1.9 HorribleOct 5 2021
We were promised a vehicle that I reserved a few months ahead of time as I knew about the shortage of rental vehicles When we arrived after our flight arrived, there were no more vehicles for us to rent, nor was there anything a supervisor could do despite having multiple cars from corporate on the lot. (The young man at the desk said that they were no longer associated with corporate). He called the supervisor only after I repeatedly asked him to do so, and even then, there was nothing they could do, leaving us stranded at the airport unable to get to our final destination that night. They wouldn't comp us for our hotel stay and Uber to get to the hotel, which was booked THAT night (as our Airbnb was about 90 minutes away and we had NO vehicle to get there). Awful experience, awful company. Never again will we book with Hertz. Unprofessional and inexcusable.

Staff were helpful and rental check in/out was quick and easy. No pickup in this location.
1.9 HorribleJul 21 2021
Drove out there to find out they sent a verification of a car that wasn't event. Non apologetic and made me feel like this was somehow my fault. Bad systems=terrible customer service.
2.0 MediocreJul 4 2021
Didn’t end up renting from them because they wouldn’t accept my debit card. I was a local renter and didn’t have return flight info (obviously) so they wouldn’t rent to me. The agent behind the counter was also pretty rude.
4.0 OkayJun 25 2021
The vehicle that I rented and received a confirmation for, was not really available. In fact, they had zero vehicles available and yet their availability on Kayak never changed. Apparently you can’t rely on this website to be current and accurate. Very disappointed.

The car smelled like cigarette smoke and had bad suspension.
8.0 ExcellentJun 16 2021
Renting a van with unlimited mileage for their price was a great deal. The office manager I dealt with was capable and professional.The office closed at 6:00, and I was ready to turn the rental in at 6:30. It would have been nice to have some sort of drop box. As it was, I had to make a separate trip in at 8:00 the next morning.

Two things-a car that was a bit cleaner, and the store open on Saturday for an early return.

Very good service both at pick up and drop off. We were an hour or so late of our scheduled drop off time and there were no problems. I would recommend that you make sure to have the contact information for the LOCAL rental dealer in case of time delays or other issues.

Everything was great! The staff was very respectful and polite.
7.9 GoodAug 19 2021
The car was great. Very clean and a nicer make and model than I was expecting. Staff were courteous, and check-in and return were both quick and easy. A bit pricier than I'd have liked, but I decided to rent the car fairly late, so I expected that to some extent. I did wish they'd been able to give me a ride home, though, as our actual car is in the shop.
5.9 OkayAug 10 2021
I liked the fact that I was still able to pick up a rental car. The customer service could have been more professional. The price of the rental was $225.00 more than the price I agreed to at the time I made the reservation.
6.0 GoodMay 12 2021
I liked being able to book my rental online.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.
10.0 ExcellentJan 4 2020

6.4 GoodSep 13 2018
the return in CLT was fastFirst 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.

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.

The staff was niceChecked 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

It'd be nice if they actually cleaned the car befoThe car was very comfortableThe 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 dirtyCar 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.- 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

The Hyundai Elantra was an excellent car in very good running condition.Pick-up in Greenville was very, very slow. The agent was distracted and inefficient. Rest room was out of commission.

We liked the friendliness of the employees and how they worked as efficiently as they were able to while getting us set up. What wasn't great, though, is that when my fiance and I arrived at the rental place to get our car for our trip, we had to wait for about 30 minutes because there weren't cars available yet at the location. When we arrived after our trip at our return location, we were charged for 3 gallons of gas even though our tank was only one tick below the Full tank mark. Other than these two things the car was clean and worked well and the staff was helpful and patient.

We had to pay a day extra although we returned the car on the date given on the rental agreement.
5.2 OkayJul 25 2019
Car was fine and met our needsWe 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.

Rude and ignorantAfter being extremely stubborn and unhelpful they pointed out the fact that there was an Enterprise across the street from their location.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
The Staff in Greenville were very friendly and courteous.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 hardeThis is reflected through your specific survey topics listed.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.

Good customer serviceThe guy in the front desk was very polite and quick.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!!

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.

Trey was great. Very nice and thorough and you could tell he was a hard worker.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.

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 $77 or less
  • Book your rental car in Greenville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
