Decent car rental, poor service.
Pros: The car itself was pretty clean, ran great, had everything it was supposed to.
Cons: The staff did not show up to the store till almost 30 minutes past opening time, and I had issues with checking out the car. Had to wait another 15 because the manager wasn't there till 45 minutes after opening, and then had to be asked out of the back to deal with me, even though he had been phoned with the issue and knew we were waiting on him. There were no apologies, nothing. They weren't necessarily rude, but there was no effort to make things better or to acknowledge that somehow with 2 employees and a manager on site, somehow none of the three could be bothered to be there on time. I was over an hour late leaving for my business trip because of this.

Hertz was good - Kayak screwed me with the price
Pros: Hertz did a good job with what they did
Cons: The price that Kayak listed wasn't the final price! That amount was charged to my credit card right away but I had to pay another 25%!!! of that when I returned the car. And not because I returned it late or dirty or damaged. Just because the price on Kayak wasn't the final one. There is only one reason why I book with Kayak and not Hertz and that is the cheaper price. Got screwed on that one....very disappointing

Poor service
Cons: I had a confirmed reservation...I called an hour before pickup to find out they did not have a car. No apology and not even the courtesy of calling me in advance. I will not ever rent from Hertz again.

If you cancel you lose!
Cons: I had to cancel this reservation 2 days before travel as I was very sick. I was told that the money was NOT refundable. I should have never used this search engine and should have booked directly with Hertz. Never again!!

Lacking communication
Pros: The rental office at the airport is conveniently located.
Cons: I was not informed that: a. I needed to get my own transportation from the Airport to the 518 E North Street office b. that renting the car from the airport location meant additional expenses c. Poor soft-skills from the person at the counter.

Car was fine, service was not.
Pros: The car was clean and comfortable. Drop off was easy.
Cons: Pick up was in a dark garage so I didn't notice that the hood wasn't completely latched. I noticed this when I stopped 40 miles away. I am very thankful that it didn't come open on the interstate. Also, we booked the car at the wrong location in Greenville. I know that is our mistake. However, by changing locations the cost went from $60 to $144. I would expect to pay more at the airport, but not more than twice as much. The lady at the desk was more concerned with some "platinum member" she was working on than the customer in front of her (me). She got aggravated when I asked if there was anything she could do about the price difference. I should have just cancelled it at that point and went elsewhere.

Pros: Renting through Kayak I reserved a car to pick up downtown rather than the airport. I'm pretty sure that I searched using the airport name.

They don't have a clue
Pros: Nothing
Cons: They wanted to charge me more than double the $237 confirmation for a manager special. Told me that I didn't have a rental. I showed them the confirmation email and they said there was no record,HMMM! After about 45 minutes of arguing I was on my way. The Mgr Special was a Focus that howled loudly at 40 - 70MPH. The howling was too loud to talk without yelling. The seats were stained and it didn't look like it had been cleaned(paper and pebbles in the front seat). Also the fuel system had acceleration issues(it bogged down then kicked in). I will NEVER get a manager's special again. All in all the guy at the counter was incompetent

Pros: The staff was nice
Cons: Checked the availability online before I made my plans and booking. They said they had a truck...didn’t get my car until almost 2 hours after my reservation and it wasnt even a truck. They should have given us a deal for our troubles but instead it was more of a oh well this is what you get attitude

Courteous and friendly staff but car was dirty
Pros: Car had no fuel when I picked it up but the staff refueled it for me and allowed me to return it without filling it back up. When I noticed the pet hair I called the rental location to advised them and they placed a note in the rental agreement that I would not be responsible. No hassles upon returning the car despite the 2 snags when I picked it up. Staff was very courteous.
Cons: - When I went to pick up the car it had no fuel. - Signs on the counter saying that there will be a $150 fine if the car is found to have pet hair or ashes. after getting home and folding the back seats down to pack the car, pet hair all over the floor. - car was generally not very clean on the inside (outside was very clean).

It'd be nice if they actually cleaned the car befo
Pros: The car was very comfortable
Cons: The car was only superficially clean. Anything that wasn't easily accessible, like the cup holders and storage compartments was filthy. Also, the car wasn't in great mechanical shape; warning message that it needed an oil change showed up. Also, car appeared to have a questionable fuel injector; acceleration would stutter at times.

Pros: the return in CLT was fast
Cons: First off, KAYAK sent me the WRONG address to pick up the car from so I had to call another Uber to take me to the correct address and was a huge waste of time. Then the pick up process took way too long. I put in my reservation days before with a pickup time and I expected my car to be already separated and ready to go requiring only my signature on some paperwork. They only started to LOOK for a car for me when I arrived. It took 45 MINUTES to pick up the car. It seems that only a small team works at the AVIS and they were all busy.

Car needed work done to it that made my trip harde
Pros: This is reflected through your specific survey topics listed.
Cons: The wiper fluid was not only empty but didn't work when it was filled & with snowy/wet road conditions I had to pull over every few miles to clean my windshield. The "get your oil changed soon" notification was also on when I got my car... yes, the interior of the car was comfortable, but these nags didn't make for smooth sailing... it was disappointing.

Rude and ignorant
Pros: After being extremely stubborn and unhelpful they pointed out the fact that there was an Enterprise across the street from their location.

Pros: Car was fine and met our needs
Cons: We had searched for pick-up from Greenville Spartanburg airport but the booking we received received required us to pick-up in town. When we picked up the car from the airport, it was $163 more expensive. The person at the desk was unwilling to do anything to assist and the city office was closed.

Top tips for renting a car in Greenville

  • 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.
  • Book your rental car in Greenville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
