San Francisco Car Rentals

Take Your Vacation for a Spin

While it might be tempting to drive your rental car as fast as it will go up some of the steepest urban hills anywhere to see if it will bounce over the crest - la Steve McQueen - we would never advise driving recklessly. And, in any case, why wouldn't you want to drive slow and take in one of the most beautiful cities in North America? For a truly unforgettable experience, drive your rental car across the Golden Gate Bridge on your way to Point Reyes National Seashore for a break from the city hubbub. Whether you choose to 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.

Reserve a Car Rental To See All that You Can

From a drive across the Golden Gate Bridge to a relaxing day spent touring the peninsula, there's much to see in "The City by the Bay." While San Francisco has excellent public transportation options, if you really want to see the city and the surrounding Bay Area on your own time, you'll need a San Francisco car rental to get around.

Exploring San Francisco

Steer your luxury rental car from Alamo along the Embarcadero to get a good look at the city's waterfront. Stop at the Ferry Building Marketplace for a meal or to do a little shopping, followed by visit to Fisherman's Wharf, located at the eastern tip of the city proper. You may end up spending hours at the wharf, which is home to numerous attractions and the Aquarium of the Bay. Also in the vicinity are the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, as well as Ghirardelli Square.

If you'd like to see other parts of the Bay Area, rent a car in San Francisco and then steer south along I-280 to the peninsula. Look into a fuel-friendly Hertz car rental to make the most of your Northern California vacation. Head west on Highway 92 to play on the beaches of Half Moon Bay, or keep going south to visit the Bay Area's horse country in Portola Valley. Alternatively, steer your San Francisco rental car about 50 miles north on I-80 to Napa, better known as Northern California's wine country. Explore the beautiful vineyards, do a little wine tasting, and stop for some window shopping at the Napa Premium Outlets.
