KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Oroville

  • Car rentals in Oroville have several advantages over taxis and public buses, which are the two most popular transportation options. Two of the popular sites you can conveniently visit if you have a rental car are Riverbend Park and Feather Falls waterfall. It’s cheaper to rent if you’re planning to visit several places in Oroville or in other nearby cities; taxi fees add up quickly. Oroville car rentals have the benefit of enhanced flexibility, since you’ll have the liberty to decide your own departure times and routes. This is not possible with buses, which usually operate on fixed routes and departure schedules.
  • Consider Sacramento International Airport (SMF) as your preferred car pickup location for car rentals in Oroville. Compared to other locations in the city, it’s easier to rent from this location, especially if you’re new to Oroville, and you’ll also have a better chance of renting a specific car model you want, due to the large selection of cars in stock at all the car-rental agencies. These agencies, including Alamo, Hertz, Enterprise, and Budget, are located at the Car Rental Terminal, which you can get to using the airport rental-car shuttle.
  • Even though jaywalking is illegal in California, always remember when driving in Oroville that you’ll commonly encounter pedestrians and cyclists who dart into the street without checking for oncoming vehicles. This is especially more common on streets within the downtown area. Therefore, it’s recommended that you maintain a lower speed when driving on these roads, especially in the morning and late afternoon. If you’re driving with your kid(s) eight years or younger, you must keep them fastened in an appropriate device, such as a child car seat, infant seat, or booster seat.
  • The convenience of using car rentals in Oroville is challenged during the morning and afternoon rush hour. Between 6:30 am and 9:30 am, traffic is usually heavy on most roads in Oroville, the most affected roads being Highway 70 and Ophir Road. Rush hour happens again in the evening starting around 4:30 pm and lasting until about 6 pm. Therefore, if you have to use Ophir Road at any of these times, consider starting your journey 20 to 30 minutes earlier than the normal time you’d start.
  • Book your car hire in Oroville at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Oroville are around 23% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • How much does a Compact car hire cost in Oroville?

  • What type of car is recommended for renting in Oroville?

    To comply with California State law, which requires 35% of cars sold to be zero-emission, most of the car-rental agencies in Oroville have significantly increased the number of electric cars in their selection of rental cars. Therefore, if you’re seeking to rent a car in Oroville, an electric car will be a good option for you. Otherwise, depending on your destination, a compact car would be ideal if you’re traveling to the city center, where most of the streets are narrow and there’s heavy traffic almost any time of day.

  • What’s the speed limit Oroville?

    Unless otherwise posted, the speed limit you need to observe when driving your rental car in Oroville is 55 mph. However, this speed limit might increase or decrease depending on the road or zone in which you’re driving. For example, if you’re driving your car in neighborhoods or school zones, the speed limit is usually 25 mph. All drivers are expected to know this, thus sometimes you won’t find the speed limit posted. On major highways, like Highway 70 and Highway 162, the speed limit is significantly higher; still, you should not exceed 70 mph even on these highways.

  • What are the best places to park in Oroville?

    Getting a place to park your car rentals in Oroville is a hassle-free process. The parking lot on 3rd Street, which is open 24 hours, is one of the places you can reliably find a space to leave your car any day. It costs between $1 and $3 per hour to park at this parking lot. Additionally, you can park your car on some streets in Oroville for about $1 per hour from 7 am to 8:30 pm, Monday through Saturday.

Pros:

The Chico staff at Pick-up are ALWAYS AWESOME. I will rent there every time. But, my trip was abruptly halted when, on my way home Monday AM, I and my husband were victims of a drive-by highway shooting. One bullet, both of us hit. Both of us are okay, treated and released from ER, need medical follow-up for wounds and possible internal damage - long story. We think the seat belt kept the bullet from entering his abdomen - long story. AND, I bought the extra coverage this time, THANKFULLY!!!

