KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Orangeburg

  • Car rentals in Orangeburg offer the advantage of convenient transportation, allowing visitors to explore the city and its surroundings at their own pace. Unlike public buses, which follow fixed routes and departure schedules, a rental car allows you to decide your own preferred travel times and routes to get you to your destination. With a rental car, travelers can easily visit attractions like the Edisto Memorial Gardens, a beautiful park boasting stunning floral sights and walking trails. Additionally, explore the South Carolina State University campus, a university known for rich history, beautiful architecture, and vibrant cultural events.
  • At Charleston International Airport (CHS), several agencies provide convenient options for Orangeburg car rentals. Travelers can find reputable companies such as Hertz, Avis, Enterprise, and Budget all at the airport. The on-site rental-car center at Charleston International Airport (CHS) is conveniently located just beyond the airport terminal. After arriving at CHS, passengers can follow the signs to the baggage-claim area. From there, you'll proceed to the lower level of the terminal and exit through the doors marked "Ground Transportation" or "Rental Cars." Once outside, you can get to the rental-car center on foot, or take the short shuttle ride.
  • Driving behaviors in Orangeburg, SC, are generally relaxed and moderately paced compared to many other larger cities. However, it's important to be aware of local traffic laws and regulations. When driving car rentals in Orangeburg, visitors should familiarize themselves with the specific rental company's policies, including fuel requirements and any restrictions. Additionally, we recommend acquiring a car that has a GPS or map handy to navigate the city. Be cautious and look out for pedestrians, especially in downtown areas and near attractions, when they might not follow street regulations.
  • Using car rentals in Orangeburg, SC may present a few challenges. One difficulty is the morning and evening rush hour, which occurs from 7 am to 9 am and from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm on weekdays. During these times, traffic congestion should be expected on major roads such as US-301, US-601, and John C. Calhoun Drive. Navigating through these congested areas requires patience and careful planning. It's always a good idea to allow extra travel time and consider alternative routes when possible to minimize delays. If you can, you might just avoid driving during rush hour.
  • Book your car hire in Orangeburg at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate hire cars in Orangeburg are around 21% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for renting in Orangeburg?

These types of cars are fuel-efficient, easy to maneuver in traffic, and suitable for parking in urban settings. Additionally, they offer adequate space for passengers and luggage. However, if you plan to explore more rural areas or have specific requirements like extra storage space or greater seating capacity, you may consider renting a larger vehicle, like an SUV or minivan.

  • What’s the speed limit in Orangeburg?

    The speed limits to follow when driving in Orangeburg will change depending on where you are. In residential neighborhoods, the speed limit is 25 mph. On most of the roads downtown or those leading to the city center, as well as the majority of non-residential streets, the speed limit is usually 35 mph. On highways and rural roads, the speed limit can range from 45 to 55 mph, depending on the specific road. Any sign you see on the road is the law, overriding anything else you may have read or heard.

  • What are the best places to park in Orangeburg?

    The Downtown Orangeburg Parking Garage, located on Middleton Street, is one of the places you can reliably find a space to park your car. It'll cost you $1 to $2 per hour to park there. On the other hand, on-street parking is another popular parking option. There are metered on-street parking spaces available throughout the downtown area of Orangeburg, SC. The cost of parking at these meters is typically around $0.50 to $1 per hour, and time limits might vary.

Everyone is strapped for cars these days. Luckily Hertz had a car for me (had a reservation via Kayak). Others coming to the counter late at night were not so lucky. The lot was thin. I reserved a sedan, e.g. Chevy Malibu but received a GMC Acadia. Way too much car, but can't be to picky these days. No agent in the return lot, had to take keys to counter, but it was quick.

On line reservation easy, price was OK. The overall staff were very friendly and helpful. The car was clean and what I had reserved.

Cons:

I had to drive to the airport to pick up the car instead of a oneway rental as I have done in the past. This time they were charging a $75 drop off fee which was something new. Rental went from forty something dollars to over one hundred and twenty plus!!!

The process was simple and they even accommodated a last minute change in drop off location.

Cons:

The price using Kayak was several hundred dollars less which was great, but it bothers me that some people would have paid the Enterprise going rate. Why such a difference?

Pros:

Absolutely nothing about this experience was good.

Cons:

When reserving a specific class of vehicle, try having that type of vehicle available. Completely ruined a trip that I planned a month in advance. I needed a pick up truck, reserved a pick up truck. After calling 10-15 times, to verify the availability, I was able to get someone on the phone. Unfortunately they were not at all helpful, but they did mention that a truck would be due back in on Tuesday.

Cons:

We made the reservation online through kayak. Decided to drive well out of our way to pick up from dollar bc the price was much less. Once we arrived, they racked on $95 bc it was a one way trip! This should have been calculated when making our reservation for what was clearly a one way reservation. Explained this to Dollar rep and they could care less. We were so upset... wasted lots of time and money. Will never rent from dollar or use kayak again.

Pros:

Exactly as expected. The price quoted on the website was exactly what I paid. The car worked fine, was clean and the drop off was hassle free.

Cons:

I didn't know that there would not be an attendant to check me out when I returned the car to the parking space. Luckily, an attendant from a competitor told me there was nobody to check the car and that I should take a picture of the mileage and gas meter so I could show it to the counter attendant at the rental desk who would do the final paperwork.

Pros:

The only positive I can say about Thrifty is that the lady working the counter really did try her best to find me a car.

Cons:

We rented a minivan for a church trip online through Kayak a few days before our departure. When we arrived to the rental company (passengers and all luggage in tow), the Thrifty employee informed me that the car we'd rented was not available, nor were any other minivans. She said that since you don't pay when you reserve, the reservation is not binding. All she had to offer me was a 15-passenger van, which is not covered by our church insurance policy. I was unfortunately unable to rent from Thrifty and had to find a van from another rental company at the very last second, or we would have been unable to go on our trip. I would not recommend this company to anyone.

Pros:

It is hard to list anything they performed well.

Cons:

Their staff is extremely rude. They didn't have the car we reserved. They said it wasn't available and offered us an upgrade for additional cost. We declined their offer. Suddenly, the attendant, whom happens to be the manager, found the car we reserved and indicated it wasn't cleaned because the cleaning staff have left for the day. She informed us that she will get someone to clean the car and to meet them in the lot. We waited for 10 minutes in the cold weather and nobody met us there. We came back in and the manager made us wait another 10-12 minutes while she took care of one customer. Finally, when it was our turn, she wondered why we came back. The car was handed to us extremely filthy. The manager was rude about the whole situation the entire time and never apologized. Never rent from Thrifty or Dollar period at the CAE location.
