort at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate hire cars in Beaufort are around 51% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Confirmed my rental 3 days in advance as I had made a change in time of pick up - not a problem at all. Got to location at appropriate time, paperwork was easy as ever to do, owner went around to get my car - I had been "Upgraded"!!!!!!!! ( I am sure he did not have my original grade there on site = Nissan Rogue.). I was given a Ford Edge = nice! Included was Sirius radio!. Car was great. Could have been cleaned inside a little better, but hard to keep up with all the pine pollen that had started flying around. Thanx for the nice ride Hertz!

Cons:

I was told there was no car available for me and that I could wait to see if they had anything the next day. Then they were shocked i wanted to cancel the reservation. I had planned a cross country trip and needed to leave early in the morning the next day. So I was left scrambling to find another car from another business. Luckily the Budget counter had something for me and they were able to help me out. Now I know to go to Budget instead of Hertz in the future.

Cons:

I made a reservation and specifically asked there was a car available on the phone while speaking to a person, not the computer, but when I arrived to pick my car up there was not a car there!!! When I questioned the attendant, he said there was nothing he could do for me. Consequently, I ended up spending over $100.00 more than I should have because another rental (Hertz) said they only had a van. I believe this should be Alamo'so responsibility. I also believe the attendant could have been much more helpful! He at least could have checked with all the other rental companies to see if there was a cheaper option. I would really like a response!!!

I am 24 so I accept that I needed to pay an extra fee. However, when I booked, I correctly input my age. I was not charged the fee until I actually picked up the car which I found frustrating. Also, there was no cruise control.

Cons:

Huge line. Booked few hours earlier but they had no record of my booking. Had to wait for clerk to call her manager, leave a voice mail, then wait for him to call back in order to get a car. Didn't get the car I wanted. Didn't get a receipt, temporary registration, or any documentation from Alamo or Kayak. Initially told car had a full tank but was only half full. The clerk also told me the insurance I bought through Allianz didn't cover damage to the car despite that being incorrect, then she charged be for Alamo insurance without my consent which I had to call to get a charge back a few days later to correct. Terrible experience.

I travelled 80 miles round trip to pick up a vehicle @ 9 PM that hadn't been returned and there were no other vehicles available for the type I needed. I would have appreciated being contacted before making an unnecessary trip. However, the rep at the counter was very courteous.

My plane was delayed for a couple hours. When I realized this I called the rental office (it took quite some time for them to answer) and told them I would be delayed. They assured me that there would be someone there when I arrived. When I got there the office was closed and I had to wait until the next day to pick up my rental car. The next day they offered no apologies or explanation and still charged me the original amount for the full rental.

There was no cruise control. This was not stated to me at check-in. Yet the agent asked where I am going. I was traveling over 800 miles in 2 days. The agent asked me about other things. The brakes pulled a little. Gas mileage on an small car was not great. There was a refundable $200 deposit that was never told to me before I booked the car. They had my credit card. Why do they hold $200. I am not a new driver. Had better experience with other car rental companies in the past.
