Top tips for renting a car in South Carolina

  • Know the terrain in your destination before renting a vehicle in South Carolina. For example, if you’ll be driving in a larger city or near the coast, then a convertible might be ideal to enjoy the southern sun and gentle ocean breeze. If you are visiting a state park, however, you might want to consider renting a four-wheel-drive vehicle, as any off-road conditions you might encounter there could potentially include sandy or swampy terrain. Generally speaking, the roadways in South Carolina are well-maintained, so your driving experience should be an enjoyable one.
  • If you’ll be traveling with children in your rental car, remember that South Carolina driving laws require that all children weighing less than 20 pounds be in rear-facing car seats secured in the back seat. Once a child reaches four years of age, they may transition to a front-facing seat. After age six or once a child reaches 80 pounds, they may use safety or “booster” seats, so long as both the shoulder and lap belts are secured. Children weighing more than 80 pounds may sit normally and use standard seat belts if their legs bend over the edge of the car seat while their backs rest against the back of the seat.
  • Depending on where you will be traveling while in South Carolina, it may be a good idea to make use of gas stations as they come along. For example, while traveling along I-95, or while in a major city like Charleston or Florence, gas stations will be plentiful and convenient. However, if your travel will involve considerably more rural areas or perhaps visiting state parks, etc., you may find that gas stations become less common, and so it would be a prudent plan to fill up your gas tank at each opportunity. Should your car run out of gas in a rural area, it may be more challenging to get help as cell phone coverage may be equally reduced.
