There was no wait to pick up the vehicle, the car was in great condition, the car drove well and was nice overall. Returning the car took about a minute.

This was my second experience in renting a vehicle with Alamo at the Sacramento airport. I was hoping that I wouldn't get Shahid again, but he was the one that helped me. I should have learned the first time! He wasn't very helpful when I asked questions, he's not very personable, and really pressured me to get their insurance. I was not able to add on an additional driver unless it was at the time of rental, which I found out later that Hertz will add another driver anytime. Just go to any Hertz counter, and add the driver. I think I'll try them next time. On a positive note, the vehicle was nice, and easy to drive.

The whole process was easy and convenient. My car was readily available and it was easy to find it. The only thing I didn't like was the exit sign was so small that it was difficult for me to find.

Overall experience was good, although had to clarify few things myself rather than being told to customer (for ex. there was a dent in the trunk door and few scratches all around, I wasn't informed that they knew it already. I had to go back to counter after picking up the car to check with them about this and had to take photos of the same).

The desk service was great and fast. They pulled the car up for me (ADA) and when I saw there was a cigarette hole in the front seat they told me to photograph it and the time stamp would be sufficient. They offered to switch the truck for me, and I declined, no big issue.

They were kind of rude and we were told they did not have any Yukons, even though that was the car we selected (weird for an airport location). Also, the guy marked our gas as full when it was only half a tank and was giving us trouble for using Carrentals.com insurance instead of theirs.

How do I get the best price on a rental car at the Sacramento Airport?

CarRentals.com can help you figure out transportation your trip to Sacramento. If you want to snag the best possible deal, you could:

  • Decide what car you'll need for your drive. Don't get more car then you need
  • Compare and contrast weekly and daily rates from all the different suppliers
  • Be aware of any cost for an added driver, fuel policy, and mileage limits. That way you can make sure you know the true cost before you book your car

Do I have to be a certain age to book a car in Sacramento?

The youngest age to rent a vehicle in Sacramento is 21. Be aware there is usually an added charge if you are under 25. Additionally, for higher categories, such as premium, large capacity vehicles, or SUVs, the age restrictions can be different. Check with the rental car company before you book.

What rental car companies are at Sacramento Airport?

There are 11 rental companies at the Sacramento Airport. Rent from suppliers like Hertz, Dollar, Airport, and National, plus many more. With a wide variety of great choices, you are sure to get the automobile and the rate that you desire.

Is insurance required for Sacramento rental cars?

In Sacramento you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. You may also buy additional insurance through your supplier, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Many major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Sacramento. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Make sure to present your credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What is the fuel policy on my rental car?

At CarRentals.com, we suggest a "full-to-full" policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less fuel than you began with, the company may charge a premium to top it off. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before you return the car.

Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Sacramento?

Sacramento has lots to keep you busy, however you may want to head to close by areas to check out what else this region has. You can discover the rest of the region free of mileage limits when you venture to see what else California has to offer.

Is it possible to book one-way at Sacramento Airport?

Most companies offer one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different location. Keep in mind there may be an additional fee when you decide to only go one-way.

Is there a particular vehicle I should rent for my trip to Sacramento?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you have in mind after you land in Sacramento. Smaller automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their Sacramento trip can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
