Car rental at Santa Ana Airport (SNA): All you need to know

Whether you’re on a trip with the whole family to take on the thrilling rides and heroes of Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm, or you’re traveling solo to check out shopping at the Irvine Spectrum Center and the exhibits of the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, a rental car makes it a breeze to get around Orange County.

How can I ensure I find the cheapest car rental company for Santa Ana Airport?

Thanks to CarRentals.com, you can look forward to having a vehicle ready and waiting when you arrive at Santa Ana Airport. To ensure a cheap rate, try to:

  • - Compare deals from Santa Ana rental companies;
  • - Stick to 1 designated driver for the vehicle; 
  • - Be clear on the mileage policy for your rental car.

Am I old enough to rent a car?

As a rule, drivers have to be 21 years of age or over to make use of rental cars. If you’re under 25, a surcharge may also apply.

Which car rental companies will I see in Santa Ana?

Whether you want to book a rental car with Alamo, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, or other big name rental companies, you will find them at the airport. Just take a few minutes to check user reviews online before making your decision.

Where are the car rental companies based at the airport?

Santa Ana Airport, properly known as John Wayne Airport (SNA) is a cinch to navigate. The rental car company desks are located between Terminals A and B. Look out for the statue of John Wayne close by.

Do I need an insurance for a rental car in Santa Ana?

Yes, you’ll need to have suitable car insurance. It could be that your pre-existing car insurance policy, or your credit card insurance, covers rentals. If it doesn’t, you can purchase a new policy from CarRentals.com or the rental company itself.

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

Don’t forget your driver’s license – it’ll be required when you pick up your car at the airport. Your credit card should also be with you, while any additional drivers registered for the car should bring their licenses as well.

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

Different fuel policies may be available, but most drivers will want to go for full-to-full. This just means you get a full tank to begin the trip with and are expected to return it with a full tank at the end. Forgetting to refuel means a fee, however.

Is it best to get a car with unlimited miles in Santa Ana?

Santa Ana is well-placed for seeing some major California attractions, from Knott’s Berry Farm theme park to the Pacific coastline. If you have a lot of sightseeing on the agenda, it’s important to check your rental car comes with unlimited mileage, so there’s no risk of incurring extra fees.

What if I only want to hire one-way in Santa Ana?

Flying into Santa Ana, but not returning by the same route? Ask your rental company about one-way hire. Just bear in mind it may cost extra to drop your car off at a different branch.

What kind of car should I rent at Santa Ana Airport?

Keeping a close eye on travel costs? An economy car rental is just the thing, especially if you happen to be visiting on your own, or with a partner. On the other hand, large groups – say families, or gaggles of friends – might want to splash out on a big, comfy SUV, which will make it a pleasure to explore California. If it’s a special occasion, why not drive around in a premium category car for an extra touch of luxury on your vacation?

Car Type Best for Category includes
SUV Family or group of friends who want to travel in style, with added comfort Hyundai Santa Fe or similar
Economy car Couples or solo drivers who are on a tight budget Chevrolet Spark or similar
Premium car Those who want to leave an impression or add luxury to a memorable occasion Jaguar F-Type Coupé or similar

Ready to see Santa Ana and beyond? In between packing, use CarRentals.com to pick out the perfect car for you, and bag a great deal. That way, you’ll have more spending money left over for your jaunt to the West Coast.
