KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Fontana

  • Renting a car in Fontana is better than traveling using public transport. With a bus shuttle or train, you have to wait for the scheduled departure/interchange time, and the services are delayed or unreliable. Moreover, the lack of flexibly public transportation won’t allow you to explore attractions, such as Etiwanda Falls Trailhead, that are a few miles away from the city. With car rentals in Fontana, you can experience comfort and save money, especially when traveling in a bigger group.
  • Travelers can find rental cars at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), located about 56.6 miles away. It is the largest airport serving Fontana city. There are over ten Fontana car rentals at the flight hub. They include Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Sunrise, Hertz, Alamo, State Van Rental, National, Europcar, Thrifty, Dollar, Silvercar, and Budget.
  • Fontana is a big city with busy roads, which have many intersections, and maneuvering across the city can be challenging, especially if it’s your first time in the city. To overcome this challenge, make sure you study the routes you will use before leaving, especially if your rental car doesn’t have a navigation system. When entering densely populated residential areas, drive slowly and pay keen attention to pedestrians who might cross the road unexpectedly.
  • Before renting a car in Fontana, it is important to understand that it is a regional hub for the trucking sector. Like other cities, traffic gets congested during the rush hours, with many heavy commercial vehicles plying through the I-10 and I-15 Freeways during mornings and evenings. It’s recommended to maintain alert on the road and a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead during these times. The city streets and paths may also have heavy traffic, which calls for patience and extra care.
  • Book your car hire in Fontana at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Fontana are around 72% more expensive than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Fontana

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Fontana?

    With a large car selection from car rentals in Fontana, travelers can choose a perfect ride that’ll help them explore the city and its surrounding neighborhoods, such as Sierra Lakes, Rancho Fontana, Declez, among others, with ease. For example, an SUV is ideal for families going on an adventure trip to the countryside. Instead, you can select a van if you’re visiting Fontana as a group. Vans offer extra room and space for persons and cargo. If you’ll be moving around the city alone, a compact car that can easily squeeze in tiny parking lots and narrow streets will be a preferable choice.

  • What’s the speed limit in Fontana?

    It's fundamental to adhere to the speed limits on different types of roads. Typically, motorists must maintain a speed limit of 65-70mph on multilane highways, such as I-10, I-15, and State Route 210, that pass through the city. On a single-lane road and city streets, drivers should not exceed 55mph and 35mph, respectively. However, in a residential area, school, or church zone, driving beyond 25mph is illegal.

  • Where are the best places to park in Fontana?

    Fontana has many parking lots where travelers can park their rental car. You can find free and paid parking slots in specific areas of the city. There are other privately-owned parking lots, but you'll have to be a customer to enjoy a two-hour parking session. Some free two-hour parking lots are found at the Fontana Metrolink Station Park, Sierra Ave, Bloomington Park & Ride, and Riverside-Orange Park & Ride.

Pros:

Loved the helpful staff. They got me what I needed with the least pain possible and were professional and kind through it all. One of the better business experiences I've had in a long time.

Cons:

One guy wasn't as familiar with a process as the lady, but they got it right and both were very pleasant.

Pros:

Staff was friendly and helpful. Pick up time took awhile and they did not have the vehicle I booked, but was able to work with me and gave me a good deal with something similar or yet better. Drop off was easy and quick.

Cons:

The vehicle wasn’t thoroughly cleaned (saw few stains on leather seats, dirty foot prints on back seats, and the drivers seat belt had a strong perfume smell. So I had to clean and sanitize myself esp during this pandemic I wanted to make sure everything was wiped down good before my road trip. It seemed like the car was just used before pickup so it looked like they did a quick wipe down of the car before I took it. In the end, I’d say the cleaning part could have been better.

Nothing it was the worst car rental ever

Cons:

They said they have a shuttle to pick you up from the airport. I landed at 10:15am I waited till 11:30 am and no one picked me up. They never answered there phone so I had to spend $16 to catch LYFT to go to them. Then all they can say was oh we were busy. I will never rent from this place again

Pros:

I wasn’t charged, luckily, when they did not provide the service. This was helpful because I was actually worried they would still try to charge me but the customer service person was nice and helpful.

Cons:

I was not informed that at ONT you do not go to the “Rental Car” area for ACE. You have to call a number to get picked up. It took me 30 min to get to the rental car area, wasted time. And after finding out I could not get through to customer service at all—was only re-routed through automated voice prompts. Finally I had to give up and rent a different car. Seems like an email after booking would have cleared up 100% of this. Again, I am thankful they were very pleasant on the phone the next day and did not charge me.

Pros:

Good pricing

Cons:

Quite a bit. My brother experienced multiple mechanical problems including a transmission going out and broken headlights. They told us to drop it off at another location because our pickup location was closing soon. The man at that location tried charging an extra $84 for a "refuling" charge even though we returned the car on full. He was unable to explain why it was on there and stated "I don't know return it in Colton tomorrow." He refused to call anyone to see why the charge was on there and was very rude. I am just amazed at all of the problems we experienced.
