The moment I arrived at CarRentals in Bakersfield on Golden State Avenue was a disaster. The manager Utilia was the most unpleasant customer service rep I’ve ever encountered. The car that was assigned was a ‘Hyundai Accent’, which was at no way comparable to a Toyota or equivalent of. The car seats were so uncomfortable and the overall mechanics, were at best or equal to driving a tuna can. I’ve shared this frustrating and horrible experience with family and friends. Most replies were, ‘you should stick with the reliable conlanies’, which I will from now on. Extremely dissatisfied!!!!!!!’nn.

What type of rental car should I get for my trip to Bakersfield?

Whether you want a roomy family vehicle or a low-cost economy car, the sheer wealth of options in this California city means you're bound to find an automobile that is perfect for you. Some options include:

How old do you have to be to rent a car in Bakersfield?

Generally, to rent a car in Bakersfield you must be at least 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. If you are under 25, you might also need to pay a surcharge. Be sure to read over the rental agreement to discover what the total will be before you reserve your rental.

Will I need insurance to get a car rental in Bakersfield?

Insurance is always required, wherever you're renting a car. That said, you might already be covered by your credit card or car policies. Keep in mind, those policies may not provide total coverage, and you'll have to add it on to your booking. Look into it before you book and, if it's required, you can just add it at checkout.

What is the fuel policy for Bakersfield rental cars?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.

What fuel policy do you recommend?

At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You pick up your rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before bringing the car rental.

Is it worth getting unlimited miles?

Unlimited miles is a good option if you plan to do a little sightseeing or visit several business associates all over Bakersfield. You can drive wherever you want and not incur additional charges. Review your rental agreement to find out if there are any limitations.

Before you drive off

Before you begin on your Bakersfield vacation, be sure you go over a few things before you leave the lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Walk around your car and be certain there is no dents or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Inspect the trunk to determine if the spare is inflated and both the lug wrench and jack are there
  • Get familiar with the controls of your car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable working the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new city
