10.0 ExcellentSep 6 2020
Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful and the return was easy. Thank you. We have used Alamo many times when we come to Myrtle Beach and Florida.Cons: Everything was perfect and had a very enjoyable car that was assigned to us. We needed a vehicle to accommodate my golf clubs and luggage which it did. Thank you.
6.0 GoodAug 31 2020
Pros: The car broke down and was towed, customer service made me get my own Uber, then when I got there the manager looked like he had no idea why I was there and he took forever to get me my new car, also told me they should have switched a car for me(a lot of good that was since I already came there because the customer service lady told me to). There was no way to reach the airport branch directly, that is wrong!!!!!!!!!Cons: If something happens to the car, good luck, terrible customer service.

2.0 MediocreJun 10 2021
Pros: Drop off was a breeze.Cons: Pick up was a total nightmare. Hertz was the only counter with a line and it took us longer to get our car than it did to fly from MKE to Myrtle Beach. There was one very slow agent who was refusing to help a customer in front of us that leas to the police being called. When we got to the counter although the was nice at first his demeanor changed when my husband asked why this process takes so long. At that point he said he would “have no problem canceling our reservation…. And that he had been doing it all day” I plan to contact hertz about this situation…. His customer service was being poor. It almost felt as though he enjoyed making people wait. Sounds crazy, but true.
8.0 ExcellentJun 4 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly.
8.0 ExcellentMay 30 2021
Cons: The car I ordered was not available. I was told I would receive a $ 200 credit the next time I rent. I have not received the credit yet
10.0 ExcellentMay 26 2021
Pros: Friendly staff; dependable car
10.0 ExcellentMay 21 2021
Pros: Staff was very friendlyCons: Car was not washed
8.0 ExcellentMay 18 2021
Pros: The car was in good condition except for the cigarette smell from the previous renters.Cons: Difficulty accessing anyone by phone; hard to find contact information and difficulty actually getting someone to speak with on the phone, but once I was able to, I was satisfied.
10.0 ExcellentMay 10 2021
Pros: Car was clean and ran well. Easy check out and check in. Rental is directly across from baggage across a small walkway. We got our luggage, rolled it across the walkway, and were quickly on our way!
4.0 OkayMay 9 2021
Pros: Staff person at pickup was pleasant and polite, although the wait was fairly long(45 minutes).Cons: The car was dirty, including the interior seats. Waits upon pickup and return were unreasonably long. For the money they are making per car and the number of cars they are renting, they are understaffed by about 3 car cleaners and jockeys. I’ve rented hundreds of cars in the past 20 years and have never had to take a car to the car wash after picking it up. Would never go back to that rental shop again! Also, the manager should come and help out, instead of sneaking by to hide in the back room
10.0 ExcellentMay 4 2021
Pros: Yes it was. They could use more help at the office. They were working their butt's off. But the help gave us great service.Cons: More staffing. But the existing help did a great job!
8.0 ExcellentMay 2 2021
Pros: My wife mentioned when we got in the car he wasn't too friendly. The car need a car wash . The lady I called said I could drop it off at the airport with no extra charge. Good thing your employee mentioned it was $450 extra to drop it off there . I would have been one extremely PO customer if I did .

4.0 OkayMay 25 2021
Pros: YesCons: Reserved car got there had to wait over booked had to wait for car then no car gave me a truck no way to get in no running boards. Then my husband 72 who had hips replaced had to get step stool and then no cover on pick up bed for belongings. I told the lady no pickup. Not happy traveling could not even see over hood . would like a refund.
10.0 ExcellentNov 3 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly. Pickup and drop off was super easy.
7.2 GoodSep 22 2020
Cons: You gave us an F-150. It was the biggest car we’ve ever driven, so it was hard for us to park and maneuver it. We had to be extremely careful so to not ding it as we parked it. It required us to back up and retry everytime we needed to park or make a tight turn.
10.0 ExcellentSep 21 2020
Pros: staff was super wonderful and fast and friendly.. Car was way over what I expected.. Extremely clean.. cleaner than clean.. super fast in AND out.. return was ridiculously fast and courteous.. Great $$ value
6.0 GoodSep 16 2020
Pros: Car was comfortable. Drop off was easy but we had problems getting the car because our flight was late and they told us that there were no cars available. Eventually they found replacement but we were close to cancelling our reservation.Cons: They should not base car availability on arrival time. Flights are late or rescheduled. We came only two hours late and were told that they did not have a car for us because of this.
2.4 MediocreAug 19 2020
Pros: Honestly didnt like anything about our experience from the car to the staff. Overall unprofessional. My spouse and I rented a vehicle in early June to travel from SC to NJ and back. A couple of hours into our trip a huge roach, the kind that fly was crawling on my foot. I freaked out and this could of potentially been dangerous, good thing I wasn't driving. That made us worry about our luggage in the trunk as we didnt want roaches infesting our belongings. On our way up to New Jersey there was no way for us to pay cash for our tolls due to covid and we were forced to go through the EZ Pass. We immediately call Thrifty to notify them and were told we'd have to pay the tolls online for every state we went through a toll. When we tried to pay online through the state,we didnt have an invoice number that was require to pay the toll. That we needed from thrifty. We called thrifty again only to have our account noted. Now several months later we're being charged $90.00 in toll and penalty. When I called again to speak to the Manager Jessica I was given an attitude over the phone and was told that it was my responsibility to pay the tolls despite our multiple attempts to make the payment, which now include a penalty fee. I was also hung up on and when I called back and asked to speak to the Manager Jessica again I was sidelined. I travel to NJ once a month for work, we rent vehicles and fly often. This by far has been my worst experience ever dealing with any kind of customer service agents.Cons: Dealing with a competent manager.
4.4 OkayAug 8 2020
Pros: YesCons: Car was very dirty inside. Seats were stained and sand on floor. Outside had a lot of scratches.
9.6 ExcellentJul 27 2020
Pros: The staff at pick up and return were amazing, super friendly and accomodatingCons: Speed of picking up the vehicle, there was only 1 person in front of me and it still took over 15 mins. to get to the counter. BUT once I got there it was very fast.
2.0 MediocreJul 25 2020
Cons: Front desk person on the day of arrival was rude as could be. My ID was having trouble scanning but She did not work towards a solution, basically telling me to f#%^ off, leaving me without a rental car for the entire week. Was not a fun week.

