KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Cerritos

  • Getting car rentals in Cerritos can go a long way in making your tour of the city a lot more enjoyable. A rental car brings a different level of flexibility that you wouldn’t otherwise get with any other transport option. Whether you want to check out the breathtaking scenery at Don Knabe Community Regional Park, have some fun with friends at The Gardens Casino, or check out the amazing exhibits at The Los Angeles County Fire Museum, you can visit each one of them hassle-free. You will also be able to visit neighboring cities and see some of the most attractive attractions in California such as the Hollywood sign, the Los Angeles Walk of Fame, and various beaches.
  • When going to Cerritos, you could land at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana or Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Regardless of the airport, you choose to land in, you can still get Cerritos car rentals as both airports are served by close to ten car rental agencies. In the case of John Wayne Airport, you can find the Alamo, Avis, Budget and Enterprise rental agencies’ desks in the lower level of the arrivals area between Terminals A and B. If you’re landing at Los Angeles International Airport, the rental car agencies are slightly distributed around the airport, but you can access them using a shuttle that is available outside baggage claim on the lower level of the arrivals area. Some of the agencies available at this airport include Dollar, Sixt, National, Hertz, and Fox.
  • While jaywalking is illegal in Cerritos, there are still people who do it. Therefore, you need to be very careful when driving around these streets to avoid any unforeseen accidents. In addition, cyclists are also common, especially in residential districts and school zones. For that reason, you need to leave them enough space on roads that don’t have a cycling lane and ensure you double-check your mirrors when turning right just in case there’s one hidden in the blind spot.
  • Driving your car rentals in Cerritos should be a walk in the park as long as you avoid the traffic rush hours between 7 am and 9 am and in the evening between 4 pm and 6 pm. Some of the roads that are mostly affected include the Riverside Freeway and Bloomfield Avenue. It is also worth pointing out that most toll roads in the area don’t have a cash booth so you will have to pay for these tolls online.
  • Book your car hire in Cerritos at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Cerritos are around 7% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What’s the speed limit in Cerritos?

    Different speed limits apply to different roads depending on where they are located. For example, on interstate highways, you can go as fast as 65 mph and 55 mph if the highway is undivided. When driving around school zones, residential districts, and the business district, you are required to keep it to a minimum of 25 mph. It is worth mentioning that in areas where the speed limit is posted on signs, that limit supersedes any other set limits.

  • Where are the best places to park in Cerritos?

    When parking your car rentals in Cerritos for a brief period, street parking is the best option since you will only pay for the duration you have parked and it is much more convenient. However, if you’re parking your car for an extended period, you should consider a parking garage or parking lot such as Cerritos High Parking Lot or 600 Los Cerritos Center Parking. They are more secure and don’t have time limitations.

Pros:

The didn’t have the car reserved. So instantly go a upgrade, the car was perfect for my drive to San Francisco. And looking back I don’t think I would of nearly enjoyed as much with the original car I picked. While doing the vehicle inspection I did not notice the car had a nail in the front passenger tire luckily it did not pop on my trip I noticed it took it to an enterprise unfortunately they did not have a car nearly as nice as the one I was driving so they preferred that I take it to a qualified tire repair shop and have them bill enterprise. They were very nice and didn’t bill me the entire day. And it took maybe 4 hours I had the car by 4 pm.

Cons:

The car had 15% oil life and I noticed it probably halfway through California so completely pointless to stop and get an oil change I just drove it until it hit zero and luckily that was about 20 minutes outside of LA on the way back home. Not a big deal when you deal with as many cars as they do.

Can’t really provide a full experience review since a day before my scheduled rental pick up date I get a call from the local office telling me that they don’t have an available rental for me. As a standard customer service practice, it would be expected for them to take the initiative and find an alternate vehicle for your reservation, yet I was told that if I wanted another vehicle, to call the 1-800 number and speak to someone for them to find me another vehicle. Since my trip was coming up in a few hours, I needed to find a solution ASAP, so I called. I was able to find an alternate vehicle but with a price increase and a price adjustment or honor of the original price was not an option. So, for future rentals I am not sure if I would trust the company for my trips.

Cons:

I was given wrong information when I called the budget hotline or customer service line. I was told I can use a debit card because I am over 25 and didn't need a credit card. When I got there first of all they had no cars at all... this was before I knew I could not use my debit card. They said they had 2 cars left.... a pathfinder and jeep compass. The people next to me just rented the pathfinder and then was informed the compass was not even on the lot. The lady was super rude!!!!! I rented a small size car and asked her since there are none here can you call another rental place to see if they have any. Was told it is to close to closing time. The overall experience was AWFUL!!!!!!!! the customer service was HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did not leave with a car. I told the lady I have no problem getting a credit card..... again left without a car!!! It was overall a HORRIBLE experience..... I do not take this out on Budget in general but the place that is renting your cars..... needs to be checked out!!!!!

I reserved a full-size car at a local location. I called the location about an hour later to let them know I would be about and hour later than the reservation time to pick up the car. I was told they didn’t have any full-size cars available, only minivans and I shouldn’t use a third party service to book a car. They said I should always contact the branch first. Then I called the 800 number to help locate a car in the area to fulfill my reservation. The 800 number agent told me that the branch showed availability but she could not confirm that they had a car for me. I did not rent a car from Hertz.
