KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Mission Viejo

  • Booking car hire in Mission Viejo provides a level of easy-to-use transportation that is more convenient than public transportation. As wonderful as the Metrolink and bus systems can be, they're not always comfortable or timely. With Mission Viejo car hire, you're in control of your own schedule. You can explore the city and its destinations at your own pace, without having to wait for a train or bus to arrive or adhere to their schedules. Mission Viejo and the surrounding neighbourhoods have so much to offer, from the rolling hills of Cleveland National Forest and the stunning shores of Laguna Beach to the shopping and entertainment district at the nearby Irvine Spectrum Center.
  • Most car hire companies at Los Angeles Airport (LAX) offer a shuttle service to take travellers to their hire car offices. The shuttle pick-up area is on the lower level outside each terminal's Baggage Claim area. The shuttle buses are marked with the appropriate car hire company logos. The offices are located in a facility near the airport called the LAX Consolidated Rent-A-Car Facility.
  • Utilising car hire in Mission Viejo is generally uncomplicated. One rule to be aware of is Mission Viejo's prohibition on the use of cell phones while driving. This includes both handheld and hands-free devices, except in emergency situations. Bicycles are common in the area; it's essential to be aware of them, especially when turning, as they are allowed to ride on the same roads as other vehicles. There are also trucks on the road, particularly along I-5, which runs through the city.
  • Mission Viejo experiences heavy traffic during rush hour times, which are typically from 07:00 to 09:00 and from 15:30 to 16:30 on weekdays. During these times, major roads such as Interstate 5, 241 Toll Road and 133 Toll Road can experience congestion and delays. The summer months can also be difficult for using car hire in Mission Viejo due to increased tourism and visitors, as the city is located near some popular beaches and attractions.
  • Book your car hire in Mission Viejo at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Mission Viejo are around -46% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

Drop-off was easy and super low-key. No hassle pick-up. Car was in good condition. Reasonable price.

Cons:

Drop-off was intended for Labor Day (Sept 2) but the location (and every other location) was closed. I wasn't aware that I'd be unable to return the vehicle, and have yet to find out if Budget is going to charge us for the extra day despite no heads-up and no alternative drop-off options.

Cons:

I called Friday afternoon and reserved a mini van for a 24 hour rental and scheduled a noon pick up on Saturday. I received a call at 10 am on Saturday morning from Budget saying they did not have my vehicle. I called customer service, and they found a rental 1/2 hour away in the opposite direction. After negotiating with C.R., they agreed to give me the van for the same price. But, it was too late to find a ride to pick it up. I was very upset.

Cons:

Reserved a car but was notified the day of my rental that there were no cars available. A rep apparently called to let me know AFTER my reservation time had passed but didn't leave a message. Fortunately, I called to make sure my car would be ready, at which point the rep just told me that they didn't have any cars and to call about store and provided no additional assistance. I spent an hour on the phone ensuring that the guaranteed price would be honored at another location and had to speak to 3 different customer service reps (some of whom were rude) and had to cover the cost of travel to another rental location at the last minute.

absolutely 0 professionalism.......miserable corporate culture.....angry people...maybe its because i booked for 5 days at $350 over the phone, and then got on kayak and found the same car for a 7 day rental at $235, and then put 1650 miles on the car cruising around the vegas desert.......the car itself was fine, but this tanner manager inbred wouldve dragged outside and beaten in most countries....

Cons:

Couldn't use debit card to pay (prepaid online with debit card). Arrived at store and they said they wouldn't take that card. Had to be charged again. Was refunded money, but not after a long phone call to Hertz, going back and forth between different people there. After over 1 week, the money appeared back in my account.

They told me they were open on Monday, Memorial Day, when they were not. I was left unable to leave the car and had to drop it off elsewhere. The customer service more or less accused me of lying to them. They’re a horrendous, awful company and I’ll never rent from them again.
