KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Sumter

  • Sumter is a small city located in the heart of South Carolina. While public transportation options are available in the city, renting a car can offer several advantages to visitors. First, cheap car rentals in Sumter provide flexibility and convenience. With a car, you'll have the freedom to explore the city on your own schedule and at your own pace. You won't have to worry about waiting for buses or trains, and you'll be able to avoid crowded tourist hot spots. Second, Sumter is home to several fantastic outdoor attractions that are best accessed by Sumter car rentals. These include the Swan Lake Iris Gardens and the Poinsett State Park.
  • Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) is located approximately 98 miles from Sumter. The rental car offices at CLT are located on the ground level of the parking garages adjacent to the terminal. There is a shuttle bus service that runs continuously between the terminals and the rental car facility. Columbia Metropolitan Airport (CAE) is located approximately 46 miles from Sumter. The rental car offices at CAE are located at the consolidated rental car facility, which can be reached via a shuttle bus from outside of baggage claim. Florence Regional Airport (FLO) is located approximately 30 miles from Sumter. The rental car offices at FLO are located in the terminal building, which is located directly across from baggage claim. While FLO and CAE are closer, CLT is larger. This means you will have more options for a Sumter car rental at CLT, but will get to driving your car rental in Sumter sooner if you get one from FLO or CAE.
  • When driving cheap car rentals in Sumter, it is important to be aware of your surroundings. One unique sign to look out for is the "No Turn on Red" sign. This means you cannot make a right turn on a red light, so wait for the green light instead. Bicycles are not common, but there are many trucks on the highways, so expect large-vehicle traffic when driving your Sumter car rental.
  • Rush hour traffic in Sumter typically occurs in the morning from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and in the evening from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The most affected roads during rush hour are probably the main ones leading to and from the city center, such as Broad Street and Manning Road. Certain seasons might also present some difficulties for driving cheap car rentals in Sumter. During the winter months between December to February, there is a chance of snow and ice on the roads, which can make driving hazardous. Furthermore, some roads in rural areas can become musky and muddy during wet weather, so it is important to slow down when driving a Sumter car rental in these conditions.
  • Book your car hire in Sumter at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Sumter are around 10% more expensive than other car types, on average

Pros:

Fast drop off, very clean car, and friendliness and competence of staff.

Cons:

Check in was a little bumpy. The main person had an appointment and the person who was suppose to fill in didnt show up to work. I had to wait over an hour, but once he started it was a very quick and seamless process.

Pros:

The door was opened for us just at closing time when personnel could have said "we are closed'. The agent who took back the car rented in Columbia was the same one who rented the next to me. His name is Mr Kelly. He was extremely courteous and helpful.

Cons:

Didn't see where I was told about the 200 deposit. If I had known about the deposit i would have been more prepared

Pros:

The staff was very helpful in the Columbia pick-up location. The car we ended up with was comfortable and ran well. When we encountered problems with the pickup (see other section) the staff was happy to assist me in finding a suitable replacement vehicle.

Cons:

We ran into some difficulties with the pick-up in Columbia. Initially, the gentleman helping me didn't think he had a car in the category I had reserved. He did offer me an upgrade to a pickup, but, as I was driving down the entire East Coast, I didn't want to chance luggage in a pickup. He eventually found a car in my category. When he opened the door, the smell of strawberry air freshener was overwhelming. By the time I got home with the car, I could tell why - there was a definite smell of smoke in the car. I called to get a new car, as I was going to have it for a month and wasn't prepared to drive a car that smelled so strongly. They asked me to drive back in with the car and choose one off their lot. I was offered a smaller car, but my luggage wouldn't fit. He then offered me a car that they were still detailing. We did take that one, but it ended up having had cola or some sticky substance sprayed over much of the interior... Hence my rating on cleanliness.
