How do I find the cheapest car rental company for San Diego Airport?

The best, cheap deals from San Diego rental companies will be clearly listed, letting you make an informed choice. To keep things in budget, try to:

  • - Reserve your vehicle well ahead of your trip;
  • - Be clear on the fuel and mileage policies; 
  • - Carefully check the rental car for any bumps or dents that haven’t been recorded.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in San Diego?

As a rule of thumb, car rentals are only available to drivers aged 21 and over. On top of that, you may have to pay an extra fee if you happen to be under the age of 25.

What car rental companies are in San Diego Airport?

San Diego draws in countless visitors every day, here to indulge in the blissful surfer culture, see the cultural sights, or make important business connections. So, it’s good to know the airport has a range of car rental companies to choose from, including the likes of Alamo, Hertz, and Enterprise. Not to mention smaller, local firms. It’s always a wise idea to do a bit of research and check the most recent user reviews online before making your final decision.

Where are the car rental companies situated at SAN?

San Diego International Airport (SAN) is just a few miles from the city’s atmospheric downtown district, so it’s an ideal access point for anyone here for business or pleasure. The airport also has a dedicated Rental Car Center, with free shuttle buses available to whisk you from the terminal to the rental company desks.

Do I need an insurance for a rental car in San Diego?

When booking your San Diego rental car, remember to check whether your credit card covers rental insurance, or whether it’s taken care of by your pre-existing car insurance. Being a US citizen, you can also simply purchase a policy via CarRentals.com, or buy direct with the rental company you opt for.

What do I need to bring when picking up a rental at the airport?

Remember to bring along your driver’s license on your San Diego trip, as it’ll be needed when you come to pick up the rental vehicle. Remember also to bring the credit card you used to book the car, as well as the driver’s licenses of any additional drivers for that vehicle.

What fuel policy is available at the airport and which one should I get?

The usual policy favored by most drivers is a full-to-full fuel arrangement. This means you can set off confident in the knowledge you have a full tank of gas to play with. All you have to remember is to replenish the reserves before dropping the car back off, or face a penalty.

Is it advisable to get a car with unlimited miles in San Diego?

Perched on the Pacific coastline, San Diego is a gateway to miles of scenic, oceanfront bliss, with plenty of neighboring communities packed with family-friendly attractions. Before you set off on dazzling road trips, just ensure you’re clear on the mileage policy – many rental companies offer unlimited mileage on their vehicles, so you can sightsee without a second thought.

Is it possible to hire one-way in San Diego?

Many rental companies are absolutely fine with you dropping your rental car off at a different branch. You just have to check what the possible fee for a one-way trip is, to avoid any surprises.

What kind of car should I rent at SAN?

San Diego is known for its cool, artisan breweries, its Mexican-flavored Old Town, and of course it’s beach culture. Its proximity to other coastal hotspots like Carlsbad means you may be itching to get out and see as much of the West Coat as possible, whether in an SUV, minivan, or luxury convertible. If you’re sticking to a tighter budget, you can also opt for a comfy, no frills economy car.

So, if you’re ready to make the trip to San Diego, take a moment to check the offerings on CarRentals.com, and arrange local transport to suit your exact needs. Then, you can get set to discover the fascinating history and sandy splendor of San Diego.
