KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Stockton

  • Public transportation in a new city can be confusing. Car rentals in Stockton will leave you with less time to figure things out and more time to explore what the city has to offer. Being in the heart of California, Stockton places you in a great location to reach popular destinations within short drives. Once you get a car from Stockton car rentals, you can explore places like San Francisco, which is 82 miles away, Sacramento, 49 miles away, or Yosemite, which is 94 miles away. You’ll eliminate the need to transfer buses to get there and cut travel time by a long shot.
  • The Stockton Metropolitan Airport is the closest domestic airport, though it doesn’t provide car rental services. Still, you can rent a car of your choice through KAYAK and have the company pick you up at the airport. If you opt for Sacramento International Airport, you’ll find a free shuttle at the ground level ready to take you to the rental car facility within the airport. From there, you can get an on-airport rental car from companies such as Enterprise, Budget, and Hertz. If you opt for off-site car rentals in Stockton, your car rental company of choice can pick you up at the airport car rental facility.
  • Speeding in local neighborhood streets is a common road offense, so you will want to avoid getting a ticket for it. In California, cyclists are allowed on all highways except specified freeways, so drive carefully to avoid getting into an accident with a cyclist.
  • Traffic congestion in Stockton is not normally something you should be worried about, but the morning commute can be a bit congested. The morning rush hour spans from 6am to 8:30am, so you might want to avoid driving at this time unless it’s necessary. California blizzards can be quite unforgiving, so if you plan to rent a car in Stockton during the winter months, which run from October through March, you should be ready for slick roads, flooding, ice, and high winds. Flash floods can especially be quite hazardous as they strike within minutes.
  • Book your car hire in Stockton at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Stockton are around 30% more expensive than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Stockton

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Stockton?

    Stockton roads are ideal for most types of vehicles, but consider the season and your capacity needs. During the summer months, you could rent a compact car that will allow you to maneuver into traffic or enjoy the open road while traveling to outer regions.

The same goes for school zones, and the limit goes down to 15mph on intersections, alleys, and railway crossings.

The vehicle was just fine. Clean and what is expected. Pick-up and drop-off were easy. The pick-up agent did not fill out the envelope w/vehicle/rental information, however checked the 1/4 tank mark. Vehicle was returned with slightly over 1/4 tank. The rental agreement was then placed inside said envelope and I kept those documents. At drop-off, everything was fine until the final bill where they charged me for a full tank ($130. 30% markup). According to the customer service agent I called, the pickup agent indicated an “full tank”. Even after submitting a picture of the envelope next to the rental agreement the customer service agent was unable to remove the fuel markup. And unwilling to push it to a supervisor at that time. It would need to go to the pickup location to verify first. Not sure what they’ll verify (their agent mis-entered the fuel status). Suppose to hear back in 5-7 business days. Won’t use Hertz again.

We booked full size car and given midsize car instead. We went there twice to get changed. But they wouldn’t and won’t give SUV saying, we pay the difference. Whereas, midsize was being offered at $350 for the same period we paid almost 560+ to book full size car and still got midsize.

we had a midsize reservation but the branch didn't have it. I had a foot sugary and have to carry knee scooter and couldn't use the small car. The representative(s) at the Hertz office were so rude. they called 911 but since we didn't do anything wrong; the police officer didn't say anything to us.

Cons:

THE CAR THAT I WANTED AND PAID FOR ON LINE, WAS NOT AVAILABLE AT HERTZ, EVEN THOUGH THE WEB SITE CONFIRMED THAT IT WAS. GOT A FLAT TIRE ON THE WAS BACK HOME FROM ARKANSAS. THE TOOL THAT YOU USE TO REMOVE THE LUG NUTS WAS STRIPPED OUT, AND ONLY SPUN AROUND THE LUG NUT. HAD TO USE A TOW SERVICE, AND BUY A NEW TIRE. THAT COST ME OVER TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS. ONE OTHER THING...THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS WERE WORN TO THE POINT THAT MADE SEEING WORSE THAN IF I HAD NOT USED THEM. IN CLOSING, HERTZ IS VERY LACKING WITH THEIR BASIC MAINTENANCE INSPECTIONS. SHOULD I EVER HAVE ANOTHER NEED FOR A CAR RENTAL, I WILL USE ENTERPRISE.
