KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Bluffton

  • Car rentals in Bluffton offer a number of advantages for travelers. Renting a car gives you the flexibility to explore Bluffton at your own pace. You can sightsee at your leisure and make stops along the way without having to rely on public transportation. Second, renting a car can often be cheaper than taking a taxi or using other forms of transportation. Bluffton car rentals provide convenience for door to door service and are a great option for those who do not want to deal with the hassle of public transportation.
  • Car rentals in Bluffton have an office outside the main terminal on 120 Beach City Rd at Hilton Head Island Airport. At the Charleston airport in Bluffton, car rentals are located at the baggage claim section. The major car rental companies have counters near the exit of the baggage claim area. Car rental companies represented at both airports include Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Hertz, and National. Car rentals must be returned to the same location where they were rented.
  • Car rentals in Bluffton require you to be 21 years of age and have a valid driver's license. You should also be aware of the local traffic laws. Car rentals in Bluffton typically include a surcharge for those below 25 years of age. Bluffton has narrow winding roads and can be congested at times.  It is always best to familiarize yourself with the route you will be taking before driving.
  • During the winter months, Bluffton experiences heavy snowfall and icy conditions. Driving can be dangerous during these times and it is important to take extra care when behind the wheel. The town also experiences windy conditions during the winter, which can make driving even more challenging. Summers are generally very hot and oppressive, making driving less enjoyable. However, the town is located in a beautiful part of the country and there are plenty of scenic routes to take advantage of when the weather is more cooperative.
  • Book your car hire in Bluffton at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Bluffton are around 11% cheaper than other car types, on average

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.

Pros:

Diane from the airport Savannah/Hilton Head was awesome! She helped me figure out an option when I realized that I reserved the rental car through the wrong airport. She helped me remain calm and found us a minivan that would accommodate my large family & our luggage.

Cons:

Unfortunately, I learned that if you accidentally order a car and pay in advance..and accidentally book the wrong airport (there are 2 Hilton head labeled airports), you cannot transfer any of the prepaid car to the new location. I paid in full for 5 days and Hertz said it's a locked in deal so they wouldn't honor even a discount. So, I had to pay for 2 vehicles on my trip. Completely, not cool.

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.

Car ready when I arrive. Quick return.

Cons:

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.
