KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Fremont

  • As a safe and quiet suburb, Fremont is a great place to be based not only when visiting San Francisco but also the whole of the Bay Area, especially when you have a hire car. But the city is a gem on its own right, so make sure to drive to popular attractions such as the Great Mall of the Bay Area, around 12 miles from the city center. For a natural escapade, head to Muir Woods, only 40 miles away.
  • The two closest airports to Fremont are San Jose International Airport (SJC) and Oakland International Airport (OAK). The hire Car Center at SJC is located just across from the Terminal B exit. Passengers at Terminal A can take the blue shuttle all the way there. The hire Car Center at OAK is at the airport’s North Field, and there is a shuttle bus operating between the facility and all the terminals.
  • Fremont’s geography is mainly defined by the hills on the east side and the bay on the west, but most of the city is concentrated on the bay side, which is easier to drive and navigate. Mission Boulevard is one of the main streets, and is one to avoid driving through if you don’t want to face crowds. Fremont is also a good introduction to driving in San Francisco’s famous hills.
  • While San Francisco may really struggle when it comes to traffic congestion, Fremont is more manageable. Still, it’s best to avoid both the morning rush hour (7:30-9 a.m.) and the evening rush hour (3:30-7 p.m.) in order to skip the worst traffic. The I-880 route to both Oakland Airport and San Jose Airport gets pretty crowded during peak hour, with travel times often doubling.
  • Book your car hire in Fremont at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Fremont are around 36% more expensive than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Fremont

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

    If you’re just driving through Fremont or intend on driving in San Francisco, the best option is renting a small, compact car such as a Smart because it’s easier to manage and park on the city’s narrow streets and steep hills. If you’re going on a road trip along the Californian coast during the summer, try a convertible to take in the scenic views.

    The speed limit in the city is typically 25 miles per hour, but it is lower around schools and in specific residential areas.

If you’re heading to San Francisco, just know that the speed limit on the iconic Golden Gate Bridge is 45 mph.

  • Where are the best places to park in Fremont?

    Street parking in San Francisco is scarce and often expensive, so it’s best to leave the car in Fremont and then commute using the BART or Caltrain railway systems.

There are also parking garages and lots scattered around Fremont’s center, including the Fremont Hub Shopping Center and Fremont Library Parking.

KAYAK

Pros:

Seemed pretty simple to book

Cons:

The vehicle - a Nissan Frontier, i booked wasn’t available because they said the online stock of vehicles isn’t always accurate. They left me no choice to but to spend about $15 more on a big Dodge 2500 pickup truck to go biking. The truck is way too big for the purpose I needed and cost of fuel to power the monster is way higher then necessary. My whole point of renting vehicles is because I have other ways to commute to work so I don’t need a car on the day to day. I’m trying to be eco-conscious, so having behemoth of a vehicle for a single person to go ride a mountain bike is ridiculous.

Pros:

Staff was amazing and pick-up and drop-off instructions were very helpful and easy. I was very pleased with my interactions with staff members and felt they did a great job!

Cons:

I was disappointed in the selection of vehicles I was able to rent. I had paid for an intermediate SUV and was given an option between a small one and an intermediate one. I went with the intermediate Nissan Rogue because I was told that it both radar cruise control and apple car play, both of which I asked for when renting the vehicle. Unfortunately, neither of those features were available on the vehicle I rented and I ended up driving almost 2000 miles without them. I was disappointed in the comfort of the ride and the lack of features of the vehicle and won't be renting from Hertz in the future.

Called in advance if I could have 30 minutes grace period for returning, they said ok. When I arrived, the guy behind the counter gave me the silent treatment for about 5 minutes, then said " you're late " I explained that I called, but didn't matter to him. He says they could charge me for additional day- he was really indignant. Most rental companies will give an hour or so grace, but this guy would have none of it, even after I called ahead.

The car vi rented had some severe issues with the breaks. Every time we would break, the whole car would shutter. Probably warped break rotors. It was quite scary at times as our road trip was going through some mountain areas. We could not swap the car either, as we had packed it with several stuff as our road trip was for moving purposes. The stuff we had in the car took forever to pack since it had to be strapped down and secured etc.
