Grab the Keys
Reserve a car in advance here on Expedia.com to ensure you get the model and features you want. If you’re flying into town, pick up your rental car at Oakland International Airport (OAK). Once you’re off your plane, hop on the rental car shuttle, which will take you on a quick trip to the Rental Car Center. After you’ve grabbed the keys of your Oakland car rental, you’ll be all set to take in all the sights, sounds, and tastes of Oakland without relying on public transportation or taxi service.
When you grab a cheap car rental, Oakland becomes an easy city to navigate. Pack the kids into the minivan and drive down the Embarcadero to Union Point Park, where they can play for hours on nautical-themed equipment. Hungry? You’ll find cafes and restaurants – along with some boutique shopping – on Broadway. Feeling adventurous? You can cross the Bay Bridge and test out your GPS on the streets of San Francisco, or you can make a more sedate trip down the 101 and enjoy the small-town charm of nearby San Carlos.
