Book a Car Rental To See Everything You Want

Get ready to spend some time in "America's Finest City" when you reserve a car rental in San Diego, CA. Where else can you spend the morning visiting museums, the afternoon touring wineries, and an evening watching the sunset at the beach? There's much to do in San Diego, and if your time there is limited, don't waste a ton of hours coordinating your schedule to that of public transit when you could be cruising up I-5 to the area's famous beaches. Get ready to save in the sunshine with a cheap San Diego car rental.

Fun in the Sun

Almost every day is a beautiful day in San Diego, so sail down Harbor Drive in an exotic sports car from Hertz. After stops at the Maritime Museum of San Diego and a delicious meal in Little Italy, make your way to I-5 North and get ready for some time at the shoreline. We recommend a stop in the charming Ocean Beach neighborhood; walk on the pier, look at the tide pools, and enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants lining the waterfront. When you've gotten your fill of salty sea air, retreat inland to Old Town San Diego for a sweet Mexican pastry and a quick tour of some of the area's historic buildings.

With a rental car, San Diego becomes easy to access. Drive your luxury rental car from National north to La Jolla, home to beautiful sunsets and outstanding shopping. If you're feeling adventurous, rent a car in San Diego and steer east toward the small town of Julian to experience fantastic pies and beautiful hiking trails. Additionally, drive about 60 miles north of downtown San Diego to Temecula, CA. Boasting a charming historic district, Temecula is also home to a number of wineries, many of which offer tours and wine tastings. If you decide to enjoy a tasting or two, please remember to drink responsibly.
