The staff was very friendly and helpful and the return was easy. Thank you. We have used Alamo many times when we come to Myrtle Beach and Florida.Everything was perfect and had a very enjoyable car that was assigned to us. We needed a vehicle to accommodate my golf clubs and luggage which it did. Thank you.

The car broke down and was towed, customer service made me get my own Uber, then when I got there the manager looked like he had no idea why I was there and he took forever to get me my new car, also told me they should have switched a car for me(a lot of good that was since I already came there because the customer service lady told me to). There was no way to reach the airport branch directly, that is wrong!!!!!!!!!If something happens to the car, good luck, terrible customer service.

The car I pick up wasn’t clean, inside & out. There was a smell in the car for a week and finally found previous renter had left take out was in a container underneath passenger front seat. NOT HAPPY ☹️ Last yr found previous car renter left his face mask and paperwork in car. So, I had to sanitize the car myself.

My pickup was very good, the staff was very friendly and it was very quick! The car was fine and there were no problems with it. On my return, i knew they told me that they closed at noon and that no one would be there, but i didn’t feel good about just leaving it and putting the keys in the box. I felt someone should be there to check the car over with me there. I took pictures of the car and the gas tank before i left. I’m not a regular car rental person so I’m just a little nervous. All and all everything went well and the employee i dealt with was extremely nice and knowledgeable.

They closed at noon so we couldn't pick up that day. Then we didn't get the size car we needed so we had to take Uber to the airport to get everyone and the luggage there. Barely any gas was in the car when we got it.

I am a single person traveler and they stuck me in a minivan. She asked if I wanted to buy a full tank of gas without telling me she was giving me a hybrid. The check in process was very long. One staff member for a lot of people. I was lucky enough to be 4th in line but it still took 40 minutes to get on the road. Some of the questions were just bizarre. I’ve never been asked where I work before. The drop off staff was very efficient. That process took less than 5 minutes. There were also more attendants for drop off.

1.9 HorribleAug 14 2021
Worst experience I've ever had and I travel frequently for work. Had to Uber to the rental office. No one was at the desk so stood there for 20 minutes. There was a sign that said call this number for immediate assistance but it just rang and I could hear that it routed to a phone in the back of the empty rental desk. When the lady finally did arrive she informed me my reservation didn't mean anything and they had no cars. I let her know that I had to pay to get there and I had a confirmation. She informed me that is not her problem and took another call while I was standing there. Tried to call corporate but no managers were available. Waste of time, money and frustration. There has to be a class action out there against this disreputable company and it's incompetent staff.

You gave us an F-150. It was the biggest car we’ve ever driven, so it was hard for us to park and maneuver it. We had to be extremely careful so to not ding it as we parked it. It required us to back up and retry everytime we needed to park or make a tight turn.

Car was comfortable. Drop off was easy but we had problems getting the car because our flight was late and they told us that there were no cars available. Eventually they found replacement but we were close to cancelling our reservation.They should not base car availability on arrival time. Flights are late or rescheduled. We came only two hours late and were told that they did not have a car for us because of this.

The staff at pick-up was attentive and hard working, however, not enough experience yet for the crowd. Also, the vehicle confirmed at reservation was not the one at pick-up. Need to take vehicles through simple check-up like windshield wipers. Terrible to find out they are lacking when it's raining. Also, need to warn customers that at 62-65mph and greater, the steering wheel vibrates. Unnerving and dangerous on highways, especially interstates when you have to get out of the way of oncoming tractor trailer convoys or flow of traffic. Probably should have a drop box with fob/dongle to scan and drop off vehicle and print receipt for pre-paid customers so they don't have to walk the length of the terminals twice and drop-offs. Would be even more awesome if that fob/dongle could download gas tank level and add that correct charge to the bill.
1.9 HorribleSep 5 2021
Car smelled of cigarettes and not cleaned but couldn’t get a replacement because of nothing available. Was charged and extra day because the agent didn’t record the car returned until the next day after being dropped off at the after hours drop box.

We landed from Boston to Myrtle beach at 11:44 pm and pick up was so easy woman at the counter was amazing but drop off not so great . We dropped off on a Saturday at 6:30 pm and there were so many people trying to get rental cars from a flight that just landed but budget was still great easy drop off just park and go across the street so easy wound highly recommend but don’t come on a Saturday at 6:30 pm trying to get a car lines way too long at every rental car location just a busy time to fly

It cost more than what I thought it would have, but you got to pay if you want it or need it , so I paid it, because I needed it . The trunk was too small , and I had to have it back earlier than I wanted to , but other than that , the SUV was really a good vehicle . And I’m thankful that y’all made it so easy for me to rent it without a major credit card . Overall I’m a satisfied customer !

