KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Eureka

  • Driving in your car rental in Eureka will be the quickest and most convenient way to view the sites in the area. Another reason hiring a vehicle service is preferable to taking the bus is because some bus routes only run during rush hour. This is one of the reasons why. If you want to see more of Eureka and the surrounding region than you could if you relied on public transit or walked everywhere, renting a car is your best choice since you can go to more places and see more things. Walking alone will not get you very far if you are interested in seeing more.
  • Arcata/Eureka (ACV) Airport provides car rental in Eureka, and passengers may pick up their rental cars inside the airport terminal. There are a lot of different automobile rental agencies to choose from, some of which are Avis, Budget, Thrifty, and Hertz, to mention a few. As a result, you are being given the strong recommendation that you rent a car at this airport. In certain countries, the minimum age limit for car renting is just 18 years old. In addition, having a credit card and a driver's license that are both in good standing are requirements for daily life. In addition to the driver's license issued by their home country, drivers from countries other than the United States and the United Kingdom will need an International Driver's Permit.
  • The roads are in great shape, and most of the drivers in the area are kind and courteous, making it a snap to go about in a rental car in Eureka and explore the surrounding area. Everyone in the city has to maintain a heightened state of vigilance since the heart of the town is traversed by each of the city's major thoroughfares. When driving in Eureka, you should provide at least three seconds of distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you, signal your turns as early and as loudly as possible, and remain in the lane that you are in. If you follow these guidelines, you should find that your driving time is far less stressful.
  • It is the responsibility of renters of Eureka car rentals to be aware that pedestrians often cross roadways without first checking that traffic is in both directions. There are periods throughout the day when it is more likely that certain Eureka streets may be very crowded. Consistently difficult-to-navigate traffic conditions prevail in the city's core business district. Seven to nine a.m. and four to six p.m. are the busiest hours on the highways.
  • Book your car hire in Eureka at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Eureka are around -31% cheaper than other car types, on average

However, reserving a minivan is your best bet if you are traveling with more than two people. When selecting a rental car, plan according to your travel schedule.

Pros:

My flight was cancelled from SFO to McKinleyville, so I had to rebook my car rental to leave from SFO and drove north. Top marks to Arlene, who worked very hard to get me the best rebooking deal possible, and it only cost me an extra $75 or so to depart from a completely different city.

Cons:

Other than the pain of rescheduling and having to drive an SUV that guzzled gas (I only needed an economy), I appreciated their help and it was a good rental experience.

Pros:

The staff called me just a few hours before my rental to inform me that they had no vehicles available except for one van I asked if they could give me the Vin for the price of my reservation and they said no so I was unable to get to the places I needed to this weekend with my family.

Cons:

They shouldn’t have had vehicles available on their website if they weren’t really available. And if they are going to cancel someone’s reservation they should at least first offer the vehicle that you have for the same price of the reservation

My flight was delayed and so the rental car place was closed. Luckily another rental car company was open and I was able to get a car through them. Very disappointed that National did not stay open knowing they had customers to serve.
