We booked for 12pm pickup and showed up at 12pm. They close at 12pm on Saturday. We were not able to get the car. Called Hertz and they said it was our fault for not checking the hours. Hours were not listed in the booking confirmation.

Car was clean & in good condition. Excellent communication from everyone especially the manager Tess & the lady who checked us out at the gate, they could not have been friendlier or more helpful. One exception of when picking up the young lady did not seem to know we were covered for insurance & presented us with a bill for $99 she said which was for an extra day, we were not taking an extra day which was clearly stated on our rental voucher (which she did not want to see) I questioned the amount to be charged & this was amended immediately. Overall would definitely use this service again.

Rental in Oakland: Choice of cars was rather poor, seems to be related to the Corona Crisis though. No information about upgrades. No GPS available. Staff was very friendly but was apparently not trained to understand international travellers‘ needs and questiones who havn‘t had a lot of experience on the US car rental market. I tried out a competitor before, which worked much better.

Sorry my bad. I screwed up. Will actually not fully my fault. I did indicate I wanted to rent from SFO airport and it also apparently gave me options for Oakland airport rentals and I rented a car from there without realizing. Duh! Will anyway it was nonrefundable and I'm screwed out of $140. So since kayak sent me a request via email for a review of my car rental it's fair to say it didn't go so well!

Pros:

Cons:

I reserved the car and was scheduled to pick it up at 8PM. I showed up a little bit late, and I assume this would be no problem, because the Oakland Airport Rental Car Center is open 24 hours a day. When I got to the car rental center, no one was at the Payless desk, and another lady told me that Payless closes at 8PM. So why would I be allowed to reserve a car for pickup at the time that the desk closes? So anyway, I had to change my trip plans because I had no rental car.

When we picked up our car, fortunately before we left the lot, we noticed that we had been given a car with an almost flat tire. Alamo quickly put us in another car, but it wasn't until after we left the lot that we realized we were given a car without a full tank of gas. This location doesn't seem to pay attention to details.

What's the point of getting misguided info?

Top tips for hiring a car in Oakland

  • Oakland is an eclectic city full of alternative arts and diverse food culture, with hidden gems sprawled across the city. Whether you are planning on attending an Oakland Athletics ballgame or checking out the long list of art museums in town, renting a car will give you the opportunity to make the most of your time here. Your hire car will also let you explore the Californian wilderness in the Anthony Chabot Regional Park or venture across the bay to the bright lights and bustling metropolis of San Francisco.
  • The Oakland International Airport is located only 10 miles south of downtown and has major car hire companies such as Alamo, Avis, Budget, and Enterprise. Once you have viewed the best deals with KAYAK and have chosen your preferred company, pick-up at the airport is simple. Shuttle buses leave every 10 minutes from outside Terminal 2 and will take you directly to the airport’s hire Car Center.
  • Be mindful that the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is a tollway when driving westbound to San Francisco, so, if you are planning on including this in your driving route, be sure to check the conditions of your hire agreement. There is a large number of one-way streets throughout Oakland, so it is best to use a navigational GPS to preplan your drive before taking off.
  • Rush hour traffic can be troublesome during the peak commuter periods as workers travel between the nearby cities of Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose. The morning rush is most evident between 6:30 am and 9 am, while in the evening it is best to avoid driving between 5 pm and 8 pm if possible. The I-80 encompasses the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and continues further north past Berkeley, so it is recommended to redirect away from this major thoroughfare during rush hour.
  • Book your car hire in Oakland at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Oakland are around 71% cheaper than other car types, on average
