San Diego Rental Car Deals

For a visitor to take in even a portion of all the delights that San Diego has to offer—sun-splashed beaches, Hispanic cultural and historic sites, and the world-famous SeaWorld and San Diego Zoo—getting a rental car is the way to go. Whether you pick up your rental car at the airport or from one of the many car rental companies in town, you will find some useful information below to help you get the right rental car for the right price.

Location, location, location

If you're arriving in Lindbergh Field by plane, you may wish to pick up your rental car from one of the many car rental companies at the airport. Hertz, Advantage, Avis and Thrifty are just a few of the car rental companies at San Diego International Airport (SAN). We can also show you a map of the nearest car rental locations to your hotel and the rental cars they carry. (And keep in mind that off-airport car rentals are often cheaper than at the airport, even from the same car rental company.)

Picking the rental car that's right for you

Expedia offers a choice of standard rental cars, luxury autos, vans and SUVs to meet nearly every need. If you need any special equipment, like a child seat, let us know and we will forward your request on to the rental car company. And what's more, when you choose to "hire a car" (as the British say) from one of our car rental partners* in San Diego, you'll be dealing with a rental car company that has made a special commitment to provide Expedia customers with great customer service, a wide choice of top quality cars, and competitive total pricing.

Expedia's Total Pricing

Unlike some other online travel sites that show you a cheap discount rate for your car rental when you're shopping and then heap on taxes and fees when it comes time to pay, Expedia shows you the final price up front. What you see is what you pay.

*Advantage Rent-A-Car, Dollar Rent A Car, Enterprise, Hertz, and Thrifty
