Car rental in Sacramento: All you need to know

Bag yourself a ride in Sacramento with CarRentals.com, and you can flit quickly between the grand California State Capitol buildings and the door-slapping saloons of Old Sacramento. With your own wheels you can even break out to the wilderness and beyond.

Is there a chance I can get cheap Sacramento car rental deals?

That’s precisely why CarRentals.com exists. Offering to do the leg-work for you, it will list all of the best-priced car rental companies and vehicles on offer in Sacramento. That said, it’s also wise to:

  • - Secure your Sacramento rental car way before arriving in California;
  • - Avoid picking up your ride at the airport – it could come at a premium;
  • - Add only a single driver for your Sacramento rental car;
  • - Compare the ins and outs of fuel and mileage policies with different providers.

What’s the range of Sacramento car rental outlets like?

Plenty of big-name players in the car rental industry have outlets in Sacramento. You’ll find spots run by Avis, Enterprise, Alamo, Hertz, National – the list goes on. Many have just one office, while others have several places to pick up from across the city.

What’s my choice of cars in Sacramento?

Don’t worry about securing the right car for your Sacramento trip – there are plenty of wheels on the roster here. Some to consider are:

Car Type Best for Category includes
Intermediate Families who want a reliable ride to get between the main sights Toyota Corolla, Kia Forte, or similar
SUV Skiers and hikers bound for the mountains, perhaps with extra snow chains if needed Jeep Compass, Toyota Rav 4, or similar
Luxury Folks who like efficient air conditioning and plush seats to travel in comfort Nissan Maxima, Chevrolet Impala, or similar

Will I need to be a certain age to rent a car in Sacramento?

Yes. You will need to have celebrated your 21st birthday. And if you’re lucky enough not to have marked your 25th yet, you may also need to pay a little extra to cover a surcharge for younger drivers.

Is insurance required to rent a car in Sacramento?

You should never drive without car insurance, whether in Sacramento or anywhere else. The good news is you can easily add it to your vehicle hire when booking on CarRentals.com. What’s more, some drivers will already be covered on existing car or credit card policies.

What should I do about a fuel policy for my Sacramento car hire?

When it comes to gas, you might have a few policies to pick from when renting a car in Sacramento, but the most common type is surely full-to-full. Go for that if in doubt, because it means you just need to return the auto with the same amount of fuel you found it with.

And what about unlimited mileage options in Sacramento?

Viva long road trips to Lake Tahoe and the Californian coast. Those are possible with unlimited mileage policies, which let you travel far and wide without incurring extra fees for distance. Bag them if you’re planning on a far-flung adventure.

Can I pick up and drop off my Sacramento rental car in different places?

That should be fine – the range of drop-off points just depends on what car rental company you’ve chosen. The upshot is that you’ll be able to put together a real road trip, taking you through the alpine meadows of the Sierra Nevada, perhaps, or maybe along the whale-splashed Californian coast. 

3 sights that should be on every Sacramento bucket-list

From dusty streets ringing with the sounds of spinning boot spurs to choo-choo museums laden with vintage locomotives, there’s loads to get through in Sacramento. Here are some ideas to ponder:

  • - Check out Old Sacramento, the heart of the pioneer city, with adobe homes and cowboy saloons aplenty.
  • - Feel nostalgic at the California State Railroad Museum, which has grand engines and boxcars and collections that chronicle the coming of the tracks across the continent.
  • - Gaze at California State Capitol, the iconic landmark of the city, with its whitewashed dome and stately architecture.

3 day trip suggestions from Sacramento

Sacramento is the gateway to north California’s inland wilds. That puts some truly breathtaking spots on the menu. Try some of these trips on for size:

  • - Go east to Lake Tahoe – a skiing, boating, beach-lazing haven for outdoorsy types.
  • - Drive north-east to the Plumas National Forest, a sprawling wilderness of dense trees and snow-powdered peaks.
  • - Leave town on the I-80 to get to Folsom Lake, which has fishing spots and hiking trails aplenty.

Where can I park in Sacramento?

Popular areas like Old Sacramento and the Downtown tend to have tight limits on parking times, with paid meters offering stays of up to 2 hours in those areas throughout the week and weekend. You might find it easier to leave the auto at one of the regional park-and-rides, or find yourself a Sacramento hotel with spaces provided.

Pining to explore the pioneer lodges and California State Capitol? Buzzing for a road trip to the Sierra Nevada? Check CarRentals.com for the latest deals in Sacramento to get out and exploring the cityscape and beyond in no time at all.
