KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Paso Robles

  • Car rentals in Paso Robles, California make perfect sense as the ideal mode of transportation. Paso Robles could get you to your destinations within the city more than six times as fast as public transportation could. When you choose car rentals in Paso Robles, you could also explore central California by taking Route 101 north for about 90 minutes to Salinas, 2 hours to Monterey, or 3 hours to San Jose. You could drive south 30 minutes to San Luis Obispo, 2 hours to Santa Barbara, and even 4 hours to Los Angeles. Within the area itself, Paso Robles car rentals will allow you to explore the vineyards and wineries that the region is known for or to head to the beach, about 35 minutes away.
  • When you are flying into central California to visit Paso Robles, consider landing at the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport. This airport is about 40 minutes southwest of Paso Robles. This airport is small and easy to navigate, and Avis, Enterprise, Budget, and Hertz are among the car rental agencies that you will find. Once you have secured your rental vehicle, simply exit the airport and follow signs to Route 101 west/north, which will take you directly into Paso Robles.
  • Paso Robles is essentially a small town that is growing very quickly, largely due to the wine industry. As a result, some of the infrastructure, including roads, haven't quite caught up to the population growth. Some of the roads show wear and tear, such as potholes, and parts of the town could use more street signs and street lights. Overall, Paso Robles is a small town with a quaint, but very busy, downtown area. As you drive at night further from the town center, be advised that country roads become extremely dark at night, much darker than you might be used to if you are accustomed to driving in more urban areas.
  • When you are driving through Paso Robles, beware of congested traffic on Niblick Road in the morning and the afternoon at the times when the high school is both starting and stopping for the day. The downtown area tends to be crowded, especially in the summer and during holidays, when there is an abundance of shoppers or people attending festivals. Also, drivers in car rentals in Paso Robles should exercise caution on Spring Street when driving by the vast public park. Beware, especially, of children or animals running into the road.
  • Book your car hire in Paso Robles at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Paso Robles are around 1% cheaper than other car types, on average

Cons:

The pick up was a nightmare. I had to cross the highway with a suitcase and no sidewalks. The directions to the pick up weren't clear at all. I walked around forever before I actually found the right building. Then my car wasn't ready. The whole process took an hour and a half.

United Dropped me in DC and I had to Rent a Car to Drive myself home to VA Beach. I requested a FULL SIZE Car and got a Little KIA. It didn't even have Electric Seats or a Rear Window Wiper. The Driver who took us from Airport to Avis was Very Rude and insisted on playing his Radio Loud even when I explained I needed to Make an Important Phone Call.

Pickup was fast, good, well maintained. Car. Paperwork was a minimum. Drop off was during a huge rainstorm at Santa Barbara airport. They were Avis reps outside who took care of just about everything. Couldn't have been better under the circumstances.

Maybe clearer that location is not at the airport. It's possible it says that and I missed it.

Pros:

When I finally did get a car, it was clean and service at the new location I had to go to was efficient and friendly.

Cons:

I was called one hour before my scheduled pick up time (12pm) and was left a voicemail simply confirming my pick up time at 12pm. I happened to call back just to be courteous, and luckily I did because I was then told they did not have a car for me, but they *might* have one at 5pm. They said this as if it were no big deal at all. When I said that was not going to work for me, and requested that they find me a car in the area at a different location, I was told I would receive a call back in 5 minutes. The woman on the phone was extremely rude, unapologetic, and interrupted me repeatedly. A half hour later I had not received a call, so I called to follow up and was informed they had found a car for me, but apparently they had forgotten to call me back to tell me. I was told at this time that my car would be a minivan and not an economy car as I had requested. After arriving at the new location, I asked if they by any chance had an economy car, and was told oh yes no problem of course we do. I'm very confused about why this happened. I was offered no explanation, and was ignored when I asked for one. I was never apologized to and was treated as if this is a regular occurrence. I had scheduled my pick up a week in advance, and had several people depending on my being able to pick up the car at 12pm. This whole experience left me speechless. I have never experienced such poor customer service, and don't feel that I brought this on as I was extremely polite and respectful through my entire interaction with all Avis staff I encountered. I was offered no compensation for the stress and inconvenience of this ordeal and would like a response from your customer service department. Thank you.
