KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Greenville

  • If you are traveling with kids, try the SUV Greenville car rentals that have enough space for people and luggage. Don’t drive Greenville cheap car rentals along the left lane on highways. The left lane is used for an upcoming left turn or passing purposes. Furthermore, when your windshield wipers are on, ensure your headlights are on. The State laws don’t allow you to text when driving. Oddly enough, the laws do not prohibit wearing earphones when driving car rentals in Greenville.
  • Drinking and driving are not allowed for drivers with a blood-alcohol content of 0.08% or higher. We always advise against driving car rentals in Greenville when under the influence. Please leave the Greenville car rental behind. When driving car rentals in Greenville, make sure you get familiar with the major roads and the metropolitan area. Always make sure you check out the navigation applications before you go to a destination. If you are caught up in the rush hour traffic, book the compact or economy car rentals in Greenville, they are small enough to maneuver the traffic and get you to your destination faster.
  • Book an SUV car rental in Greenville for a road trip with your loved ones. You and your loved ones will have enough legroom and cargo space to picnic, reconnect with nature, and unwind at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Alternatively, you can travel in style by booking a convertible car rental in Greenville and enjoy the scenery as you cruise through the area. If you are coming from the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport, it will take you less than an hour to drive into town. The I-385 route will take you directly to the heart of Greenville. Additionally, the parking is affordable in the downtown area. Some parking garages offer free parking for the first hour, while others are free on the weekends and after hours.
  • 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.

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. :-(

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.

Staff was very kind and helpful, pickup and return very easy. What surprised me was that at my reservation the estimated costs were $363.03, but when I picked up the car it was $724.37 and I don‘t exactly know why they were doubled. It would be fair if your offer listed the full charges. So unfortunately I can‘t recommend Kayak/Avis after this experience. Yours Dieter

During the rental period the car I was driving was recalled by ford. My experience with the competency of the road side assistance company (Urgent.ly) was horrific! The competency of the Urgent.ly staff and the communication with the rental was terrible. The short story is it took more than 6 days to coordinate a swap of vehicles and in the end I was the one who provided a solution. Not sure what I would have done if I was stranded with a broken down car.

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.

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.
