We always quote fully inclusive car insurance, using National / ALAMO as our provider. The US is not the place to drive around under insured and your client will find that the cost of paying the insurance extra is much greater if they pay on arrival.
Standard inclusive cover
Unlimited mileage, CDW (Collision Damage Waiver), $1 Million Liability Cover, Sales Tax, State Tax, Airport Fees, CFC (Subject to location), Mechanical Assistance.
GOLD inclusive cover
Unlimited mileage, CDW (Collision Damage Waiver), $1 Million Liability Cover, Sales Tax, State Tax, Airport Fees, CFC (Subject to location), Mechanical Assistance, up to 3 additional drivers, initial tank of fuel.
Your client can add a pre-paid GPS navigation option to both the standard and gold covers on request.
All of the above options are based on a minimum driver age of 25. We do also offer a yound driver policy for an additional fee.
When collecting the car your client will have to present their UK driving license. Although this is all they will ask for, legally your client should also have an International Driving Permit as well which you can get by applying to the AA.
The driving permit may become an issue in the event of an accident or other problem so please make your client aware.
Car rental pickup
On pick up your will not always be asked to inspect the vehicle. If they are not asked to do this we recommend that they still have a good look for any damage and insist that this is recorded before they drive away.
When your client picks up their vehicle(s) they will be asked for a credit card which they will swipe. Provided you have paid us for full insurance cover your client will have nothing further to pay. They need the imprint in the event that further charges arise, see below.
The drop off time will be stipulated and there is usually a grace period of only 59 minutes. We believe this is not in the agreement so may not be given. We recommend therefore that you do not rely on it. What this means is that if your client is late returning the vehicle they will be charged for an extra days hire. So it is better to arrive well before the stipulated drop off time.
If the deal is to return the vehicle with a full tank make sure that your client does that. Otherwise the hire company will charge far more per gallon than your client would pay at the pump and this would be charged to their credit card on file.
Your client will not necessarily be told anything at the time of drop off and any extra charges will appear on their credit card in due course.
For passengers flying into Myrtle Beach airport we can arrange transfers to and from the airport through our preferred taxi partners. If your client prefers not to drive at all during their stay we can also arrange for transfers to and from the golf courses.
Our taxi providers will allocate one driver (per vehicle) for your clients entire stay so they can easily make arrangements with him directly if they require additional taxis during their stay.
