KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Greenville

  • A hire car is the perfect way to explore not only Greenville, but also the surrounding region of northern South Carolina. With a car you will be able to freely explore the city’s main attractions, such as Falls Park on the Reedy, located in downtown Greenville's Historic West End. Head to Caesars Head State Park, where you’ll be surrounded by mountains and majestic nature. It’s less than an hour’s drive away and you can make as many scenic stops as you please.
  • All the big car hire agencies, including Alamo, Avis, and Enterprise, can be found at Greenville–Spartanburg International Airport (GSP), which is located in Greer, about 20 minutes northeast of Greenville. The car hire desks are located within the terminal, just across the baggage claim area. If you’re arriving by plane, just follow the Baggage Claim signs. The hire cars are typically parked on the first level of the parking garage.
  • Driving in Greenville is pretty straightforward, as long as you keep an eye out for road signs as well as cyclists, since most areas of the city don’t have a designated bike path. Although the coast of South Carolina is hit the hardest during hurricane and cyclone season (June through November), the rest of the state is also at risk. If you’re driving in those months, make sure to be extra careful when the weather gets wetter.
  • Although traffic is manageable, especially when compared to other big U.S. cities, you’re better off avoiding rush hour traffic both in the morning (between 7:30 and 10 a.m.) and the afternoon (between 4 and 7 p.m.), especially if you don't want to be stuck in traffic for longer than needed. The I-385 gets quite congested during those times, as do other roads such as Memorial Drive, Greenville Boulevard, and Arlington Boulevard.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Greenville for £37 or less
  • Book your car hire in Greenville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate hire cars in Greenville are around 32% cheaper than other car types, on average

Cons:

They didn't have the cargo van I rented. They called day of, saying they wanted to "save me the time" of coming to get it. I asked if they could locate one at another location and they told me I could call around. I did--no luck. I ended up having to rent an actual moving van and pay an extra month for being late. The representative didn't even apologize--just acted like it wasn't his problem. Appalling lack of customer service. :-(

Cons:

Rosie needed a little assistance with my prepaid transaction, the other lady there asked me if I was sure I had money on my card, I pulled up my online banking to show her that I had over 11 thousand dollars available on that card. That statement made me feel a little disrespected.

Pros:

I liked being able to book my rental online.

Cons:

When we arrived to pick up the vehicle, the van that I requested was not available. The van we requested would have had more space for our belongings to fit. The Pathfinder we received was very limited. We also had a price quoted online, and had I not had an issue with it, I would have been charged almost $200 more than I originally agreed to. Even though the pathfinder is a great vehicle, we needed exactly what we requested. Especially since we'd reserved the van at least two to three weeks in advance.

Pros:

the return in CLT was fast

Cons:

First off, KAYAK sent me the WRONG address to pick up the car from so I had to call another Uber to take me to the correct address and was a huge waste of time. Then the pick up process took way too long. I put in my reservation days before with a pickup time and I expected my car to be already separated and ready to go requiring only my signature on some paperwork. They only started to LOOK for a car for me when I arrived. It took 45 MINUTES to pick up the car. It seems that only a small team works at the AVIS and they were all busy.

They no showed me. They were not there at all. They did not answer the phone, or ever return my call or voice mail. It is 5 days later and they have made no attempt to contact me via email or phone. I will add that I already had to use a ride share app from the airport to their location which cost me $35 during rush hour. Because I could not get ahold of anyone, I had to spend another $77 to my destination. I used a live chat which kept resetting and tried to cancel the first and second days of my trip. I actually got a person instead of a bot and they had the nerve to ask what time I would be picking up the car the next day. The need had already passed and I spent more money to get an hour away. Their service is as garbage as their location looks. I don’t recommend them.

Cons:

Car value for the money is bad. Car condition was bad. Door creaks like it's going to fall off when you open. Had 89K miles on it. Headliner was nasty with who knows what all over it. Brakes little spongy. Returned it at 5:30, but because it was an hour later than when I picked it up, you charge me for another 24 hour period! I hurried there thinking I would save some money returning early. Will not rent there again.

Car hire insurance in Greenville

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Greenville car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Greenville.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Greenville car hire.
