KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Barstow

  • Using a car rental in Barstow has many advantages over using public transport. With a Barstow car rental, you can go anywhere, as predicated routes and schedules do not restrict you. Additionally, with a rental car, you can easily visit areas with rugged terrains that are inaccessible via public transport, such as Castle Monuments National Museum and Ord Mountain. For those tagging along as friends, family, workmates, or teammates, a rental car would be suitable as it can fit a large number of passengers and their baggage. Rental cars also provide privacy and entertainment, unlike public transport.
  • You can get to Barstow via Ontario International Airport (ONT). Ontario Airport hosts several major car rentals in Barstow at East Airport Drive, less than a mile from the airline hub. To get to the airport’s rental car center, you will take an escalator to the terminal’s lower level. From there, you will go outside the terminal to get a rental shuttle to your rental car provider. Shuttles operate every five to 20 minutes. Ensure you are at least 21 years old and have a valid driver’s license and major credit card to obtain a Barstow car rental.
  • For your safety and that of other motorists in Barstow, review the area's driving laws and regulations before obtaining a rental car from car rentals in Barstow. Drive defensively and yield to tailgaters, servers, and other aggressive drivers. Ensure your lane changes and turns are predictable and smooth, and always indicate ahead of time. Maintain a safe distance between yourself and other drivers so you can brake or stop when required. Be on the lookout for pedestrians as jaywalking is commonplace.
  • Barstow is at the intersection of three major highways, I-40, SR 58, and I-15, and roads may be congested, especially during rush hours. The bulk of the workday traffic rush in Barstow starts from 5:30 am to 8 am, while the evening rush hour is from 5 pm to 8:30 pm when locals commute to and from work. Review live traffic reports to avoid spending your holiday time stuck in traffic, or plan your trips to avoid driving at these times.
  • Book your car hire in Barstow at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard hire cars in Barstow are around 29% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Staff was friendly and knowledgeable...no up sells!

Cons:

The first vehicle brought out appeared comfortable but the tires were obviously worn. We were taking this vehicle across the country, thru the desert in 110 + degree weather. There should be better quality control on vehicles and their upkeep. The staff was very prompt and courteous in providing us with a better maintained vehicle.

Pros:

You canceled my reservation a day after I booked and never notified me. Furthermore you confirmed the reservation 5 days after I booked. When I showed up to the Avis they had no record. I had to drive 2 hours to the nearest airport to get another rental.

Cons:

Communication. Horrible.

Pros:

Staff at Victorville and LAX were nice and helpful.

Cons:

I wanted a Sedan but was given an SUV crossover which I did not want. Nobody explained to me what to do in case I ended up on a toll road. I tried to pay the toll online but because it was a rental I couldn't do that, so I have to pay an exorbitant price. Dropoff at LAX was disorganized.

KAYAK

Pros:

Avis cancelled my rental without give me any notification before my family's vacation because they did not have the vehicle in stock and they did not want to honor that price for a larger vehicle or something similar like a minivan. I feel that was unfair and it caused me a lot of inconvenience and extra money. It may have been that particular Avis but no matter what that is definitely poor service!

Cons:

EVERYTHING! I WILL NOT RENT FROM AVIS AGAIN!!!!

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

First the rental office had a sign showing closed until 3:00 p.m. along with a hand written sign with new hours stated they were open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Car pick was scheduled for after 12:00 I arrived at 2:00 p.m. Secondly the computer system was down and they had no way of renting me a car. No back up or hand paperwork to do any rentals. Could you imagine going to a hospital and they couldn’t treat you because the computer was down. Poor service poor quality and extra miles on my own car that I did want. I don’t recommend Budget/Avis of Barstow, CA

KAYAK

Pros:

Even though this location is always really busy, the staff always provides great service and never seems flustered even when problems come up. We had reserved a large SUV but found out when we came to pick up that we needed a credit card not debit card for that sized vehicle. The staff got us into a mini van that needed up working out better for what we needed and had better gas mileage.

Cons:

Wish it was more explicitly stated that you needed a credit card for certain rentals but now we know and can plan in advance for next time.

Pros:

The booking process.

Cons:

Got to the place only to be told the vehicle wasn't available and representative's attempt to charging us double the price originally quoted for an available upgraded vehicle. When we questioned, all the other representatives pulled an intimidation tactic, even going as far as referencing my "face". What a ghetto group of people trained to do Bait and Switch and intimidation tactics.

Complete waste of my time. I made the reservation and I literally walked to the rental place and was told I couldn’t rent with a debit card and also that they did not have any cars available for rent. I was stuck for 6 hours waiting for a friend to get into town to pick me up. I was also never reimbursed the insurance on the vehicle that i never even rented. Horrible experience and I will never use hertz or kayak to rent a car ever again
