8.0 ExcellentApr 13 2021
Cons: Two things-a car that was a bit cleaner, and the store open on Saturday for an early return.
2.0 MediocreApr 11 2021
Pros: They did not have a car for us at all!!!! NothingCons: Don’t take money for cars that you do not have
2.0 MediocreMar 8 2021
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. :-(
6.0 GoodFeb 13 2021
Cons: The car smelled offensively of excessive air freshener as if the smell of cigarette smoke was being masked. The air freshener was so powerful that my cloths and belongings would smell like it hours after getting out of the car. My jacket still smells a day later!
8.4 ExcellentSep 29 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly great with walk around and pics, so happy when they do this!Cons: Um the cleaner they used at the time did not detail the car so when we dropped something on tee floor moved mat found glass
9.6 ExcellentAug 14 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful. Very convenient transaction.Cons: Wasn't aware there would be an additional $200 deposit required! It may have been somewhere in the fine print, but I was surprised with it when I picked up the van. Had i known, i would have probably chosen a different provider. I've rented many times from others and have not had to pay a deposit! That is a negative in my book.
2.0 MediocreMar 17 2020
Pros: The staff was not friendly at all. The older lady was extremely rude and not accommodating at all.Cons: I should have just rented from enterprise like I always do.
2.0 MediocreDec 14 2019
Pros: NothingCons: I didn't get rent the car. They wouldn't run my credit card again. The card was ran before I knew how much it was going to be, therefore it was declined. Good thing I had a back up plan or I would of been homeless.
4.8 OkayDec 3 2019
Pros: 7 passenger van was easy to drive & blind spot aids were A+. Vehicle was very clean. Owner's overview manual was in glove compartment!!!!! Lots of controls on steering wheel and in unusual places, so manual was helpful.Cons: The van was delivered 5 hours late! This was a major problem as we had to pick up additional drivers an hour away - their local office had closed, the airport counter could not add them, so we had to take a detour to find an office to add them. And we were not advised the extra fee was $13.95 per day per drier! 2 rear seatbelts did not buckle & one 2nd row seat did not adjust back making for an uncomfortable & less safe ride.
10.0 ExcellentSep 10 2019
Pros: I changed my arrival time to a small airport from noon to midnight and the office remained open until my flight arrived and I picked up my baggage. I think it was last flight of the evening for the airport and the desk stayed open beyond normal closing time.Cons: I thought upcharge for second driver was somewhat steep.

10.0 ExcellentJan 4 2020
Pros: Staff was very helpful and have the paperwork and everything done quickly because I was in a rush.Cons: Airport parking could have been better for to drop off but it was pretty busy
10.0 ExcellentJul 12 2019
Pros: Easy rental process. Polite agent. Clean, comfortable car. I will rent from this agency again !
6.4 GoodSep 13 2018
Pros: the return in CLT was fastCons: 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.
2.0 MediocreNov 7 2016
Cons: Didn't have promised car or one like it. Price was changed (higher). Insurance sold though kayak was not accepted by rental car company. Huge waste of time and a bigger inconvenience.
10.0 ExcellentOct 30 2016
Wonderful!Pros: Car was SO clean- seemed brand new! Very easy to pick up and drop off. Very friendly service!

Pros: Staff was awful
4.0 OkayMar 3 2019
Pros: The staff was niceCons: Checked the availability online before I made my plans and booking. They said they had a truck...didn’t get my car until almost 2 hours after my reservation and it wasnt even a truck. They should have given us a deal for our troubles but instead it was more of a oh well this is what you get attitude
10.0 ExcellentFeb 2 2019