After arriving at the Route 501 location in MB, I was informed they did not have the car we reserved and was told to proceed to MBI Airport to exchange the vehicle. I arrived and had to wait about an hour to exchange the vehicle after management spoke to the Route 501 location. I was then assigned a bigger vehicle, which I loved, but the battery was dead. Back to the office to get another vehicle of the same make amd model, but was delayed another 45 minutes. That car had extremely dirty windows, but was otherwise clean. Was a bit disappointed about the overall experience, but understood it wasn't the office personel's fault at the airport.

We had to wait five hours for a car we had reserved weeks ahead of time. Total management failure. At the cost we paid, it should have been delivered to our hotel ahead of time. Hertz is typically a good company...this was a total joke and wasted an entire day om my vacation.

1.9 HorribleSep 5 2021
Hundreds of people waited for 4+ hours for their RESERVED cars but never got them. There weren’t any cars. I was personally left stranded out of town for 3 days with no car until I finally found a car with another company. Hertz & Kayak are taking peoples money KNOWING there are no cars available. Staff at counter said they sold all of the cars during the pandemic. CROOKS.

ONE person at counter who was training somebody else in. Waited in line for over 25 minutes for 2 people with more than 8 people in line behind me by time I got to counter. Zero urgency to get everyone taken care of. Didn’t have my vehicle until a manager appeared from the back and found that they did have a van for us. Wrong return date. Wrong return city. Showed them my confirmation email and was told I’d have to contact those people to get that price!! What?! Never again.

Staff was very friendly at the drop off point. So nice! The gal at pick up was OK. Seemed a little harried - very busy and she was on her own. Both pick up and drop off were easy.We had booked our flight and rented our car back in April. However, our flight changed to a later time( we had no control over that) but I found out if we switched our car to a later drop off time we would have had to pay the price the car was renting for in May because we were modifying are time. I didn't think that was quite fair. We ended up sitting in the airport for about 7 hours.

Flight was delayed. Called to inform Avis I will be later than planned. Told the location would be closed and they would cancel my reservation. If I wanted a car, I could reserve the same car for a shorter time but they had to double the price. Terrible customer service and never picked up a car. Using Uber/Lyft was cheaper than the original price in the end.

Pickup took an hour. We waited in line and gave all the same info we gave online to the counter all over again. Then we waited outside for 30 minutes for the car that we had reserved well in advance to be cleaned. The car was not clean inside or outside. We were in line before another party and we saw them get the car first. Was not the person outside's fault.Cleaner car, shorter wait times, prepared counter staff

Great rental, poor serviceRental itself was great, clean, ran great. Great rental.On pick-up, they said I had booked the wrong location even though my reservation was for the correct location, which I showed them. The person ahead of me in line had the same problem. Also, when I dropped off the rental they tried to charge a weekly rate even though I had spoken with the agent at pick up about converting it back over to a daily rate after the rental was up (which was reflected in my contract). Although a manager corrected the problem after I showed her proof, the initial agent was incompetent and did not know what he was doing. The manager had to show him twice. Also, the parking attendant was rude at drop off until he realized that I was correct. Would probably not use national through kayak again- too much of a hassle when you are traveling!

Sent to the WRONG AirportI like that I got a free upgrade and a reduced rate from the woman working the desk at Myrtle Beach International Airport. I presented her with my paperwork and the airport was the WRONG airport in Myrtle Beach (the private airport - Not MYR which is the airport code for the International Airport). The whole booking had to be cancelled, the insurance had to be cancelled and everything had to be rebooked.That the airport code for Myrtle Beach (MYR) is the incorrect booking code to get a car rental! Who came up with that idea?!

Car hire excess insurance in Myrtle Beach

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Myrtle Beach car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Myrtle Beach.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Myrtle Beach car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Myrtle Beach

  • Looking to pick up a hire car after landing in Myrtle Beach? For travelers with flights to Myrtle Beach International Airport, you will find the hire car desks in the lobby of the main terminal, while the hire car lots are just adjacent to the airport.
  • Rainy season lasts from June to November, so drivers unused to strong rainstorms may want to be cautious if they are on the road during a storm. In general, the weather is not too much of a problem, but there is the occasional tropical storm that does come through. During such storms, it is best to wait out the weather because hydroplaning can be a worry.
  • Want to make the most out of your time in Myrtle Beach? Then make sure to rent a car. Myrtle Beach, like many cities in the U.S., was designed with cars in mind. While there is a trolley in the city, if you plan on visiting anything outside of the downtown core, you will need a vehicle. For instance, if you plan on taking a trip to some of the neighboring beaches like North Myrtle Beach, it is just a simple drive away -- assuming you’ve rented a car.
  • Myrtle Beach, though not the largest of cities, certainly has its fair share of traffic woes. Luckily for drivers, these traffic problems are largely confined to two primary rush hours in the morning and afternoon: from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. During those hours, the 501 in particular can become backed up and congested, as it runs through the center of Myrtle Beach and is one of the major outlets of the city.
  • Book your car hire in Myrtle Beach at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard car hires in Myrtle Beach are around 43% cheaper than other car types, on average
