Frequently asked questions
How do I get an Oakland Enterprise car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, whether you book. However, booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I carry with me when I get my rental car in Oakland?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Oakland?
Enterprise's minimum age to rent a car in Oakland is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Enterprise's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Oakland?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Oakland. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. Commute times in Oakland are close to 26 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then opt for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little luxury on their Oakland trip can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Enterprise car rental?
Enterprise requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Enterprise will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Oakland. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Enterprise rental with a full tank?
We encourage a full to full policy. You should get into your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Enterprise. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Oakland?
Oakland has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Oakland. If you want to add a bit excitement to your Oakland trip, you can also drive to Children's Fairyland and spend a day taking on the park's attractions.
Does Enterprise offer one-way rentals in Oakland?
Enterprise offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
