Car rental insurance in Myrtle Beach

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Myrtle Beach car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Myrtle Beach.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Myrtle Beach car rental.

2.0 MediocreJul 5 2021
Cons: I was tricked into thinking that the rental office was at the airport. That end up costing me more money
2.0 MediocreJul 3 2021
Pros: The make and the model of the car were what I expected. The representative who checked me in was great.Cons: I had a delayed flight and called many many times to coordinate a new pickup time. However, I was put on hold every time and the automated system would eventually tell me they could not connect me and then end the call. I was never able to connect with anyone at the branch location. When I finally picked up the car the next day, it smelled like smoke.
2.0 MediocreJun 21 2021

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.

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.

Cons: More.help and better trained help. Even though I realized they were short handed, rhe team moved very slowly. Our line didn't move significantly for 1 hour. We Ubered to ehe hotel instead and I came back at 9 pm to get the car. One person in front of me and still took 50 minutes.
10.0 ExcellentJun 22 2021
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 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!

5.2 OkayJul 18 2017
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?!
6.4 GoodJul 2 2017
Quick returnPros: They make the return process quick and easy, the attendants are always really friendly.Cons: None
