i will nevet rent from car rentals again: while making the reservation the hours of operation are not clearly stated. a late arrival resulted in missing office staff which then resulted in multiple taxi fees. moreover the hotel name where the car rental service is located had changed morr than 6 months ago but this information was not updated on the reservation website. the hotel's address was also not clearly visible which caused me extra time after a more than 24 hour journer. finallt the car rental booking company was very difficult to deal with and would not reimburse me for the extra fees incurred.

Not only did I not receive the car I had paid for, the man at the desk tried to up sell me three times. First he tried to get me to take a car for $20 MORE a day, then $10 more, then $5 more. I had to keep saying no until he finally gave me the price I had signed up for. He also told me that he accidentally gave the car I wanted to the guy in front of me, but then later said that I would have to wait 20 min. for the car I wanted. When I said I'd wait he quickly gave me a different car. Overall it was a confusing and frustrating process in which I felt like he was trying to get more money out of me.

The staff at the Hyatt Centric in Santa Barbara were so helpful and nice. It took very little time and was a pleasant experience all the way around.

Great experience, but was a little disturbed that I purchased insurance twice...once when I registered on-line to rent the car and another when I picked up the car. Why did I need two insurance policies?? I would LOVE if I was re-imbursed for the $36.00 policy I bought when I rented the car on-line. When I picked up the car I was told that insurance was NOT valid and I needed to purchase additional insurance?

What kind of rental car should I get for Santa Barbara?

Nothing says good times like a good ol' road trip, particularly when you're traveling someplace as awesome as Santa Barbara. With bucket-list sights like Presidio Santa Barbara and University of California-Santa Barbara, there's so much to see in so little time. That's where a rental car can help. You'll be able to tick off more places — but opt for something small for easy city driving, like an economy car.

Trade the zippy runabout for something larger, like a four-wheel drive, and discover the glorious sandy shores.

Alternatively, if you just need a set of wheels to get you from A to B as cheaply as possible, go for a versatile compact vehicle (or something else that's unlikely to break the bank).
