Moreover, these young drivers can’t access all vehicle classes, including luxury car rentals in Myrtle Beach. Drivers also need to have a credit or debit card in their name to get car rentals in Myrtle Beach. They’ll also need a valid driver’s license, and foreign drivers should present their home country’s driver’s license, and an International Driving Permit is recommended though not required at all times.

What are the rules for driving in Myrtle Beach?

If you’re sticking to downtown and its environs, a compact vehicle or a sedan should get you through the busy streets of Myrtle Beach. If your friends or family are tagging along, consider a minivan such as Toyota Noah since it offers more space for people and cargo.
