KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in San Fernando

  • San Fernando is known for its many historical sites and unique foods, and driving San Fernando car rentals is the best way for maximum exploration. Again, you can drive to tourist attractions far away, where public transport can’t access. When driving a rental car, you can visit Chino Hills State Park, about 55 miles southeast of the city, Ventura Botanical Gardens, approximately 50 miles west, and around 20 miles northwest of Mount Pinos.
  • If you land at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), you'll find several car rental agencies at the arrivals level near the baggage claim area. These rental agencies include Hertz, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Sixt, Budget, and National. The airport provides free shuttle services that operate every 5 to 10 minutes to connect passengers from the terminals to the car rental offices. Expect to find a vast collection of car rental types, depending on your preference.
  • Driving in San Fernando is thrilling because the roads are in excellent condition, and the drive along the mountains is breathtaking. However, be keen on the road when driving car rentals in San Fernando because the scenic views are attractive to the eyes. In addition, most streets along the mountain drive are narrow. For this reason, maintain the speed limit and use quality driving skills when navigating the turns and curves.
  • You can experience traffic when driving car rentals in San Fernando, especially in the morning and evening rush hours. Road congestion mainly occurs between 6 am and 9 am and 3 pm and 6 pm, and the most affected road is I-5. You can wait to drive after the rush hours or begin your journey earlier to avoid delays. Driving rental cars during winter can be difficult because roads are covered in snow. So, ensure your headlights are on to increase visibility and drive slowly because roads are slippery.
  • Book your car hire in San Fernando at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size hire cars in San Fernando are around 154% more expensive than other car types, on average

    Picking small vehicles when choosing car rentals in San Fernando is the best decision because some roads in the city are narrow. Navigating a small car on narrow streets is more stress-free than driving larger vehicles. Ensure the car you pick is spacious and powerful because of the mountain roads in the city. Again, most roads in the city are in good condition, making it easy to maneuver. In addition, small cars have a lower gravity, hence stability, especially when driving at a higher speed.

  • What’s the speed limit in San Fernando?

    San Fernando is strict on speed limits, which vary depending on the street and zone. When driving on the highways, maintain a speed of 65 mph. On two-lane undivided highways, the maximum speed is 55 mph. If driving on blind railroad crossings, alleys, and blind intersections, maintain a speed of 15 mph and 25 mph when driving near playgrounds, school zones, businesses, and residential districts, and other areas with children present. The city has traffic cameras to monitor driver behavior, prevent speeding, and ensure safety on the road.

  • Where are the best places to park in San Fernando?

    The best, safest, and most spacious place to park is downtown San Fernando. If you need short-term parking, a few places are free for the first 2 hours, including Municipal Lot5, Woodman Van Nuys, Municipal Lot 4, City of San Fernando Lot #2, Municipal Lot #8, and Caltrans Paxton Park & Ride. Aiso Parking Lot charges $1 every hour for the first 2 hours, $3 for 3 hours, and $1.50 for every 15 minutes after 3 hours of parking. You pay $14 for 24 hours and a flat rate of $3 after 5 pm and on weekends. Southwest Parking charges $15 per day. If you park in San Fernando Court A-Lot, you pay a flat rate of $7 per hour.

Pros:

No hidden charges, they had a VERY good attitude which I unfortunately had 2 bad experiences prior with 2 separate rental companies. Very refreshing to have such good staff. They didn’t force insurance on me. And they offered to drop me off after dropping off my rental. Very satisfied.

Cons:

Nothing. It was all good.

Cons:

I returned it to the location I rented from and was told they couldn't give me a ride to the repair shop my car was in. They told me after I had checked in that they could void the return and I could drive to a different location and return it there instead and they would be able to give me a ride from that location. When I did that I was told by the second location that I was a gallon of gas short and they would charge me. The first location checked me in at 5/8 a tank which is where it was when I got the car, but the second location said it was at 1/2 a tank. The 2 locations are only 3.5 miles apart. I could not have used an 1/8 of a tank. 1/8 in a 12 gallon of tank is a gallon and a half. On a compact car a gallon and a half will get you about 40 miles. Again the distance of the 2 locations was nowhere near 40 miles. I even looked at the gas gauge before I exited the car at the second location and it was still at 5/8. I was already running late for work so I didn't bother arguing and just paid their inflated price for a gallon of gas. Very displeased with the nickel and diming and the inaccurate reading.

Pros:

Staff was friendly, but overworked. The car I reserved was available, which I appreciated.

Cons:

There was a long line and only one person working at the desk. The car smelled like mildew pretty strongly. There was a cleanliness seal on the car, but the person who recorded the condition of the car got inside to pull it forward, defeating the purpose of the seal.

Pros:

The staff saved us from the nightmare that Kayak set up. They knowingly deceive customers by making them believe they are renting at LAX and we were instead in Van Nuys. This happens several times a day and staff is very upset because they feel it is a bad reflection on Hertz. Cannot get $ back.

Cons:

Hertz staff kindly worked with us and saved the mess Kayak created. Hertz - you need to remove your company from this Kayak website - ask your wonderful staff!

Pros:

Worst car rental experience I've ever had. The guy renting me the car is an awful person. His name is Ron B. from the Lankershim location. Rude, unprofessional, and outright mean. I got a dirty car that didn't even have a full tank. There were no other cars so I had no option but to take it.

Cons:

Ron B from the Lankershim location I picked up should be fired. I rarely feel this way. Feel free to reach out if you'd like more specifics.
