A Journey for my journey
Pros: Vehicle was relatively clean and smoke free. Comfortable, good extras: gps, keyless ignition. Overall good ride.
Cons: Not the type of vehicle I requested. Was given a Dodge Journey had requested a sub-compact. I did not intend spending much time driving so a bigger vehicle was unnecessary. But, the Journey was all that was available(?). Less than good gas mileage. Overall costs of the rental wasn't bad, but when you add in the taxes, surcharges, airport fees it starts to get exorbitant.

USE A DEBIT CARD AND GET A CREDIT CHECK?!
Pros: I made a reservation to rent a car to drive myself from South Carolina to Boston, Ma. I had a rough week and just needed to get home. I was subject to fraud and had my credit card shut down, so all I had was my debit card. To make a long story short, my credit is bad and was rejected. Not to mention the embarrassment felt in public, I was stranded. I think this policy should be rethought and reworked. I had plenty of money to cover the rental plus any extra hold associated with using a debit card. Your potential customer is now vehemently opposed to ever using your services again. Respectfully, One upset traveler

Easy and quick to rent - Brand new vehicle selections
Pros: We were given an upgrade (with a small cost) for a brand new 2017 Pathfinder. Car literally had 250 miles on it and smelt new. Overall ease to access the rental car area and lot was perfect. Literally walk right at the door at MYR and into the rental car building. Out the side door to a lot full of cars. Easy to get out of the rental car lot and airport. Staff were helpful and pleasant to deal with.
Cons: The only negative with Nissan rentals is the CVT. Not a huge fan of these transmissions.

Okay experience
Pros: The car was pretty nice and very clean
Cons: Website misrepresented where we would be picking up the car. We thought we were picking it up at the actual airport but that wasn't the case. We were charged an additional fee for picking up at the airport instead. The company also kept trying to upcharge for additional insurances etc. which we didn't need. There were long lines and a long wait for both picking up and dropping the car off.

Pros: so easy to change our reservation to a one way drop in another town. a quick phone call and it was done. really helped when we were having so much problems with our RV and needed to get to it somehow.
Cons: car was not very comfortable. not thrifty's fault. just not a comfortable car for long travel.

Wrong rates

Frustrating experience
Pros: The car we finally ended up with was clean.
Cons: We waited in line for more than 40 minutes before we were helped (this was NOT a very long line). We ended up downgrading to a compact car from the small SUV we initially booked because upon arrival at the Myrtle Beach airport, we were told that our booking location was more than 20 miles away which would have required a lengthy and expensive cab fare. The up charges for the "convenience" of this downgrade cost us more than $50 above what we originally believed we were going to pay. The first car we inspected had severely damaged rims that were nearly falling off, plus many scratches and pock marks. No lot staff in sight, so I had to walk from the lot back into the rental building to find someone. They switched us to the car we ended up with, which had several deep scratches in the paint - no way was I going to leave the lot without those scratches being noted on the rental form. So I made another walk back to the building to find someone to look at and note the damage. When we got to our hotel, we discovered that the fob did not work - not a huge deal since we could lock and unlock the doors manually, but an inconvenience. Overall, an exhausting experience.

Worst Rental Experience!!
Pros: Nothing
Cons: We arrived at the airport on time to pick up the rental car. First she told us we were a no show, even though we were 25 minutes early of the elected pick up time, then she said it was booked at a non airport location and could not honor the rates. This was booked on line for airport pick up I explained. She said she didn't know what the problem was but it was what the system showed. So without arguing I asked what she could give us since we were there now. She said the best she could do was 70 dollars higher than what we reserved. She was very non caring, unempathetic and made me feel through the whole process that I was not important and an inconvenience. I finally went to the competitor, Avis, explained the sitiuation and they were glad to give me a nice full size for very close to the original price with Thrifty. I will NEVER use Thrifty car rental again and make sure others don't either if asked.

feeling just a bit scammed on this deal.
Pros: nice clean little car - no problems.
Cons: agent at Thrifty couldn't find any records of my rental - so I gave her my kayak confirmation number, and she determined I was supposed to pick up the car at Thrifty's other location, a mile away from the airport (instead of the airport location) - ended up I had to pay an additional $40 to get a car at the airport location (they called it additional tax) - I blame kayak for this scam, not Thrifty - be sure if you rent a car through kayak, you can pick it up at the airport location, and at the price quoted. personally for me, no more dealings with kayak.

Pros: The brand new Ford F-150 I rented was perfect for my needs. Very clean and comfortable. I was using it to help move a friend from Columbia SC to the Myrtle Beach area.

Excellent customer service
Pros: I rented a car in Myrtle Beach. Unfortunately the cig lighter didn't work in The VW Jetta, so I was unable to charge my cell phone / gps. I ended up having to exchange the car in Fayetville, NC before continuing my journey to NY. I was quickly given another vehicle free of charge. Later on my trip, I realized I had forgotten by Ipad in the Jetta. After calling Alamo In Fayetville, my iPad was safely secured in their safe. They had far exceeded my expectations with me receiving my personal items as well as a value for my money.

Pros: The size of the vehicle was good and the staff was polite.
Cons: To start we requested that we get a rental at the airport but was assigned a car rental offsite which caused an extra cost to get there. Once we were there the car smelled like cigarettes and ran poorly. They did not have another car in that category to rent so we took what was offered. Make sure when you book with kayak that you get what you requested before finalizing the transaction!!!

Nasty, incompetent assistant
Cons: We waited in line to pick up our reservation for an hour while two associates sat in the back chatting and eating. There was a problem with our reservation and the associate had no remorse for basically stranding me. When I asked what my options were, she said "I don't know try somewhere else". If it wasn't for another person in line we overheard, a half hour before, who had the same problem and that associate helping him we would have never been able to leave Myrtle Beach. When we arrived at the new Budget location on a whim, and were successful, we retold our story to that clerk and he actually knew which associate we were speaking about, just from the story we told. So Myrtle Beach Airport Budget, you DEFINITELY need to fire the foreign lady with straight thin red/brown hair and eyebrows drawn on so horribly high they look like black rainbows.

Cons: When I drop the car off they were unable to process my check due to Jacksonville writing the incorrect mileage down before I left. This caused me to have to go inside the building and see an agent. Once I got in the building I only have one customer in front of me. From what I could gather she was there looking for more information on the entire area of Myrtle Beach from restaurants hotels etc. It took at least 30 minutes for them to figure this all out upon checkout.. I am extremely disappointed with budget overall

Pros: Our car, although it had controls for cruise control, did not have this feature installed. For as much driving as we did (from Myrtle Beach to Columbia and back), this was a pain. Good gas mileage, but next time I'll upgrade to something that feels more secure on the highway. It would be nice for them to include a highway map in the glove compartment.

Sent to the WRONG Airport
Pros: 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?!

Pros: We were upgraded to a mini van at no additional cost, car was clean and comfortable
Cons: Didn't know that prepaying for gas would be a bad idea, only used a quarter tank and paid for the whole thing
6.0 Good

Great rental, poor service
Pros: 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!
8.0 Excellent

Top tips for renting a car in Myrtle Beach

  • Looking to pick up a hire car after landing in Myrtle Beach? For travelers with flights to Myrtle Beach International Airport, you will find the hire car desks in the lobby of the main terminal, while the hire 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.
  • Book your rental car in Myrtle Beach at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
