Bakersfield Car Rentals

Fly In and Drive out of Meadows Field

From the second you land at Meadows Field (BFL), you'll have your heart set on exploration and an exciting agenda ready to go. This region is known for it's small-town feel and relaxed lifestyle. Of course, you could line up for a taxi. Or you could rely on buses to explore after you check into your hotel. But being a smaller town usually means there aren't a plethora of choices for going across town without your own car. Seeing as how there are a lot of lodgings in the city, you could take a chance with your hotel's shuttle, but it could be packed or not run as frequently as you'd like.

Reserving a car rental means more freedom during your vacation.With your own rental car, explore Bakersfield as little or as much as you want. Say adieu to understanding the bus schedule and hello to a vacation on your own terms.