10.0 ExcellentFeb 16 2021
Pros: Staff was friendly and tried to solve problemCons: Reserved a 12 passenger van, when we got there, we were told they didn’t have one. They said that they tried calling, I didn’t get a call, text or email. We then had to rent two vehicles that cost much more.
7.6 GoodOct 26 2020
Pros: Staff was helpful but not particularly friendly. But I got the car quickly.
10.0 ExcellentAug 3 2020
Pros: Desk representative was super!Cons: Unfortunately the additional insurance purchased on the website, would require a $500 fee with Enterprise, if I had had to file an accident claim. It was NOT Enterprise's own insurance policy. Very misleading/deceptive of your website. Won't do that agin!

9.2 ExcellentMay 27 2020
Pros: Drop-off was super easy, car was great, great priceCons: Wanted to extend my rental but could not get in contact with the right people to extend it. Spoke with someone who took my information and said that the enterprise where my drop-off was scheduled would contact me about extending. She said they would email me but I never heard from them so I just dropped the car off without extending my rental. Was very hard to speak to an actual person about the car instead of just an automated message.
9.2 ExcellentSep 18 2019
Pros: The check in at Myrtle Beach was quick and efficient, Doug was excellent and the car was in great condition. Unfortunately the hurricane interrupted our vacation but the ability to change return locations without additional charge made it possible for my family to get home safely. Thank you to Doug.Cons: The staff in Cleveland were unable to help me with the issues on the final amount due, but Doug from Myrtle Beach called and resolved the issue in a matter of minutes as well as sending a confirmation email within minutes! Definitely the perfect employee.

2.0 MediocreJun 17 2021
Pros: When I finally reached the counter The staff was friendly and helpful.Cons: Waited in line for 3 hours!! They initially had two people at the counter then it went to three then it went to four people. The line was wrapped around inside. Not one person came out to a line to say sorry for the inconvenience or apologized for how long it was taking no one was acknowledged. I was traveling with eight minors and two babies it was extremely difficult.
10.0 ExcellentJun 14 2021
Pros: Staff was very friendly at the drop off point. So nice! The gal at pick up was OK. Seemed a little harried - very busy and she was on her own. Both pick up and drop off were easy.Cons: We had booked our flight and rented our car back in April. However, our flight changed to a later time( we had no control over that) but I found out if we switched our car to a later drop off time we would have had to pay the price the car was renting for in May because we were modifying are time. I didn't think that was quite fair. We ended up sitting in the airport for about 7 hours.
10.0 ExcellentApr 30 2021
Cons: I think there had been a smoker in the car and we could still smell it.
2.0 MediocreMar 29 2021
Cons: Flight was delayed. Called to inform Avis I will be later than planned. Told the location would be closed and they would cancel my reservation. If I wanted a car, I could reserve the same car for a shorter time but they had to double the price. Terrible customer service and never picked up a car. Using Uber/Lyft was cheaper than the original price in the end.
8.0 ExcellentDec 2 2020
Pros: Clerk was curtious and patient with each customer. Car was great.Cons: Have more staff on the weekend after Thanksgiving. I was number 5 of 6 people waiting in line with one clerk.
4.4 OkayJun 22 2020
Pros: Pickup took an hour. We waited in line and gave all the same info we gave online to the counter all over again. Then we waited outside for 30 minutes for the car that we had reserved well in advance to be cleaned. The car was not clean inside or outside. We were in line before another party and we saw them get the car first. Was not the person outside's fault.Cons: Cleaner car, shorter wait times, prepared counter staff

