Reserved a rental online through here/priceline. Checked out the site.. I WASTED money on a lyft to get here. I was NOT able to rent my rental and they didn't show much concerned that I desperately needed one and they didn't have any.. No concern or not apologetic either... Why is this business open? Jerks... Nothing was said on any of the sites why i wouldnt be able to and forewarned about that...

Kayak let me book a Hertz rental at Santa Rosa airport which does not have a hertz location. It’s been closed for a few months. I had to go to the Santa Rosa Avenue location instead. This caused a hiccup in my entire travel plans.

We had to wait for a car. The car we got had the check engine light go on within the first couple of hours. Pack of gum under the seat from previous renter: how well did they clean the car?

Staff ServiceInitially the only car available was not satisfactory. Staff went out of their way to find a Toyota Camry which we first selected. The car was in perfect condition and served us well on our travels to Long Beach, CA. Check-in staff were friendly and helpful. Overall it was an excellent rental experience.

GoodPick-up attendant was very accommodating after we realized that I had accidentally selected a different location.There was a discrepancy at drop off related to whether I had accepted liability coverage. I was told the pick-up location would call to resolve it and help me get an accurate receipt. That has not happened and when I called their phone number, I am unable to get through to anyone

Car hire excess insurance in Petaluma

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Petaluma car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Petaluma.


Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Petaluma car rental.
