Car rental at Oakland Airport (OAK): All you need to know

Your trip to California is bound to be full of fun and excitement. The city of Oakland, known for good food and its proximity to the San Francisco Bay Area, is an ideal jumping off point for many adventures. Get your trip started on the right foot with a cheap Oakland airport car rental and see the northern part of the Golden State in style.

I’m looking for a cheap car rental at Oakland Airport. Can you help me find one?

You’re in the right hands at CarRentals.com, since we have a huge range of great deals on rental cars. To secure the best deal, make sure you:

  • - Browse the available rates and compare what’s on offer;
  • - Have a think in advance about your mileage and fuel requirements, which will depend on your travel plans; 
  • - Adding drivers can increase costs, so stick to one if you can.

At what age can I rent a car in Oakland?

To rent a car, you must be aged 21 or over. Additionally, if you’re under 25 years old, your rate might be a little higher.

Which rental companies are at Oakland Airport?

You’ll see a range of providers such as Enterprise, Alamo, and Budget, among others. Shop around and compare their various deals and inventories when making your car rental reservation.

Where are the rental car companies located at Oakland Airport?

Debark your plane and step outside Terminal 1. The complimentary rental car shuttle runs every 10 minutes, and it will bring you to the Rental Car Center, where you can pick up your car keys. Downtown Oakland is only five miles north of Oakland International Airport (OAK), so you’ll be ready to explore in no time.

How do I get an insurance to rent a car in Oakland?

You can purchase insurance at the CarRentals.com checkout if you’re a US citizen. Your chosen rental provider will also be able to sell you insurance, but it’s also worth checking if you’re already covered by your credit card insurance.

What do I need to bring with me when I pick up my rental?

There are just three things that you should remember to bring with you: the credit card used to make your reservation, your driver’s license, and your insurance document.

Which fuel policy should I ask for?

While there are many fuel policies on the market, we would recommend the full-to-full policy. Since you’ll collect the vehicle with a full tank of gas, you won’t have to worry about filling up for a while. Do remember to refill the tank before you drop off the car though, so you don’t get charged a fee.

Should I hire with unlimited mileage?

While there is plenty to visit in Oakland, such as Jack London Square and the Oakland Coliseum, your rental car will take you beyond the city if you choose to go on a longer adventure. You might drive northwest to Pier 59, or Napa, the Bay Area’s wine country. Whichever parts of Oakland you decide to explore, unlimited mileage gives you the freedom to maximize your itinerary without worrying about the costs.

Can I get a one-way rental at Oakland Airport?

You can select different pickup and drop-off locations if you need a one-way rental. Just check directly with the rental company for information on additional costs.

What type of car should I get in Oakland?

Your choice of car will probably depend on your travel plans and the size of your travel group. See a few of our suggestions below:

Car Type Best for Category includes
4WD Families going on a camping trip or who plan on navigating tricky terrain Ford Explorer or similar
Convertible Couples who want to cruise to Napa Valley in style VW Beetle or similar
Economy car Travelers with fuel and cost efficiency in mind Chevrolet Spark or similar
