KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Fullerton

  • Driving a car hire in Fullerton offers convenient transportation, particularly for those arriving by plane or train. It provides a seamless way to reach your destination, or explore the city, without relying on public transportation or expensive taxi services. With the freedom of a Fullerton car hire, you are able to explore Fullerton and its surrounding areas at your own pace. Located in Orange County, California, Fullerton offers numerous attractions and points of interest. With a car, you can easily access nearby attractions such as Knott's Berry Farm, Huntington Beach, or the beautiful coastal towns along the Pacific Coast Highway.
  • If you are arriving by air into the local domestic airport, John Wayne Airport (SNA), then you can start your car hire journey there. The John Wayne Airport is located in Santa Ana, approximately 26 km (16 miles) southeast of Fullerton. After landing, you will find the car hire desks located on the Ground Floor in Arrivals, by Terminal A and B. The car hire pick-up location is on Level 0 of Parking Structures A2 and B2. You can expect the drive to take approximately 30 minutes from the airport to Fullerton.
  • When driving your car hire in Fullerton, be aware that it is a densely populated city, and traffic congestion can occur, especially during peak commuting hours (between the hours of 08:00 to 10:00 and 16:00 to 19:00), or around popular destinations. Congestion may lead to delays, frustration, and an increased risk of accidents. Therefore, it is advisable to allow for some extra time for your journeys and be patient on the roads to avoid any accidents.
  • It is important to consider the weather conditions in advance when preparing to drive your car hire in Fullerton. Depending on the time of year, weather conditions in Fullerton can vary. You can expect adverse weather conditions, such as heavy rain, fog, or extreme heat, all of which can impact road surfaces and visibility, potentially making driving more hazardous. Therefore, make sure to always adjust your driving style and speed to suit the weather conditions.

Pros:

Very friendly and helpful staff especially at pick up but also at drop-off. Upgraded the car without any difficulty and were very glad to have a larger car (Camry) for a long trip. Plenty of trunk room-fit two large suitcases and a smaller one as well as a couple of backpacks.

Cons:

I was originally told I could be picked up as long as the pick up point was within 2 miles of the rental place (Fullerton) so I arranged to be picked up but the morning of the pickup when I called to change the pick up time, they had no record of agreeing to pick me up at all!

Cons:

After making my reservation with Hertz, they told me they do not have any cars for that price. I would need to upgrade to a SUV for triple the price if I wanted a car that day.

Pros:

staff was very friendly and helpful. when I needed to extend my car rental reservation they had no problem extending it for me on the phone.

Cons:

They just need to be more informative about certain details. example: if you return the car after the time you picked up the car than you will be charged an extra fee or another day.

Pros:

The staff was very professional, friendly, and accommodating. This was my first rental experience that I actually got a better car than the one I reserved—my previous 3 rentals had nowhere near the car reserved, even after confirmation the day before. To top it all off, the drop off could not have been any easier, and I was able to keep the car longer than anticipated. We will be going to this particular enterprise for all my rentals in the future.

Cons:

This experience was near flawless.

The vehicle we used was a jeep grand cherocke, we drove the car a little more than 1000 miles. So a car with better gas milage would havr been nice. But i think the jerp we used averaged apptoximately 21.5 mpg, so i cant complain too much.

Incorrect pickup and drop off time on paper-work for a one-way rental. Vehicle was not clean. Two seats were missing from the vehicle. This is such an insult to a paying customer with reservation. Will no longer rent from Avis if the issue/s on drop off time isn't remedied.

Pros:

The staff did not notify me that they had no cars eventhough Kayak.com allowed me to book online. But, i was notified 2 hours before I was suppose to pickup the car to drive to my flight.

Cons:

Kayak and Budget need to figure out the rental inventory before allowing customers to book. And the system should also allow ample time for the potential customer to resolve the inventory booking error.

Pick up took very long as they were quite unorganized. Drop off was a nightmare- they were supposed to be open by 9:30am and I waited until 12 noon (which was my drop off time) and they did not open their business. There was no one there yet they had a line of customers waiting out in the cold.

Cons:

Organization, communication with customers, and promptness- no one took responsibility for today.