Cons:

When Calif Hwy Patrol or San Pablo police seized the vehicle to look for the shell casing and more investigation, my partner and I were taken to the ER for treatment in an ambulance, without the rental. We were released Monday morning and still had to travel 3 hrs home to Chico. We took a Yellow Cab to Enterprise at Richmond Hilltop. THESE GUYS WERE HORRIBLE!!!! NONE OF THEM WOULD HELP ME FIGURE OUT HOW TO RENT ANOTHER VEHICLE, AS THE ORIGINAL RENTAL WAS UNDER INVESTIGATION. THEY WERE RUDE, COLD, UNCARING, AND FLIPPANT. WOULDN'T OFFER ANY SOLUTIONS - JUST THAT THEY COULDN'T SCAN THE CAR, WHICH WASN'T THERE, BACK IN TO GIVE ME ANOTHER. THEY WOULDN'T CALL CHICO TO CONFIRM MY CONTRACT. RELUCTANTLY THEY CALLED THE SP POLICE AND KNEW THE CAR WAS WITH THEM. I PURCHASED THE EXTRA COVERAGE. THE CAR WAS 100% COVERED AND MY RENTAL CONTRACT SHOULD HAVE BEEN CONTINUED. THE RICHMOND GUYS WERE NOT INTERESTED TO HELP ME SOLVE THIS ISSUE, WOULDN'T EVEN GIVE ME A NEW RENTAL UNLESS I LIED AND USED ANOTHER NAME AND CREDIT CARD. WOULDN'T EVEN GIVE ME A RIDE TO ANOTHER RENTAL AGENCY TO GET A NEW CAR, 5 MILES AWAY. WOULDN'T CALL ME A CAB TO GET OUT OF THERE. WOULDN'T GET OFF THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA LONG ENOUGH TO PAY ATTENTION TO ANY POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS. JUST "WE CAN'T" AND THATS IT. BOTH OF US HAD GUNSHOT WOUNDS AND ALL THESE GUYS WERE SO SO COLD. AGAIN, CHICO IS AWESOME. RICHMOND SUCKS. I'M GOING TO CALL AND WRITE CORPORATE, EVERY DAY IF I HAVE TO, TO GET SOME ANSWERS WHY THESE EMPLOYEES ARE SO UNWORTHY. I'LL TAKE THIS TO THE TOP IF I HAVE TO. BAD ENTERPRISE!!!

Pros:

After the issues I had, they did take $25 off my bill which was helpful. The drop off at the sac airport was very good and quick. Customer service was great.

Cons:

Reservation was for 8 am, arrived at 9:15, didn’t receive the car until about 10:30..also did not have the correct car that I had reserved which was economy so they gave me a small truck. I won’t be coming back to this location. Seemed to be a lot of workers that were doing nothing or joking around.

Pros:

Staff was not friendly and drop-off was not fast. I want my car to be clean when I get it because I paid the price for it. This is my first time using them and will be my last. I will go somewhere else.

Cons:

It's not clean. I don't even want to get in the car because there is dirt on the doors. The seats was dirty and I can see spot of left over food. I got a RAV 4 and there was no bar on the back truck to cover my belonging. They should do a better cleaning and better job.

Didn't have full tank of gas. Almost 1/8 gal. shy. No one picks up the phone. They disconnect you and transfer you and hang up on you.. Liars, Liars, Liars. I have pis to prove and names and number, but honestly.... they don't care. Just go with a different company, because Avis sucks. Thank you for reading.

I was forced to rent a car with another company at twice the price because of the last minute reservation. I will never use Hertz or Kayak again.

Pros:

The second employee I worked with was courteous & helped me change my drop off location

Cons:

The first employee was rude, wouldn’t believe that I already made a deposit (I had to call orbitz & have them tell her I was telling the truth). She tried to make a new reservation where I’d have lost my deposit but I caught her and told her no. She was very unprofessional and argumentative. The car wasn’t cleaned out from the previous driver... some nasty stuff including a slimy latex glove still in the back