10.0 ExcellentSep 14 2018

Had a great time.Pros: Vehicle was awesome.Cons: Great fuel economy .
6.4 GoodMar 20 2017
It'd be nice if they actually cleaned the car befoPros: The car was very comfortableCons: The car was only superficially clean. Anything that wasn't easily accessible, like the cup holders and storage compartments was filthy. Also, the car wasn't in great mechanical shape; warning message that it needed an oil change showed up. Also, car appeared to have a questionable fuel injector; acceleration would stutter at times.
8.0 ExcellentNov 11 2016
Courteous and friendly staff but car was dirtyPros: Car had no fuel when I picked it up but the staff refueled it for me and allowed me to return it without filling it back up. When I noticed the pet hair I called the rental location to advised them and they placed a note in the rental agreement that I would not be responsible. No hassles upon returning the car despite the 2 snags when I picked it up. Staff was very courteous.Cons: - When I went to pick up the car it had no fuel. - Signs on the counter saying that there will be a $150 fine if the car is found to have pet hair or ashes. after getting home and folding the back seats down to pack the car, pet hair all over the floor. - car was generally not very clean on the inside (outside was very clean).
4.4 OkaySep 28 2016
Would not rent vehicleCons: Policy did not allow me to rent the vehicle bc I was from another state.
7.2 GoodSep 28 2016

5.2 OkayJul 25 2019
Pros: Car was fine and met our needsCons: We had searched for pick-up from Greenville Spartanburg airport but the booking we received received required us to pick-up in town. When we picked up the car from the airport, it was $163 more expensive. The person at the desk was unwilling to do anything to assist and the city office was closed.
10.0 ExcellentOct 10 2018
Pros: Liked the VW Bettle!
2.0 MediocreMar 26 2018
Pros: The option to rent a decent full-size SUV, Chevy Tahoe.Cons: They didn't actually have the SUV I reserved, so I cancelled the reservation and won't do business with them again.
2.0 MediocreJan 6 2018
Rude and ignorantPros: After being extremely stubborn and unhelpful they pointed out the fact that there was an Enterprise across the street from their location.Cons: Customer service and the fact that they were offended that I used a third party site to book a rental. Rude and unhelpful will never use budget ever again.
6.4 GoodMay 11 2017
Pros: The Staff in Greenville were very friendly and courteous.Cons: The car had been used by a smoker and reeked of old cigarette smell. The interior was a little tired and at $95.00 for one days use, it was too expensive.
7.6 GoodJan 12 2017
Car needed work done to it that made my trip hardePros: This is reflected through your specific survey topics listed.Cons: The wiper fluid was not only empty but didn't work when it was filled & with snowy/wet road conditions I had to pull over every few miles to clean my windshield. The "get your oil changed soon" notification was also on when I got my car... yes, the interior of the car was comfortable, but these nags didn't make for smooth sailing... it was disappointing.
9.2 ExcellentApr 27 2016
Short but sweetPros: Almost new car.Cons: Took a while to get the car at budge t.
8.0 ExcellentMar 25 2016
Good customer servicePros: The guy in the front desk was very polite and quick.Cons: I didn't like the economy car it was very uncomfortable for a long drive. (Ford Fiesta) I was going to be late like 30 minutes for the drop off so i called customer service and the total price went from $67 to like $104. Wow shocker really expensive, I could've got another day!!

Top tips for renting a car in Greenville

  • A rental 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 rental 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 rental 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 rental 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 rental cars in Greenville for $34 or less
  • Book your rental car in Greenville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Greenville are around 1% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Compact rental cars in Greenville are around 55% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • The speed limit within the city is usually 35 miles per hour (mph), but it may be as low as 30 mph in certain residential areas, so look out for posted signs.

  • The average gas prices in Greenville are approximately $1.92 per gallon. Lower prices can range anywhere between $1.75 and $1.80 per gallon. Try to fill up the tank early in the morning or late in the evening, and avoid doing so on the weekends or on Thursdays and Fridays before long weekends to escape the crowds.

  • Street parking is plentiful in Greenville, and the city offers many parking facilities that are usually close to the main attractions and shopping spots. The City offers the first hour of parking for free in any of their garages, and drivers must pay $1.50 to park for the second hour and then $1 per hour afterwards, with a maximum of $7.50. Washington Street parking deck offers cheaper rates as well.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car. Find tips and insights for how to book your rental, what car rental insurance you’ll need, how to deal with a car rental agency and what extra fees to expect (and avoid!).