Great friendly staff at Myrtle Beach AirportPros: Drop off in Myrtle Beach was much better than pickup (Orlando); Employees at Myrtle Beach airport were very nice, friendly and professional; overall, the return process was excellent.Cons: It is a small airport so smaller operations; Indications for returns are clearly indicated to get there but once on parking lot, they have only 2 parking spots dedicated to returns, took me a few minutes to actually find the correct spots and employees in charge
6.4 GoodApr 9 2018
Car Rental ExperiencePros: I liked the price. The car met our needs. I was glad we were able to drop the car off at Avis Rental Myrtle Beach International Airport., though this was only for the fact that our flight left at 11:00 a.m. and the Sears/Avis did not open till 10:00 a.m., which would not have given us enough time to make our flight. I did like the fact that it was a very fuel efficient car.Cons: I did not like that I was not informed that the car was not available for pickup at the Myrtle Beach International Airport, SC, and that we had to take a cab to the Sears Auto Store/Avis Rental to pick up our rental vehicle. I didn't like the fact that a shuttle service was not provided for picking up our car from Sears in Myrtle Beach, SC, and we had to pay $12.50 cab fare plus a tip for the short ride there. I did not like the fact that even though the car was a No Smoking vehicle, the car smelled like someone had smoked in it.

10.0 ExcellentSep 27 2020
Pros: The simplicity of the whole transaction from searching to dropping off vehicle.Cons: Everything seems up to par to me!
2.8 MediocreNov 3 2019
Pros: The manager was friendlyCons: Apparently, you need a really good credit score to rent from them. Starting with the check out lady, who refused to rent to me since I didn’t have a credit card, and I asked for her manager- after, he came out and said I could totally rent with just my debit card since I had a return flight, which the woman didn’t even bother asking- she just flat out refused to rent to me. Everything was fine until they ran a credit check or something and said my Equifax score was too low to rent from them. If that is their policy, that’s fine, but I wish I had known or it had been posted somewhere. I ended up going to another rental company and rented from them no issue of debit card or rental score. As soon as I told the clerk at the company I went with that I only had a debit card, the first thing he asked was “do you have a return flight?”...instead of flat-out refusing to rent to me like the first one. Not a great experience. Again, I understand their policy, but some advanced warning would have been nice so that I could have made other arrangements. I know my credit score and wouldn’t have even wasted my time with Budget had I known this.

Great rental, poor servicePros: Rental itself was great, clean, ran great. Great rental.Cons: On pick-up, they said I had booked the wrong location even though my reservation was for the correct location, which I showed them. The person ahead of me in line had the same problem. Also, when I dropped off the rental they tried to charge a weekly rate even though I had spoken with the agent at pick up about converting it back over to a daily rate after the rental was up (which was reflected in my contract). Although a manager corrected the problem after I showed her proof, the initial agent was incompetent and did not know what he was doing. The manager had to show him twice. Also, the parking attendant was rude at drop off until he realized that I was correct. Would probably not use national through kayak again- too much of a hassle when you are traveling!

Sent to the WRONG AirportPros: I like that I got a free upgrade and a reduced rate from the woman working the desk at Myrtle Beach International Airport. I presented her with my paperwork and the airport was the WRONG airport in Myrtle Beach (the private airport - Not MYR which is the airport code for the International Airport). The whole booking had to be cancelled, the insurance had to be cancelled and everything had to be rebooked.Cons: That the airport code for Myrtle Beach (MYR) is the incorrect booking code to get a car rental! Who came up with that idea?!

Quick returnPros: They make the return process quick and easy, the attendants are always really friendly.Cons: None

Top tips for renting a car in Myrtle Beach

  • Looking to pick up a rental car after landing in Myrtle Beach? For travelers with flights to Myrtle Beach International Airport, you will find the rental car desks in the lobby of the main terminal, while the rental car lots are just adjacent to the airport.
  • Rainy season lasts from June to November, so drivers unused to strong rainstorms may want to be cautious if they are on the road during a storm. In general, the weather is not too much of a problem, but there is the occasional tropical storm that does come through. During such storms, it is best to wait out the weather because hydroplaning can be a worry.
  • Want to make the most out of your time in Myrtle Beach? Then make sure to rent a car. Myrtle Beach, like many cities in the U.S., was designed with cars in mind. While there is a trolley in the city, if you plan on visiting anything outside of the downtown core, you will need a vehicle. For instance, if you plan on taking a trip to some of the neighboring beaches like North Myrtle Beach, it is just a simple drive away -- assuming you’ve rented a car.
  • Myrtle Beach, though not the largest of cities, certainly has its fair share of traffic woes. Luckily for drivers, these traffic problems are largely confined to two primary rush hours in the morning and afternoon: from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. During those hours, the 501 in particular can become backed up and congested, as it runs through the center of Myrtle Beach and is one of the major outlets of the city.
